Tire chains may be used with caution. See your owner's manual for specific recommendations regarding conditions. If the vehicle is equipped with a
P265/60R17 tire size, use tire chains only where legal and only when necessary. Use low profile chains that add no more than 12 mm thickness to the
tire tread and inner sidewall. Use chains that are the proper size for the tires. Install them on the tires of the rear axle. Don't use chains on the tires of
the front axle. Tighten them as tightly as possible with the ends securely fastened. Drive slowly and follow the chain manufacturer's instructions. If
the chains contact the vehicle, stop and retighten them. If the contact continues, slow down until it stops. Driving too fast or spinning the wheels with
chains on will damage the vehicle.

VEHICLE LOAD LIMITS
This information is intended for those who intend to install additional equipment on 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.
The following guidelines can help you with proper loading and load distribution when installing additional equipment on the TahoePolice
Package.
WARNING
Do not load the vehicle any heavier than the Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR), Nor 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.
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 (payload). The weight of your police vehicle, including a full tank of fuel but without
a driver and passengers.
• 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. Towing a trailer may change the vehicle
payload capacity.
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.
• 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.
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.
Note: See loading zone weight chart and diagram

NOTE:
Cargo weight can be greater with fewer occupants. Towing a trailer may change vehicle payload
refer to your owner's manual supplement for determining maximum cargo loading and positioning.
Using heavier suspension components to get added durability might not change your weight ratings.
Ask your dealer to help you load your vehicle the right way.

STANDARD EQUIPMENT
Wiring Provisions for 12-volt battery power supply
relay control wires and the relay contact 30-amp load side wires for customer connection are
identified as follows:
The vehicle is equipped with wiring provisions for connecting 12-volt battery power to customer installed
equipment. Refer to the following information when adding electrical accessories that will use the 12-volt
power supply circuits connected to the vehicle’s electrical system. A wiring harness is located below the
instrument panel (IP) near the center of the vehicle and another connection point is located in the left rear of
the cargo area.
The 12-volt battery power for customer connection is supplied from the Primary vehicle battery via control
relays to four blunt cut 30-amp circuit wires and from an Auxiliary battery via one blunt cut 50 -amp circuit wire
in the harness under the center IP. A blunt cut ground wire is also included in the front harness.
A 100-amp Rear Electrical Center (REC) stud is located in the left rear cargo area.
The Primary battery is located at the right rear of the engine compartment and the Auxiliary Battery is located
at the left front of the engine compartment. The Auxiliary Battery is connected to the vehicle charging system
via a relay which is closed when the ignition is ON.
Four 30-amp control relays and 30-amp fuses are located in the Underhood Electrical Center (UEC).
Also in the UEC are two 5-amp fuses which connect control relay coils 1 and 2 and control relay coils 3 and 4 to
the UEC primary battery Ignition Power (Run/Crank) bus. Refer to the UEC label showing the 5-amp fuse

LDW may help avoid crashes due to unintentional lane
departures. It may provide a warning if the vehicle is
crossing a detected lane marking without using a turn signal
in the lane departure direction. LDW uses a camera sensor to
detect the lane markings. It only operates at speeds of 35
mph (56 km/h) or greater. When the vehicle crosses a
detected lane marking, the LDW indicator will flash and
either three beeps will be sounded from the left or right
side, or three Safety Alert Seat pulses will occur on the left or
right side of the seat, depending on the lane departure
direction. LDW will not warn if the turn signal is on in the
departure direction, or if a sharp maneuver is made.
Alert Timing
Selector
SET
The Collision Alert control is on the steering wheel. Press
the Forward Collision Alert Button to set the FCA timing to
Far, Medium, Near, or on some vehicles, Off. The first
button press shows the current setting on the DIC.
Additional button presses will change this setting. The
chosen setting will remain until it is changed and will
affect the timing of both the Collision Alert and the
Tailgating Alert features. The timing of both alerts will
vary based on vehicle speed. The faster the vehicle speed,
the farther away the alert will occur. Consider traffic and
weather conditions when selecting the alert timing. The
range of selectable alert timing may not be appropriate for
all drivers and driving conditions.
Optional Safety Alert Seat. Drivers get feedback
transmitted as a vibration through the surface of the
drivers seat bottom cushion. When the Lane Departure
Warning system’s camera detects the vehicle is leaving a
lane without a turn signal active in that direction, a
vibration in the left or right seat bolster directs the driver’s
attention to the side of the lane encroachment. When a
potential collision is detected ahead by the Forward
Collision Alert system, both sides of the seat vibrate.

