I would look at the wiring around the bellhousing first to be sure you have not pinched any wires. On that truck, behind the glove box is the PCM, and another white colored box called a DRAC. The DRAC controls the speedometer not the PCM. Look into replacing it. Also check your trans and gauge fuses. Good Luck.

SOURCE: remove the break light switch from 94 Blazer K1500

Those things can be a PITA. It's going to be hard to write it out but;
It is like a double J hook. There are two differant things that need to happen for it to come off. It needs to release the first tab that you can feel, the one that covers the end of the rod. Push it down and pry it out a little then push the whole thing in the opposite direction. I hope some of that made since. What might be easier is to go and buy a new one so you can see how it works, I would highly recommend replacing the old one, I ALWAYS do, its cheap.

    1. Remove the wire harness straps from the wire harness assembly and detach the wiring harness connectors from the switch side connectors.
    2. Remove the two multifunction turn signal switch screws and remove the multifunction switch assembly from the vehicle.
    To install:
    1. Install the multifunction switch to the steering column. Use a small flat-blade prytool to compress the electrical contact and move the multifunction turn signal switch into position. Verify that the electrical contact rests on the canceling cam. Install the screws and tighten to 62 inch lbs. (7 Nm).
    2. Route the wire harness along the steering column jacket assembly and secure into the wire harness strap. Install a new wire tie to the upper tilt head assembly and another lower along the wiring harness, as the original installation.
    3. Verify that the lever is in the center of the OFF position.
    4. Install the upper and lower steering column shrouds.
    5. Route the SIR connector through the steering wheel, align the scribe mark on the steering wheel made at removal, with the slash mark on the steering shaft and install the steering wheel. Install the steering shaft nut and torque to 30 ft. lbs. (41 Nm).
    6. Install the horn contact leads and the air bag connector to the back of the air bag. Make sure the CPA wedge is in place to secure the connector. Install the air bag by gently pushing on both the right and left sides of the air bag until the retaining springs engage.

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.

    CAUTION Be sure that the electrical contact of the turn signal and multifunction switch assembly (2) rests on the turn signal cancel cam assembly.

    CAUTION The abrasion sleeve must be installed back onto the steering column wire harness assembly. The ignition lock cylinder case wires and connector must be hanging out of the middle of the abrasion sleeve.

    CAUTION When performing service on or near the SIR components or the SIR wiring, the SIR system must be disabled. Refer to SIR Disabling and Enabling . Failure to observe the correct procedure could cause deployment of the SIR components, personal injury, or unnecessary SIR system repairs.

    Cruise control works intermittently

    The problem most likely is with the cruise control computer (ECU) and the fix is to replace it with an older version. I had the same problem and tried replacing other parts and even replacing the ECU with a rebuilt one of the same vintage as the 1993 model. I had the ECU replaced with the previous version at a Saab specialist and it now works all the time. There is a difference in the connections between the different year ECUs that requires some rewiring - you can find rewiring information on the internet.

    It could be a switch failure. The later Audis (including my 99 A4) are known for this, in the cars where the cruise is part of the turn signal stalk. 99% of the time the fix is replacement of the stalk.
