I have a 04 gmc envoy xuv unknown driver message no security light will not start battery was bad got new one tryed passlock reset stills say unknown driver no start


It's a short in the instrument cluster.
I had the same problem with my 2004 XUV.
It started in early December of 2007.
Intermittent manifestations, than more persistent.
Took it to the GMC Dealer --
Of course, the Truck wouldn't do it's tricks for the Tech.
They replaced the ignition switch and sent me home.
It got progressively worse.
I waited until I was sure it would do it for the tech.
Took it back in to GMC Dealer--
It's a short in the instrument cluster.
They needed to replace the entire cluster.
I bought an extended warranty when I bought the truck.
The warranty is still in effect --
So I only had to pay the $100 deductible.
No Idea what it might cost otherwise.

My 2002 envoy want start it says unknown driver what do i do


Do you have a keyless remote on your ignition key? Or have you just replaced a key? If you haven't replaced a key, does your remote still work on your key? If not the battery in it is dead. If it's like mine, it's a CR2032 battery; they're about the size of a quarter. It says "unknown driver" because it has a factory alarm and your key is the on/off switch (either the little chip or in the remote).

P1237 fuel pump driver module


Have you checked the fuel shutoff switch? it's a safety device to shut off fuel flow in case of severe front or rear impacts, but sometimes it just trips for unknown reasons. It's behind the liner on the driver's side of the trunk. Look at the round opening on top: if you can see that the red button is setting level with top of the switch it has been activated. To reset it, push the button back down until it "clicks" into place (usually 1/2 inch down or so). If it has been activated and the button will not reset the unit must be replaced, and it is a dealer only item.

Unknown driver


You have a failed key sensor or anti personality module. You will need the dealer to scan the system to see exactly what is causing this error message.

So I changed the oil in my friend car and she has really high mileage on it so I put 10W-30 in it for high mileage an now it won't start can you help me out please


I would suggest a full synthetic oil, next time & stay with 5W-30
That will be better on start up

I have no idea why it won't start after only changing the oil

I think that was just a coincidence

I just installed a new throttle body ,because the motor has
acted up for 7 months & unknown the battery was failing
as I was diagnosing some odd behaveour

I was using professional scan tool software & when that
went weird I saw the computer module & battery voltages
going down,key on,engine off. So strange things happen
with todays electronics. When your think your on your game
things go to the twylight zone

Unknown Driver on my 2004 chevy Tahoe


Hi:
When your vehicle says : unknown driver, instead of Driver 1 or driver 2, you have had your battery totally dead. so dead that all the programming was lost, the part about not staying started, or not going into gear is a bit baffling, unless your alternator is the real problem, and the battery has just enough charge to barely start your truck, and may need to be fully charged first and stay running . You will need to do remote and seat reprogramming, when you get this figured out
