I have set up my new Colorado 4x4 for a toad. I will be using a brake buddy. What fuses do I need to pull to keep the battery from going dead, and recording mileage. The owners man does not mention this, and customer service was no help, and neither was the dealer. Vet Man

I pull a '04 Z/71 Silverado Crew Cab and I don't need to pull any fuses. Just put the transfer case in "Neutral" and gear shift in "Park" and remove the key. I plug in my Brake Buddy and go on my way. It doesn't draw enough power to run the battery down, although I do start the engine when I stop for the day. Also, it does not register any miles while towing. This is the way mine works, but I'm not sure about your Colorado. Good luck!

I spent most of the day trying to get info from Chevy and the dealer, it turns out you do nothing, as retired2001 mentioned. The steering wheel does not lock so just turn the key to off position.
