I have recently purchase a 1999 GMC Jimmy. the remote was not working when I got the car and the dealer said it needed a change of battery.changed the battery and now everynight without fail the alarm kept on going off at ungodly hour.I have since went to the GMC Dealer and they gave me a brand new remote and have configured it. However, the alarm still goes off. any advise ?? the alarm is driving me crazy.

Check the door switches and make sure they are OK, and is the battery voltage OK.
#69 of 130 aftermarket alarm????
Feb 09, 2008 (4:34 pm)
I recently bought an 86 Jimmy in great shape from an auction. After taking it home I noticed an LED lit up, the doors locked and I could not crank the vehicle. I did find a GM goodwrench box (which looks to be an aftermarket alarm or something) next to the fuse box and a off and on switch next to it which I have already tried to disengage to no avail. I have to disconnect the battery to reset everything and it will crank. Now does anyone know if I can get a remote from GM, or does anyone know how to disengage it?? Help is greatly appreciated.
#70 of 130 Break Light on drivers side wont light up
Feb 10, 2008 (8:52 am)
I recently bought a 1999 GMC Jimmy SLE and noticed the break light on the drivers side wont light up. The other break lights as well as all other lights work as they should...just that break light. It's not the fuse and it's not the bulb. Any ideas what I can check next? Thank you.
#71 of 130 2000 Jimmy electrical issues, spirits??
Feb 18, 2008 (7:59 am)
My 2000 Jimmy is haunting me with the courtesy lamps going on by themselves the tail gait popping and the drivers window operating whenever it wants. Ive noticed quite a few electrical issues with these trucks on various forums, was there any manufacturer's culpability reported?
Anyway, I have to remove the fuse to keep the lights from draining the battery but, If I want to switch to or from 4wd I have to replace the (light) fuse and then switch drives and then stop and remove this fuse or the tail gait will pop open!! Any advice or suggestions?? It gets dark here and we have alot of snow!

My 2000 Jimmy fuel gauge shows full almost of the time, then with out warning it goes to empty for a few seconds, then back to full. Then the low fuel indicator light will come on. I never know how much fuel is in the tank. Any suggestions?

#74 of 130 2000 Jimmy ignition switch??
May 28, 2008 (11:15 pm)
Here are my many problems: First, my key started getting stuck in the ignition, in the position where the radio and lights are still on, and would not turn back any further, until you hear a slight "click". Then they will turn back and come out. I figured out, eventually, that this "clicking" can be controlled by the button you push to shift into drive/reverse/park/etc. Also, the door locks will decide every now and then to quit working, but only for a short period of time. The heater won't work every now and then either, it just blows cold air. If you mess with it enough, it eventually turns warm. I noticed in a few other topics, it seemed like this could be the ignition switch gone bad? Please help me!! Thank you!
