There is a Brake light/Park interlock switch on the end of the steering column that is on top of the rod that goes into the brake master cyl that is either out of adjustment or needs to be replaced. If you start the engine and can't shift out of park, if you shut the engine off, you can step on the brake and shift to neutral, then start the engine until you get the interlock switch adjusted/replaced. I have been starting my 97 Silverado like that several times (only does it when the cab gets over 100 degrees sitting out in the Florida sun) for the last two years.

I got a 96 Chevrolet C1500. Can I put that transmission on a 4wd Tahoe same year? Would that work?


if its a 4l60e which it should be and the tahoe has same motor and is a 1500 series it will bolt up ------- but the tail shaft (output shaft) and drive shaft are different --the tail shaft of the transmission would have to be changed out to the 4wd version to tie in the transfer case for the 4wd system same with the drive dhaft would not be able to be used from the c1500 if the tahoe tailshaft is not damaged just switch it out to the other transmission and good to go

Not getting any brake fluid to rear drums to a 1997 Chevy Tahoe


Must bleed air from brake lines. Done so with help of a friend to pump brake pedal a few times and hold while you loosen and immediately retighten the bleeder screw located right where the line enters drum on the back. Use care, as fluid will start to drain out as air is eliminated in line. Do this repeated times. When only fluid escapes you are finished!

Replaced brake switch now won't go out of park 1997 chevy tahoe what do i need to do?


do the brake lights come on now with the new brake switch? Why did you replace the brake switch? It sounds like the switch is not being actuated or does not have a good electrical connection. You cannot move the shifter out of park unless the brake switch indicates the brakes are depressed. Whether or not the brake lights are functioning is a good indicator of whether the switch is working or not.

1997 suburban C1500. I replaced the Front pads


Hi,
You will have to check each brake caliper for pressure when the brake pedal is applied. You may have a sticking piston in one of the brake calipers.

This will cause a spongy pedal.

Hope this helps,let me know how you get on.

Thanks
Jason

Electrical...Maybe brake sensor 1997 Tahoe


The radio may have an auto volume function that may have accidetly been tripped. As far as the transmission issue, it might be an electrical problem or it could be something mechanical near the shifter in the steering column. If you have to turn the wheel to get it to work then that is where I would start first. make sure that there is nothing that would impede the shifter from working properly.

93 suburban Will start, won't shift out of park, will not work when vehicle is shut off either, trying that neutral starting method. Just wont shift out of Park???


Not sure if your truck is new enough but...... Did you always have to press the brake to shift from park? If so check the brake lights if they don't work the interlock system doesn't recognize that you have pressed the brake pedal.If they don't work start with the brake light fuse(some are labeled stop lamps) If it's good the switch could be faulty, It is located under the dash near the top of the pedal assembly.
hope this helps!

Try this before you do any repairs or sp[end any other money. Make sure that vehicle is on a flat surface. Start vehicle and Push down on brakes while holding brake put vehicle in neutral. Still holding brakes in NEUTRAL, Engage 4x4, it should work. If it doesn't get back to me. Good Luck. If I fixed ya leave me a FIX YA comment
