2007 Chevrolet Questions and Answers


  • What is the Factory Wiring Harness Color Code for a 2007 Chevy Silverado
  • The colors that GM typically uses for their factory trailer wiring are as follows - Dark Green - Right Turn/Brake Lights Yellow - Left Turn/Brake Lights Brown - Tail Lights White - Ground Light Green - Backup Lights Blue - Electric Brakes Red/Black - 12 Volt Power We had a 2007 Chevy Silverado with the factory trailer wiring on our lot, so I went out and verified that it had the same color code. I also noticed a white tag on the wiring harness that listed the functions of...

  • How to Determine the Difference Between the New and Classic Body Styles for a 2007 Chevy Silverado
  • The easiest way to tell the difference between the 2007 Chevy Silverado Classic and New Body Style is the tail gate or the tail lights. The new body style will have a large Chevy bow tie emblem in the center of the tail gate. It will also have red tail light assemblies. Take a look at the parts I have linked that show the new body style and the classic body style. If you have a classic model, you will need to use # VGM-99-4000. I do not believe the new body applied to the 2500 and 3500...

  • Will the Addition of Weight Distribution Increase Towing Capacity for a 2007 Chevrolet Colorado
  • Your salesman is correct in that a weight distribution system will, in most cases, allow a vehicle to tow additional weight, but the amount of additional weight is not a static number and is vehicle specific. You should check your owners manual, or the vehicle dealer, for hitch specifications for the Max Gross trailer weight allowable when using a weight distributing hitch. I checked the online owners manual for a 2007 Chevrolet Colorado. If this is the the vehicle you will be towing...

  • What Percent of a 5th Wheel Trailer King Pin Should be the Tongue Weight
  • A basic rule to go by is that the tongue weight of a 5th wheel trailer is about 20 percent of the gross trailer weight. Based on the 5th wheel trailer dry weight of 13,400 pounds the dry hitch weight is correct at 2,535 pounds. Just under the 20 percent of the 5th wheel dry weight or precisely 18.9 percent. The tongue weight of the 5th wheel trailer at 20 percent is 2,680 pounds based on a dry weight of 13,400 pounds. So as long as you keep your tongue weight at 3,000 pounds or below...

  • Tow Capacity of 4x4 2007 Chevy Silverado Classic with 5.3L and Transmission Cooler Recommendation
  • You will want to first consult your vehicle owners manual but based on my research your truck has a standard towing capacity of 7,500 pounds and max towing capacity of 10,500 pounds. The max is usually either with the truck properly equipped or when using weight distribution. Your owners manual should be able to shed some light on this. Even with the truck properly equipped, and/or using weight distribution you will still be near the maximum of the truck. If a more capable truck is...

  • Adapter to Go From 3 Inch Hitch of 2017 Ford F-250 to 2 inch HItch
  • If the truck you buy does have a 3 inch hitch installed on it the Super Titan Adapter Part # 38735 would be the correct adapter as it will slide into the hitch and provide you with a 2 inch hitch. A standard hitch pin that you would have for the 3 inch hitch would be all you need to secure the adapter like part # 58388. Then for a pin for the 2 inch hitch you would want the part # PC3.

  • Aluminum Vs. Steel Trailer Wheels
  • The big advantage aluminum has over steel is corrosion resistance and being lighter weight. Steel is a stronger metal, but if the aluminum wheel has the rating to work for you setup it would be a better choice. We do not carry Carlisle brand tires. All things being equal between the size and load rating I am sure the Carlisle brand would be similar to the Karrier tires. Going to a higher load range certainly would not hurt, but if your trailer does fine with load range C and you have...

  • Transmission Cooler Recommendation for a 2007 Chevy Silverado 4x4 with Tow Package and 5.3 Liter
  • The ideal operating temperature for the transmission and fluid is between 160 and 200 degrees Fahrenheit. Transmission fluid cannot be overcooled, so adding an aftermarket cooler would be a good idea as factory coolers can be inadequate for towing applications. The Derale Transmission Cooler, # D13502, is one of the recommended coolers for the 2007 Chevy Silverado with the 5.3 liter engine. Since you are towing upwards of 9,000 pounds, I would recommend a higher capacity cooler like...

  • What is the Towing Capacity for a 2007 Chevy Suburban 1500 LTZ 4×4 5.3 Liter
  • First, the trailer should have a sticker or plate on the front of the frame or tongue somewhere that lists its capacity. that is the capacity you will need to go by for the trailer. You are likely correct that it will a capacity over 10,000 pounds but you will still want to be sure. I checked the owners manual for the 2007 Chevy Suburban 5.3 liter. For a 1500 4x4 with 3.73 rear end the maximum capacity is 6,700 pounds. With 4.10 rear end it is 7,700 pounds. For an extended model with...

  • Weight Distribution System for a 2007 Chevy Suburban Towing a 7,500 Pound Camper
  • You are limited by the lowest rated factor in your towing system. In your case, the limiting factor is your hitch, which is rated for 5,000lbs without using weight distribution. If you do use weight distribution, you'd be limited to the vehicle's 7000 lb towing capacity (if that's the case.) Without using weight distribution your hitch does not have a high enough capacity rating to tow your camper safely. If the vehicle tow capacity is indeed 7000 lbs, I would recommend a weight distribution...

