1997 Chevrolet Questions and Answers


  • Adding a 7-Way Trailer Connector to a 1997 Chevy C/K Series Pickup
  • It sounds like you need to add a 7-Way RV style trailer connector to your 1997 Chevy pickup. Since you already have a connector, you will just need to add a 4 and 7 Way Installation Kit, # ETBC7. Though I am not certain if you have a 5-Way flat connector or a 4-Way flat connector. If you have a 4-Way, it will plug into the back of the ETBC7. If you have a 5-Way, I recommend first installing a 4-Way using part # 118315, and plugging it into the back of the ETBC7. With the 4-Way plugged...

  • Installing Trailer Brake Controller and 7-way Trailer Wiring Harness on 1997 Chevy Silverado
  • To prepare your Silverado for towing, you will need a brake controller, the install kit # ETBC7, and the T-1 connector, part # 118315 to tap into the truck lighting circuits. Although we offer many different brake controllers, I would recommend a proportional-type controller like the Tekonsha Prodigy P2, part # 90885. A proportional controller has an internal sensor that can detect how quickly and at what intensity the tow vehicle is braking, and will then send the appropriate amount...

  • Welding Redline Spindles # R40484 and # R50642 for Utility Trailer with 2-3/8 inch O.D. Pipe
  • You have a 2-3/8 inch O.D. pipe so you might want to look at Redline Spindle 2 inch x 4 inch Round Stub, # R40484, which has a 2 inch O.D. at the weld point and has a 1750 lb. capacity, so two spindles will give that axle 3500 lb capacity or Redline Spindle 2-1/4 inch RD x 6 inch STUB, # R50642, which has a 2.25 inch O.D. at the weld point and has a 2500 lb. capacity for a total capacity of 5000 lbs. The total capacities of the spindles are only valid if installed correctly and the axles...

  • How to Locate the Brake Switch Wire on a 1997 Chevrolet C/K Pickup
  • To find the cold side of the brake pedal switch you will need to use a circuit tester, item # 3808 if needed, and test the wires coming out of the connector on the brake pedal switch under the dash. The wire you are looking for has 12 volts only when the brake pedal is pressed. I have posted links to installation instructions and a video for you to review that should help. At about 7 minutes and 23 seconds in the video testing for the brake pedal switch wire is demonstrated.

  • Recommended Hitch and Weight Distribution for 2007 Toyota Tacoma Towing 3500 lb Pop-Up Camper
  • I did some research on the Coleman Evolution, and it appears that a typical weight distribution system would work just fine with the layout of the tongue. If you have propane bottles on your pop-up, they might interfere with the chain hangers that fit around the top of the trailer frame. You could use a bolt-on hanger, part # RP58305 if this is the case. Due to the additional leverage that a weight distribution hitch places on the receiver, a bumper mounted receiver like # E-3S is NOT...

  • Trailer Brakes Do Not Work when Using Brake Controller But Do With a Car Battery
  • With a total of 4 brake assemblies, the brake controller power wire will need to be connected to at least a 20 amp circuit breaker and then to the battery. If it is on a lower capacity breaker or fused power source then the draw of the magnets could be too great and cause the brakes not to work. When connected directly to the battery the brakes can draw as much amperage as the battery is rated for. If there is any sort of short, corrosion, a bare wire touching metal somewhere, that...

  • How to Install A Brake Controller On A 1997 Chevrolet K2500
  • Some models of the 1997 Chevrolet K2500 do have the brake (blue) and hot lead (orange or red) wires already ran from under the hood to the end of the driver's side frame rail. However, these wires are hard to access and additional wire will still be needed. To install a brake controller on your 1997 Chevrolet K2500 you will need to have a 4-way trailer connector on the rear of your vehicle and then you will need to hardwire the brake controller with the Brake Controller 7 & 4 Way Installation...

  • Wire Gauge and Circuit Breaker Needed to Wire 12 Volt Accessory Circuit to Trailer Connector
  • To wire the 12 Volt accessory circuit on your 7-Way trailer connector, you should use wire no smaller than 12 gauge, although 10 gauge would be best. We offer the wire you need, the part # is 10-1-1, which is sold by the foot. I would recommend protecting that circuit with a 40 amp auto-reset inline circuit breaker, part # 9510. To wire the circuit, get a piece of the 10 gauge wire that will be long enough to reach the battery from the trailer connector on the rear of the vehicle. Attach...

