Don't remove the lock cylinder! just break out the small plastic insert inside the upper panel where it slides over the lock cylinder and once its together you will be happy with the ease of installation and the ignition where the key goes in covers up the whole where that little bit of plastic once was

turn your steering wheel around to where the cruise control buttons are straight up and tilt wheel down makes it easier. Very carefully with a thin screwdriver pry it off (the clips break real easy so be gentle) once it comes off you will see the plug in. Unplug it.

Hi, the likely problem is a failed switch. Remove the switch according to instructions below and then start the truck again. If the wipers stay off, replace the switch. If they still come on, please get back to me.


REMOVAL & INSTALLATION See Figures 1 and 2

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable. Remove the steering wheel.
  2. On vehicles equipped with tilt wheel, remove the tilt lever.
  3. On vehicles equipped with tilt wheel, remove the steering column collar by pressing on the collar from the top and bottom while removing the collar.

Fig. Fig. 1: To remove the tilt column control lever, simply rotate it counterclockwise until removed

  1. Remove the instrument panel trim cover retaining screws. Remove the trim cover.
  2. Remove the 2 screws (#3 in Fig 2) from the bottom of the steering column shroud. Remove the bottom half of the shroud by pulling the shroud down and toward the rear of the vehicle.
  3. If the vehicle is equipped with automatic transmission, move the shift lever as required to aid in removal of the shroud. Lift the top half of the shroud from the column.
  4. On 1991 automatic transmission equipped models, disconnect the selector indicator actuation cable by removing the screw from the column casting and the plastic plug at the end of the cable.
  5. Remove the 2 self tapping screws (#3 in Fig 2) that retain the combination switch to the steering column casting. Disengage the switch from the casting.
  6. Disconnect the 3 electrical connectors, using caution not to damage the locking tabs. Be sure not to damage the PRNDL cable.
  7. Installation is the reverse of the removal procedure. Torque the combination switch retaining screws to 18-27 inch lbs. (2-3 Nm).

Indicater or flasher problem on jeep cherokee 2003


If your having problems with your indicater or flashers on your vehicle then their are a couple of things that would be causing you problems.Now if when you press left or right turn the light flashes fast when turning one way but not the other then this indicates you have a blown bulb on the side that is causing it to flash faster so you need to press it to that side and have a look at the front and back bulbs and change the one thats not working.

If on the other hand your flasher/indicater works sometimes and not others then this is usually down to the flasher relay located in fuse box (see pictures below)
To find out if it is the relay and not the flasher control that you press to turn the indicator lights on is to try using the hazard warning light button press this and if this works every time then the chances are its the control and not the relay (see pictures below) but if it sometimes works and sometimes dont or if it dont work at all then this points towards the relay so changing this should then solve your problem

  1. Disconnect and isolate the battery negative lead.

2001 jeep grand cherokee laredo, lights come one intermittently, horn came on unexpectedly and wouldn't turn off. How do I fix that?


Lights intermittent can be caused by switch or relay. Try swapping the Low Beam relay with another similar relay (horn relay is a good choice) to see if that resolves it. These relays are in the Junction Block--may be under the hood or in the car but not in the big box by the battery). If this doesn't fix it, the problem is likely the headlamp switch.

Horn coming on is usually caused by a broken switch or stripped wire insulation inside the steering column. You would usually have to take the steering wheel off to fix it, and this requires special tools; however, if the problem happens to be under the steering column shroud, you may be able to fix it without taking off the steering wheel. Take the shroud off and see if you can follow the black/red horn wire. Follow it as far as you can to check for stripped insulation contact with any metal. If you lights switch is bad, you can also change that while you have the shroud off.

Please let me know if you have questions.

Low beam lights will not stay on. They come on randomly when moving the tilt steering wheel up and down. High beams stay on ok. Is this a relay problem and can I replace it myself?


sounds like the hi-lo switch to me. I think yours is built into the multi-function wand. A new one is $200, and that's if you don't have cruise control... If you want to try replacing the headlight relay first, that's a lot cheaper, but I don't think it's the problem. Maybe you can swap it with a similar relay just to check and not have to buy one. The relays are in the relay box by the battery.

here are the instructions from autozone.com to replace the switch:
Steering Column-Mounted Switches
The steering column-mounted dimmer switch can be operated by an actuator control rod from the lever to a remotely mounted switch. Another style incorporates the dimmer switch into the multifunction switch.
If the dimmer switch is part of the multifunction switch:
•You'll need these tools to remove the switch: fender covers, battery terminal pliers, terminal puller assorted combination wrenches, torx drivers, and ohmmeter.
•Place the fender covers around the battery work area. Loosen the negative battery clamp bolt are remove the clamp using terminal pullers.
•Place the battery cable where it cannot contact the battery.
•Remove the shroud retaining screws and remove the lower shroud from the column.
•Loosen the steering column attaching nuts. Do not remove the nuts.
•Lower the steering column enough to remove the upper shroud.
•Remove the turn signal lever by slightly rotating the outer end of the lever then pulling straight on the lever.
•Peel back on the foam shield from the turn signal switch then disconnect the turn signal switch electrical connections.
•Remove the screws attaching the turn signal switch to the lock cylinder assembly and disengage the switch from the lock assembly.
•To reinstall the multiswitch, reverse the procedure.
•Torque the steering column attaching nuts to the amount specified in the service manual.63f909b.gif

No power to rear turn signals


That sounds like a problem with the turn signal switch or multi-function switch, and if the vehicle also has a tilt steering wheel that the tilt is used often, then check the wires at the connectors to the turn-signal/multi-function switch because they have a tendency to break off there.

Replacing ignition switch on 1976 Dodge D-300. Got the steering wheel off and taken out the circlip holding in the bearing. I''ve loosened the three screws that hold the turn signal housing, but can''t...


Here is what MOTOR says to do. If you have Tilt and/or Telescopic steering wheel the column needs to come off the dash and the mounting bracket removed so the cover on the wire harness can be removed. It is mounted with screws. On the others the wire cover is held on with clips and need to come off. The shift lever has to be full clockwise on all models except Tilt. On Tilt wheels position the gear shift at the midway point. Unplug the wire harness and remove the screw for the turn signal lever and then the lever. If you have cruise, let it hang. Remove the hazard warning switch and upper bearing retainer mounting screws. Pull the switch from the column carefully, guiding the wires through the column opening. Installation is the reverse.Hope this helps.
