This catalog is not updated during the model year and should not be used for
ordering purposes. It is intended as a source of basic information. All illustrations
and specifications in this literature are based on the latest product information
available at the time of publication. General Motors reserves the right to make
changes at any time without notice. For further details, consult your local dealer.
Care must be taken during customer installation of equipment and wiring to
ensure that all holes drilled in the body are corrosion protected, properly sealed
and that vehicle wiring harnesses, piping or other components have not been
displaced or damaged. Aftermarket equipment installers must be mindful of
applicable Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards. This information can be
obtained directly from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
Adding non-dealer accessories or making modifications to the vehicle can affect
vehicle performance, aerodynamics, and overall top speed.
These vehicles are equipped with an air bag system. The air bag system in your
police vehicle includes frontal driver and passenger air bags, front seat back side
impact air bags, front knee air bags or knee bolsters and side curtain air bags.
Customer installed equipment such as security barriers behind the front seats
should not be mounted so that the barrier ends are within the side air bag
deployment zones. The sensors and other components for the air bag system
must not be relocated to accommodate the installation of customer furnished
equipment; please refer to the service manual for sensor and other component
locations. For information concerning instrument panel top pad mounted
equipment and air bag system deployment zones, see the air bag information
section in this catalog and the vehicle owners manual.
A note about vehicle alterations by independent suppliers: This catalog shows
pictures of vehicles that have been altered or upfitted with equipment or
components supplied to Chevrolet or its dealers by independent suppliers.
Chevrolet is not responsible for the safety or quality of design features, materials
or workmanship of any alterations by a supplier.

NOTE: Due
to specific requirements for performance durability and safety, GM recommends only the
original equipment tires for replacement
Tire Plies = Tread 6 ply; 2 Polyester, 2 Steel, 2 Nylon, Sidewall, 2 Polyester
Tire Chains - If the vehicle has 265/65R18, P265/65R18, P275/55R20, or P285/45R22 size tires, do not use tire
chains. There is not enough clearance. Tire chains used on a vehicle without the proper amount of clearance can cause
damage to the brakes, suspension, or other vehicle parts. The area damaged by the tire chains could cause loss of
control and a crash. Use another type of traction device only if its manufacturer recommends it for the vehicle's tire size
combination and road conditions. Follow that manufacturer's instructions. To avoid vehicle damage, drive slow and
readjust or remove the traction device if it is contacting the vehicle. Do not spin the wheels. If traction devices are used,
install them on the rear tires. If the vehicle has P255/70R17 or P265/70R17 size tires, use tire chains only where legal and
only when necessary. Use chains that are the proper size for the tires. Install them on the rear tires only. Do not use
chains on the front tires. Tighten them as tightly as possible with the ends securely fastened. Drive slowly and follow the
chain manufacturer's instructions. If the chains contact the vehicle, stop and retighten them. If the contact continues,
slow down until it stops. Driving too fast or spinning the wheels with chains on will damage the vehicle.

VEHICLE LOAD LIMITS
This information is intended for those who intend to install additional equipment on the police
vehicle after it has left the factory, and for those who will be driving and loading the vehicle with
passengers and/or cargo. Two labels on your vehicle show how much weight it was designed to
carry, the Tire and Loading Information label and the Certification/Tire label. These labels are
attached to your vehicle and give you the maximum load capacity, the Gross Vehicle Weight
Rating (GVWR) and the Gross Axle Weight Rating (GAWR) for your vehicle. See "Vehicle Load
Limits" in the owner manual Index for additional loading information.
The following guidelines can help you with proper loading and load distribution when installing
additional equipment on the Tahoe Police Package.
WARNING
DO NOT LOAD THE VEHICLE ANY HEAVIER THAN THE GROSS VEHICLE WEIGHT RATING
(GVWR), NOR EITHER THE MAXIMUM FRONT OR REAR GROSS AXLE WEIGHT RATING
(GAWR). THIS CAN CAUSE SYSTEMS TO BREAK AND CHANGE THE WAY THE VEHICLE
HANDLES. THIS COULD CAUSE LOSS OF CONTROL AND A CRASH. OVERLOADING CAN
ALSO SHORTEN THE LIFE OF THE VEHICLE.
ADDING EQUIPMENT TO YOUR VEHICLE
Before adding accessories or equipment to your police vehicle, there are some things you need to know
•
The police vehicle's maximum capacity weight (payload). The weight of your police
vehicle, including a full tank of fuel but without a driver and passengers.
• The weight of items you plan on adding to your police vehicle, like roof mounted light
bar(s), push bumpers, security barrier(s), rear storage organizer, highway flares, fire
extinguishers, weapons, ammunition, radios, and video equipment.
