How do you check the voltage of the dimmer switch in a 1992 Chevy Lumina and is it hard to replace?
I believe it is within the turn signal wand. I have replaced a few of these on other GM cars. Not that hard to do. If pulling the switch towards you does not activate the dimmer, then the switch is most likely shot.You will need: steering wheel puller, basic metric/sae socket set, torx screw drivers tx15, tx20. Now disconnect neg on battery, disable yellow connection for AIRBAG, remove trim around horn,loosen nut on center of steering wheel,pull wheel with puller. Now you should be able to see switch assembly, remove the torx fasteners and unplug the harness and then feed the wire harness thru the column, tilt wheel as necessary. I get parts like this at a salvage yard cause you can get the entire column with parts for about 75.00 plus you can practice on the workbench vs on your car.Reverse the procedure. Be sure you disable the air bag yellow harness near column under dash. Good luck, I hope this helps you.
The brights on your 92 Chevy lumina euro do not turn on at all you've checked the bulbs and they seem to be in like new condition they worked once or twice before but then seemed to stop working?
The problem is most likely in the dimmer switch. Un plug the wire to the bulb and test for voltage with the dimmer switch in the hi beam position. If no voltage, the dimmer switch is faulty. thank you do you know where the dimmer switch is located and how do i go about getting to it is it hard to replace also how do i go about checking the voltage
The dimmer switch is located near the floor on the left side of the steering column. The dimmer switch and ignition switch are secured by the same two screws. The dimmer switch will be the one on top. Loosen and remove the screws, disconnect the wiring harness from the dimmer switch and replace with the new switch, complete the assembly in reverse order.
Answer If the lights work on the flash to pass but do not work otherwise either the switch is bad or the dimmer switch is bad. I just am working on a 1995 Ranger and found the dimmer switch to be bad. I checked the headlight switch and that was good so I found the dimmer switch to be the problem. I jumped the wires after unplugging the dimmer switch and lights come on. Replace…
