2000 Pontiac Grand am: flasher..headlamp/wiper lever switch (2nd one)

Customer Question
I have a 2000 Pontiac...
I have a 2000 Pontiac Grand Am GT. I had the 4 way flasher swittch (4th one) replaced along with the headlamp/wiper lever switch (2nd one) today. When I picked the car up the led display in the stero is blank. I checked the 3 fuses for the radio/CD player and they are fine. Is the display hooked into the headlamp switch in the steering column? Mabye that switch is defective? Or is there a quick fix for this problem. All the dash lights, theftlock, and stero lights all work except the time/frequency display.

I was going to try another new headlamp switch today. Apparently the led display onthe stero is wired into the headlamp switch. That's why I think the switch is defective. The display worked with the old switch, but the turn signals kept ticking after they cancelled.
Pontiac Mechanic: GM Tech (Cam), Pontiac Technician replied 7 years ago
It is likely. The switch is common for the contacts inside failing and causing the ticking noise. just be sure to check the wiring and pins carefully that plug into the switch.
