Do you know how to do scan tool diagnostic's ? Checking DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes , viewing input data to the computers on the vehicle . The fuel sending unit is located inside the fuel tank ,it is a input to the PCM - engine computer . The PCM use's this fuel level info . to be able to conduct testing procedures for the evaporative emission system.
The Evaporative Emission Control System (EVAP) is used to prevent gasoline vapors from escaping into the atmosphere from the fuel tank and fuel system. The EVAP system usually requires no maintenance, but faults can turn on the Check Engine light and prevent a vehicle from passing an OBD II plug-in emissions test..
Shorted sensors can cause all kind of problems .including bring down the five volt reference circuit inside the PCM . Also checking for DTC'S in the 4X4 control module should have been done before replacing parts . Your best bet ,take it to a qualified repair shop.
Do you know which transfercase your vehicle has ?

The NVG 246 EAU transfer case features a 4 button shift control switch located on the instrument panel.
The BW 4482 transfer case features a 3-button shift control switch located on the instrument panel.

My wiring diagram only says "underhood", and also indicates that there's an I/P (interior/passenger)
relay box as well.
The cigarette lighter fuse in a 2003 Suburban is identified as a 15 Amp fuse.

If you can see under the seat, maybe move it forwards and raise it up if it is a power sear, look for the wires coming out from the rear of the seat bottom to a connection under the seat.

There should be a fuse block under the hood. Go double-check.

First things first...your vehicle will register fault codes for assisting in the trouble shooting of some system failures (usually emissions related faults.) This system is called OBDII.

Auto zone used to provide free reading of your vehicles on board computers in the hopes that you will purchase the required repair parts there.

When you retrieve the codes either by the assistance of a parts store or by purchasing a ODBII Code reader you will have a place to start your investigation.

PS: Your owner manual may also help to identify the meaning of tell tale lamps on your dash cluster.

The motor has sealed bearings. You need a motor but probably not the squirrel cage. The switch repair was to get the fan working and warranty wouldn't cover the fan.

    Removing the Starter
  1. Step 1 Open the hood to access the engine compartment. Disconnect the battery by unscrewing the positive and negative terminals. This will prevent the risk of electrical shock.
  2. Step 2 Crawl under the passenger side of the truck and locate the starter. The starter is positioned between the transmission and the engine.
  3. Step 3 Unbolt the negative and positive wires from the starter with a socket wrench. Take the nut off the stud and pull the wires off the stud. Repeat the same for the positive wire.
  4. Step 4 Unscrew the two bolts holding the starter to the frame. Wiggle the starter to work it free from the flywheel.
    Installing the Starter
  5. Step 1 Position the new starter onto the frame. Tighten the bolts to secure the starter in place.
  6. Step 2 Unscrew the nut on the positive stud and push the positive wire down on the stud. Tighten the nut on the stud to secure the positive wires.
  7. Step 3 Unscrew the nut on the negative stud. Push the negative wire on the stud and tighten the nut to the stud to secure the wire.
  8. Step 4 Connect the battery cables to the terminals. Ensure the positive wire connects to the positive terminal. Ensure the negative wire connects to the negative terminal.
  9. Step 5 Start the truck to ensure the starter is functioning correctly. The starter should catch as soon as you turn the key and start the truck.

P0140 - 02 Sensor Circuit No Activity Detected (Bank 1 Sensor 2)
The causes for a P0140 code are few and unless the wire/s has been damaged, replacing the sensor is usually the smartest thing to do.

The parking brake cables may be stretched and in need of adjustment. Follow the cables along to a nut. Then you can tighten the adjusters up on both sides until you have the proper tension. Also make certain none of the brackets are bent or broken that the cables ride through.
