SOURCE: 1999 Buick Century headlights don't work properly

Iam an ASE Certified mechanic and i had the same problem with my 99 century and i wasnt able to drive at night. After hours of testing wires we came to the problem. Its the turn signal switch assembly which is tied into the hazard switch on top of the steering column. Its all one piece with a 3 foot long wiring harness attached to it running down the bottom of the steering column and going underneath the dash. The least expensive place i found the part and had it in stock was my local Auto Zone and still the part was $200.00.

P.S. This is a common problem on these GM cars. Mine did the same thing to the tee! The lights will go on and off then they just went off for good and this solved the problem. I guarantee it. If you have any questions please email me i will do all i can to help.

I had the same problem with my 95 Lesabre. The owners manual says to take the key out, and wait 3 minutes(until the light goes off). It should fire right up.

Lincoln ls front steering rack & pinion


You need a manual. This isn't a fun job to do, even on a lift. Also you need to be careful of the steering column. If it turns on you while the rack is out, you could break the clock spring in the steering wheel. When it breaks the air bag light comes on and a few hundred dollars later. you can get the light to go off.

Why does the air bag light come on


You need to have a repair facility check for codes in the BODY computer to verify, but I believe your CLOCK spring, located in the steering column beneath the steering wheel is bad. This clock spring allows continuity between the air bag and air bag system when the steering wheel is turned. You are experiencing momentary breaks in the circuit when the steering wheel is turning and the body computer is sensing this and is setting off the air bag light and the beeper alarm. A body code will verify this. It is not a major job to replace the clock spring and involves pulling the steering wheel off to access it.

Deployed air bags


My daughter has a "99 Saturn SC1, and she hit a curb and deployed hers. I (Many years as a mechanic) replaced both bags, the computer which is located under the center console, and the "clock spring" located behind the steering wheel to get it all working. (No air bag light on while driving) The steering wheel airbag melted the clock spring when it fired. I purchased these all used on E-Bay.

OBD11tech thinks I have a bad clock spring on my 1999 jeep cherokee classic due to my horn not working & the air bag light stays on. Where is the clock spring & how do I change it?


it's inside the steering wheel
must be careful, because of the air bag.
disconnect the battery and wait for 10 minutes for the air bag capacitor to discharge power.
remove the air bag module from the steering wheel
remove the center nut, then steering wheel
the clock pring is a yellow round piece that fitted inside the steering column. there is a snap ring hold the clock spring in place. disconnect the wiring then remove the clock spring.

Air bag light is on... The str wheel controls r never correct


You have a bad clock spring. This is located behind the steering wheel and all electrical functions from steering wheel must go thru it. Pretty common problem on this model. The steering wheel and the steering column trim would have to be removed to replace it.

Air bag light keeps coming on my 1999 jeep grand cherokee


Jeeps did have a problem with the clock spring in the steering column. This clock spring is a part that connects the lower harness with the switches on the steering wheel. To replace the clock spring it will have to be done by a qualified tech since the airbag itself has to be removed. Have the car checked for codes first before making any repairs.
