Remote Keyless Entry
Transmitter Programming SEO AMF - Fleet Package of 6
Unprogrammed Remote Units
Do not operate or program the
transmitters in the vicinity of other
vehicles that are in the keyless
entry program mode. This prevents
the programming of the transmitters
to the incorrect vehicle.
When programming SEO AMF
transmitters, the original two
transmitters delivered with the
vehicle must also be programmed at
the same time or they will not
function with the vehicle.
Up to eight transmitters may be
programmed to the RKE on Police
and Special Service Package
equipped vehicles. The first four
transmitters are given the position of
#1-#4 in the RKE. Any further
transmitters will also be assigned to
position #4.
Verify that the proper transmitters
are learned to the vehicle. Do not
learn a transmitter with a remote
start button to a vehicle that does
not have remote start.
To access this DIC display, the
vehicle must be in P (Park). To
match a remote keyless entry
transmitter to the vehicle, do the
following:
1. Press the trip odometer reset
stem until RELEARN REMOTE
KEY displays.
2. Press and hold the trip reset
stem for three seconds. The
message REMOTE KEY
LEARNING ACTIVE will display.
3. At the same time, press and
hold Q and K on the first
transmitter for approximately
15 seconds. A beep will sound
indicating the transmitter is
matched to the vehicle.
4. Repeat Step 3 to match up to
five more transmitters. A total of
eight transmitters can be
matched per vehicle.
5. To exit the programming
mode, turn the ignition key
to LOCK/OFF.

Questions and Answers
About Airbags and
Specialty Law
Enforcement Vehicles
Q: Can equipment such as radar
devices, video cameras, and
radio trees be mounted in a
specialty vehicle equipped
with a right front passenger
frontal airbag?
A: Yes, but care must be taken to
properly mount the equipment
outside of the airbag
“deployment zone.”
Q: What is the airbag
“deployment zone”?
A: The term “deployment zone”
describes the space an airbag
takes up when fully inflated.
Airbags need room to work
properly, and anything in the
“deployment zone” — such
3-1
as improperly mounted
equipment — can greatly affect
the performance of the airbag.
{ WARNING
Airbags inflate with great force,
faster than the blink of an eye. No
objects, such as shotguns, should
be placed over or near the airbag
covers. Equipment mounted too
close to an inflating airbag could
break and become a dangerous
projectile in a crash, causing
injury to the vehicle's occupants.
Also, an object too close to an
inflating airbag could prevent the
airbag from operating properly.
If this ever happens, the airbag
would not be able to protect
occupants the way it was
designed to. To help prevent
injury and to allow the airbag to
perform as it was designed, do
not mount equipment inside the
airbag deployment zone.

Seats and Restraints
Q: How can I identify the airbag
“deployment zone” in my
vehicle?
A: See Airbag Deployment
Diagrams on page 3‑4 for more
information. The diagrams
provide the approximate
dimensions of the “deployment
zones” for your specialty vehicle.
Before doing any service work,
including the installation of any
equipment, consult the
appropriate service manual.
Q: Is it possible to shield
equipment so it does not
interfere with airbag
deployment?
A: While shielding may protect
certain equipment from being
damaged or dislodged, it may
also negatively affect how an
airbag inflates. Therefore, we
cannot recommend the
placement of any equipment in
the deployment zone, even
when shielding.
Q: Can the installation of push
bumpers on the front end of
the vehicle affect the
deployment of the airbag?
A: It is not likely that installing push
bumpers will affect sensing for
the airbag as long as the vehicle
structure itself is not modified.
GM is not aware of any adverse
defects from the many push
bumpers that have been
installed on current model GM
police vehicles with airbags.
Q: Is there anything I might add
to the front or sides of the
vehicle that could keep the
airbags from working
properly?
A: Yes. If you add things that
change your vehicle's frame,
bumper system, height, front end
or side sheet metal, they may
keep the airbag system from
working properly. Also, the
airbag system may not work
properly if you relocate any of
the airbag sensors.
If you have any questions
about this, you should contact
Customer Assistance before you
modify your vehicle. The phone
numbers and addresses for
Customer Assistance are in
Step Two of the Customer
Satisfaction Procedures in the
owner manual. See “Customer
Satisfaction Procedure” in the
owner manual Index.
The service manual has information
about the location of the airbag
sensors, sensing and diagnostic
module, and airbag wiring. See
“Service Publications Ordering
Information” in the owner manual.

