    That's normal, mine does it also. If you turn the ing on & wait, does it go out quicker? You could try to pull codes & see if there is anything in there, but like I said, I think that is normal for the 99's.

    it has always came on when you turn on the ignition but would go out,now after it goes out it will come on again about 10 seconds later and stay on for 5-10 seconds then go out again.

    Disarm alarm if so equipped.
    Run/Off switch to OFF
    Ignition Key: ON,OFF,ON,OFF,ON (and leave ON)

    Press LEFT turn signal switch TWICE. Wait for 1 or 2 flashes..(either 1 or 2 is OK)

    Press RIGHT turn signal switch ONCE => turn signal will flash 1 time

    Press RIGHT turn signal switch ONCE => turn signal flashes 2 times

    Press RIGHT turn Signal switch ONCE => turn signals flash 3 times

    Press LEFT turn signal switch ONCE. TROUBLE CODES WILL NOW BE DISPLAYED (stream)

    TO CLEAR ANY CODES,,,=> PRESS & HOLD LEFT signal switch for 5 seconds. => turn
    signal will now flash twice to confirm memory is clear.

    Turn ignition OFF.
    Try this
