Question about 1999 Chevrolet Suburban

1 Answer

99 suburban,rear brake lights and turn signals work intermittently. Tail lights are fine on both sides. I have replaced bulbs and the circuit panel on the rear to no avail. I think it may be the turn signal switch itself. I also lose the cruise control whenever i hit a bump, like crossing a bridge, also. Could the ground be the cause of this? Another point of issue that may not be related directly is that my horn fuse blows whenever it is replaced and the driver side door jamb switch works intermittently as well. I hope someone can point me in the right direction as I am about to replace the turn signal switch.

Im replacing a tail light circuit board on both rear lights, is their any special way to do this


just check accurately bulbs if you mixed it could happen like that, some cars for the brake lights use two contact bulbs some of them single contact, two contact bulbs can give two signals which one is used for brake ligths and another for taillight, so check the bulbs carefully

Is there an adjustment for the stop light switch on a 99 GMC Yukon. I have replace it and my brake lights still do not work. Park lights work fine.


There is no adjustment. The park lights are on a different circuit than the brake lights.
Do you have a third brake light that works. Its also on a different circuit but works from the same switch. Do your turn signals work. They use the same filament as the brake lights.
Also, the brake light circuit goes through the multi function (turn signal) switch.

Since the brake lights and turn signal lights use the same filament in the bulbs, the brake light circuit will pass through the turn signal switch. When a turn signal is used it cancels out the brake light for that side.

Let me know if your third brake light and turn signals work in the rear.
Also, if youy have not already, check/change the bulbs. The type of sockets those lights are in also get burned so look at them well.

99 yukon denali drivers side turn signal in rear tail light not working, i replaced bulb and still nothing, I looked at the connections and wires and found nothing, front turn signal blinks fast, passenger...


The circuit board needs to be replaced. Which is the board that the bulbs sit in. If you remove the turn signal bulb. You will notice the bulb socket will be slightly burnt inside. I had the same problem with my 99 Denali and replaced the circuit board for $35.00. Now everything is fine.

Have a 99 suburban 4x4 , all three back brake lights do not wrk


I was having the exact same problem as my brake switch was fine on my 95 suburban. However upon further inspection the problem was very simple i felt really dumb once i found this: the wire harness that comes away from the switch witch is a bundle of white wires that comes down and across the under side of the steering column had 2 damaged wires upon repairing this i have had no problems since then feel free to email me on this problem at captainchicken08@hotmail.com as i will do my best to help u out. But the problem is most likely a wire short out, or damaged wires for the normally open circuitfor your brake switch.

I have a 96 Suburban. The daytime headlights come on, brake lights work, but I have no tail light. Turn signals work as well. I checked all fuses and changed all tail light bulbs.


More than likely the circuit board on the taillight housing is bad. Very common. Check for melted plastic or corrosion near terminals on bulb in board. You can buy them at Napa for about twenty bucks per side.
