Thread: New turn signal switch

    New turn signal switch

    The cancel on my right turn signal quit working. I ordered a new switch off e-bay and installed it today. I took off the steering wheel and confirmed that the old part (installed in 2012, darn it) was broken.

    I tried pushing the wires on the new part down the steering column without much success. I then plugged the wire terminals into a 2 1/2-foot length of plastic water-supply hose for an ice maker and then pushed the hose down the steering column and then through the insulation sleeve. It worked great!

    I tested the parking lights, backup lights, brake lights and turn signals and horn and they all worked. Yaaaaay!

    They just don't make 'em like they used to. Good tip on the hose!
