#424 of 1099 2004 GMC YUKON DENALI XL PROBLEM
Apr 24, 2006 (4:29 pm)
I BOUGHT MY DENALI BRAND NEW I HAVE ABOUT 60K MILES. FOR THE LAST 2 WEEKS I HAVE BEGUN TO NOTICE THAT EVERY TIME I DRIVE IT IT STALLS. IT IS LIKE I WILL TAKE OFF AND WHILE IM PRESSEING THE GAS IT WILL NOT RESPOND, ABOUT 3-5 SECONDS WILL PAST AND THEN I CAN RESUME DRIVING. WHILE ITS IN THE STATE WHERE ITS NOT RESPONDING TO THE ACCELERATION, IM NOTICING A CLUNKING NOISE FROM UNDER THE HOOD ON THE DRIVER'S SIDE.

I hope someone can help but I'd advise that you turn off your CAPS LOCK. People tend to ignore messages typed in ALL CAPS.

The following works only if you have the pre-'07 factory touchscreen nav--press and release the "Nav Rpt" button, then immediately (i.e., don't wait more than a second or two) press and hold the "Config" button until the diag screen appears (typically takes around 10 seconds). Once the diag screen appears, press any of the softkeys at your own risk...
$440??? Is that just to repair the cluster, or to replace it? In either case, you'd be better off ordering an Escalade Platinum instrument cluster from a GM/Delphi-authorized odometer repair facility (SOT Electronics is one place that comes to mind); it looks much better than the Denali cluster, plus it won't cost you anywhere near $400--depending on where you're located, you're probably looking at around $300 shipped. I assume that if they're telling you that it'll cost $440, your vehicle is probably out of factory warranty?
#428 of 1099 2003 Youkon fuel pump
May 01, 2006 (4:41 pm)
I took my 2003 Yukon to the dealer for a check engine light. They determined that the fuel pump needed to be replaced. Upon replacement, the dionogistic code showed contaminated fuel, apparently metal from the fuel pump had gotten into the gas. Of course, it was a full tank. I have an extended warranty but it won't cover the lost gas. My question is. How could the fuel pump be broken and the truck still run. I'm thinking that they broke the pump removing it and should replace the gas. Any thoughts?

I have a 04 DXL and have the same problem with the surge coming from the heating system. The surge is occurring only on the front passenger side. I took it to the dealer 2X and they said that it was acting normal. The problem still exists but only when the heat is on. No surge when the AC is used. Has anyone been able to determine what is causing this surge to occur??
The rear heater starting blowing cold all the time. I took it back to the dealer and the dealer said there was a bulliten and it was covered under warranty. So that is fixed.
My latest problem is the speedometer. I hit the gas and it went to 120mph. When at idle it sits around 70mph. I took it to the dealer and they have ordered a new cluster guage. Should have that in within 2-3 days.

We just got the 06 Denali in December, only 6K miles on it now. Going to SD the 15th may. Seats begining to show wear on Driver getting in and out. Seem very thin. Will let you know more later. Otherwise has been a beautiful vehicle on the trips.

Unfortunately this is nothing new on the '01-'06 GM fullsize SUVs w/ leather seating surfaces...I have the same issue on my '04 DXL. I think the issue is that the only parts of the front seats that are leather are where you plop your butt and the lower/mid-back area. Unless the leather in these areas of your seat are also showing signs of wear, you'll find that the part of the seat that typically shows the most wear are the sides of the seat where your thighs rest. Assuming your local dealer doesn't give you the "We won't replace it 'cuz it's normal" schtick, I'd wait until your factory warranty is about to expire before having the seat covers replaced...unless of course they're already worn out to the point that they have to be replaced now...since odds are that the replacement covers will eventually do the same thing.

My question is I have this leak in the front end, so far its been very small, but I placed some cardboard under the front and its coming from the center axle hub towards the driver side wheel. For the life of me I can't see it anywhere. it feels like gearlube not oil. and now that the days are getting warmer I see its happening alot more, but still can't physically see it. Any clues ?
