Customer Question
09 tahoe electrical...

09 tahoe electrical .730 miles ...power locks go up and down . ..dashboard goes crazy. Eventually shuts down .

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Tahoe yourself? What have you tried so far?

73 k miles

New starter, new battery , new alternator, new terminal connection . Usually shuts down when battery indicator hits 10. Did terminal replacement yesterday . Now goes from 14.5 to 12 somewhat better . Afraid it'll shut down again. Any suggestions ?

Mechanic's Assistant: When you turn the key, do you get a single loud click, or a series of rapid ones?

No clicks
