Failure Date: 12/20/2015

On December 20, 2015 we were traveling after dark (7:30 pm) and the head lamps went off. We managed to pull out of traffic safely. Could not figure out what happened. After sitting for approximately 5 minutes the lamps came back on and we were driving to our home and the lamps went off again. I took the vehicle to a chevy dealer and they could not help me. I then called the GMC dealer and got the same response. I then checked online and found out that gm knows of this problem which is caused by a headlamp module overheating. I know this problem is occurring to other people so why hasn't there been a recall. ? help.

Exterior lights will not come on. I work nights so it's imperative my lights are in good working condition. Driving 65 down a highway in the middle of the night and your lights shut off is a scary situation. I noticed a recall for this is under development. I'm not sure what that means and would appreciate clarification.

Failure Date: 08/07/2015

I was driving down the highway after dark and my low beams completely went out. I could only get my high beams to work. Currently only one low beam is working and the other will not work even after changing the bulb or the fuse. I believe this is a huge safety concern especially having a young child. It was very scary going down the road at night and have your lights completely just go out. I have noticed that there are issues with 06-07 Envoys but I wanted gm to be made aware that 2005 models have been affected as well.

Failure Date: 07/17/2015

While servicing my vehicle at an authorized gm dealership, I was notified of the recent recall regarding headlamps which get hot and can fail. It has been nearly 8 months since that recall was issued, and yet there remains no identifiable remedy or solution as to how they will resolve the issue and repair / replace the defective components. . Entitled to safe vehicles, I am unsure as to how or why gm would believe that 8 months to not even have announced a solution is an absurdity. At this point, the period of time in which the manufacturer has had to develop and implement a solution is simply unacceptable as a consumer. I am under the belief that their solution to the problem is simple, they are going let the vehicles age a few more years and hope by that time, additional vehicles requiring repair will no longer be on the road and the issue will magically go away. As owners of this vehicle, I am entitled to the remedy as promised under recall gm 14291, and I do not think that it is acceptable for manufacturers to sit on open recalls for vehicles currently on our roadways which have been already been identified as having a safety defect in need of defect replacement or repair.

Low beam lights failing intermittently. Lights shut off twice @ 9:30 pm on 5/16/2015 driving on divided highway at 65 mph. The lights started operating normally after pulling off on the shoulder both times. Researched the web and found this is a problem with probably the headlamp driver modules or relay. Drove the SUV to the GMC dealer today and they said they had no record of a recall for this unit and any work done on the problem would be billed to me. I left the dealer and called GMC and had them pull up this unit on their system and got the same run around. They finally told me that some 2007 GMC Envoys are being recalled for this condition but not mine. This is a scary condition and due to an extreme safety concern I purchased the relay at an auto parts store today for $38. 31 and installed it myself. This problem is probably more wide spread than GMC has reported.