6N5 SWITCHES – REar Window
Inoperative
6j7 – Exterior lamps Emergency
Flashing System
Rear door window switches are inoperable. Rear door power regulators are operable
only from driver position switches.
Option 6J7 provides a headlamps high beam flashing module, rear lamps flashing via
the Body Control Module (BCM) and a control wire for customer-furnished switching
to turn the module on and off. The flasher control wire is part of the blunt-cut upfitter
harness coiled under the instrument panel in the front passenger side foot well. The
flashing module is located on the rear edge of the right hand upper radiator support.
6N6 – Rear Door Locks and
handles Inoperative
The headlamp flashing module is activated by the application of 12 volts to a dark
green wire in the upfitter harness connector labeled 6J3. When activated, the
headlamp high beams and the high beam instrument cluster indicator will flash
alternately at 2.4 flashes per second. When the flashing module is turned on, the
module sends a signal to the BCM which alternately flashes the stop lamps and
backup lamps at the same flash rate as the headlamps. Depressing the brake pedal
will override the stop lamp flashing and placing the transmission in Reverse will
override the backup lamps flashing.
Rear door locking rods are disabled. Rear door locks are inoperable at rear doors, but
operate from driver position. Inside rear door handles are disconnected. Rear doors
can only be opened from the outside.
S6N TRAILER HITCH INSERT
During daylight conditions, the Daytime Running Lamps (DRL) are automatically
turned off whenever the headlamps flashing module is activated. During night time
conditions, the low beam headlamps automatically turn on while the high beam
lamps flash. Turning on the high beam headlamps manually will override the flashing
module and the high beam headlamps will operate continuously. During night time
conditions the tail lamps will turn on automatically. If Option 9G8 is present the low
beam headlamps and tail lamps will not come on automatically. The Center Mounted
Stop Lamp will operate only when the service brakes are applied.
A 10-amp fuse labeled POLICE UPFITTER protects the flasher module circuit. The fuse
is located in the Underhood Electrical Center in the engine compartment on the driver
side of the vehicle. See also the Owner Manual for more information.
Activation of the headlamps flashing and rear lamps flashing can be separated by opening
the blue/green BCM circuit at the flasher module connector, C196-F, and applying a
customer-switched ground to the blue/green wire in the upfitter harness which exits from
under the floor covering between the front seats. Power to the green flasher module
activation wire must be off for the rear lamps flashing only.
Warning:
BCM will be damaged if 12V power is connected to the dark-blue/yellow wire. NOTE: For wiring diagram see Wiring Section

owners see their dealer. If there are no currently recognized
keys available, follow this procedure to program the first key.
This procedure will take approximately 30 minutes to
complete for the first key. The vehicle must be off and all
of the keys must be with you.
1. Insert the new vehicle key into the ignition.
2. Turn to ON/RUN. The security light will come on.
3. Wait 10 minutes until the security light turns off.
4. Turn the ignition to LOCK/OFF.
5. Repeat Steps 2–4 two more times. After the third time,

Remaining keys can be learned by
following the procedure in
“Programming with a
Recognized Key.”
The key has a bar-coded key tag that the
dealer or qualified locksmith can use to
make new keys. Store this information in
a safe place, not in the vehicle. See your
dealer if a replacement key or additional
key is needed. If it becomes difficult to
turn a key, inspect the key blade for
debris. Periodically clean with a brush or
pick. With an active OnStar subscription,
an OnStar Advisor may remotely unlock
the vehicle. See OnStar.com

