1999 Chevrolet Suburban Owner Comments

problem #3

Jan 192004

Suburban 4WD

  • Automatic transmission
  • 60,000 miles


We bought the used vehicle Jan.04 from dealer, day we picked it up battery dead next morning, not known at time was because dome lights were flicking on off in the middle of the night. First electrical problem was when driving at night as soon as turn on headlights, all interior lights would blow, no dash lights, no tail lights etc. We paid over 200 to have that fixed(shortage in park light behind grill replaced) still having numerous problems with interior dome light flickering on and off whenever to the point we have to take out the fuse when parked so they don't come on and drain battery. Dealers service dept. Can't find problem, taken in numerous times and pay for labor to find nothing.. ABS brakes are kicking in when you try to stop at the stop sign, numerous times I have almost rear ended someone due to not being able to stop. I can not believe with so many people having problems with electrical and ABS brakes, that Chevy does not do a recall.. I am very disappointed with Chevrolet and will never buy another Chevy again if this is there quality.

It appears on that on the 1999 model year Chevy Suburban there is a defect that causes a short in the interior light system, resulting in the interior lights remaining on even when the switch is off. I have a few friends who have had this problem, and found a posting on the internet where several others have had the same problem - link included

We purchased the vechicle used from the dealer listed. Vehicle has been in for brake problems when wheels are wet they shutter and lock up. The battery cracked and leaked all over the battery tray and brake lines and other frame componets. The rear door dome light switch shorted out. The front end has been aligned several times for the wheels pulling to the left. The A/C air barly comes out of the front dash vents. The rear end is positive traction and when making a turn it makes a popiing noise.
