2001 GMC Yukon Problems

Inside Door Handles May Break

The inside door handles are prone to breaking.

Instrument Panel Lights Flickering and Exterior Lights Intermittent

The headlight switch used on the GMC Yukon is known to fail through normal operation. Since the headlight switch is also integrated into the interior lights, a malfunctioning switch can cause issues with interior lights as well.

  • Symptoms of a failed headlight switch include:
  • Headlights and taillights failing to turn on or off
  • Interior lights flicker, or fail to turn on or off
  • Gauge cluster lighting off or flickering with headlights on
  • Parking light malfunctions  

This issue is well known with General Motors Trucks and SUVs, and is solved by testing and, if needed, replacing the headlight/dimmer switch. Bad grounding wires at the tail-lights, and dirty/corroded tow package wires can also lead to some of these issues. 

Power Door Lock Actuators May Fail

The power door lock actuators may become slow to operate or stop working completely and require replacement.
