Your truck has no ECU (computer) it has a (ESC)-electronict spark control. this has the ability to change the ability to change the ignition timing under any and all operating conditions. Data from various remote sensors (coolant temperature, throttle position, rpm,ect.) is transmitted to the ESC. The ESC computes the information and triggers the ignition spark at precisely the right instant.
hope this helps...

Towing a 5x8 trailer with my Jimmy and now it won't start


Is your battery charged if so!!! I would look for the speed control box it is located under the glove box. It is a little white box with a lot of wires in it. this box is with the computer but there are separate box's. It controls everything from shifting to starting to the gauges in your dash You DO NOT have to replace the computer Good Luck

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.

1997 gmc jimmy fuel pump relay location


I believe it's the middle relay in the glove box. You should feel the relay click on when you turn the key's, but you only have 2 seconds.
