Help installing a break controller in a 1997 Chevy Tahoe

I have a Prodigee break controller that I need to install in a 1997 Chevy Tahoe. The electric controls are already installed for the trailer, but no one ever put in a break controller. We are having troubles getting to the wiring to put it in and cannot find instructions anywhere on how to get it installed.

Depending on what type of trailer you have, a blown lightbulb on one marker could kill them all (like the old Christmas light strings). Look at those, and make sure your ground is good.

SOURCE: Cant fold down the rear seat in our 1997 Chevy Tahoe

in the middle of the seat cushions in the back of the seat there is a little loop, pull that loop forward and that will have the seat's bottom pulled down to the floor agains the back of the front seats. Next simply apply a lil muscle to the back of the back seats and the seats should fold down nicely into the open space. Be sure to remove the headrests so the seat will fold all the way down. post any issues u may have.

SOURCE: Have prodigy trailer brake control Have

When installing the trailer break controller, 4 things must be considered carefully and objectively . 1.Safety regarding the mounting of the controller with respect to the drivers ability to control the vehicle without any hindrance whatsoever . 2.The dirvers ease of access (and control) of the coltroller while actually driving.....not sitting in the driveway....and lastly.... 3. The expected and assured 100% faith in the controllers ability (by the driver) to function without failure (no exceptions allowed) AND as designed to function (not ***-u-med), by properly mounting the unit and performing the correct electrical aspects of the installation without "shortcutting or jerry rigging" (no exceptions allowed)
4. The trailer brakes themselves. Ie. Shoes, drums, actuators, mechanical and electrical components etc. And last.....but too often forgotten....axle bearings maintenance / checkups / and tires condition and proper air pressure attained with a reliable tire guage....Did I mention checking the trailer lights functions ??? Good Luck...Happy Safe Motoring..

I have a 1997 chevy tahoe and put a 2005 chevy tahoe motor in and my gas mileage is only 8 to 10 miles per gallon, why?


As these are two different motors with different type control systems involved, did you mean that you installed a replacement motor that was remanufactured or purchased new in 2005?

Can you describe how to replace the side mirror glass on a 2005 chevy tahoe. Hopefully I don't need to replace the whole assembly, just remove and replace the glass with backing.


Ok Then what will need to be done is that the assembly will need to come out. The backing is held by some pins or screws and will need to be removed. Now was backing is installed the glass can be installed afterwards as to avoid breaking mirror during installation.

Installation instructions


Correct, there are factory install holes/spots on the frames as the run along the side of the Tahoe under the door locations. If they had not been used they may appear only as holes in the from that the running board hardware will mount into. They are preinstalled so that you do not need to drill any new holes in the frame itself.

If all else fails, head on over to your nearest use car dealer and peek underneath an existing Tahoe. Some Chevy dealers may also have similar vehicles on their lots. Best of all there's no charge for peeking.
