Dear Turn Signal.....
This is an easy repair....thankfully you have a problem that pretty much has pinned itself.This repair will take less than an hour and a half.When you remove the upper and lower steering heel cover you have the entire multi function switch exposed.Be sure to check the pigtail(electrical connection) on the wires going into the switch just to make sure that they are not loose....after you have reaffirmed that.....then you can be sure it is the multifunction switch itself If you have any more question you are more than welcome to get back to me... I HOPE I CAN HELP!!!

SOURCE: when I use the turn lever to signal a turn, the wiper starts and makes one pass

There is a problem with the contacts in the switch, you will need to replace the switch to correct this issue.

98 monte carlo z34 sometimes wipers won't shut off. is this the turn signal lever or the wiper delay board?


Could be either one.
The wiper switch could be providing power, and there is a park switch in the motor that provides power until the wiper arms "park".
You may be able to disconnect the wiper switch to find out.
Chances are you'll need a wiring diagram to test the circuits.

The 2004 Nissan Sentra I own intermittent wipers don't work. Can anyone tell me how to fix them?


The intermittent function for your wipers is controlled by the wiper control amplifier. This is an integral part of the wiper (combination) switch and is serviced only by replacing the switch assembly.

My running lights and dash lights short circuit when the turning signal lever is moved even the slightest or if the car hits a bump or sometimes for nothin what to do?


If it happens when the turn sinal lever is moved, it means you have a short circuit at that point...i would be replacing the combination switch (which is the turn lever and wiper switch in one unti), possibly from a wrecker.....

Sounds like you have a bad switch assembly. Is yours the type that the wipers/ turn signals and washer operate all on the same lever? the turn signal switch ? If so that is most likely the problem.

Turn Signals and High Beams are not working and I have checked the fuse what else could it be? Everything else is working


Sounds like the combination switch is bad. The comination switch is for the turn signals and high beams and sometimes cruise control and windshield wipers. The combination switch is the turn signal lever. Also might want to check turn signal flasher operation.
