Improper HVAC Temperature and/or Air Delivery Due to Failed Mode Door Actuator

One or more heater & AC (HVAC) temperature and/or air delivery mode door actuator may fail, resulting in improper temperature or air delivery. If this occurs, fault code(s) should be stored in the HVAC control module which should assist in diagnoses.

Rear Window Defogger Wire Terminal Broken Off of Window Glass

The rear window defogger may stop working due to a wire terminal broken off of the rear glass. Our technicians tell us that terminal can be reattached using a special glue or silver solder.

2005 GMC Yukon XL Denali 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.

Seems to burn front lights frequently, but can change in minutes. Have changed oil prior to onboard computer recommendation and recently changed transmission fluid as well. No oil pressure or relat...
