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.
Re: dimmer switch in turn signal/wiper switch does not...
I have a 98 Century so I'm not sure how much they have in common but I just changed my trun signal switch last weekend w/o pulling the steering wheel. There is a video on youtube of a guy doing it www.youtube.com/watch?v=exybDRDNiCo

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.
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.
YOU HAVE TO REPLACE WHOLE MULTIFUNCTION SWITCH WITH TURN SIGNAL SWITCH, LIGHT SWITCH, WIPER SWITCH HAS TO BE REPLACED.YOU HAVE TO TURN OFF RADIO FIRST THEN REMOVE NEGATIVE BATTERY CABLE.THEN WAIT 20 MINUTES UNTIL AIRBAG IN STEERING WHEEL DISARM.THEN REMOVE THE MULTIFUNCTION SWITCH LOCATED ON THE LEFT SIDE OF THE STEERING COLUMN.YOUR WIPER SWITCH ON THE MULTIFUNCTION SWITCH.
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.
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.
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. And disconnect the wiring Replace the multifunction switch where the wiper switch and turn signal are located on the steering wheel.

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.
