Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

On my 2004 tahoe my check engine light came on yesterday. Runs well, makes this wiered noise when turning the engine on an off. Sound like air being released. Taking it to see what coad pops up today. But I jus bought it with no warrenty (stupid me) but I trusted chevy.( got it from dealer ship) in one month the driver master switch for the windows went out an the part that controls the dash board has a problem.

    I agree with TED- in the future google recalls & problems with any vehicle your thinking of buying & even stop at a couple shops & ask questions about specific vehicles & things shops see I suggest you don't go to a dealer & use a private shop or small shop such as ted has & build a relationship there,then you don't need a warrantee

SOURCE: I changed the battery in my 2004 Chevy Tahoe

I recently had the same problem with my 04 Silverado 2500HD after I replaced the battery. I am guessing that you have dual climate contol. You need to reset the climate control. I reset mine by simply shutting the AC off when truck is running and parked. Then turn off the truck
and pull the AC and HVAC fuses out of the fuse box. Leave them out a few seconds and put them back in. Start the vehicle and leave the AC off for about a minute, then turn it on. This should fix the problem. If not, try it again. If still not, you might have to do the same thing except unhook the battery at the same time you pull the fuses. Good luck.
It worked for me.

SOURCE: dash board is digital and the dash lights went out

Remove the 5 mounting screws from the instrument cluster trim plate and remove the trim plate. Remove the 4 mounting screws from the instrument panel face plate and remove the face plate.Remove the instrument light grid from the center of the cluster. From behind the instrument cluster reach behind the speedometer and disconnect the speedometer cable by releasing the tab. Pull the cluster forward just enough to detach the "check engine" light bulb from the center of the cluster. Remove the instrument cluster from the dashboard.

2004 chevy trk tahoe ran all day with no problems. parked it for 1 1/2 hrs. Tried to start it up and nothing. Turned on the ignition, it didn't start. Thought it was the battery, had it jumped but nothing....

Hello: When you turn the key to run does the lights on the dash light up? ie, alt/bat, check engine light, oil press light, air bag light if these and several other lights come on you may have a failed pass-lock system. A scanner can check for codes to that problem. If that is the problem the ignition lock cylinder will need replacing and programming.

2004 tahoe making roaring sound and abs indicator light coming on. Jacked truck up to check brakes and they are fine.In two wheel drive with front end raised passenger wheel turns freely,driver side wheel...

The ABS has nothing to do with your brakes as you put it
It is the Wheel Speed Sensors and other components,
not the rotor,pads,etc There is no computer attachment
there as you understand
All check lights etc have to come from hard wired OBD2
(1996 thru2011) Systems reporting to ECM,PCM's etc,
some kind of module
We live in an Electronic Automotive World,not an Auto
Computer World.
With the noise, you could have a bad Wheel Hub Assy,
and also sensor.
Get the codes from the system, whenever any light comes
on,then you have to diagnose that system
Codes do not tell what is wrong or what to replace

Your wheels on any vehicle, wont turn the way you are checking them
as the pinion gears in the diff, as well as other 4x4 features
seem to prevent it. Poor explaination,turn yes, free both side,no

The check engine light keeps coming on in my 2004 Chevy Tahoe. At first when it came on, it would show a warning message that states Reduced Engine Speed and the Tahoe wouldn't have any power. Now, it's...

Most auto parts stores have Scanners that can read the actual Codes causing the check engine light- usually for FREE. Google the Codes to determine what needs fixed.

Do not continue to drive it, as it may cause permanent damage!

My air condition belt broke in my 2001 Tahoe how can I tell if Compressor or Pulley is bad without belt?

The test is a simple one, with engine off and cooled down test the pulleys by hand, turn them slowly in the direction of rotation and feel for a binding sound or feel, if you feel a noticable bind and noise your culprit is the pulley or the a/c compressor.
Test whatever else runs off this belt as well by doing the same test.

'07 Tahoe; check engine light on steady. Just came

Have a dealer or garage check your Oxygen (O2) sensor. As a quick fix, try disconnecting and reconnecting your car battery. Sometimes this will reset the check engine light.Good Luck!

2001 Tahoe: Hard to start, idles rough, check engine light on.

Flashing check engine light is missfire, fuel pump probably causing multiple tries to start.Having to build fuel preasure,vac leak on one side of intake probably causing rich/lean condition.Also check back preasure to cat ,Sound like you are moving down right track.Mas air flow would probably set lean code bank1 and lean code bank2

Loud air intake engine noise on startup

I would guess it is the electronic fan clutch. It will cause the fan to run too fast (very loud) and the light will come on sometimes.

To check the codes turn the key off/on 3 times in 5 seconds. Now count the flashes. A short pause will be a 2 didget number, long pause next . Check that the air filter is clean. Frankster016
