1999 Chev. Monte Carlo steering wheel make's a scratchy slidding,

My 1999 Chev. Monte Carlo make's a kinda 'scratchy' noise when I turn the steering wheel. Someone said that it is probably my air bag, and a couple of other's said it was probably a bearing in the steering colum. The horn on my steering wheel is kinda taking on a sorta 'deformed' shape, like something is trying to get out, which make'z me believe it is the air bag. What do you think? How do I fix or find instruction's on fixing the air bag? I would really appreciate your expert opnion as soon as possible so that it dosn't just POP Out one day and SMASH me in the face. Thanx !!!!!! Sixx:AMa

It is pretty easy, there is not much labor involved if it has anti-lock brakes in the rear you will also have to un-plug the wire harness attached to hubs.

put your foot on the brake before you try to take it out of park. if it is a console shifter there may be something you lift up or move with your finger before you can take it out of park

SOURCE: Air bag light

Usually a lit airbag can be attributed to faulty wiring, crash sensor behind the front bumper, bad connection between the airbag and lower part of the steering column, or a faulty airbag module. I've also heard of clockspring wiring harness problems. An airbag "on" light means that your airbag system is INACTIVE. Be careful. Check for a safety recall. You must have the battery disconnected for at least 15 minutes for a reset and double check your battery. I know it seems simple, but a poor battery will trip a code. 15 minutes allows the SDM (Sensing Diagnostic Module or Airbag computer) to discharge the backup power for airbag. Do this especially if you're poking around the controls. It sounds like a bad connection which is not allowing communication between all parts of the system. Also check the fuse (can't hurt).

75 motcarlo sarerer make a noes wall stearing


What in the hell is a saterer or faywell? What is a noes wall stearing?

I am guessing you have noise coming from your steering pump. This is most likely caused by a faulty steering pump. If there is a leak, you can try to top off the pump with steering fluid and "burp" the system by turning the steering wheel all the way to the left and then right with someone topping it off. If the sound goes away, check for where it is leaking.

Most likely a wheel bearing, Take it for a drive, When you hear the noise move the steering wheel slightly right then left and listen for a pitch change in the whine, What ever way the pitch changes, Say you turn left and it changes? Its the left bearing and same for the right.

Steering column locked


When you get the key into the ignition, Try turning the wheel to one side or the other as you turn the key. Some vehicle's steering columns will "lock" if the wheel is turned to tightly when the ignition gets turned off. Hope that helps.

Ignition switch replacement 1983 monte carlo


you have to take off the steering wheel.if you dont have the right tools to do so i would not attempt it.the turn signal switch has to be moved it just pulls over the end of the column.then there is a torx head screw at about 1 oclock in the column that has to be removed.and the ign.just pulls out.the dimmer switch is kinda tricky.a locksmith usually dont charge to much to do this job.it would probably cost you more to buy the tools you need to do it yourself