  • Power Distribution Stud Nut Sizes for Installing a Brake Controller on a 2007 Chevy Silverado
  • GM does not supply the attaching nuts required to secure the wires to the studs. These can be obtained locally. You will need (1) M6 x 1.0 nut, # 185916 and (1) M8 x 1.25 nut, # 185917. I have attached an FAQ for you that may also help.

  • Determining the Correct Replacement Brake Assemblies for 1996 Airstream Excella
  • To determine what size brake assemblies you have you can measure the diameter of the mounted brake shoes on the trailer or measure the inside diameter of the brake drum. I am including pictures of where to measure on the brake assembly and the brake drum. You will also want to measure the width of the brake shoe lining to get the correct width brake assembly. You will want to get the bolt pattern of the brake mounting flange on your axle and if it is a 4-bolt flange or a 5-bolt flange....

  • Installation Instructions for Reese Dual Cam Weight Distribution System
  • Set-up of a Reese dual cam weight distribution system like # RP66083 is shown in the linked video. The complete written instructions are also linked for you. It is important to know your trailer's fully-loaded road-ready tongue weight (TW) when selecting a system. The spring bars need to be selected based on the actual weight load on them, which consists of the trailer's TW plus the weight of anything in the truck bed that sits behind the rear axle, such as a cooler or generator.

  • How To Replace Day Time Running Lights on 2007 Chevrolet Tahoe
  • I checked on how to change the daytime running light bulbs on your 2007 Chevrolet Tahoe. The removal of the headlamp assembly is as follows. 1. Remove the six bolts on top of the grill. 2. Remove the two (7mm) screws, three push pins, and two pop style pins in the wheel well. 3. Pull the wheel well lining towards you and remove the two (10mm) bolts that go upwards into the fender, this will release the bumper mounting bracket. 4. Remove the three (10mm) bolts holding the headlamp...

  • Comparing the Chinook and G10 Bike Racks for a 2007 Chevy Equinox
  • The Swagman Chinook # S64683 and G10 # S64682 are similar but there are some key differences. The G10 uses 2 rails with 2 wheel cradles each so it theoretically is compatible with more bike styles. Other than that they operate the same way. The XTC # S64670 does not tilt down so it would not really be comparable to either of the above bike racks. Also, there is no guarantee that you would be able to open the rear hatch on the vehicle with the bikes loaded on either of the top two...

  • Replacement 7-Way Trailer Plug Needed for a 2007 Chevrolet Silverado Pickup
  • If you have the 2007 Chevrolet Pickup, Silverado New Body style, like the one in the video link below, then the Twist-in, 7-Pole, RV-Style Trailer Connector for Chevy and GMC Vehicles, item # PK11916, is the correct replacement. If you have the 2007 Chevrolet Pickup, Silverado Classic body style then the Pollak Replacement 7-Pole, RV-Style Trailer Connector Socket, item # PK11893, is the correct replacement for your vehicle. The Pollak 7- and 4-Pole Trailer Connector Socket w/ Mounting...

  • Brake Controller Installation on 2007 Chevy Tahoe
  • The tow package wiring is located under the dash above where your left knee would be as you were sitting at the wheel. Look for a wiring harness with a white tag on it. GM no longer has a connector, you'd just need to wire the controller directly to the tow package wiring. The red tow package wire supplies 12-volt power, and connects to the black wire on your brake controller. The light blue tow package wire attaches to the red wire on the controller, the dark blue tow package wire connects...

  • Will the Use of a 2-1/2 Inch to 2 inch Trailer Hitch Reducer Sleeve Reduce the Hitch Capacity
  • You have a couple of options. The best thing to do would be to use a ball mount that fits in your hitch. The reason is that you will not have to worry about a reducer sleeve fitting, any capacity reduction, or adding another component in the system. For 2-1/2 inch receivers we have # RP45322, or # RP45323 for an 18,000 pound fixed ball mount. The other option is to use a reducer, # 58102. The hitch capacity should not be dramatically changed so if it is rated to tow the 13,000 pounds...

  • How Many Locking Lug Nuts are Recommended Per Trailer Wheel
  • One locking lug nut per wheel would be the most efficient way to do it. These are sold in pairs because each axle has two wheels (one per wheel). If a thief was willing to dedicate the time to defeat one locking lugnut, a second one would not make a big enough difference to convince them to stop, so it would be a bit of waste to have 2 per wheel.

  • Fuse Location for a Trailer Brake Controller on a 2007 Chevy Silverado
  • The fuse for the brake controller on a 2007 Chevy Silverado (New Body Style) is located at the front of the power distribution box under the hood of the truck. There will be 2 studs at the front of the box. The fuses locations closest to these two studs power the 7-Way 12 volt circuit and the brake controller. If facing the engine from the front of the truck, the location on the left side should be for the brake controller. I have included a link to an FAQ article that should help. If...

