2002 Tahoe steering column wiring problems

I have a 2002 tahoe. When I adjust the position of the steering column, it cuts the headlights off. I have to move the column up and down to find a position where the headlights will stay on.

    I have the same problem with my 02 Tahoe, the headlights do not work with the steering wheel in certain tilt positions. It acts like a pinched wire or a loose connection and I am afraid to start tearing a part the steering column in fear of the air bag going off. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

The wiring harness that run the multifunction swith has broke. I took my column apart and soldered the wires back together for the mean time. I dont suggest tring to do that its not a good fix. i found your post looking for the harrness. If you disconnect the battery you disconnect the airbag system

02-03 tahoe will not shift into park


This isn't a shade tree job.Be sure ignition is on and press brake pedal to get it into park.....Normally it is the shift linkage inside the column or where it connects at the trans...You can disconnect linkage from trans and put it in park by hand ...However it is dangerous and I don't recommend it..If it is in the column you have to remove all the covers and steering wheel to get a good inspection..DONT NOT TRY THIS...Only a trained Tech.should..Air bag could kill you...If you don't have a choice disconnect battery before touching steering...Adjustable steering wheels are bad for this.....It would be safer to contact a good garage..

I have a 1995 Ford Explorer Limited and the high beams work but the low beams and fog lights do not, please help....


These trucks are known for bad multifuction switches.
the switch that i talk of is the signal switch , the handle is the switch, it bolts to side of steering column . this switch controls the signals and the headlights and high /low beams. the other thing is the headlight switch connector, the connector some times goes bad and starts to melt or just comes out of the connector. you will need to remove the cover to steering column, the screws are located under the bottom cover in holes. remove cover and check connector and then test for power if you have power going into switch but not coming out then switch is bad.

the last thing is to make sure the bulbs are good , make sure the headlight bulbs are good , and also the driving light bulbs, test for power at the connectors to those lights to.
You will need to do a little testing to find the problem.

Loud noise in the steering column;gear box replacd recently


Believe it or not there are some problems you should take to the dealer. It never was the gear box, its a defective steering column bushing. That problem had a factory notice and the dealer would have diagnosed it immediately an fixed it free parts +$40.install. Tahoes get that problem.

Steering column noise


Same problem. The shaft they lubed is called the intemediate steering shaft. Not a safety issue according to GM. The shaft has to be removed and lubed using a kit and procedure from GM. Not a big deal to do but there are some precautions that need to be taken concerning the air bags/steering coil.
