I had a problem when my 2002 Suburban wouldn't start and my friend had your problem. We both had aftermarket alarms with remote start. The trucks alarm system shut his truck off and kept mine from starting. After 15 minutes the problem goes away. I discontinued using my Viper (alarm/starting system) and am trouble free. Do you have a remote start or alarm system that can prevent the engine from running?

Not sure what year you have. Most years, you just disconnect the negative side of the battery for 15 minutes and the light is gone

Agree. We had an '89 Suburban/2500/454cc (7.4l) had: 220hp3300/425tq1800 and the power was awsome! She got 8-10mpg. We now have a '98 Suburban/1500/350cc Vortec (5.7l) it has: 255hp4600/330tq2800 and 6500lbs towing. She gets 13-16mpg. Not as much power as yours, but she does what we need (wife, 3 kids and two dogs!). Wouldn't trade her for anything =)
#330 of 1043 Noisy exhaust
Sep 13, 2005 (6:12 am)
We have a 2003 Suburban w/ 5.3. There seems to be a rattling noise coming from the exhaust right around the O2 sensor. Could the O2 sensor make this noise or could it be something else.

My '00 makes a similar noise which seems to come from around the exhaust. I doubt it would be the 02 sensors. It most likely comes from a heat shield or the exhaust itself.
The sound is very annoying and seems to be worse when the engine is cold.

I got under the vehicle last night and pinpointed where the sound was coming from. The only other thing was the engine light came on. The exhaust was shaking and I could stop the vibration by wedging a hammer against the exhaust and the frame. It is coming from right under the drivers seat.

Bad O2 senser definitely would turn the CE light on and might cause the engine to run a little rougher which could shake the exhaust some more.
I don't have a CE light and did just recently had the FI system cleaned and plugs replaced. I still get the exhaust rattle and I now just ignore it along with all of the other rattles this vehicle has, typical of GM vehicles.

Here's one that is similar and that I could use some help on. My Service Engine Soon light is on pretty much continuously. Once in a while, the Check Gauges light comes on. When this happens, the RPM and Speed Indications and Shift Indicator Lights all go out. In addition, something "kicks in" that causes very, very slow acceleration. Dealer said error codes started with transmission solenoid issues. $380+ dollars later and several days in the shop to get the transmission looked at, and the exact same problem exists. A new issue popped up today, and that was that it sounds like the ABS is kicking in about 10' prior to coming to a full stop.
All these "Gremlins" started popping up at about the same time. The problems started about a month ago, the braking issue started two days ago.
Anyone seen anything like this. I don't want to throw good money after bad on this one. Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!!
#335 of 1043 Towing Capacities for 88-91 Suburban 1500???
Sep 13, 2005 (4:36 pm)
I am looking to buy a 88-91 Suburban 1500 4x4 but I cannot find the towing capacities for this model. Does ANYONE have the tow ratings for the 1500 and 2500 models? I have been searching for HOURS.
