#3 of 11 Left turn signal would not work - now fixed
May 18, 2009 (3:57 pm)
Assuming that the switch is wired correctly with the previous problem. Not sure if this helps but I worked on a 99 T&C where the left turn signal would not work at all. Solution was to disconnect the main wiring from the body control module and then reconnect. During my investigation I had found no power coming from the BCM to the switch. As these vans get older, it maybe a requirement to disconnect and reconnect the BCM as corrosion may build up on the connections affecting the signals to the BCM. However caution will be needed when doing this so as not to trigger the air bags.

Yes..it was my multi-function switch that can only be purchased at the dealer. $75.00 for the switch and $127.00 in labor. They have to drop the stearing column down to get to the switch. Hope this helps.

thanks, before I got your reply, I stopped by Autozone and they could order the multi function switch for $50. It be here till tomorrow. They way you make it sound is that I should let a pro install it. I am pretty mechanical but not a pro. Whats your take?

Steve, mine is an 06 that's prob why they don't carry it at Autozone or Advanced. I tried NAPA and they told me it was dealership. They had to drop my steering column to change mine. Your's may not have to...if you can check a book on it's installation or call your dealership they might be able to tell you. I do know alot of stuff goes through that switch.
Good luck with it,

I have a 2005 T & C van 77,000 miles, & the turn signals just started going crazy. sometimes works ok. sometimes not at all & sometimes I turn on the right & the left comes on. Driving me crazy, my mechanic says he never heard of such a thing, & of course it won't do it when he looks at it He thinks maybe I drink a lot, or something. Glad to hear others having same problem. Now, just to get it fixed ???

I have the same issue with the left turn signal not working. Now, i work on cars, but right now my brain is frozen on what a BCM is.
Also, I have already replaced my turn signal switch and when I took the cover off i found a plug that was not plugged in to the socket on the steering wheel. AS I have no idea what it goes to, I have not plugged it in. Any ideas?

You need to replace the multi-function switch. Cost is $87 (August 2012) from dealer, or at 1aauto.com, they also have a simple video on how to do it. Don't need to drop the Column. Disconnect the negative battery terminal though before working on it. 2006 T&C LX
