    2003 Escalade Issues

    Hi!
    I bought an '03 Escalade a couple of months ago. It was great for about the first 2 weeks and then the issues started. It started off withe truck shutting down while I was driving down the road. It was like it was in aux mode. I took it to a mechanic and he changed the fuel filter and did some other things and have no more issues with that.

    The driver's mirror will not be in the same position I set it at when I unlock it with the same numbered key fob. Also, when I go to bring the mirrors in, I have to keep pressing the button (about 5-6 times) before they will go in.

    Here lately, the doors will unlock and lock back while I am driving. I am the only one in the front seat so I know for sure the lock/unlock button was not pressed.

    Also, when I was driving through the black hills a couple weekends ago, there would be a squeal everytime I went around a turn. It was like I was pressing on the brakes and the brakes were squeaky but I was just coasting.

    Any information anyone has will help greatly! I am not really worried about the squealing, but the electrical things concern me. Thanks!

    i know sometimes when the engine dies at idle it is where the throttle body needs cleaning.

    it seems the door module is failing due to the fact of two things one the mirror memory and two the door lock switch is tied into the driver's door module the memory seat module is the one with the heated and memory seat buttons the door module is the one with the window switches and lock switch.

    as far as the squeal it could be multiple things a few things come to my mind brake wear indicators, bearing being bad or a u joint does the noise go away when turning or not?

    Slow or fast because being all wheel drive if you are on sharp turn could be normal. Does it do it in both directions?
