The signal switch works but wont cancel after making a turn. Could it be the signal canceler switch on the column is bad? If so how hard is it to replace by myself?

If it's an older car it will have a turn signal cam and it's not too hard to replace. Good luck

Brake lights don't work, but fuses are alright


Check to make sure the button above the brake pedel is not stuck in when you hit the brakes. If that is free and working properly your multi function switch on the steering colum is probably bad. The brake light canceler can go bad in these causing no brake lights. The canceler cancels the brake light when the turn signal is on. but sometimes they go bad and cancel both brake lights all the time. So be sure and check to make sure the hazard button is push all the way in before changing the muti fucntion switch. Oh and check the bulb first too of course. Good luck

Head lights wont stay on


Check your steering column. There is a switch that cancels the turn signals in there. If it's bad, your signals will act funny and this also affects the hazard switch. Banging on the dash is what triggers the signals to work as the vibration goes into the steering column also. You might also want to check the fuses, relay switch, located inside the the left fender next to the steering column. Sometimes, the radio and the turn signals will go funky at the same time. Make sure your radio is grounded.
Hope this helps.

1997 Chevrolet Lumina : upper brakelight (window) works, lower brakelights don't work. Changed bulbs and fuse-no go. Most logical theory so far is that they are on seperate circuits, the lower lights run...


Will your Center High-Mount Stop Light (CHMSL) illuminate when you depress the brake pedal, but the lower/outer lights will not?
-- Do you have to hold the signal lever in a certain spot to get the turn signals to flash?
-- Do you have to hold the signal lever in a certain spot to get the lower/outer brake lights to illuminate?
-- Will the signals work in one direction, but not the other?
If you answered yes to any of the preceeding questions, your turn signal switch is likely malfunctioning.

**One more question before we continue: Is the turn signal lever not "cancelling" (returning to the "off" position) after you make a turn? If this is the case, you have a broken "cancelling spring."


Before you begin disassembly of your steering column, verify the turn signal flasher is not malfunctioning. If your brake lights work fine, but not the signals (either direction,) then it's likely the flasher is burnt out. The flasher itself is located underneath the dash near where the steering column passes through the firewall

How can i fix the auto cancel indicator switch on a jaguar xk120


The auto cancel switch is actually just a bump in the steering column that hits the signal lever on the return causing it to turn off the lever. A lot of the times, this little switch or bump breaks. You'll need to remove the top of your steering column cover to get to it

My blinker stays on when i meke a left turn


The problem with the blinker staying on is most likely the cancel spring. In the steering column you have two cancel springs, one for the right turn signal and one for the left turn signal. your left turn cancel spring is probably broken. to replace this spring requires removing the steering wheel and components. on some models you have to replace the whole turn signal module cause it's all one piece. Check with your local dealer or parts store to see which one you have. Hope this helps you out.
