Oldsmobile Bravada Repair and Maintenance

A guide to problems, costs, maintenance and repair for your Oldsmobile Bravada

On vehicles equipped with rear air springs, the air compressor may fail causing the rear suspension to sit low.

The fuel pump may fail causing the engine to stall and not restart. Our technicians recommend replacing the fuel filter every 30,000 miles to help prevent undue strain on the fuel pump.

The fuel level sensor in the fuel tank may fail causing erratic fuel gauge operation. Our technicians tell us that on high mileage vehicles you may wish to replace the complete fuel pump module assembly if this condition occurs.

There is fuel getting to the motor so it is not the fuel pump. It acts like trying to start but like its not getting gas. The fuse is also good. Can hear fuel pump kick in and also can check valve at motor. gas is getting in. Someone suggested the fuel filter?

The multifunction switch may have a short circuit, which may cause the stop lamps and rear hazard lamps to fail. Stop lights that fail to operate may cause a crash. Dealers will replace the hazard switch carrier. (Note: This campaign is an expansion of a previous recall; see 01V364)
