Question about 2007 Chevrolet Tahoe

4 Answers

2007 Chevy Tahoe.. So the service light came on about 2 days ago and I was going to get it checked out on my day off but today the "traction control" light came on as I got off the fwy then the "stabilitrak" light came on and check engine light kept blinking while my car was shaking as if it was overheating... I have no idea what is going on but now I'm scared to even move it.. Anybody know what this means? and how much does it cost to fix? also, can I still drive the car?

If the check engine light is flashing it means that a catalytic converter damaging misfire is happening ! I been working for GM dealerships for thirty years , Chevy , Cadillac , Pontiac , GMC , Buick ! If you have codes checked P0300 to P0308 . depending on engine , V-6 or V-8 . And a basic code reader won't read codes in the ABS - stabilitrak - traction control. You need a up scale scan tool .With the engine misfiring your dumping raw fuel into the exhaust system an catalytic converter .The fuel will ignite in the Cat an it will have a melt down . You don't want to have to by one of these , or maybe two ! Check Engine Light Flashing Misfire Diagnosis by Autolite Spark Plugs

Traction control will cut the power to your engine if it comes on, what the cause is could be a dozen different things. PS... Auto Zone will read your codes for free.

Sounds like One of your abs sensors is out,,, the auto is using the brakes ,,,ABS automatic braking system,,,to compinsate for the sensor not reading making it shutter and act crazy,,,,,,,try pushing the traction button to let you drive it,,, it may work,,,its in the dash center low looks like a little car with tire marks or a t in a triangle. You will have to carry to a shop to repair,,, unless you want to tackle it yourself,, hope this helps

No one knows what anything means, until you check for codes

No one would have any idea what anything costs, as you don't
have any idea of any actual problem & repair costs only come
from the merchant you choose to deal with

There is no price, until you pay for diagnostic & testing, to find a problem & come up with a solution

I wouldn't have driven it 2 days ago
I would have checked for codes first

You can get an inexpensive code reader at Advanced Auto
for about $60.00 or on Amazon, etc

SOURCE: 2007 Chevy Silverado when my check engine light

It's a safety feature. For example, if there is no oil pressure when you start the engine, you could not see that unless you were in the car and could spin a bearing or seize the engine by starting it remotely and letting it run unattended. So when the check engine light is on, there is something not working properly with the engine/engine management system and it wants you in the car where you can see the guages and turn the engine off immediately if there's a serious problem.

SOURCE: My 2008 Equinox's traction control

The traction control light usually goes on when a wheel speed sensor is not sending valid speed signals to the traction control module, or the module itself is bad.

Modules can cost hundreds of dollars, or the wheel hub assemblies replaced to rectify a basd wheel speed sensor can also cost in the hundreds of dollars, unfortunately.

If it jumps a little in the snow, and the traction control light was off (indicating it was working correctly at the time), I wouldn't worry too much about it, as the traction control may be working properly at that time.

Was the jumping alarming making the car 'buck?'

The wheels may have been getting traction intermittently by hitting gravel or the road that didn't have snow and ice on it. This is normal.

However, if the bucking continues, I would have it checked out at the dealer if feasible.

Hope this helps and good luck on this repair.

Abslight stays on. How to fix? This is a2007trailblazer?


First you need to have EBCM - electronic brake control module check for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble code's . If the light is on there is a code stored . I think most part stores can do this and for free . After you find out what code is stored , looking up that code in service repair information for diagnostic trouble shooting chart would be next step . There are a few codes too.
DTC C0035 or C0040
DTC C0045 or C0050
DTC C0110
DTC C0131
DTC C0161
DTC C0186
DTC C0196
DTC C0201
DTC C0240
DTC C0241 or P0856
DTC C0244 or P1689
DTC C0245
DTC C0283
DTC C0287
DTC C0290 or C0292
DTC C0455
DTC C0550
DTC C0558

Find the code do the diagnostic's , fix the problem , wiring issue's , a sensor , bad module ,what ever it is . The light will go out then . Here is a sample of code discription .
• DTC C0035 Left Front Wheel Speed Sensor Circuit
• DTC C0040 Right Front Wheel Speed Sensor Circuit

Changed rear air ride shocks on 2007 tahoe have abs,service stable track ,service traction control light on how can I reset them


Hi Ron,
Check to see if the speed sensor came off at either of the back wheels,That would turn on the ABS light,Which would then disable the traction control. The ABS will reset itself when it sees no problem.

Sounds like you may have disconnected or damaged one or both of the rear wheel speed sensors. Inspect the wiring going to the rear hub assembly, just a two wire harness.

The service engine soon light would have nothing to do with the oil or the coolant. There are many things that can cause the SES to come on, and some of them will cause the traction off light (TRAC OFF) or similar to come on because the traction has been dissabled. You will need to have the check engine light codes scanned. There will be trouble codes stored in the computer. From there the problem would need to be diagnosed, problem repaired, then codes cleared. Here is site with a list of some typical trouvble codes......
