1999 Chevrolet Suburban 1500 from North America
Blinker sound will not turn off
Interior light come on randomly and drain battery.
I am the first owner of my 1999 Chevy Suburban.
We really enjoy the car.
Recently the blinker sound will not turn off unless the brake pedal is pressed.
Interior lights turn on randomly and drain the battery. They will not turn off unless main fuse for all lights is removed from fuse panel which means I can't drive at night.
Does anyone know what causes these problems?
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

I have a 1999 Suburban and the intermittent interior lights may be caused by the rear door electrical connections. The lights were flickering in our car when hitting big bumps in the road. I put double stick tape on the top of the back door so the top electrical connector depresses enough to stop the flicker. I think the top one is the sensor for when the door opens. If this switch becomes weak the interior lights will go on. Hot to cold or cold to hot temperature changes are enough to cause the switch to activate when switch gets older and worn.

I have owned two Suburbans, loved them both, but came to the conclusion that all Suburbans are shipped to England and wired by Lucas... I have many joys with signal lights, wipers, cigarette lighters.. Oh yeah! But the '89 especially was still a wonderful safe vehicle.

In my case it was the hazard light connector. Disassemble the steering wheel covers, remove the connection, clean it well, put it all back together, problem solved.
