SOURCE: have 1999 buick lesabre limited turn signals do

if turn signal does not work, check the bulbs and the flasher. The flasher should be located under the dash near the steering column, but it's not necessary to take the steering wheel off unless the turn signal switch itself is bad.

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.

Turn signals stopped working on my car


sounds like you have a faulty turn signal switch. in your car the same lever can control lots of things, turn signals, bright headlights, flash to pass, not sure that's all, maybe the wipers too. so gm calls that thing a multifunction switch. can you change it yourself? maybe. will it be easy? depends on what else you have done. you have to take the steering wheel apart to get to it. i think your car is new enough to have airbags, so you have to deal with that. if you are still interested in doing it yourself i can give you a play by play, just trying to let you know you do run the risk of deploying the airbag so you need to decide if you think it's worth it.

How do I remove the ignition switch on a 1999 chevy suburban?


Ok, start by disconnecting you negative battery cable. From there, wait at least 1 minute to disable your airbag system. You will have to remove the airbag from the steering wheel, it's retained by a couple bolts on the back of the steering wheel. Once you get the airbag out, disconnect the wires to it, and set it aside. Remove the clip that is above the lock nut for the steering wheel, then remove the lock nut. You need a steering wheel puller to pull the steering wheel off. After you remove the steering wheel, you should have access to the turn signal switch.

Need to check turn signal contacts in column,


Best thing to do, honestly, is to purchase a chilton's or haynes manual when you are working around the air bags. Better safe than sorry.

What you need to do is this:

Remove Steering wheel
Remove big connector under dash, it has a 8mm bolt that is holding it in, this will loosen up the wires in the steering column
Pull out clock spring and let it hang
Get lock plate compressor and remove lock plate, the snap ring is kinda hard to get off
Remove plates and spring behind lock plate
Put turn signal switch to the turn right position
remove three screws holding in turn signal cam
remove key warning buzzer, needle nose pliers and it just pulls out, be gentle
remove screw with a torx head that holds the ignition tumbler in place
