#60 of 607 2002 Suburban front right vibration
Aug 17, 2006 (8:15 am)
I have a vibration in the front right of my Suburban. It starts at about 35 MPH, but can be felt most over 57 MPH. Chevy dealer has balanced wheels, replaced tires, alligned vehicle, road balanced wheels and now suggests a different tire. I also had front shocks replaced. Nothing is stopping this shudder through the whole vehicle. Chevy is correcting effects, but has yet to find the cause. They have been very easy on the cost factor to me, (discounted pricing, minimal labor charges, etc.) so it's not that.
A second Chevy dealer checked the whole front end and also could not find anything wrong. Idler arm, ball joints, tie rods, the whole nine yards all check as OK.

I had a mechanic which recently replaced my Drac module to fix my transmission shifting problems. I was told by the Chevy dealer that this module had nothing to do with the shifting. I was wondering if anyone had information regarding this.This mechanic also said he got the part from a salvage yard but I was also told this would not work. I was wondering if I got ripped off.

Surely, they have moved that tire/wheel to another location to see if the problem follows?

My 2002 8.1 overheated last year. Even saw a message on the dash about high temperature. Did you see anything? What does the temperature gage show? I replaced the fan clutch with a Hayden severe duty clutch.

Hi Terry, Yes, they rotated tires and problem stays in front right. Dealer used a vibration analyzer and found that it is vibrating once per rotation. Different wheel, now 3 sets of tires and it remains in front right, once per rotation.
#65 of 607 Service four-wheel drive light on on 2000 chev. Suburban

I just traded for a 2000 Chevy Suburban, the service 4-wheel drive light came on today. Is this a problem that should have been solved by a recall or is this serious?

2003 Suburban. Is there a way to disable the annoying chime that sounds when service light comes on? I have an ABS light that comes on and off and the chime is very annoying.

Hello, anybody home?!?
It is supposed to be annoying so that you would take your vehicle to have break system repaired. Why would you keep driving a car with ABS warning light on?
I hope NOBODY gives you instructions of how to disable the chime, but that's just me.

Hello anybody home- unfortunately attempts to locate the source of the ABS problem have been unsuccessful. I get the message - I can see the light - I don't need a chime every few seconds. I have been driving vehicles for 30 years without ABS. They are not a necessity.
