Question about 1998 Chevrolet Lumina
I need to replace the turn signal switch on my 1998 chevy lumina. The original problem is my brake lights will not come on when applying the brakes. I did replace the brake pad switch but still have the problem. The only way my brake lights will come on, after applying the brakes, is by turning on the left turn signal. To replace the turn signal switch I have to remove the steering wheel cover, but I can't seem to figure out how that is done. I afraid to pry and around too much because of the air bag inside the steering wheel. How the heck does the cover come off?
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.
