Question about 1995 GMC Jimmy

1995 GMC Jimmy brake lights not working

My brake lights stopped working after I tried to turn on my Emergency Flashers while towing a trailer. As soon as I turned on the Emergency Flasher button on the steering column I had no turn signals, brake lights or emergency flashers. After turning the Emergency Flasher button back off I have turn signals again but still no brake lights. I checked all the fuses in the fuse panel on the side of the dash and just finished replacing the brake switch on the brake pedal under the dash, still nothing. Any suggestions on what to try next?

Brake lights run through the hazzard switch. There are known problems with this, and the multifunction switch. You may need to buy a new hazzard switch and OR the multifunction switch. Before you do that, check the pigtail that goes into the brake switch up by the fender, make sure it's not shorting out up there. Happened to me!

SOURCE: 1997 sonoma turn signal flasher

it is inside, under dash, on left side is a plastic sound protector, mine had 3 screws holding it up, drop this down and straight in you will see a 1" round thing - this is the flasher, pull it out and replace with new one (there are two flat prongs that plug in). It appears this is a well guarded secret!

Could be the multifunction switch problem: http://www.automotix.net/autorepair/recalls/gmc-jimmy/

Summary: GENERAL MOTORS IS RECALLING 5,862 MY 2000-2002 CHEVROLET BLAZER, MY 2000-2001 GMC JIMMY, AND MY 2000 OLDSMOBILE BRAVADA SPORT UTILITY VEHICLES. THE MULTIFUNCTION SWITCH COULD DEVELOP AN OPEN CIRCUIT CONDITION THAT RESULTS IN THE STOP LAMPS AND THE REAR HAZARD LAMPS BECOMING INOPERATIVE. THE CENTER HIGH MOUNTED STOP LAMP AND TURN SIGNAL FUNCTIONS ARE NOT AFFECTED.

Brake lights ave gone out, l have tried everything.Someone mention there is a switch in the steerling wheel colum that may need to b e replace. Also the flashers will not work either. Help


I do not think that the brake lights and e-flashers would have anything to do with each other. If the brake lights do not work the first thing I would check is the stop switch under the brake pedal. As far as the E-flashers go, that may be a problem with the multifunction switch.

No brake lights 3rd brake light works just put all new bulbs in.checked all fuses even under the hood,does this vehicle have a flasher fuses because those dont work either. both turn signal and rear lamps...


car should have an emergency flasher. If it isn't working, it could affect the brake lights. might be the same unit as the turn flasher but different relay inside. Is your fuse panel behind the glovebox? manual says flasher is in the fusebox. It's worth a try replacing this flasher unit. Looks like this:

1997 Chevy Tahoe both turn signals stopped working


Sounds like the flasher unit to me. Normally the emergency flasher and turn signal are separate.

2003 dodge ram lights work on trailer but brake lights


try http://www.etrailer.com/faq-wiring.aspx. They have very good concise information that might help. Check wiring at each light. You can use the emergency flashers and a 12 volt test light to do this.
Make sure each light is grounded well. A loose ground will cause all sorts of problems. Hope this helps. Mike

1995 GMC Jimmy signal light function not working


ASE mechanic here:
trying checking the turn signal flasher, the fuses, if all work fine, most likely cause is the multi-function switch.

Brake lights only show on center 3rd high stop tail lamp


Yes, the flasher does interrupt the brake signal. you do know that this is a push on, push off switch. Some try to pull this switch to turn off flashers, but, it has to be pushed again to turn off.
