Questions & Answers
Because your vehicle is older, I'm thinking it might have something to do with a switch.
There are several it could be.
First, if a door switch is bad, or worn out, or out of adjustment, this might be the cause.
I think I am right in saying the way the light turns on is to ground the circuit.
When you open a door, the door switch has a spring inside to affect a ground situation, turning on the light.
Check the door switches, I think you have 5.
Could be a worn out dome-light assembly.
I've had this happen.
It can turn on all by itself if it is worn out.
Finally, could be the headlight switch worn out.
God bless your efforts.

99 Suburban Windshield Wiper Issue.
It sounds to me as though both of the wipers have slipped. The operation of the wipers sounds fine except they do not park in the correct location. To fix this, start the wipers and then turn them off to ensure they think they are in the parked location. At the base of each wiper there is a small cover that can be easily removed with a small screwdriver. Underneath each cover you will see a nut. Loosen the nut somewhat and reposition each windshield wiper to the proper park location. Once done, tighten the nuts securely but do not over tighten, then reinstall the caps. Cycle your wipers on and off a few times to ensure the wipers park correctly. I have owned a lot of vehicles and ALL of my GM vehicles have had this problem.

When my 1999 Chevy Suburban is cold, I start it up
Possibly the throttle position sensor. Easiest way to test is connect a scanner and go to real time data mode. With the key on,press the accelerator slowly and watch the throttle position change on the scanner. If it doesn't register a change when you start opening the throttle, replace the sensor.

I have a 99 suburban
have you had the gauge tested to do go out of range over time. it could just not read lower readings i would check this before anything else, rule out the gauge having a fault.41 lbs PSI hot and ~55 lbs cold based on the dash gauge should be around these figures plus or minus, could also check vacuum lines for the engine breather. if i remember these also adjust the pressure as well.

Did you ever think of having it diagnosed by a qualified repair shop ? Thier are aspects associated with this system you have no clue about. That's the first thing every one goes for , changing the switch . It flashes because codes are stored .

Transfer Case Shift Control Module
The transfer case shift control module uses the VIN information for calculations that are required for the different calibrations used based on axle ratio, transmission, tire size, and engine. The system does not know which calibration to use without this information.
The direct battery supply line (CKT 1640) provides the power to the module and motor circuitry.
Transfer Case Encoder Motor
The transfer case encoder motor consists of a permanent magnet (PM) DC motor and gear reduction assembly. It is located on the left hand side (drivers side) of the transfer case. When activated it turns the sector shaft of the transfer case (clockwise or counter clockwise) to shift the transfer case. The encoder motor is controlled with a pulse width modulated (PWM) circuit within the transfer case shift control module. This circuit consists of a driver on both the Motor A and Motor B circuits. The encoder motor is bi-directional to allow the motor to shift the transfer case from 2HI or 4HI to neutral and 4LO positions.

Your best bet ,take it to a qualified repair shop .

Can the black box under dash thats the alarm system be removed permently
Not that simple to just disconnect it. Otherwise thieves would have no problem stealing vehicles with security systems. The black box communicates with the engine computer, and then the computer enables the vehicle to start and stay running.
That isn't a bypass technique, it is a reset procedure. Apparently it has got to the point that the reset doesn't fix the problem. Now you may need a new black box-the theft deterrent module-or it may be a problem with the ignition switch. Sounds like the box, but not sure. Ask a pro near you.
Just a heads up- that black box (TDM) can be very expensive. A company called newrockies has developed a module that bypasses the security system for good. this module signals the pcm that all is good, and no problem with the security. They sell this module for about $250. (A GM black box can be around $800, so you are better off with newrockies, and be done forever with security issues.) Google newrockies and you will find out more about it.
