SOURCE: when i turn on the front defroster the air comes

The door that changes position in your ductwork to direct airflow is not functioning properly. There is an actuator that operates off vacuum that makes the door open and close. The most common cause of this condition is a vacuum leak. Check all the vacuum hoses and make sure they are properly connected and are not brittle and cracked.

SOURCE: air bag light stays on

There is an issue. Clearing the code does not fix the problem... Pull the code and investigate what it indicates. Commonly, there is a sensor in the front that gets corroded connections. Replacement comes with new harness.

SOURCE: Low beam lights will not

you have a bad switch ...the one you use to turn signal works the bright and dim lights too so with that in mind you need to replace it as soon as possible because at any time you could loose your lights all together and that could be very dangerous....i'll try to get a diagram for you if i can find one...until then drive safe

SOURCE: turn signals are inop. fuses

I wish i had more information. Replacing the turn signal switch sounds to be right. Also you might want to refer to your owners manual about relays.

Turn signal lever does not return automaticaly and air bag light is on constantly

You have a lever inside the steering housing that gets tripped to shut it off. Sometimes it breaks off. The air bag light is a problem that I believe is a Recall thing. But mileage or time may be gone out of date.

Problem with right turn signal lever not resetting and turning off right signal after turning corner

You will probably need to remove the steering wheel which means disconnecting the air bag. Not recommended for owners without experience.
There is a ring around the shaft that pushes the switch arm back to center that is probably broken.

Steering wheel adjustment lever to raise or lower is broken and the turn signal lever on the steering is not working the turn signal lights wont light up so can these lever be replaced or do I replace...

yes they can be replaced , what you are looking for is called a combination switch . it maybe faster and as cheap to find a hole steering wheel at a auto salvage yard. keep in mind that then you would have to change key assembly and ether way use caution with air bag , if there is a chip in your key there is a fuse that has to be removed before disconnecting the battery.then under the dash there will be a yellow wire for the air bag that will have to be disconnected it will be labeled inflatable device caution or warning. if you should want any further help please feel free to ask . Thank you Have a grate day

Flashing airbag light on 97 maxima. Car was in an accident, airbags deployed, replaced bags and controller why won't the light stay off

To manually check air bag codes, turn the key On and push the driver's door switch (at the bottom of the B-pillar) 5 times or more within 7 seconds of turning the key ON. Then watch the air bag light flashing codes. The air bag light will come ON for 3 seconds and then give fast flashes if there is a code. Count the fast flashes as the code. So the air bag light on for 3 seconds and then 8 flashes is a code 8 for the passenger air bag circuit. after counting code clear codes and see if they come back

Turn signal on 97 Lumina not working

Yep ,sounds lke the switch.and yes on the air bag,no big deal.pull the air bag fuse (or better still the battery) wait 15 min then pull the bag . Just unbolts like a horn button.Pull it out and unhook the yellow lead to the clock spring. GM uses a retention clip on the airbag connector,just slide the little clip out then the connector is normal.Place the bag soft side down while it's out.Have to be sure not to turn the wheel once you start the project.
There is a clock like spring that is for the air bag. If it turns too far the spring will break and the bag will not work.As you remove the yellow clock spring it will lock itself,don't push on the lock button,it will spin around inside and break.
A few special tools involved for a clip on the steering shaft and pulling the wheel ,bet the parts store will rent 'em tho

Instructions on how to turn air/heat on in 2003 mitsubishi galant

All those buttons normally are on the center concole. The heat/air knob turns to the red for heat, the more its turned in the red the hotter the heat blows. If your talking about the AC air, that should be on the knob that lets you chose the fan speed, just push it in to turn on the AC a light on the button may come on to let you know its been activated. the Rear Defrost is a single button, i think with 3 wavy lines top to bottom also in the center concole.

Air Bag Light, Brake Light, & ABS Light came on in the dashboard.

Check and see if your alternator is charging
Low voltage will cause those lights to come on, as the computer is shutting down.

To check your alternator you will need a volt meter... WITH the engine running you should have about 14 volts coming out. IF NOT you need to replace the Alternator!

The turn signal switch on 1998 Buick Park Avenue has failed, causing the right front and back signal lights to remain on even with ignition switch off. Need procedure for replacing switch and lever.

REplacing of the turn signal switch invoves the removal of the air bag and steering wheel for acess to the switch ( reminder to unplug the yellow connector for the air bag under dash first).
