Question about Chevrolet Suburban 1500

1 Answer

I removed the airbag so that could remove the steering wheel to access the screws that held the turn signal/emergency flasher switch in place. I took all the precautions while removing the airbag. I first disconnected the battery, next I removed the fuse in the fuse box, and then I disconnected the connection under the dash. I then removed the airbag and disconnected it from the steering wheel. I reversed the procedure when installing the air bag. Now the "AIRBAG" warning light is "ON", what should I do.

    The door jam switch has been disconnected and I am not sure how to reconnect it. The suburban was customized, but not to my liking that is why I am working on the circuits. Is there another way to reset the airbag module? Or, how do I hook up the door jam switch?

    I can do that. Thanks for the excellent solution and response time. Honesty always pays, thanks for being helpful and honest.

    It worked. It took a minute for me to figure out how to ground the switch (volt meter oN R1k). THANKS A MILLION

    It just plugs up,,if there is one anywhere use it,find the wire to the door jab switch,and ground it real fast and un-ground it 7 times in 5 seconds.this should do the same thing,the door jabs only have the ground side that disconnects the circuit to the dome lights.

How do I locate and remove the TURN SIGNAL FLASHER IN A 1998 NISSAN PATHFINDER

Remove the clamshell, the semi-circular shaped trim cover that sits on the top of the steering column just in front of the steering wheel. The hazard flasher button protrudes through this piece of trim. The clamshell can be unseated by prying gently on the edges with the screwdriver. Set the clamshell aside.
Remove the multifunction switch retaining screw with the Philips screwdriver. The screw is located in the body of the switch, holding it to the steering column.
Disconnect the wiring harness from the multifunction switch by hand and lift it out of the steering column.
Put the replacement multifunction switch in position and reinstall the retaining screw with the Philips screwdriver. Connect the wiring harness back into the body of the multifunction switch.
Place the clamshell back in position, making sure the hazard flasher button protrudes through the hole and push down gently until the clamshell snaps back into position. In some model years, you may need to coax the retaining clips on the edges of the clamshell into the seats on the connecting trim panels.
Test the turn signals, head lights and hazard flashers before driving the Expedition.

Back brake light stay on, replaced brake switch same problem.Truck has over drive and cruies control If you take switch out of circuit the brake lights stay on the same with the turn/hazard flasher.

Your brake lights and your turn signals go through the multifunction (turn signal) switch. It is common for these switches to short internally. Partial disassembly of the steering column is required to replace it. The airbag stsyem must be disabled, then the airbag removed from the steering wheel. Then the steering wheel must be removed to access the screw in the front of the switch assembly. The rest is pretty easy... a few screws holing the lower cover of the dash, the shroud around the steering column and a few connectors to deal with. (see pictures of switch assembly below)
There are two types of these switches available for 2000 S-10. With cruise control and without cruise control. The one WITHOUT cruise control is much more expensive!

I can't find the falsher relay for my BMW 325es, please advice where is the flasher?

The flasher relay is located in the plastic cylinder around the steering column. The steering wheel has to be removed to access 2 screws.

While you're in there spray the switches with an electric cleaner and grease.

If your emergency flashers work, the relay is good and the emergency switch must be good.
Then take a look at the turn signal switch and see if it is connected and is working.

How do you remove the ignition lock cylinder on a 1991 chevy cavalier

The ignition switch removal and installation procedure is given in , under steering, because the steering wheel must be removed for access to the ignition switch.

To remove the ignition lock:
You must remove the steering wheel when replacing the ignition lock. On vehicles with a Supplemental Inflatable Restraint (SIR) system, you must temporarily disable the SIR system and remove the inflator module when removing the steering wheel. Leaving the SIR system on could result in deployment of the air bag and possible personal injury.
  • Disconnect the negative battery cable, and remove the steering wheel.
  • Remove the bumper and the carrier snapring retainer from the steering shaft.
  • Use a lock plate compressor screw tool to install the lock plate compressor screw in the upper steering shaft. To keep the shaft from telescoping, tighten it to 40 inch lbs.
  • Using the lock plate compressor tool, install on the upper steering shaft, tighten it to depress the shaft lock. Remove the shaft lock retainer, the compressor tool and the steering shaft lock.
  • Remove the turn signal canceling cam assembly. Put the turn signal switch in the "N" position and remove the upper bearing spring.
  • Position the turn signal switch so the mounting screws can be removed through the holes in the switch and remove the turn signal lever.
  • Remove the turn signal switch-to-steering column screws and lift the turn signal switch. Remove the wire protector and disconnect the turn signal switch connector.
  • Use a terminal remover tool to disconnect the buzzer switch wires from the turn signal switch connector. Remove the buzzer switch assembly with needle-nose pliers.
  • Place the lock cylinder in the ACC position, then remove the lock retaining screw and the lock cylinder set.
  • To install the new cylinder lock, reverse the removal procedures.
  • Tighten the lock retaining screw to 22 inch lbs., the turn signal switch screws to 59 inch lbs. and turn the turn signal lever screw to 53 inch lbs.
  • As part of the final replacement procedures, check the operation of the switches and the steering column.

