First, I want to go ahead and thank anyone who takes the time to try to answer my question. Second, the latest model provided in the drop box was for a 1990 model, that is what I selected because it was the oldest. My truck is actually a 1985 GMC Jimmy 4x4 with a 305. I recently changed the starter on the truck but now my headlights will not come on. I have already checked the fuses and they all appear to be good. The starter will start the truck and it was installed according to the manual. can anyone help me out? Could the headlight switch have gone?
Wen warming up the truck, every time, morning, afternoon and night, the idle goes up and down for about 5 minute or till warm up. It doesn't have trouble starting and runs great after warm up. No codes or check engine light on.
Please help. Any advise or info would b greatly appreciated. Thank u.

It is actually a 1987. Does not want to start on first try. Cranks over, i was told something about a starter clutch, didnt realize that they are on cars too. Obviously gas and power is good, anyone got any ideas.
The tailgate window only goes down part way on one side and seems to bind up. I took off the cover & found some rusted metal pieces/arms? in there. what are they called so I can order the correct parts?
thanks for the responce oakman...i went thru the panel originally, but with the window up, the motor mechanism is in the way of the two screws on the cylinder. the does tailgate come apart somehow or do i have to take all the window guts and glass out instead?
how do i access the key cylinder on the rear power window? the power window works from the interior switch but not from the outside key. i cant access it in order to check the connection.
