SOURCE: 1998 gmc sierra brake lights

did u check that they not burn?if not you should Check the wires going into the steering column if you don't have separate turn signal lights and brake lights because if they use the same bulb then the turn signal may be bad. If I remember correctly that particular car doesn't work this way, but I include it just in case.

take off the cover on the top and bottom of the steering column just behind the wheel. pop the tilt lever out simply just by grabbing it and give it a good tug. then once you have the new switch and you get in there your going to need an inverted torx socket to remove the small bolts that hold the switch to the column. do not move the gear on the new switch make sure it lines up exactly as the old one did!!!!!!!!!!!!

SOURCE: how to replace the brake light switch on a 1998

Brake light switch is active by the brake paddle.

Before you start,take a picture or do a sketch of the spring or linkage around the brake paddle.

Move the seat back will give you better access.

Press the paddle and the inner side (closer to the firewall) of the paddle will activate the switch.

Please keep in mind there are fuse(s) to protect the lighting circuit.

Check all the fuses before you R&R the brake switch,

Flickering lights on 2004 gmc sierra. alternator changed


Hi J, The ground connections are on each of the units. that is to say there is one power feed to the dome and another to the instrument panel. From there each door is separately grounded via each of the door switches. If one is rusted, contaminated or damaged and not operating correctly, it will cause the dome light and the door warning on the instrument panel to flicker. regards John

I have a 2002 gmc sierra 1500 and I can't find the button that turns off the dome light when you close the door.


The button is part of the latch that holds the door shut. If you have that many issues I wonder if the wiring harness in between the door is bad?

I have a 2006 GMC Sierra and the radio and dome light doesn't always respond when the drivers door is opened. It does work properly when any other door is opened.


you have a bad door switch on the drive's door - replace it.
more then that you may have a short in the wires coming from the car frame to the door itself, but try the switch first.

Dome light does not come on when doors open, but does when dim switch is rotated. The dome light bypass button has no effect on it.


All the door switches use the same wiring harness. It's an orange and a white wire. There is a switch on the dash to turn the dome and wheel lights off. If the lights come on with the dimmer, the whole harness is OK, so now check to see if that switch is turned off... or bad
