2005 GMC Yukon XL Denali Problems

Heating & Air Conditioning -- Verified

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.

Electrical & Lights -- Verified

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.

Electrical & Lights -- Verified

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 2001-2003 models is #4114K (trade number).

Suspension & Steering -- Verified

The steering wheel position sensor may fail, resulting in the service stability message being displayed.

Engine -- Verified

A dirty throttle body may cause a lower than normal idle and possible stalling condition. Performing a throttle body service will commonly correct this concern.

2005 GMC Yukon XL Denali Recalls (Recent)

Brakes, March 23, 2005

RepairPal Expert Overview:

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.

2005 GMC Yukon XL Denali Reviews

Bought new in 2005. Unbelievable brakes. 151,000 miles on original rotors and pads. Changing them out only because I'm pulling a large trailer to Florida. Rotors true and no brake dust - ever. 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 related issues. 60,000 miles on stock tires, 80,000 on Goodyear Fortera Tripletread. Great tire and on my second set. Biggest complaint is that all backlit lights on steering wheel are out as are those on part of the radio and various places throughout interior. Paint holding up great - still looks very nice. Anodized aluminum luggage racks have started to wear and much of the black is gone. Not very noticeable unless you're above the vehicle looking down. All in all a great vehicle that I plan to drive for quite a while.