• The weight and number of passengers you intend to carry in your vehicle.
• The total weight of any additional cargo you intend to carry in your vehicle.
When planning your vehicle equipment installation remember not to exceed the Gross Vehicle
Weight Rating (GVWR) or the Gross Axle Weight Rating (GAWR) of the front or rear axles. To
keep the available load weight less than the vehicle capacity weight, you may need to limit
the number of passengers you carry in your vehicle or change your choice of additional equipment.
Towing a trailer may change the vehicle payload capacity.
CENTER OF GRAVITY (CG)
A vehicle's center of gravity is an imaginary location inside the vehicle and is a balance point for
the vehicle mass as it moves down the road. The police vehicle's center of gravity, before you add
a load and passengers, is approximately midway between the center of the axles, up from the
ground to just below the front window, and between the driver and passenger. Equipment location
and weight on the vehicle's center of gravity is important to keep in mind when planning an
installation. Heavy equipment should be positioned as low and as far forward in the rear load
compartment as possible. Try to mount the equipment below the bottom of the side windows.
Refer to the Loading Zone chart and diagram to help with your installation plan.
A procedure to make the necessary measurements and formulas to calculate the vehicle
longitudinal, lateral and vertical position of the center of gravity can be found in the GM
Coachbuilders Manual.
Equipment required to conduct the measurements for calculating the center of gravity are:
• Weight scales of sufficient capacity to measure the vehicle weight at each wheel.
• A post type hoist or other means to safely elevate the front of the vehicle to at least an
angle of 20 degrees above horizontal.
See your GM dealer to get more information about this coachbuilder procedure.
Keeping the center of gravity midway between the axles is also important to provide proper
braking performance. About half the total vehicle weight on each axle is recommended.
Weigh your vehicle after the additional equipment has been installed to determine the actual
weight of your vehicle. Weigh the vehicle with a full tank of fuel and without passengers. You may
need to put a limit on how many people or other equipment you can carry inside your vehicle after
the additional equipment has been installed.
Note: See loading zone weight chart and diagram

WIRING PROVISIONS FOR 12-VOLT BATTERY POWER SUPPLY
The vehicle is equipped with wiring provisions for connecting 12-volt battery
power to customer installed equipment. Refer to the following information
when adding electrical accessories that will use the 12-volt power supply
circuits connected to the vehicle’s electrical system. A wiring harness is
located below the instrument panel (IP) near the center of the vehicle and
another connection point is located in the left rear of the cargo area.
The 12-volt battery power for customer connection is supplied from the
Primary vehicle battery via control relays to four blunt cut 30-amp circuit
wires and from an Auxiliary battery via one blunt cut 50 -amp circuit wire in
the harness under the center IP. A blunt cut ground wire is also included in
the front harness. A 100-amp Rear Electrical Center (REC) stud is located in
the left rear cargo area.
The Primary battery is located at the right rear of the engine compartment
and the Auxiliary Battery is located at the left front of the engine
compartment. The Auxiliary Battery is connected to the vehicle charging
system via a relay which is closed when the ignition is ON.
Four 30-amp control relays and 30-amp fuses are located in the Underhood
Electrical Center (UEC).
Also in the UEC are two 5-amp fuses which connect control relay coils 1 & 2
and control relay coils 3 & 4 to the UEC primary battery bus. Refer to the
UEC label showing the 5-amp fuse locations 69 and 77, labeled "R/C" for
Run/Crank power and locations 70 and 78, labeled "V/Batt" for primary
battery power.
The 5-amp fuses for the control relays can be positioned to operate all
relays from the ignition buss or primary battery buss or one pair on ignition
and one pair on battery. See also Bulletin #118 at gmupfitter.com.
The four control relays are operated via separate blunt-cut wires located in
the harness under the instrument panel and are intended to be connected
via customer switching to vehicle ground.

wire for customer-furnished switching to turn the module on and off.
The flasher control wire is part of the blunt-cut upfitter harness
coiled under the instrument panel in the front passenger side foot
well. The flashing module is located on the rear edge of the right
hand upper radiator support.
The headlamp flashing module is activated by the application of 12
volts to a dark green wire in the upfitter harness connector labeled
6J3. When activated, the headlamp high beams and the high beam
instrument cluster indicator will flash alternately at 3.0 flashes per
second. When the flashing module is turned on, the module sends a
signal to the BCM which alternately flashes the stop lamps and
backup lamps at the same flash rate as the headlamps. Depressing
the brake pedal will override the stop lamp flashing and placing the
transmission in Reverse will override the backup lamps flashing.
