Question about 2000 Chevrolet Impala

1 Answer

Need to find where the multiswitch is in the steer column and how to get at it

Our right signal light is gone. We of course replace the bulb - nope. Then we spent $100 on a hazard switch which we thought would fix the problem - nope - and it is non-refundable. So the only thing left is the mutiswitch in the steering column but unfortunately the Haynes repair book is not very descriptive. Anyone ever change this themselves - if so how and where is it exactly?

The "multi " refers to cruise, wipers, signal and hi/low beams. the multi switch is your signal light switch. (they are $500) Can get one at 1aauto.com $118 - just bought one but not in yet

Turn signals dont work.but the hazards wirk.on a 04 aztek


the Hazards and blinkers are usually on different circuits. gotta start at the basics work your way through the system. Check your fuse panel, might as well check all your fuses and replace all blown fuses. if you don't find a blown fuse then I would check the bulbs, if they are the same bulds as the Hazards then you know there good. then I would check for power at the Multiswitch ,the multiswitch is the blinker, cruise control, wiper switch usually on the left side of the steering wheel. if you have power at the switch then replace the multiswitch.

1987 ford ranger turn signals keep blowing fuses. have changed flasher fuse and switch on column. just keeps blowing?


first thing i guess to understand what is going on here ,is a little back to basics on how turnsignals work , first item you have is power fuse then it's off to flasher module than it goes to the turnsignal switch on colum ,of course anywhere on it way to there the power could got to ground and cause the fuse to trip, now the power depending on Left or right selection , is directed to lights on both front and back of truck,thankfully rangers don't have em on the side) now any place in this pathway the wire could go to ground and blow the fuse, now to troubleshoot and narrow down the area that fault is located , (1) replace fuse with correct size and ck for proper fit in fusebox and start and operate truck for a few minutes DO not use turnsignals, ck fuse is it still good if so go to step 2 if not stop and ck wire conditions in steering colum and switch(2) start truck and try right hand turn signal only verify lights working ,Ok yes/no if not replace fuse and try left side same way, Ok yes /no if right or left side only blows fuses take ALL bulbS OUT of lights and try again , if fuse still blows then look for wire fault on that side of truck if fuse is still good then look carefull at light bulb sockets for rust and powered corrosion (ill bet an 87 has some ) you may need to replace bulb sockets , they do sell em in autoparts stores .

1999 buick lesabre my right signal doesnt blink it stays solid , my left turn signal blinks fine i have to manually blink the right side every turn , i put the hazard lights on and the front left and right...


The easiest thing for you to do would be to replace the bulbs that are on that circuit. You should have one or two bulbs with a double filament, one for the brake and turn signal and one for the tail light.
If that does not fix the problem, someone will need to check the circuit for power from the turn signal switch. It takes all of the lights on one side to make the turn signal flash.

The turn signal does not work sometimes. Could this be caused by a bad switch or something in the steering column?


If you have a bad bulb, the signal will flash fast on the side that has the bad bulb.
If you have no turn signals or hazard lights, you probably have a bad turn signal/flasher relay
Less commonly you could have a turn signal switch or steering column issue, but I'm thinking its the turn signal relay...they are usually plugged right into the cars fuse box and pretty easy to replace.

No signal lights at all and no emergency flashers


you need to check the "combination turn signal/hazard flasher/daytime running lights module"
it is located in the junction block,the junction block is adjacent to and left of the steering column,you need to remove the lower dash panel below the steering column,then remove the steel knee brace.

My signal lights don't work on my 99 nissan Maxima


If neither your left or your right turn signals work, then it's most likely your electronic flasher unit that has gone bad. It's located under your dash near your steering column and will be labeled

I need to locate and replace the multi function switch


My turn signal flasher was located to the right of the ash tray, I looked around the column for HOURS and it wasn't there... I also have an 93 oldsmobile cutlass ciera, it drove me crazy because the manual wasn't correct.

Both headlights and signal lights all of a sudden not working. have checked fuses already they are all good ?


You won't like the answer, but the most likely culprit is the multiswitch (Turn signal and dim/bright) on the steering column. If you have a set of jumper wires and a diagram for the light system you can jump across the switch and check to see if the lights work. If they do, then you'll have to replace the switch. Best place to find one is in a junk yard specilalizing in Dodges...


Good Luck
