Question about 2005 GMC Yukon Xl Denali

1 Answer

Auto ride on 2000 Yukon XL needs replacing.

I can purchase new shock units and a new pump. Where is the pump located. My unit has 170,000 miles and the shocks are making noises when I go through a dip. The rubber is dried and I do not hear the pump running so i assume it is shot because the shocks are worn out.

    I had the pump replaced on my 2001 yukon xl in April of 2008 and it has gone bad again. the warranty is 12 months or 12000 miles. I am over on miles!!!! It lasted 155,000 miles before. How do you know if the shocks are bad? Where can you buy the pump?

Hey,

The air pump in located in the very back-left (driver's) side, underneath.
You know the shocks can "look" quit bad and still be okay.
Everything about this system is expensive (to me).
There is also a height sensor that can go bad and keep the air-pump from running.

I recommand an expert on this system.

Your GM Dealer is your best bet for parts.
Just my opinion.

Good Luck

Let us know,
Dave

Where is the air compressor for the ride control on 06 gmc denail


Ride control compressors burn up because of leaking air line or shocks. Replacing compressor won't last long if you have a leak. Most of these units are mounted under floor near rear axle.

The question was on a flex fuel, but the instructions are for standard fuel. Flex may be slightly different. Fuel pump / sending unit / strainer comes assembled for quick change at around $120.

What is the ride control warning for on a 2005 yukon xl denali


It is the air shocks suspension on the rear.
When weight is added to the rear of the vehicle the ride control pump pumps up the shocks.

2005 denali service ride control / air suspension pump


the leak almost 100% of the time is in the air bags of the shocks, there are special tools for isolating the individual shocks and seeing if they leak, but as far as the home repair goes u just replace them or have the dealer test them.

Service ride control


It's time to replace the rear shocks. There expensive like $250.00 and up each and if your not going to be towing, most people replace them with a good set of shocks and not the factor OEM air shock which you have for the auto ride height system. If your going to just buy and good set of normal gas shocks. Pull the fuse to     the auto ride system so the light on the dash is off.
Good luck and hope this helps. The auto ride system was there for towing heavy trailers to keep the ride hight. The rear suspension is actually soft so you have a soft ride and the shock keeps it from bouncing. If your not towing heavy or carring heavy loads, you should be fine with a conventional gas shocks and you may find it better. I found the Monroe Reflex shocks to be more stable then the OEM around corners and highway driving.

The fuse is called RTD 30 amp under the hoodfuse box. That is for the Air Compressor.

Parts.com has the best price for:

Rear Suspension:

and under
electrical:

2000 yukon xl. 4x4 wont engage


My 2000 Yukon XL with 5300 engine had same problem at 115,800 miles in Aug 2006(I bought the vehicle new January 2000)...My GMC dealer did diagnostic and replaced a faulty 4WD Transfer Case Shift Control. (reading from the service invoice) It was GM part number 15709327. Cost for the repair was $41.48 + labor $74.13, total was $115.71...it now has 165,000 on it and so far no problem and the 4WD works when I need it.

2004 yukon xl denali self-leveling rear air shocks


There's a lever that connects the driver-side rear shock to the Automatic Level Control module (the air compressor and the ride-height sensor). Disconnect the lever from the shock and rotate it up and hold it. The compressor should kick in when you hold in place after a few seconds. If it doesn't kick in, make sure your fuses and relays are good. Otherwise, you may have a failed ALC module/burned out air compressor (from the shocks being shot). After you replace the shocks (and after you recouped from the heart attack you had when you shelled out $500+ for each shock), replace the ALC module/compressor (it's all one unit), and test it - it should kick on when you rotate the lever up again.

Figure about $350 for the ALC module from your dealer, and make sure the part numbers match! Your truck came with an upgraded ALC module from the 2001-2004 module, which were prone to water damage.

Good luck!
