robin gibson: i am impressed! A difficult job explained very clearly with excellent visual, thank you!!!!!!!
you2bertoo: Did not do this switch but I did the ignition switch on our 97 jimmy. What a pain. I wish I had known about your videos beforehand.
januaryman169: First let me say, this video was a big help. With that said you don't have to pull the steering wheel to change the switch. I was able to get to both torx screws on the switch without removing the wheel.
Stevie Wonder: I recently replaced my idler/ pitman arms, and I must have bumped it and my steering wheel if off to the left by a few inches. Can I do this to straighten it back center again? Thanks for the video, and your time.
Jason Haskell: this video was super helpful and your prices for the part were the best I found. Thanks.
jdmab: Just done doing the turn signal on my 96 yukon thanks for the videos they do help
1A Auto Parts: @Robert Germano You may want to double check the switch, and the connections to see if everything's connected correctly. Hope this helps you out. 1aauto.com 866-403-3393
Robert Germano: Great video. I was able to get everything switched out, but when all was said and done, my left front turn signal and radio do not work. Can you provide assistance?
Jeff May: Excellent video. This was very helpful.
Tregeta: My new switch is installed, but i noticed a problem. While on cruise control, occasionally, when i activate the right (and only the right) turn signal it disengages the cruise control. Also not sure if it's related, but about 6 months-1 year later my wipers started working only intermittently and now they only work on high. Related?
marvinblue27: Great instructional video.
santhony74 Stephen Anthony: Do you really need to remove the steering wheel?
cole messick: I have a 1995 chevy 1500 I bought this truck and the guy gave me a new multifunction switch with it. The guy I bought it from tried to replace he but couldn't figure it out. And when he did he never reconnected the cruise control. I replace the switch now according to your video but I can't figure out where is the cruise control wire is supposed to plug into it. I watch the video but it's kind of hard to see. Can you tell me where it's supposed to plug in to. Thanks cole
Kevin Keils: Needed a Multi-function switch for my 2002 GMC Sierra, dealer wanted $790.00 to repair, bought it at 1aauto.com for $87.50 and replaced it in 2.5 hours, thanks for the video and the great price on the part.
1A Auto Parts: @Carlton Witt Thanks for watching. 1aauto.com 888-844-3393
Carlton Witt: Thanks for posting, Mike. It was a big help.
A few comments:
- The hint to twist and pull on the horn wire connector, and the information about the cruise control clip lock, were particularly helpful. There was nothing intuitive about those connections. (On the latter, it would have been helpful to be a trapeze artist contortionist with half-inch fingers.)
- Great idea, using the 4mm socket to deal with the goofy "male Torx heads" that secured the upper portion of the plastic housing.
- My steering wheel came off so hard I was afraid I'd break the puller. I added some penetrating oil and a few moderate hammer taps, then let it sit while I dismantled the rest. Then it finally came loose. For reassembly I put some anti-seize compound on the shaft to make it easier next time.
- Rather than use a socket to remove the top Torx screw that secured the switch, I was able to bend the upper plastic housing a little and stick a regular (screwdriver-like) Torx driver down through the hole for the hazard switch.
All in all, the job was a royal pain -- but it could have been a lot worse without your video. Thanks again!
Captain Fatbeard: I managed to remove the 2 screws of the turn signal switch without removing the steering wheel, but the turn switch wont come out, is necesary to remove the steering wheel o something else? or there is another screw i missed up? or maybe the turn signal lever got stuck with something? any idea?
Ricky Gallagher: Could the multi-function switch be the cause of my brake lights flicking? As I push on the pedal the brake lights work, however, the more I push on the brake pedal I get no brake lights. Replaced brake pedal switch.
Mike Smith: Any chance you can make a video for a 2007 Sierra?
paxdman: Would this work for a 94 GMC safari?
