Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2003 GMC Envoy Owner Comments

problem #2

Sep 262013

Envoy XL, SLE V6, 4wd

  • Automatic transmission
  • 101,569 miles


Last year I had an issue of my passenger-side low-beam headlight going out intermittently and carried it several times to the repair shop but told there was nothing wrong with it. Had the bulb changed another time when it finally was out during inspection for issue. Probably with bulb continued to occur until I finally had a family friend who is a mechanic replace the burned out wire connector.

Then I had to spend $1,600 to repair or replace the following at time of inspection: driver's seat, brakes, front/rear windshield washer reservoirs and a few smaller issues.

Had no more issues for 4 months and now coming home last night at 9 PM I realized that both my headlights (low beam) are not on and finally realize why everyone was blowing their horns at me! I tried to use the direct switch to headlights off of the normal "Automatic Daylight Running Lamps" setting but no change. I had parking lights, high-beam lights, turn signals, fog lights and brake lights but could not get the low-beams to come on. Checked the lamps this morning and they look fine.

WHAT COULD BE WRONG NOW? I have bragged on my "little" Envoy XL since I purchased it in 2007 but it seems that it is now going to let me down! Please tell me that this is a simple fuse or relay issue and CHEAP!!!
