My son came down and figured it out for me. Not sure what all he did but he had to make a few modifications by splicing the wires together after cutting the wires just under the dimmer switch...then a few adjustments were needed to get it to all work right.
Thanks

This is a common problem for the turn signal switch itself. Try used. You will notice in the instructions to remove the steering wheel. Don't. The removal of the ignition switch is also not necessary. Remove the screws at the bottom of the column where it shows and take a screw driver and pry the other side up to see the 2 screws (torx, or star bits) to remove. This will only take about 20 minutes to perform.

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable.
  2. Remove the 4 retaining screws from the lower column shroud and remove the upper and lower shrouds.
  3. Remove the 2 retaining screws from the multi-function switch and unplug the 2 wiring connectors.
  4. Remove the switch.

To install:
  1. Install the multi-function switch.
  2. Tighten the 2 retaining screws and attach the 2 electrical connectors.
  3. Install the upper and lower column shrouds. Tighten the 4 retaining screws.
  4. Connect the negative battery cable.

Whear is the safty neutral switch at for a 1991 chevy c1500


If it is an auto trans with column shift, that switch is on the steering column, above the brake pedal, close to the floorboard.
Might need to lower the upper end of the steering column where it bolts under the dash to get to it.

1999 Pontiac Bonneville. Directional signal will not cancel from left turn. Please advise how to repair.


The signal switch inside the column under the steering wheel is broken. To remove that, I'd recommend that you get a chilton or haynes manual and follow the directions EXACTLY so you don't trigger the air bag. Pretty sure the part is under $100. and it's not terribly difficult to do if you work carefully and make notes so you don't forget anything.
