It is one of two things:
1. The turn indicator switch is bad if it is a combo switch that has the dimmer in it for the headlights
2. The clock spring in the steering column.

    Are either of these items a DIY repair for a standard guy?

  • Brad Brown Jan 06, 2013

    It depends on how your access to tools is. You have to pull the steering wheel. That takes a special tool and then you need a torque wrench to put it back on

    You do not need to pull the steering wheel to replace the turn signal arm. The cowl around the steering column comes off in 2 parts. There are three screws holding the turnsignal arm on. You need a torx bit ratchet because there is only about 1" of space between one screw and the steering wheel. You can order the part online. It's pretty easy to do. There are Youtube videos showing the repair.

2001 jeep grand cherokee when headlights on the right blinker blinks fast and right headlight is dim


Seems like an Earth problem for the RH lights.
Grab a Jumper lead. Attach one end to a good earth (engine or Neg. Battery post).
Other end to the RH metal mud guard.

Aztek high beams come on when right blinker is on


Your blinker arm control unit is bad have it replaced it will cure your problem. What it is doing when you turn on your blinker the unit has a short in it and causing the high beams to come on. As they all work of off the same controler.

Replaced the headlights and it seems as though the high beams are not working right. They are on but not right, when you turn on the bright lights should both the low and high beam bulls be on?


Depends on model, most of GM products now have seperate beams for low and high, and some high beams require a different headlight for proper brightness.

My light problem is i have low beam on right side no low on left side i turn highs on and right side goes out and high on left turns on then when back to lows beams and i pull turn signal to flash high...


If you have separate bulbs for the low and high beams(4 light system), if you pull the turn signal and hold it, all 4 lights will stay on until you release the turn signal. You need to replace the bright bulb on the right side and the low bulb on the left side. If your headlights only have one bulb on each side, then you will have to replace both of them to get everything to work.

2000 impala-low beams don't work but high does


sounds like the problem is the dimmer switch, get a price on the dimmer switch. If you have to, get one at a junk yard . It's cheaper.
