Was there nything that lead up to this? or just started doing this one day?

Hart

Customer: replied 6 years ago.
Just started it one day.
Expert:  RD replied 6 years ago.

HI

I have a tech trying to duplicate the problom. as soon as i have something ill let you know!

Hart

Customer: replied 6 years ago.
Thanks alot. Bill
Expert:  RD replied 6 years ago.

Bill

I feel we found our problom.

does the van have tilt wheel?

Hart

 

Customer: replied 6 years ago.
yes
Expert:  RD replied 6 years ago.

Ok

were the wiring connects to the turn signal switch, trace this back to where it swivels at the tilt,

this area you might find a brake in the wiring, if you go down past there you might see where it got rubbed on the brake peddle or on the shift lever swivel

 

let me know if you find something

Hart

 

Customer: replied 6 years ago.
I have checked this. It was ok. I did notice Saturday that when I have the 4 way flasher on and turn the signals on, whichever side I turn on does not affect the whole rear side. It only makes the light on the side I turn the signal to go out and stop flashing. On most cars when you turn on 4 ways and hit brake rear brake lights come on anyway. Does this help?
Expert:  RD replied 6 years ago.

Hello

Here is a blow up of the relay panel

i would check the wiring here for possibly a loose wire or a wire damaged from moister if you remove the screws you can flip the panel over to see the back side

Customer: replied 6 years ago.
Checked all these and they are fine. checked at bcm also. really at wits end by now.
Expert:  RD replied 6 years ago.

Hello

were does the power stop at if everything we have looked at is good?

thanks

steve

Customer: replied 6 years ago.
I repaired problem by replacing ignition switch. This fixed it all.
Expert:  RD replied 6 years ago.

Hello

was it a power or grounding problom?

thanks

Hart

Customer: replied 6 years ago.
It was power at ignition switch to signal switch.
Expert:  RD replied 6 years ago.

Hello

Interesting

what did not work besides the turn signals?

Hart

Customer: replied 6 years ago.
heater blower motor.
Expert:  RD replied 6 years ago.

Hello

Im sorry i must have missed that when we were communicating the problom.

I hope i can help you the next time you have a question

Hart

Customer: replied 6 years ago.
Thanks. I will request you when I have a Chrysler problem. Bill
Expert:  RD replied 6 years ago.
