just signed up , switching from my older ford explorer ( where ive been a part of their great, helpful explorer forum site)- to my 2013 acadia denali, that ive had for 2 weeks.....lookin forward to checking this site out! so far, thoroughly impressed 👌
ive already had a run in with my acadia that took 6 days to solve ! my key fob stopped working, so i unlocked the door with my key...it started those few softer beep horns, then went into loud alarm horn & went into theft lock mode....(gmc dealership told me to push in brake & start should fix but it didnt).....everytime i tried to start it, it went off & wouldnt even try to turn over, nothing! unhooked battery for night, jumped in the morning and it started ....key fob worked/unlocked and locked doirs also ....later that day, it repeated ...key fob not work..i went d bought new battery for the key fob just covering my basis, but of course that did nothing ....so i had to try, and i unlocked door with key again & same **** alarm , theft mode...shocker huh?!
car place sent out lock smith thinking the key fob was the prob, but he hooked up a thing to read the voltage on battery & said battery is the problem - towed to car lot, new battery placed, fixed ......perfect! car place kept it 3 days extra bc the top of windshield wasnt sealed & my cup holders were like full of water, and my dash was all wet from the rain....the windshield ppl had to come to car lot & seal it properly...everything is great, except now the only looming issue is this **** AC!! the light flashes 3 times then goes off, and it doesnt blow cold (been like that since i got it)...the car place said they charged the AC before i bought it, so they added freon coolant(they said freon was empty) while they had it for battery & windshield saying it was ok now....however , the next day when i tried it , its the same thing...3 flashes & nothing...ive read a bit online & sounds like a common prob on gmc's & acadias....anything from vavles, to a leak in line, to compressor but i think the majority say its a temp sensor thats the problem - something with the climate control??? ....its been 80s & 90s here in KC , so the under 40 degree thing doesnt apply ....sorry for the novel, just wanted to include that alarm/battery issue & this AC along with my hello 😊 (trying to figure out how to add my acadia car info on "signature" grrrrr)
