2005 GMC Yukon XL 1500 Problems

Speedometer or Other Instrument Panel Gauge May Work Erratically

The speedometer or other instrument panel gauge may begin to work erratically at times. Our technicians tell us that the instrument cluster must be sent to a repair facility to correct this fault. The warranty has been extended on some of these units to 7 years or 70,000 miles.

Sunroof May Fail

The sunroof may stop working for various different reasons. Our technicians tell us it is often better to replace the complete sunroof assembly than to try and repair the old one.

4WD Transfer Case Position Sensor/Selector Switch May Fail

The 4WD transfer case encoder motor position sensor or the selector switch may fail causing the service 4WD message to be displayed. Fault code(s) stored in the transfer case control module will be of assistance in determining the exact fault causing the message to be displayed.

2005 GMC Yukon XL 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.

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.

Potential Loss of Braking Ability

707 vehicles may have a missing brake pedal push rod retainer. If the retainer is missing, the brake pedal could disengage from the booster push rod. This could result in loss of braking ability, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will inspect the affected vehicles and install a push rod retainer if necessary. General Motors will begin contacting owners by telephone on March 10, 2005. The General Motors recall number is 05039.

on a cold start the oil gauge will go to 80 then drop to zero will stay on zero until 10 minutes or more of driving, then when I come to a stop it will jump to 80 and stay on 80. Please advise of possible problem and estimate repair cost. Thank you.
