I had the same thing on my 2000 Jimmy. It turned out to be the multifunction switch on the steering column. It's the one that has the turn signal, cruise control, emergency flashers and high beam switches. It developed an internal short that not only caused the power to remain on, but also turned on the brake lights constantly. The switch is readily available but replacement is not so easy. Good luck.

OK, the multifunction switch has fixed the problems. They do tell me that the right blinker is blinking too fast (this is the one that didn't work at all prior to the multifunction switch replacement). Thank you again for your help.

New problem now, when I turn on the blazer, sometimes the radio light, direction and temp light and dashboard lights work, sometimes they don't. Sometimes they will turn on after I've driven awhile. What could this be?

My first guess would be a dying ignition switch. Do the lights come on when you turn the key on, but before you start? Do all the warning lights come on then, or just some of them? Do the gauges work properly all the time?

Just had the ignition switch replaced a few months ago, along with the multi-purpose switch. Yes all lights work before starting. Sometimes they work after starting, but about half the time. All the gauges are working correctly. Could it possibly be a short in the new ignition switch?

check out this site, new rockies.com, they have a security bypass module , they say is easy to install. readabout the issues and ill bet the TDM will be the cause of all these GMC starting and stalling issues.

I have a Kelsey hayes 310 on my 1995 chevy Cheyenne c3500hd truck but can't get the rear brakes to bleed how do I get the abs motor to engage and self bleed? I tried to use the dirt road method and it didn't work although I hear the motor engage and run for a few seconds each time I hit the brakes. Do you have any ideas? The garage wants $150.00 to bleed the brakes and I am not working....otherwise I would gladly pay that.
