Question about 1999 GMC Jimmy
Check to see if there's a square metal box mounted under the hood passenger side with red wires on both sides and 1 or 2 small wires out of the top or front. If so, this is your starter solenoid and probably needs replacing. If not, then follow the red ( positive ) wire from the battery to see where it goes. If is goes to a small cylinder mounted on the side of your starter then this is your solenoid. Either solenoid can be tapped as your helper turns the key and it MAY start - no guarantees though. Either way I suspect you solenoid is going out and will soon strand you somewhere inconvenient. Both types can be replaced individually however the starter mounted version is usually replaced as a unit with the starter. This is not too involved of a job but make SURE you disconnect the battery before doing this repair.
