Question about 2001 GMC Jimmy

1 Answer

Shortage Okay its me again. I have a 2001 gmc jimmy and I have my daytime saving lights on. But, while following my brother he noticed when I put on my turn signal blinkers my headlights go completely out. Then when I turn them off my lights come back on. Does this mean that I have a shortage somewhere or can you give me some advice on what it could be.

This is normal operation. The DTRL's turn off so on coming traffic can see your directional lights blinking. Your daytime running lights are so bright it is hard to see your turn signals during the day.

Also did you know that if you press in/out your dome override switch 3 times you can turn off your daytime running lights. After you hear a "ding" your lights should be off. Do the same to turn them back on.

At night your DTRL's are your highbeams.

Check the brake light switch should be a orange wire with 12v then a white wire with 12v when the pedal is pressed.If htat cks good then ck the hazard switch by moving it up and down and wiggeling the knob with the brake pedal pressed if they start working then your multifunction switch is bad and needs to be replaced.

2001 gmc jimmy 4.3l.idles low and will stall when put into gear unless engine is reved up a little.


Clean the Idle air control valve (IAC), it's located by the throttle body so the best thing to do is give the throttle body a good cleaning with throttle body cleaner. Do not use carb cleaner, it's to corrosive for the gaskets used on the throttle body's. Just follow the instruction on the spray can and after your done putting everything back together. Turn the ignition key's to the run position for 10 seconds and then off for 10 seconds to reset the IAC. Start the engine and let idle for 1 min and go for a test drive. If that does not work, turn the ignition to the run position and pull the ecm(BATT) fuse out for 30 seconds and then place it back in start te engine. The engine may stall but let it, don't touch anything. Just start it again and let idle for 1 min then go for a test drive. The ECM is just relearning the sensors like the first time the jimmy was driven off the assembly line. Good luck and hope this helps. Keep me posted be glad to get your jimmy running 100%.
