Stop having kids, leave the boat at the lake and use someone elses vehicle to put it in and out and then sell that thing during daylight hours!!!

Have a good holiday CP.

On my 2000 Sub, my horn quit working and the dealer had to replace a harness in/near the steering column. (not sure if this is related to your problem)

That's what I fear it is. It couldn't have been a cheap fix.

Well not the case. I can't figure out why I have no power to that plug. Fuses are fine. I have read on other forums about some wiring harness that is near the steering column that goes bad in these trucks. Ugh, I'm not good with electrical issues.

I thought somebody might be able to shed some....uh....light on this issue.
CP ole buddy................Face it, the Burb is WORN-OUT time to buy a new one. You want your wife and kids to be riding in "DEPENDABLE" transportation...............

Har, har. Unfortunately we will have that friggin truck for about another 5 or 6 years. It only has 99K on it. My brothers 93' had 195K on it when he got a new one. It's almost paid for and has been reliable...it's just thirsty. I figure when the kids are about 10 years old, they won't trash vehicles as bad as this one and it will be time for a Honda Ridgeline, unless something better comes along that can tow the boat and get decent mileage.

....maybe GM or Ford will come out with something that can tow the boat and get the mileage of a Ridgeline......but I'm not going to hold my breath.

Trading mine (99 Yukon 125k) on a AWD Torrent today.....Prolly gonna regret it. We have sold our Pontiac franchise back to GM and the deals are to good to pass up. Getting this toy for not much more than the last Sea Doo I bought. Gonna miss the old beast. Best driving vehicle I have had. Still have the Super Duty to do real work.....

More fun fellas.

A couple years ago we received a recall on the front brakes on my Suburban. At low speeds (less than 5 mph) occasionally the anti-lock brakes will kick in when the tires are not locked up. The letter instructed me to take the truck to the dealer and they would take care of the problem. We had this done and have had no problems until recently the truck started doing it again. I want to say I read somewhere that all they did was clean the anti-lock sensors. If this is the case, what would you use to clean them and where are they? I had a Ford Ranger that you could see the sensors when you had the rotors off, but I don't recall ever seeing them on my truck. Admittantly, I haven't looked very hard yet. Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance.

Yea, I know jkski and tricky, it's old, time to upgrade. But the ******* thing is almost paid for. I would like to have a free truck for a while before I buy again.

My 04' is starting to feel like it has a slight miss, but only at idle. Just not as smooth as it used to be. Runs fine in general. Any suggestions?
