{: ) Your stabilitrak system may not work properly. The vehicle need to be scanned for trouble codes. In case you get a C0196 code, the recommendation is to reprogram the electronic brake control module. I hope that's the only cause.

It means the unit isn't reading your CDs/DVDs. It most likely means the unit is broken and needs to be replaced. There is no fix that I know of for CD/DVD units, only replacing.

What alarm ? content theft alarm ? No fuse
When armed, the content theft deterrent (CTD) system is designed to deter vehicle content theft by pulsing the horns and exterior lamps for approximately 30 seconds when an unauthorized vehicle entry is detected. However, the CTD system does not affect engine starting.
An unauthorized entry can be any of the following with the CTD system armed:
• When any door is opened without first being unlocked using the keyless entry transmitter
• After a battery reconnect, if the battery was disconnected with the CTD system armed
The components of the CTD system are:
• Body Control Module (BCM)
• Security indicator
• Door ajar switches
• Liftgate ajar switch

Is this the alarm your talking about ?

The radio and BCM needs read for codes. No reason for the radio not to work after a FOB program. Just a guess, but if the battery power was to low, radio is locked out.

Very poorly designed. You can try pulling inner fender wet off and see if you can access bulb. I have done this on arcadia which is same car. There are plastic plugs and screws, remove enough to get your hand in there.

The problem might be that the alternator is faulty or the idle screw is making the engine run at a very low speed when idle.

2008 GMC Acadia | Answered on Apr 20, 2017

There is probably a small drain on the battery - perhaps the luggage compartment light isn't switching off.

The car alternator isn't really capable of recharging a battery due to it's high internal impedance. It is better to recharge it independently.

I had the same problem. I started by applying penetrating oil to the bolt and then I tried a 2 jaw puller. But the jaws would not fit between the arm and the windshield. I then used a 2 1/2 inch "c" clamp and it fit perfectly. Turned the clamp bolt a few times, and the arm popped off the stud in about 10 seconds.

I haven't found a bad motor yet. It has always been the magnetic lock. Its part of the regulator. It is because of the coil burns or the gears strip out(plastic) . The regulator is on the drivers side, of course at the rear of the vehicle. You have to remove the bezel at the top, the is a square on it(pop it off) that has a bolt/screw to remove. The bottom bezel needs popped off to a point. It does need to be removed, but pushed up to a point that you can get to the regulator. If you want to remove it, the rear seat has to come out. Remove the bolts holding the regulator. unplug the electrical connectors.. Just a note. I do electrical/electronics on cars. I do have to pull panels sometimes to get to motors like these to check. I use a scanner to check every aspect of the/any system.. It could be a bad switch in the dash.
