There is a knob on the dashboard that is just behind the turn signal lever--what is this for? I just bought my first 900 yesterday and didn't notice this knob until later (I was too busy having fun zipping around in traffic, as it's a manual trans!!!)
Unfortunately, I have to wait to get a Haynes for xmas--you gotta let ppl have something to buy you!

Remove the lower dash trim covers from the left side of the Cadillac's dashboard, if so equipped.
Lie on your back under the left dashboard and look up along the left side of the steering column. Illuminate the area with the flashlight to assist in locating the old turn signal flasher, which mounts on a metal bracket, just above and to the left of the steering column.

First of all have you checked the fuse? Then check the relay box for your signal relay, it is as follows. To the left of your left foot, above the pull lever where you open your trunk. For the Flasher relay, you'll have to go behind the steering wheel column and take off that panel. Above the fuse box & to the left of the steering wheel there's a hollow rectangular box looking thing that's big enough to hold cigarettes. The hollow box has a lightbulb knob to the left of it. You can pry out the hollow box with a screwdriver to access the relay.

Hi, this knob commonly behind it has a steel cord that moves the mechanism , probably the cord is loose but it can be set in place again manually, maybe you have to disassembly some parts of dashboard to do it.
On the Impala the flasher is located behind the dashboard, just to the right of the steering wheel. You have to remove the dashboard to get to it. It square and about 2" long. To remove the dash: - remove the two fuse compartments doors or lids, that are on either end of the dashboard. there are two screws to remove on both sides.
- Remove the kick plate beneath the dash on the passenger side. - Remove screws beneath the dash on drivers side - Adjust steering wheel to the full down position - Move Shift lever all the way down
Inside the steering column, there will be a plastic like knob. This knob should be located right by the signal lever. It sounds like this knob has broken or worn down so that it doesn't snag the lever to cause it to turn off again. On some vehicles, the knob will be inside the lever assembly and this would mean that the entire signal arm will need to be changed. The arm should only be held in by 3 or 4 screws.
The Hazard and turn signals share the same relay module located in the dashboard behind the hazard switch. Remove the trim by prying from the sides (Either side of the Cup holder drawer and Card drawer). Pry the hazard switch assembly out from the dashboard. The relay is part of the hazard switch assembly.
Unclip the wiring terminal from the relay. replace with appropriate relay. Part costs under $50.00 delivered from Import Parts Specialists.
is it the temperature control knob or the fan speed knob? the temperature control knob is hooked to a cable that operates a valve in the engine compartment. sounds like this is your trouble area...you can open the hood and locate the heater control valve near the firewall...have someone turn the knob to see if the valve lever opens/closes. if it does it is bad. if it does not move there is a problem in the dashboard behind the heater control unit.
