SOURCE: battery removal on a 2004 GMC Envoy

The battery is on the right side behind the fuse box. You need a metric set to undo the 3 screws. Theres one that attaches to the body, one to the bar that goes along the top, and theres one on the left side below the vacuum hose and air induction. After you've taken out those three, you should lift the whole thing out(battery and shroud) together. It's hard to take the shroud off before you lift the battery out. After that, you have to pry the shoud off the battery. The two terminals in the back make it hard. Then just go to any auto parts store and they'll give you a new one.

SOURCE: 1994 GMC pickup front brakes are sticking.

By "sticking" I am assuming that you mean that the brakes are staying applied (calipers are not releasing)and burning the brake pads and rotors up.

The most common cause of this is brake hoses.

The hoses that connect your calipers to the steel brake lines have an inner lining and a reinforced outer "shell". sometimes the inner lining tears loose from the outer shell inside the hose. (It cannot be seen by "looking" at the hose.) The inner lining then starts to act similar to a "heart valve" where it allows fluid to be pushed down into the caliper, then collapses inside the hose, blocking the fluid from returning to the master cylinder when the pedal is released. This can happen just because of the age of the hose, but is more commonly caused by someone allowing the caliper to hang by the hose while replacing the brake pads without using anything to support the weight of the caliper.

To diagnose this condition, raise and support the vehicle and remove the wheels. Make sure that the transmission is in "Park" (Automatic Transmission) or "Neutral" (Manual Transmission) and apply the parking brake. Then start the engine and apply the service brake. (Press HARD on the pedal) Shut the engine off, release the service brake and open the bleeder screws on the calipers. If brake fluid squirts out of the bleeder screw under pressure, then the hoses are the cause of the calipers not releasing.

I changed my abs and i still have a vibration when i push the break no lights come on and its only when i am pushing the break

Warped front rotors from over using the brakes, heat from hard braking.........replace the front rotors with new ones and re-try. Might as well do the pads too as you are right there.

Gmc envoy 04 has dragging noise coming from rear when brakes are applied

very likely an indication that your brake pads are completely worn out and you are damaging your brake rotor with every pedal push. Get to a brake mechanic immediately.

Overheating brake pad or rotor

The pads are dragging because they are not retracting enough. You need to pull the whole caliper off and disassemble. Make sure that there are no burrs in the piston cylinder and the piston is not installed crooked.

This sounds like warped rotors. They are relatively easy to replace if you are a do it yourself type, otherwise take it in to a reputable shop and have the rotors checked and either ground into proper specification, or replaced. These days its typically not worth trying to grind the rotors, and most people just replace them with new ones. I'd have new brake pads put in at the same time.

Good Luck,

My brakes started making a loud clanking sound when I stepped on the brakes this going on for the last two weeks. I took my 2004 gmc envoy to Sears auto department. The brakes have been checked and the...

Looking on, the calipers are about $50 each, similar for rotors, and the pads are about $60 for the set. Total parts is about $250. Labor is about 2-3 hours. $1200 sounds steep to me. I would ask for a line item estimate. Thanks for using FixYa.

Just changed brakes on gmc envoy, coming to a stop abs light comes on and brake pedal pulsates a b it

Did you replace the rotors or at least have them machine ground to true? Out of round or warped rotors will do this. It's a pain I know but rotors should be replaced or ground to true everytime new brake pads are installed.
I hope my suggestions helps and all the luck to you.

Brake pads

I have used Wagner brake pads for several years and have good good luck with them...I think they are called the Thermo Quiets. i tried a house brand and they were noisy and created alot of brake dust.
