Question about 2003 GMC Envoy Xl
Most of the time, car starts just fine. However, occasionally, mostly when it rains, when start is attempted, the instrument panel stays completely blank and nothing happens, no sounds or anything. It usually takes about an hour for starting to be restored at which time instrument displays/startup is completely normal. Battery is relatively new with full charge, battery terminals are clean/tight. Tried jiggling shift lever in park- no help. Changed keys, no help. Tried simulating rainy day by progressively hosing down front of car and underneath, then hosing down (cool) engine itself- no problems. I saw the recall about intermittent instrument panel problems fixed by dealer re-programming the instrument panel but that doesn't relate to starting according to the recall notice. Any ideas? Thanks, Bob
Check the other end of battery cables, may have good connection at battery but not at starter or ground. (Always check ground first, often a source of problems.)
Next time it happens, try hooking up jumper cables and see if the intrument panel lights up.
Also, check for loose fuse, not properly seated fuse. And cables to fuse block. (That model may have more than one fuse block)
