There has been a recall for some specific suv's made by general motors (chevy, gmc, cadillac, etc.). They involve the tachometer (speed, oil, gas gauges) that are faulty.
go here for information about the recall.

SOURCE: i am trying to remove my fuel tank from a 96 chevy suburban and replace the fuel pump

ok i'm going to guess that you have a gasoline engine with a side tank like in a pickup truck. if you have a diesel let me know, things might be a little different. here's the step by step for a gas side tank. before you start, disconnect the battery negative cable.
1. drain the fuel from the tank (they don't tell you how, just get as much out as you can)
2.raise and safely support vehicle (get it high enough that you can get under it to work on it)
3.loosen the fuel neck hose at fuel neck and disconnect filler neck from tank
4.support tank and remove tank support straps and insulator strips
5.remove frame mounted bracket
6.lower fuel tank shield
7.lower fuel tank enough to gain access to fuel and electrical connections
8.disconnect fuel feed and vapor hoses
9.disconnect electrical connectors
10.remove fuel sender assembly and seal ring
now to install new tank
1.install NEW seal ring and install sender
2.raise tank enough to connect fuel feed /vapor hoses and electrical connector
3.raise tank fully
4.install fuel tank shield
5.connect fuel tank filler neck and tighten clamp
CAUTION tighten fuel strap fasteners in steps, alternating between straps, until proper torque is reached. failure to properly follow this step can cause bottom of tank to deform. fuel gauge may read improper level if this occurs
6.install fuel tank brackets and insulator strips
torque nuts to 115 in-lbs
7.install fuel tank filler cap
8.connect battery negative cable
9.turn ignition switch off and on and check for leaks
it's pretty much the same for rear tank, just different location, may have off-road shield in back and torque spec is 47 ft-lbs, not 115 in-lbs. you still have to alternate when you torque straps or you risk deforming tank. hope that helps

SOURCE: where to find diagram for wiring harness for 85

You can check out your local auto parts store for a Haynes or Clymer repair manual. I know that AutoZone, O'Reilly's, and Advance Auto Parts all carry these manuals at a cost of $20-$25. They contain the wiring diagrams for the major electrical systems. Unfortunately that's probably going to be one of the few sources for a vehicle that old. I happen to own an 85 Chevy Silverado 1/2 ton. What type of problem are you experiencing? Perhaps I could assist you.

Why would my 96 chevy suburban start and run fine, then randomly not start?


It's not your alarm,it's your ignition switch which is about 250.00 then your truck will start fine. I chased that same issue around for two years and finally changed out the ignition switch not the key assembly but the wiring harness in the steering column.

You may need a shop to look at it, or get a used shop manual from Ebay to get the necessary wiring diagrams. The problems could be related, such as the key switch or the main wiring harness.

96 Chevy Suburban going up hill the battery light starts flashing and the battery gauge drops. As soon as you level off it all goes back to normal. Have already changed battery, alternator and a wire


Wow, thats pretty weird.
The only thing that comes to mind is a bad connection in the harness somewhere that would be affected by engine torque.
Can you make it happen if you power-brake the engine ?

96 dodge intrepid brake lamps do not turn off. already replaced brake lamp switch. lights stay on even after removing fuse. please help


Hi,
Hmmm... sounds like a power( live line ) melted the insulation and fused together w/ the brake line, thus it powers up your brake light.

Check your rear brake wire harness leading to the front connection main harness., if the harness are covered w/ plastic insulation, cut the insulation and look for a wire that melted and fused together.
If you found the wire, seperate it and put some insulator tape to prevent power line shorting.
The power line usually colored RED.
Hope that helps!
