I have a 2008 Yukon with electrical issues. At random times we will come back to the vehicle being totally dead. No lights, locks, key fob doesn't work and no reaction at all when key is in the ignition. Then, after a while the car will "magically" start and everything works fine. Have had battery replaced, door handle replaced, mega fuse replaced and nothing has worked to this point. GMC can't replicate problem and can't catch it to diagnose it. Any thoughts?

#48 of 169 Yukon Denali developing electronic problems
Jul 01, 2011 (6:29 pm)
I have a 2003 Yukon Denali that is developing some typical electronic problems, as described in this forum.
One of the complaints is that the right rear door ajar message comes on even though the door isn't ajar. I replaced the sender switch in the door a while back and that cured the problem for six months. Now it's back. So far it's an annoyance. I just press the arrow button on the steering wheel and it stops displaying, and I turn off the interior dome lights so they aren't on continuously. But now other symptoms are occurring. The door locks now only work after I push the remote twice. The first push only causes a chime to sound. On the second push the normal sequence of locking events occurs.
I've read that the Body Control Module might be acting up. So I'm suspicious of this. However, I've been told that the BCM has to be programmed to my VIN, so it doesn't sound like a driveway replacement, even if I bought one on the net. And, a local mechanic has cautioned that it could be any number of things, and not to get focused on the BCM. So I'm pretty confused at this point, and don't want to just replace the door switch module again, that's obviously temporary.
Any suggestions as to what might be wrong, and how to tackle the job of making it right?
Thanks for all your help.

Got a possible on a negative battery cable replacement. GMC said they have seen same thing 3 times and this has fixed all three problems. We will see!

arlow1 - I'm having the same issue with my 2001 Yukon and I'm curious if replacing the negative battery cable worked for you. Can you let me know?

It did get fixed but I don't know if it is really fixed yet. My electrical problem only happened every once in a while so not sure yet. The GMC Dealer, who I know so I don't think he is blowing smoke, said this is the fifth time he has seen this same problem and the other four are fixed with no issues. He seems confident but said if it doesn't work to bring it back in.

#54 of 169 Yukon Denali 2011 Radio no power
Aug 14, 2011 (10:00 am)
I'm new here and glad I found this furom.
I recently bought a 2011 Denali, 3 months ago. Now my radio/stereo/nav does not work. It has no power. I try to turn it on but it is stuck on the blue screen with the clock. I am planning to take it to the dealer soon, when I have time. Any idea what might be the problem?
It did this problem once before while I was driving the radio died, but started working the next day. This time 4 days no luck.
