Hello mfischett: My name is Roger and I will answer your question for you. If you have the proper tools the job is easy. If you do not have them you will end up breaking things. You will need to remove the steering wheel. to do this requires the tool to remove the air bag. You will need the tool to pull the steering wheel. Remove the column cover. To remove the multi - function switch you will need a tamper proof torq bit tool. These are special tools. Should you not have these tools I would have someone else do the job that have the proper tools.
Should you need further help please just ask. Please rate the quality of your answer. This way we can tell your answer was of help. Thank You for using Fix Ya. Roger

My brake lights are giving me problems. One in the center works the other ones don't. last night service electrical system came on the dash. What could it be. Turn systems don't work e

It sounds like you need a new turn signal switch. The rear brake lights, but not the center one, are routed through the turn signal switch. The cruise control may come back when the brake lights are restored.

There must be a trouble code associated with the service light. You should have that checked. It may only tell you what you already know, but you should have it checked. You will anyway want to erase the code once the repairs are done.

? Does all other functions on the turn signal lever work? Is the switch pushed to the right? (cruse on) Does the button on the end of the turn signal lever pushed in? I don't mean to be telling you the obvious but I make mistakes like that. Have you done a scan (obdII) for any errors? The multifunction switch on the steering colum controls many functions of your buick. Did you check the fuse. See owners manual either glove box, or passangers side under the hood.(its labeled cruse) Are your brake lights working? (they deactivate the cruse control) If your 1999 Buick is in fair condition I wouldn't look for a wiring problem (corroded connectors) The cruise contol module is located under the hood on the drivers side inner fender wall check for damage ie connectors. It could be a sensor in the transmission?(speed control) Just start eliminating the obvious Edmonds, Haynes, Chillions have manuals that are available at most major libraries for diagrams an suggestions. Sorry but without more specific info. there can be a multitude of causes.

I just try to help

Electrical problems - fuel gage pulsates with turn signal - fuel gage pigs to right when ignition is turned on and then recovers to normal position - shift control will slightly effect fuel gage - some...


Unfortunatly you have aproblem with either the dash control module or the dash itself which will need to be replaced.

Hope this helps.

When I turn on my headlights, my lights go out between low beams and daytime running lights. This happens a few times before they eventually stay on. Also my high beams won't stay on.

This happened to me also, a few months ago. I've got a '96 Sunfire GT. 2.4. It tured out to be a bad headlight switch. It was easy to fix. I bought a new one @ Auto Zone for around $70.00, popped the cover off the steering collom undid a few screws, unconnected a few wiring harness connectors, and took the old one out & put the new one in. The unit in question contains the cruse control & turn signal as well. It's all one big part. Good luck. _J_

Brake lightswill not work aven after changing Bulbs. What could be the problem?

Need to check the brake light switch. ok down by the brake pedal there is a switch that tells the lights to turn on when you push it. almost always easy to fix and you can buy a switch aftermarket for around $10 bucks. If you have cruse control a good way to check the switch is to run the cruse con and try to get it to stop crusing by pushing the brake pedal if it keeps going thats your problem. hope this helps

Turn signals dont work at all the green arrow doesnt even come on i already replaced the flasher relay but im being told there is another one where is it

hello. check you fuse panal. look in the user manual that came with the car. it will have a fuse panal diagrame of what fuses control what. check if the twight senenal is working. it might be burned out. it will be located behind down to the right of your cruse control on off switch. wiper switch top headlight switch mid- cruse bottom. your cruse control switch and your headlight switch will have to be removed to get at the twilight sentenal switch. mabe your turn signal lights are buned out. you can replace them. you will have to remove your speedometer panal to get at them. an other posabllity is that your turnsignal switch on the steering collom isn't working. I segest that you buy the haynes repaire book. you can get it at canadiantire. and online at your fuse pannal should be down on the bottom left on the drivers side underneath the dashboard where your parking break is.
