Incident Date: 11/25/2011 at 5:20pm Location: Conroe TX; Vehicle: 2005 GMC Yukon XL SLT with approximately 120k miles
Vehicle was parked in driveway; had just been driven however the engine was off; 15-30 minutes later heard loud bang and glass breaking; front cabin of the vehicle was engulfed in flames; opened doors and sprayed water on until fire department got there. If no one would have been outside to hear the glass break this would have been a very different story since the vehicle was parked in a very heavily wooded area with homes. Insurance company has requested that the vehicle remain at place of incident until adjuster can investigate. Fire Department best assumption at this point is that this was an electrical fire that started somewhere in the dash between the console and the steering column.
We are the original owner; bought the vehicle new; no aftermarket options; other than tires and brakes, all original mftr equipment, all warranty work done at GMC dealership. We have extensive documentation with GMC for all warranty issues since it was purchased many of which have been electrical problems. Examples are steering column electronics, passenger A/C blowing hot air due to electrical, Radio / CD Player over heating replaced 2 times, DVD Player replaced numerous times, sporadic incidents where DVD would just stop working requiring the vehicle to be turned completely off then back on for it to come back on; fuel gauge showing empty when the tank was full – car had to be turned off, key out, restart to correct; electronic fuel pump issues - replaced; load leveling electrical component replaced; electronic shifting components on transmission; electronic window switch, etc….
Awaiting disposition and next steps from insurance company
