Starter on truck is not starting truck


There are safety switches on the brake pedal lever(automatic) or clutch pedal lever(stick) depending on year. What usually happens is that your feet bump or break the switch and you lose the starter pulse. This switch is suppose to prevent "runaway" vehicles by insuring that your foot is on the brake pedal or clutch when you use the starter. Look under the drivers dash on the brake or clutch lever.

There can also be another switch on some models that is for safety and insures the gearshift is in Park. Finally, some ignition switches have adjustments where they attach to the steering column. The ignition switch has slots which allow the adjustment.

The loss of your signal to the starter relay can be verified by using a Voltmeter on the small wire of the starter relay, then backtrace the above switches to restore the signal.

Diagrams are on the Web by doing a search specific for the year, make, and model followed by which part you want to find. (example -fusepanel or powerbox)

Steering wheel stuck and key wont turn


One of the things is a lock-out switch on the brake pedal lever. Some are coordinated with the gearshift, the Keyswitch, and the starter Relay. Check to see if the brake lights work when you press on the brake pedal. If no signal is going to the brake lights, then there is a chance that the Park shift lever, the steering wheel and the Keyswitch are bound up.

Sometimes a steering wheel is at the extreme reach of the travel in the front suspension. This can sometimes happen in cold weather when the car is sitting on ice or snow. When the ice or snow melts, the front tires settle into a position that puts pressure on the steering wheel and loads Torque up the steering column. Another possibility is that the car was bumped in the Parking lot and jammed into a position creating Torque on the steering column.

Last, the tumbler inside the Keyswitch could have fallen apart and that is why the mechanism is not releasing the steering wheel.

There are adjustments in the Keyswitch to be at the correct position to work with the lockout at the bottom of the steering column.

I have a 1990 Chevy Suburban v1500. All lights work except for the Brake Lights and Turn Signals. The Blinker switch on steering column is broken, other than that everything is fine.


Yes, the brake light signal on American cars is routed through the turn signal switch. A new switch should restore both your turns and your brake lights.
American cars use the same bulb filament and same wire to the rears for both brakes and turns. Press the brakes when turning and both rear brakes will light, but since one side travels through the flasher relay, that side will blink, while the other side has a steady light.

  4. Remove the shrouds from the steering column.
  5. Disconnect the brake lamp switch and the master cylinder pushrod from the brake pedal.
  6. Rotate the clutch quadrant forward and unhook the clutch cable from the quadrant. Allow the quadrant to slowly swing rearward.
  7. Remove the bolt holding the brake pedal support bracket lateral brace to the left side of the vehicle.
  8. Disconnect all electrical connectors from the steering column.
  9. Remove the 4 nuts that hold the steering column to the brake pedal support bracket and lower the steering column to the floor.

Where is the turn signal relay?


he Flasher Relay for the 98 Lumina Sedan, (and all 97-03 GM W-Body�s,) is located under the dash! It's directly above the Brake Pedal. It's a ways up there! When you look up there you'll see where the steering column passes through the firewall, and a lot of wires in that area. You'll need to carefully make your way through the wires, it was easier for me to fit my hand through the passenger side if the column. There's another cluster of wires above them, where I found it! The Flasher Relay is a rectangle approximately 1"x1"x1.5". You'll just have to reach in and feel for it!
The Flasher Relay controls the Turn Signals as well as the Hazards. You may experience that one or the other is not working, most likely meaning that it's just loose, rather than broken. Try tightening it before replacing it!
Good luck and thank you for using Fixya
