NO, the steering wheel stays on, all you need to do is remove the covers, look under the bottom cover there will be screws that hold the top and bootom covers together, after you remove the covers you will see two screws that hold switch to column, remove them piull switch out and remove connectors and then install new one, heres a picture of the switch to help you, good luck, hope this helps.replacing turn signal switch in a 2006 Dodge Ram - johnjohn2_15.gif

if these are the turn signal lights check the fuses, if they are good try the bulbs if the bulbs work in another socket then you need to replace the the multi-switch that is located on the steering column.

2006 Dodge Ram 2500 - Turn light problems. Turn on right signal and left one blinks and vice versa.


this is because of the multi function switch "aka turn signal switch" it is a very very very common problem with these model trucks. What you have to do it replace the multifunction switch by removing the air bag, pulling the sterring wheel and then removing the clockspring behind that is the mulitfunction switch which just un screws. Everybody freaks out about removing the air bag but as long as you disconnect both negative battery terminals " if you have a diesel" you are perfect the air bag has two 10m bolts behind the steering wheel and it will pretty much fall in your lap. then un plug the two wire connection and the horn connection. The hanes manuel helps alot for pictures but it is kinda vage in some areas but with a little common since any joe smoe can do it.

Hoe to remove the ignition switch in 05 ram 1500


Step1 Disconnect the negative battery cable from the terminal on the battery. Remove the upper and lower steering column covers by unscrewing or unclipping them. Step2 Remove the steering wheel by lifting off the center cover, disconnecting the horn wire and removing the retaining nut and washer. Make a mark on the steering wheel spline and the wheel itself so you can line it back up precisely. Pull the steering wheel straight back to remove from the shaft. Step3 Take off windshield wiper and turn signal switches by pulling them off as you did the steering wheelmag-glass_10x10.gif and disconnect the wiring. Slide the spacer sleeve off of the steering column. Step4 Unscrew the ignition switch mounting screws. Pull out the ignition switch. Disconnect the wiring connector from back of the ignition switch. Simply loosen the tabs and pull it out. Step5 Insert your key into the ignition. Turn the ignition switch to the locked position. Depress the retaining pin with a small screwdriver and turn the key to the Off position to free the cylinder. Once it is free, turn the key to lock position and remove the key and key cylinder. Step6 Install your old key cylinder into the new ignition switch assembly. Make sure the contacts in the cylinder and assembly line up. Reattach wiring to ignition switch, slide it into place, screw in mounting screws and reassemble steering wheel and switches.

Turn Signals work intermitently on 2000 Dodge Ram 1500 Pickup


My turn signals worked fine until last night when I ran my battery down and had to get a jump. I realized right away that my turn signals suddenly didn't work. My theory hasn't been tested, but I am going to unhook my battery cables and reconnect again to see if that does anything. If not, I'll check out the steering wheel and that big square thing by the fuses. Thank you for all the posts and I was so happy to find this web page!