  • Recommendation for Complete Towing Setup on a 2007 Chevrolet Uplander 3.9 Liter
  • I did some research on your 2007 Chevrolet Uplander and found that the maximum recommended towing capacity for this vehicle is 3,500 pounds. If your trailer is 2,600 pounds empty, you would be limited to 900 pounds or less of cargo. If 900 pounds of cargo sounds about right, you will need to check your hitch capacities and make sure it is capable of towing 3,500 pounds. You may find that a weight distribution system is needed to safely tow the maximum capacity with your vehicle. You...

  • Weight Distribution for 2007 Chevy Tahoe LTZ Towing 2012 Titan Primo 2-horse Trailer
  • If your old system was not properly adjusted or was overloaded, it would explain why not enough weight was transferred to the front vehicle axle. Generally speaking, tilting the weight distribution head back toward the trailer will distribute more weight to the front axle of the tow vehicle, as will using fewer links in a chain-hanger type system. Your old system might indeed still be usable, if its capabilities are compatible with the weight of your trailer. Consult the set-up instructions...

  • Recommended Trailer Hitch With Extension For 2007 Chevrolet Silverado With Camper Installed
  • I recommend the TorkLift SuperHitch Original Trailer Hitch Receiver, part # TLC1205 for your Silverado if you have an 8-ft bed on your truck. If you have a 6-1/2 ft bed the hitch I recommend is part # TLC1204. As far as the extension you will need to measure the distance from the hitch pin hole to the end of the camper to see what length extension you will need. We offer different length extensions like part # TLE1524 for a 24 inch extension. For a 32 inch extension I recommend part...

  • Parts Needed to Flat Tow a 2007 Chevy HHR Behind a Motor Home
  • I looked up an online version of the owners manual for a 2007 Chevy HHR and found that it can be flat towed. It gives the following steps: First set the parking brake. Then turn the ignition key to ACC to unlock the steering wheel. Next shift into neutral. Then release the parking brake. You also have to pull fuse 8 from the floor console fuse block to prevent draining the battery. The manual also states to not exceed 65 miles per hour. Any time you ever have a flat towing question, you...

  • How to Install Weight Distribution Snap-Up Brackets on Frame of V-Nose Trailer
  • The trunnion bars used by the Curt # 17302 are 30-5/8 inches long. The chain hanging brackets would mount so that they're centered roughly 29 inches rearward from the center of the trailer ball. If the V-nose of your trailer covers the top of the trailer frame at that location, no worries. You can simply use a bolt on chain hanger, like part # C17005. Instead of flipping the hanger lever up to take the slack out of the chains, you'd use the trailer jack to raise the trailer tongue...

  • Brake Controller Wiring for a 2007 Chevrolet Suburban
  • The 2007 Suburban does not require a wiring adapter. The tow package wiring is easily accessible and would wire directly to the brake controller. The wiring is located above the emergency brake pedal, and is taped to a wiring harness. Look for a white tag hanging off of the wiring. The four wires are red, dark blue, light blue and white. The red tow package wire connects to the black wire on the controller, the dark blue tow package wire connects to the blue brake controller wire, the light...

  • How to Bypass Integrated Brake Controller in a 2007 Chevy Silverado New Body
  • I attached a help article that covers the entire process of installing a brake controller in a 2007 Chevy Silverado with an integrated brake controller. Basically you will wire the P3 part # 90195 to the wire bundle that is under the dash near the brake pedal. I also attached a picture that shows where this is. There are some connections that will need to be made at the rear of the vehicle and under the hood as well.

  • What is the factory Cutout Bumper when Choosing a Trailer Hitch for a 2007 Chevy Silverado 2500
  • I did some checking and basically the cutout bumper is the regular factory bumper. The Curt hitch, # C15312, will fit up tighter and a little more recessed, apparently the same way the factory hitch does if it were installed. Some people like the hitch a little more tucked up and others don't. If you want a little more room around the receiver then I recommend going with B&W hitch # BWHDRH25189.

  • How to Tell Left and Right Side of a New Dexter Axle without Taking Off the Hubs or Brakes
  • If you look at the backs of the brake assemblies there should be a hole where the magnet wires come out and a little opaque plastic strap. So if you are looking at the back of the assembly and those items are on the left then it is the left side (drivers side). If on the right then it is the right side (passengers side). Or if you are unsure look for the Dexter stamp on the back of the brake assembly. There should be a part number there and I could look that up and tell you if it is...

  • Recommended Weight Distribution System for 27-Foot 7800-lb Trailer with 680-lb Dry Hitch Weight
  • The key to selecting a weight distribution (WD) and sway control system for your 27-foot trailer is to measure your fully-loaded ready-to-tow tongue weight (TW) using a scale like the Sherline # 5780 or by one of the methods shown in the linked article. You also need to add in the weight of anything in the truck that sits behind the rear axle, such as a generator or loaded cooler. You want this total TW to fall into the middle of the operating range for a WD system so that it can move some...
