GMC Yukon XL 1500 Problems

Drive Train -- Verified

The 4WD transfer case encoder motor position sensor or the selector switch may fail causing the service 4WD message to be displayed. Fault code(s) stored in the transfer case control module will be of assistance in determining the exact fault causing the message to be displayed.

Electrical & Lights -- Verified

The speedometer or other instrument panel gauge may begin to work erratically at times. Our technicians tell us that the instrument cluster must be sent to a repair facility to correct this fault. The warranty has been extended on some of these units to 7 years or 70,000 miles.

Electrical & Lights -- Verified

The daytime running lights are prone to burning out. Our technicians tell us that the light sockets may show signs of heat damage but usually are OK. Always be sure to use the correct replacement bulb for the best life expectancy. The new bulb recommendation for 2000-2003 models is #4114K (trade number).

Suspension & Steering -- Verified

The steering may develop a clunk type noise from the upper intermediate steering shaft.  Our technicians tell us that you should check with you local GM dealer to find out what the latest repair is for this condition.

Miscellaneous -- Verified

The sunroof may stop working for various different reasons. Our technicians tell us it is often better to replace the complete sunroof assembly than to try and repair the old one.

on a cold start the oil gauge will go to 80 then drop to zero will stay on zero until 10 minutes or more of driving, then when I come to a stop it will jump to 80 and stay on 80. Please advise of possible problem and estimate repair cost. Thank you.

I have replaced my alternator, water pump and fuel pump and have had numerous issues with brakes and misalignment and the interior lights have gone out on the radio and door switches for the window. Maintence has been a expensive proposition I would buy something more reliable next time, but I love the size and power, but you pay a huge cost.

Under warranty fixed a gas tank sender unit, steering column rattle twice, wheel hub assembly, back rotars. Post warranty fixed the other wheel hub assembly, some electical problems, alternator, both front and back radio and today the rear window motor died. My 2003 is now 10 years old with 117K miles and I've gone about 16 months with no repairs. The initial quality was very diiapointing, I had some bad luck around 70K but from 70-117 has been decent. No better than acceptable to barely acceptable in terms of quality but I"m committed to running this car into the ground as it's worth nothing.

Paint wearing off front dash board and on radio knobs. Speedometer and other gauges go bad after time.

I love my truck. I have only had the odo fixed which was a recall. It is very reliable.
