#751 of 762 2003 Tahoe Rear Window Working Intermittently
Oct 27, 2013 (12:37 pm)
I have a 2003 Chevrolet Tahoe that I have owned since new. Recently it was taken to a detail shop and on bringing it home the driver side window rolled down by itself and wouldn't go back up. We took it back and they replaced the switch on the rear door. It seems to have the same problem again. It will go down by itself occasionally and can only be raised from the rear door switch, but not all of the time. Sometimes it won't roll up, but then later it will. The switch on the front door seems to be able to lower it, but not raise it. Thank you in advance for any suggestions or help that you can provide.

2004 Tahoe 160,000 miles, well maintained. Started hesitating as if not getting enough fuel while traveling across country. Stopped at autozone, no codes found. Gas treatment and changed fuel pump relay (looked burnt). Continued without a problem for 600 miles. Finally stalled, went completely dead. Towed to 1st dealer who charged us 1100$ for new fuel pump. Stalled in parking lot. Techs ran all the checks, test drove. Stated it was computer recharging. Believed them and left. Went 107 miles, stalled again, same problem. Dealer #2 says air flow sensor $550. NOPE. Stalled on test drive. NOW ECM need replacing. Just picked up. Another $1100. Made it 70 miles before stalling again. Now stranded on side of road.
I've always always had Chevys. But I am convinced they don't know their product. If the computer can't tell them what's wrong, they can't figure it out and just start replacing things while I hemorrhage cash.

Can you hear the fuel pump run up when you turn the key to the "Run" position w/o starting? If so, then you need to get a fuel pressure gauge and check the next time it stalls. Harbor Freight carries them. Also check the fuel pump relay.

Thanks for your reply. Yes. Can hear fuel pump priming. Service tech at 1st dealer said pressures were ok--after replacing pump. Car wont start now. Need to get trailer to drag home. Already replaced relay
#755 of 762 2013 Chevy Tahoe will not accelerate

So disgusted with my new Tahoe. I do not have 8,000 miles on it and it will drive OK for 5 mins then will not accelerate, sputters when I hit the gas. It feels like it will just stop. I barely got it home. What in the world would cause this? I have the 5.3 engine. I am afraid it will not make it to the dealer without stopping and leaving me on the side of the road. It is under warranty for sure, but I hate to see it start staying at the dealer and not in my driveway.

Forgot to add I already checked the gas cap, etc. It just stutters when I hit the gas going up a hill, etc. Feels like it will stall out. Slows down, makes a loud noise from underneath when this happens, but nothing is falling out.

Could be the fuel pump going Tango Uniform. But it could be a myriad of other things. I'd get it to the dealer soon.

The Tahoe left me stranded. Fuel pump failed. Can't believe I had less than 8000 miles and fuel pump failed. The dealer it was towed too was so rude. Really need to watch the fuel pumps in these vehicles.

Try not to run the tank below 1/4 as the fuel keeps the pump motor cool.
