GMC Savana 1500 Problems

One or More Rear Lights May Not Work

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.

Electrical components under front carpet may be damaged when cleaning van interior

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

Check Engine Light and Misfire Due to One or More Stuck Closed Fuel Injectors

One or more fuel injectors may become stuck closed causing an engine misfire  and the Check Engine Light to illuminate. Our technicians tell us that this problem can be caused by some fuel additives. There are special procedures which may be able to restore the affected injector. If this fails the affected injector must be replaced.

GMC Savana 1500 Recalls

Engine Stalls From Electrical Module Short

The chassis electrical module can short due to internal contamination. This can result in the vehicle stalling. Dealers will replace the chassis electronic module free of charge to resolve the concern.

Natural Gas Leak

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.

Insufficient Instrument Panel Padding

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. As of this writing, General Motors is still working on a remedy for this concern.
