#62 of 80 2004 Yukon XL 2500 XLT Speedometer issue
Nov 17, 2012 (10:10 am)
I too am experiencing issues with the speedometer in our 2004 Yukon XL 2500 XLT. We first experienced it a couple years ago pulling our travel trailer. It happens only intermittently, but I am very concerned now that our daughter is old enough to drive and I donít want her causing an accident if she reacts to a grossly inaccurate speedometer gauge (e.g moving 55MPH but gauge is 85MPH). Looking now to see what it will take to fix it, I canít believe the number of GMC owners experiencing this same issue. Regardless if this is a formal recall or not (though it should be), why hadnít we been notified of the issue and the resolution path? I donít recall ever receiving a notification via our monthly OnStar Vehicle Diagnostic report, email, nor snail mail. We purchased the vehicle new and GM has all our contact information. I look to GM to do the right thing and resolve this serious safety hazard ASAP.
Thank you for this forum...
#63 of 80 Same GMC Yukon Issue
Nov 18, 2012 (7:23 pm)
I am having the same issue with my 2004 GMC Yukon. For a while my gear lights were very dim, then the gauges would either stop working or get stuck, finally every gauge died out and no longer come on. I brought it to my mechanic and he said that I need a whole new Instrument Cluster as he could not get it to come on and stay on. My husband ended up calling GM and was told that this was not a recall, but rather a "Safety Bulletin." The rep also admitted that they look a bit like an advertisement rather than a Safety Notice. I never recall receiving one even though we are the original owners of the vehicle. I can't believe that GM would admit that there is a faulty part in a vehicle by issuing a safety bulletin yet put a limit on when it can be replaced, 7 years or 75,000 miles in this case. Well, my vehicle has 120,000 miles on it so it looks like I'm out of luck according to GM. This is extremely disappointing as trying to order the part has proved to be a hassle. The part itself is about $200 then they want a $300 core charge until you return the old cluster. I was hoping GM would make good on the issue and am still holding out hope for this American company. I hope that someone responds and makes this right for all of us. I don't know how much longer I can wait and drive around with a non-functioning dash. Please take the time to respond GM Customer Service. Thank you.

SARAH IS THERE NOTHING THAT CAN BE DONE IN REGUARD TO A WAVE PLATE GOING OUT ONLY A FEW MONTHS AFTER MY POWER TRAIN WARRANTY IS VOID? I AM STILL UNDER ON MILES, HOWEVER IT WAS PURCHASED IN 2007 AND IS A 2008 ACADIA. THIS IS VERY UPSETTING. IVE ONLY HAD THIS VEHICLE NOT EVEN A FULL YEAR.
#66 of 80 DO I have a lemon? Host of issues I need help
Dec 01, 2012 (7:09 pm)
I went from a 99 Chevy Suburban to a 2003 Yukon and it's funny the similarities are on issues. The Burb lost most of it's illumination before I trade it in but I have a bad vibration in the rear when towing, but never felt the vibration under regular driving.
Now for the 2003 Yukon. Mirrors do not adjust anymore, they will fold in and out but that is it, Passenger mirror does not defrost nor dim at night. Driver side does defrost and dim. Driver seat heat stopped working. Driver seat controls for fwd and back now work in reverse. So, to move the seat forward, you have the push the power seat button back etc.
I see there is a recall on my cluster because my gear selector and Tachometer do not light up. My Speedometer works 75% of the time. I use a Garmin GPS to monitor the correct speed.
Last week I had the transfer case rebuilt (pump vibrated a hole through the rear casing which is know for 2001-2006 trucks and SUVs. Trucks show even has a video out showing how the problems occurs and GM, that is why the 2007 transfer case was redesigned... I also had the rear u-joints on the axle replaced do to vibration coming from the rear. Then I had the rear axle balance. I towed a boat today (3500-4000 lbs) which is the first real load since the transfer case, u-joints and axle were fixed and the truck vibrates like crazy from 35 mph up to 70 mph. I had the trailer/tow on and off to test and I was in 2 wheel drive. This is the same vibration I had on the 99' Suburban. I have 150,000 miles on the Yukon and we do not beat on this vehicle. We use to tow boats, snowmobiles and our 3 kids and 2 dogs. But why so many problems? Seriously? Any input on the mirror issues, the driver seat heater and/or severe vibration under load? We took a ride tonight with the whole family inside and the vibration is not there....I am really stump, do I have a lemon?
#67 of 80 Fix for Odometer/Cluster display.
Jan 11, 2013 (4:47 pm)
Hi everyone. I have this same issue, but I took the "Out-of-the-box" approach to fix this problem. I own a small 7" Android Tablet (Archos 70 Internet Tablet). I found the app "TORQUE" (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.prowl.torque&hl=en) on the Android market. I also purchased a cheap OBDII Bluetooth adapter (http://compare.ebay.com/like/200827253317?var=lv<yp=AllFixedPriceItemTypes&va- r=sbar). For around $45, I was able to replace my entire dashboard with my tablet. I have not only gotten more information on my new cluster, but I can also read any engine errors and all diagnostic codes. I can also see my efficiency and engine stats in real time.

Thank you. This will be a huge help since I just found out the recall for the cluster when the gear selector is not showing expired 2010. Nice, does that mean that all vehicles that currently have this problem, that are on the road, are now considered safe? I just cannot figure the logic when there is a recall GM make Zero effort to contact current owners since I have had this vehicle since 2005. We received notices when we use to own a Toyota 4 Runner.
#69 of 80 2005 GMC Yukon XL Speedometer stuck
Jan 22, 2013 (5:58 am)
I have a question regarding my stuck speedometer. If my speedometer is stuck at different places at different times, is there a recall or warranty to get this fixed by GMC if I bought the Yukon used?
Note: I have had past issues with the transmission and battery and had to replace both, costing me $3,000.
Please help me!
