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

    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.

    had to replace cobination switch and now the new one is doing the same thing. Unable to turn lights on unless you pull the switch forward.

    turn signals work sporadically. Replaced the flasher and did not fix, now going to replace the switch and hope that fixes it.
