The idler arm is part of the steering linkage on your 1999 Chevrolet Tahoe. It is located on the right side providing a pivot point for the "center link". A worn idler are will cause excess free play in the steering. After the idler arm is replaced the wheel alignment should be check and adjusted as necessary. The service engine light will need to be properly diagnosed and repaired before the light will go off and say off. Please use the following link for more information on your engine light -
