#6440 of 6469 Steering Wheel Squeak-Recall
Aug 31, 2010 (11:17 am)
I heard a few years back they recalled the steering wheels on 1995-1997? tahoes/suburbans/etc. due to squeaking when u would turn the wheel. Mine has that issue, and didn't know if since it was never fixed, if it would be covered by a recall from several years ago? I have no knowledge of recall rules, etc. so that's why I'm asking.

Did you ever get a response on this? We are having the same problem!
#6442 of 6469 child safety locks

We just bought a used 1999 Sub. We can find the child safety locks on the rear doors. Does this truck not come with this feature? I would think that a 99 would have these locks!

Did you mean to say "We can't find the . . ."

Did you check the owners manual?
I'm trying to remember whether my '97 had them. I thought they did, but we didn't really ever use that setting in any of our vehicles, so don't know for sure.
#6445 of 6469 Hole in transfer case...
Oct 29, 2010 (8:43 pm)
I have found that many late 90's - 2000 Tahoes and Suburbans have this same problem. Anyone hear of any inexpensive repair for it? The problem, apparently, is that the motor inside, hits the side of the case, causing a small hole. I was at the transmission shop today, and the tech. had a stack of them he showed me, all with the same hole in the same spot.

I have owned since new a 1996 Tahoe 2dr. w/6.5 turbo diesel. The only option I didn't get was the push button 4 wheel drive. Does anyone know how many of these were built? Mine has 130,000 miles and is a great vehicle. Mileage on the road is 17 -18 MPG. I call it a stump puller because of the power. It has taken the back seat to my Silverdo 6.6 Dura-Max but people still look in awh when they see it is diesel.

Hey man, I've been having the same problem. I'd really like to get this fixed because, while it apparently doesn't pose a serious mechanical threat(since mine's been doing this for nearly 5,000 miles), it is extremely annoying and embarrassing. I'm changing out my u-joints soon and will let you know if that's the problem.

The post you replied to, was 4 1/2 years ago. Good chance he doesn't even have the vehicle anymore!

This is usually the case in the longer trucks that unlike most vehicles which wear the front brakes out (as you break weight goes forward...more stress on front system) but in the XL/Suburban they get the back more often especially if you have ride leveling. I am on 3:1 ratio.
Now the shorter Tahoes/Yukons unless you have ride leveling should act like most vehicles. Hope this gives you some piece of mind
