How do you replace multifunction switch in a 1997 ford thunderbird?


Hey Dana,

First off be sure to take off the negative battery cable then the positive. Wait a couple of mins. so your airbags don't deploy. Remove the steering column cover and then the two retaining bolts. Pull the switch out, unplug the connector and withdraw the switch assembly from the steering column. With new switch plug in the electrical connector, place the switch in position and install the screws. Tighten the bolts securely and put the steering column cover back on. Put the battery cables back on.

Head light low beam went out in both head lights


If they went out one at a time, then you most likely need 2 headlights. If they wen out together, then you most likely need a multifunction switch in the steering column because your headlight dimmer switch inside that multifunction switch has burned out.
Good luck

That sounds like the multifunction switch is the fault. The flasher on this vehicle is part of the hazzard switch. It recieves power for turn flashing from the turn signal switch. It is very common for the turnsignal (multifunction) switch to become worn and supply partial power to the flasher (hazzard switch) when not on which results in this fast clicking without any lights on. To be certian without taking out any tools whatsoever the next time the clicking happens jiggle the turn signal switch and see if it goes away or changes at all. If it does you need the turn signal switch. I'm going to include replacement instructions for that below because I am confident that is what you will need. Please ask if you have any further questions.



Caution: Unless directed otherwise, the ignition and start switch must be in the OFF or LOCK position, and all electrical loads must be OFF before servicing any electrical component. Disconnect the negative battery cable to prevent an electrical spark should a tool or equipment come in contact with an exposed electrical terminal. Failure to follow these precautions may result in personal injury and/or damage to the vehicle or its components.
Disconnect the negative battery cable.
Disable the supplemental inflatable restraints (SIR).

How do I change the Flasher on a 2000 Mercury Mystique and where can I buy one?


The turn signal flasher for a 2000 Mercury Mystique is located at the top of the steering column on the back of the multifunction switch. It plugs into terminals 31, 49 and 49A shown in the picture below.

You can get to it by removing the screws and taking the steering column shroud off.

The place to buy one would be at an auto parts store. (Just pick one...they should all have it.)

Where do I find the multifunction switch?


It is the switch on your steering column that runs the turn signals hazers high and low beams and wipers. The big lever that you use to turn your turn signals on is part of the switch and is replaced when you replace the multifunction switch. It is the whole thing.

How do I replace the signal switch assembly on my 2004 Chevy Cavalier?


Before servicing any electrical component, the ignition key must be in the OFF or LOCK position and all electrical loads must be OFF , unless instructed otherwise in these procedures. If a tool or equipment could easily come in contact with a live exposed electrical terminal, also disconnect the negative battery cable. Failure to follow these precautions may cause personal injury and/or damage to the vehicle or its components.
  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove the steering column trim covers.
  3. Remove the retaining screws from the multifunction switch.

To install:
  1. Connect the electrical connectors to the multifunction switch.
  2. Install the multifunction switch to the steering column while depressing the spring loaded horn pin.
    NOTE Use the correct fastener in the correct location. Replacement fasteners must be the correct part number for that application. Fasteners requiring replacement or fasteners requiring the use of thread locking compound or sealant are identified in the service procedure. Do not use paints, lubricants, or corrosion inhibitors on fasteners or fastener joint surfaces unless specified. These coatings affect fastener torque and joint clamping force and may damage the fastener. Use the correct tightening sequence and specifications when installing fasteners in order to avoid damage to parts and systems.

    Electrical System Problems in '02 F250 Diesel


    Does the truck have daytime driving lights ? Sounds like a short , maybe the switch inside the steering column . Turn signal , wiper , headlamp dimmer ,or multifuction switch . Without testing this is just a guess . Find a wiring diagram at http://www.bbbind.com/free_tsb.html there free , get yourself a DVOM - digital volt ohm meter an test the B+ volt into an out of the switch . moving dimmer from low to high an turning on the turn signals etc.... Suggest you watch a few videos on youtube for automotive electrical testing , how to use a wiring diagram etc.... disconnect circuits at the mutifunction switch .

    Measure the resistance between multifunction switch C202a pin 44, circuit 44 (LB), harness side, and electronic flasher connector pin 1, circuit 44 (LB), harness side; and between multifunction switch C202a pin 44, circuit 44 (LB), harness side, and ground.
    • Is the resistance less than 5 ohms between the multifunction switch and the electronic flasher, and greater than 10,000 ohms between the multifunction switch and ground?

    Carry out the multifunction switch component test; Refer to Wiring Diagrams Cell 149 for schematic and connector information.
    .

    • Is the multifunction switch OK?
    Yes INSTALL a new electronic flasher. TEST the system for normal operation.

    No INSTALL a new multifunction switch; REFER to Section 211-05 . TEST the system for normal operation.
    Testing the electrical circuits of all the system not functioning properly is how you go about finding the problem .
