I actually just took mine out today on a 1998 Gmc Jimmy. Its kind of simple now that ive done it. There are four ten millimeter bolts holding the passenger module in. you will need to drop your glovebox down so it is upside down to see these. It is easier if you take it right off. just take a shop light and look at the bottom of the module you will see two silver bolts (the only two ten mm down there) take them out. Then if you look up underneath you will see another up at the top left. To get this out you can hand wrench it or you can use a mini impact with an ajustable extension. to get the next the easiest way I found was to take off the trim aroung your speedometer get in the drivers seat and there is another ten millimeter nut on the top right (right by the vent holes) take that out then you are unbolted. Without going into tons of details when you start doing it you will quickly realsie how to do it it just takes some patience. Dont forget to pull the fuse before you do anything its a 15 amp fuse second row 3rd up in the panel inside the car. Hope this helps

If there is a current failure in the airbag system, you can't reset it. The light will stay on for as long as the fault exists. You can plug GM's Tech 2 scan tool in, clear the code, and the light will turn right back on if the fault is still present in the airbag system. The only way to turn the light off (besides putting black tape over it) is to read the diagnostic code, diagnose the problem, and fix it.

Have a 99 gmc jimmy and when i toggle the turn

hi, to me this doesn't sound like a column issue, sounds more like a bad ground in one of the lights, or modules in the back light clusters. when power is applied to one bulb, and there is no ground for that bulb, electricity can backflow through another grounded bulb and illuminate it. i think you should check this first, but if you want to get in the steering column, first disconnect the battery power, then ground, and leave disconnected for at least two minutes before removing airbag. the airbag has screws from the backside of the steering wheel to remove, usually only two, one on each side, but sometimes four. when you remove the screws, they may not come all the way out, meaning, loosen them until they are loose, they might stay there. then pull straight towards you to remove airbag. there will be a yellow connector and a horn connector to remove, and if you have cruise control in the steering wheel, there will be two small connectors for this to remove. when you go to remove the steering wheel, make sure you mark the clocked position with a marker pen before you remove so as not to re-install incorrectly. also make sure to have the steering wheel centered and straight with the front wheels pointing straight ahead. when you press off the steering wheel, there will be a plastic piece called a clockspring that you pulled the connectors out of. note exactly which way the connections is and make sure to either tape it to this placement, or don't move it around when removing. if you turn the clockspring one turn, one way or the other, when you put back on, it will be overclocked one direction and when you go to make a turn the other way, it will break internally causing the air bag light to come on and you will get to replace the clockspring. one more thing, place the airbag facing upwards when storing during repairs in case it accidently goes off, it will not lauch into the air like this, and store on an open area.
