My turn signals don't work something is loose in my steering column...I was turning left when I jerk the turning lever a sharp right then the signal lights stop working. It feels like something is broken...


This would be a faulty signal stat..You will have to remove steering wheel in order to replace it....I have no idea what type vehicle you have but that is how it is done ...Signals are designed to cut themselves off ..Inspect all areas and components while steering wheel is removed for any other damage...When you make a left turn after turning signal light on the light will turn itself off as you straighten up the vehicle after you turn...Thanks..

How to change the ignition lock cylinder on a 1985 s15 gmc jimmy


1st you will need two tools, you can get them from any auto parts store like NAPA. See picture at end of the GM steering lock ring depresser, a must have..
INSTRUCTIONS:
Remove steering wheel. Underneath is the turn signal switch. There is a ring around the steering shaft holding the steering wheel lock plate down. Push down on the lock plate and remove the ring and the lock plate. Next is the turn signal switch. 3 screws holding it down one on the right side above the key and 2 on the left. Probably have to move the turn signal switch left and right to get them. the arm is held on with one screw. Remove the hazard button, one screw in the end of it. There should be enough slack in the turn signal wires to get it over the steering shaft. On the top side at the bottom of the ignition switch there should be a screw. Remove screw and the ignition switch will just pull out. Reverse to install.

The left turn signal will not cancel automatically


The left turn cancel return spring has broken. It is part of the turn signal switch. In order to replace you will need to get a steering wheel puller kit, a couple of picks and a snap ring pliers. This will allow you to remove the steering wheel, airbag clock spring, the steering wheel lock plate. and the horn ring. After those are removed you will have access to the turn signal switch. You will see the two springs in the switch. One will definetely no look the the other. The springs can be purchased individually from you local GM dealer. Might as well replace both as long as everything is taken apart.

My ignition switch is jammed on my 1985 monte carlo any suggeestions


you will have to replace the lock cylinder in the steering column. This is a diy job, if you can borrow or rent 2 tools. One is a steering wheel puller, and the other is a lock plate depressor. Some part stores will loan/rent these tools. Once you have the tools proceed as follows: 1 remove steering wheel with steering wheel puller
2 install lock plate depressor and depress the lock plate to remove the retaining ring. 3 Remove the turn signal lever and hazard light button, then the three screws that hold the turn signal switch, pull up on the switch and push it out of the way. You may have to get under the dash and unplug the harness to the switch to get enough slack to clear the steering column. 4 remove the lock cylinder retaining bolt then slide the lock out. slide the new lock in replace the retaining bolt and reassemble the column.

How replace turn signal switch 2000 chevy blazer?


Since the 2000 chevy blazer is equipped with SRS (Saftey Restraint System), ie: Airbags, which is located in the steering wheel. In order to replace the turn signal switch you must remove the steering wheel. Therefore I would only highly advise you to take it to a dealer to have this done.

I have a 87 blazer s10... the turnswitch /wiper/highbeam switch is broken and is shorting out my brakelights ..i cant seem to get to it.. took the steering weel off but ..?


Unfortunately there are some special tools required you will need to get to the turn-signal switch. Below is the procedure for replacing the turn-signal switch. Generally you can rent the puller from a local auto parts jobber or you can purchase one.
Good luck, let me know how it goes.
Regards,

Many vehicles use a turn signal switch that is separate from the multifunction switch. The steering wheel will have to be removed to gain access to the turn signal switch on these vehicles. The following procedure is a common method of turn signal switch replacement:
  • Place the fender covers on the fenders.
  • Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  • Remove the steering column trim.
  • Remove the horn pad from the steering wheel.

  • Remove the steering wheel and horn collar.
  • Use a suitable puller to remove the steering wheel.
  • With a suitable compressor, compress the preload spring to the lock plate. Compress the spring only enough to remove the snap ring.

  • Use a pick and a small flat blade screwdriver to remove the snap ring.
  • Remove the lock plate, horn contact carrier, and spring.
  • Remove the bolts at the upper steering column support and the upper mounting bracket from the column.
  • Disconnect the turn signal wiring connector.
  • Wrap tape around the wire and connector.
  • Remove the hazard warning knob from the column.
  • Remove the switch retaining screws and remove the switch.
