Normally the brake switch is the issue with these trucks. it is located under the dash where the brake pedal meets the linkage to the brake booster.

Crusie control does not work on 2011 gmc sierra 1500 and I've already replaced the switch?


If the switch is replaced,then it can be wiring issue or faulty cruise control board.But as the switch is replaced,get the voltage at the switch tested to confirm the switch is actually receiving voltage.If no voltage received at switch power supply wire then ,apply external 12 volt power to the cruise control switch wire and then see if cruise control comes ON.If yes,then you know wiring is issue.

My 97 GMC sierra doesn't have a fuel rail or a valve to hook up fuel gage. I was told to hook up at fuel filter. will this work


It should have a valve. However, as I have a 96 I can tell you to start with dropping the tank and replacing the pump, I have to do this every 4 to 5 years on mine. NAPA is the best choice and longest lasting part its been about 4 years on my last change and counting...;) Everyone I know who has this truck has to endure this problem.

1990 GMC Sierra 1500 pickup. Windshield wipers, Cruise Control


May want to look at replacing the wiper circuit board.It is located on the firewall adjacent to the wiper motor and has a some what square black cover with 3 torx screws and wireing harness pluged into the side.We had a truck that every time you washed it the wipers would stay on until it dryed out.You can try removing it and spaying it down with contact cleaner just watch the brease on the two contact tips.Well hope this helps.

My cruise stopped working on my 1991 GMC Sierra 1500 while I was driving. I did a continuity test on the brake switch and it works fine. Any ideas?


Check your cruise control fuse or relay. It will be in your owners manual. If fuse is good than the cruise itself may be faulty. Check continuity on cruise controler itself. If there is power, than the controller itself is bad and need to be replaced. If there is no power than it may be a faulty switch.
