Question about 1995 Oldsmobile Eighty Eight
Just wanting an opinion on the possbility of my cruise not working because the switch is bad. The first thing that I noticed that my cruise was NO LONGER WORKING was when I dimmed the lights and after that my cruise never worked ! My mechanic swears that the switch is fine. I say that it isn't.
I do know that this switch has only a foot or less of actual wires that "plug " in -so replacing this switch appears to be easy !
Thanks for a response !
There is a gray colored wire on the back of the pivot pulse dimmer switch assembly that is most likely the culprit. Not the multi function turn signal/wiper/cruise lever, its the wires that go through the column down to the plug just under the dash at the column. You may be able to see these wires using a flashlight looking into the opening behind the turn signal lever pulling the lever like your dimming the lights may help to see this. The wire may be just hanging there. Very common failure due to the fact that these wires move every time you dim your headlamps. You will have to replace the "Pivot pulse dimmer switch assembly". in the steering column. This switch assembly is attached directly to the turn signal switch. Disabling the air bags and removing the steering wheel will be required. If you decide to do this yourself, I would strongly suggest getting a good service manual and following the procedure to the letter.
