Question about 2002 Chevrolet Tahoe

1 Answer

My automatic door locks have stopped working and service department claims my fuse block has gone bad. They claim this is a $516 repair. My vehicle is a 2002 Tahoe with over 110,000 miles and I am leary of spending that much money on her. Is this a repair that the average DIYer can handle or should I leave it to the pros?

Something doesn't sound right. Your "fuse block" being bad is fishy. If it was bad more problems would exist than just your auto door locks not working. Your Tahoe more than likely has a main distribution block under the hood on the same side as the battery. That is were the fuses and realys are located. You can use your owners manual to locate this and it will also show you what each fuse is for. I suggest you go to a local parts store and purchase a 12 volt test light and start checking your fuses.

What agency handles GM dealership fraud?


I would probably start with Buick's website - - you can email or call for customer service. They should be able to take the complaint or direct you to that department.
The phone number is 1-800-521-7300. There are other numbers at the GM website too.

My 1998 nissan pathfinder auto door lock clicks when im driving and locks automatically when I unlock the truck


That sounds like a possible bad door lock switch to me. I have also seen defective door lock control modules cause the same symptoms. These things can also cause your battery to drain because it is probably also doing this when the vehicle is shut off. The power lock solenoids in the doors will also bedestroyed if it is allowed to continue.

If you cannot get it diagnosed and repaired right away, I recommend unplugging your door lock control module to prevent furter damage to the vehicle. Yours is located under the dash next to the fuse block. (See picture)

Retailers are to ensure that these customers understand that shuttle service or some other form of courtesy transportation is available and will be provided at no charge. Dealers should refer to the General Motors Service Policies and Procedures Manual for Courtesy Transportation guidelines.

Hi,

There are already couple of recalls for the same.

Read

January 2008

Dealer Service Instructions for:
Customer Satisfaction Notification G41
Reprogram PTCM and Install Luggage Compartment
Warning Tag


Effective immediately Rapid Response Transmittal (RRT) 07-040 is cancelled
and all repairs on involved vehicles are to be performed according to this
notification. Those vehicles that have already had this repair performed, as determined by our warranty records, have been excluded from this notification.



Models

2008 (JS) Chrysler Sebring Convertible
NOTE : This notification applies only to the above vehicles built from August 31, 2007 through September 28, 2007 (MDH 083100 through 092821).


IMPORTANT : Some of the involved vehicles may be in dealer vehicle inventory. Dealers should complete this repair on these vehicles before retail delivery. Dealers should also perform this repair on vehicles in for service. Involved vehicles can be determined by using the VIP inquiry process.



Subject
The Power Top Control Module (PTCM) software on about 1,200 of the above
vehicles may deform the convertible top header motor gear(s) under certain
operating conditions. In addition, storing objects forward of the trunk cargo shield can damage the convertible top mechanism if the top is lowered. Either condition can cause the convertible top to become inoperative.



Repair

The Power Top Control Module must be reprogrammed and a luggage compartment warning tag must be installed.

Special Tools

Completion Reporting and Reimbursement
Claims for vehicles that have been serviced must be submitted on the
DealerCONNECT Claim Entry Screen located on the Service tab. Claims
submitted will be used by Chrysler to record Customer Satisfaction Notification service completions and provide dealer payments.

Use the labor operation number and time allowance shown.

Dealer Notification

All dealers will receive one copy of this dealer notification letter by mail. To view this notification on DealerCONNECT, select "Global Recall System" on the Service tab, then click on the description of this notification.

All involved vehicles have been entered into the DealerCONNECT Global Recall System (GRS) and Vehicle Information Plus (VIP) for dealer inquiry as needed.
GRS provides involved dealers with an updated VIN list of their incomplete
vehicles. The owner's name, address and phone number are listed if known.
Completed vehicles are removed from GRS within several days of repair claim submission.



To use this system, click on the "Service" tab and then click on "Global Recall System." Your dealer's VIN list for each recall displayed can be sorted by: those vehicles that were unsold at recall launch, those with a phone number, city, zip code, or VIN sequence.
Dealers should perform this repair on all unsold vehicles before retail
delivery. Dealers should also use the VIN list to follow up with all owners to schedule appointments for this repair.

2005 colorado pulled fuse for power locks, to stop automatic locks. drivers window and door locks quit working. reinstalled fuse but didn"t start working again.????. fuse is ok drivers window and locks...


This is a common problem, there is either a pinched wire in the harness that is in the door jam or your fuse block is shot, there is a gm service bulletin out on this, I would call your local dealership to find out if it is covered.

2004 Jaguar x type electric radiator fans not operating


check out with your dealer as you might have a recall to fix this problem.
XT303-S932
X-TYPE
DATE 01/03
MODEL
2002-03 MY
X-TYPE
VIN
C00294-C91719
Overheating - Cooling Fans Inoperative - Replace Module Prior To Retailing - Service Action S932
This Service Action Applies to Vehicles That Have Not Been Retailed
Issue:
The cooling fan module on X-TYPE vehicles may fail under certain circumstances. There are various root causes but the design and quality of the printed circuit board within the cooling fan module are the most significant. The NAND gate used in the circuit is detective causing multiple failure modes, this can result in high engine temperature and overheating due to the cooling fans not operating.
A change has been implemented in production from VIN C91720. On these vehicles a 'Philips' printed circuit board has been used that has a modified voltage spike protection strategy.
Action:
To prevent customers from experiencing this issue, install the latest specification cooling fan module on 2002-03 MY X-TYPE vehicles within the above VIN range that have not been retailed.
PROCEDURE
1. Install new cooling fan module (see Workshop Manual, JTIS CD ROM, section: 303-03, SRO 26.25.38).
Parts Information
Warranty Information:
Warranty claims should be submitted quoting S932 in place of the warranty fault code together with SRO: 26.25.38 and the relevant part number. This will result in a labor time allowance of 0.8 hours to replace the cooling fan module and payment for the part used. Should the vehicle be brought back into the workshop for this action alone to be undertaken, an additional labor time allowance of 0.1 hours can be claimed quoting SRO: 10.10.10 for drive in/drive out.
Warranty claims should be submitted quoting the information found in the table. This will result in payment of the stated time and, where applicable, parts/miscellaneous expense codes.
The options that allow for drive in/drive out may only be claimed when the vehicle has been brought in to the workshop for this action alone to be undertaken.
The SROs and parts items listed above have been included for information only, there will be no requirement to enter the parts or SROs onto the claim.
NOTE: Always perform a DDW claim search first to determine whether this service action has been performed on this vehicle. The warranty selection under the vehicle inquiry will give a listing of all claims against the vehicle. If this service action number appears in the program code field, do not perform this service action.

This is a problem with the Body Control Module (BCM), the dealer can run a test on it to determine if it is the problem for sure.
FixYa.com claims they have factory repair manuals, they have nothing of the sort, this is not to say some experts may have manuals, we do, but we work from home and in most cases have a small library. Experts are not employed by FixYa.com, we help free of charge as much as we can with the general automotive knowledge we have learned while working as auto technicians, specific test values, repair procedures and illustrations are unique to each car line, these are not in most cases available to us. Thanks for using FixYa!
