2005 Chevrolet Tahoe Questions
Very random. Turn key and dash lights come on lights and chimes but nothing from the starter. Keep trying and eventually it will start fine. I've replaced ignition switch and start relay. New battery and connections. Any info would be great.
2005 Chevrolet Tahoe Recalls
For vehicles modified by Monroe Truck Equipment, the electrical converter and battery equalizer may overheat, causing a fire hazard. The components will be replaced by the manufacturer free of charge to resolve the concern.
The second row center seat belt routing may make it difficult to position correctly on smaller passengers. If the seat belt rides up to fit around the abdomen, the risk of internal injury is increased in a crash. Dealers will cut the guide loop, remove a portion of the loop, and the remaining sides should be folded over and secured with a retainer. The recall began July 21, 2005. The GM recall number is 05037.
2005 Chevrolet Tahoe Reviews
I had a 2005 Tahoe and I got a short in my front headlight and after So long my truck caught on fire other then that I loved my truck... I just resently bought a 2008 Tahoe and I really like my 2005 better....
We purchased this Tahoe in 2005 with 14 miles on it. Since then we have put 1000's into it for bad seals, windshield wiper motor, transmission and many others things that needed replaced. This is by far the worst vehicle I have ever owned. We have put more money in to this peice of junk than it is worth. I will never buy another Chevrolet product ever.
I have a 2005 chevy tahoe 120k miles and haven't had very many problems except that recently my fan/ac/defrosters started going full blast and they haven't turned off since. :( Now i have to use pliers to turn off my car and that makes me feel like a ghetto ass loser. I love my car but having to disconnect the battery is a pain.
