Question about 1999 GMC Jimmy
May be a problem with your 4way flasher switch - may be partially engaged or failing and if so, pressing the brake pedal will stop the flasher. Try turning the switch on and off a few times.

There's speed sensors at each wheel. You may have got some contamination in front of one of them... sounds like the abs is trying to compensate for un equal speed at each wheel... and something may be blocking a proper read at one of the wheels...

I have notice that this is a common problem. The socket most of the time goes bad, I don't know why but they just do. You can pick them up at any parts store for around 5.00 each. If you don't have a volt meter and ground straps to test it right, then I would try changing the sockets out. Quick and easy. Let us know how it goes.

I had the same problem and I took the switch a part due to the almost $600 new one. You have to be patient everything is plastic. But once a part I found that the contacts were tracking ( a lot of dirt and grease build up.). The steering wheel doesn't need to come off just remove the two plastic covers. remove the two hex screws that hold it and disassemble it the switch will have to be torn down further and there is the copper contacts in there wipe with rag and re-assemble. Saved me $600 for part and probably 300-400 for labour.
Total time from start to finish 2hrs. Hope this helps.
