Weird stuff like thi is almost always a bad ground. I would check the ground for the wiper motor first, then headlamps. last check grounds for tail lmaps. good luck

    the slightly on turn signal says that whatever circuit has a bad ground, it is finding ground through your turn signal circuit.

Hello Mike, I suspect you have a bad multi-function switch that operates your headlights, tail lights, turn signals, wipers and washers.

Wipers work when i turn left


You have two options here.

1. Replace the Combination Switch as your Wiper/Washer, Turn Signal, Emergency Flasher and High/Low Head Lights are all in the same switch.

2. Fix the broken wire inside of the switch.

Here are the steps you need:

1. Tilt the stearing wheel up and remove the lower dash panel. (Three 8mm Hex screws)

2. Remove the steel anti-theft place behind the lower dash panel (Five 5/16 Hex screws)

3. Remove the lower stearing column panel (four phillips screws) There is one on the left, three on the right. You will have to look all the way back on the right rear to get this one as it is slightly hidden behind the dash frame.

4. Lift slightly on the upper stearing column panel and remove the two #10 Torx scress that secure the combination switch and disconnect the electrical plugs.

5. Assemble in reverse.

Now, if your problem is related to the delay circuitry of the Wipers, you can remove the 5 Torx screws in the combination switch which will allow you to seperate the two halves. When you do, there will be on plastic contact slide that will come out of the top and you will have to fish this back in when reassembling but it is quite easy.

There will be a three wire plug that also connects to from the top housing and feeds into your turn signal lever. Slide a small screw driver into the lock mechanism and pull free.

These three wires (Red, Blue and Yellow) are what control your wipers and wiper delay. If one of them is broken, you can resolder to fix the problem.

If the wires are not broken, then you likely will have to buy a switch as you cannot get inside of the sealed handle. However, you can use an ohm meter to test the function of the switch.

Total time to remove and replace the switch is about 30 minutes. To disassemble the switch, replair and reinstall is about 1 hour depending on your abilities.

I have a 2001 potiac grand prix with no tail lights the same bulb work turn signal an brake lights they r fine ive checked all fuses and replaced all bulbs even replaced the light switch still no tail


no, they are not the same. The multifunction switch is on the steering column and controls wipers, turn signals, and hi/low beam headlights. Dash switch is on the dash and generally turns lights on and off and frequently also controls brightness of dash lights. I had a Camry that had the same thing happening...ended up having a toggle switch put in to control the tail lights...fixed the issue.

1996 PLYMOUTH VOYAGER, TURN SIGNAL LIGHTS DON'T WORK FUSES ARE OK, WAT'S WRONG


Hello. If the turn signals don't work left or right the flasher has gone bad. It is easy to replace as it just plugs in under the dash. Go to any auto parts store and buy a new flasher and ask the clerk to assist you in plugging it in. J.

My headlights wont turn on just wondering where the fuses for the headlights are. if it isn't the fuses, what else could be wrong?


sure check the fuses first either in the glove box under the dash on the side of the dash or under the hood labeled "fuse"as well most everything these days runs the lights and wipers through the turn-signal wiper arm but check these areas first then see if any change was discovered .....let me know otherwise we will dig a bit deeper into other possible issues

My dash lights all go out when i try and put the turn signal on. which arnt working either. car runs fine otherwise.


Your turn signal switch is multifunctioning (controls cuise, wipers, dimmer, etc.). Your dash lights are wired into the same circuit (when you turn your headlights on, the dash lights should come on). Try replacing the turn signal switch there at your steering column. Takes about 20 minutes to install and around $60.

Driver's headlight is dim; wipers only work if headlight is off


Sounds like the jolt from the barrier has caused a bad ground to occur. Look for a bad ground wire around the left headlamp in or around the headlight bucket.
Tighten or replace the bad ground wire. A poor contact will cause the headlight to light dimly.
