Question about 2004 Chevrolet Tahoe

1 Answer

Chevy Tahoe 2004 Anti Theft Device has been activated.

Drove car to and from store. Went back to try and start the car after an hour and the anti-theft light on the control panel is on. Car ignition does not turn on. Nothing happens when you turn the ignition key.

    on my 2010 malibu I have to pair my cell phone with the bluetooth every time I turn the ignition off. I ask for a list and it tells me there are no bluetooth devices stored, but when I name the device the same as it was named the last time it says that sounds to much like the the last name. What would make me have to pair the same phone every time I get in the car?

Do a 2004 Chevy classic have a fuel pump access panel

no,your anti theft device is activated,you need to lock and unlock your doors a couple times with the key fob,not the key,and then you need to put the key in the ignition and start it,if you dont have your key fob,call your car dealer to get a new one,they are programmed for each car only,you cannot bypass it.

1996 Saturn sl1 was starting on a dime and now wont start

Hi Jennifer, I believe that it purely coincidence that this problem started when your dad drove the car. There is basically nothing he could have done to promote the problem. I believe the fault has something to do with the anti theft device becoming active. If you can manage to have the car diagnostically scanned and the key encodement re activated I'm thinking that will sort out the problem. Even if that is not the problem the diagnostic scan will pin point where the problem is. Regards John

Hi Raloo, Seems to me you could have a problem with the anti theft device. If you have a problem with the injection side of the vehicle, which is what it sounds like make sure the anti theft has not become active. Regards John

Fuel pump replacement 1999 chevy tahoe

Check this web site for auto repair estimates. Your fuel pump is inside the fuel tank. In my area, the job would run $400-600 at a dealer, $200 or so less at an independent garage, for the pump in the rear tank. If you have a tank on the left side, it runs about $100 more. The site will also have listings for independent garages in your area.
