1998 GMC Jimmy QuestionsAir conditioner stops and sometimes when I hit a big bump, it starts again, why (1 answer)
This works sometimes but at other times, I hit the biggest bump I can and it doesn't start blowing. The air is cold enough when it does blow. Doesn't always blow hard when it blows but much better than not working, at least in the front seat
ran fine went into a store and will not start now, I'm at a loss done this kind of work for 30 now after my stroke I lost a lot
I already check bulbs and are good I switch the brake light switch and turn signal switch and still doesn't work.
