Check the fuse, first. The reverse light switch on/in the transmission may also be bad. One of the bulbs in the back may have shorted out and blown the fuse. These are the most common causes. Look for a cut/broken or shorted lead harness "hot" wire going to the backup lights under the vehicle. The other thing to check are the grounds. In high humidity areas and places that use salt on the roads in winter, wiring can be attacked by the corrosive salt and moisture, eating away the terminals and wiring over time. Hope this helps...

My tahoe started making a loud noise while driving abs and traction light turn on and reverse dont want to work?

I thank you have a failed transmission. Take it to a ****** repair shop and have them do a look at it, it will be free at most shops. You must get the problem diagnosed before any repairs are done.

My 97 tahoe will not go into reverse but good in all forward gears

Inside this type of transmission reverse is applied with a special clutch band, that band is usually the first thing to wear out in any automatic transmission, no reverse is a very common failure and I see it often on FixYa, the only solution is to overhaul the transmission, since replacing the reverse band requires the transmission be completely disassembled.

Check all the fuses. Could be a bad relay for the head lights.

Often when transmissions start to go reverse is the fist to go. Could be the transfer case but I doubt it. Unless you're seriously mechanically inclined I would recommend seeking out a good transmission repair shop and seeing what they think.

!997 Tahoe, the right rear turn and brake lights dont work.

If you live in an area of temperate weather, you may have some corrosion that has caused you to lose the ground contact there.  That and a fuse that services those lights are about the only things that could cause all three to fail.
