A '97 model is OBD II. The new computer will have to be programmed (flashed) using your vehicle identification number in order for it to work. HTH. -Jim

Jim how do I program or FLASHED the computer

It actually needs to be done by a service facility. They plug into the new computer and, using your vehicle identification number, program the new PCM (Computer) for your specific vehicle. Usually costs around $125.00. HTH. -Jim
