    I have the same problem, I did change the flasher relay to a new one, and now it justs makes this irritating buzzing noise, until i tap the brakes that is. BTW the flasher relay is behind glove box. If anyone knows how to fix this annoyance would be much appreciated.

I had same problem. You need to change the combo signal switch. I did find a sneeky way to do it without taking off steering wheel & air bag. There are two torx screws holing it on. The one in the front of switch is easy to get to. The other one toward the left under steering wheel is the pain. Get the proper torx bit, the bit should be about 1 in long. Put just the bit in the screw and use a quarter inch wrench to loosen it. This should save you about 1 hr & alot of work. Dont forget to remove battery cables first when working around the air bag (yellow wire)

Just read somewhere that this is due to bad multifunction switch which controls turn signals, wipers and cruise control. My wipers also have intermittent problems but havent fixed the problem yet.

1995 GMC Jimmy brake lights not working


Brake lights run through the hazzard switch. There are known problems with this, and the multifunction switch. You may need to buy a new hazzard switch and OR the multifunction switch. Before you do that, check the pigtail that goes into the brake switch up by the fender, make sure it's not shorting out up there. Happened to me!

Blowing brake light fuses everytime you hit brakes.


Sounds like a short in the steering colume, maybe the turn signal switch, or a wire that the insulation got wore thru in the colume. Unhook break light switch and try the turn signals and hazards again and see what happens, maybe you can isolate it that way. Also if you havent done it already chk.the sockets in tailight housing for corrosion and bear wires, or anything, even ground wires.

ASE mechanic here:
trying checking the turn signal flasher, the fuses, if all work fine, most likely cause is the multi-function switch.
