Chevrolet Tahoe Problems
The upper dash may crack, most commonly on vehicles in warm climates and exposed to a lot of sunlight. The common repair is to replace the upper instrument trim panel. Information on a technical service bulletin or extended warranty is not available at this time.
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.
The 4WD transfer case encoder motor position sensor or the selector switch may fail causing the service 4WD message to be displayed. Fault code(s) stored in the transfer case control module will be of assistance in determining the exact fault causing the message to be displayed.
Chevrolet Tahoe Questions
Put gas in stays on empty.
I have used the power socket to charge my cellphone and
to power my amber flashing light. I have been doing this
for about a year. I checked the fuse, but it looks okay.
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.
Chevrolet Tahoe Recalls
The ignition switch actuator can bind causing the ignition switch to stick in the "start" position. If this were to occur the actuator can unexpectedly release, cause the ignition switch to snap back into the "Accessory" position. This would cause the engine to turn off with an associated loss of brake and steering power assist. If these conditions were to lead to a crash the airbags may not deploy as expected. Dealers will inspect and replace the ignition lock housing as necessary to correct this concern.
The chassis electrical module can short due to internal contamination. This can result in the vehicle stalling. Dealers will replace the chassis electronic module free of charge to resolve the concern.
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.
