2000 GMC Safari Problems

Door Locks Stop Working

The power door locks may stop working in one or more doors due to a failed actuator. Replacement of the failed actuator should correct this concern.

Check Engine Light With Code P1870

Vehicles equipped whit a 4 speed automatic transmission may develop a harsh 1-2 shift and/or illumination of the Check Engine Light with code P1870 stored. This can be caused by wear of the bore for the TCC isolator and regulator valves in the valve body. This condition does not commonly occur until the transmission reaches normal operating temperature. If the valve body is worn, replacement will be necessary to correct this concern.

Check Engine Light/Rough Idle Due to Stuck Open EGR Valve

The EGR valve may stick open causing a rough idle and the Check Engine Light light to illuminate. Our technicians tell us that a piece of carbon may become stuck in the valve causing this problem. Cleaning the valve will usually correct this condition, in some rare cases the valve will need to be replaced.

2000 GMC Safari Reviews

After 50,000 miles the vehicle will not start after it rains,and if it does,it does not start without a lot of cranking. If it doesn't start the "check ingine light" may come on... the Crank sensor will throw a code that may indicate what the problem could be. But after rain, the problem probably will return.
