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.

2001 GMC Yukon Owner Comments

problem #5

Aug 192004

Yukon 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 28,482 miles


Original equipment acdelco battery positive terminal corroded and fell off with no prior warning. No visible signs. Failure can occur at any time, with vehicle either running or parked, and at any location. Repair is a battery replacement and repair of acid-damaged parts located under the battery. I've since learned that this failure is common knowledge of GM repair centers and other GM SUV vehicle owners.

Battery acid was leaking out of the truck and onto the driveway. The third battery was installed because of this problem.

Vehicle having multiple problems with seatbelts. The front seat belt would not pull out or return to position, two weeks later, the same problem occurred in the passenger seat belt. The rear seat belt experienced the same problem. The battery leaked acid from the positive battery post and the material on the drivers seat was wearing out.

problem #2

Headlights just go off on low beam will work only on high beam. Sometimes they work and then at other times they go off. Took to local dealership in brandon Mississippi, could not reproduce, however got stranded wouldn't crank at 23900 miles, boosted, took to dealership, gauges were clicking and jumping battery was replaced under warranty but I am afraid this is not the end of this problem. We have had three GMC's with previous battery problems while under warranty.

problem #1

For at least three months the dim headlights would go out and only the high beam lights would work we took the truck in they could not duplicate. Then the truck stalled at 23500 miles and it was taken in and a new battery was put in under warranty. This is the third GMC vehicle we have had with battery problems. We also have a 1999 Suburban that has had three batteries installed. We do not know at this point if the new battery will correct the headlight problem but will certainly return to dealer if not. I would like to know if there are other owners experience the same electrical/shortage problems?
