There is a load sensor that tells the computer to turn the pump on and level the car, this is not adjustable on most systems, but the sensor itself may be giving an incorrect signal and hence the low in the rear condition, or high in the front, so the dealer is correct in his answer, but the low ride height condition indicates a problem in the system, and that can be fixed.

DUE TO PART AVAILABILITY, THIS SPECIAL COVERAGE IS BEING ADMINISTERED IN PHASES. YOU WILL BE NOTIFIED AS EACH ADDITIONAL PHASE IS RELEASED.

CUSTOMERS ARE BEING INSTRUCTED TO CONTACT THE DEALERSHIP TO ARRANGE AN APPOINTMENT IF THEY BELIEVE THEIR VEHICLE HAS THIS CONDITION. THE CUSTOMER IS BEING ASKED TO PROVIDE THE VIN SO THE IPC CAN BE ORDERED IN ADVANCE OF THE SCHEDULED APPOINTMENT. THIS WILL ELIMINATE THE NEED TO KEEP THE VEHICLE OVERNIGHT.

This may cause inaccurate readings, including the speedometer and fuel gauge.

Special Coverage Adjustment
This special coverage covers the condition described above for a period of 7 years or 70,000 miles (110,000 km), whichever occurs first, from the date the vehicle was originally placed in service, regardless of ownership.

Replace spedometer cable 2003 gmc yukon xl


There is no speedometer cable on the 2003 Yukon, if there is no transmission issues like shifting problem. Your instrument cluster has gone bad, to pinpoint. Your stepper motor to your speedometer gauge has failed and needs to be replaced. You can do a search on Ebay for the stepper motor for around $10.00 which is better then the $400.00 cost of another instrument cluster.
There was a TSB on the replacement of the instrument cluster for your Yukon free of charge. The only cost to you is the labor charge unless your willing to do the job your self. Just go to the Gm Dealer and give them this TSB Number: # 07187C: Special Coverage Adjustment - Instrument Panel Cluster Gauge Needle Function - (Mar 20, 2009)

There was a campaign to faulty instrument panel on your year of Yukon and you should check with your local GM dealer for a free instrument panel replacement. A special policy came out for 03-04 trucks and suvs with less then 70,000 miles, and less then 7 years old.

It has got a humming at back tire . It doesnot make this sound until i drive it awhile,when i get back in driveway i can listen at back tire and hear the hum. it is at the rear of truck,the sound.I don!t...


this could be brakes or a wheel bearing, raise the vehicle and spin the tire to see if you may isolate the noise. Bearings are not hard at all to repack or replace, they must be well packed with fresh grease, new or old.

2000 escalade ext ...only rear air conditioning ..nothing from front panel...only ambient air from front ...why?


Sounds like you have a door mode actuator failed. This is fairly common. Sometimes the door actually breaks. You may have to remove the whole HVAC box to fix it if the door broke
