Remove the covers below the steering column. Locate the wiring harness mounted to the steering column. Follow the wires toward the steering wheel. You should be able to locate the separate 3 same size wire harness for the cruise control. The wires from the switch handle run alongside, on the inside of the column with your turn signal wires.

SOURCE: Replace Turn signal switch

Fairly simple for average guy. Go or call a local parts store, and ask for a multifunction switch, your VIN number will help them to better ID the right one, cost maybe $80-100. They should be able to show you a diagram as to how it installs, usually just a couple of screws to remove plastic shouds to access the switch, which should have a plug going into it, plug and play.

Bummer deal! This may be a way to tell you some tail lights are burnt out. Some cruise controls have a fuse in a second location.

Back brake light stay on, replaced brake switch same problem.Truck has over drive and cruies control If you take switch out of circuit the brake lights stay on the same with the turn/hazard flasher.


Your brake lights and your turn signals go through the multifunction (turn signal) switch. It is common for these switches to short internally. Partial disassembly of the steering column is required to replace it. The airbag stsyem must be disabled, then the airbag removed from the steering wheel. Then the steering wheel must be removed to access the screw in the front of the switch assembly. The rest is pretty easy... a few screws holing the lower cover of the dash, the shroud around the steering column and a few connectors to deal with. (see pictures of switch assembly below)
There are two types of these switches available for 2000 S-10. With cruise control and without cruise control. The one WITHOUT cruise control is much more expensive!

How do you replace a turn signal lever on a 1990 chevy suburban 1/2 ton 4x4?


You will have to remove the steering wheel and then remove the ignition cylinder ( insert the key and turn it counterclockwise, then remove the retaining screw and pull it out). Then remove the steering wheel lock plate ( works best if you have the compressing tool, the spring behind the plate is pretty strong) then remove the under dash panel and unhook the turn signal harness. Then tie a piece of string or a piece of wire to the connector. pull the turn signal level straight out of the switch (towards the door) be careful if you have cruise control (there is a small wire connected to it) and just let it hang. then remove the mounting screws and the screw that hold the hazard button on. Pull the switch out and guide the wires up through the steering column. The wire or string will come up with the harness. Now tie the end of the string to the connector of the new switch and pull the string carefully and guide the harness back down and reverse the removal steps

1995 olds royale ls cruise not working


There is a gray colored wire on the back of the pivot pulse dimmer switch assembly that is most likely the culprit. Not the multi function turn signal/wiper/cruise lever, its the wires that go through the column down to the plug just under the dash at the column. You may be able to see these wires using a flashlight looking into the opening behind the turn signal lever pulling the lever like your dimming the lights may help to see this. The wire may be just hanging there. Very common failure due to the fact that these wires move every time you dim your headlamps. You will have to replace the "Pivot pulse dimmer switch assembly". in the steering column. This switch assembly is attached directly to the turn signal switch. Disabling the air bags and removing the steering wheel will be required. If you decide to do this yourself, I would strongly suggest getting a good service manual and following the procedure to the letter.

Good chance that the controller on your turn signal has gone bad since you started having cruise control issues when you used it to activate your turn signal. You can pick one up at Auto Zone and they will have the step by step instructions for you to replace the turn signal arm with the cruise control switch. it takes about 30 min to replace with common tools.
Thank you for using Fixya and good luck

My 1996 Buick Century has a cruise control issue


There are many components in the cruise system. That system does not work with vacuum. The first thing I would check is the multi-function switch (the turn signal, wiper, cruise switch arm). On the back side of the turn signal arm is a plug that plugs into the steering column. Make sure that it is seated, or plugged in firmly. If you have had any work done recently on the steering column like turn signal switch replacement. That plug my have been disconnected and not reconnected completely. These multi-function switches do go bad. They are easy to replace though but a new one will cost over $100. Also the wire harness in the steering column do sometimes break off. The next thing I would check is the control unit. The cruise control unit is on the drivers side of the engine compartment right by the strut tower and the brake master cylinder. It has a cable attached to it going to the throttle body. Find the wire-harness plug on the back side of it and make sure that it is seated firmly in place. Considering the age of the vehicle My first guess is the multi-function switch. I have had to replace mine twice in my '96 cutlass, but I have also had to replace the wire harness in the steering column as well. It could be the switch on the brake pedal, or the vehicle speed sensor. I hope this gets you started in the right direction.
