Hello my name is ***** ***** i will do my best to help you , i strive for EXCELLENT service and nothing more. From what you are saying , this leads me to believe the issue is with the tire sensors. They have internal NON replaceable batteries that only last about 8 years and by the age of your Tahoe it is right at that point. Most likely you will have to have all 4 tire sensors replaced. The sensors can be purchased at napa or the dealer at a decent price if the system is worth having to you. The dealer or a mechanic shop has a scan tool that can activate and test the current sensors to see if they display the remaining battery life or if they do not read at all. The sensors are part of the valve stem and are not easy to replace without a tire machine.
