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

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.

In most cases this problem is caused by the rotating ribbon circuit contact under the steering wheel having a broken filament, the part is known as a clock spring contact, u will need to properly disarm the airbag and remove the steering wheel to access the part. WARNING: Failure to disarm the airbag system can result in an unexpected Airbag deployment and possible serious personnel injury disconnect the battery 30 minutes prior to start of work.
