2003 GMC Yukon Denali displays a repeating English and French language but won't let me select language


Asked by Jun 01, 2014 at 06:43 PM about the 2000 GMC Yukon Denali 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Won't let me select English so none of the information is available like the odometer
reading etc. Thought it might be battery, so got a new one, but that didn't fix it. Not sure if
this is related, but now AC turns to hot air almost every day.  Have to shut the car off and
restart it, then it gets cold again.

That was not what I'm asking. I'm saying that it just keeps scrolling "English" "French" but then doesn't let me select either, so NO information is available such as odometer reading etc.

sorry- I never had a car that had language options. Best I can suggest is that that kind of option means a computer chip ;means an instruction on how to use this option is in your owner's manual perhaps. The a/c acting up is a temp sensor perhaps malfunctioning and confusing the system into thinking it wants cold then telling it that it needs heat, My system works by me setting the temp I want . In the winter the heat comes on until that temp is achieved; in the summer the a/c kicks in until the temp is lowered. If mine went down to 20C in the summer and then immediatly started to heat when it hit 20 then I 'd be stuck with seeking a mechanic that could explain the problem and fix it. Finding someone who can explain & fix (without just replacing A, then oops let's try a new B,etc. ) is the bain of owning a car. IF the hot air comes only at start up then if you allow it to run it will get cold ;then the initial hot air is just the system purging itself prior to cool air coming- that's what mine does.

Forgot the obvious - if you are following the instruction step by step re:language and it doesn't work; then, you are going to need to go beyond a d.i.y. fix. (leave electonics and computers to the specialists)
