Question about 2008 Chevrolet Tahoe Hybrid

1 Answer

I just bought a 2008 Tahoe Hybrid with 96,000 miles on it. I had the 12 volt battery replaced and hooked up to my 5000# snowmobile trailer, as I was towing on the highway a message appeared in the dash that said "Service Hybrid System". After disconnecting the trailer and driving it around I could not duplicate the message. What's going on?

Also try They have a great website with lots of info. With the tow package, there should be a plug under the dash... far left above the emerg. brake petal. The harness that plugs into it should have came with the truck, or you can order one to fit it. Did thew truck come with a 7 pin plug on the back? If not you can order one from the above mentioned site. They also have the wiring colors.

A battery can read 12 volts yet be weak in cold cranking amps, try a jumpstart and if that works have your battery load tested. Im betting your gonna find the battery fails the load test, meaning it needs to be replaced..

SOURCE: an orange wrench symbol has

Doing some checking this is an issue with the HV battery and its normal operating temperature range where the temperature range is exceeded or an issue with the HVBT climate control system having a failure. You will need to take this to the dealer and have them run codes and to look at the temperature blend door actuator as well.

You may need to replace your battery and or replace the fuses inside of the truck. If that is not the problem, your car may be haunted. Just kidding!

Trailer wiring 2008 Trailblazer SS

Sounds like the vehicle came with towing package. There should be 2 large wires and a smaller one. The blue "should" be trailer brake feed. The other large wire, usually the black, would be 12 volt power for trailer interior lights and battery charge. The red should be a smaller wire and it is the back up light wiring to the trailer. Most trailers don't use this wire, except for brake lock out on some boat trailers with hydraulic brakes. Also see All of this is used for5, 7, or 6 pin plugs.

84 CK TRK, 2500, 5.7L 55,000 miles have replaced alternator twice - battery still reads 12 volts. Trickle charge on battery OK and engine starts up OK - terminal 1 on alternator wire (brown) reads 2.4volts...

On some of the older style GM's you can take that brown wire and cut it and take the end leading from the alternator and hook it directly to the hot terminal on the alternator and just leave it hooked up and it will work. But I have ran into the occasional problem where leaving it hooked up will drain the battery when the vehicle isn't running. Hope this helps..
