Turn Switch Wiring 97 Chevy Lumina

I am replacing the turn signal switch on my Lumina and don't know which is the wire for the turn signal.Is it a single wire,or a wire harness?The Chilton doesn't say much.
Any help will be appreciated.

If your car is anything like mine, the turn signal switch is held on by like 3 screws and a wire connector. I don't think there are individual wires. The switch is the actual handle that you move up and down.

97 Lumina turn signal switch

I've been looking into replacing the switch on my son's 97 Lumina sedan as well. I've found the part online at autozone here: http://************/yrzh58
but I haven't gotten up the nerve to "go in."

This part is a bracket that includes the switch and wiring harness. The harness runs alongside the steering column and goes to a connector that is just to the right of the column behind the knee panel. There are different versions of this part, with or without steering wheel mounted controls seems to be the most common choice.

Are you aware that you are going to have to remove the airbag to replace this component? This is a dangerous affair, as they are sometimes known to go off (without warning) during the disassembly process. I have looked up the process in AllData and they are very adamant about following the process to remove the air bag, how to carry it and how to store it while it is off the steering wheel. I would suggest that you check into AllData and their documentation.

If you do try this out, please do a bit of Knowledge Sharing and let me know what you did and how it went. I can't see paying over $100/hour to a stealership to replace a part on a car that is essentially a "beater" for my kid.

thanks, and good luck!

get 2 pullers

I did one a few years ago. I bought the haynes book and followed the directions. It took about 30 minutes. I remember getting 2 pullers to do the job. One takes off the wheel and another pushes back a plate so you can take off a snap ring.

I think more inportant than taking the airt bag off is putting it back on correctly so it works if needed.

this link is not for a lumina but it gives you a better how to than haynes

i know corsica and beretta columns were interchangable so these instructions should be that far off
