2007 GMC Yukon Starting Problem

Just recently I have been experiencing starting problems. It dosen't seem to be whether the car is hot or cold. The first couple of times I tried starting it and it wouldn't even crank the clock reset to 12:00. After waiting about 20 minutes it starts right up. A couple of times when I tried to start it, it would just go click, click, click. I found the fuse box and relays under the hood. I started pulling them out and pushing them back in and after each one I tried starting until I finally came to one and it started. The next time it wouldn't start I just tried removing and replacing the one that had worked the last time. Well of course it didn't start. I then just started lifting the relays up and putting them back down and it started. It is very frustrating because I am pretty sure it has something to do with a relay not going to it's normal state after the key is turned off. It has always started first thing in the morning and usually after it has sat for awhile. By the way the car has usually been sitting for at least and hour before I have tried to start it and it wouldn't. It doesn't seem to excessively charge after any of these non starting episodes and I had the batter and alternator checked and they are both good. Any suggestion other than taking it to the dealer would be appreciated.

Thank you,

Ron Sliter

    I too have an 07 yukon and i have come to notice that that voltage on the dash would drop below 14 and i took it to have both alternator and battery checked 2 times already with the end results being it was good. a few months after i purchased it i installed a new cd player and a week ago i turned my vehicle on, put it in drive and it shut off. put it back into park, tried to start and nothing happened. after towing it to a dealer they reset the computer and said new stereo harness can cause comm errors with the comp and it will cause the system to shutdown.????

SOURCE: shuts off while driving. no fuel pressure. pcm fuse blows/ fuel pump relay inserted.

Sounds like the fuel pump is shorted.

Hi...
I read your problem.
Is there a few step to diagnostic or try to fix your car.

Follow this simple steps.
Inspect the RALAY " Starter relay # 47. or interchange with other one just for testing.
1- Check the Fuse " IGN E Fuse number 22 " 10amp. on under hood fuse BOX fron Neutro swicth
And power to the power to the Neutro safetly switch.
2-- Check the Fuse " CRANK fuse # 17 10amp. Under hood fuse box. 12v. from Ignition switch
3- check the fuse " IGN A fuse # 34 40 amp. under hodd fuse box. Constant 12v. to relay.
With ignition switch in ON position.
Crank Fuse only when you try to start. If no power 12v. come when trying to start.
REmove the steering column covers. to get axces to the IGNITION SWITCH.
Trying to start check if 12 v on the YELLOW wire exist. if not. Check if there a 12v on the RED wire
If not Inspect FUSE # 34.
But if there a power on the red wire But not ON yellow wire Trying to start.
Just REPLACE THE IGNITION SWITCH. Electrical part.

Check the NEUTRO SAFETLY SWITCH. connector under the car. Repair as need.
CHeck the BACK-UP lights, some times come damaged making a short on the Neutro safetly switch. ...

OK.. I hope this help on your problem.
If you need more information letme know.

I'm a Mechanic and have all the information for repair vehicles.

Thank you for use fixya....

SOURCE: 2002 GMC Envoy, i put the key in ignition and

Ignition switch and neutral safety switch. Next time it happens wiggle thekeys in the ignition switch and try to restart.If it starts its probably the ignition switch. Then locate neutral safety switch on brake pedal and put meter on B+ wire from switch to starter relay and see if you get B+ on the would -be- crank. Next locate B+ wire from starter relay to starter hook a meter to it and see if you get B+ on the would -be crank.
Where ever B+ is missing is your problem.

SOURCE: Hi all. I have a '99 GMC Suburban that is having

Hi! Looks pretty much a PCM (powertrain control module) failure. The PCM is like a car's brain that when it fails everything else's fail. As a first course of action I strongly suggest that you have the PCM resetted on the dealership but if ever that the PCM is faulty this will require replacement. Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa!

2002 GMC Yukon XL 5.3 Cold start


What happens if you bring power directly to the starter solenoid? Will it crank then? You need to try to isolate the problem. If it will crank with direct power, the starter is NOT the issue. Let us know what you find.

If this happens when you are idle, and then you get hot air as you drive, most likely you have low coolant and it only cycles as you drive. Get approved dextrom gmc coolat and cap off your coolant it is most likely low.

There was not a recall, but there was a class action settlement where GM agreed to extend the warranty on certain vehicles for this problem. Check www.gmspeedometerrecall.com to see if you qualify.

2003 yukon cold start problem


alternator needs tested (scoped ) for any dirty power (spikes)...that simple test will eliminate soo many electrical gremlins i cant stress it enough.....causing bad floating grounds and computer misreads of sensitive sensors without tripping codes ... replace alternator if suspicious and watch your other seemingly unrelated issues disappear :)......i know i know i am using a crystal ball here tonight and going out on a limb about this one .... but humor me and test alternator before investing too much other time and money :) good luck
