Check your fuses relative to the operations mentioned first. Could be a short someplace.

No brake light,no turn signals , no flasher lights...I have checked fuses for each and they are OK. Also all bulbs are OK. Any suggestions.


Hi!!
Your multifunction switch may be defective. Replace it. $39.99 at AutoZone
  • Combination switches operate wipers, directionals, horn, headlights and dimmers.
  • When not replaced, wipers, directionals, horn, headlights and dimmer, independently or as a group, will not function or turn off potentially causing safety issues.

Windshield wiper and turn signals don't work.


I have seen this problem several times and it was the assembly under the steering wheel at the top of the steering column. There are many electrical connections in there for turn signals, wipers, horn, headlight dimmer, etc. The electrical contacts could be dirty and not conducting current or they could be misalligned or broken or just plain worn out.

If you're up to it, take steering wheel off and take a look. If there is an airbag, and you've never removed one of those, I wouldn't even start -- take it back to the shop and tell them what you suspect the problem to be.

Multiple electrical issues


Check all fuses and all electrical grounds both in the engine compartment and in the dash. A bad ground (loose, corroded, etc) will cause all types of problems. Hope this fixes your problem.

Wont start


Could be an electrical problem. Clean your battery connections. Sounds like you are not getting voltage to the ignition coil. Check fuses. Check if horn, wipers, turn signals are working. Try this test: turn on headlights and then turn ignition key to start. The headlights should dim if the starter solenoid is engaging. You did not mention if it is manual or automatic transmission but most cars have an interlock switch that prevents the car from starting if it is in gear.

Headlight/Turn Signal/Wiper Switch Replace


The turn signal switch requires the steering wheel to be removed, you can borrow a steering wheel puller from most any chain parts store like Kragen or Auto Zone to name a few, always disconnect the battery before starting work, also if you have an airbag on the steering wheel you MUST disarm the system before starting work or serious injury can result if it fires. The screws that retain the airbag or horn pad if present will be on the back side of the steering wheel in wells, about an inch deep, most likely they are #2 Phillips.
