The tail light wiring harness in the cargo area is not protected very well. As a result it may become damaged due to normal wear a tear. This damage can causing some or all of the rear lights to stop working.

2002 GMC Savana 1500 Problems
Various electrical components under the front carpet/rubber mat may become damaged if excess water is used to clean the rear cargo area.
The spark plugs should be replaced every 100,000 miles. Our technicians recommend replacing the spark plug wires also at this time.
Extended life coolant may become contaminated and require cooling system service before the recommended 100,000 miles.
Our technicians recommend flushing the brake fluid every 60,000 miles. Brake fluid that is dirty may cause problems in the brake system.

2002 GMC Savana 1500 Reviews
My 2002 GMC SAVANA 1500 HAS BEEN LEAKING WATER COOLIANT FOR THE PASS YEAR. IT WAS LEAKING A LITTLE BIT THAT I HAD TO ADD SOME EVERY FOUR MONTHS, MAYBE A PINT. SIX MONTHS LATER A LITTLE MORE AND MORE OFTEN. NOW I HAVE TO ADD EVERY WEEK AT LEAST A QUART EVERY FIVE DAYS. I CRAWLED UNDER THE VAN AND CAN NOT SEE WHERE IT'S LEAKING. I CAN GO AND CHECK WHERE I PARK THE VAN AND NO WATER SPOTS. I WAS TOLD THAT IT COULD BE MY HEADS. BUT MY VAN IS NOT MISSING. THE PLUGS ARE NOT GETTING WET AND THERE'S NO WATER IN MY MOTOR OIL. I CHECK THE EXAUST AND IT DOES NOT SMOKE WHITE SMOKE ONLY IN THE FIRST MORNING THE FIRST TIME I START IT UP AND THEN IT GOES AWAY. YOU CAN SMELL WATER THAT IS SPILLING ON SOME THING HOT. I'VE CHANGE THE WATER PUMP, TOP RADIATOR HOSE, AND A HOSE CLAMP THAT LOOK LIKE IT WAS NO GOOD. HEATER CORE NOT LEAKING OR FLOOR BOARD WOULD BE WET. PLEASE HELP.
