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.

2005 GMC Yukon Owner Comments

problem #4

Mar 012009

Yukon 8-cyl

  • 65,000 miles


The fuel gauge is defective. It is usually saying empty when there is plenty of gas in the tank. This has been an ongoing problem for a long time. When I put gas in the gauge will display the proper amount. Within minutes it will say empty and the low fuel indicator light comes on.

Fuel gauge not working, jumps all over the place... shows half tank and then rises to full while driving or the other way around. Called GMC and they are aware of this problem, said fuel pump needs replacing and is happening on many vehicles but its not a recall.

The contact owns a 2005 GMC Yukon. The contact stated that the fuel gauge was providing inaccurate fuel level readings. The dealer dignosed that the float assembly would need to be replaced. The manufacturer was not notified of the failure and the vehicle was not repaired. The failure mileage was 38,000 and the current mileage was 90,000. Updated 09/21/11

problem #1

  • 90,000 miles
2005 faulty GMC Yukon dash system. Dealer originally told me it was the fuel pump but suggested it might be alcohol in the gasoline. I tried using ethanol free gas and it worked. I couldn't find any ethanol free gas on Dec 25th so I had to use 10% ethanol and my entire dash has quit working. I can't tell how fast I'm going, if I have fuel or how many miles I have on my vehicle. The GMC dealership wants me to replace my fuel pump, dash board and they estimate it will cost around $1500. It worked fine without ethanol!
