Well, if you key the ignition up without starting, pull back on the shifter handle and try to move it to reverse--while depressing the brake pedal--have someone look at the brake lights while you hit the pedal to be sure they are coming on.

Is the truck on a hill putting the parking pawl in a bind?

Is there an adjustment for the stop light switch on a 99 GMC Yukon. I have replace it and my brake lights still do not work. Park lights work fine.

There is no adjustment. The park lights are on a different circuit than the brake lights.
Do you have a third brake light that works. Its also on a different circuit but works from the same switch. Do your turn signals work. They use the same filament as the brake lights.
Also, the brake light circuit goes through the multi function (turn signal) switch.

Since the brake lights and turn signal lights use the same filament in the bulbs, the brake light circuit will pass through the turn signal switch. When a turn signal is used it cancels out the brake light for that side.

Let me know if your third brake light and turn signals work in the rear.
Also, if youy have not already, check/change the bulbs. The type of sockets those lights are in also get burned so look at them well.

2001 GMC Yukon 4wd -- inside of front brake rotors worn unevenly, what causes this? Caliper slide pins seem to be OK, caliper slides against bracket OK. -David

This is not uncommon. It comes from the design of the disc brake systems which contain the one piston. The ideal condition would be that the clamping pressures are equal for both the inside/inboard pad and the outboard pad, but that just does not happen. It's always good to make sure that the slide pins are lubed with a good brake caliper grease and that you use a good quality original equipment brake pad set. I recomend using the AC Delco brand. This will also prevent any squeeking that you will get from "cheap" pads. Sounds like everything is working good. Let me know if you need anything else.

Dont know how to get to the brake light switch on 99 yukon denali

Hi to locate the brake light switch you need to have a very close look at the brake pedal (now this is where you need to be a contortionist) if you follow the brake pedal right to the top just before it goes through the bulk head, now at the very top of the pedal if you have a close look you will see the brake light switch its actually located at the very back and very top of the brake pedal.

its a bit hard to get to but if you slide the drivers seat right back and you sort of break your neck twisting round to have a close look at the brake pedal you should just about see the brake light switch its at the very back of the pedal and will have a couple of wires going to it.

now if you have got big hands your in trouble as its very hard to get to so you may struggle.

let me know if you have any problems ok

plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

Is there a way to turn the headlights off while car is running.We want to go thru Christmas display and they require you drive with park lights only. My lights come on automatically.

I THINK if you barely put on the parking brake, just enough to make the lights go off, but not drag, you will be OK. Try it and see if the lights go out when the parking brake is applied.

2002 YUKON XL Denali no brake lights or cruise


Check your bulbs first, I have lost both headlights on my ford at once on account of the bulbs burning out at the same time. Same thing probably happen, you have one filament out. The lights can work, but if the filament for brake is burnt, you don't see brake lights.

As for the cruise control. Check fuse box first. If OK check vacuum hose to actuator in engine compartment for starters.

95 sub emerg/parking brake light will not turn off

Only two things should normally activate the light:

Parking Brake engaged switch.

Low Fluid level in master cylinder.

I don't think you did any work to the Parking brake, but you should check it to be sure.

I believe that you would have double checked the fluid level, but please check it again.

Other things that could activate the light would be a worn or leaking master cylinder; improper brake fluid type; a damaged brake booster diphragm .

I have attached a link with excellent info on how a brake system works here.

Also, does the light always stay on, or only when you apply the brakes?
