Question about 1998 Chevrolet Tahoe

1 Answer

Radio locked on 98 Tahoe

We left the interior light on and the vehicle sat for about three days before we went to drive it aqain and the battery was drained. When we got it started we had a radio loc feature enabled and since we bought the vehicle used, we do not know the code that was used before. I followed the steps posted on here from a previous posting and got the numbers 532 from pushing 2/3 & 540 from pushing AM/FM so 532-540. Any help would greatly be appreciated.
Thank You.

You should try removing the battery in the radio. The radio should reset and their should be no lock on the radio.

Seems to be a complete electrical failure


Always start at least 80% of all vehicle checking with
the battery first

Never go by how many years or miles are on something

If some module failed to time out, your battery goes dead in,
as you said, about 3 days & check if you left the interior lights on

Battery light on after new alternator


there are three wires on the alternator. one is a feedback voltage that switches on the alternator via the internal voltage regulator..there is an 18 gauge fusible link that runs from that wire to the battery to sense the voltage. they are fuses,but look like a regular piece of wire,they blow quite often,get the wiring diagram for the vehicle

While driving, the interior lights and locks went off and on


Check Body Control Module OF Vehicle. This Module Acts As A Switchboard commanding on or off of what ever function inside of vehicle you turn on, wipers, blinkes interior lights etc, possible ground wire to or from control module or possibly bad module!

When I turn the key off, it is like disconnecting the battery.


Does the car have a battery kill switch installed with its alarm system? It sounds as though when you cut off the key it engages the kill switch which removes power from the vehicle when the key is removed and the alarm is tripped.

Radio lock


1. Turn the ignition ON (The radio displays "LOC").
2. Press and hold presets buttons 2 & 3 or 1 & 4 for approximately 10 seconds.
The radio display changes from "LOC" to a three-digit number. Write this number down. If you have a Saturn or GEO, see note below and skip to step 5.
Don’t take long, fifteen seconds max before the next step
3. Press the AM/FM button. The radio display changes to another three-digit number. Write this number to the right of the first one.
4. You now have a six-digit number, the first three digits are from STEP 2 and the last three digits are from STEP 3, so you will have a number like this ( 212 - 212 )
