My 2003 Chevy Tahoe has traction control. I noticed this winter when i was on some ice that the traction control light stated that traction control was activated but i could hear grinding and it did not...

It is not supposed to. The traction control gives power to opposing wheels and applies brakes in milliseconds to prevent total loss of control of the car. The computer immediately takes over and prevents 4wd that could send the car into a worse skid.. You are talking about ice which is very different from snow where traction is concerned. The grinding you hear could have been the anti-lock system being activated.

I have a few99 gmt jimmy with the automatic 4x4 buttons. I can't get it out of 4x4. Please help

Well from experience 99%. Of the time its not the actuator if it shifts into 4 lo and back to 4 hi. The book really sucks at this diagnosis. And if lights on buttons blink for 2 hi for a bit then stay in 4wd then u have to listen very carefully. When shifting from 4 hi. To 4 low the whine or growling noise from motor is heard. If, when shifting from 4 hi to 2wd this motor noise is heard, then actoator or wiring is the issue. If the time while 2wd light is blinking, ie: its trying to shift, no noise from motor or actuator is heard, then shift module has a burnt output. Now. Before replacing any of the components, if you have a schematic of this system, you would be confused on how any of it elworks even if you are a seasoned professional. I wouldn\'t bother 2 much with it as long as you theory inspect Evey millimeter of all the wires from actuator connector (on transfercase) to where it goes through metal and enters occupant compartment. If all wires look good. Lights in all 3, or 4 if u were lucky in neutral which means error, of the lights work, and if requested position is depressed on switch and motor tries to turn or does and clynks are heard , then actuator position switch is stuck and actuator is needing replaced, as not a serviceable assesembly, and I haven\'t had the ability to tear one apart. But if all lights work and when the selected switch button , example 4 WD, 2 WD or 4 lo, and no motor noise like heard when other shift works, them module is to blame. Now, I am a master mechanic with most experience at a gm dealership, I have fought with this system multiple times, and once I employed this diagnosis it has never failed me again. And the stack of 4wd shift modules in my bottom toolbox dawyer. Most times if won\'t shit at all night be actuator but not likely, 95% of the time when this issue rolled through dealership, it took a module to fix it.

4 wheel drive stopped working

My 95, years back went out under warranty. Had it replaced by the dealer and it went out again the next winter. It was replaced again under warranty. I was told by the service manager that the actuator needs to be install a certain way or they will fail again. You might try checking with a Chevy dealer or on a forum for more answers.

My 95 chevy tahoe has new tranny shifts fine when its cold but once it heats up the speed ometer and tac dont work it shifts like ****

Sounds like you have an electrical problem. Your truck should have a 4l60E in it, which is controlled by the PCM. If the speed signal is missing it will shift poorly and at the wrong times. Check the connection and wires at the vehicle speed sensor on the drivers side of the tailshaft housing. If this is something that started occurring after the the transmission was replaced look for pinched wires or other damage to the wires that may have been done during the installation. I've seen some sloppy transmission shops damage things or leave stuff loose so just go over everything.

4x4 went out

My 95 Tahoe 4WD went out. I was the front axle engaging piston located on the front differential. The front driveshaft has power but shifting into 4WD causes the front differential to engage the two front wheels. You can remove it but leave it wired and see if it moves. I'm suspecting yours may be similar. If that's the problem less than $100 to replace yourself.

1995 tahoe desiel stalls when driving

I used to live on a farm where we had a number of Chevy diesel's in the 90-98 year range. The 6.2 and 6.5L diesel's in those trucks were known to have problems. A very common problem was with the fuel injection pump going bad, causing the engine to intermittently stall for apparently no reason during driving.
