1996 Chevrolet Tahoe Owner Comments

problem #6

1996 Tahoe headlight failure. When flipping the switch to turn O headlights they do not turn on. Spent almost $200 in diagnostic time. The repair shop says the wiring in the steering column is fatigued and frayed most likely due to repeated adjustments with the tilt steering wheel. Very expensive to repair. Using middle position with daytime running lights until I can get it repaired. This is a serious safety issue as the light cut out while I was driving home in the dark. Good thing the drl work.

: the contact stated the headlights would not illuminate. The contact had replaced the headlights and the headlight switch but that had not resolved the issue. The vehicle had not been to a service dealer.

There was an electrical burning smell coming from vehicle. Also, headlights & signals would not work if steering wheel & column was tilted. Sometimes headlights/ windshield wipers & signals would go hay wire. Vehicle is at the shop.
