Hazard lights won't turn off, all other lights work fine.

The lights are blinking or stay lit on the dash. Blinking is a bad switch, just coming on is a bad ground at the front.

I locked the steering wheel and now cannot turn key at all, red theft light blinking

Put the key in and turn it as you move the steering wheel. left or right. This should release the steering and key. Fords are bad for this. The light blinks all the time, slowly( about once a second). When it blinks fast, then you have a security problem.

Changed rack and pinion. when turning wheel to right horns started blowing. unplugged airbags and horn stopped. drove truck for 1 day now wont start and dome light is blinking and warning lights on dash...

It sounds like you disturbed the wiring or the connector inside the lower portion (inside the cabin, under the dashboard) of the steering column. You may have also pinched wiring higher inside the steering column, up near the horn button. You'll need to track it all down & correct the wiring problems in (and around) the steering column.

1999 buick lesabre my right signal doesnt blink it stays solid , my left turn signal blinks fine i have to manually blink the right side every turn , i put the hazard lights on and the front left and right...

The easiest thing for you to do would be to replace the bulbs that are on that circuit. You should have one or two bulbs with a double filament, one for the brake and turn signal and one for the tail light.
If that does not fix the problem, someone will need to check the circuit for power from the turn signal switch. It takes all of the lights on one side to make the turn signal flash.

Left rear blinker not working but bulb is good. Front works but blinks but fast. Getting no power to rear plug for blinker. Need solution pls???

You'll have to locate the circuit for the left, rear turn signal at the steering column under the dash. A 12v test light should blink when prodding that circuit and the left turn signal is on. If it does not the problem is in the switch. If it does there is an open in that circuit between the point where the test light is and the left, rear bulb. The problem could be with the socket itself.

My 98 ram's cab lights stay on and blink off and on while i am driving, also my front right turn signal light does not work, it is not the bulb? what do you think it is?

The reason ur cab lights go on and off is from the door sensors on the door frame are not sending the correct signal to the light. Ur turn signal is either ur turn signal switch on your steering column or your turn signal relay

All the fuses have been checked. One fuse was blown but it was the 20 amp power outlet, I believe for the outlet under the cig lighter.
