The dome light may stay on due to a faulty door jamb switch which will require replacement.
The spot welds on the hood striker may be misaligned causing the hood not to latch properly. The correction is to install oversize washers under striker mounting bolts to secure the striker.
Erratic fuel gauge readings may be caused by additives in the fuel. Our technicians tell us an improved fuel tank sender unit is available to correct this concern.
The airbag light may illuminate due to damaged wires under the drivers and/or passenger front seat. Damaged wires should be repaired and properly secured to correct this issue.
The engine may be difficult to start in cold weather or at high altitude. Our technicians tell us there is a powertrain control module (PCM) software up grade which may help with these issues.
A condition may develop where the accelerator pedal sticks and is not smooth. This can be caused by carbon build up on the throttle shaft or throttle body cleaner was used which removed the special coating on the throttle shaft. Our technicians tell us that if this is the case the throttle body should be replaced.
An engine vacuum leak from the throttle-body base gasket may result in a rough idle and/or stumble on acceleration. If this occurs, replacement of the failed gasket will be necessary.
Our technicians tell us these vehicles are sensitive to fuel quality. Using fuel of marginal quality can result in illumination of the Check Engine Light with misfire or oxygen sensor fault codes stored.
The anti-lock brake system (ABS) light may illuminate, especially in hot or humid weather, due to binding in the ABS motor pack. Our technicians tell us that replacement of the motor pack will be necessary to correct this concern.
Multiple electrical system failures may be due to defective or damaged insulation at the wiring harness inside the left front fender liner. Any damaged wires should be properly repaired and repositioned to avoid further damage.
An oil leak may develop form the right front axle seal. Our technicians tell us a revised axle seal is available to correct this concern.
Wheel hub noise may can be caused by excess axle shaft hub clearance. Redesigned wheel hubs are available to correct this concern. Our technicians recommend to check the axle nut torque prior to replacing any components.
Our technicians tell us the transfer case binds if driven on dry roads in 4WD mode, this may result in damage to the transfer case.
