When turning left, the engine just about dies, then it finally takes off again. The anti-lock light comes on and shuts down the fuel. If I push the button for the traction control it won't die down.
Do you

Scan for codes there may be a wire shorting out and scanning will show where problem lies maybe. When the abs comes on it shuts down trac control. It may be the reason the fuel is shutting down

We've had this Yukon to two garages and the GM dealer. The dealer reprogramed the
computer and it still didn't fix the problem, so my husband is thinking of removing the fuse for the abs. Will this solve the problem?

Thank you very much for your help. The Johnsons

I am on a vacation right now and won't be back until next Thursday, but pulling the fuse will disable the abs as well as traction control. If you can get it scanned and give me the code so I can look into this further I will look into this as best I can. If there are multiple codes then clean the battery terminal ends and have the battery checked for condition including a load test most places do for free. Also clean the throttle plate on both sides as well as the iac hole. If the truck has over 60,000 miles replace the belt AND tensioner as this may be not charging the battery and that can make things screwy computer wise. I do not have access to my manual until I get back home to check the wiring for this to give you other things to check to try to eliminate your problem.

Finally got the Envoy(not a Yukon, I, always get the name mixed up.)Fixed. My husband took it to one more place, and, so far, it's running great. They ran a computer scan and road test. Reviewed flight recorder info. Diagnosed bad left front wheel bearing.

Finally got our Envoy(not a Yukon, as I earlier said) fixed. Took it to one more place. Here is what they did, quoting them. Ran a computer scan and road test. Reviewed flight recorder info. Diagnose bad left front wheel bearing Replaced the wheel bearing and hub assembly and left front brake rotor. Got it done on Tues. And seems to be running fine so far. Thanks so much for your help and concern. The Johnson's from Indiana.

Flight recorder data is putting it on a scope and driving it to find the problem. Glad it's fixed.