  • What is the Overall Height of Timbren Suspension # TGMRASTBHD and # TGMFAST of a 1997 Chevy Astro
  • I called and spoke with my contact at Timbren and got the measurements for you. On the Timbren system, # TGMRASTBHD, the overall height of the assembled spring is 4-3/4 inches. It sits on the axle in place of the old bump stop. For system # TGMFAST, the overall height is 4-1/2 inches. These units sit on the control arm. I have included links to the installation instructions for both systems and a link to an FAQ article on Timbren systems for you.

  • Error Code P0420 After Replacing Exhaust Manifold Gasket and Using MagnaFlow Catalytic Converter
  • The most common things that can cause a P0420 error code are bad oxygen sensors, engine coolant temperature sensor malfunction (does not seem likely given what you have said), leaking exhaust, or a bad catalytic converter. Since you had a manifold gasket issue, it sounds like there could still be a leak in the system somewhere. This can happen with gasket replacement if any remnants of the old gasket were still on the block or manifold when the new one was installed. It could also...

  • Husky 5th Wheel Rails And Hitch Compatibility With 1997 Chevy C/K 2500 With 8 Foot Bed

The Husky Custom Base Rails and Installation Kit for 5th Wheel Trailer Hitches # HT31402-686 you referenced is a confirmed fit. These rails can work with many different industry standard size hitches for your 5th wheel trailer. The Husky Silver Series 16K S 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch - Slide Bar Jaw - 16,000 lbs # HT31313-31314 will fit that criteria and will be a good...

  • Does the Curt TriFlex Brake Controller Need to be Disconnected when Backing Up
  • You should not have to disconnect the Curt TriFlex Brake Controller, # C51140, when backing up. Brake controllers are designed to send power to the trailer brakes when you step on the brake pedal. When backing up, you typically step on the brake pedal several times, so many people simply disconnect the trailer connector from the tow vehicle before backing up. The Curt TriFlex brake controller is a proportional brake controller that uses an internal inertia sensor to sense the braking...

  • Troubleshooting Draw-Tite Activator part # 5100 That Functions Only When Manual Switch is Pressed
  • If your Draw-Tite Activator, part # 5100, does not work when you press the brake pedal in your truck, but does work when press the manual switch on the controller, then most likely something is wrong with the stop-light wire connection. The brake controller lights when you press the manual switch which means it is receiving power from the vehicle and sending power to the trailer brakes. Since it does not activate when you push the brake pedal, that means the brake controller is not receiving...

  • Hitch for 1997 Chevy K1500 That Wont Interfere w/ The Spare Tire In Any Way
  • According to my Curt representative, he had the # C13082 installed on his 1998 K 1500 with a 8 foot bed, and it did NOT interfere with the spare tire at all, and he used a slightly larger tire size than the 265/75-16. This is contrary to install instructions, which state that the spare might need to be repositioned slightly forward and it might not be the case on a short bed truck. The other Curt choice would be the # C15325 which I'm told would clear a stock spare tire. This hitch is a...

  • Front Hitch Recommendation for a 1997 Chevy 4x4 1500 Truck
  • The most economically priced front mount hitch for your 1997 Chevy 1500 4x4 that we carry is the Draw-Tite Hitch # 65005. You will be able to retain your factory tow hooks with this hitch also. I attached a link to all of the winch plates we offer also.

  • Installing a 7-Way Connector and Brake Controller on a 97 Chevy 2500
  • The 1997 model was not really prewired, although the necessary trailer lighting wires and possibly the brake controller output and 12-volt charge circuit wire should be located under the bed, usually above the spare tire or along the drivers side frame rail. There should be a green, yellow, brown, light blue, and light green wire. The wire functions are as follows. Green = right turn/brake light, yellow = left turn/brake, brown = running lights, light blue = 3rd brake light for a camper...

  • Replacement Ball-Plate Assembly for Friction Sway-Control System
  • For your Reese Sway Control System, I assume you are talking about the friction sway bar like the Pro Series Friction Sway Control Kit - Economy - by Draw-Tite, Reese and Hidden Hitch # 83660 and needing the pieces that attach to the trailer. For that, you will want the Replacement Ball-Plate Assembly for Reese Friction Sway-Control System # RP58062.

