I talked w/ my local chevy dealer regarding the letter and they said a recall hasn't been issued yet. The letter was merely to inform owners of the fuel pump/wiring problem and the associated symptoms and that a fix is on the way. Once the solution is available, the recall will be issued.
My fuel pump makes a very load whining noise and I plan on replacing it when the recall is issued. From what I understand, the tank will need to be dropped to fix the wiring problem, I'm going to see if the dealer will cut me a break on labor if I have them drop a new pump in.

I picked up the burb from the dealer... He isn't sure. I read in another post about a bad radio - Who knows. I decided to juice the battery up all the way and I pulled about 10 fuses, Radio, power seats, heated mirrors, etc - Anything that has larger draw and could be used when vehicle is off. I'm going to put the fuses back in 1 or 2 at a time and monitor when this occurs. I usually can't get more than a day out of the battery so if I put one in and the volt meter is on the high side of 14, I'll assume that isn't the circuit.
If anyone has seen this problem before, let me know.. Thanks!

Can anyone enlighten me as to the differences in Models LT, LS, LSE, AND SLT?
Also, What is the performance difference between a low altitude & high altitude Diesel 6.5 engine, if any?
#282 of 1043 Ignition bypass switch
Aug 25, 2005 (4:38 pm)
I have a 99 chevy suburban K1500 I exported to Argentina. I had to install a new motor in the US just before exporting it. The engine started a bad knock, maybe a rod, 500 miles after we were rearended in Atlanta. Started with a slight ticking noise just after the accident, then total failure. I think I'm going to make a claim against the insurance company of the person that rearended us. Now for my question. I live in Buenos Aires and want to install a simple toggle switch to disable the ignition or the coil. Is this possible with the passlock system. Will I cause it to engage and mess the system up? Just found this board and it is great. This is my third Suburban, had a 86 k2500 6.2 diesel and another 99 K1500.

The difference between the LS and LT is the leather seating. I think the same for the sle and slt in the GMC suburbans. Not familiar with the differences in a low and high altitude diesel.

Having trouble diagnosing this...
Ignition has been inconsistent, clicking, then not turning over - wiat 5 min, then it's fine again until this morning.... starter problem?
Also, Both taillights/brakes are out, but it is the whole piece not the bulbs - Is this possible, or is it some sort of electrical problem, also trouble with pass windows, and wipers - Seems like it's all tied together...Please help.

We had similar problems and it was the battry cables. The positive side on ours is a two cable thing and they were dirty between the two cables. Might also be the battery.
#286 of 1043 suburban rear seat audio control problems
Aug 26, 2005 (5:54 pm)
hi i have a 2000 suburban LT. I realized that the rear audio controls dont work. I know it used to work. When I plug headphones in and press the power button, nothing happens and the little power light doesnt turn on either.Is there anyway to fix this problem. perhaps a fuse? I still use the factory delco radio but i recently had a subwoofer installed. could that be the problem?

Check your fuse first, if it is good, suspect the install of the new subwoofer.
