SOURCE: 1988 bronco ignition actuator broke. Pulled

Here is an amazing photo manual of the steering column tear-down to fix actuator on an 85 Bronco. It looks like a big job, though, which is unfortunate because the actuator on my 89 just snapped last week.

SOURCE: replace turn signal switch 1998 chevy lumina

You may look or feel the back side of the steering wheel, looking for 2 screws that hold the airbag to the wheel, these will be internal torq type screws (star) you may have to rotate the steering wheel 90 degrees to access the screws. You should first disable the airbag, by removing the airbag fuse, and or by disconnecting a yellow connector located near the base of the steering column. under the knee bolster.(panel below column). Once the retaining screws are removed, lift bag and disconnect the 2 connector to the airbag, the ground for the horn, and the horn contact wire, which requires you to push down and twist counter clockwise, damage to the horn contact ring will occur if you try and just pull connector from the ring. Now you can remove the steering wheel, may require a puller, and the you will have access to the turn signal switch.

SOURCE: Replace turn signal arm on 2000 vw new beetle

You have to remove the airbag in the steering wheel. Unplug the battery. Place the steering wheel in the outer most lower position. Turn the wheel and in a certain position in the back using a mirrior you'll see holes. With a small screw driver you can unclip the airbag. Turn the wheel the other way to access the other clip. There are 2. Once removed unclip; the harness connector (yellow from the airbag and place it so the vw symbol of the airbag is facing upwards so if it does go off it won't fly upwards. **You should use an antistatic ground on yourself not to deploy the airbag. then use a 12mm triple square drive socket to remove the steering wheel. note the position as it can be placed in several positions. Behind the wheel is the steering angle sensor/ clockspring. DO NOT TURN the clockspring and make sure it stays in it's position when reinstalled or it will break. From there you can remove the trim on the column and access the switches. When reinstalling the airbag VW states to reinstall everything final, close all windows, put the key ON position get out of the car close the door, and only then put the battery back. This is because if the airbag does go off for any reason you will not be in the car when you put the key on. If it does go off the key will already be on and you will be safe. This is the procedure from VW and they state that if damge to other components are affected by key on and battery connected it is still safer than getting an airbag in your face. Just precautionnary. Note the airbag clips are hard to access to remove it. You have to place the flat end of the screw driver on the upper part of the clip and kin of press it downwards. Let me know, but if you are not comfortable or not experienced in airbags do not attempt this yourself.!!!

2007 chevy malibu turn signal arm needs to be adjusted.


Probably a flaw with the original design. That's why it didn't last very long. Get the mounting bracket and order the switch online.

Rear brake lights and turning signals not working. One tail light has been out for very long time, but brake lights and signals just stopped working few weeks ago.


I'm checking into that same problem for a early 90's buick ( it's a GM also ) , I've checked the obvious ( bulbs, flasher,fuses,etc) all where fine. I assume your front turn signals work if you manually operate the turn signal switch or put on the hazard switch? The Buick's rear lights won't come on even with the hazard switch on. When you say one tail light has been out for some time, do you mean the brake/signal light or park/running lights? The Buick was like that with one side out for a while ( brake/signal light) but both the rear park/running lights work. Now, I've narrowed the problem down to the turn signal switch. I'd bet money on it. I just have to dig out my steering wheel puller, bite the bullet and get 'er done. You should be carefull if you're attempting that repair yourself ( AIRBAG ), use a manual. ( You could do a quick test by trying the turn signal while you pull the bottom of the arm toward you,move some of the wiring in the column near the arm,etc. I did and the signals started working. Could be the switch,dirt or a broken/loose wire. there's a lot of wiring going through the column and a lot of movement ( turn signal,high beam,cruise, then add tilt) Hope this helped.

How replace turn signal switch 2000 chevy blazer?


Since the 2000 chevy blazer is equipped with SRS (Saftey Restraint System), ie: Airbags, which is located in the steering wheel. In order to replace the turn signal switch you must remove the steering wheel. Therefore I would only highly advise you to take it to a dealer to have this done.

I have a 2000 Chevy Blazer. My turn signals click


Does it do it on both sides?If it is just on one side,a bulb could be the problem.When it does this,check the bulbs,by turning the signal on,and look at the front ,and the back,to see if one bulb is not burning.Replace it .One other problem ,check to see if the turn signal fuse is not blown,but melted in the fuse block.The battery voltage needs to be checked also.Check the charging system.it should be at about13.58 to 14.25.If the charging system is not at least 13.50 at idle,chatge battery at slow charge at 2 amps for 24 hours.If the voltage does not come up above 13.501 at idle,have the alternator replaced.The flashers,and the turn signals require a lot of amps.
