I have recently started to experience a problem with my 2005 TB EXT and the AWD transmission. I was driving at ~60mph in the 2HI setting and all of a sudden the light came on the selector switch that it was switching to A4 AWD, then both lights were lit at the same time. I could feel the transaxle switching between modes and thought it was going to shut the engine down or stall it at least. It always seemed to correspond to letting my foot off of the accelerator to coast whilemaintaining speed. Has anyone heard or experienced the same problem? ">

I have a '02 TB LS and this happens to me about once every 6 months where the lights on the knob will switch the system to 4X4 without touching it. Dealership has replaced the turn knob at least 3 times and done multiple "reprogrammings". It happens infrequently without any ill effects so I gave up trying to fix it. Do a search on the other TB forum and you will see many posts on this problem. Seems that GM still does not have a fix yet. Just make sure you manually turn the knob a few times to get it back to 2HI.

My 02 TB is simila. It no longer chimes nor does the seatbelt light luminate when the vehicle is cranked. Not that I really need the reminder, so it is no big deal. My light with the seat belt and air bag does flash for a few seconds, but again no sound (by the way, what is that icon?) Mine has 80,000 mi and has been doing this for at least six months. Seat belt with air bag icon is weird, since if the air bag is acting up, the "Air Bag" light will illuminate right?
Nothing is broke, but since I read your post,

the trim piece housing the 3rd brake light can deatch from its plastic hinge mounts causing the lift gate to become inoperable.

I had that noise too on my '02. It was a while ago but I think there was a recall on it. Something about a computer chip. Check the dealer for recalls on the noise. Also didn't want to shift when that happened.

#91 of 665 Sway Bar Bushings???
Nov 30, 2005 (3:41 pm)
I keep hearing a clunking coming from the front left side of the vehicle. I thought it was just some of the plastics from underneath. I was told during my last oil change they said it was the sawy bar bushings. The TB has about 86,000 miles on it. Should these have gone bad. Would anyone know if they are difficult to replace, or where I could find an online manual to do it? Thanks

From what I can remember, without tearing the front end off the car, if you look under the hood to the back side of the lights you will see wires leading to the back of the headlight. These will usually screw out with a strong hand, and small arms!! replace the bulb and you should be good to go.
#93 of 665 SES / Cold Start / Reduced Power Light / clock reset
Dec 01, 2005 (6:25 am)
First, my SES light comes on periodically. If I re-adjust my gas cap it goes off. I think it has something to do with the pressure inside the tank. Anyway, that problem solved on to the next. I have a 2003 TB. I have just recently started having a problem that when I come out of the mornings (especially when it is cold) my car is reluctant to start. And, my clock resets to 12:00 everytime (which would indicate a loss of power). This was just happening in the morning but now it seems it is happening almost everytime I get in the car. Also, my reduced power light does come on when I start the car but it goes off once the car is running. I thought it might be a low battery but am not sure. Any thoughts?
