I wonder if the antenna for the remote is flexible and isn't in the same position in every Acadia, fallen down behind thicker metal?MA Acadia said:The factory extended remote range on my 2010 sucks, I also brought it to the dealer and they said it was normal. One of the reasons I keep Onstar is because I can start my car from far away with my phone. My old 2003 Malibu with factory remote start has a range of 4X the Acadia range, GM didn't do something right with the remote in the Acadia. :shrug:
Just got the Acadia back this morning, drove it 6 miles and the CEL illuminated and the "traction control off" "service stabilitrak" "service traction control" warnings were back on. So u-turn and back to the shop, once again the dreaded P0174 "lean bank 2" error. I bet they tell me the preheater on the O2 is bad for that bank...but we shall see.AA/78U-Supreme Forum Moderator said:Someone research this TSB; GeoHawk, rbarrios could you post the wording from this TSB?
Not sure about a antenna but you would hope the dealer looked at that when I brought it in. I think most people complain about the range of the remote start in the 2010 plus Acadia. I did try a new battery in the remote and that did not help at all, I even tried the other remote and same thing. :thumbdown:Nvr2loud said:I wonder if the antenna for the remote is flexible and isn't in the same position in every Acadia, fallen down behind thicker metal?
What about the battery in the remote, I switch my remotes back and forth every couple of weeks so that they wear evenly (keys included)
Hey LemonKat,LemonKat said:My '08 Acadia is having the same issue with the service Stabilitrak and Traction Control messages flashing on various times without consistency. I believe it with a service break system message and continues after having replaced brake cylinder and brake boosters...about $600 worth of repairs with under 50,000 miles. Dealer said the computer may need to be reset after the brake work was done but the messages still come on. I see the other posts on possible solutions, but I'm tired of the guessing game and the repair after repair. First GMC and NOT impressed. First week purchased the ECM went out but under warranty so replaced. Sunroof leaks through the airbag deployment area, car will not start after fueling whether I too off or not, and if it rains my power steering may not work bc I've been told water gets on the belt and causes it to slip. The solution was a deflector but I already have a deflector so nothing was done to fix the problem.

They did cover the TSB since I was only 28 days out of warranty - TSB PI074C - Parts include: both right and left valve covers, new insulated PCV tube (12616913) and gaskets. Beware if you do this yourself, it is noted on my invoice they broke the nipple off of the power steering reservoir and had to replace it. I think this will cure the problem with the oil build up in the intake hose between the MAF and the throttle body even if it didn't fix my underlying issue.
Hey KDunc,KDunc said:I continue to get the CEL & Traction Control Off on a daily basis, now the Check Engine light stays on. Onstar was able to get the following codes yesterday: C0561 - should service in 5 days and P0101 - should service in 1 day if light does not clear after 7 times turning off and on (really?) I have an appt with dealer again for tomorrow, will keep you updated.
So far, with all the research I have seen in this and other forums, here are the causes per the Dealers and GM:
Check/replace timing chain
Check==Coil Packs-Cam Shaft Sensor-Air Mass Flow Sensor-Manifold Absolute Pressure Sensor-Throttle Body leak/clean-Purge Solenoid-Shifter Cable (pin placement)-Cam Shaft Actuator-Cam Position Sensor-Steering Wheel position Sensor-Valve Covers, Master Cylinder,,,,,,need I say more?
I have 93K miles now. Not sure how much of the above would be covered under my extended warranty (through Chrysler) but I'm a little scared.
Hello! I am interested in learning more about the issue that occurred regarding your GM certified dealership. Please private message me the details.robert_jones06 said:My wife and I bought a 2008 Acadia used from GMC 3 month ago. When we first did the financing they offered us a warranty on it. But when the bank came back and said that they had to lower the price, there went the warranty. The truck had 82k miles on it when we bought it. The first month it was fine. Then we had a "Service Battery Charging System" light and message followed by "Traction Control Off/Service Stabilitrak" messages. When I called GMC customer service, they said that they could not do anything about it because it was not a "Certified" Used Car. So I called the dealership where I bought the vehicle. They told us that it was the battery and it needed to be replaced. So, yesterday I went and bought a battery and replaced it. The light stayed off for a few hours and then on my way to work this morning then lights returned. Any ideas?