Hello, i broke the emergency light switch off on my 1996 chevy s10 and now the emergency lights will not turn off. how do i fix the switch?

This is not a real easy task. You have to remove the steering wheel and Airbag (if you have one). The steering wheel lock ring (locks steering wheel when key is removed) Then there are three screws that hold the turn/emg flasher indicator switch in place. You will also have to lower the steering column down from the dash to get the wires and plug though. Set aside a few hours if this is your first time. Good Luck

Replace turn signal arm on 2000 vw new beetle

You have to remove the airbag in the steering wheel. Unplug the battery. Place the steering wheel in the outer most lower position. Turn the wheel and in a certain position in the back using a mirrior you'll see holes. With a small screw driver you can unclip the airbag. Turn the wheel the other way to access the other clip. There are 2. Once removed unclip; the harness connector (yellow from the airbag and place it so the vw symbol of the airbag is facing upwards so if it does go off it won't fly upwards. **You should use an antistatic ground on yourself not to deploy the airbag. then use a 12mm triple square drive socket to remove the steering wheel. note the position as it can be placed in several positions. Behind the wheel is the steering angle sensor/ clockspring. DO NOT TURN the clockspring and make sure it stays in it's position when reinstalled or it will break. From there you can remove the trim on the column and access the switches. When reinstalling the airbag VW states to reinstall everything final, close all windows, put the key ON position get out of the car close the door, and only then put the battery back. This is because if the airbag does go off for any reason you will not be in the car when you put the key on. If it does go off the key will already be on and you will be safe. This is the procedure from VW and they state that if damge to other components are affected by key on and battery connected it is still safer than getting an airbag in your face. Just precautionnary. Note the airbag clips are hard to access to remove it. You have to place the flat end of the screw driver on the upper part of the clip and kin of press it downwards. Let me know, but if you are not comfortable or not experienced in airbags do not attempt this yourself.!!!

Replace turn signal switch 1998 chevy lumina

You may look or feel the back side of the steering wheel, looking for 2 screws that hold the airbag to the wheel, these will be internal torq type screws (star) you may have to rotate the steering wheel 90 degrees to access the screws. You should first disable the airbag, by removing the airbag fuse, and or by disconnecting a yellow connector located near the base of the steering column. under the knee bolster.(panel below column). Once the retaining screws are removed, lift bag and disconnect the 2 connector to the airbag, the ground for the horn, and the horn contact wire, which requires you to push down and twist counter clockwise, damage to the horn contact ring will occur if you try and just pull connector from the ring. Now you can remove the steering wheel, may require a puller, and the you will have access to the turn signal switch.

1997 sonoma turn signal flasher

The flashers are located behind the instrument panel trim, roughly between the base of the steering wheel and the ashtray, just to the left of the car lighter. To access the flashers, you need to at least loosen the lower instrument panel trim. Just under the steering column there are two screws with star heads. One to the left of the column and one to the right. You need to remove both of these screws. You will need to remove your ashtray. On the upper left corner of the hole left by removing the ashtray is a 9/32 hex head screw. You need to remove it. Once these three screws are removed you should be able to pull down on this portion of trim under your instrument cluster. When you do this it may cause trim around your instrument cluster to loosen that you can just pop back into place with your hand. You won't need to pull down to far on this trim piece as there are still some screws holding the bottom. You should be able to pull it down far enough to see the flasher units behind and just to the left of the cigarette lighter. There are two flasher units and I found that the one on the right is for the turn signals.On the left the other is for the hazard flashers. It may be a hand scraping experience to replace the flasher but it beats paying someone to do it for you. They are easy to recognize because the are silver and round metallic plug ins. The flasher unit on the left is for the emergency flashers and the one on the right is for turn signals. You can place the emergency flasher unit into the slot the turn signal unit belongs until you get a replacement. These flasher units are pretty cheap.
