Gently pop off the horn cap / cover.

There will be a short wire attached, so be careful not to pull it too hard.

You will see the wire going into the metal frame of the steering wheel.

The wire will go into a "sleeve". Push the sleeve in, and turn slightly counter-clockwise to unlock the connector. The horn will beep a few times as you pull the wire out, just to warn you :)

You will now need a steering wheel puller. These can be bought for about $10 at any auto parts store.

Once the wheel itself is off, you will see a black plastic disk. remove it. Now you will see a metal disk with notches in it (this is what locks the steering wheel when you turn the key off). You may want to get someone for assistance for this one, as there is a pretty stiff spring behind the disc, so use caution. You will need to push the disc towards the dash and remove the retainer clip.

Once that is off, you will see the white turn signal switch. Remove the hazard switch button first, then the turn signal lever retaing screw (be careful if it has cruise control, as the wires are thin and delicate), then remove the 3 phillips head screws holding the actual switch on. Let the switch hang out of the way.

Now, you'll see the lock cylinder retaining screw. This is where you may have a problem if you don't have a key.

After removing the screw, you MUST turn the ignition switch to the "run" position and pull out the assembly.

SOURCE: remove airbag 99 gmc jimmy

I actually just took mine out today on a 1998 Gmc Jimmy. Its kind of simple now that ive done it. There are four ten millimeter bolts holding the passenger module in. you will need to drop your glovebox down so it is upside down to see these. It is easier if you take it right off. just take a shop light and look at the bottom of the module you will see two silver bolts (the only two ten mm down there) take them out. Then if you look up underneath you will see another up at the top left. To get this out you can hand wrench it or you can use a mini impact with an ajustable extension. to get the next the easiest way I found was to take off the trim aroung your speedometer get in the drivers seat and there is another ten millimeter nut on the top right (right by the vent holes) take that out then you are unbolted. Without going into tons of details when you start doing it you will quickly realsie how to do it it just takes some patience. Dont forget to pull the fuse before you do anything its a 15 amp fuse second row 3rd up in the panel inside the car. Hope this helps

SOURCE: 1998 GMC Jimmy with "turn signal" clicking behind glove box

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.

Have a 99 gmc jimmy and when i toggle the turn

hi, to me this doesn't sound like a column issue, sounds more like a bad ground in one of the lights, or modules in the back light clusters. when power is applied to one bulb, and there is no ground for that bulb, electricity can backflow through another grounded bulb and illuminate it. i think you should check this first, but if you want to get in the steering column, first disconnect the battery power, then ground, and leave disconnected for at least two minutes before removing airbag. the airbag has screws from the backside of the steering wheel to remove, usually only two, one on each side, but sometimes four. when you remove the screws, they may not come all the way out, meaning, loosen them until they are loose, they might stay there. then pull straight towards you to remove airbag. there will be a yellow connector and a horn connector to remove, and if you have cruise control in the steering wheel, there will be two small connectors for this to remove. when you go to remove the steering wheel, make sure you mark the clocked position with a marker pen before you remove so as not to re-install incorrectly. also make sure to have the steering wheel centered and straight with the front wheels pointing straight ahead. when you press off the steering wheel, there will be a plastic piece called a clockspring that you pulled the connectors out of. note exactly which way the connections is and make sure to either tape it to this placement, or don't move it around when removing. if you turn the clockspring one turn, one way or the other, when you put back on, it will be overclocked one direction and when you go to make a turn the other way, it will break internally causing the air bag light to come on and you will get to replace the clockspring. one more thing, place the airbag facing upwards when storing during repairs in case it accidently goes off, it will not lauch into the air like this, and store on an open area.

Remove d/s airbag

disconnect the battery, then find the air bag plug normally under the seat or around side of the seat, maybe under the carpet *bright orange cable*

once you have disconnected the battery and the cable start taking the steering wheel apart and remove it, after market steering wheel will be needed unless your just going to cut the air back out and re fit the wheel, do not connect the air bag cable, you will have a dash light on the dash for air bag doing this though.

ABS light comes on 97 Jimmy

The Airbag and ABS are separate systems and un-related, the speedo is related to the ABS light, I think if you run a self test on the system computer there will be a trouble code for the transmission speed sensor, the output of this sensor is used by the ABS and the speedometer. The airbag is most likely a defective rotating contact under the steering wheel, we techs call it a clock-spring contact because of it's shape, it allows the connection from the steering column to the airbag. CAUTION! If you want to change out this contact the steering wheel needs to be pulled, follow factory recommendations on dis-arming the airbag, it can be very dangerous if you don't.

2000 gmc jimmy brake lights

I had the same problem with my 2001. I found it was the multi function switch. Better known as your turn signal switch. I found that the hazard switch portion of it had shorted. replacement is fairly easy, aftermarket part is available, much cheaper than GM.
