Changing the turn signal switch is a fairly involved process. You'll need to disable and remove the driver's side airbag, the steering wheel, and the SIR coil in the steering column. You'll need a steering wheel puller and a lock plate compressor, in addition to the normal assortment of sockets, screwdrivers and Torx drivers. Autozone has detailed instructions for disabling the airbag, removing the steering wheel, and replacing the switch on their web site. I printed their directions and several of the diagrams and was able to replace the switch without any major problems.

Be prepared to spend some time on this--even the simplest steps can take more time that you expect. Case in point: Step 1--disconnect the negative battery terminal. To do this on my 96 Cutlass required removing a cross member under the hood and the windshield washer reservoir.

Good luck!

Why does turn signal sound all the time unless the br(ake) is pressed?


Taryn, sounds like a faulty turn signal switch, or multi function switch is defective. Check all the bulbs and sockets first for damage wires, burnt wires or bulb socket, cheapest part to change besides bulbs would be the signal flasher or the signal relay if you want to go this route. Below are trouble shooting links you can read or watch.

Brake light trouble right side brake light will not come on but both flashers work also turn signals work older ford truck what could the problem


I have to think the problem is inside the turn signal switch, a poor internal connection. You know the brake signal first goes through the turn switch before it goes to the bulbs. That is why the brake lights and rear turn signal lights share the same filament in the bulb, and the same wire going to those lights. The only difference is the turning side light is affected by the turn signal flasher, causing blinking, while the other side- the non turning side-does not go through the flasher relay, but straight to the bulb from the turn signal switch. Change your turn signal switch and I believe you will solve the problem. Let me know, okay?

Front left turn signal doesnt work


The turn signal circuit is different from the parking lights. So the headlights would not be involved.
You should have power on one side of the bulb for parking lights and the other for turn signals.
If you have no power for the turn signal circuit, I would look at the turn signal switch. It powers each bulb separately.

My blinkers don't work on my car at all and my fuse is fine.


There are several things that can cause your blinkers to not function properly. This could be caused by a defective flasher unit, a malfunctioning turn signal switch, or a broken wire, just to name a few. Electrical system diagnostics must be performed to pinpoint the cause of the problem.

Please also review these articles:

My rear turn signal was not working. I changed the bulb and tried again and this time none of my signals are working, nor my hazard lights. I changed the fuses inside the car but that did not work.


Last thing to try before trouble shooting the wires for a short is the flasher unit. Usually it is located on or near the fuse box and is normally round and silver about 1" in diameter. If that doesn't work, none of the turn signals or flashers will work. You you had flashers but not turn signals I would say look at the switch on the steering column but you have nothing which points to the flasher control.

Chrysler code P0572 need help


Trouble Code: P0572

Brake Switch Signal No. 1 Circuit Low

Trouble Code Conditions:Ignition is on. When PCM recognizes that brake switch is mechanically stuck in the low/on position, a DTC will set. Three global good trips are necessary to turn off MIL.

Possible Causes:

* Brake switch signal circuit is shorted to ground
* BS No. 2 signal open
* Brake switch is damaged or has failed
* PCM has failed

i would check the brake switch first located under dash and when brake is pushed it hits switch turn ignition on and test the wires if all hot then switch is bad, other wise there is a short or bad pcm and these are not easy fixes requires knowledge of car wiring and diagnostic tools/computer
