Question about 1998 Chevrolet Lumina

1 Answer

I need to change the turn signal switch in my 1999 Chev Lumina. I have the steering wheel puller, but I have read that I need a tool for something after I take the wheel off. Is there any way to do it without renting special tools?

How do I replace the ignition switch. Key in place, will not turn back to the off positiom, stuck in run. 1993 Chev Silvarado


It is held in with a bolt. You need to remove the steering wheel, lock plate, and turn signal switch to gain access. You will need special puller for the steering wheel and a special tool for removing the lock plate.

I am trying to pull the steering wheel column off to change the key cylinder for a new key in a 1999 Pontiac Bonneville, but I am having some trouble. I have taken the air bag off and the steering wheel...


You need the proper tool. A steering wheel puller will remove it with ease. It has a center shaft to push on the column and bolts to the wheel itself. When you turn the center shaft it pulls the wheel right off. Try to remove a steering wheel without a puller can damage the column.

No brake lights or turn signals on 1999 Chevy Lumina


This is a common problem. If your 3rd brake lite works, then the problem is the turn signal switch. This componet is in the steering column. THere are a couple of variations depending on whether or not you have radio controls on the steering wheel. Either way, its a pretty detailed job requiring a pretty high level of experience and tools available. You will have to pull the steering wheel and airbag make the repair and put it all back together. If the 3rd brake lite doesn't work either, then it could be a whole different senerio.

Replace turn signal switch 1998 chevy lumina


You may look or feel the back side of the steering wheel, looking for 2 screws that hold the airbag to the wheel, these will be internal torq type screws (star) you may have to rotate the steering wheel 90 degrees to access the screws. You should first disable the airbag, by removing the airbag fuse, and or by disconnecting a yellow connector located near the base of the steering column. under the knee bolster.(panel below column). Once the retaining screws are removed, lift bag and disconnect the 2 connector to the airbag, the ground for the horn, and the horn contact wire, which requires you to push down and twist counter clockwise, damage to the horn contact ring will occur if you try and just pull connector from the ring. Now you can remove the steering wheel, may require a puller, and the you will have access to the turn signal switch.

Changing turn signal switch 1986 lincoln town car.


Get a manual like chiltons or haynes to guide you through this one...Air bag needs to be disabled and yes, wheel needs to be removed.You will need a wheel puller and a tool to remove the steering lock plate. The arm either unscrews from or is screwed to the switch...either way, it's removable.

How to remove the key and lock ingnition on a 1999 chevy cavilier


Detach the negative battery terminal and disable the airbag system if you have it. Remove the steering wheel. To do that remove the clip and the large nut and then use a steering wheel puller. (You will need to buy or rent a steering wheel puller They can be found at most auto parts stores) Remove the turn signal switch assembly. Place the lock cylinder in the run position. Remove the turn signal switch housing screws. If you have tilt steering column you will need to remove the pivit pins on the sides of the tilt housing. (you will need a pivit pin puller which can be found at an auto parts store). Pull the buzzer switch out (make sure you note how this is correctly replaced. If done wrong the buzzer will stay on....it is a little plastic piece with two wires). Turn the lock cylinder to Accessory. Remove the lock cylinder screw which is by the buzzer switch you just removed. Remove the lock cylinder.
