Hey Kolby!

Sounds like you've got an issue with your alarm module, causing the immobilizer to activate (also known as a "start inhibitor"). I'm not sure what type of alarm you've got, but this will probably help you find out if there is something wrong with it:

There is a panel with relays on it behind the dash. At the bottom of the steering column, by the drivers feet, there is a panel. Remove it to get access to the relay panel (just a couple of torx screws, no breakable clips as far as I can remember). Remove the "double size" relay (probably marked 210-211). Put a wire between the terminals 50E and 50F. This will hotwire the immobilizer and make sure that it always activates when turning the key.

Drive around with the wire in place instead of the relay for a while to see if this helps. If it does you'll know that the problem is related to the alarm system. Keep in mind that you will be without alarm and therefore probably also without remote central locking while doing this.
Make sure that the wire is connected firmly enough so it doesn't come loose. You can also put a fuse on it if it makes you sleep better at night ;)

Good luck!

This could be caused by any number of defective components, it could be a defective eject drive belt or a part is worn in the very complicated ejection and loading mechanism, as far as repair goes, Ford does not sell parts to the public, you must send the radio into a electronics repair center that is approved by Ford, contact your local Ford or Lincoln dealer for a location and phone number locally, if you have an extended warranty this is a covered part in almost all policies, consult your dealer for repair details.
Radio removal instructions
Locate the seam between the dashboard and the bezel that goes around the stereo. Use your hands to pull the bezel off of the dashboard at that seam to free the clips that hold it in place. Unplug any wiring to the bezel/trim plate and then remove it from the car
Unbolt the four bolts along the sides of the stereo using the 1/4-inch ratchet and socket.
Carefully pull the deck out of the dash with your hands, making sure not to pull it too far and catch the wiring. Reach around to the back of the deck and unplug the antenna lead and wiring. Remove the stereo from the car.

SOURCE: 2004 GMC Sierra won't shift in and out of

The common issue on this year and model is the selector switch for the 4 wheel drive. These tend to go bad and cause these sypmtoms, the other cause is the transfer case switch located on the transfer case. Check all the vacuum line for any loose connections or leaks as this can cuase this as well. From the description your giving me on what you did to fix the issue want me to lean towards the transfer case switch but the dash butttons could still be causing this. these both need to be eleminated.

SOURCE: 2009 Impala won't start. First message

turn on your car and remove the ground cable from the battery, if the car dies it's time for a new alternator, if not take your battery in to be checked. The other message(traction control) may be just due to a faulty battery/alternator.

Check all the fuses (under hood and inside drivers door) to make sure none have blown. I checked with a test light. If you don't find any blown fuses try disconnecting the battery (neg) cable for about a minute. Disconnecting the battery worked for my 05' Tahoe.

TPM is alarming every 30 seconds since the weather went cold. How do I silence the alarm..... I know how to reset the TPM but that doesn't work.

Cold weather causes air to condense and air pressure to be reduced, causing your tires to read low pressure to the TPM. Check and fill all your tires to your recommended vehicle inflation pressure, to stop the TPM from alarming you every 30 seconds.

Left front Tire Pressure Low Warning , Tire Pressure Good Scroll Though Menu and Indication on Dash reads 1 psi is it the wheel sensor or does the sysytem have a nother fault or require recalibrated

Have you rotated tire positions? Anyway, if all tires seem to be physically stable, give it a few more runs and another mileage. The 1 psi reading should increase and improve significantly. If not, it is best to have your tires recalibrated, from there you can easily determine if that sensor is at fault or not.

My service tire monitor came on.what does that mean

That means a sensor has detected either a low pressure situation in one or more of your tires or it is time to replace your tires. In any case, you need to bring your vehicle to a shop, preferrably a tire specialist shop, and have them look at it.

On a 05' tahoe the bottom of the glove box area is different than the earlier years (00'01'02') and would like to get a better answer to where the cabin air filters are. Please help.

The dashes are the same.
The cabin air filters do not exsist on a 2005 tahoe. Gm didn't put them in after the 2003 year model in the trucks and suv's.
