Is headlight switch or high beam on steering column? Some time wire breaks in insulation so when you tilt and the broken wires touch and when you go opposite way the copper wires have an open and no lights
Usually this is caused by using the steering wheel to pull yourself into the cab of your truck. Unfortunately this is not a simple fix. The steering column has to be dismantled to replace the broken dawg that engages the slots within the column.
Hi Ruben, You would help us by telling us what vehicle it is you're inquiring about? The circuits for the controls built into the steering wheel are usually carried in a special cassette which has all the cables molded into a flat Teflon strip. It's located inside the steering wheel and accessed by removing the steering wheel. It is not uncommon for the unit to become defective, folding at the end and breaking the cables inside and causing an open circuit in the operations of the the touch operations. The cables cannot be repaired, meaning that the unit should be replaced. Regards John
Hi Shannon, befor you dive in and replace the indicator switch I would suggest you check the flasher unit. To replace the indicator switch you will need to remove the steering wheel (this usually means using a puller) Don't forget to punch match marks on the steering wheel and the column which must be aligned when assembling. Remove the steering wheel center cover. then the covers on the steering column Removed the screws (usually four) holding the stalk switch. don't forget to disconnect the battery and the wiring connection to the stalk switch. After replacing the assembly is opposite.to dismantling. Regards John
First do you have a sterring wheel puller. Can't remove the steering wheel without one. Quite an involved job including snaking the electrical connector end through the steering column. I wouldn't recommend it to the novice
disconect the batteri first wait for a few seconds turn on the radio see if it comes on if it dose not go ahead with the work also take the fuse for the air bags of when your done put back the fuse and then reconect the baterie post
1)First dismantle the batteryleads to avoid electric hazard.
2)Dismantle the steering wheel by taking the centre cover of with a screwdriver carefully,and then take the wires of the centre cover to the horn, loosen the nut 24mm in the middle but dont at first take it off, then wobble,and pull the steering wheel towards your self till it loosens, then dismantle the nut and take the steering wheel off.
3)Unsrew the 2 srews in the undercover and take the upper and undercover off.
4)dismantle the 2 or 3 screws (depending on model) pointing towards you, holding the wiper and blink contacts, dismantle the electric cable connections from the contacts and then remove the contacts from the casing.
5) remove the bolt in the housing (aluminium) holding the ignitionswitch, located from down without a head, needs a hammer and a chisel, can be hard to loosen.
6) turn the key clockwise so it pulls back the slot from the steering axel.
7) remove the electrical cables from the ignition switch.
8) pull the aluminium housing toward yourself sliding it upwards
9) exchange the lock,casing and electrical bottom piece all together and insert a new bolt in the aluminium housing
10) reverse to install
