SOURCE: brake light switch

In the 04 models there has been a recall on a part in the brake lights. You can look it up and it gives you a number to call GMC. If you truck is one of the affected models they will replace it for you.

The Low pressure switch and the compressor cycling switch are one in the same.

SOURCE: Cannot locate where the a/c clutch cycle switch is... there is no power in the wires to the clutch and fuses are okay.

The a/c clutch is attached to the front of your a/c compressor. It is the part that your serpentine belt runs on. It is either engaged or not based on the demand of the a/c system. It will not run if it senses low pressure in the freon supply line so you might try having the system checked for proper fill before replacing the clutch.

2006 GMC Canyon manuel transmission. When the clutch is fully engaged, there is a high pitch grinding noise. It is also hard to get into gear. What could this be?


What it sounds like is that your pilot bearing has gone out, and that could be causing the high pitch grinding noise and when the gears are hard to shift that is a tale tale sign of a bad/weak pressure plate and or master cylinder. I would recommend changing out the clutch, pilot bearing, pressure plate, slave cylinder and having the flywheel resurfaced.

'05 Frontier w/ 6-speed manual transmission. Push the clutch straight in and truck will not start. Push the clutch in and hard to the left the truck will start just fine. No problems with starter,...


It's called the clutch switch and it's supposed to only allow current to the starter when the clutch pedal is depressed all the way down, releasing the clutch. It's bolted in front of the clutch pedal. Yours must be bad or shifted to the left somehow. Have it checked, then repositioned or replaced.

In order to start my pickup, I must press down on the clutch pedal. The switch mechanism that allows me to start the vehicle is I suspect misaligned for it requires a very HARD depression on the clutch...


Maeriz1,

Yes you can adjust it yourself. It is not difficult except for getting at it one must be a contortionist. The switch is located somewhere under the Instrument Panel or in some cases under the Hood near the firewall dependant upon what make and model the vehicle is. It will be mounted typically close to where the Clutch Push-Rod goes through the floorpan. Adjusting it requires loosening the Mounting Screws and re-positioning the switch so that it is actuated sooner. Typically move it in the direction opposite the direction the Clutch Push Rod travels to release the clutch. If the vehicle is equipped with a Hydraulically actuated Clutch, the Switch will be located near the bottom of the Instrument Panel with an Arm attached to the Clutch Pedal near the pivot point, Move the Switch closer to the actuating arm. I sincerely hope this information helps you.

I own a 1992 gmc jimmy and I was wondering if the clutch sensor has anything to do with starting. Sometimes when I start it, it takes a few times before it starts. Am not pushing the clutch far enough down...


Yes, there is a clutch switch which must be activated (closes switch) for the starter to engage. This is a safety item so the truck won't start in gear. With time it may begin to fail, this should be any easy fix. And yes from time to time you may not be pushing the clutch in far enough to actuate this switch.
I hope this may have helped,
Tom

I have a 2001 gmc sierra 2wd 5.3 engine starts for 2 seconds and shuts down any help would be great thank you


THERE IS SOMETHING ABOUT THE CLUTCH ON THE SIERRA THAT IF DOUBLE PUSHED DOWN IT ACTS LIKE A CHOKE. CANNOT QUITE REMEMBER. JUST LEAVE IT OUT OF GEAR AND DO NOT PRESS THE CLUTCH. THEY FLOOD. i KNOW THIS SOUNDS STUPID. I HAD ONE ONCE AND AFTER ABOUT SIX MONTHS IT STARTED DOING IT. ITS SOMETHING TO DO WITH THE CLUTCH AND EXCELERATOR AND HOW YOU PRESS THEM. IT MIGHT BE YOU DO NOT TOUCH THE EXCELERATOR AT ALL JUST THE CLUTCH. I CANNOT REMEMBER HAVE A FIDDLE WITH DIFFERENT WAYS OF TRYING TO START THE CAR. CLUTCH DOWN ECCELERATOR DOWN CLUTCH OFF ECCELERATOR OFF. OR EVEN DOUBLE THE CLUTCH TO STOP THE CHOKE. ITS SOMETHING LIKE THAT. PHONE THE DEALER THEY WILL KNOW IN THE WORK SHOP. SAY A SILLY WOMAN SAID IF YOU LIKE. LET ME KNOW.
