#524 of 1043 Shoulder harness belts in SUVs
Dec 30, 2005 (10:39 pm)
We are currently considering purchasing a 2003 Chevy Suburban Z71 and we were surprised that the middle seat in the back third row only had a lap belt (no shoulder harness belt). This was very surprising to us. Has anyone else found this to be a problem and what did you do to remedy the situation?
We are in need of being able to have all 5 seats in the back to have shoulder harness belts due to having children sitting in these seats.
We are looking for an aftermarket resource for a Chevy Suburban SUV that sells shoulder harness seat belts for the middle seat in the third row in the back seat. And then we have to find someone qualified to install this system (if available).
Lap belts (currently in the middle, only) are considered not as safe for children so I'm surprised that the three seats in the third row don't each have shoulder harness belts.
Any suggestions or recommendations would be greatly appreciated! We live in the Kansas City area, so if you know of any businesses in this area that can address our situation, that info would also be helpful.
#525 of 1043 hum in front en
Dec 31, 2005 (2:46 pm)
I have an 01 sub and it recently started making a low pitched hum coming from the front end. It sounds a lot like the sound agressive mud-grip tires make on a paved road. I am currently running Pirelli Scorpion HWY tires that have about 15,000 miles on them and they are in good condition. I suspected the tires but it makes the noise on any road surface! I rotated the tires and that did not help matters. I suspected a wheel bearing but while I was rotating the tires I noticed that the sub has sealed bearings! So much for checking that. Anyone have any suggestions.
#526 of 1043 2001 suburban stalls at low rpm
Jan 01, 2006 (7:53 pm)
2001 2500, 8.1ltr,is stalling at low rpm we have replaced the fuel pump, battery, clean injection system, replaced spark plugs and we still have problems. I have read that changing the crankshaft sensor will fix problem. Can anyone verify this?

If it is a crank shaft position sensor it should give you some rough engine performance with higher rpm too and certainly engine should be running really rough idle before it shuts off.
Have you checked the idle air valve? I'm not sure but I would guess your engine has one. The newer engines, like in my '04 Tahoe 5.3 L, the idle air is controlled with the electronic throttle. Older engines used to have a separate idle air valve, which controls the air flow to engine when throttle is full closed.
Idle air valve in many cases looks like a small electric motor mounted in the side of the throttle body. This is because it usually is a 'step motor' that is used to control the valve opening.
Can you keep the engine running close to idle speed by holding the throttle open just a little bit? If you can your problem most likely is with the idle air valve.

Check the recall on your 2001 for a fuel module reservoir assemblies. This can cause stalling and starting problems

If your motor will not crank, your problem is one of 2 things.
Most likely a sticking starter solenoid. Either replace the solenoid on the starter or the starter / solenoid combonation itself.
The other less likely is the ignition switch.
Tell you what. If you do not replace a faulty starter soleniod, you may very well be replacing the ignition switch, wiring or connectors along with it.
I believe the other problems are just a coincedence and require further checking.

I have an'04 Burb and had the same problem with steering and replace the junk Firestones with an 8-ply truck tire and it is doing much better.

Out of curiosity do either switches work to make the window go up? Drivers side switch or switch at the window? If one switch works and the other doesn't could be loose wire, dirty switch or bad switch. Otherwise if both switches don't work, I would guess bad or burnt out motor. You could wire 12VDC to it directly to check and see if that drives it. Good Luck!

Do you remeber the part number for that?
