Yes the computer has to be reprogramed... if you have a scanner it should tell you how to do it most of them you tap the key to start let it sit with key on for some minutes then repeat i cant remember how many times it has to be cycled that way but if you ask the dealer they should tell you

I have a 2008 Tahoe that had a similar error stabilization off, ABS errors, entire vehicle shutting off, door locks open/close at will, I changed out the Body control module and the programmer showed me the many communication errors from various modules, then one solution was suggested to change the Battery cable, so I started checking out the grounds and I found varying resistance from the Neg. Battery post to the Body so I removed the neg. cable to the engine and replaced the post with a threaded post connector and a 42 inch cable then added a 12inch to the frame, then also added a 12inch from the Neg. post to the body just under the Mega fuse, Make sure the paint is removed before you assemble and use the appropriate amount of washers to make the mega housing even to the body. No more errors, it was just a real bad ground and GM knows about this and it seems they are using this to make a lot of money off there unsuspecting customers,

Pulled 5,000 lb boat in 100 degree heat w/ 2003 Tahoe on Sunday (AC/lights/stereo, etc...). Mon a.m. Tahoe wouldn't crank- only radio & lights worked. 8 hrs later started with no problem. Let idle...

I would check battery connections, battery to motor ground, battery to body ground and motor to body ground strap connections. If you have a bad ground it can cause all kinds of electrical problems.

the post that everybody refuse to read or acknowledge is the first simple instruction
when ever there is a problem , have the fault codes read first
it is free at autozone and other parts shops
then knowing what the problem is you can have it fixed at an accredited service center for less money that fixing what is not faulty costs

I think I have a Short

I would guess that the battery post may have been reversed, or the positive was accidently touched to the negative, but you said that you only tightened the positive. My suggestion is check the fuses to be sure none or blown. If noe appear blown disconnect the positive side of the battery for ten minutes to reset the SUV's computer. If this doesn't work try replacing the relays for the dash. Now give it a try. Hopefully this works for you. Let me know how it works out. There are a couple other things you could check.
