Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

It is hard to figure out. the voltage is good from the battery to the starter. It clicks at first then it turns over on second try. May have to press the gas petal. I wish somebody could tell me how to fix this This vehicle sucks

problem #1

Dec 252007

Tahoe LS 5.7L Vortec

  • Automatic transmission
  • 129,000 miles

I really hate this truck. All it is is a bobtail suburban, which has been around FOREVER, and should have all problems recognized and solved by now. But noooooo...

Electrical problem. Truck ran fine, parked it in the driveway overnight, went to start the next day, starter solenoid clicks only, no spin, gauges swing continuously, power locks start locking and unlocking by themselves, warning lights aplenty....

So. I'm fairly mechanical, but am pretty intimidated by computerized vehicles. Not sure where to start diagnosing the problem and get the truck back into running order. Battery is fine, connections good.

Any advice would be appreciated.

I really hate this truck.
