Question about 1998 GMC Jimmy
There is a clicking sound coming from the glove box area of my 1998 GMC jimmy. From previous post, I have determined that this is from a defective multi switch.
My question, can you replace this without removing the steering wheel?
My concern is the airbag possibly going off while repairing this. Also, others have stated that the cost to fix theirs was around $150. Is this just the part cost or part+ labor?
I have a 1998 GMC Jimmy SLT with same exact problem. I just determined exactly what it is today.
Here is what you should do:
1) Open glove box
2) Notice the u-shape mechanism that prevents the glove box from folding all the way down. (located near top left corner of OPEN glove box
3) Empty contents of glove box and then push up on U-shape and open glove box so that it hangs freely
4) Notice the wiring harness with a bolt in middle of it (located behind glove box)
5) To the right of the wiring harness is a small black box with a zip tie over it. This is the source of your problem. Just slide the zip tie to the right so that the box can then be pulled out.
This is your combination flasher for turn and hazard signals. My signals still worked while this annoying little thing kept clicking. The model # is GM11516051. You can find one on e-bay for at least 1/2 the price of the dealer's.