  • Will Draw-Tite Gooseneck Plate, # 49080, Fit On Reese Rails, # RP30035, And What Is Rating On Rails
  • The Draw-Tite Gooseneck Plate, # 49080, will fit on the Reese Universal Base Rails and Installation Kit, # RP30035. The gooseneck plate is rated for 25,000 lbs. The universal rails will be able to handle the 25,000 lbs. weight rating because the rails are designed to exceed the towing weight capacity of the vehicle it will fit. The gooseneck plate and the universal rails will both exceed the towing capacity of your 1997 Chevy Cheyenne truck. So the weight rating limit will be determined...

  • Trailer Brake Controller Shows Constant 12 Volt Power After Wires Corroded and Blew Fuse
  • You could have a bad controller or the original short that blew the fuse also damaged the controller. And you could also have another short or not totally fixed the original issue. To test the controller, cut the blue wire a few inches back from the controller. Then use your tester to test the end coming out of the controller. If it shows power without the brake or manual override then it is a bad controller and it will need to be replaced. Also check where the original problem occurred....

  • Which Tailgate Locks Will Fit a 1997 Chevy S-10 Pickup
  • We do have 2 tailgate lock options that will fit a 1997 Chevy S-10, but the Bully lock will not fit. You can use the Pop and Lock # PAL1600. I have included a link to the installation details for his lock for you. If your truck has powered door locks, you can use the Pop and Lock # PAL8150. Engaging the power door locks will also lock the tailgate. I have included links to the installation instructions for this lock as well.

  • Incorrectly Installed Brake Assemblies on Dual Axle Camper
  • If one set of brake assemblies is on the wrong side of the axle, it will lead to diminished braking performance and premature brake wear. Is it possible that the axle was removed at one time and reinstalled incorrectly? If you look at the photo I provided, you can see how the components of the brake assembly should be situated. The magnet should be at the bottom of the assembly, and the actuating arm for the brake shoes should be at the front (closest to front of trailer) of the brake...

  • Weight Distribution Recommendation for Use with a Summer Wind 24 ft RV
  • The best way to pick out a weight distribution system is to base it off of the loaded tongue weight of the setup when it is loaded and ready to tow. This figure also includes the weight of any cargo behind the rear axle of the tow vehicle. I attached a help article on determining tongue weight for you to check out as well. You will want the loaded tongue weight of your setup to fall right in the middle of the tongue weight range of the system you use. Your tongue weight could be anywhere...

  • Tailgate Assist Recommendation for a 1997 Chevy Silverado
  • We have a tailgate assist that has been confirmed as a fit for your 1997 Chevy Silverado, but the part # DZ43100 is not it. Instead you would want the part # 74211 which is a confirmed fit. This will actually make the tailgate feel lighter on the way up and down so it would be the setup I would want if it were me.

  • For your 1997 Chevrolet Astro Van 2WD we carry the Roadmaster XL Base Plates, # 3138-1. These base plates were designed specifically for your vehicle and include all necessary installation hardware. These base plates do not include a tow bar. I would recommend the Roadmaster Falcon 2 Tow Bar, # RM-520, that you referenced on our website. I have linked a demonstration video of this tow bar for you to check out. You will also need a few other items that I have listed below to flat tow...

  • Converting 4-Way Connector on 1997 Chevy Truck to 6-Way Square Connector on Dutchman Pop-Up Camper
  • If you only need the lighting circuits to function on your Dutchman pop-up camper, you can remove the existing 6-Way square connector and install the Draw-Tite 4-Way Trailer End Connector, part # 18004. This will plug into the 4-Way on your 1997 Chevrolet C/K truck and give you running light, brake lights, and turn signals. You would wire the 4-Way connector to the wires from the 6-Way, color to color. The white wire on the 4-Way would be grounded to the trailer frame. The brown wire...

  • Catalytic Converter Recommendation for a 1997 Chevy Tahoe
  • The most economically priced catalytic converter that will fit your 1997 Chevy Tahoe and is legal for use in California is the MagnaFlow Stainless Steel Catalytic Converter, part # MF45004. This is a universal fit item that Magnaflow says will work on the 1997 Chevy Tahoe. Most likely it would need to be welded in place of the current converter that is in your vehicle.

  • Adding a 7-Way Trailer Connector and Brake Controller to a 1997 Chevy K1500
  • You can add a 7-Way connector to your truck but it requires some hard wiring. If your 1997 Chevy K1500 does not already have any trailer connector you would start by installing a 4-Way, # 118315. Then you would need to install 4 and 7-Way installation kit # ETBC7. If your truck already has a 4-Way then you will not need to install a different one. I have included some links that show and explain the ETBC7 installation. The ETBC7 harness also includes the parts needed to wire up a brake...
