Question about 1993 GMC Yukon

1 Answer

When I first start up my 1993 GMC Yukon and begin to drive - every time there is a sound somewhere near left front side, a sound similar to:

My two door 1993 GMC Yukon always makes a sound similar to an antique car horn or a dog growling. I know those two don't sound the same but it's the best way to explain this sound. It only happens when I begin to drive the truck after each start up. It doesn't happen once the speed builds up. Some suggestions have been the ABS brakes. I don't know if that's true and would love to fix this loud and annoying sound. Is it safe to drive while I am trying to find out what it is? Thanks so much.

Sounds to me you might either have a bad wheel bearing or a bad cv joint.

SOURCE: 03 Yukon denali park brake warning wont turn off

hi for info the brakes warning light on dash is also an indication that brake fluid level is low? or there may be a leak resulting in fluid level drop ? also considering age of car you may need to inspect brake pads wear ? if your car has low brake pads wear indicators attached to pads ? or the hand brake switch req's checking to ensure it is being pushed to off position when h/brak is down ? so fluid level low is the obviouse 1st check as fluid will displace from reservoir as pads wear low hence the level indicator on fill cap trips on may i suggest if it is low level b4 you top up? check your b/pads if you have not done so recently? or replaced since new ? hope this helps you locate problem best wishes from the uk

SOURCE: GMC Yukon - ABS light and parking brake light come on while drivi

try to pull up on your parking brake pedal with your hand when light comes on. if this makes it go out u will need to adjust the parking brake switch under the pedal. or replace pedal spring that holds it up.

SOURCE: gmc yukon has the abs & parking brake light

you have to fix the problem with ur brakes- first check the wiring ,connectors and connection clips to the abs sensors and modulator if looks ok than have truck scanned some auto stores such as auto zone / advanced auto do it for free the code will give u a start point towards fixing ur problem--visual inspection of brakes doesnt always show problem

SOURCE: ABS bleeding technique on GMC Yukon

If you forced the pads back into the calipers without loosening the bleeders you probably forced gunk into the abs modulator valves. Sometimes doing the automated bleed proceedure (need Tech or Bi Directional Scanner) will bring things back to life.

Where is the sensor for the airbag on a yukon 2005 located at on the truck


Front Airbag sensors are located on the radiator support beam behind the bumper. In this video, you can see them. You don't need to remove the bumper - they just have it off to let you see where they are. Should be able to see them if you climb under the truck.

When cold I have to constantly correct the steering. If I move it left it keeps going left even after brought back to center (same for going right). It is not as bad after driving for a while but still...


It sounds like you need a new power steering pump, and possibly a new rack. I would also have the alignment checked at the shop. Good luck!

Left blinker problems


That's an issue with wiring somewhere alont the line. There has to be a short somewhere. Hopefully for you the short is from the new taillight assembly being installed and it would be relatively easy to get to. Hope it helps!
