I just bought a '97 K1500 Suburban. LT package, tow package, indigo &
silver. The whole family absolutely loves it. It is a dream to drive.
We wanted something large enough for a gang of kids - my two and their
friends, with guts enough to pull the boat. This thing is fantastic. It
does have a couple of minor 'used vehicle' type issues I need to deal
with. Any help you can provide will be most appreciated.
1) It came with the factory tow package (Z82) but the wiring to the
trailer plug has been cut. There's a hole by the license plate where I
believe the plug should be and there's a section of the wiring harness
that's open ended and wrapped around the bumper support on the driver's
side. I'm guessing they go together but I haven't yet found a good
source to steer me in the right direction. I could use some help
returning this to factory standards. I could buy one of those pigtail
things and plug it in, but I'd prefer to return it to its correct
set-up. Any good web sites out there or other advice?
2) The cargo door doesn't lock or unlock using the remote.The switch
inside the cargo door doesn't lock it - I haven't tried to unlock it
using this switch. It locks only by using the key manually. It does
unlock using the switch on the driver's door. When using the key, it's
slow and difficult to turn. It feels like I'm moving an awful lot of
weight. Any experience out there with this?
Thanks folks for any help and I'm open to advice on what to watch out
for as I get used to it - any common problem areas or owner tricks
that'll enhance my Suburban experience.
Merry Christmas to all.
