GMC Envoy owners have reported 8 problems related to radio/tape cd player (under the equipment category).
The contact owns a 2006 GMC Envoy. The contact started the ignition and the fuel gauge displayed an inaccurate reading even though fuel had been dispensed into the fuel tank. While driving, the fuel gauge reading fluctuated which caused difficulty in determining the actual fuel tank level. In addition, the air bag warning indicator illuminated continuously whenever the vehicle was operative. There were also electrical issues which contributed to the radio not to function and the instrument panel cluster lights would not illuminate. The fuel sensor was replaced previously by the dealer and the failure recurred three years later. The vehicle had not been repaired for the most recent fuel gauge malfunction. There were no repairs performed in relation to the other failures. The manufacturer was notified of the problem. The approximate failure mileage was 23,000. Updated 4/2/12
the consumer stated the fuel level sensor failed twice. Also, ai =r bag warning light was fixed by moving the srs wiring under the driver's sat. The radio and dash lights were replaced as well, due to inferior parts. Updatd 04/16/12.

I purchased my GMC Envoy with 17,000 miles a year and a half ago. Since purchase, my radio has had to be replaced twice because the cd player stops working. Since the last time it was replaced which was about 6 months ago:my cd player has stopped working again. The delaer says that since my vehicle is out of warranty, I will have to buy a new radio. I do not understand this concept because the radio has a year warranty on it. This is ridculous because this will be the third radio and the car only has 45,000 miles. Am I going to have to replace my radio every 15,000 miles? the type of radio that I have is a bose 6 disc in-dash cd radio. Can you please help me? I have had so many problems with my dealership and this vehicle that I will never buy another one. I need some professional advice. Thanks.

When the vehicle is on for an extended about of time (more than one hour) the surface of the radio gets extremely hot and has burnt my fingers. I confronted the dealership and they simply said to turn down the interior lighting (which was an insult). By surface I do not mean the buttons, but the surface around the buttons which is easily accessible. Numerous times I have reached down to adjust the radio and, while keeping my eyes on the road, touched the surface of the radio next to the buttons. This then made me jump at which time I easily could have lost control of the vehicle. This happens every time I drive the vehicle, this is why the number of failures is 800.
2003 GMC Envoy with a list of problems **
the consumer began to hear a knocking and pinging in the engine on cold starts and felt a hesitation when the automatic transmission shifted into gear. After many complaints, it was finally discovered the engine knock was due to shorter pistons in the re-designed engine and the hesitation in the transmission shifting required reprogramming. The consumer was told he would have to live with the engine knock, because it could be more trouble taking the engine apart. On a separate occasion, the engine stalled due to the battery dying. From April 2004 to October 2004 the battery failed several times and had to be re-charged. During that same time the engine light illuminated and each time it happened, the dealer would have to reprogram the engine computer. The radio was not functioning properly which primarily consisted of static. The driver information center control knobs as well as the radio knobs wore out. The front center console was loose. It was discovered that the engine light was coming on because the third stop light that's on the top of the liftgate malfunctioned. There was a short circuit in the stop light. The cooling fan broke, the brakes and the left front head lamp had to be replaced. The rear tail lights, directional and signal lights have been replaced several times. The lug nut broke while a replacement tire was being mounted on the vehicle. The front stabilizer linkage was replaced. The gas tank had to be replaced along with the fuel lines and a seal on the tank due to a leak. The seat belt was designed poorly and the belt cuts into the consumers neck. The drivers side door didn't close properly, the windshield wipers were replaced within the first 2 years.
