Front right and back right turn signal wont work but the front left and back left do


first check the bulbs on that side by visual or changing to the other side if you can't see that well if the bulbs from the front and back work or are good when checked the flasher has blown out on one side and you have to replace it other possible cause could be a broken wire for the right side lights so look at the connectors for that side front & back if all is good one more thing could do this the actual turn signal lever that you use to activate the signals could be bad for the right side especially if it does not go back to the normal position after making a turn and the steering wheel rotates back to it's normal position but the turn signal lever does not click back to the center position this would burn out that side from the signal constantly being on good luck stephen

What causes my right turn signal to not work? Front or back!


Your worst fears are my guess. The multifunction switch has a problem and needs attention. Might not be the switch assembly, could be just a wire or the body control module. It sounds like you can easily reproduce the symptom, so a competent tech should be able to narrow down the cause quickly. A decent mechanic could fix it in an hour or two. 25316080-dz1fkxf1fwolart5ai0divhk-5-0.jpg

Truck doesnt want to stop when I have the steering whell canked all the way?


there must be a vacuum leak in your brake master. try pumping the brake pedal several times every time you make a full turn of steering wheel. if this fixes your braking problem, then replace CHECK VALVE hose in your brake master.

Turn Signal Switch, Replace'' procedure.


Instructions
  1. Removing the Turn Signal Switch
    • Disconnect the negative power cable on the battery. The battery needs to be isolated while working on the electrical system.
    • 2Remove the steering column shroud with a Phillips-head screwdriver. The shroud will come off in two pieces. One will come off from the top and the other will come off from the bottom.
    • 3Pull the turn signal lever out while twisting it forward. The lever is connected to the multi-switch.
    • 4Remove the wiring harness running in back of the multi-switch. Place the wiring out of the way so you can remove the switch,
    • 5Unscrew the switch with a Phillips-head screwdriver. The switch will come out once the screws have been removed.
    Installing the New Switch
    • 6Install the new switch. Tighten the screws to hold the switch securely.
    • 7Attach the wiring harness back to the switch. The harness should plug into the switch. Push the harness connector into the switch until it clicks into place.
    • 8Install the turn signal lever. Push in and twist it back toward the dash to lock it in place.
    • 9Place the steering column shroud back on the steering column. Be sure to tighten the screws to position the shroud in place.
    • 10Reconnect the battery. Crank your Blazer to test out the switch. Attempt to run everything on the switch to ensure you have a good multi-switch.

I have to hold the lever up for right turn flash or hold it down for left turn flash.if i dont put pressure on lever light stays on but wont flash


It's time to replace the blinker switch. You don't say what year it is but it's not a real hard job. Remove the steering wheel. You need a puller for that, which you can buy for about $35 or maybe rent or borrow. It's a multi use puller. Attach it to the wheel and tighten the middle bolt. As it gets tight give it a sharp rap with a hammer and tighten some more, Repeat until the whel comes off. Get a piece of broom stick that you can place between your shoulder and the locking plate and lean on it. This gives you both hands to remove the circlip that holds it on. Release the plate slowly, there is a heavy spring behind it and you could get a face full of plate if you're not careful. With the plate out of the way the turn signal switch is right there. You will have to remove the cover off the bottom of the dash under the column and undo the 2 bolts that mount the column to the dash. This will let you unplug the wire harness and carefully and slowly pull it up out of the column. Feed the new harness back down ( occasionally cursing and retrying are part of this process), plug it in and screw it back on on top. Put everything back in the reverse of how you took it out.
If you have a multifunction switch, the handle normally pulls out, it's got a spring loaded catch. If you have just a plain blinker switch the handle is attached with screws inside the column. Hope this helps.

I Think your turn signal switch is most probably faulty. So that, you will need to replace it. Please, check the video below. It shows the operations to replace the turn signal switch. I think that the operations are quite similar in most modern cars. Good luck!

2000 Lumina All fuses good, no Brake or turn signal lights, even on the dash, flasher unit checks good but no power to it. Any ideas out there?


Will your Center High-Mount Stop Light (CHMSL) illuminate when you depress the brake pedal, but the lower/outer lights will not?
-- Do you have to hold the signal lever in a certain spot to get the turn signals to flash?
-- Do you have to hold the signal lever in a certain spot to get the lower/outer brake lights to illuminate?
-- Will the signals work in one direction, but not the other?
If you answered yes to any of the preceeding questions, your turn signal switch is likely malfunctioning.

**One more question before we continue: Is the turn signal lever not "cancelling" (returning to the "off" position) after you make a turn? If this is the case, you have a broken "cancelling spring."


Before you begin disassembly of your steering column, verify the turn signal flasher is not malfunctioning. If your brake lights work fine, but not the signals (either direction,) then it's likely the flasher is burnt out. The flasher itself is located underneath the dash near where the steering column passes through the firewall

Intermittent clicking sound


This is a fairly common problem on the '04 Grand Am.  I recently fixed the problem on mine.  The problem is in the contacts inside the multifunction switch which is comprised of the turn signal lever and windshield wiper level.  If you remove the plastic covering around the stearing wheel (simple just a few hex head screws) you can see the multifunction switch directly ontop of the steering column.  Remove the screw holding it in place and disconnect the several wires in the back.  The whole unit will come right out, you can take in your house and fix the rest.  If you open it up - there several screws required to do this - you will see copper contacts where the turn signal lever touches to indicate its position (left right or off).  Clean this off well with a damp paper towel to remove the grease and reapply some dielectric grease to the contacts.  Put everything back together and you should be click-free!  The problem seems to be that over time the contacts wear down and arching can occur between the contacts, thus confusing your turn signal clicker and allowing it to click at random times.  Cleaning it out gets rid of any metal fragments in the grease and the new grease will act to prevent the arching.
