And this upsets you why? or will it start in any gear? neutral safety switch at the bottom of the steering column may be bad..later models used one at the shifter linkage on the transmission also check these..or else some interlock issue is present...consult the troubleshoot book on this item..also..

I'm pretty sure it should start without touching the brakes. But it shouldn't shift out of park without pressing on the brake pedal.

I had the same problem with my 2001. I found it was the multi function switch. Better known as your turn signal switch. I found that the hazard switch portion of it had shorted. replacement is fairly easy, aftermarket part is available, much cheaper than GM.

Disconnect the heater hoses from the water pump and the intake manifold. Get a compressor and blow out the hose (put the air hose into the the hose that came off the mainfold. then flush the system and replace the antifreeze.

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.

Warning signs that your 98 GMC Jimmy calipers are bad?


Squealing/Squeaking upon stepping on the brakes(maybe was doing it a little while ago and is not now). May hear a slight grinding noise. May see an abnormal amount of black dust around your rim.... You could just take off the wheel and inspect or look through the holes in the rim to see it...

2001 GMC Jimmy,left rear pads were stuck against the rotor


Either a bad caliper or wheel cylinder. In the majority of the cases, the cylinder is to blame. But if you want to be safe, replace both to cover your bases.

How do you adjust emergency brake on a 2001 gmc pickup


Generally all vehicles have self adjusters. They work only when you go in reverse. Try backing up and applying the brakes at quick stops for about 5 to 10 times. You should see a difference in braking when moving forward. If not the rear brakes are in need of replacement. Also if you never checked or filled your brake fluid in the master cylinder and its more than half down you will need brakes all around all wheels

My 2001 gmc Jimmy is making a metal on metal grinding sound in the front left wheel area when I touch the brakes. Do u think it's brake pads or worse? And how hard is it to fix?


If the sound is barely noticable its the squeekers letting you know you need new brakes in a few more hundred miles or so.When you let your foot off the brake the sound disappears quickly doesn't it? If so its time for new pads
