    You did not ask how. It just read { Right signal only works if lever is jiggled.} You will need to remove air bag with a tamper proof torx bit. Remove nut from steering wheel and use a steering wheel puller to remove. Now the lock plate has to be removed with a special tool that presses it down to remove and re-install retaining clip. Once that is removed you will see the switch. Further dis-assembly of the steering column will be necessary to pull the wires through it. Go to the library and see if they have a chilton auto manual on this car. The air bag coil is on top of the lock plate and it could go off if not removed and installed correctly.

What causes my right turn signal to not work? Front or back!

Your worst fears are my guess. The multifunction switch has a problem and needs attention. Might not be the switch assembly, could be just a wire or the body control module. It sounds like you can easily reproduce the symptom, so a competent tech should be able to narrow down the cause quickly. A decent mechanic could fix it in an hour or two. 25316080-dz1fkxf1fwolart5ai0divhk-5-0.jpg

Replace the signal flasher for 2002 buick le sable

Looks like the same problem I had on my 2004 Lumina. If the brake lights all work but not the left AND right signals both do not work it is most likely the flasher which is under the driver side of the dash. If you barely move the turn signal lever and the right or left turn on briefly then it is the switch OEM part number 26093875 verify the numbers to match your vehicle. The switch is located in the steering column and can be changed out in about 30 min. Be careful on keeping track of how you take it apart and put it back together.

Buick century 98 custom My girlfriends turn signals stopped working, they stopped flashing, then the hazard lights went out. Her mechanic said it is the daytime running module. Where can I price this out,...

intermidiate switch's are faulty in most LeSabres, it controls all your settings where as your day time running light modual only puts low voltage to your headlights, thats all. i had similar issues in my camaro, replaced the switch and all is better now.

95' Buick regal, 3rd brake light works, tail lights work, turn signals work, stoplight switch seems to work ie 3rd brake light working, fuse is ok, changed bulbs, but no rear brake lights.

If the third brake light works and the regular ones don't, it is most likely a bad turn signal (multifunction) switch. The switch is able to kill the brakes lights to run the turn signals, and in rare circumstances does this. I've seen it several times. It could also be wiring, especially near the turn signal switch, but it is usually the switch.

Signal Light doesn't work when lever is in the fixed position

sound's like you need a new signal switch, replacing it requires removing the steering wheel and airbag if equipped.

Right tail light and front right signal wont work unless signal or brake applied

Since this is happening only to one side of the vehicle and not the other than i would say you have an electrical fault in the switch and or a hot wire is broken not allowing your lights on that side to come on when told to do so.
