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.

The gauges in the instrument cluster stop working. First the speedometer then the tachometer, and now the amp meter. On going problem. Definately a safety concern but no one wants to address the issue. The dealer wants $600 dollars to repair ir but does not guarantee it will be the fix. Other vehicals of this year and model have the same issue.

Yukon 4WD 8-cyl

  • 60,000 miles
Days after purchasing the vehicle, the check engine light came on, the vehicle powered down taking the speed from 35mph or above to 5-10 miles mph with out warning. This continuously happened as years passed and GM certified repair shop never found what's wrong. Until about two years ago, I googled issue and found its related to accelerator pedal and wiring from pedal that leads to engine throttle control, I changed throttle control plug to new and replaced accelerator pedal with used part and worked fine for two years but has now started failing again. I am afraid of this issue because I could be on freeway going 65 mph and if these fail as they have and are, I then slow down to 5-10 mph in a matter of seconds and could cause a serious accident. Please help, there should be a recall for this.

I was going to work and notice my speedometer was not moving...and the rmp reading was not moving. I check with my machanic and the price was over $600. To fix and all the cables have to be replaced because they are all put together. GMC know there's a problem with the speedometer cables. We have a 94 GMC and no problem with the speedometer.

Fuel gauge reading inaccurately. Needle went way past the full mark into the blank area on the bottom of the gauge. Also, the speedometer was reading 120mph when I was pulling out of my driveway. I stuck at 70mph when I was stopped.

Traction active appears on display - while stopped at a very dangerous intersection, I pressed the accelerator only to have the traction active light appear on the display and the vehicle would not move. I had to let off the gas and then press it again in order for the vehicle to move. This is a major safety concern as I am unable to accelerate at an appropriate speed in order to avoid an accident while taking off from a stop.

About 4 weeks ago (3000 miles) my speedometer began to periodically malfunction. It would begin to show acceleration in excess of 120 mph even though I would be traveling at speeds less than 45 mph. Once the vehicle was turned off it would seem to work normally. This problem quickly developed into a full-time problem. Now when my vehicle is in part it may register from 70 to 90 mph. I took the vehicle to the GMC dealer for a quote and was told that they had fixed this same problem on a number of Yukon and that I needed a new instrument cluster.

  • Automatic transmission
  • 37,500 miles
: the contact stated the speedometer stopped working without prior warning. The odometer continued to represent correct mileage, but the speedometer would not register the speed. Although the dealer did not inspect the vehicle he suggested the speedometer needed to be replaced. The dealer could not perform the repair because of a lack of parts. The manufacturer was contacted, and they explained the parts were on national backorder.
