Have there been any recalls for this vehicle on the door locks?

You need to call the factory customer service number and they will be able to tell you. Remember recalls are for safety related repairs, other issues are addressed in what are called Factory Service Bulletins or TSB's for short, they are not free repairs..

Symptoms are one or all of the following; ABS Light On, Security Light On, Multiple Indicators On in the IPC, Heated Seats inoperative, Drivers and/or Passengers Door Window(s), Lock(s) and Mirror(s) are Inoperative. This concern can be intermittent and at times difficult to diagnosis yet communication is not always lost with the Tech 2. This concern when present, can be cleared by cycling the ignition to the "OFF" position, pause for a moment, then restart the vehicle. This could be the result of a module software concern and only applies to vehicles equipped with Memory seats (AAB), Heated seats (KA1), Electric Pedals (JF4) or a combination of them<a href=""

An updated calibration was released for this concern. This calibration only applies to vehicles equipped with Memory seats (AAB), Heated seats (KA1), Electric Pedals (JF4) or a combination of them. The software was released on Monday February 20th 2006 through "TIS-2-WEB". It will be necessary to reprogram the Drivers Door Module (DDM), Passenger Door Module (PDM) and Drivers Seat Module (DSM).
1st - Reprogram the Drivers Door Module (DDM). Use SPS programing procedures and select the calibration that states
New software to address intermittent loss of power mirror, power window, and heated seat functionality which may be temporarily corrected by cycling the ignition".
2nd - Reprogram the Passenger Door Module (PDM). Use SPS programing procedures and select the calibration that states

"New software to address DSM no communication issue during factory testing
Note: Prior to programming the Drivers Seat Module, make sure the LGM/DSM fuse is installed. This will only be a concern if TIS had a message advising to remove LGM/DSM fuse for programming the Drivers or Passengers door module.
If there are programming concerns, the TIS version numbers are listed below. Verify your TIS version numbers as necessary

Please follow this diagnostic or repair process thoroughly and complete each step. If the condition exhibited is resolved without completing every step, the remaining steps do not need to be performed

GM bulletins are intended for use by professional technicians, NOT a "do-it-yourselfer". They are written to inform these technicians of conditions that may occur on some vehicles, or to provide information that could assist in the proper service of a vehicle. Properly trained technicians have the equipment, tools, safety instructions, and know-how to do a job properly and safely. If a condition is described, DO NOT assume that the bulletin applies to your vehicle, or that your vehicle will have that condition. See your GM dealer for information on whether your vehicle may benefit from the information
mechanic110 : Basically the vehicle control module needs to be updated by a GM dealer or an independant shop that has the capabilities of doing this.
It appears to be a technical issue but not a recall.

My 2004 chevy tahoe has a broken speedometer why

This was a known problem on this edition of GM SUV's and pick ups. GM even issued a service bulletin on it at one point. I had a 2004 Chevy P/U with the issue and GM did replace the gauge cluster under warranty. Search google for "Speedometer Service Bulletins" for your year and model. I doubt if you'll get it replaced for free after all these years but at least you'll know what you're dealing with.

Why does my heater only blow hot air?

if only blows hot from defrost location only, then there is a vaccum leak from intake manifold to the selector switch. or the vaccum selector switch is defective. if it is a electric selector switch then the mode door is broken, common issue. when the truck if first started, is there a repetive clicking noise? if so then it would be the mode door being broken, warrenting having to remove the dash and recovering of the air conditioning refridgerent, or freon, r-12, or r-134a as this year is R-134a, draining coolant as heatercore needs removed, and removing the entire heating and airconditioning unit, located behind dash on passanger side, disasembling and replacing door. if clicking noise is pressent and time and money, and certified air conditioning mechanic not available, then finding the mode door actuator, or electric motor that turns the door, and unplugging it will cause the noise to stop, but forever have no airconditioning, as default location is defrost. if able to select from defrost to panel or floor location but heat only, then blend door is broke. i believe mode and blend door are same part number, but might not.
also check for recalls and tsb's, or technical service bullitions, as might help fix it. recalls are free, and tsb's are only to help you diagnose the problem, and you would have to pay to have fixed or fix yourself, but having to evacuate and recharge air conditioning system and haveing to have the special tools to remove ac lines it may be a job best suited for a professional.
