Question about 1997 GMC Jimmy
You may have an ignition switch that is starting to go bad. The next time the problem occurs try wiggling the key cylinder slightly to see if you can make the problem go away or turn the vehicle off and restart it and see if that helps. I see a fair number of these switches go bad and many have the same symptoms you are describing. What I usually find is that one of the internal contact points goes bad and won't always make a good enough connection to get power out to that circuit. Hope this helps and good luck!

Thank you SO much for this tip! It looks like for me it is the ignition switch. I jiggled and wiggled but nothing happened. Then I gave it a firm knock on the top down with the palm of my hand and pow. Everything turned on! So where to find a NEW switch. . . But thank you SO much for the tip GREAT help! I joined the board just to pass the good word along.
