GMC Jimmy Problems
The heater core under the right side of the dashboard may leak engine coolant which can puddle on the passenger front floor. The loss of coolant may cause an engine overheating condition. Our technicians tell us that removal of the dash board is necessary to replace the heater on these vehicles.

Replaced the cruise control, hazard switch. Replaced brake senser on brake pedal. Three times. Worked for a little while. Now I have no horn, no brke lights, no dome lights. And again no curise control. I can tell when my brk lights aren't working when cruise control does not.

The multifunction switch may have a short circuit, which may cause the stop lamps and rear hazard lamps to fail. Stop lights that fail to operate may cause a crash. Dealers will replace the hazard switch carrier. (Note: This campaign is an expansion of a previous recall; see 01V364)
