2002 Envoy rear wiper and washer suddenly not working.

It sounds like you have a grounding issue somewhere. Look up a fuse diagram for the cabin fuse panel. Start from there.

I have a 2002 GMC Envoy, the idle goes up/down & wants to die out when using the defrost/fan during the start up/idle. Is it a vacuum line somewhere?

Common problem after the battery is unhooked or replaced. You'll get the same results if you turn the AC on also...Unhook the battery, clean your throttle body, with throttle body cleaner (Seafoam works good) with only a rag or plastic bristled brush, no metal as it will scratch it. I prefer to remove the throttle body (4 bolts) to clean both sides, you CAN reuse the hard plastic gasket. When finished, hook the battery back up and drive around for 15 min or so (with no defrost or AC on,everything off), for the computer to relearn the newly cleaned TB. Your problem will be solved for about $8 if you do it yourself.

2006 GMC Envoy car alarm goes off when I open doors or start engine. This happened after installing new battery. It had the same problem when I bought it in 2008. I forget how it was solved.

U need to reset security system (pass lock II). Turn key to on right b4 cranking but don't start and let security light flash for about 10-12 mins until it stops and then turn key back off, repeat procedure two more times don't actually turn key far enough to start during first two 10-12 min cycles, third cycle though after flashing stops turn the rest of the way forward for it to start. This should then reset security and solve problem sometimes only takes two cycles to reset. Good luck, hope this is helpful & solves problem.

HEllo I have a 2003 GMC Envoy SLT and evey morning the rear end is down practecaly on the floor but when i turn it on the compresor lift the cars rear end back up. I do hear the leak of air in the rear...

well have you determined where the air leak is coming from???? Get soapy water and locate, could just be a fitting loose and a snug with a wrench is all. If this vehicle has an air bag and it is leaking from a puncture or crack in the bag then it has to be replaced, but check air line and fittings with soapy (dish soap ) water first.

2002 gmc envoy xl air bag light is on

You will have to be very careful!!! There have been cases where the airbag lights come on because of an internal computer problem. If you go to your dealer, or maybe a local shop, they will have to hook it up to a computer to determine the problem. Not to get too excited, but some people have had the bag actually deploy, so I usually make that known to anyone I help with an airbag light. Hope all goes well, and please be safe.

Engine will not start 2002 GMC Envoy

It could be a few different things. Do you hear a clicking during turn over? Its most likely your starter motor. After time the magnets wear down, and the bendix gear will not extend out to your fly wheel. Its actually a very common problem. I hope thats it, becouse it gets more expensive after that. If you have the knowledge to pull the starter out yourself, which is pretty ez, you can take it to a auto parts store, and they will test it for free.
