GMC Canyon Problems

The HVAC blower motor may stop working at one or more speeds due to a faulty blower motor resistor block. Our technicians recommend to confirm the resistor is at fault by first checking the operation of the switch.

The engine may develop a misfire due to worn valve seats. This fault will cause the Check Engine Light to illuminate. Replacement of the cylinder head may be required to correct this concern.

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

GMC Canyon Recalls

The front hood is secured by two latches, the primary and secondary latch. The secondary latch prevents the hood from opening when the primary latch has been activated. These vehicles are being recalled because some may have been assembled without a secondary hood latch. With this latch missing, if the primary latch is not properly engaged the hood could open unexpectedly while driving. This could obstruct the view of the driver, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the hood on the affected vehicles to correct this concern. 

Certain vehicles may have been produced with a driver's side seat belt buckle electrical connector that does not fit snugly with the connector terminals, causing the electrical connection to be intermittent. This loose electrical connection may cause the driver not to receive a visual or audible warning that the driver's seat belt is not fastened. If the seat belt is not properly fastened in the event of a crash, there is an increased risk of personal injury. Dealers will replace the seat belt buckle electrical connector terminals to correct this concern. The General Motors recall number is 11322.

Certain vehicles may have been assembled with an automatic transmission shift cable adjustment clip that may not retain the cable in the correct position. If the cable is not properly retained, the shift indicator may not show the correct transmission gear. The driver could move the shifter to "Park" and remove the ignition key, but the transmission gear may not be in "Park." The driver may not be able to restart the vehicle and the vehicle could roll unexpectedly, increasing the risk of a crash or personal injury. Dealers will install a new automatic transmission adjustment clip to correct this concern. This recall is expected to begin on July 19, 2011. The General Motors recall number is 11181.

Dash light sometimes fail to come on at night. Radio light blinks. A/C switch only worked on high.

My problems are rough idle, that I don't know how to fix and the brackets in both windows broke so now I can't roll my windows down at all and then the mirrors quit moving. What to do?

this has been a very good truck I haven't had any problems at all with it
