CHEVY DASHBOARD LIGHTS/TURN SIGNAL FLASHERS

1997 Chevrolet Lumina

Electrical problem
1997 Chevy Lumina 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 180000 miles

How do I fix or replace the lights on my dashboard, and my turn signal lights work when they feel like it along with my emergency flashers. Someone told me that I had to replace the steering wheel column to fix it. When I want to turn left I have to hold down the blinker shaft but not if I want to turn right that one still clicks and holds itself in place.

As far as the turn signals, I can tell you that the turn signal switch needs to be replaced. The steering wheel has to come off to replace the switch and you have to have a tool for that.

The dashboard lights can be replaced if needed, I went to replace my dashboard lights and they were fine, so you might want to check the fuse and the main circuit breaker first.
