The lever is part of the multifuntion switch located under the covers in the steering column. Disconnect the battery, remove the screws from the bottom cover [ has holes to access screws ], them it's held in with a couple screws. easy to change.
the turn signal flasher is a small canister-shaped or rectangular unit located under the dash, either in a clip adjacent to the steering column or in the convenience center which is located located under the right side of the dashboard and houses relays and other components. The fuse.faulty flasher unit a broken switch or a loose or open wire. We have eliminated the switch, I would check all fuses inside and out, you can replace the flasher with the hazard flasher as if I remember correctly they are the same shape and size, then it is just a matter with a tester light running it from the column to the sockets and finding the break. Hope this helps Tim
I have a solution for you and it is your turn signal switch. I replaced mine and all of the lights work now. It is a pain to put in since you have to take off the steering wheel to replace ti but it will work after that. The switch is less than sixty dollars but ti will save you from getting a ticket
Recheck ALL the wiring, check the brake light switch and signal switch. Either on could have gone bad due to its age. Them suspect the controller for the lights. What do the 4 ways do? I think I would be suspecting the signal switch.
ah go to oriely and rent a wheel puller pullsteering wheel and small snap ring follow inst in puller case tou will square cover and switch will bolt on with a couple screws let me know if you get stuck tell fixya bouy me ok
Your description matches 'bad ground' pretty well.
To locate the grounds, I recommend you purchase a Haynes (1st choice) or Chilton service manual for your Lumina and keep it in your car.
There will be many points at which various items are grounded.
Either of these manuals will have complete electrical diagrams and once you have familiarized yourself with the way they are presented, you will be able to locate any of your wiring.
Having the manuals will likely save you money far beyond their $20-$30 cost as you can try to assess problem areas before turning your car over for repairs and perhaps catch a dishonest service shop ripping you off.
for both issues, could possibly be the flasher unit for the blinkers.....which could be separate from the hazard flasher unit...(happened on my 92 chevy lumina) or the actual turn signal switch which is located in the steering column....not the stick you push, but the part inside that the lever controls (also happened on my lumina............3 times)
start by checking the flasher....its cheap maybe 3-4$ for a new unit.....if thats not it and you figure out its the switch, go to a junkyard.....its wayyyy cheaper
One problem I have had with smoke coming from the steering column is from the turn signal switch. The contacts get worn and for some reason it smokes and also gets hot!!! Replace the turn signal switch and this should fix the problem.
