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.

I have a 2009 Jeep Liberty Unlimited. All my dash warning lights came on, wipers start wiping, head lights dim, all my gauges shut off, radio comes on and off but the vehicle continues driving fine.

I suggest you try one of those instant download manuals. My nephew bought one for me when my car broke and we could fix it all by ourselves with the manual costing $10. This website reliable-store.com is very good for this.
?Try it.

My tahoe is completely dead the battery and alternator tested good. prior to it dying the lights and the a/c would occasionally glitch out.


Test your positive and negative cables for continuity. Sounds like you have a cable not doing the job. Also be sure to check connection is secure

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

1996 chevy suburban 5.7 liter. Truck ran fine day before sat overnight went out to start and had the typical signs of dead battery. Tried to jump start, with no results the battery is completly dead also...


My 1999 likes to get angry with it's anti theft system. With the key in the ignition cycle the power locks three to four times,that will normally reset mine and let me start it again. As for the battery going dead, mine has the rear doors instead of the tailgate. The rear door light switch went bad and left the rear cargo light on and that kept draining my battery untill I found it... Good luck, hope.i have helped some.

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

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 )

DO THIS AND GIVE ME THE CODE YOU GET AND I WILL GET U UNLOCK CODE