2015 TAHOE 4x4 Special Service
Can specialty vehicle equipment (e.g. radar devices, video
cameras, computers, meters, radio trees, shotguns, etc.) still
be mounted in cars with passenger side air bags?
Yes, but care must be taken to mount the equipment outside of the deployment
zone. Air bags inflate with great force and will interact with any object in the
deployment zone. Therefore, to reduce the risk of injury to vehicle occupants,
GM recommends that the air deployment zone be kept free of any equipment. If
a piece of equipment were to become dislodged it could strike an occupant in
the vehicle and result in injury. The likelihood of an object becoming dislodged
is influenced by many factors, including the proximity of the object to the
inflatable restraint, the size and shape of the object, and the means by which
the object is secured to the vehicle. In addition to these factors, the trajectory
and velocity of a dislodged object can be influenced by the type and severity of
vehicle crash.
Objects that are in the deployment zone, but do not become dislodged by an
inflating air bag can still affect the performance of the air bag. For example,
such objects could tear the fabric or affect the shape of the air bag, thus reducing
the ability of the bag to provide restraint.
Is it possible to shield equipment that is installed in the
passenger side frontal air bag deployment zone in a manner
that will allow full and safe air bag deployment?
AIR BAG FAQ
Due to the complexity of influencing variables, GM is unable to evaluate the
potential for shielding expected equipment configurations in all accident
scenarios in order to assure that the air bag performance would be unaffected.
While shielding may protect certain equipment from being damaged or
dislodged, it may also negatively affect the inflation characteristics of the air
bag. The air bag’s shape, inflation angle, fold pattern, and inflation rate and
pressure are developed to maximize the protection capability of the inflatable
restraint system. Therefore, GM cannot recommend the placement of any
equipment in the deployment zone, even if it is shielded to protect it from
damage.
Front air bag systems and instrument panel mounted
equipment.
Passenger air bags in GM vehicles deploy in different ways depending upon the
type of vehicle and the particular instrument panel design.
In some vehicles, the passenger air bag deploys through a discrete door located
on the top surface of the instrument panel (top-mount air bag systems). In
other vehicles, such as the Chevrolet Tahoe, the passenger air bag deploys
through a discrete door mounted on the vertical rearward surface of the
instrument panel, above the glove box door (mid-mount air bag system). With
these types of top-mount and mid-mount passenger air bag systems, the top
pad of the instrument panel remains in place during deployment.
Some GM passenger air bag systems, like the system in the Chevrolet Impala,
deploy from beneath the instrument panel top pad. These are considered 3/4mount air bag systems with a “deployable top pad.” The entire instrument
panel top pad is the “deployment door” from under which the inflating air bag
emerges. When an air bag deployment is commanded, the forces from the
inflating passenger air bag push up on the instrument panel top pad, releasing
special fasteners across the rearward edge of the top pad. This allows the top
pad to rotate upward so that the passenger air bag may emerge. The top pad
rotates upward to open widest at the right hand side, and is usually forced
upward into contact with the windshield on the right hand side of the vehicle
during a deployment.
to the top pad to avoid being dislodged in the event of a crash and possible air
bag deployment. In the process of securely fastening special equipment to the
top, DO NOT fasten down the top pad itself to any other vehicle component such
as the cluster trim plate. As described above, the top pad rotates upward during
a deployment. In order to enable the proper deployment of the passenger air
bag, specialty equipment installation MUST NOT PREVENT the top pad from
rotating upward during deployment. Location and attachment of special
equipment should minimize added resistance or interference to upward rotation
of the top pad during deployment.
Side-Impact Air Bags for crashes to the vehicle sides.
The air bag system in your police vehicle includes roof rail mounted Head Curtain
side air bags. The vehicle is also equipped with seat back mounted upper body
air bags located on the outboard side of the driver and front passenger seat
backs. Together the Head Curtain and seat-mounted side air bags are intended
to protect the head and upper body in the event of a side crash. Some vehicles
may also be equipped with an optional air bag, mounted on the inboard side of
the driver seat back.
Can Specialty Vehicle Security Barriers be mounted within the
side air bag deployment zones?
No. The side air bags inflate extremely fast because of the nature of side crashes
to the vehicle. Mounting a security barrier behind the front seats with the ends
placed within the side air bag deployment zones will result in unintended
interaction between the barrier and the inflating side air bags. To reduce the risk
of injury to the vehicle occupants, GM recommends that the side air bag zones
be kept free of any customer installed equipment.
Customer furnished equipment installed to the vehicle roof.
Your police vehicle is designed with an interior roof cover system which includes
internal components for the interior lamps and wiring. The roof system may also
include side air bag components. Inflation devices may be mounted on the
vehicle roof side behind the rear doors as well as air bag tethers retained to the
windshield pillars. Care must be taken to avoid damage to these components
or interference with their operation when installing roof mounted equipment
such as emergency lamps and communication antennas.
Recommended GM service procedures must be followed to
remove and re-install the instrument panel top pad to ensure
that the top pad will release properly in the event of a
passenger air bag deployment.
On the right half of the top pad closest to the passenger air bag module,
GM recommends that no equipment be mounted. When mounting equipment
on the driver side of the top pad, GM recommends that the total mass of the top
pad mounted special equipment not exceed 8 pounds (3.6 kilograms), since
some top pads tend to rotate about the left end.
Fasteners used to secure special equipment to the instrument panel top pad, the
windshield glass, or to the windshield upper frame (header), should be selected
