#126 of 132 Door Lock Actuator / 3 wire vs 2 wire
Mar 04, 2013 (9:32 am)
2000 GMC Yukon XL 4x4 / 5.3
I am trying to replace my front right door lock actuator. I have bought 2 online with the exact same part number as the one I pulled from the door
the one installed in my vehice has 3 wired connections(plugs) the ones that I keep getting shipped to me are 2 wired connections ( crazy they have the same part number!!!!!)
So any advice where I can get a 3 wired connector door actuator other than the dealer who wants a ludicris amount.
anyone have the 3 wires part number and where I can get it.
anyone know what the diference in the 2 and 3 connector versions is?
any and all info is appreciated,
#128 of 132 Electrical Problems... Lights/Blinker/Cruise
Apr 02, 2013 (2:31 pm)
I've had my 2003 GMC Yukon Denali for almost 4 months. I've noticed that sometimes my lights flicker. It's so quick and subtle you barely notice it so I haven't worried about it too much until last night. I took an 800 mile round trip to Portland Oregon this weekend. On the way back I had the cruise set and was about an hour from home when my blinker and cruise started acting up. As I would change lanes I would turn the blinker on. Immediately as I turn it on the cruise would cancel and the blinker wouldn't turn on. But if I let go of the blinker arm and turn it right back on it would work and I could reset the cruise. It didn't happen every time just several times.
Then today I was driving the car in town,not using cruise, and when I would go to turn I'd turn the blinker on and as I hit the brake the blinker would just stay lit. I'd turn the blinker back off then right back on and it would work fine. Any ideas?? I'm worried its gonna get worse and leave me with no lights
#129 of 132 GMC Yukon XL Denali Power Outage
Apr 03, 2013 (9:50 am)
I have experienced electrical power outage problems on my 2008. Initially I detected a non-start when turning the ignition key. On second attempt, engine started and ran fine. A few starts later, when I turned the key, all lights, gauges, etc. went out and would not start. A repeat turning of the key did nothing...all gauges and instruments remained out. Initially, I thought the battery was low but jump starting did not work from my wife's VW Toureg. Thinking the VW did not have the "juice" to start the big block, I jumped from a friends pickup. It started and ran fine. Next day, same thing. I had the battery tested and it was okay. Took Denali to GM dealer. Mechanic told me there had been problems with battery cables and the relay/fuse box mounted on the firewall behind the battery. He recommended changing the positive cable. This solved the problem...for 3 months. Yesterday, the Yukon would not start and all panel lights were out. I put charge on battery for 6 hours. It took a full charge and panel lights remained out with no noise trying to start. Dealer now tells me the "other", negative cable needs replacing. What is the issue with GM battery cables in Yukon Denali's? Am I going to have an ongoing ?problem
#130 of 132 2008 Yukon XL Denali Brake Problems
Apr 03, 2013 (10:05 am)
I purchased vehicle with 69K miles in September 2011, I had to replace my front pads and rotors in April 2012 at 78,425 miles. In November with 86K miles, I began getting a vibration in the steering wheel on braking. I took the Yukon to my GM Dealer, they said that the rotors were warped from overheating. I have never driven the car hard, although I pull a trailer regularly (maybe 400 of the 8,000 miles since replacement) I do not do hard stops (I'm pulling horses) and I downshift during braking for the very reason I don't want to overheat brakes (I used to race cars, I know about those things) so I am wary of the dealer's response (I'm sure it's what GM tells them to say) I 've been driving cars for 50 years and never had brake rotors fail like this. This dealer has always been square with me and I trust them. The parts manager, offered to sell me drilled and slotted rotors for the price of the standard ones and I agreed. They ordered them in and when I got around to taking the Yukon back in, they found that the rotors were a different size. They checked the parts numbers with Delco and ordered a different set which also were too small/smaller than the standard rotors. I have been told that the rotors are probably made in China (street talk, not from the dealer) and therefore inferior. Could this be so? Is everything including our safety being shopped out to the Chinese? What's going on with GM brake rotors?
#131 of 132 Electrical Issues

Let me start by saying I love my Denali and am currently looking at purchasing a 2013, but after reading all of these reviews I am unsure I want to. here is my story and how I ended up on this forum. I googled electrical issues with 07 Denali just to see if I was the only one out there and am sadly not surprised by the extensive amount of comments on this thread. From day 1 (roughly 09) of my purchase I have noticed issues. Started with the lift gate not working and replaced the mechanism to that, then immediately after that and over the last 3-4 years it has been NON-STOP replacing my battery. It would just be dead the next morning when I went to crank it. dead as in not being able to even jump start a majority of the time or charge. Between myself purchasing my own batteries and the dealership replacing batteries I have been through more than I can remember! It has done this at the dealership, but they never can figure out why. I have left it for a week at a time just to try to get it to mess up or to diagnose the issue. I am currently not experiencing this issue, but I did have others that started at Easter this year. First I got an error message about my tire monitor system, then the key fobs stopped working, then it was seat warmers, then my drivers side seat will no longer adjust, the cruise control randomly shuts off, and when I took it in they did replace the control mechanism (I think it is called something like that). They re-programmed my fobs and as soon as I drove off the lot it all stopped working again and my error message came back! It is currently in the service department where they replaces a fuse and said it was working fine, but would keep it 1 more day to make sure all was ok. I have been screaming electrical issue from day 1 on my battery. I called this noting to check and all was "well" but I did ask them to try to figure out why the fuse blew since I had just paid over $300 for the other part. When I called back this afternoon to check on it they said I was not going to be able to pick it up because the fuse blew out again! My seat are all pulled out and apart and they are trying to find the problem. I'm sure I have forgotten a few things, but to me it is quite obvious there is an issue with the 07 & 08 Yukon Denali and no one seems to have a solution for the problem. It makes me mad because every time I have to take it to the dealer I already know what they will say. That they can't figure out what is wrong! Very frustrating. GM needs to own up to an issue with this and come up with a solution.
