Turn Signal Switch May Fail and Cause Signals Not To Work

The turn signal switch in the steering column may fail causing the turn signals not to work on one or both sides.

A door window may move slowly or stop in mid travel due to a failing power window motor. The affected window may start working again after the motor cools off. Replacing the faulty window motor will commonly correct this concern.