to ensure that these devices will remain attached during a vehicle crash and
possible air bag deployment.
Instrument panel top mounted special equipment, such as a radar antenna and
control unit or video camera must be positioned to the left of the vehicle center
line. This equipment must be mounted as low as possible and securely fastened
ead curtain side air bags are designed to help reduce the risk of head and neck injuries to front and rear seat occupants on the near side of certain side-impact collisions. Always use safety belts
H
and the correct child restraints for your child’s age and size, even in vehicles equipped with air bags. Children are safer when properly secured in a rear seat. See your vehicle Owner’s Manual and
child safety seat instructions for more information.
Revised 3/13/2015
2015 TAHOE 4x4 Special Service
Can the installation of push bumpers on the front end of the
vehicle affect the deployment of the air bag?
General Motors is not aware of adverse effects during crash events from the
many push bumpers that have been installed on GM police vehicles. Because
there are many styles of push bumpers available with varying crash
characteristics, installation of push bumpers may or may not affect deployment
timing of the air bags. Push bumpers should be mounted to avoid modifying the
vehicle structure and interfering with the front air bag sensors mounted on the
upper radiator support cross member.
Two front impact sensors are installed in General Motors vehicles. Do not
relocate or disconnect the front sensors. The location and orientation of the front
sensors are critical for correct operation of the air bag system. Avoid mounting
components on or near the sensors. Push bumper styles with vertical pushing
members that are in foreaft alignment with the front air bag sensors are not
recommended.
When should an air bag inflate?
The driver's and right-front passenger's frontal air bags are designed to inflate
in moderate to severe frontal or near-frontal crashes. But they are designed to
inflate only if the impact speed is above the system's designed "threshold
level."
If the front of your vehicle goes straight into a wall that doesn't move or deform,
the threshold level of the reduced deployment is about 12 to 16mph (19 to 15
km/h), and the threshold level for a full deployment is about 18 to 24 mph (29
to 28.5 km/h). The threshold level can vary, however, with specific vehicle
design, so that it can be somewhat above or below this range.
If your vehicle strikes something that will move or deform such as a parked car,
the threshold level will be higher. The driver's and right-front passenger's
frontal air bags are not designed to inflate in rollover, side impacts, or rear
impacts, because inflation would not help the occupant.
Seat mounted side impact air bags are designed to inflate in moderate to severe
side crashes. The side impact air bags will inflate if the crash severity is above the
designed "threshold level." The threshold level can vary with specific vehicles
design. The side impact air bags are not designed to inflate on frontal or nearfrontal impacts or rear impacts, because inflation would not help the occupant.
How long will the air bag remain inflated?
It takes approximately 1/20th of a second to fully inflate the frontal air bags. This
is faster than the blink of an eye. The air bags begin to deflate immediately,
helping to stop the occupants more gradually.
I've heard that a deployed air bag produces what appears to be
smoke, is the air bag hot?
After the bag has deployed in a crash, the air bag itself will not be hot to touch.
Some components within the air bag module will be hot for a short time. A
small amount of smoke coming from a deployed air bag module is normal and
should not be cause for concern.
Also, when the nitrogen gas is vented out of the air bag, small particles from
inside the bag are also vented into passenger compartment. These airborne
particles look like smoke and some particles are deposited as residue on and
around the air bag.
I've heard that the dusts that are released into the passenger
compartment from the air bag are harmful, is this true?
For most people, the only effect the dusts will produce is some irritation of the
throat and eyes, and that is only if the occupant remains in the vehicle for many
minutes after the air bag deployment with no ventilation and windows closed.
However, some people with asthma may develop an asthmatic attack from
inhaling the dusts. If this happens, they should first treat themselves the same
way their doctor has advised them to treat any other asthma attack, and then
immediately seek medical treatment.
Can the air bag system be re-used?
No. The air bags are designed to inflate only once. After inflation, some new
parts will be required. These will include the air bag module and possibly other
parts. (A competent service technician with access to the vehicle's service
manual and the required tools should replace the required components after a
deployment crash.)
If my vehicle has air bags, why should I have to wear my safety
belt?
Air bags are in many vehicles today and will be in most of them in the future.
But they are supplemental systems only; so they work with safety belts, not
instead of them. Every air bag system ever offered for sale has required the use
of safety belts. Even if you're in a vehicle that has air bags, you still have to
buckle up to get the most protection. That's true not only in frontal collisions but
especially in side and other collisions.
Roof rail mounted head-curtain air bags are designed to inflate in moderate to
severe side crashes. In addition, certain vehicles have head-curtain air bags
which are also designed to inflate in situations where an impending rollover
condition is identified by the vehicle's rollover sensing system and/or frontal or
near-frontal impacts if the crash severity is above the designed "threshold
level."
Safety belt pretensioners at the driver and front passenger seat positions are
designed to deploy in frontal, near-frontal, side, and rear crashes that exceed
the "threshold level" of crash severity to help reduce slack in the safety belt.
Safety belt pretensioners will also deploy in impending rollover situations.
Revised 3/13/2015
AIR BAG FAQ
In addition, your vehicle has “dual stage” frontal air bags which tailor the the
amount of restraint according to crash severity. For moderate frontal impacts,
the air bags inflate at a level less than full deployment. For more severe frontal
impacts, "dual stage" frontal air bags deploy at full levels.