Rear door locking rods are disabled. Rear door locks are inoperable at

AIRBAGS FAQ
Can specialty vehicle equipment (e.g. radar devices, video
cameras, computers, meters, radio trees, shotguns, etc.) still
be mounted in cars with passenger side airbags?
Yes, but care must be taken to mount the equipment outside
of the deployment zone. Airbags inflate with great force
and will interact with any object in the deployment zone.
Therefore, to reduce the risk of injury to vehicle occupants,
GM recommends that the air deployment zone be kept free
of any equipment. If a piece of equipment were to become
dislodged it could strike an occupant in the vehicle and result
in injury. The likelihood of an object becoming dislodged is
influenced by many factors, including the proximity of the
object to the inflatable restraint, the size and shape of the
object and the means by which the object is secured to the
vehicle. In addition to these factors, the trajectory and velocity
of the dislodged object can be influenced by the type and
severity of vehicle crash.
Objects that are in the deployment zone, but do not become
dislodged by an inflating airbag can still affect the performance
of the airbag. For example, such objects could tear the fabric
or affect the shape of the airbag, thus reducing the ability of
the bag to provide restraint.
Is it possible to shield equipment that is installed in the
passenger side frontal airbag deployment zone in a manner
that will allow full and safe airbag deployment?
Due to the complexity of the influencing variables, GM is
unable to evaluate the potential for shielding expected
equipment configurations in all accident scenarios in order
to assure that the airbag performance would be unaffected.
While shielding may protect certain equipment from being
damaged or dislodged, it may also negatively affect the
inflation characteristics of the airbag. The airbag’s shape,
inflation angle, fold pattern, and inflation rate and pressure
are developed to maximize the protection capability of the
inflatable restraint system. Therefore, GM cannot recommend
the placement of any equipment in the deployment zone,
even if it is shielded to protect it from damage.
Front airbag systems and instrument panel mounted
equipment.
Passenger airbags in GM vehicles deploy in different ways
depending upon the type of vehicle and the particular
instrument panel design.
In some vehicles, the passenger airbag deploys through a
discrete door located on the top surface of the instrument
panel (top-mount airbag systems). In other vehicles, the
passenger airbag deploys through a discrete door mounted
on the vertical rearward surface of the instrument panel,
above the glove box door (mid-mount airbag system). With
these types of top mount and mid-mount passenger airbag
systems, the top pad of the instrument panel remains in place
during deployment.
Some GM passenger airbag systems deploy from beneath the
instrument panel top pad. These are considered 3/4-mount
airbag systems with a “deployable top pad.” The entire
instrument panel top pad is the “deployment door” from
under which the inflation airbag emerges. When an airbag
deployment is commanded, the forces from the inflating
passenger airbag push up on the instrument panel top pad,
releasing special fasteners across the rearward edge of the
top pad. This allows the top pad to rotate upward so that the
passenger airbag may emerge. The top pad rotates upward
to open widest at the right hand side, and is usually forced
upward into contact with the windshield on the right hand
side of the vehicle during a deployment.
Instrument panel top mounted special equipment, such as
a radar antenna and control unit or video camera must be
positioned to the left of the vehicle center line. This equipment
must be mounted as low as possible and securely fastened to
the top pad to avoid being dislodged in the event of a crash
and possible airbag deployment. In the process of securely
fastening special equipment to the top, DO NOT fasten down
the top pad itself to any other vehicle component such as the
cluster trim plate. As described above, the top pad rotates
upward during a deployment. In order to enable the proper
deployment of the passenger airbag, specialty equipment
installation MUST NOT PREVENT the top pad from rotating
upward during deployment. Location and attachment
of special equipment should minimize added resistance
or interference to upward rotation of the top pad during
deployment.
On the right half of the top pad closest to the passenger airbag
module, GM recommends that no equipment be mounted.
When mounting equipment not he driver side of the top pad,
GM recommends that the toal mass of the top pad mounted
special equipment not exceed 8 pounds (3.6 Kilograms), since
some top pads tend to rotate about the left end.
Fasteners used to secure special equipment to the instrument
panel top pad, the windshield glass, or to the windshield
upper frame (header), should be selected to ensure that
these devices will remain attached during a vehicle crash and
possible airbag deployment.
Side-Impact Airbags for crashes to the vehicle sides.
The airbag system in your police vehicle includes roof rail
mounted Head Curtain side airbags. The vehicle is also
equipped with seat back mounted upper body airbags located
on the outboard side of the driver and front passenger seat
backs. Together the Head Curtain and seat-mounted side
airbags are intended to protect the head and upper body in
the event of a side crash. The Head Curtain and seat-mounted
side airbags also may be commanded to deploy in the event
that the vehicle sensing system detects an impending or
underway rollover of the vehicle. Some vehicles may also be
equipped with an optional airbag, mounted on the inboard
side of the driver seat back.
