Are you sure you have the correct switches?,like in the bathroom you would have an on/off type of switch,as to for a living room you'd have a switch that turns on the lights when coming in,then a switch at the other end that'd turn the light off. These kind of switches require special wire connections;look it up on-line or ask someone at a lighting store,I'm sure they'd help/draw you how to connect.

My turn signals sometimes will quit working then I have to hit the hazard lights button leave it on and then turn my turn signals on then they work what causes this to happen


When the turn signals quit working pull up , down , front to back an back to front on the turn signal switch handle . Do they work when doing this ? Pontiac had bad switch . The power for the turn signals goes through the flasher / hazard module . Could be the switch or the module.
The HAZARD LPS fuse in the left hand instrument panel (LH IP) junction block supplies battery positive voltage to the flasher module, which is part of the hazard switch assembly. The TURN LPS fuse in the LH IP junction block supplies ignition positive voltage to the flasher module. The turn signal lamps may only be activated with the ignition switch in the ON position. When the turn signal switch is placed in either the left or right position, current flow is from the flasher module's output to the turn signal switch assembly. The flasher module then sends an on-off voltage signal to either the left or right turn signals and their instrument panel cluster (IPC) indicator. When the hazard switch is pressed, all the turn signal lamps will flash including both IPC turn signal indicators.

Fix light chek air suspenssion


Have you disconnected the battery to reset the computer? That would be my first step. If that doesn't work, go to an auto supply (Auto Zone) and have them check for codes. Ask them to clear the codes.

Speedo not working when lights are on


you probably have your instrument panel dimmer turned off or all the way down. When the lights are off it assumes it's daytime and your instrument lights are turned all the way up. When you turn your lights on the instrument lights dim to the setting on the dimmer. Some dimmers when you turn them all the way down, click to an off position, or when all the way down look like they're off.

Only Rt turn signal works no matter if switch is in Lt or Rt position


The multi-function switch could be defective. The L/R position signals go to the instrument cluster then they are bussed on computer data lines to the front control module to develop the outputs that light the turn lamps. The defect could be in the instrument cluster, the front control module, or even the PCM

Hi: I have a 1998 Chevy Blazer 4.3 The brake lights and turn signals don't work.... HELP


Sounds like you have a bad multiple function turn signal switch. A couple things to try With your foot pressing on the brake pedal, Press the four way flasher button up and down, press and hold it down, pull up on it, or wiggle it. If the brake lights come on during any one of those replace the switch. With the key in the run position pull, push, the turn signal lever slightly. If the turn signal or brake lights start to work replace the switch. Let me know if none of those work, they usually do, and I'll get you some more in depth diagnostic info.
