#59 of 97 2007 GMC Yukon XL Issues with Remote Start and Power
Oct 13, 2008 (12:46 pm)
I've had my 2007 Yukon XL for about 2 years now and I've recently had a ton of issues with my Remote Start and not having any Power to the entire vehicle.
1. When I attempt to use the remote start, there is a loud pop sound coming from inside the hood. When that happens, the lights flicker on and off inside the vehicle and resets the clock in the car. Now I don't want this to sound like it happens all the time but it happens probably once a week.
2. The second problem I'm having now is I will try and unlock my vehicle with my Key FOB and the doors will not unlock. When I manually unlock the vehicle none of the lights work inside and I also will put the key in the ignition and the vehicle will not crank over.
Has anyone had this similar problem and what they did to fix it? Thanks!

One more thing about my issue. Issue number two will exist for about an hour or two and then the car will act like nothing ever happened but the clock is reset.

I have a 2002 Yukon XL with the exact same problems you have mentioned. It all started this summer, 8/08. My sister's 2003 Yukon XL also has the exact same problems you describe. Has anyone been able to come up with a solution? Do you think this has been a recalled item with the Yukon XL.???

We have had no luck figuring out what it was. We thought it might be the AC compressor. We put it in the shop and they ran all the tests and they said everything was fine.
Does yours only do it when the AC is on? My husband wonders if it is the belt tensioner. Good luck. Let me know if you figure it out.

Dec 22, 2008 (12:33 pm)
Wondering if anyone has had this problem: 12/22/08 1:25pm I attempted to start my truck using the remote start feature like I do every morning before I go to work, But this time it would not work, I had to go out and start the truck manually WTF, then things gets really good, I have an alarm showing that none of the tire have AIR in them per the Tire Monitor System, so I call ONstar to have them check remotely, they stated everything appears to be working correctly at this time. Now forthe really good stuff: I remotely started the truck this morning to take the kids to their dental appt. and everything work great no problem what so ever with anything on the truck. I'm taking it in on friday 12/26 to have GMC take look at it. The service guy stated it sounds like something very wrong....Shocker, but they good guys and i hope they can fix the issue for no charge. Thx John

John I had a similar problem last winter. I drove from MA to CA to spend the winter there. Half way across country the remote start or unlock would not work until I was standing next to the car. Also, one tire would report low pressure. I put a new battery in the remote but it did not improve. Both problems continued for the 3 months I was there. The tire monitor worked sporadically. I figured when I got home I'd have the dealer look at it.
When I got home both problems disappeared before I saw the dealer and never returned.
I've just chalked it up to the Yukon gremlins that are always messing with me. Windows that decide not to work (until engine restart), battery that drains in 15 minutes, door locks that engage while I'm gassing the car ....
Let me know if your dealer finds the problem.

Took the truck to my dealership this morning and my man Rob just called to tell me the following, he stated that it appears that the truck just lost its mind, they reprogrammed the computer and everything is working correctly at this time. He also stated that I may want to check into getting the onbroad computer replaces (Like we have $$$$ just hanging around , He stated that reprogramming would cost $99.00, so I'm going up to get the truck in a minute. Thx John

I love that diagnosis! The car lost its mind!!!! I forgot to tell you the other thing my car does - it forgets the memory position for the seat. 1 out of 3 times it goes to the wrong position. No rhyme or reason. I think I'm going to assume the car just has a mind of its own and just likes to mess with me!

I am having a problem with my 2007 Yukon. The remote key pads do not work and my key does not work all the time in the door lock. When it's really cold out, the key won't go in the lock all the way and when it does, the lock slowely rises to unlock the car. I took it to get looked at and the dealer said my keypads are fine, it's something in the computer. I have to take it back to be put on the diagnostic machine. Has anyone experienced this? All other electrical systems seem to be fine.