Can Specialty Vehicle Security Barriers be mounted within
the side airbag deployment zones?
No. The Side airbags inflate extremely fast because of the
nature of side crashes to the vehicle. Mounting a security
barrier behind the front seats with the ends placed within
the side airbag deployment zones will result in unintended
interaction between the barrier and the inflated side airbags.
To reduce the risk of injury to the vehicle occupants, GM
recommends that the side airbag zones be kept free of any
customer installed equipment.
Customer furnished equipment installed to the vehicle roof.

Always use safety belts and the correct restraint for your child’s age and size, even with air bags. Even in vehicles equipped with the Passenger Sensing
System, children are safer when properly secured in a rear seat in the appropriate infant, child or booster seat. Never place a rear-facing infant restraint in the
front seat of any vehicle equipped with an active frontal air bag. See the Owner’s Manual and the child safety seat instructions for more safety information.
AIRBAGS FAQ
Can the installation of push bumpers on the front end of the
vehicle affect the deployment of the airbag?
General Motors is not aware of adverse effects during crash
events from the many push bumpers that have been installed
on GM police vehicles. Because there are many styles of
push bumpers available with varying crash characteristics,
installation of push bumpers may or may not effect deployment
timing of the airbags. Push bumpers should be mounted to
avoid modifying the vehicle structure and interfering with the
front airbag sensors mounted on the upper radiator support
cross member.
Two front impact sensors are installed in General Motors
vehicles. Do not relocate or disconnect the front sensors.
The location and orientation of the front sensors are critical
for correct operation of the airbag system. Avoid mounting
components on or near the sensors. Push bumper styles with
vertical pushing members that are in foreaft alignment with
the front airbag sensors are not recommended.
When should an airbag inflate?
The driver's and right-front passenger's frontal airbags are
designed to inflate in moderate to severe frontal or nearfrontal crashes. But they are designed to inflate only if the
impact speed is above the system's designed "threshold
level."
In addition, your vehicle has “dual stage” frontal airbags which
tailor the amount of restraint according to crash severity. For
moderate frontal impacts, the airbags inflate at a level less
than full deployment. For more severe frontal impacts, "dual
stage" frontal airbags deploy at full levels.
If the front of your vehicle goes straight into a wall that
doesn't move or deform, the threshold level of the reduced
deployment is about 12 to 16mph (19 to 15 km/h), and the
threshold level for a full deployment is about 18 to 24 mph
(29 to 28.5 km/h). The threshold level can vary, however, with
specific vehicle design, so that it can be somewhat above or
below this range.
If your vehicle strikes something that will move or deform
such as a parked car, the threshold level will be higher. The
driver's and right-front passenger's frontal airbags are not
designed to inflate in rollover, side impacts, or rear impacts,
because inflation would not help the occupant.
Seat mounted side impact airbags are designed to inflate in
moderate to severe side crashes. The side impact airbags will
inflate if the crash severity is above the designed "threshold
level." The threshold level can vary with specific vehicles
design. The side impact airbags are not designed to inflate
on frontal or near frontal impacts or rear impacts, because
inflation would not help the occupant.
How long will the airbag remain inflated?
It takes approximately 1/20th of a second to fully inate the
frontal airbags. This is faster than the blink of an eye. The
airbags begin to deate immediately, helping to stop the
occupants more gradually. Unlike frontal airbags, head curtain
side airbags can remain inflated for more than 5 seconds
before they start to deate.
I've heard that a deployed airbag produces what appears to
be smoke, is the airbag hot?
After the bag has deployed in a crash, the airbag itself will not
be hot to touch. Some components within the airbag module
will be hot for a short time. A small amount of smoke coming
from a deployed airbag module is normal and should not
be cause for concern. Also, when the nitrogen gas is vented
out of the airbag, small particles from inside the bag are also
vented into passenger compartment. These airborne particles
look like smoke and some particles are deposited as residue
on and around the airbag.
I've heard that the dusts that are released into the passenger
compartment from the airbag are harmful, is this true?
For most people, the only effect the dusts will produce is
some irritation of the throat and eyes, and that is only if the
occupant remains in the vehicle for many minutes after the
airbag deployment with no ventilation and windows closed.
However, some people with asthma may develop an asthmatic
attack from inhaling the dusts. If this happens, they should
first treat themselves the same way their doctor has advised
them to treat any other asthma attack, and then immediately
seek medical treatment.