Notices for Customer
Installed Equipment
Read the following notices before
installing equipment on your
specialty vehicle.
Notice: GM-approved service
procedures must be followed
to remove and reinstall the
instrument panel to the pad in
order to ensure proper airbag
deployment.
Notice: Do not mount equipment
on the passenger side of the
instrument panel top pad
deployment zone. Equipment
should not be mounted on or
around the passenger airbag
opening because of a deploying
airbag. To allow the airbag to
perform as it was designed, do
not mount equipment inside the
airbag deployment zone.
Notice: The police vehicle has
roof-rail airbags. Do not mount a
security barrier such that the
ends of the barrier or brackets
are within the roof-rail
deployment zones.
Notice: The police vehicle has
roof-rail airbags and a rollover
sensor. The rollover sensor is
mounted on the centerline of the
vehicle between the driver and
right front passenger positions.
If the vehicle has bucket seats,
the rollover sensor will be
exposed. Do not mount
equipment within 25 mm (1 in) of
the rollover sensor. This may
affect the performance of the
airbag system. To allow the
airbags to perform as they are
designed, do not mount
equipment near this area.
3-3
Notice: Avoid installing wiring for
roof-rail emergency lighting or
radio antennas that may restrict
the proper deployment of the
roof-rail airbags.

Vehicle Load Limits
The information in this section of the
supplement is for those who intend
to install additional equipment to the
police vehicle after it has left the
factory, and for those who will be
driving and loading the vehicle with
passengers and/or cargo.
Two labels on your vehicle show
how much weight it was designed to
carry, the Tire and Loading
Information label and the
Certification/Tire label. These labels
are attached to your vehicle and
give you the maximum load
capacity, the Gross Vehicle Weight
Rating (GVWR) and the Gross Axle
Weight Rating (GAWR) for your
vehicle. See “Vehicle Load Limits” in
the owner manual Index for
additional loading information.
9-1
The following guidelines can help
you with proper loading and load
distribution when installing
additional equipment on the
Tahoe Police Package.
{ WARNING
Do not load the vehicle any
heavier than the Gross
Vehicle Weight Rating
(GVWR), or either the
maximum front or rear Gross
Axle Weight Rating (GAWR).
This can cause systems to
break and change the way the
vehicle handles. This could
cause loss of control and a
crash. Overloading can also
shorten the life of the vehicle.
Chevrolet Tahoe Police and Special Service Packages - 2013 - CRC - 3/30/12
9-2
Driving and Operating
Adding Equipment to Your
Vehicle
Before adding accessories or
equipment to your police vehicle,
there are some things you need
to know:
.
The police vehicle's maximum
capacity weight.
.
The weight of your police
vehicle, including a full tank of
fuel but without a driver and
passengers.
.
.
Black plate (2,1)
The weight of items you plan on
adding to your police vehicle,
like roof mounted light bar(s),
push bumpers, security
barrier(s), rear storage
organizer, highway flares, fire
extinguishers, weapons,
ammunition, radios, and video
equipment.
The weight and number of
passengers you intend to carry
in your vehicle.
.
The total weight of any
additional cargo you intend to
carry in your vehicle.
When planning your vehicle
equipment installation remember not
to exceed the Gross Vehicle Weight
Rating (GVWR) or the Gross Axle
Weight Rating (GAWR) of the front
or rear axles. To keep the available
load weight less than the vehicle
capacity weight, you may need to
limit the number of passengers you
carry in your vehicle or change your
choice of additional equipment.
Center of Gravity (CG)
A vehicle's center of gravity is an
imaginary location inside the vehicle
and is a balance point for the
vehicle mass as it moves down the
road. The police vehicle's center of
gravity, before you add a load and
passengers, is approximately
midway between the center of the
axles, up from the ground to just
below the front window, and
between the driver and passenger.
Equipment location and weight on
the vehicle's center of gravity is
important to keep in mind when
planning an installation. Heavy
equipment should be positioned as
low and as far forward in the rear
load compartment as possible. Try
to mount the equipment below the
bottom of the side windows. Refer
to the Loading Zone chart and
diagram to help with your
installation plan.
A procedure to make the necessary
measurements and formulas to
calculate the vehicle longitudinal,
lateral and vertical position of the
center of gravity can be found in the
GM Coachbuilders Manual.
Equipment required to conduct the
measurements for calculating the
center of gravity are:
.
Weight scales of sufficient
capacity to measure the vehicle
weight at each wheel.
Chevrolet Tahoe Police and Special Service Packages - 2013 - CRC - 3/30/12
Black plate (3,1)
Driving and Operating
.
A post‐type hoist or other means
to safely elevate the front of the
vehicle to at least an angle of
20 degrees above horizontal.
Loading Zones
See your GM dealer to get more
information about this coachbuilder
procedure.
Keeping the center of gravity
midway between the axles is also
important to provide proper braking
performance. About half the total
vehicle weight on each axle is
recommended.
Weigh your vehicle after the
additional equipment has been
installed to determine the actual
weight of your vehicle. Weigh the
vehicle with a full tank of fuel and
without passengers. You may need
to put a limit on how many people or
other equipment you can carry
inside your vehicle after the
additional equipment has been
installed.

