I have a turn signal switch problem

I bought a 1988 Cadillac Seville. The tun signal switch is broken do to the fact that the former oweners daughter broke the switch. Is there any way to fix the switch with out replacing the whole column. Another question I have is a friend of mine has a complete colum for this car but he lost the keys to it can I replace the ignition switch to a switch that is not coded?

The arm to the turn signal switch is loose in the colum the arm is still there but you really have to fight with it to make it work. And the control for the high and low beam for the head lights are controled by the same switch but beeing that they are controled by the same switch I can not switch from high to low beam.

Well the brake light power goes from the pedal switch thru the turn signal switch. So the turn signal or hazard switch could cause the problem.

My turn signals dont work i have a 98 cadillac deville how do i go about getting it fix

check the fuses on the car first
if you look in the book that came with the car, look at the table of contents and find the fuse box diagram. locate the fuse for the turn signal and replace it if it is broken.

if the fuse is not broken then check the relays on that controls the light.
if that is ok then you need to change the flasher on the car
