Dimmer switch in turn signal/wiper switch does not work

How do I go about changing the turn signal/dimmer multifunction switch? Does the steering wheel have to be pulled to do this. I know that in fords you can r&r switch without pulling steering but just don't know about a buick.

No Low beam head lights and no turn signals or hazard lights. Already changed the multi function switch. What to look for next?


When you had the wiring loose for multifunction switch, if possible, knowing what color wire did what, using wiring diagram, I believe you could have used jumper wire to bypass multifunction switch to see if this or that system would work, if it doesn't, the multifunction switch probably wasn't the problem. On older vehicles it was probably easier to do something like that. Could be issue with wiring in steering column or clock spring, where applicable.Your low beam from dimmer switch goes through drl relay, with relay not energized. At the low beam head lamp, tan wire is voltage, black wire is ground.

My left turn signal turns wipes on and front signal doesn't work. Whats problem


This is going to sound like a stupid question, but are you using the turn signal properly? The turn signals are on the left of the steering wheel and wiper controls are on the right side of the steering wheel on you car.

Have replaced the wiper motor and the wiper switch on my 1998 ford explorer and wipers still only work on high what next?


Try the multifunction switch (the turn signal switch on the left hand side of the steering wheel). This is a$65.00 item at the parts store or ~$45.00 on line. It takes ~ 20 minutes to change. Torx screws hold the unit in place. Phillips screws secure the cover.

Turn signals quit working??


Good place to start is to check bulbs. Also, have multifunction switch and its circuits tested. The multifunction switch is the blinker arm, and the components it attaches to inside the steering column. Usually tied in with things like high beams, headlight dimmer/daytime running lights, wipers, cruise, etc.

Where is the wiper motor on a 2003 gmc sierra


Replace the multifunction switch where the wiper switch and turn signal are located on the steering wheel. There are two screws that hold it on and you can remove the cover on the steering wheel with a tork wrench #6 I think, could be next size down #4 then remove the two screws holding the switch in place.

My dash lights all go out when i try and put the turn signal on. which arnt working either. car runs fine otherwise.


Your turn signal switch is multifunctioning (controls cuise, wipers, dimmer, etc.). Your dash lights are wired into the same circuit (when you turn your headlights on, the dash lights should come on). Try replacing the turn signal switch there at your steering column. Takes about 20 minutes to install and around $60.
