Everything goes through the Turn signal stalk. You may be able to remove the plastic cover from the steering column. Sometimes the Ignition switch will prevent removal of the cover and it must be removed. If you can get enough clearance around the plastic cover you can see the mounting screws for the Turn stalk.

The stalk comes out of a box like shaped unit and has 2 or more female Torx screws. If there is a lot of play where the screws hold the box in place, your moving parts may be skipping over the slot needed to turn off your blinkers. All that may be needed is to tighten the mounting screws so the parts are tightly held together.

If the tab that stops the blinkers is broken off, you will need to replace the tab. If the tab is part of the stalk you will need the entire Turn signal assembly. This is called a MPS multi position switch and can range from $35 to $80.

You may find one cheaper in a Salvage yard, but they are available as aftermarket parts from Auto parts stores.

2004 Toyota highlander steering wheel is locked but turned halfway, key wont turn and wheels are straight


there is a load on the lock pin in the steering column try turning the steering wheel a bit left or right to release the pin as you try turning the key.
Steering wheel locks never lock straight ahead as the idea is that if the car is being stolen it will turn a circle rather that move straight

Turn signal switch repair


The steering column wheel has 2 pins pushed into the back side of it and as you turn the steering wheel making a turn, the pins slide over the humps of the blinker signal. As you return the wheel back to center to drive straight, these pins then hit the humps in the turn signal and push the turn signal back to the original position. It sounds like one of these pins fell out or broke off. You need to pull steering wheel and check to see if these pins are still inserted on the back side of the steering wheel.

I njust noticed my steering wheel in my 2000GMC 1500 is now rotated about 100 degrees when the truck is going straight. My mech. says tie rods and tierod ens are tight and everthing seems normal...he did...


a bad idler arm/pitman arm, You will have a hard time trying to keep the car going straight, it will wander all over the road.
  1. Road walking. When the vehicle wanders back and forth in the direction of travel and it is difficult to keep it straight.
  2. When sitting still, there is considerable play in the steering wheel. It can be moved considerably with no resistance.
  3. When sitting still, and with the front wheels off the ground, it is possible to move the wheels side to side without the steering wheel moving. If there is to much play in the steering wheel or side to side movement of the wheel when the vehicle is stopped could indicate there is a problem with the idler arm.

Steering wheel adjustment , the steering whell is 90degrees off but the car does not pull eather direction. car was stolen no damage just steering whell truned


jack front of car up then turn steering wheel full lock to full lock and count the number of turns from either side then divide by 2 so you have the straight ahead position then remove the steering wheel and replace in the straight ahead position ,iam saying this because the vehicle may have been re tracked and only one track rod end adjusted so you have say 2 turns to the left and 2 and half to the right if you follow me .or remove the steering wheel then just hold it on and slowly drive forewards and lift wheel and refit to the correct position

Wont disengage out of 4 wheel drive 1998 ford ranger first time its stuck in 4 low we have backed up turned switch numerous times shut it off and restarted


Be sure to put the truck in neutral, while engine is running, while you disengage from 4 wheel drive (low) to 4 wheel drive (high) and then finally to 2 wheel drive. It is critical to shift transmission into neutral when switching out of 4WD Low, as indicated in your owner's manual. Hopefully, this will help to FixYa problem!

Four wheel drive locked in but front tires wont spin in 96 chevorlet sliverado


If the Tires wont spin then it isnt locked in.
If it really is engaged like you think it is and they dont turn then something is broken in the differential. If that was the case then it should be makeing lots of noise.
Now it is very very common for the electro-mechanical device that engages the the 4wheel drive at the differential to go bad. If you look at the front differential you cant miss the 4 wheel drive actuator. It has a couple wires that come out and plug into the wiring harness.
Usually if this part fails I understand the 4wheel drive indicator lights wont come on? I could be wrong on that. My sub is 3 years older and that was the case with it.

Flasher works, hazards work, but when i turn on my turn signal the lights dont blink. They do when i turn the hazards on though. What is the problem here?


This seems to be a common problem. I bought mine from my uncle and had this issue. Your going to have to pull the steering wheel off and clean the contacts inside the column. Its not hard, just make sure you have the wheels straight so you put the wheel back on straight, and put all the parts back in the housing. Takes 1 or 2 hours.

My 2001 chrysler sebring has been fine, but tonight i put they key in and it wont turn, it feels like something mechanical not electrical...they key goes in and out, just wont turn....any thoughts?


When you put the key in the ignition, try giving it a few good taps right on top of they key. That usually does the trick for me. Also, always be sure the wheels are straight before turning off the ignition. For some reason, parking with the wheels turned often causes this lockup problem for me. It can be a pain, but just keep tapping and it should unlock.
