Continued electrical problems with 2002 GMC Envoy. Such as on-star telephone along with radio/cd player, all four doors failing to lock or open including the back hatch. Service air bag light and engine check lights coming on. Reprogram engine/transmission module, also telephone antenna replaced, short in wiring located due to rubbing/pinching during construction, replaced wiring harness. Hundreds of dollars required to identify short in wiring. Transmission operates sluggish until warmed-up vehicle feels as if the brakes are on until it has moved several blocks.

The electrical computer memory for the exterior mirrors and the seat adjuster failed. This caused the seats for driver and passenger side not to be adjusted. Also the mirrors are not able to be adjusted. Driver has to continously adjust the miirrors in order to see. Dealer reset memory seats, reprogrammed mirror memory, and replaced left and right front seat modules. Did not remedy problem. Customer states that there is a fuel leak loss of 1/2 tank in 3 miles. Dealer repaired loose connection between main fuel line and the fuel tank.
