Verifying steering column harness..

Trying to get my turn signals 'online' so I can save on some towing costs..and I really want to drive this thing


I verified 12V at the 14BRN coming from the main harness to the steering column connector.

How can I determine if the column harness or directional switch is bad?
Any way I can jumper, or measure resistence across the column side?

Front end was completely apart, plus this car had been worked on by a sloppy mechanic..not sure if that the cause, or my problems lie elsewhere. Signals had worked prior my teardown.

Dashboard lights have been replaced and function (brake, illum) and fuel gauge also works, so that part should be ok.

Parking and tail lights work..front and rear harnesses are new and work otherwise. Fuse is ok, both flasher units are installed...

Ohh, my hazard knob is broken off, so I cant test that, and the horn never worked...

thanks in advance

Your last statement I think says it all. If the hazard switch is on, then the turn signals are disconnected at the turn signal switch. Try to turn the hazards off and see if the T/S work.

Re: Verifying steering column harness..

Thanks Larry! Makes sense...

I cant quite tell if the hazard switch is on or not....pretty jammed up...

I removed my steering wheel, and have the switch almost out...having c-clip issues which should be resolved today. I was planning on pulling this anyway since the right turn signal cant be manually turned off.

Most likely replace the harness/switch

Yup, this thing is a mess...
