Re: turn signal not working on my '96 Lumina sedan
You have to have special tools to do this job. A steering wheel puller, a tool to press the steering wheel lock plate which has a snapring on it. It has to be pressed to get the snapring off. after you get that off, you can see the complete turn signal switch.

Try looking up under the dash just above the brake pedal. If you still can't find it turn on the 4 ways because turn signal and 4 ways use the same flasher on that model. You should be able to hear it clicking. Good luck.
I just did that last week. Remove horn, remove steering wheel, remove blinker switches, remove tilt spring, remove tilt mechanism, remove key buzzer switch (mine was white with 2 small wires leading to it). Screw holding ignition cylinder in should now be visible. P S Let me know if you have any trouble removing all the items listed above and I will try to help.
do you hazard warning lights work? firstly id check the fuses, check to see if the indicator fuse has blown, if not that then when you put the indicator on does it make the ticking sound it should? if not then your problem will be the flasher unit, the flasher unit is either a three or four pin relay located usually near your fuse box. if the flasher unit is ticking then it should be working correctly. if the worst comes to the worst then it would be a faulty stalk, but hopefully not.
Should just plug in (2 prongs) Not sure if you have Lumina van (on firewall just left of steering column under instrument panel) or sedan/coupe (driver side under dash, on passenger side of steering column)
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
i beleve the flasher on this cars, i suppesed to have a ground cable
most of times it is brown color, try to locate the flasher and make sure you have the ground and also the ignition switch power going to the turn signals flasher
