Sounds like grounding or relay issues to me. Is it possible your battery is going? Have you checked your cables are the connections clean. My mercedes wagon started doing strange things and it was the battery going. Have your battery put through a load test and see how she's working under a full amp load, if it's not up to the task funny things will happen, like you describe.

A reporter would like to hear from consumers who have recently purchased a larger SUV, perhaps even trading in another large SUV for the newer one. If you have a story to share, please contact predmunds.com with your daytime contact info., city/state of residence and the make/model you traded/bought no later than Thurs. a.m., Sept. 1.

Warlock, have you determined whct the cause of this problem is.
I and several other s have the same issue.

I would like to have the tow hooks installed on my Yukon XL. They are only a $38 option, but were not put on mine. I have 2 wheel drive and suspect I may need to be dragged out of the sand or off a slippery boat ramp one day. My question is, is it easy to install them myself, or do I have to have the dealer do it? Or is it really necessary, since the frame is easily accessed through those small holes in the bumper?

First, expect to pay more than 38 bucks for them from the dealer. Second, it will depend on your mechanical skills. The install is easy and straight forward, just make sure you use the same bolts the manufacturer would use or they could fail when you need them most.
#294 of 1043 Engine shuts down/stalls

We are about to put our 3rd fuel pump in our "96 suburban. It will shut down with no warning, we pull to the side of the road and it starts right back up. No warning lights come on. Dios don't show any problems. We replaced the filter and it happened again. When the other fuel pumps were replaced it was because the truck would not start - the new problem is different than before.Could it be something besides the fuel pump or are GM fuel pumps crap? A friend had a similar problem with their jeep and it was a sensor.

We didn't get a letter regarding the fuel pump but we are having trouble. Does the letter address stalling /engine shutdown. Please see #294 for our problems.

I have a 2001 Suburban and have had this problem 3 times this year. FIrst we disconnected the hood light (comes on when you raise the hood), that was advice of dealer. Then it happened again and thought I finally tracked it to the drivers power seat. Disconnected that fuse and it ran perfectly for 2 months. It is dead again. I am considering disconnecting the battery between uses.

J2wice, I hope you found out what was going on with your ride, if so, please share the answer.... I'm having a similar problem with my 91 suburban.
I can start the thing sometimes, but it floods pretty bad. Sometimes when it won't start, the ignitions fires, but the injectors won't. Then, just to make things confusing, the Injectors fire, but then the ignition won't...... We replaced the computer, the fuel pump, the fuel pressure regulator, and some fuses.... Anyone out there know of any ideas?
