1997 GMC Jimmy braking problem

The original problem was sometimes when I am braking and turning, such as parking, the brake pedal doesn't move, and it seems to lock up the steering. If I let up on the brake and then step on it again, it will stop the car. I was told this was a malfunctioning wheel speed sensor. This was when I was told to pull the abs fuse. This stopped the braking problem, but caused my cruise to quit, and my tach to malfunction. Does this sound like a wheel speed sensor to you?

The abs control unit controls the speedo (tach) also tells the cruise signal. abs should be fixed or replaced for any of these to work properly with the abs system not working you have no signal to the ecu to say what fuel air mix is for the speed you are doing and will think you are idling.

SOURCE: warning lights

You need to have your brakes inspected by a professional. The lights indicate that ABS and traction control are not working...although brakes will work without these features, a humming noise can indicate more problems to come.

No, the problem is not yet overcome, but it appears as if this fixer-uper has been fixed up before with steering parts that are not compatible with '98 Jimmy's. I've left it in the hands of a local GM geru who claims to be able to fix it. I'll keep the email and keep you posted.

SOURCE: the cruise control just quit

By removing the ABS brake fuse you are disabling other components as well. The ABS fuse supplies voltage to the brake switch that tells the ECM and ABS module the the brake has been applied. If neither of the modules can see the brake switch the cruise control will be electrically disabled. You need to reinstall the fuse.
Let me know.
Regards,

More likely the shift cable is binding. Also make sure you fully apply the emergency brake when you park before shifting into Park. This will prevent loading the linkage by the parking pawl making it difficult to move the lever. Especially when parking on a hill.

Also make sure you are pressing the brake pedal when shifting our of Park. Sometimes the brake light switch can be intermittent and either the switch is bad or the switch is out of alignment with the brake pedal lever. This not the most common cause.

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.
