Winkers does not turn off automatically


the indicator unit under the steering wheel has a spring loaded section that hits a pin on the wheel so that when you turn back the pin hits the spring section and pulls the lever to the central position. You may have to remove the wheel and replace this section or switch.

How to replace dimmer switch


Hi Klambert, Remove the boss from the center of the steering wheel, usually held in place from behind by screws. Remove the air bag by unplugging the harness and remove the cassette with the air bag and horn connections. Remove the nut at the center of the column and match mark both the wheel and column for correct assembly. Remove the steering wheel with the relevant puller and then the plastic cowlings. Disconnect the electrical connections at the multi socket. There are four screws holding the stalk assembly in place. Remove those and then the assembly and replace. Assembly is opposite, but do not forget to fit the steering wheel using the match marks. Regards John

Wipers only work when i indicate left


I think you need to replace the wiper switch.
Removing the switch can be a pain.. Firstly, you need to remove the trim around the steering column. Now this may be difficult as you may need to remove the steering wheel first. This is complicated by the fact that you have Airbag on the wheel that must be disarmed properly by a tech...
Scared yet..? Don't be, ok if you can get the trims off, check and see if the switch is screwed into the column retainer. If you can see the screw heads by looking down the shaft of the switch, good, remove the screws and the switch should come out just enough for you to unlock the wiring, unlock the wiring taking note of which plugs go where and take the stalk out. If you cannot see any screws, then remove the steering wheel as it may all be one assembly. Once the wheel is off and the trims are off, there should be four screws holding the assembly onto the column. Once these are out and you have released the wiring, the switch assembly should come out. Next, look for the wires which go up inside the stalk itself and take note of where they connect. Now, on the end of the stalk, there should be a small cap which covers a clip which holds the switch onto the end of the stalk. Gently prise out the cap and the clip (dont lose either the cap or the clip) and draw the switch off the end of the stalk. If it is the type I am thinking of, the switch will come off and you can see the wiring into the switch. Now, gently give each wire a tug, that is, pull it back from the switch. If any of the wires seems to stretch, then replace that wire, crimp or solder a new length of wire to the switch and to the connection on the other end. If non of the wires stretch, pull them the other way, down to the main assembly and replace any that stretch.
Then, reassemble the switch and stalk, replace the trims and refit the steering wheel.
If you have an airbag in the steering wheel, you may need special screwdriver tips to remove the screws holding the steering wheel cover on, the nut holding the wheel on is under this cover. They usually use torx screws in here.
The steering wheel is fitted to a tapered shaft so leave the nut on a couple of threads and by placing both feet on the fllor behind the pedals and pulling, you can usually get the wheel off otherwise you may have to use a wheel puller. NEVER use a hammer on this assembly EVER !!!!
Once the airbag is off, dont turn the ignition on as this may set a fault code and cause the airbag lamp to come on disabling the airbag system. DONT probe any wires that have a yellow sheath or outer covering or yellow connectors on them. You really dont want an airbag going off anywhere near your head !!!
Take your time and if you need too, draw little pictures of where things went to remind you when you reassemble things.
Now, there is always the chance that you have a body control module, this means that when you operate a switch, all you are doing is sending a signal to a computer. This computer then operates the device. If this is the case then you need to check the switch ( yes I know this is a pain) but then you may need to check the control module as well. This may be better done by a professional.

How do i change my signal switch in my 1993 mazda 929


Hi Shannon, befor you dive in and replace the indicator switch I would suggest you check the flasher unit. To replace the indicator switch you will need to remove the steering wheel (this usually means using a puller) Don't forget to punch match marks on the steering wheel and the column which must be aligned when assembling. Remove the steering wheel center cover. then the covers on the steering column Removed the screws (usually four) holding the stalk switch. don't forget to disconnect the battery and the wiring connection to the stalk switch. After replacing the assembly is opposite.to dismantling. Regards John

2001 jeep grand cherokee laredo, lights come one intermittently, horn came on unexpectedly and wouldn't turn off. How do I fix that?


Lights intermittent can be caused by switch or relay. Try swapping the Low Beam relay with another similar relay (horn relay is a good choice) to see if that resolves it. These relays are in the Junction Block--may be under the hood or in the car but not in the big box by the battery). If this doesn't fix it, the problem is likely the headlamp switch.

Horn coming on is usually caused by a broken switch or stripped wire insulation inside the steering column. You would usually have to take the steering wheel off to fix it, and this requires special tools; however, if the problem happens to be under the steering column shroud, you may be able to fix it without taking off the steering wheel. Take the shroud off and see if you can follow the black/red horn wire. Follow it as far as you can to check for stripped insulation contact with any metal. If you lights switch is bad, you can also change that while you have the shroud off.

Please let me know if you have questions.

Where's turn signal switch? on c280 1994 mercedes


The switch is the stalk assembly on steering column. The hazard switch is the relay(FLASHER). To replace switch r&r LF under dash and unplug 2 connectors at base of steering column(electrical). You will need a long t20 socket to remove airbag and then a 10mm allen to remove steering wheel. There are a series of screws to remove the c.c. switch steering airbag contact and blinker switch. I would recommend replacing the hazard switch first unless you are certain that the blinker switch is bad.
