2001 gmc Denali 6.0 does not have a smooth idle. Garage hooked up to computer and indicated random misfire does not have a check engine light on. Misfire/hesitation is not noticeable when accelerating only when stopped or idling. Garage sent it home saying they couldn't find anything wrong or explain why it was misfiring.

Mine had the same exact problem, my idle speed would drop so low that my air conditioning would blow hot air.
I cleaned the throttle body and its perfect now. Idling at 600 rpm and cold air when stopped.

SOURCE: 2001 GMC Denali 6.0 does not have a smooth idle.

The problem with the 01 Denali I'm envolved in fixing is too low of idle. My scanner is showing random misfire on six of eigth cylinders but goes to zero count when idle is raised to 800 rpm. Going to remove the throttle body this time and thoroughly clean it to see if I can get the correct idle back.

Hi the last digit is 0 this means its detected a fault but it does not know why the misfire is if it had 1 at end it would be sparkplug 1. and so on. 0 could mean there is a problem with the timing or there is something wrong with the coil pack , coil pack it could be a fault at the plugs or the wiring. if you remove the spark plugs and the one or 2 that don't look right, investigate them, make sure there is no problems with the case of the coil pack. color of the connections and the case cover no cracks or splits. it can also be blocked jets this can limit the fuel into the engine and cause the same fault.

The parking lights on our 2001 GMC Yukon XL stay on after turning the vehicle off. This drains the battery down to prevent starting again. What is wrong?

Hi, there is a park relay in middle of the interior relay box under the dash to the left of the steering column. This is shown on page 6-61 of your owner's manual (
With the battery connected, pull out the relay and push it back in. If it clicks when you do this, the headlight switch is bad. If it doesn't click, the relay is bad. Try swapping the relay with another similar relay, such as the horn or A/C relay. If that solves the problem you need a relay. If not, you need a switch. Please let me know if you have any questions, and thanks for using FixYa.
