i had a new turn signal switch installed a couple months ago and they put a new turn signal wire in and it worked great for about two months, now I drove to the shore three hours away from home and they don't work. brake light and hazards are not working as well. what is the problem and is there a QUICK FIX. THIS IS DANGEROUS AND NOT DRIVING WITH BRAKE LIGHTS

It has happened. The way I fix it is I turn the 4 way flashers on and they suddenly work. Pontiac is KNOWN for electrical problems.
my turn signal & hazards do not work
Turn signals work off and on....just started doing this
smoke came from the steering column and since then the bake lights do not work. have tried the brake light switch and that wasnt it. does anyone have any ideas? my next thing was the headlight swich.

I'm having problems with my brake lights not working due to a combination switch that's works my turn signal on my 2000 Pontiac grand prix. Already replace one now need another one. Anyone one else having this problem . Was this a recall. Should have been.

I was driving today and my turn signals worked just fine. I pulled into the gas station to fill up and when I went to leave, they all of a sudden quit working. I am not sure what the problem is. I am just now looking into this problem.

Turn signal both back and front, both sides stopped working a few weeks ago. Booked appt with mechanic and then night before scheduled to go in, they worked again, so didn't go. Two weeks later now, they are intermittently working when they want again. Called dealer where bought the vehicle, told not a recall item, and would cost us for them to find the problem. Called Canada dealer head office as we live here and bought the vehicle here and awaiting follow up. As this appears to be a larger problem for many and not a cosmetic factor, think Pontiac head office ought to be responsible for fixing this, especially being a safety issue.
No high or lowbeams parking lights and signals work new headlights and multi switch not sure what the issue is
my turn signals go out just a day after I get the bulb changed, and blink really fast.
hazards work, turn signals dont, brake and tail lights are fine. *knock on wood just that* replaced the assembly, checked the fuses... ive just written it off as a lemon.