Emergency Flashing
System - SEO 6J7
SEO 6J7 provides a high-beam
headlamps flashing module, rear
lamps flashing and control wire for a
customer-furnished switch to turn
the module on or off. The flasher
control wire is coiled under the
center of the instrument panel. This
control lead may be combined with
the interior wiring leads for SEO 6J3
when that option is ordered with
SEO 6J7.
The headlamps flashing module is
located below the passenger side
front headlamp and forward of the
passenger side front wheel. The
module is connected to an inline
connector in the forward lamp
harness. The headlamps flashing
module is activated by the
application of 12 volts to a dark
green/red wire coiled in the
passenger side footwell.
When activated, the driver and
passenger side high-beam
headlamps and the high-beam
instrument panel cluster light will
flash alternately at 2.4 flashes per
second.
When the headlamps flashing
module is turned on, the module
sends a signal to the Body Control
Module (BCM). The BCM alternately
flashes the stop lamps and backup
lamps. Depressing the brake pedal
will override the stop lamp flashing
and placing the transmission in
reverse will override the backup
lamp flashing.
Activation of the headlamp and
rearlamp flashing can be separated
by opening the dark-blue/yellow
BCM circuit at the flasher module
connector, C122–F, and applying a
customer-switched ground to the
harness side of the wire in the
connector.
15-11
During daylight conditions, the
Daytime Running Lamps (DRL) are
automatically turned off whenever
the headlamps flasher module is
activated. During nighttime
conditions, the low-beam
headlamps turn on automatically
while the high-beam headlamps
flash. Turning on the high-beam
headlamps manually with the turn
signal/multifunction lever will
override the flashing module and
the high-beam headlamps will
operate continuously.

2. Remove the tape from the wire
coiled under the instrument
panel to uncoil it.
About 165 cm (65 in) of auxiliary
speaker wire is run from the
instrument panel radio connector
and is coiled under the center of the
instrument panel. The wiring permits
the connection of front speakers to
customer-installed communication
equipment.
3. Using proper electrical
connectors, connect the
wires for the left front audio
output of the customer-installed
communication device. The left
front positive wire is tan and the
left front negative wire is gray.
4. Using proper electrical
connectors, connect the
wires for the right front audio
output of the customer-installed
communication device. The right
front positive wire is light green
and the right front negative wire
is dark green. The electrical
impedance of each speaker
installed is 10 ohms.
Notice: Overloading the vehicle's
electrical system may damage
your vehicle's accessories.
Do not overload the vehicle's
system by having unnecessary
accessories on at the same time.
5. The ignition must be turned off
and the vehicle must be vacated
prior to attaching the cable to the
battery. Connect the negative (−)
battery cable to the battery and
tighten the bolt to 5 N·m
(3.7 lb ft).
6. Set the time on the clock and
radio pushbuttons as needed.
