    This. Gots to wash em...ALOT. People around here say, "it's just gonna be covered in crap again tomorrow"....Sure, my undercarriage isn't perfect, but it's crazy above average for 13 years here because it gets washed year round on the regular.

    I hit all the cheap quickie joints by me in the summer to see who has the best "undercarriage blaster." Most of them now offer an unlimited monthly deal or at least a buy 8 for the price of 10 booklet or something. I've got a barcode in the windshield now, and I can drive through there every day on my way home if I want to.

    Now I need to go look at mine lol. Sorry to share incorrect information. I also have no hood light on my 05 Escalade ESV Platinum with every damn option which drives me nuts.

    Corrosion on those ground straps, plus others, is pretty common. It seems like '90's to early 2000's GM SUV's and trucks end up having broken ground straps, which can cause electrical gremlins in the vehicle. It is so easy to clean up the studs and replace the straps that there is no reason not to do it, also can never hurt to add a strap.
