Question about 1999 GMC Jimmy
It is usualy the shift interlock mechanism that fails.the jimmy has an actuator mounted at the bottom of the steering column so it knows when the brake pedal is pressed and releases the gear selector.you would be suprised as sometimes it is just the mechanism that get stock in back of the shifter.remove the cover around the shifter and spray some rust off and play with the shifter.the button behind the shifter gets jammed.try it out.its a simple diagnosis.

Tips for a great answer:
The ignition switch is turned to the RUN or the START position.
When the ignition switch is in the RUN or the START position, the current flows from the B/U Lamp fuse located in the underhood bussed electrical center (UBEC) through CKT 839 (PNK) to the park/neutral position switch. The park/neutral position switch also feeds the backup lamps portion of the switch. With the transmission in the PARK position, the current flows to the BTSI fuse located in the underhood bussed electrical center (UBEC) through CKT 275 (LT GRN). The current then flows to the TCC/stoplamp switch through CKT 584 (LT GRN/BLK). The current continues to the BTSI solenoid through CKT 1135 (DK GRN/WHT). The ground path is provided through CKT 1850 (BLK) to G207. When the brake pedal is depressed, the normally closed contacts in the TCC/stoplamp switch open and the current flow is interrupted. When the current flow is interrupted, the BTSI solenoid de-energizes. The transmission may then shift to another gear. When the transmission shifts to another gear (except PARK), the contacts in the park/neutral position switch open. This condition stops the current flow to energize the solenoid when the brake pedal releases.
