Question about 1999 GMC Sierra

1 Answer

Not getting power to the ground in front end.

Not sure how to start this so here goes,
Mine is a 99 sierra extended cab Z71, I'm not getting power to front end but when I had it up on stands ,all four corners off the ground. The fnt.shaft is turning and the fnt. wheels spin untill I apply presure to the front tires ( chock one tire and use an axe handle to apply resistance to the other.) I am able to stop the rotation very easly. no grinding,banging or other noise. obviously problem is in the transfer case,, "right?"
I have already replaced the actuator and dash switches.

Thanks in advance,

Jim Krynak,

Oberlin, Ohio.

Blower Motor cuts out while operating on my 2001 GMC Sierra 4wd extended cab P/U. Banged on the spot on the passenger side under the dash and it started to work again. What could cause this?

Your truck may have a bad blower motor resistor. It can be very easy to replace, if you have a "work truck" or plain truck just look under the dash and you can see it, it has a connector with about 6 wires on it, it is right beside the blower motor. If you have a higher end truck like a LT or Z71 you will need to remove a plastic trim panel to see it, this will be difficult if you have a center console. You may also have a bad blower, to test this you will need to disconnect the two wire connector on the motor when the fan stops working and check for voltage on the red wire. If there is no power then the resistor is bad, if there is you have a bad blower. But you will need the problem to act up to properly test this.

What does the 50 amp fuse labeled batt in the fuse box under the hood send power too ? If I dont remove it my battery will drain totally dead over nite. Its in a 1996 chev 1/2 4wd Z71 extended cab

The fuse is the main fuse to the vehicles power supply just the same as removing the battery cable . you have a drain in your electrical system , use a test light , remove the possitive cable from the battery and hook one end to the battery and the other to the cable remove fuses till the light goes off ( make sure all doors are closed and switches turned off) that is your drain source . do no remove the 50 amp fuse in this test .