Can the airbag system be re-used?
No. The airbags are designed to inflate only once. After
inflation, some new parts will be required. These will include the
airbag module and possibly other parts. (A competent service
technician with access to the vehicle's service manual and the
required tools should replace the required components after
a deployment crash.)
If my vehicle has airbags, why should I have to wear my
safety belt?
Yes, safety belts are the primary safety restraint in the vehicle.
Airbags are in many vehicles today and will be in most of
them in the future. But they are supplemental systems only; so
they work with safety belts, not instead of them. Every airbag
system ever offered for sale has required the use of safety
belts. Even if you're in a vehicle that has airbags, you still have
to buckle up to get the most protection. That's true not only
in frontal collisions but especially in side and other collisions.
Roof rail mounted head-curtain airbags are designed to
inflate in moderate to severe side crashes. In addition, certain
vehicles have head-curtain airbags which are also designed
to inflate in situations where an impending rollover condition
is identified by the vehicle's rollover sensing system and/or
frontal or near-frontal impacts if the crash severity is above
the designed "threshold level." Safety belt pretensioners at
the driver and front passenger seat positions are designed
to deploy in frontal, near-frontal, side, and rear crashes that
exceed the "threshold level" of crash severity to help reduce
slack in the safety belt. Safety belt pretensioners will also
deploy in impending rollover situations.
Always use safety belts and the correct restraint for your child’s age and size, even with air bags. Even in vehicles equipped with the Passenger Sensing
System, children are safer when properly secured in a rear seat in the appropriate infant, child or booster seat. Never place a rear-facing infant restraint in the
front seat of any vehicle equipped with an active frontal air bag. See the Owner’s Manual and the child safety seat instructions for more safety information.
ELECTRONIC STABILITY CONTROL
SYSTEMS (STABILITRAK)
StabiliTrak systems help drivers maintain control of their vehicles, especially during
emergency lane changes or avoidance maneuvers. StabiliTrak uses various sensors, such
as steering wheel angle, wheel speed, yaw velocity, etc., to detect any difference between
the path requested by the steering wheel position and vehicle’s actual path. When
appropriate, the system selectively controls brakes, engine power, and even suspension
settings to enhance control of the vehicle’s direction and help keep it on course.
Independent studies conducted by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration,
the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, and others have found StabiliTrak to be highly
reactive in reducing vehicle crashes. General Motors offers StabiliTrak systems on many of
its passenger car and light truck models.
See your owner's manual for additional information about the operation of StabiliTrak.
Q. How do I use StabiliTrak?
A. StabiliTrak operates independently of the driver.
You should continue to drive your StabiliTrak equipped
vehicle with caution and care. GM’s StabiliTrak system,
StabiliTrak is designed to be as seamless as possible in
operation, and part of the overall vehicle response to
make a good vehicle better
Q. How does StabiliTrak work?
A. StabiliTrak has the ability to apply control forces to
the vehicle independent of the driver. StabiliTrak uses
sensors to continuously compare the path indicated by
the steering wheel position to the vehicle’s actual path.
If a discrepancy is detected, StabiliTrak selectively
controls vehicle brakes and engine torque to create
a yaw moment that helps restore the vehicle’s actual
path to the path indicated by the steering wheel
position. StabiliTrak has the ability to help correct both
understeer (where the vehicle is not turning as much
as the steering wheel position indicates) and oversteer
(where the vehicle is turning more than the steering
wheel position indicates).
Q. Will a tire change aect StabiliTrak?
A. Use of tires other than original equipment may
aect StabiliTrak performance. StabiliTrak is designed
to make the best use of available traction. The
performance characteristics of the original equipment
tires are part of the overall system effectiveness.
When you replace tires check the recommendations
in your owner's manual. On GM vehicles, the original
equipment tires have a “TPC” (Tire Performance
Criteria) code on the sidewall. Replacing the tires
with the same “TPC” code will help assure proper
StabiliTrak performance.
DRIVER OPERATED
TRACTION CONTROL BUTTON
An advanced computer controlled stability
enhancement system assists the driver with directional
control of the vehicle in dicult driving conditions. Each
time the vehicle is started, the StabiliTrak system is
fully on. Stabilitrak can be controlled by a Traction
Control Button. The condition system is displayed by
a StabiliTrak indicator light and Driver Information
Center (DIC) Message. Push once to disable Traction
Control. Push and hold to disable both Traction
Control and StabiliTrak. In this condition, StabiliTrak
will automatically turn ON when the vehicle speed
exceeds 35 mph (56km/hr) while the Traction Control
remains OFF. Push again to enable Traction Control
and StabiliTrak.
