Question about 1999 GMC Sierra

Dash will not display shifter position or mileage

The dash display on my 1999 gmc sierra le will not display transmission shifter position and/or mileage. when i partially remove the dash module. sometimes the display will come back on, but when i reinstall the display it will go back out very shortly. I think it may be a wire connection into the display module. but I have not been able to isolate the wire. Can you help me ?

It actually sounds like you have a cold or cracked solder joint or you have oxidation on your connector or socket to the display module. Unplug then plug in your display module several times to attempt to remove the oxidation and see if that helps.

1999 GMC Sierra V6 reverse lights not working. Both light not coming on. Tested bulbs, they work tested fuse it is good. What could be the problem?

Likely the reverse switch. This is either on the shifter assembly but more likely it is screwed into the transmission. An easy swap after correctly identifying the switch. You may lose some transmission oil so put a pan down.

Sounds like your torque converter is going out. If it is that when you go to shift the transmission is not getting enough fluid to keep the parts moving in the transmission. The clunks it the gears freeing up and smashing into the right position. I had a similiar thing happen to me with my old truck. That sounds like the problem you are having, but I could be wrong. I sure way to tell is to check you transmission fluid and see if brown or black. If its one of those the colors the transmission fluid is burnt up. Usually the trans fluid is red. Hope that helps.
