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.

The turn signals do not blink they just stay on dimly and buzzes...this is left or right.Hazard blinker lights work fine.
right rear signal & brake light not working
signal won't come on, bought new switch and worked for about 5 min. then it quit.
My signal lights aren't working everything else works changed the flasher in fuse box changed my fuses is there another relay under the steering column
Hazards work, but signal lights don't. Have replaced bulbs, flasher, and fuse
there is a known problem with this that the turning lights will flash quickly and then cut out this has to do with the wiring in the steering column and is going to cost around 300.00 to repair does anyone know if they was a recall on this Can I still claim it?
