I have a 2001 2500HD and when it first started the lights would go out when you moved the steering column up, now you have to move it up and down to even get them to come on and while driving down the road...


Check the wires that go from the switch to the base of the steering column. There is a braket that the wires can rest on and cause all kinds of problems. I have seen it happen. Not for light but for starting problems

My heater/ac fan dont work then when going down the road hit a bump it comes on for about 5 minutes the goes out also if you turn the steering wheel to the right on a curvy road it will come on turn back...


This sounds like a loose connection to the motor itself. My truck has been doing that lately and I finally figured out the problem only when I starting digging under the dash while the heater was going.

When you turn left or right, the steering column must be tugging on the wiring, and when you hit a bump it's just enough to jar the connection loose. Check where the plug goes directly into the motor...most likely it's under the dash on the passenger side, or on the firewall on the same side, but in the engine compartment. It could also be that your steering column has worn the coating off of the wire and it is shorting out every once in awhile when the exposed wire hits metal.

How can i fix the auto cancel indicator switch on a jaguar xk120


The auto cancel switch is actually just a bump in the steering column that hits the signal lever on the return causing it to turn off the lever. A lot of the times, this little switch or bump breaks. You'll need to remove the top of your steering column cover to get to it

Ac quit running,compressor doesnt run,fan doesnt run,no bad fuses or relays that i can find,replaced controls


It may be your ignition switch. Bang on the bottom of your steering column with the key in the "on" position and see if the fan will fire up. My car is doing the exact same thing right now, but I can basically rub the bottom of the trim under the steering column and it comes on. It will also start when I hit a good bump on the road.

Good luck!

The dome lights are not related, but the high beam problem is the steering column mounted multifunction switch, very common problem, they should recall them.
