SOURCE: 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

There was a recall a while back ago for this problem. Check with your local dealer and see if the recall is still active. The problem is the circuit board on the wiper motor assemble where the wire harness connects. The solder the plastic clip on the board breaks and will cause this problem and at worst the wipers don't work at all. If you good with soldering, it's a simple fix by just re-soldering the wire harness clip back on and if you like you can buy the replacement circuit board at Auto Zone. The will have the step by step instructions for you to get the job done, a light tap will once and a while fix the problem but you may loose the whole function of the wipers. Good luck.

Monowiper works fine when in full wipe but when in intermittent wipe and park mode it stops 3 inches too high ??

It sounds like the wiper parking position relay has failed. You see, when you turn on the wiper a series of relays on the actuator side are energized and cause the wiper motor to turn on and move the mono-wiper through its arc.

When it reaches the maximum extent of its travel, the wiper circuitry then reverses the arms direction and it swings back. This goes on until you turn off the wipers by turning off the ignition key or turning off the power switch.

When you turn off the wipers, the parking circuitry is activated. The central feature of this part of the wiper circuitry is the parking position relay. As the wiper begins to de-energize the parking position relay is activated. The position relay ensures that the wiper returns gently to the same position each time you turn off the wipers.

If the parking position relay weren't there, the wipers would park wherever they stopped on the windshield. However, the relay circuitry charges when you hit the off button and ensures that the wiper arm sweeps down to the same spot each time. If it does not activate, the wiper arm stops as soon as you turn off the power, as noted. This means that the wiper might, one time, stop in the center of the windshield or it might stop all the way to the left of right.

Aside from its complete failure, manufacturers build in telltales that indicate when the circuit is about to go. One of them is the wiper blade's parked position. Normally, the position relay ensures that the de-energized wiper circuit settles gently to the bottom of the windshield, as noted. However, if the position relay is failing most manufacturers have it park some distance from the bottom of the windshield to give you a head's up that the relay is on its way out.

Since the wiper circuits are fairly involved, it is best to leave it to a trained professional to do the work. However, if you feel you have the expertise to do it, your first step is to obtain the serviced manual for your vehicle. The service manual will give you the step-by-step repair procedure.

Since all parts of the wiper circuitry are related be careful, if you are repairing it yourself, that you replace each component according to the instructions as you might damage something else inadvertently.

99 towncar replaced windshield then wipers stopped working.replaced motor.few days ago car key would not come out after placing in park and turning it off had to do this several time to get key to come...

Sounds like a possible ignition switch or ignition actuator problem to me. I would recommend getting it checked by a professional so you do not end up replacing MORE parts that do not fix the problem.

Ignition switch won't turn and car won't go into gear 1995 Chevy Lumina

Make sure you don't have the steering wheel locked. If the key still won't turn then you will have to replace the ignition lock cylinder. The gear shifter on any car should not move unless key is turned.
