#61 of 72 Re: How to replace burned out light on Steering Wheel controls [kts0347]
Sep 06, 2010 (7:10 am)
Just an update. I learned on another forum that the buttons in the steering wheel of the Denali are just push in modules that seat in the soft rubber surround of the steering wheel. They are integrated switch modules that contain a small circuit board, illuminating lights and rocker switches for the control features. When the light burns out you have to replace the entire assembly as the bulb is not independently replaceable. It is soldered to the circuit board.
To remove it, the best method is to make a tool out of a piece of heavy gauge wire, putting an "L" bend in it to make a "hook." Push the hook wire in the space between the switch and the rubber surround, and then rotate it 90 degrees after it clears the backside of the switch (about 1 inch deep). Pull straight out. (Alternate procedure - use the sharp points of two small knives on opposing sides of the module, to work/lever the plastic module out of the cavity.) There is a wire harness at the back of the module. A small flat blade screw driver will allow you to release the harness clip as there is insufficient clearance for your fingers. Don't pull hard on the harness - there isn't much slack. The replacement GM part number for the seek/volume switch is 1999443. Buy a new part from the dealer (about $25), re-clip the harness using the screwdriver as an aid, and just push the module back into the cavity to re-seat it. Job done.

Please help. I'm new here. I have a 2007 Denali with the Nav/Radio/XM/DVD. We went by Best Buy and asked them what we'd need to play our Ipod touch in the truck to play movies for our daughter. They told us since we had the video ports on the back of the center console we could use that. I tried that today and the video will show up on the front screen but not on the rear screen. I tried looking through the manual to see if I needed to do something special for it to move the rear screen but had no luck. I thought maybe it would switch once I put in drive (since it has that lockout feature) but that didn't work either. Does anyone have any suggestions on what else we could try? We seriously bought the Ipod touch just for this purpose!!! Trying to avoid the collection of DVD's in the truck!!! Thanks for any help.

It's been a longgggg process, most of which has been met with dead ends. I finally bought a new radio/nav unit and had it installed. Cost me a fortune but radio is again working. I have no confidence that the problem won't return and the vehicle battery will probably go dead again by next spring from the as-yet unidentified drain. The two problems are separate apparently. Cost so far is in excess of $600. Had to pay a dealer to reprogram the radio ID, etc. too.
#66 of 72 07 Yukon random engine noise in rear speakers
Jul 09, 2012 (3:29 pm)
I have 2007 5.3L GMC Yukon with 64k miles. Recently, I started to experience an annoying high pitched whine that seems to come from the rear speakers. It fluctuates with the engine noise and rises in pitch when I step on the gas. It does this randomly about 1-2 times a month for a few minutes while we’re in the car. The stereo is the stock Bose system. I am the only owner and have not added any aftermarket items/systems. There aren’t any auxiliary items plugged into the interior power ports (no TV system or MP3 player). The noises DOSEN’T go away if I turn down the radio volume or turn off the radio. We are going on a 12 hour trip in a few weeks and I am fearful we may experience this during the trip…
Any thoughts or ideas?

I have the same issue, except they already replaced the rear equalizer and the rear speakers were blown. That was on the right rear and now it's happening on the left rear. It stops when the radio is turned off, but makes the noise again when I turn on the blinker and sometimes when I step on the brakes. The dealership says they have to duplicate the noise and of course it doesn't do it when I take it there.
