Hi! Please try this... Open the hood and disconnect the positive battery connector then let it sit for atleast 5mins. to reset the system and this may get rid of the problem. Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa!

1999 Tahoe Truck has little power, will only go 20 mph


It is in the limp power mode because of a failure in the sensor system. Run fault codes and replace any thing found faulty.

My 1995 chevy tahoe runs good until my check gages light comes on


unfortunately on this type of service (internet) it is hard to deterine what is causing the check lamp to come on.........but the reason it is running bad is a thing called "limp home" mode. previuosly, if cars had a fault that was serious enough, the computer would shut the car down, having it to be towed
these days the limp home mode was established, because if the car was driven with the fault, then it would cause excessive damage.

my advice would be to take it to a chevy dealership and get them to diagnose ONLY, then come back and we will share what we can do with it

Accelaration loss of power


I'd have a fuel pressure test done to be sure, it isn't fuel related again. Takes 5 or 10 minutes so cost should be minimal. The other thing that comes to mind is a plugged exhaust. (catalytic converter) Quite possible on a 10yr.old vehicle.

1997 isuzu wizard mu check light


Code 24 is a vehicle speed signal sensor fault, the sensor most likely does not provide a useable signal until about 25 MPH, when the computer doesn't see any signal after that speed it turns on the light. Make sense?
