GMC Savana 1500 Repair and Maintenance

A guide to problems, costs, maintenance and repair for your GMC Savana 1500

The tail light wiring harness in the cargo area is not protected very well. As a result it may become damaged due to normal wear a tear. This damage can causing some or all of the rear lights to stop working.

Various electrical components under the front carpet/rubber mat may become damaged if excess water is used to clean the rear cargo area.

It is common for the fuel level sensor in the fuel tank read the fuel level incorrectly. The sensor must be replaced to correct the condition. Our technicians recommend having the complete fuel pump module replaced on high mileage vehicles.

Certain vehicles equipped to run on compressed natural gas are being recalled because the high pressure natural gas regulator could develop a leak, increasing the risk of a fire or explosion. Dealers will replace the natural gas regulator to correct this concern.

Certain vehicles are being recalled because if a crash were to occur not requiring deployment of the front airbags, the head of an unbelted front seat passenger could hit the instrument panel, resulting in personal injury because the panel may not sufficiently absorb the impact.

Chevrolet Express and GMC Savana vans are used by the Explorer Van Company as the base vehicle for some of their van conversions. Certain Explorer vans are being recalled because the wiring under the power seats may not have been properly secured during vehicle conversion. The wires can be damaged by the seat mechanism resulting in an electrical short and possibly a fire. Dealers will inspect and replace any seat wire harness found to be damaged. If the harness is not damaged, it will be secured to prevent future damage.
