2006 Chevrolet Tahoe Problems

Speedometer or Other Instrument Panel Gauge May Work Erratically

The speedometer or other instrument panel gauge may begin to work erratically at times. Our technicians tell us that the instrument cluster must be sent to a repair facility to correct this fault. The warranty has been extended on some of these units to 7 years or 70,000 miles.

Improper HVAC Temperature and/or Air Delivery Due to Failed Mode Door Actuator

One or more heater & AC (HVAC) air delivery and/or temperature mode door actuator may fail. This can result in incorrect air delivery or temperature. If this occurs, fault code(s) stored in the HVAC control module should be available to assist with diagnoses.

Rear Window Defogger Wire Terminal Broken Off of Window Glass

The rear window defogger may stop working due to a wire terminal broken off of the rear glass. Our technicians tell us that terminal can be reattached using a special glue or silver solder.

2006 Chevrolet Tahoe Recalls

Sure Power Brand Battery Equalizers Overheat; Monroe Truck Equipment Vehicles

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.

Tire and Loading Information Labels Are Innacurate

The tire and loading information label on the driver's side door frame may be inaccurate. A misprinted label could lead to overloading of the vehicle, which could possibly lead to tire failure and a crash. Owners will be provided with corrected labels and installation instructions. At customers' request, a dealer can install the label for them. The recall began March 31, 2006. The GM recall number is 05109.

Power Steering Hose May Burst

Some vehicles have a power steering hose that was not made to specification and may rupture under extreme steering conditions. If this were to happen, power steering assist would be lost and steering effort would increase. On vehicles equipped with hydro-boost brakes, braking effort would also increase. If power steering fluid were to spray on hot engine parts, an engine compartment fire could also occur. Dealers will inspect the power steering hose(s) for the two suspect date codes and replace them if needed. The recall began October 14, 2005. The GM recall number is 05086.

Interior fit and finish only fair -...
