The noise probably has something to do with the problem and noises can't be correctly diagnoised unless heard. Take it to the shop.

AnswerLate model Chevrolets were designed with the most horrible battery terminals I have ever seen! It's just a guess but I've seen it on several other Chevys of that era (Tahoes, etc). The terminals appear to be tight but they make poor connection. I'm not a professional mechanic but on that vehicle that would be the first place i'd look.

Why do the daytime running lights on a rebuilt 2003 Chevy Silverado pickup only work when the unlock button is pushed on the keyless entry?

Evidentally the lights were wired up wrong. You will have to take ti to someone and have it streightened out. Are you sure they don't work? They only come on when the engine is running and the vehcile is in gear. If you just start the truck up and look for the lights, they will not be on. It has to be in gear.

What is check gauges for 1999 Chevy Tahoe?

When one of your gauges shows something abnormal, your "check gauges" light will come one. Chances are you're low on motor oil. When you corner, the oil will slosh away from the pickup, causing your oil pressure gauge to read zero for a second. This in turn causes your check gauges light to come on, but by the time you look at your gauges, the oil has settled in the pan is your oil pressure is reading normal again. When you see the check gauges light and the gauges are reading fine, check your oil.
