I have a 99 gmc jimmy that I'm having gauge issues with. The low fuel light is on gas gauge is on empty, battery light is on and temp gauge stays on cold and the ABS, security lights stay on and the high beam light doesn't come on when switched from low beams. I replaced high beam bulb and nothing changed. At first this was just a temporary issue they would go back to normal operation once the cabin warmed up but now they seem to stay on all the time."

You have a bad electrical connection. Check the wiring harness and both sides of it's connectors for corrosion and or breakage. The connector terminals will become worn and corroded and the wiring sheaths a prone to weathering and become brittle. Replace or clean as needed.

2001 GMC Jimmy wont start


Try pouring a little gas into the throttle body and starting. If it runs and dies, most likely a bad fuel pump. I already had to put two of them on my 1998 jimmy. Good luck!

Temp and gas gauge doesn't work 1994 gmc jimmy


check the fuse block for a blown fuse, the one that controls dash gauges should be identified in the owner's manual.

Low on fuel warning light not coming on


My experience is with a 98 and a 99 cavalier but I don't think the changes from 97-98 included the cluster, so here's my experience. There is no designated warning light for the fuel gauge. When the gauge gets to almost empty(just a millimeter or so above empty) the red "check gauges" light will illuminate. I don't know whether you have had the tank this empty or not, but periodic checking of the cluster should make you notice if the level is this low. Hope this helps, it's all I can say with the info posted.

What would case my 99 gmc jimmy to bog down and run rough when giving it gas


If you have replaced the fuel filter this year, the next thing to check is fuel pressure with a gauge. GM vortec engines require 60psi or more to run.
If the check engine light is on you should also have the computer scanned for trouble codes.

Our 1998 gm safari said check gauge and the engine won't start,We thought it was the gas so I went to the gas station and got gas. I was wondering what does that mean?


check gauges means that the car senses something is not working properly, such as temp gauge reading to hot ,or oil pressure reading to low ,fuel to low, its to get your attention that something is wrong .

Why do my gas needle go from low fuel light on to exactly how much gas I have in the tank?


I'm not sure I am understanding your question. The low Fuel indicator light comes on, depending on how sensitive it is set, when you have between 2 and 5 gallons of gas left in the tank. This also depends on how accurate your fuel level sending unit is reading the fuel level in the tank. The low fuel level light depends on the level of fuel in the tank itself but other than using that sensor it has nothing to do with the fuel gauge itself. The fuel gauge may or may not be accurately showing the fuel level.

Have a 2001 gmc jimmy...drove home gas gauge read 1/4 tank..next day cranked over but wont start..gas gauge reads empty...put $10.00 from spare gas can..cranked over but no start ..gas gauge still reads...


chevy and gmc trucks have an on going problem with this,turn the key on,and get a rubber mallot or a hammer and hit the bottom of the fuel tank a couple of times,this will unstick something in the fuel pump/sending unit.
