Parking Brake Light

Asked by Sep 14, 2011 at 01:27 AM about the 1993 GMC Sierra 1500 C1500 Standard Cab LB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 1993 Sierra 1500 started doing three things at once intermittently for a while the parking brake light would come on, the odometer and the heater stopped working... I would turn off the truck and restart it and it would be fine for a while, it is now to the point it does not turn off the heater does not turn on and no odometer. Put it in drive and it does not move forward unless you give it gas. Anyone have any ideas or suggestions?

I have been having the same problem, I just bought a 93 ext cab 5.7l v8, this summer. The first time I put the parking break on it stayed on for almost a month. Everytime I start it and turn it off, there is a loud clicking noise that comes from the passenger side floor board, my mechanic friend and I think its the heater blend door trying to open, but I was wondering if anyone else has had the same issue. Also my odometer that you click( the trip) has never worked, but the actual odometer works. Two days ago my turn signals just quit working all together, but my hazard lights still work fine, I'm going too Autozone to buy the big black turn signal fuse to see if thats that the problem, My A/C has never worked but my heater works fine as too my knowledge. 1993 Extd.

Reach down a Manual pull the parking brake pedal up this should resolve the problem with the brake. How is the Idel? is it rough or intermittent? How are the headlights DIM or FULLPOWER?
