1. You are going to need a steering wheel puller.
2. You remove the steering wheel center.

3. you remove the large steering column nut, then install steering wheel puller to remove the steering wheel. It is necessary to mark the shaft to the steering wheel so that it will go back in the same position.

Once the steering wheel is removed, you can see the turn signal switch. There is one center screw that holds the turn signal switch inside the steering wheel hub.

Once the screw is removed the signal can be lifted up over the steering wheel shaft.

Now leaving that, go underneather the dash area and remove the smallpanel around the steering wheel shaft. There you will find a large electrical connector with all the wires that are used in the steering column. This connector can either be fed up thru the column or by disconnecting all of the wires and feeding them up through the column.

this will remove the old switch. The new switch and its wiring harness must now be fed back down the steering column and then reconnected to the large electrical connector.

Now re-install the new switch, screw the turn signal stem back into the switch assembly and the re-install the steering wheel, according to the aligments marks you made, otherwise your steering wheel will be off centered. Tighten down steering wheel center nut, and other panels. Check operation of switch.
Factory manuel gives mechanics 1 hour to do this, but it cam take up to 4 hours.

The pedal for the brakes has a switch above it on the connecting shaft. Look to see if it is loose, boken or disconnected. There may be more than one switch also.

Sounds like you need a new turn signal switch. On most newer vehicles the turn signal and 4 ways are all together in one assembly. Sadly everything is tied together. Good luck.

Brake lights. Cab light works when brake pedal is depressed.Turn signals work properly but no brake lights at rear.Is it in the colum? Vehicle is a 1995 ford F250 4X4


Hi, if the schematic is right, the cab stop light is on the same fuse as the others. And, since there is no relay, the likely problem is the turn signal switch or the wire leading to the turn signal switch. Please let me know if you have questions or need instructions, and thanks for using FixYa.

I would suspect the turn signal switch, turn the left turn signals on and grab the knob for the hazard switch and tug and push on it, if they start to work, the turn signal switch is bad.

My signal lights stopped canceling after a turn. What do I do?


You will need to replace the turn signal switch, theres a spring that breaks or the little plastic tip that turns them off after a turn, sometime you can open the switch and repair the spring but if the plastic arm breaks then replace the switch, this is simple to replace, remove the screws from the bottom of the cover around the column then remove the two screws holding the switch and out comes the switch, when you get it pulled away a bit then remove the two or three connectors to switch, you dont have to remove the wheel, heres a picture of the signal switch it also controls the wipers and high beams, good luck, hope this helps.fc2c9a4.jpg9633d87.jpg

You may need to replace the flasher,the turn signals use a different flasher but the same wireing so that would be the first place i would start.
