If the trans. is an automatic, the prob. might be in the trans. shift interlock solenoid. This is a solenoid that prevents shifting into gear unless your foot is on the brake pedal. The solenoid is located on the steering column or under the center console on floor shift models. Check to see if you have any connectors unplugged at these locations, if you do, find where it goes and your problem may go away.

Where do you hook the brake light switch wire on a trailer brake controller on a 1998 Chevy pickup with a tow package?

Start from the rear where the factory trailer lights wiring harness is, or from the taillights/brakelights themselves. Follow the wire (I think it should be blue) from the harness or taillights to the wiring harness as it runs to the (driver's side) under hood fuse panel. Again, it should be blue in color. On a Tekonsha brake controller you'll hook the red wire to it anywhere along that wire. Hope that helps. According to http://www.4door.com (This site also has pictures for installation) there are two options for the 1998 Tahoes: The option UY7 trailer harness is for heavy-duty towing applications. A 30-amp fused battery feed wire and auxiliary circuit routes from the cowl-mounted junction block, along the body side rail, to the rear bumper crossmember. The harness for the brake/parking lamps is spliced from the rear lamp harness. The harness is at the rear bumper crossmember. A plastic strap binds the harness. Tape wrapped around the harness prevents short circuits. The 8 wires have the following functions: • Orange -- The 30-amp fused battery feed • Blue -- An auxiliary circuit for electric trailer brakes • Brown -- The taillamps and the license lamps • Light green -- The backup lamps • Dark green -- The right turn signal and the stoplamp • Yellow -- The left turn signal and the stoplamp • White (heavy gage) -- Ground • White (light gage) -- The center high-mounted stop lamp The UY7 option does not include a connector at the end of the harness. A qualified technician must wire the connector following production. # Attach the trailer harness wiring to the trailer • Bending • Binding • Breaking • The harness drags on the ground. # Strap the harness wiring to the vehicle in a manner that allows slack in order to prevent the following conditions: # Secure with tape or straps the trailer portion of the harness to the trailer tongue in order to prevent the harness from dragging on the ground. 4.1. Wrap the harness together. 4.2. Bind the harness with a tie strap in order to avoid damage. 4.3. Store the harness behind the rear bumper on the fuel tank. 4.4. Strap the harness with a band or a tie strap. # Secure the harness when the harness is not in use. The second wiring harness option is the UY1 camper wiring harness. The UY1 harness is under the vehicle. The harness is inside the frame rail. The harness is even with the front of the pickup box on the driver's side. The UY1 harness is for the brake/parking lamps. The harness has an auxiliary power feed. The wires have the following functions: • Dark blue -- A 30-amp fused auxiliary power circuit. The other end of the wire is taped to the wiring near the junction block on the cowl. • Dark green -- The right turn signal and the stoplamp • Light green -- The backup lamps • Yellow -- The left turn signal and the stoplamp • Brown -- The taillamps • White -- Ground # Route the trailer harness wiring between the frame and the bumper, or the camper and the body, in such a manner that slack remains in the harness in order to prevent the following conditings: # • Bending • Binding • Breaking • The harness drags on the ground. # Tape or strap the trailer portion of the harness (if used) to the vehicle in order to prevent the harness from dragging. 3.1. Wrap the harness together. 3.2. Bind the harness with a tie strap in order to prevent damage. # Secure the harness when the wiring is not in use.

How do you replace ignition switch on 68 Buick?

Disconnect the negative terminal from the battery to isolate the electrical system. This will prevent electrical shock. The ignition switch is inside the steering column. Remove the steering shroud to access the ignition switch. You will need a Phillips-head screwdriver to separate the shroud and expose the column. Unscrew the screws holding the shroud together and pull them out. Lift up on the top half of the shroud and separate it from the column. Then pull down on the bottom portion and work it loose from the column.RemovingLocate the ignition switch settled along the steering column, and unscrew the small screws that are holding it to the column. Pull the wiring harness out of the back of the ignition. The harness will have a tab that you separate from the sides to pull away evenly from the switch.InstallationPlace the new switch where the old switch was positioned. Start the screws to ensure the switch is properly aligned. Tighten the screws with the Phillips-head screwdriver. Now attach the wiring harness to the new ignition switch. Push the harness into the receiving end of the switch until it clicks. Tighten the steering console shroud around the column. Reconnect the battery so you can start the Buick and ensure it cranks.
