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.

You will have to remove the differential cover on the rear end, in the center of the gear cluster you'll have to rotate your axle until it exposes the ends of the axle shafts, push in the axles as far as you can from the brake pad assembly area, then, there this a C clips that slips into a groove on the end of the axle, you'll have to reove the C clip to pull out the axle.

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.

After not getting an answer from anyone on this site, I went back out to car, and figured it out by myself. Amazingly, it was rather simple. After unhooking wire connector from multi-function lever, all that needed to be done was pull lever out of column. It took a little twisting back and forth, and a firm pull on lever. There is an 'e-clip' that holds lever inside of hole in column, plus a slot on hole, and a '***' on lever. Had to twist back and forth slightly while pulling firmly. Unfortunately after trying a different lever, I realized that the problem is the turnsignal switch, a whole new can of worms to contend with.

i had the same thing happen. you need to replace the head light switch. The plastic where the headlight switch bank is just pry's open. it looks like you are removing half the dash but your not. the switch only comes out threw the back after you pop the plastic off and you open the clip and unplug the light switch. good luck i hope this helps
