Question about 1999 GMC Sierra

1 Answer

My 1999 GMC Sierra 1500 has an intermittent gearshift indicator light on or black problem. We have checked and cleaned the ground points. Also, the gas gauge is inconsistent...even when the tanked is just filled, the gauge falls to empty, then eventually will come back to the amount existing in the tank. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

It would be nice to get a little more detail on the intermittent light - you say "intermittent gearshift indicator light on or black problem" - Would it be ok if you elaborate a little more? Thanks.

As for your fuel gauge - you will be needing a new sender unit. Someone liked to keep the tank full all the time, so the wiper that moves across carbon strips wore them out just on that part. Thats why when your fuel quantity goes down, the wiper moves down to a good part of the sender board.

Ford is real proud of that sender unit - $140.

You can buy one on eBay for about $80 shipped to your door --

1996 GMC Sierra 1500 With the key off work right but when I start the truck brake lights are on on the bed the light on cab not when brake peddle pushed the bed lights go off the one on cab comes on.


Hi,
My guess would be a bad ground/earth on one of the sets of lights involved, most probably the brakes.
Check the cables for their grounding points, making sure there are no broken wires & loose or broken connectors.
Best of luck.
