Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

1999 GMC Jimmy Owner Comments

problem #2

Sep 012010

Jimmy 3.2L V6

  • Automatic transmission
  • 77,000 miles


Sounds like a potential fault in design. Mine was fixed by the dealer/garage when I purchased the vehicle. It has to do with the security light coming on when it shouldn't and failure of the vehicle to get fuel. There was a chip in the ignition switch. The ignition had to be replaced.

I have already replaced the fuel pump, battery, alternator, and spring coil. Nothing is helping. It will turn over but will NOT START. I don't know what to do except to give it to the junk yard. It's a 1999 and I have only had it for a year when all these problems started occurring.
