Question about Cars & Trucks
Took it to electrician. he wanted $400 to replace harness. used sterring column is 150.00(don't want to do that)
No idea what your saying
What is wrong with the wiring,
that can not be repaired?
No-- you do not want a different steering column,
that would make no sense, to me
I guess the $400 is for mostly labor, to repair the wiring?
Your asking about quick & cheap, when you haven't said
what the problem is in detail
You want the car properly fixed -- correct?
So why cheap & quick,that doesn't apply with your car

no, u shouldn't have to pull the steering wheel. pull the cover off the column, there are 2 or 4 nuts that hold the column up to the dash, remove them and let the column lay on the seat- u should disconnect your battery before doing so. you can get to the shift tube from there- most likely u'll find that the bushings have gone bad and need replacement.

Replace the wiper motor often time there is a dead spot on the commutator. If you want to be sure unplug the motor and use a jumper wire with 12 volts to the appropriate terminal to energize the motor, you may need to ground one of the teminals to get it to work, if the motor runs with out interuption then yes it is most likely the wiper switch bad ground or a break in the harness somewhere, check and repair the easiest first ground wire motor jump wire check etc. then the switch.
