2004 ford taurus turn signals don't turn off when steering wheel turns straight again


There is a cam assembly inside the steering wheel. It is not too easy to get to and wears out too quickly.

Hi: I have a 1998 Chevy Blazer 4.3 The brake lights and turn signals don't work.... HELP


Sounds like you have a bad multiple function turn signal switch. A couple things to try With your foot pressing on the brake pedal, Press the four way flasher button up and down, press and hold it down, pull up on it, or wiggle it. If the brake lights come on during any one of those replace the switch. With the key in the run position pull, push, the turn signal lever slightly. If the turn signal or brake lights start to work replace the switch. Let me know if none of those work, they usually do, and I'll get you some more in depth diagnostic info.

I have a 1998 chevy lumina and the rear brake lights will not work. I have replaced the bulbs and fuse. the Light in the rear window works.


I fixed the same problem by using a few inches of rubber hose to fill the gap between the front of turn signal lever and the forward edge of the opening in the steering column shroud. The hose was sliced lengthwise to permit it to grip the shroud. The goal is to have the hose push against the lever with enough force to hold the lever back and still allow the lever to move in all necessary directions while being prevented from moving forward, which seems to cause the electrical malfunction. var viewReq = new Array();function vu(u) {var i=new Image();i.src=u.replace("&","&");viewReq.push(i);} vu("http://pubads.g.doubleclick.net/pagead/adview?ai\x3dB9JIZ8BEpToq6LJbSjQTU2vz4A46foZQC7r3YkRbUk4e8FgAQARgBIAA4AVCAx-HEBGDJtsiGxKPIF4IBF2NhLXB1Yi0zMzg0OTQ2Mjg1MzUxOTU2oAHQlMDzA7IBDXd3dy5maXh5YS5jb226AQozMDB4MjUwX2FzyAEJ2gE_aHR0cDovL3d3dy5maXh5YS5jb20vY2Fycy90NDE1MTIyNS0xOTk4X2NoZXZ5X2x1bWluYV9yZWFyX2JyYWtlmALcC8ACBMgC9vHKCeACAOoCFDYxNTMvZml4Lm1vdG9ycy9jYXJzqAMB6ANZ6AOKAfUDAAAABOAEAYAGhIr79L6nnJQE\x26sigh\x3d5M1kvvT1_g0") body { background: #FFFFFF; margin: 0px; padding: 4px; font-family: arial, verdana, sans-serif; font-size: 10pt; } p { margin:0px; padding:0px; } .spwrap { background: transparent url(/wysiwyg_rte/misspell.gif) repeat-x scroll center bott adserver.bs?cn=bsr&flightid=2992119&page=&pluid=0&pos=1410p-64st3khshcvuk.gif?media=ad&p=tikr8aalhqokg2kwpx8tvns5rnfcb67z2iloww&r=253461340&rand=72052&labels=_qc.imp,_imp.adserver.rtb,_imp.rtbposition=0&rtbip=63.251.164.205&rtbdata2=eaaaekrpc2nvdw50vglyzv9rmy0xmsdudcivjdcu8h46p2h0dha6ly93d3cuzml4eweuy29tl2nhcnmvddqxnteymjutmtk5of9jagv2ev9sdw1pbmffcmvhcl9icmfrzvaawghms2wzylnnpwgbdyk2xj-aaf-ymtwlkagzsgugaqcoaf2bc7aba7obhunbrvnft01lnmg5yjv2qu90s2n6rm8ywunundoxwagg4wfiabipuiovjg

1995 with turn signals not working


Will your Center High-Mount Stop Light (CHMSL) illuminate when you depress the brake pedal, but the lower/outer lights will not?
-- Do you have to hold the signal lever in a certain spot to get the turn signals to flash?
-- Do you have to hold the signal lever in a certain spot to get the lower/outer brake lights to illuminate?
-- Will the signals work in one direction, but not the other?
If you answered yes to any of the preceeding questions, your turn signal switch is likely malfunctioning.

**One more question before we continue: Is the turn signal lever not "cancelling" (returning to the "off" position) after you make a turn? If this is the case, you have a broken "cancelling spring."


Before you begin disassembly of your steering column, verify the turn signal flasher is not malfunctioning. If your brake lights work fine, but not the signals (either direction,) then it's likely the flasher is burnt out. The flasher itself is located underneath the dash near where the steering column passes through the firewall
