20 Most Recent 2005 GMC Envoy Xl Questions & Answers

Hi, with most vehicle there may be a problem that you can identify, yours may have a few issues. I think you would benefit from a visit to a trans specalist to check the box over then go from there once that issue is sorted or discounted as the cause of problems. Your description appears complex/compound...i.e. there are possibly a few things going on at the same time

But it still cranks over at normal speed? If so, you need to begin by checking for gas and spark. Have the fuel pressure checked first, if less than specified, that is your problem. The spec for your GMC should be about 50 psi, maybe even as high as 60psi.

Yes, depending on if you have manual controls (Blower Motor Resistor) or automatic climate control ( Blower Motor Control Module), basically looks the same. Located on bottom of fan motor behind the glovebox. Need to remove plastic kick guard on bottom and look up. It's right there attached at bottom with 2 small screws. Must drop the glovebox door also, just release it down to get to the connectors into the blower itself.

You will need to remove the fuel tank from the truck and replace the fuel pump/fuel level sensor module that is inside the fuel tank. Use extreme caution when doing this as there is a real fire hazard.

Sounds like a problem with the shifter linkage. A linkage is basically the mechanical connections (rods, nuts, bolts, swivels, etc.) between two points; one is local and the other is remote. Motion or movement of one results in the same movement of the other. Your shifter is the local point for you and the transmission is the remote. If the linkage is bent, broken or missing parts, the local shifter movement will not be transferred to the remote transmission. A mechanic should be able diagnose and repair this for you pretty easily. Good luck!

Sounds like your electric cooling fan is not turning on. Check the fuses and relays associated with the fan circuit.

Hello David..some GM vehicles have a feature called Twilight Sentinel which provides a couple of minutes of "headlight on" time after turning the vehicle off. (Check your owners manual for this features operating instructions.)

If your headlights never turn off, the failure is most likely in the headlight switch as headlights are wired hot...meaning you can turn them on without the key in ignition.

Hey Stephen,,does the car turn over or is it completely dead?

If the engine, lights, horn don't work it your new battery.
Test or have tested, your new batteries charge and its performance
under load.

If the battery is okay and all the connections are tight and secure
and still no start..provide some more info on the no start vs no crank
question. Does the engine turn over?

Your owners manual might also provide some notes on changing the battery.

Call a general motors dealer and have them run your vin. There was a recall on the wiper control circuit (I don't remember the year range). If there is no recall, that is still likely the problem.

You need to be more specific. When does it do it? which gears? could just be a transmission mount or universal joint.

Keeping it as simple as possible, sounds to me like there is a fault in the wire itself, test the radio by using different speakers and wire.
There is also a fuse or 2 behind the radio (built in) and they sometimes blow, the sporadic working speaker can be a symptom of a slow-blow fuse going. Hope this helps..
