2006 GMC Envoy Owner Comments

problem #5

Envoy 4WD 6-cyl

  • 192,000 miles


As I was driving down I-75 at 10:30pm my headlights just randomly went off! I was driving approximately 70 mph and I was in an area that had no lights alongside the road. I slammed on my brakes to attempt to move to the side of the road. After I slowed enough to move over, my headlights went back on. I was so shook up, I'm not sure if my rear lights went off as well. This type of incident happened again this past weekend and I had to pull to the side of the road and actually shut off the engine and re-start my car twice before my lights went back on.today, on my way to work, in the dark, just before I was pulling into our parking lot, they went off again. I also have noticed that when I press on the automatic window buttons, my lights dim and then brighten. Another issue is the dash light for the gas cap turns on and off randomly while driving the car. In addition, my air bag light has been on for several months, does not go off and yet, it not included in the recall of the dangerous airbags going off randomly and causing accidents and injuries. All of the above issues have occurred while the vehicle was in motion.I'm not sure if these are related or not. All of the issues are very serious safety issues and need to be addressed.

The contact owns a 2006 GMC Envoy. The contact started the ignition and the fuel gauge displayed an inaccurate reading even though fuel had been dispensed into the fuel tank. While driving, the fuel gauge reading fluctuated which caused difficulty in determining the actual fuel tank level. In addition, the air bag warning indicator illuminated continuously whenever the vehicle was operative. There were also electrical issues which contributed to the radio not to function and the instrument panel cluster lights would not illuminate. The fuel sensor was replaced previously by the dealer and the failure recurred three years later. The vehicle had not been repaired for the most recent fuel gauge malfunction. There were no repairs performed in relation to the other failures. The manufacturer was notified of the problem. The approximate failure mileage was 23,000. Updated 4/2/12 the consumer stated the fuel level sensor failed twice. Also, ai =R bag warning light was fixed by moving the SRS wiring under the driver's sat. The radio and dash lights were replaced as well, due to inferior parts. Updatd 04/16/12
