2004 Chevrolet Suburban 1500 Questions

Why does my "traction control" engage on dry pavement from a dead stop? (1 answer)

This is an intermittent problem but is increasing in frequency. Truck has 200K in miles. My research on-line yields mostly speed sensors may be dirty or need replacement in from wheels.

After sitting still in traffic my suburban overheats. (1 answer)

New thermostat, reservoir very full, heater blows cold. It overheats in 5 minutes @ 2k rpm rev. Both radiator hoses are hot. I don't know what the next step is.

Why does my car not have any sound, the door ajar sound doesn't even work. Also the 12volt plugin doesn't work (1 answer)

2004 Chevrolet Suburban 1500 Recalls

Fuel May Leak from Fuel Rail

The retainer clip for the fuel rail pulse damper may fracture and allow the damper to come loose from the fuel rail. A fuel leak in the presence of an ignition source may result in a fire. Dealers will replace the engine fuel rail pulse damper free of charge. The recall began August 31, 2006. The GM recall number is 06080.

Rear Seat Belt for Smaller Passengers May Not Fit Correctly

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.

Hydraulic Brake Booster May Fail

On vehicles equipped with the Bosch hydraulic brake booster, the boost pressure accumulator may crack and break away from the hydro-boost assembly during normal operation. If this were to happen while the hood is open, fragments from the accumulator could injure people standing in the immediate area. The loss of fluid while driving would cause increased steering and braking effort and a crash could occur without warning. Dealers will test the hydro-boost assembly for function of the two-function valve. If the hydro-boost assembly fails the test, it will be replaced free of charge. The recall began March 23, 2005. The GM recall number is 05006.

Have had this Z71 'burb since 2009 (and 64,000 miles) with very little problems in 30,000 miles. I am looking into a possible bad left rear shock and something just began causing the fuel and ammeter to peg out occasionally. Runs great, good power, fair gas mileage.
