2001 Chevrolet Suburban 2500 Problems

Power Brake Units May Leak Fluid From Hydro-Boost Unit

Power brake systems using "hydro-boost" may leak power steering fluid from the hydro-boost unit located behind the brake master cylinder. Replacement of the hydro-boost unit is the common repair to correct this concern.

Instrument Panel Lights Flickering and Exterior Lights Intermittent

The headlight switch used on the Chevrolet Suburban 2500 is known to fail through normal operation. Since the headlight switch is also integrated into the interior lights, a malfunctioning switch can cause issues with interior lights as well.

  • Symptoms of a failed headlight switch include:
  • Headlights and taillights failing to turn on or off
  • Interior lights flicker, or fail to turn on or off
  • Gauge cluster lighting off or flickering with headlights on
  • Parking light malfunctions  

This issue is well known with General Motors Trucks and SUVs, and is solved by testing and, if needed, replacing the headlight/dimmer switch. Bad grounding wires at the tail-lights, and dirty/corroded tow package wires can also lead to some of these issues. 

The Fuel Pump May Fail Causing the Engine to Stall or Crank Over But Not Start

The fuel pump may fail causing the engine to stall and not restart. Our technicians recommend replacing the fuel filter every 30,000 miles to help prevent undue strain on the fuel pump.

My wife and I just bought our 2001 Suburban 2500 with only 89,000 miles on it. For one we got a great deal, and two this vehicle is by far the nicest and most comfortable vehicle we've ever owned. The second row bucket seats make it so much easier for our kids to get in and the leather is great. I've always been a fan of the 6.0 Liter engine and ours came with a polished K&N Intake kit too! ...
