What are the instructions to remove and replace the combo turn signal switch, located in the steering column, for a 1999 bravada


Warning: 1995 and later models are equipped with an airbag. Always turn the steering wheel to the straight ahead position, place the ignition switch in Lock and remove key, then remove the airbag fuse and unplug the yellow Connector Position Assurance (CPA) connector at the base of the steering column before working in the vicinity of the impact sensors, steering column or instrument panel to avoid the possibility of accidental deployment of the airbag, which could cause personal injury. The yellow wires and connectors routed through the instrument panel are for this system. Do not use electrical test equipment on these yellow wires or tamper with them in any way while working under the instrument panel.
Caution: On models equipped with a Delco Loc II anti-theft audio system, be sure the lockout feature is turned off before performing any procedure which requires disconnecting the battery.

  • The turn signal switch function is incorporated into the multi-function switch, along with the wiper/washer and headlight dimming controls.
  • Disconnect the negative battery cable. Remove the steering column covers and the drivers knee bolster.
  • Remove the two Torx screws securing the multi-function switch to the top of the steering column.
  • Clip the wire-ties securing the multi-function switch harness to the other steering column wires.
  • At the bottom of the steering column, remove the bolt securing the large bulkhead electrical connector to the firewall.
  • Separate the two multi-function switch connectors from the large bulkhead connector.
  • The multi-function switch and its harness must be replaced as a unit.
  • Installation is the reverse of removal

    No high beam headlights 1996 crown victoria


    does the flash to pass function work? That uses high beam bulbs.

    If yes, I would bet $100 it's the lighting control module. Very expensive. @ $500. Can buy for $250 @ tascafordparts.com.

    Sometimes on Ebay for cheap price.

    --------------------------------
    Lighting Control Module Principles of Operation
    NOTE: Due to varying wattage ratings and resulting current draw, certain aftermarket headlamp bulbs may cause the lighting control module (LCM) to shut down the short circuit protection, resulting in the low beams becoming inoperative. Verify that the headlamp bulbs meet Ford specifications.
    The lighting control module (LCM) receives inputs from the following:
    • headlamp switch
    • multifunction switch
    • photocell and amplifier
    Depending on the inputs received, the LCM will command the headlamps on or off.

    Power is supplied to the headlamps through lighting control module Circuit 502 (GY) and circuit protection C in the fuse junction panel. Ground is provided to the headlamp bulb and retainer (13N021) through Circuit 57 (BK).

    The lighting control module is located under the instrument panel, to the right of the steering column, under the lower steering column cover.

    Removal and Installation
    1. Open hood. Disconnect battery ground cable (14301).
    1. Disengage three pushpins and remove lower driver side intrument panel (04320) finish panel.
    1. Locate lighting control module above accelerator pedal.
    1. Disconnect bottom two eletrical connectors from lighting control module.
    1. Remove two screws retaining LCM to bracket and unclip from bracket.
    1. Remove lighting control module from bracket and disconnect two remaining electrical connectors.
    1. To install, reverse Removal procedure. Check lighting control module for proper operation.
    ---------------------------------

    the module is about 6 inches lng and 4 inches wide and has 3 wire connectors.
