The inside and outside door handles are prone to breaking.

It is common for the fuel level sensor in the fuel tank read the fuel level incorrectly. The sensor must be replaced to correct the condition. Our technicians recommend having the complete fuel pump module replaced on high mileage vehicles.

The steering wheel position sensor may fail, resulting in the service stability message being displayed.

The problem happens almost every time the car sits over night. When I take it have the battery checked, they say it is fully charged. Could something be draining the battery?

Are there checks or do I need it diagnosed with codes?
I checked my owners manual and it really doesn't get into it as to whether it is locking system that is causing it or if it is an actual engine problem. Nothing shows obvious under the hood. Checked fluid levels and they seem to be okay...

The ignition switch actuator can bind causing the ignition switch to stick in the "start" position. If this were to occur the actuator can unexpectedly release, cause the ignition switch to snap back into the "Accessory" position. This would cause the engine to turn off with an associated loss of brake and steering power assist. If these conditions were to lead to a crash the airbags may not deploy as expected. Dealers will inspect and replace the ignition lock housing as necessary to correct this concern.

All late model vehicles are equipped with a "Shift interlock" system that prevents vehicles with and automatic transmission from being shifted out of the Park position under certain conditions. Some of these vehicles are being recalled because they may have been assembled with a broken park lock cable or a malformed steering column lock actuator gear. Failure of these components can allow the shifter to be moved out of the Park position with the ignition key removed or in the off position. This can cause the vehicle to roll away unexpectedly increasing the risk of injury or a crash. Dealers will inspect the recalled vehicles and replace the steering column as necessary.

 

 

The intermediate steering shaft attaching bolts may not have been tightened to the proper specification. This could allow the steering shaft to separate.

The General Motors recall number is 11191.

The 2007 Cadillac Escalade really has no equal in regard to ride and handling among the large SUVs. Although it delivers a mean exhaust bark, the "400hp" engine actually lacks a little bite compared to other larged sized vehicles with similar available power like the Silverado Pick-ups and the Ford Heavy Duty line and other full-sized trucks. What it lacks in overall power, it more than tries t...

If anyone know this problem please let me know. I put the key to start my 07 escalade, all the power on the vehicle shuts off. I hear a clicking at the gas peddle my cd player keeps clicking and the battery light flashes 3 times.
