Question about 1998 Chevrolet Lumina

How do i change the turn signal switch on a 98 Chevy Lumina

I've concluded that the problem must lie in the turn signal switch. The cyclops light works, but neither of the two taillights.  The turn signals work.  I have found that the brakes will work some of the time.  I'd be happy to replace the turn signal, but if there is a quick fix or something I can do to keep it working for a little while as I am looking to purchase a different car with in the next 2 months.

It is the turn signal switch all together. I have owned that same care for about 5 years now and every two years it goes bad. It is just a glitch in them. Cost is around 80 for the part plus labor.

Just bought second hand 98 chevy lumina and someone stopped me saying I have no brake lights, so I checked and I only see a place for backup lights and turn signal lights. Why do I not have any break...


The brake light in the rear window and the main brake lights are on a different circuit. After the signal leaves the activating switch on the brake pedal arm, it splits. One circuit goes straight to the high mount brake light, the other goes into the turn signal switch. If the rear turn signals work but the brake lights don't, suspect the turn signal switch, not the bulbs and wires. Better to check this before removing and checking bulbs, wires and fuses. It is a common problem with the W-body cars like Lumina, Monte Carlo, Buick Regal, Olds Cutlass and Pontiac Grand Prix. (Approx 94-99 models). Part number is GM 190005031 (w/o radio accessory control) or 19005032 (with radio controls)

Brake lights dont work, the one in the back window does, maybe a ground wire is off? 98 chevy lumina


Make sure both of the bulbs are good first. But the common problem with these body style lumina is the turn signal switch goes open and does not allow power for the lower break lights to work. The 3rd break light does not get power through the turn signal switch. You can by pass the switch and jump the two wires together and make sure they work before replacing the turn switch. There is a big bulk head connector at the bottom of the steering colume. There are lots of wires in there but you are looking for a white wire and an organ wire that are beside each other. I don't have a schmatic at home to give you the pin locations. But they will be on one of the outside connectors. There are 3 sets of wires coming together into this bulk head.
Hope some of that make since?

1998 chevy lumina brake lights intermittent.


This is a classic example of turn signal switch failure. On GM vehicles with a multi-function turn signal switch and combination stop/turn/tail lights (all rear lights are behind red colored lenses except for back-up lights) The brake light power is routed through the turn signal switch. This makes it possible for the right rear light to function as a stop light while the left rear turn signal flashes, and vice-versa. When the contacts fail to remain constant the brake lights, and turn signals can become intermittent. The proof that the brake light switch is functioning correctly is that the high center (cyclops) brake light functions properly. Wiring integrity is verified if you can prove that turn signals operate, but that can still be intermittent with this complaint, BUT if you use your hazard switch to turn on all the signals at once, you can verify wiring integrity. This is because the turn signal, and the brake light use the same circuit, and bulb filament in the rear lighting assembly. If any Hazard lights fail to function, check bulbs first, then retest. If all Hazrd light flash correctly and reliably, bulbs, sockets, and wiring have proven integrity, and the turn signal switch is the remaining component in the system which needs to be tested. Unfortunately, this switch requires disassembly of the steering column for service, testing or replacement. If you have never disassembled, and successfully reassembled a GM tilt steering column, I would reccommend professional assistance.
