#43 of 78 '97 Monte Carlo Hazard Switch removal
Sep 13, 2010 (2:38 pm)
I was wondering if anyone can give me instructions on how to remove the hazard switch on a '97 Monte Carlo (my son just bought, its his first car) . There are no screws under the steering column behind the steering wheel so I know you can't remove the cover that way, the cover looks to be 1 piece and I'm guessing you have to remove the steering wheel(which has the airbag and I've never dealt with that before- don't want that to go off if I'm messing with it!!) and slide the cover off, after somehow removing the ignition key cylinder. The hole for the hazard switch is on top of the steering column, towards the right(passenger) side, just in front of the ignition key cylinder. I've seen all the electrical problems posted here, I just hope he doesn't start having all those problems. Thanks in advance for any and all help, its much appereciated.

I have a 2007 Monte LT, when I use the environmental control system, for say the blower at your feet, face or defrost. The unit doe's the opposite of what you want. Defrost is the vent or at your face, foot and face is defrost, and face is at your feet. Do I need to have something reset? I did disconnect the battery, that didn't do it. Or do I need to bit the bullet and pay the dealer 110bucks to reset it. Help :cry

This can and will apply to most problems I've read here. My 02' LS started acting up recently(lights flashing, relays clicking, AC shutting off, misfires, ABS/traction inop). Being that I'm an Electronics Tech, there's no reason I can't troubleshoot and repair these issues myself. I found that GM doesn't seem to get the Theory behind electrical current flow (the part about- current flows on the surface of the conductor) Paint isn't conductive (unless it's leaded, but it's NOT). First and foremost check all ground connections under the hood(on engine block or body panels) Seems like they're relying on the bolts to make the contact to the chassis, since all ground connections on the body have paint under them. In doing so I've had a few of the problems start functioning again. I haven't got all fixed, but after tomorrow I should have some more info for all you monte's out there.

I have a 2006 monte carlo and here is the list of problems I'am having.
I can start my car without problem when its warm outside or the car is warm already, let it sit overnight it takes around 30 to get it started and keep it started. Once it is started there is clicking noise coming from all within the car. The steering column clicks, the fuse box clicks, the door locks click they stayed unlocked but ifyou lock them they unlock. The lights flash, the windows roll up and down to the clicks as well as the wipers whipping at the speed of the clicks. Whats your diagnosis?

I apologize that you are experiencing a concern with your vehicle. Have you had the vehicle diagnosed for the concerns? How long have the concerns been present? Thank you,

I have been having electrical problems for months. Finally think all is well. Dealer thought it was ignition, then BCM, then hazard switch. They switched out the parts to test, but nothing changed so didn't have to replace parts. Turns out it was ground wires all over the place. Ground in dash took care of turn signal problems and windshield wipers. Getting left on the side of the road when the car just died 4 times was taken care of by fixing a ground in the right front wheel well and fixing a faulty connection in a bundle of wires under the hood just down and to the right of the battery. (sorry I can't be more specific than that.) All the AM radio noise when changing gears, rolling up windows, pulling on headlights and the radio lights delay in coming on disappeared when another ground behind the dash (I think near the hazard switch) was fixed. Plus my key remote started working again. This has been a nightmare but hope that's the end of it.

Check to see if your cooling fans are seized up. Sound like one of the fans is grounding.

Hey everybody I have a 2000 SS and my blinkers and my wipers quit working also my high beams came on when this happened and they won't turn off even with the ignition turned off and the switch off. This all happened during daylight hours. Has anyone had this problem? I'm thinking It's the blinker switch at a cost of a little over 300.00. If this is not true please let me know Thanks
