Traction Control. Have your transmission checked. Something isn't working correctly.

The TC light automatically comes on

What's the "TC" sign? Guessing from the rest of your question, it sounds like your throttle body is dirty. try to clean it with throttle body cleaner & see if that helps.

Trac light is comin on what does this mean

The car is OK. If you have the traction control (TC) warning pop up it means there is a fault in the traction control system . The traction control on the car will now be disabled.

The most likley cause is a failed or faulty wheel sensor. These are the sensors which detect if a wheel is losing traction and the TC system will apply braking multiple times to slow the wheel speed to retain grip.

It is a good safety feature but you can still drive your car around without the TC system operating. There should be a TC switch on your model to turn the TC on and off manually. When switched off manually, a TC off message should pop up on the dash.

No you will not "harm" the vehicle.

1. The ABS fault light will mean that the anti - lock braking facility is not working. However the conventional braking system will continue to operate. Bear in mind that you now have no system that prevents you from locking up your brakes so it is all down to the driver.

2. Traction control (TC) warning. The TC function will not be working or not working as programmed. There should be a TC on/off switch or button in the vehicle. Make sure you manually disable the TC by switching the TC OFF until the problem is identified and rectified.
TC is a useful driver aid, especially in slippery road surface conditions, so take extra precautions when driving without it.

Even in good conditions the Tahoe is not a vehicle that handles well.

3. You should get the vehicle checked for the ABS and TC problem. It may only be some faulty sensors that require replacing but a proper diagnosis needs to be made.

It's the tire pressure warning light, you need to check your tire pressure on all of your tires.
