Question about 2004 GMC Envoy

1 Answer

I just got my battery replaced in my Envoy and ever since it idles low and when I turn my AC/Heat on it shuts the truck off. I heard that I need to get it programmed or maybe after a few weeks it would kind of go back to normal. Help please. What is going on with my truck. It was perfectly fine before, besides the dead battery

Throttle body needs to be cleaned front and back. Disconnect battery while doing the cleaning to force PCM relearn.

2002 gmc envoy stalls when turning and slowing down


I am going to assume the check engine light is not on.
I would check the throttle body to see if it needs to be cleaned, and check the idle air control valve to see if it is working. The computer controls idle speed by the amount of air coming into the throttle body.
The ac problem is probably something different such as low freon or a cooling fan problem.

There is usually an idle solenoid on the throttle body that is designed to bump up the idle when the A/C is switched on, this could be bad, or out of adjustment.

Sounds like you may have disconnected the battery. Does the rough idle only happen when the defroster or A/C is on? If so clean your throttle body with throttle body cleaner with the battery disconnected. When finished, drive it for 5 or so miles with the defroster / AC off to let the computer relearn the settings. This will solve your problem.

Sounds like ac compressor is dragging.It might be that rpm is to low also.Step on the accelarator and if you have a tach bring rpm up to 700 to 800 in drive which is were it should run with ac on. With ac off rpm should read around 600 in drive.

2002 gmc envoy shuts off when i turn on the ac whil ideling


If it does it when idling I would suspect an IAC motor (Idle Air Control). If it is opening too slowly the added air the motor needs will not be supplied fast enough and the engine will kill.

It could be other things also but this is where I would start.
