Question about 1998 Chevrolet Tahoe

1998 Chevy Tahoe reverse lights stay on with engine off

Today, while driving, my reverse lights came on at some point and woundn't shut off, even when the engine was turned off. They're on all the time now, weather I'm driving forward or not, engine on or off. I can't disconnect the battery to turn them off because it just sets off the alarm system.

    Problem solved.... it wasn't the keyless entry. It turned out to be a cracked plug end for the trailer hitch. The hitch gets it's power directly from the battery so when the crack let water into the plug, it caused a short. The short was looking for a way to ground and that caused the back up lights to stay on. It took a frustrating few hours to find but was a simple fix in the end.

What causes 1996 Dodge Neon SOHC automatic transmission to delay or slip shifts?


that is a hum dinger, largest ever posted, in one shot.
very good.!
one word , the transmission slips. (never drive a slipping tranny)
overheat indicator.! that is key.
many newer cars will change the transmission shifting any time
the engine over heats.
and overheat wins over transmission , every time.
if the engine burns up, what good is any transmission.? nada.

solve overheat first.

slip or flare.
is when the engine RPM rises fast and the car dont go faster.
SLIPS.
and slipping burns up trannyclutchs and increases the damage. inside the transmission, dont do that. dont allow it,
park it and fix it.

on some tranny there is a temperature sensor that the TCM
watches and changes shift patterns based on AFT fluid temps.
and if the ATF fluid gets too hot , it takes actions. to keep the tranny from harm.

why not get a scan too and see what DTC errors there are..

Start by getting the DTCs diagnostic trouble codes as they will point you in the right direction. You may have some blockage in the vent tube or the vent solenoid fail but really what good is guessing when you can simply get the trouble codes and have a starting point.

you need to replace the relay for the headlights located in the fuse box in the engine compartment near the battery. the headlights you see when you shut off the others are likely your day time running lights
