i would have a shop scan the OBD2 computer to pull the trouble codes. these codes will lead you down the right path of repair. Without knowing these trouble codes, this issue could be related to many different components. but sounds like it is in the ignition system.

Car Review: 2004 GMC Yukon XL 1500
January 29, 2010, 09:50 AM
This is a quality SUV for out of the city living. We work on many of these, and all of our customers love them. brakes can get quite expensive for repairs but should be expected with this size of vehicle.. Great for towing..(I use to tow my trailer) and comfortable for hauling many passengers. I give this SUV a 4/5 because of the cost of repairs.
