I need to know what the part between the steering wheel and the dashboard is called. I went to turn on my wipers and the handle broke. I was told I have to replace the entire piece that the lights control and the wiper control are on.

How do you change the dimmer/turn signal level in stering colum

most just push into the wiper switch.Disconnect battery negative First wait 3-5 minutes Then on the back side of steering wheel is are the retaining screws that hold the air bag to the steering wheel once removed disconnect wires and place pad side down then remove steering wheel, now you are looking at the air bag cable reel mark it position and remove without turning it. If installed wrong it will break. Remove lock plate then turn signal switch then you can see the handle nub with a small screwdriver pry nub out of wiper switch. and reassemble.

My turn signal handle broke which controls windshield wipers too. How to fix?

buy a used multi-function switch for your car. these can be found on eBay and at junkyards/recyclers.
most likely any mid-90s GM will have the same switch. cost used about 20 bucks, new about 200 so find a used one as your car is only worth 500 bucks!

you are going to need someone who knows what they are doing to replace it as it sits under the airbag under the steering wheel. a body shop may well be cheaper than a dealer for that labor cost.

I have a 2001 VW golf gti and lately I've been having a real problem with my wipers..They only work on very fast, the slow and intermittent speeds don't work, and neither does the wipers when you spray the...

If it was the relay, they would not work at all. There is a speed control for the wipers that controls the speed and delay (not the switch in the steering wheel), call the dealer to see if it is a separate module or integrated into the motor (if it is the later, you'll need a rebuilt/new unit).

Hope this helps.

My mom broke the windshield wiper handle off trying to turn off my wipers because they wouldn't turn off and now I have to hold down the handle to keep my wipers on. What can I dod to fix this?

The windshield wiper/washer functions are incorporated into
a switch on the right side of the steering column. If the switch
is broken, you will need a repair manual to replace it or have
Honda take care of it.

Turn signal handle broke off and is hanging by wires

You can buy the turn signal switch at Napa or other auto parts stores. It's a combination switch. Remove the steering wheel and remove the 2 screws that hold the turn signal switch on, unplug the wires and installation is reverse of removal.

Car steering problems

You're going to have to physically look and see what exactly is broken. The tire-rods are your bars that extend from the steering box, to the wheel. The rack & pinion is the steering box. You may also want to take the steering wheel off, and have the big rod, that extends through your firewall checked, to see if it's that item that broke. Any of these will cause steering failure.
