Battery cables corroded . Never saw a blue color of acid before . What a mess .
every Tahoe I have ever owned had battery issues, but I did get a larger alternator, larger battery and much better cables solved my problem. my Tahoe was special ordered, got a lot of extras on this model, still use it today, its better than a tank.
