This is a well documented problem, replace the turn signal/multifunction switch to correct this issue, this very problem happened on my GMC, it is a 99 as well, replaced the switch as instructed by a chevy forum member and it fixed the problem

I have a 1998 suburban I had the same problem,, what i found is that the connector from the brake switch has a 6 prong connector which has about a 1 foot long wire harness where the 6 wires are taped togethor and go into a square prong connector above the steering colum i disconnected it and unrapped the tape to find that one of the wires had a slight dry rotted crack in it, so i stripped it and put it togethor taped it and put it back in and it works fine now.

I have 97 suburban that i changed the brake switch but the brake lights work intermintten what else could be the problom


this one is tricky. I know that gmc had a problem with the hazard button dropping out the brake lights except for the third light. There was a recall so you may be in luck if it includes your vehicle, or it maybe switch that detects the brake being depressed. I had that problem w/1999 Jimmy and my cheap fix was to jump each side off the third brake light. I used the top bulb in assembly and disconnected the wire that feeds the brake light but left running light wire on. Havent had a problem since.

Replaced brake switch,new brake-light bulbs, fuse ok, still get no brake lights, and turn signals in rear not working....what can i do ?


Hi, assuming you have the correct bulbs installed, the wires leaving the turn signal switch seem to be broken along their trip to the back of the truck. If you tell me your model and year, I may be able to tell you where to look for the problem.

Third brake lights work but no rear brake lights


Check the switch on the brake pedal, connect the wires to each other and if the lights work then the switch is at fault, if they do not then check fuses, wiring etc.

No brake lights on 95 Suburban


Bad or borken wire harness in the steering coloum. check power to brake switch, should have power on one side, if not check the fuse if fuse is good and you have no power then your turn signal switch or harness is bad.
