Just because the gauges light up doesn't mean the battery is fine. It could be weak, or the battery cables could be worn out. After that, the starter could also be shot.

01 tahoe. started ran great drove 18 miles to gas station shut vehicle off after pumping gas etc approx 10 min later won't start won't even crank. all accessory lights bell etc working all gauges turn...


I used to own an '02 Tahoe.
Have you checked the oil? Is your dip stick bone dry? I've only had this happen to me on one vehicle in the past and the engine was out of oil and my engine had seized. Hopefully it isn't that.

Side note: Have you noticed that most Chevy Tahoes on the road look like they are winking at you? Seems like everyone ALWAYS had one fog/running light out under a headlight. I laugh when I see one coming my way.. I say, that's got to be a Chevy. Something is wrong with their electrical system to cause such a widespread failure.

What is the fix for my 2003 Chevy Tahoe with the gauges not working till I pull the pic/dic fuse and then put it back in.


IS this a one time issue? IF so when the battery dies and is jump started, the voltages can be spiked or sag and this causes issues with the electronics in the boards. When you pull the fuse and put it back you are resetting it and not letting drop or sag or spikes happen. If the issue keeps happening then you need to look at for issues with bad connections on the boards or the BCM

My 1997 chevy tahoe does not start right away.


Sounds like a starter problem, suggest you get it checked at your local trusted mechanic the next time it starts... If the starter is your problem it wont start for many more times.

1999 chevy tahoe check guages light


it sounds like the speed sensor is faulty,but you should have it checked in case it is an output or input sensor too.whats happening is, since the computer has no eyes it totaly depends on sensors to know what is happening,if it sees no speed it won't up shift the transmission because it thinks your sitting still.

1999 Chevy Tahoe won't Start. Motor will not turn over.


I'm assuming that by turning over, you mean that the engine fails to turn with the starter . Check your battery for 12v and make sure all connections are clean and secure. If battery has less than 12v charge it and check the charging system after re-starting. Lights and radio do not pull the same amperage as the starter and may not tell you much about battery condition. If you have full battery voltage, check the starter for 12v at the battery connection and the small (trigger wire) for 12v with the key turned to start position. If you have both, likely starter has failed.

My 2003 chevy tahoe, died while i was driving home. when i tried to start it, nothing happens. it doesnt try to crank or turn over, nothing happens, now my ABS and battery light is on.


OK if only 4 months old, charge it with an external battery charger. Once vehicle is running the quick and still most valid test I make is:
Running, with no accessories on, charge volts on volt meter (not dash gauge) should read between 12.9 &14volts. Turn all accessories and headlights on high beam. Volts should not read below 12.5v at idle and should not creep lower after running at any time, even after ten or fifteen minutes. If voltaqge is not as specified alternator has failed and needs replacement.

Check that the battery cable ends (where the wire goes into the clamp) are clean with no corrosion, and that the other end of those cables are securely connected - especially where the ground cable connects. Also check any ground strap that connects the engine with the frame or body.
