2005 Cadillac Escalade Problems
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 power door lock actuators may become slow to operate or stop working completely and require replacement.
One or more heater & AC (HVAC) air delivery and/or temperature mode door actuator may fail. This can result in incorrect air delivery or temperature. If this occurs, fault code(s) stored in the HVAC control module should be available to assist with diagnoses.

2005 Cadillac Escalade Recalls
The second row center seat belt routing may make it difficult to position correctly on smaller passengers. If the seat belt rides up to fit around the abdomen, the risk of internal injury is increased in a crash. Dealers will cut the guide loop, remove a portion of the loop, and the remaining sides should be folded over and secured with a retainer. The recall began July 21, 2005. The GM recall number is 05037.
Under certain conditions, the shift lever position indicator located in the instrument cluster may not illuminate. If the indicator does not illuminate, the driver may not know which gear the vehicle is in. This could result in the vehicle moving in an unintended direction, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will reprogram the instrument panel cluster to correct this concern. This recall is expected to begin on February 14, 2005. The General Motors recall number is 05023.
