SOURCE: GMC Yukon - ABS light and parking brake light come on while drivi

try to pull up on your parking brake pedal with your hand when light comes on. if this makes it go out u will need to adjust the parking brake switch under the pedal. or replace pedal spring that holds it up.

SOURCE: 2001 Jimmy ABS and brakes lights came on

I hate to say it, but the abs control module might have died on you. Thats the boxy looking thing under the hood that has a lot of brake lines and wire connectors going into it. I have seen this happen before and it ended up being one of the speed sensors on the wheels but usually its the module. Take the truck somewhere to get the light scanned, and that will give you a better idea of what it is.

SOURCE: 1996 GMC Jimmy will not shift into overdrive.

4th gear failure is a common problem with this transmission, assuming it is an automatic. You should have the vehicle checked for codes by a qualified repair center with the proper scan tool. Also, check fluid level and condition. More often than not, the trans loses 3rd and 4th gear, as these are working off the same set of clutches. 3-4 clutches apply in 3rd, and when the 4th shift is made the 2-4 band applies giving you overdrive. If you have no engine braking in manual 3rd, you definitely have a mechanical failure, no 4th could be an electrical, or mechanical fault.

SOURCE: gmc yukon has the abs & parking brake light

you have to fix the problem with ur brakes- first check the wiring ,connectors and connection clips to the abs sensors and modulator if looks ok than have truck scanned some auto stores such as auto zone / advanced auto do it for free the code will give u a start point towards fixing ur problem--visual inspection of brakes doesnt always show problem

SOURCE: Parking Brake

With the parking brake released go under the car and trace the parking brake cable s all the way the the rear brakes. If no problem is found jack the rear of the car up and remove the rear wheels. Remove the brake drums (you might have to insert a brake tool or screwdriver and loosten the adjustment in order to get the drums off. Inspect both brake systems for problems. If you drove through water on your last trip and the car was parked for several days the rear shoes sometimes get stuck to the drums because of rust. Water on the shoes can also cause the automatic adjustors to over tighten the shoes and adjusting the tension with the brake tool or screwdriver will correct it. Most of the time the adjustment slot is on the backplate at the bottom and has a small rectangular rubber plug you have to remove to make the adjustment. Some of the newer vehicles have the adjustment on the front of the drum and is a round hole which must be near the top to reach the adjustor.

Abs and brake lights on


Thats a big possibility. The abs light is on telling the driver the abs system is disabled. And the regular brake light could be on because the parking brake is not released.

My 98 gmc jimmy will not shift out of park


possibly the neutral safety switch connected to the brake pedal is bad. when you apply foot to brake , shouls hear a click with key in run position, this would be the safety solenoid retracting itself from shift linkage, allowing shift lever to move. try pumping rapidly, but easily the brake pedal to see if you can hear click, and or shift from park.

Brake light only is on, not the ABS light, just brake light


the red brake light can come on for several different reasons, one is if the fluid is low, if this is not the case the switch in the master cyl. resivor may be faulty. unplug it and jumper the wires together and see if the light goes out, if so the switch is bad. the other place that the wireing may be a problem is at the parking brake. the same process applies to testing the switch and wireing as the master cyl. if these do not seem to help then you may need to pull the codes out of the electronic brake controller and diag according to the fault codes that are set. hope this helps.

1996 GMC Jimmy Stopping Problems


sounds like your abs isnt working right. The pulling to the right could be the alignment out, brake pads more worn out on one side then the other or a rotor grabbing better than the other. If I was you I would get the alignment checked along with replacing brake pads and rotors and maybe disconnecting the abs, thats what I did to mine and have no problems anymore.
