You need to hook up an obd2 scanner to the port under the steering wheel and see what your computer says which sensor or circuit is acting up

2004 gmc envoy went into limp mode and has no codes, any idea why

limp mode is a situation initiated by the ECM to protect the engine and/or the transmission
the problem is in the transmission and the TCM has lost continuity so at 2nd ratio it is shutting down the transmission so that more than 1 ratio cannot be selected together or the engine rpms can not go so high as to blow a motor
have the fault codes read to find the servo/ solenoid /sensor that has failed

I have a 2004 envoy which wont move when put into gear. Is this a lockdown mode and how to fix it?

if their is a check engine light have the code read ------no such thing as lock down mode you have limp mode which will let you limp vehicle home or to a shop or off road safely sounds like a transmission problem check fluid --look and smell if it looks burnt brownish and or smells burnt try a flush with a fluid and filter change may gey lucky ---look under vehicle and check the selector cable and connections sometimes disconnect or rot away lastely possible internal problem which would need a transmission specialist to look at

Had a flat tire,reduced engine power light came on

Either the tire pressure monitoring system detected excessively low or zero tire pressure and the computer has been programmed to set the vehicle into limp mode when that happens or a wheel speed sensor or another sensor detected an issue when the tire deflated and the computer sent the vehicle into limp mode.

One way or the other, once in limp mode there would have been fault codes generated and could have be read with a scan tool. They have probably cleared now.

What causes a 2004 envoy to loose power. i have changed spark plugs and wires and changed fuel filter and none of that worked?

Sensors for the engine control module or the module itself change timing . If something goes wrong, the module goes into what's called the limp in mode. It keeps the engine running so you're not stranded. It only allows limited driveability, just enough to get you home or to a repair shop.

Car alarm goes off when I use the key to open doors or start engine on my 2006 GMC Envoy. Problem started when I installed new battery.

Not familiar with the envoy, but most all GMC trucks have a alarm reset button under the dash by the steering column to reset after battery problems. Why did you change the battery? It may also be your starter has shorted out which will set off the alarm. Good Luck

2006 slt gmc envoy ac problems vent controls anbd

{: ) The popping sound you heard is caused by the sudden movement of an HVAC door, most probably coming from the recirculation door actuator (right dashboard area) or the mode actuator( mid dashboard area). The fan outputs could be normally working, but is being muffled by the incorrect positioning of the HVAC doors, giving an impression that there is fault in the blower controls. In other words, your vehicle is having an air distribution issue.
If there's no conflict in your climate settings, then the trouble may be in the HVAC doors binding or broken, or the actuators faulty or sticking. In both cases, servicing may involve removal of the dashboard to access these HVAC components.
