I have a 1996 GMC Jimmy. I bought her new and have put 127,000 + miles
on her. She is a gem. However, for the last 27,000 miles the electric
windows have been acting up. The front passenger window will sometimes
cause the dome light to flash when it is going up or down, and
sometimes the dome light stays on (have had a drained battery from
this). The driver window will sometimes "stick" so that is doesnít
go all the way up. Not fun when it starts raining. Both problems work
themselves out and then start again at random. Now to add insult to
injury, her gauges are acting up. Her oil pressure gauge will drop
when Iím sitting at a stop light, and pick up again when I accelerate.
The temperature gauge will climb past 210 and then drop to 150 (I
donít think the temperature could drop that fast if I lived in the
Arctic even). Iíve talked to several mechanics as I donít trust the
people at my dealers shop (they screwed me once, and wonít get a
second chance), and they are all puzzled. I figure it has to be a bad
fuse, or relay or something.
Your suggestions are greatly appreciated. (Not all Jimmyís are lemons,
mineís just sick)
