Jan 18, 2013 (8:25 pm)
the reason for the extra amp is the fact that somehow my radio that was replaced with the nav by a used car dealership that i bought it from put in the wrong radio cause you know gm has to have specific radios per envoy god forbid you try to put in aftermarket but after buying a used amp and it still not working took it a gm dealership who should be recognized (thank you Mastria), and 3 nav systems later got somebody at gm who told them that we needed a specific radio at a tune of 1800.00 thank you again Mastria for getting gm to eat that one!! any way get some #'s off of it and see what we can do.

#180 of 185 2002 envoy Starting issues and then running issues
Feb 04, 2013 (11:45 am)
Yesterday I had a problem with starting the car 2002 Envoy. I pulled up in driveway to get my son and got out turned off the car so he could drive and use his key. Before he started the car I showed him how I reprogrammed the key fobs a few days prior and that they worked now so I locked the car and unlocked using the fob. He then went to start the car and it said driver 1 and wouldn't start. I figured it was because I used driver 1 fob. And his key is just a spare key with no fob and always said driver 2 when he used it prior. So my initial thought was that we freaked it out and it went into security mode since it was acting like injectors weren't working but there was no security light on or flashing. I tried a few times gave up and took another car. Came back a few hours later and still no start. I tried a couple of the security tricks nothing. So i disconnected negative cable turned on headlight switch and waited 10 minutes. Hooked everything back up and still nothing. So I disconnected it again and left it overnight. Went back today hooked it back up and it started. Drove home and got about 10 miles and it acted as if I was running out of gas so i pulled to the side and put it in park. The vehicle was idling fine and gauges were working so I got back on the rode drove about 5 more miles and it did it again this time it died and and was back to where I was last night. I tried the 10 minute disconnect trick waited 15 minutes still nothing then reprogrammed remotes still nothing then called a tow truck and its now sitting in my driveway waiting for an answer or for it to start. I have the negative cable off and the light switch on to try and reset computer again. Any other tricks to try???? Any ideas on what to fix????
#182 of 185 2003 Envoy SLE electric harness fire
Aug 21, 2013 (10:39 am)
Has this happened to anyone? We were driving along in our 2003 GMC Envoy, purchased new one owner never had any problems before. The SUV ran perfectly. Going through a school zone at 25mph we began to smell a bad odor. We pulled over at the first parking lot and turned the car off, opened the hood and smoke began to pour out of the engine. The relay fuse center block was smoldering. We disconnected the positive side of the battery. The car turned itself ON - No key in the ignition. The car still was smoking. The battery disconnected.
We had it towed. Filed an insurance claim....claim denied! The result is the relay fuse center has a 2 inch burned hole completely through it. The engine electric harness is fried and the total cost to repair it between $1000-2500, if and this is from the dealer they can find the parts. What to do now? We have quite an expensive paperweight. Has this happened to anyone else? I have researched and see that this is common in newer models. Thanks!

#185 of 185 Rear Lift Module
Oct 17, 2013 (6:37 am)
I recently took my husbands 2006 Envoy in to have the door switch (recall) repaired. I plan to sell it as he passed away in June. I unlocked the car with the remote and drove it 20 miles to the dealership. They supposedly repaired the switch and I drove the car home and parked it. A few days later my son-in-law noticed that the rear lift gate would not lock as he put something in the car. I attempted to lock the car with the remote and neither remote worked. I could lock the doors manually but rear lift gate still would not lock and rear windshield wipers did not work. I called the dealership and they said to bring it back in. While I was waiting one of the sales people came in and, having noticed the for sale sign in the car, asked if I would be interested in selling it to them for $4000 less than the blue book value. I declined, but told him I would reconsider if it didn't sell. Shortly after this discussion, I was informed that the rear lift gate module was bad, but they could repair it for $440. Since everything worked fine prior to their repair of the recalled door switch, I'm wondering if anyone else has had this problem and just how the rear lift gate module would suddenly stop functioning in a car that hasn't been driven. Also wondering if it is common for a rear lift gate module to suddenly stop working.
