1997 GMC Suburban C2500 4dr SUV


I have had my truck for 5 years. Although I haven't had to replace the fuel pump, I am having some electrical issues. The starter is not bad, but sometimes I will drive some place, get out, and get back in the truck...it won't say a sound, no turn over or nothing but everything in the truck still works. I took it to GMC and they refused to dig into the problem because it would not stall there (no wonder they are in bankrupt). They put a $356 wire on it, and it did it again as soon as I stopped to the store leaving. No one would come up the road to help me.(maybe 5 blocks) Great vehicle but the gas cost is killing me! If I can get it to stop stalling, it would be even better!

Best Features

My fav would be the cd and cassette player combo.

Worst Features

I would suggest a switch that can turn off/on the headlights. It is annoying when they are constantly on. Also a reliable horn, mine is gone out, and it's not the fuse.
