Question about 2002 Pontiac Grand Am
The truth is you have three options to fixing your multifunctional switch, you can either replace for a brand new one wich will run you about $250 or you can find one at a salvage yard wich will cost you $50 Well what if it doesn't work? Most salvage yards have a seven day return policy so its really not a big deal just get a different one, you can also usually go out to the yard and pick out wich one out of wich vehicle, sometimes they have the keys to the vehicles as well so you can turn the car on to see how many miles are on it to determine how used the switch might be. or you can also clean it wich costs almost nothing! So how do i clean it? Its actually quite simple heres the steps
1. Turn Car off and make sure stearing wheel is perfectly straight so that the wheels line up straight!
2. adjust your stearing column to its lowest setting, lever should be under the stearing wheel or behind the left multifunctional switch wich is what you will be cleaning
3. Then place your pointer fingers into the circle slots of both switches( turn signal/windshieldwasher) place thumbs on top and give a nice upward pull should pop right off
4. Next you will see a black piece of plastic, use a five point screw driver to remove single blk bolt
5. Go ahead and unplug both of the connecters on the back side of the blk piece of plastic
6. Next go ahead and use a star head screw driver and remove the 3 or four silver screws
7. after doing so go ahead and lift the multifunctional switch out/ then use rubbing alcohol and clean off the two points of connection wich look like to little pieces of sheet metal touching each other and after doing that simple put back together and you should be set to go! Takes about 20 to thirty minutes if you take your time! Beats paying $250!!

Keep me posted if your not sure how to replace the faulty unit, you can pick up a new one at Auto Zone and they can give you the step by step instructions on how to get the job done with common tools. Good luck friend.
