Question about 2007 GMC Yukon Denali

1 Answer

Two days ago my 2001 Yukon would not start; it would only make a clicking noise when I turned the key. I was able to start it by jumping it. I drove it for an hour and when I turned it off it went dead immediately. I was not able to even unlock the electric door locks. I was able to jump it again to drive home but again as soon as I turned it off it was dead immediately. I purchased a new battery and installed it this morning. The Yukon will now start without being jumped, but it will not continue to run. As long as I keep my foot on the accelerator, it will, but the minute I take my foot off of the accelerator it dies. Do I need to do something after replacing the battery to reset something or does this sound like a different problem?

It sounds as if your alternator may have gone out. If you take the Yukon by an autoparts shop (Checker, Autozone, etc.), they can run a quick charging system test for you. Good luck!

We bought a brand new battery one month ago. A few days ago, the car wouldn't start. We jumped it and it started. Today it won't start. When the key is turned, the car makes no noise. No clicking, no...


Check and clean the terminals then boost the car to start it after it starts. Well it's running take off the positive terminal if the car stops running the alternator is no good and you have to replace it.

Check if your transmission really is in park. I once had the same problem and it was fixed by moving the stick in and out of the park stand for a couple of times. Then the red light illuminating the "P" came on and i could start again.

Has to do with the transmission cable that tends to get a bit loose.

Starts one day not the next this happened 2 months ago help


If your starter was going your would hear a clicking noise from it. My 03 Aztek did the same thing. I was told it was the Egnition Switch and the BCM, replaced them and had it reprogrammed and it was not the problem. Turned out it was 3 yellow or red ( I forgot) little wires under neath the brake pedal that were losing connection and one was corroded

I have a 2001 GMC Yukon. It was running fine until two days ago. I went to start it on Saturday and it would only make a clicking noise. I was able to start it with jumper cables. I drove for an hour...


i had the same exact problem with my chevy s-10, but once i replaced the battery it ran fine no problem, u may have fried some circuits and relays while jumping the car, and alot of times that clicking noise is your relay burning out, did your car start doing weird things too? like ejecting cd's, flashing lights really fast and weird noises?
