    well start with the power windows, your power door lock fuse in the under hood compartment should have 12v's its a 30amp, from there look for power in the ip fuse panel, at the assesory delay relay should be a black/white wire going into it, power should be there, then from there it should have to do with that relay the battery saver relay next to that, the GEM or the master window control switch, let me know what you get from that though, talk to ya soon

Which switches on the steering column? Hope the switches were replaced with the battery disconnected. That alone could be the problem. Who did the switch replacement? If it was a business, you need to return to them and demand they do the work properly.

The turn signals and the emergency flasher are controled by one electronic flasher unit at the far left under the dash on the driver's side. It has a three wire connector and is attached to a mounting bracket with one screw.

Brake lights and turn signals wont work


General motors run the brake lights circuit throught the turn signal switch . Now if the fuse are all good for the brake lights and turn signal circuit . I would be looking at replacing the turn signal switch as they are known to short internaly. I am not sure on your model of car if you can just remove the steering colum housing around the switch or if you have to remove the air bag and pull the steering wheel to reach the turn signal switch . there is a turn signal flasher and a brake light switch also but if either of these were bad it would not effect the operation of the other

Blowing brake light fuses everytime you hit brakes.


Sounds like a short in the steering colume, maybe the turn signal switch, or a wire that the insulation got wore thru in the colume. Unhook break light switch and try the turn signals and hazards again and see what happens, maybe you can isolate it that way. Also if you havent done it already chk.the sockets in tailight housing for corrosion and bear wires, or anything, even ground wires.

Turn signals dont work at all hazards too


if the fuse is good then the multifunction switch is bad. this is the switch in the steering colum. this switch comes with the signal arm that comes out the side of steering colum as a complete assembley. the top and bottom covers of the steering colum must be removed to change switch.
