    Hi,



    Clarification: You might want to Check your Wiring from the Bottom of the Steering Colum to your Signal Flasher First.I dout this is the Problem ,But its Easy to Test and Inexpencsive.Before you Pull your Steering Wheel.



    The Signal Switch is Inside your Top Steering Colum, You'll have to Remove the Steering Wheel to get to it. Your Signal Arm you use to Signal that your Turning Left or Right is Screwed into your Signal Swith.



    You'll need to un-Screw that arm 1st, Then you'll see small screws that Hold the Switch in Pace,Remove them and you also have to Disconnect the wires also,Remember how these come off,So you'll get them in The Right Place When you Put in Your New Switch.

Yes there is and it will be in ya stearing colum. Chance are it is a wire that has chafed though. Pull it apart and inspect all your wires it could only be a small hole in one wire causing the problem.

I would check your brake light swich located under dash just fallow your brake pedle with a test light see if you have power going to it slitely press brake pedle see if other side of switch has power (key on car not running) if not try ajusting it by pulling on it or unscewing it if all checks out ok replace turn signal switch disconnect battery remove center part of steerring remove center bolt with steerring puller pull steering wheel with locking plate puller pull locking plate remove turn signal handle emergency button three scews holding turn signal under dash fallow steering colum disconect wires on right side (passenger side) tape a long wire to end of connector pull turn signal without pulling tape wire all the way out so you can tape it to new turn signal wire connector to be able to pull wires back down steerring colume (you might have to losen steerring colume and bracket two scews under dash four on steering colume)

Need to remove steering column on a 1992 lincoln town car


Remove the steering wheel, turn signal reset (plastic), remove clip and spring. Remove trim to expose the entire colum. Disconnect all connectors. There are four main bolts holding the colum up. Remove the bolts and lower the colum. At the end of the steering shaft there is a bolt going through the colum. Remove the bolt. The colum can then be removed.

92 buick lesabre, left blinker won't work unless you move it manually. bulbs and fuse are fine. hazards work.


Hi Friend:

Since you've check or Changed your Bulbs and Fuse also Check or Replace your Turn Signal Flasher,Just as a Percation i would Double Check Fuses,Bulbs and Signal flasher.

If these are All showing bad I would say your Signal Switch has Stopped Working.

To Replace the Signal Swith :

1st Disconnect your Negative Battery Cable.

Remove Steering Wheel (you'll need a Puller, the remove the Shroud around the Steering Wheel Colume.

CAUTION= If you have Air Bags be careful. But you will have to remove the Air Bag Module by removing the coil lock spring Screw.

Then remove the Retaing ring and Coil Spring it will still be attached to your wiring=Just let it Hang.

Next you'll need a Compression Lock Spring Plate Tool.

Attach it to the Center of the Steering Colume, Rotate the Nut Clockwise to Remove,After Compressed you'll see a Metal Snap ring Remove it from the Groove then remove the Tool& Plate

Now you'll need to remove the Plastic Cancel ,the ring and ALL the Bearing including the Bearing Race.

Remove the Signal Arm Lever Screw. then the Signal switch Screws. Pull the Switch out and let it Hang(Still attached to the Wiring.

Get down under then you'll have to look for the screws that hold the wiring to steering colume, Remove then.

Then remove the Retaining Rng and the Wire Plug Protector.Now you Can Pull the Signal Swith Out.

Installing New Swith Simply Reverse the Removal Directions to Install your New Switch.

Please take time to Vote on my Quality of Service and the Help i Provided And a Small Testamony would be Great.If you don't mind.

Thanks for Using FIXYA

My turn signal flashes really fast I replaced the bulb and it still does it unless you wiggle the handle, The handle its self works properly i.e. clicks into position for left or right turn, is there a...


try your emergency flashers, do they blink at a normal speed? if yes, replace flasher for turn signals.if not check the bulbs on the side that blinks fastest,even if they look good there could be a broken filiment.tap on the bulb, if the filiment moves it's a bad bulb.

Blowing brake light fuses everytime you hit brakes.


Sounds like a short in the steering colume, maybe the turn signal switch, or a wire that the insulation got wore thru in the colume. Unhook break light switch and try the turn signals and hazards again and see what happens, maybe you can isolate it that way. Also if you havent done it already chk.the sockets in tailight housing for corrosion and bear wires, or anything, even ground wires.

Turn signals dont work at all hazards too


if the fuse is good then the multifunction switch is bad. this is the switch in the steering colum. this switch comes with the signal arm that comes out the side of steering colum as a complete assembley. the top and bottom covers of the steering colum must be removed to change switch.

No turn signals or brake lights on left and right but brake light on top


I agree. My brake light dont work. Only the third brake light does. The running lights work but when i apply the brakes the rear tails dont light up.
I currently have this issue along with the signals dont work unless I bang the top of the steering colum. The hazard switch doesnt work either. If the signals dont work it makes this very quick clicking sound on the passenger side. I checked the fuses and they are good. The bulbs still work. The brake switch works cause the third brake light goes on. And seeing as I am having a problem with signals.....GM says I have to replace the switch in the steerg colume. Its a little box about the size of a cigarette pack. If you take apart the panels off ( right behind the steering wheel, where the hazard switch is) ...that is where it is located. Its plugged into the signal lever. Hope this helpa....Good luck everyone with this issue.
