Question about 2007 GMC Acadia SLE

GPS disabled while driving

I find it very inconvenient that my wife can not program the GPS while I am driving.  I know GMC put this is as a safety feature to keep drivers from being distracted while driving- but it is a pain in the **** to have to pull over and stop, even though my wife is in the passenger seat trying to program it.
There has to be a way to disable this feature and allow full access to all the GPS features while driving or not.
Please help!!
Thanks Randy

Car will not turn over it has a new battery ,starter and selinoid and alternator. ItS a 1992 Cadillac Devvile kop

Power goes from ignition switch to neutral safety switch then to starter. Neutral safety switch used to be on steering column. Find wire harness for switch. Verify power is coming to harness when key is in start position. If not then bad ign switch or blown fuse. If power is coming to neutral safety switch but not going to starter then either bad switch or out of adjustment. Try putting car in neutral and starting then back to park. Or you have funky aftermarket alarm that is disabling starter. Also if car was financed thru small car dealership they may have put gps with starter disable on it. This helps remind you that payment is due. You can run jumper wire to starter solenoid to make starter turn over. That would be the small terminal.

My wifes spare tire came off while driving. 2001 GMC Denali. I need to know what to buy and how to replace this from happening again. Thanks.

You do not reinstall under the truck ,exposed to the weather
You leave the spare at home or put inside vehicle

You would not have been able to use it anyway,
as it would rust in place or rust and fall out in the
street ,as it did

The wheel ,if you had it, would be junk from rusting

I'am afraid a dealer or salvage yard, are your
choices for a replacement

try this turn your key to the on possition the dash lights will start to flash leave them flashing untill the stop flashing takes about 10 minutes. this is an ignition learning sequence and is a know failure for 98 thru 04 chevy and gmc trucks and suv's then see if it will start.
if you car has a security system factory or aftermarket disable it. i just went throiugh this problem with my wifes blazer. it turned over fine but didnt even try to start. the ignition sequence should allow you to start it. post your out come and we can go from there

I ran my key fob thru the washing machine and my wife threw it away. I found one in the junk yard which looks the same but I've been unable to program it. I also disabled the factory alarm system to stop...

Let your other half know that if it happens again, cracking the case, removing the battery and placing it open in a warm place should restore it. If not, buy a jug of distilled water (zero minerals), bathe the fob in it and repeat the drying process.

We own a 2000 GMC Jimmy, and it won't start. It got repoed in January or Feb and we got it back with a GPS locater on it. Ever since the car lot put the locater on it, it kind of run weird after that. Now...

If the vehicle doesnt turn over make sure the battery is fully charged.If charged and still doesnt turn,(if the vehicle has a security system) check and make sure the starter kill feature is disabled (check vallet switch).If it cranks and doesnt start to check the fuel pump you can have someone turn the key to the on position while you put your ear close to the fuel tank to see if you can hear the pump (you should hear a buzzing sound for 5seconds after the key is turned to the on position).This is a tuff call. You need to find out what the lot did when they put the GPS on the vehicle

We own a 2000 GMC Jimmy, and it won't start. It

it sounds like they may have installed the passtime on it incorrectly. I would contact the dealer that installed the passtime system on there. Also they may have inadvertantly disabled it, you may need to contact them for a new code (if it is the passtime that rquires a code). The noise you hear through the speakers is more than likley due to them not grounding something properly.

Air bag disabling

Hi Lorraine,

I think it would be far safer for your daughter, to have a seat, even a fold up, that could lock into it's position, when in use, fitted into the rear behind the front seats....I'd also suggest that it is fitted with full harness safety belt....

I don't have a diagram and even if I had one, I would not give it to you.... I cannot understand why anyone would give a letter of authority, to disengage such an important safety device....It is something which may save her life.....

Do you never see the possibility, of carrying anyone else in the vehicle?

I'm sorry if I seem harsh.....I am with the traffic department where I live, and I have attended yesterday....

I don't know the reasons why you have applied for that exemption....All that I can say to you, is leave the air bags working and make sure you drive so that you'll never need the safety that the air bag provides....

I'm sorry if my reaction has upset you, but I wish your daughter and you, all the very best....

Regards Johngee10
