2002 GMC Sierra Denali Problems

The daytime running lights are prone to burning out. Our technicians tell us that the light sockets may show signs of heat damage but usually are OK. Always be sure to use the correct replacement bulb for the best life expectancy. The new bulb recommendation for 2000-2003 models is #4114K (trade number).

Illumination of the Check Engine Light can be caused by a loose or worn gas cap.

A poor electrical ground under the battery tray may cause the ABS warning light to illuminate. Our technicians tell us that cleaning and properly securing this ground and also the main ABS ground on the frame rail below the drivers door may be necessary.

2002 GMC Sierra Denali Questions

Has Gas, When attempting to restart the engine stumbles for a second or two then dies again. Acts like no fuel but there is fuel. Never has done this before.

Wouldnt climb past 2000 rpm. I gave it some gas but still wouldnt past the 2000 mark. The truck hasonly 123000 miles on it. Is it my tranny thats going out or a bad sensor? Or is it that it has 305/40/22 wheels?

my rear wheel steer service light stays on and when it turns on my truck won't engage rear wheel steering. What do I check?