Electronic Stability Control system (StabiliTrak)
Stabilitrak
StabiliTrak systems help drivers maintain control of
their vehicles, especially during emergency lane changes
or avoidance maneuvers. StabiliTrak uses various
sensors, such as steering wheel angle, wheel speed, yaw
velocity, etc., to detect any difference between the path
requested by the steering wheel position and vehicle’s
actual path. When appropriate, the system selectively
controls brakes, engine power, and even suspension
settings to enhance control of the vehicle’s direction
and help keep it on course.
Independent studies conducted by the National Highway
Traffic Safety Administration, the Insurance Institute
for Highway Safety, and others have found StabiliTrak
to be highly effective in reducing vehicle crashes.
General Motors offers StabiliTrak systems on many of its
passenger car and light truck models.
See your owner's manual for additional information
about the operation of StabiliTrak.
Q. How does StabiliTrak work?
A. StabiliTrak has the ability to apply control forces to the vehicle independent
of the driver. StabiliTrak uses sensors to continuously compare the path
indicated by the steering wheel position to the vehicle’s actual path. If a
discrepancy is detected, StabiliTrak selectively controls vehicle brakes and
engine torque to create a yaw moment that helps restore the vehicle’s
actual path to the path indicated by the steering wheel position. StabiliTrak
has the ability to help correct both understeer (where the vehicle is not
turning as much as the steering wheel position indicates) and oversteer
(where the vehicle is turning more than the steering wheel position
indicates).
Q. Will a tire change affect StabiliTrak?
A. Use of tires other than original equipment may affect StabiliTrak
performance. StabiliTrak is designed to make the best use of available
traction. The performance characteristics of the original equipment tires
are part of the overall system effectiveness. When you replace tires check
the recommendations in your owner's manual. On GM vehicles, the
original equipment tires have a “TPC” (Tire Performance Criteria) code on
the sidewall. Replacing the tires with the same “TPC” code will help assure
proper StabiliTrak performance.
Q. How do I use StabiliTrak?
A. S tabiliTrak operates independently of the driver. You should continue to
drive your StabiliTrak equipped vehicle with caution and care. GM’s
StabiliTrak system, StabiliTrak is designed to be as seamless as possible
in operation, and part of the overall vehicle response to make a good
vehicle better
DRIVER OPERATED STABILITRAK BUTTON
An advanced computer controlled stability enhancement system assists the driver with directional control of the
vehicle in difficult driving conditions. Each time the vehicle is started, the StabiliTrak system is fully on. StabiliTrak
can be controlled by a button located on the left side of instrument panel. The condition system is displayed by a
StabiliTrak indicator light and Driver Information Center (DIC) Message. Push once to disable Traction Control.
Push and hold to disable both Traction Control and StabiliTrak. In this condition, StabiliTrak will automatically
turn ON when the vehicle speed exceeds 35 mph (56km/hr) while the Traction Control remains OFF. Push again to
enable Traction Control and StabiliTrak.

Tires The tires supplied with your vehicle are covered by General Motors against defects in material or workmanship under the Bumper-to-
Bumper Limited Warranty coverage. Wear-out is not considered a defect, and it may occur before the vehicle warranty expires. In this
case, the owner is responsible for purchasing replacement tires, or seeking coverage solely from the tire manufacturer. For vehicles
within the Bumper-to-Bumper Limited Warranty coverage, defective tires will be replaced on a prorated adjustment basis according to
the mileage-based schedule in your Warranty and Owner Assistance Information booklet. After your New-Vehicle Limited Warranty
expires, you may still have prorated warranty coverage on your original equipment tires by the tire manufacturer.
