    Sorry! no. there are Independent After market suppliers for this product, as well as Main dealers. It is a decision of cost against inconvenience. Either way it is replacement of the Harness section for the column only. A possible DIY job, once you acquire the part.Regards,DT

How to remove steering column on a 2005 Buick LeSabre


Steering Column Replacement Hope this helps?

Tools Required

• J 42640 Steering Column Lock Pin
• J 41352 Modular Column Holding Fixture

Removal Procedure

    Warning! Refer to SIR Caution in Cautions and Notices.
    Caution! The wheels of the vehicle must be straight ahead and the steering column in the LOCK position before disconnecting the steering column or intermediate shaft from the steering gear. Failure to do so will cause the SIR coil assembly to become uncentered, which may cause damage to the coil assembly.
    Caution! Once the steering column is removed from the car, the column is extremely susceptible to damage. Dropping the column on its end could collapse the steering shaft or loosen the plastic injections which maintain column rigidity. Leaning on the column could cause the jacket to bend or deform. Any of the above damage could impair the column's collapsible design. If it is necessary to remove the steering wheel, use only the specified steering wheel puller. Under no conditions should the end of the shaft be hammered upon as hammering could loosen plastic injections which maintain column rigidity.
  1. Disable the SIR system. Refer to SIR Disabling and Enabling Zone 3 in SIR.



  2. Insert J 42640 into the steering column access hole in order to lock the steering column. This will maintain the correct orientation.
  3. Raise and support the vehicle. Refer to Lifting and Jacking the Vehicle in General Information.



  4. Remove the intermediate shaft lower pinch bolt.
  5. Remove the intermediate shaft from the steering gear.
  6. Lower the vehicle.



  7. Remove the knee bolster. Refer to Bracket Replacement - Knee Bolster in Instrument Panel, Gages and Console.
  8. Disconnect the steering column wiring harness connector from the main body wiring harness.
  9. Disconnect the shift lever cable from the linear shift assembly.



  10. Remove the shift cable retaining clip.



  11. Press the shift cable tabs (1) together and remove the shift cable (2) from the steering column.



  12. Caution! The steering column should never be supported only by the lower support bracket. Damage to the lower support could result.
    Important Stabilize the studs in order to remove the nuts securing the steering column to the instrument panel.
  13. Support the column.



  14. Remove the lower steering column retaining nuts.
  15. Remove the upper steering column retaining nuts.
  16. Important Discard the clips at the upper steering column support, if equipped. These clips are for assembly plant usage only.
  17. Remove the steering column from the vehicle.
  18. Install the steering column into J 41352 .

Hi, sounds very like you have a broken or sandwitched wire in your column wiring. Chances are if you have a look at the wiring from the column with a torch, you'll be able to see the problem area & rejoin any suspect wires which should fix the problem, hope this does the trick :)
