Customer Question
2009 chevy Tahoe shifts...

2009 chevy Tahoe shifts to neutral out of no where. Also ABS light comes on as well as the break light and traction control light. When I put the truck in park, turn it off then restart the truck everything goes back to normal

Mechanic's Assistant: Is it just the ABS light? Or is the brake system warning light on, too?

Both.

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

No not fixing it myself. plan on going to the dealership. haven't tried anything so far other then turning the truck off and restarting it.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Cant think of anything else.

You will need a factory scanner or equivalent to run a diagnostic scan & retrieve fault codes from the Vehicle modules and based on these fault codes we can pull up a Pin Point troubleshoot
and be accurate on it ,If you do get it scanned ,you can post the fault code back here for me and I can help you further on it and be more accurate .

sounds like the tcm module going into limp mode but is it from abs issue or tcm issue,like valve body, shift solenoid etc,
