That is the valet light ( I believe that is the name of it). It is basically dealing with how you car can be locked and unlocked. There is a switch that should be under it (hidden somewhat) where you can flick to different positions. You can turn it off by putting the key in a certain position and flick the switch. It should be in the manual because I have done it a couple of times but had to follow the instructoins in the manual.

I have a 2002 and it is my security system. It shuts off when I start it.

Press the small button under the dash, by the steering column, with the ignition on. If the tires are properly inflated, the light should go off immediately.

A small red light to the left of the steering wheel on a 1994 explorer is an indicator for the headlamps. This light lets the driver know that the headlamps are on.

Remove the lower dash panel and steering column cover. Disconnect all harnesses going to the column. There is a metal bracket attached to the steering column with brass-colored bolts, and attached to the underside of the dash with chrome-colored bolts. Remove only the chrome bolts. They're fairly long. Once completely removed, the entire steering column will drop slightly. Now pull back the plastic boot from the bottom of the steering column and look for the small bolt securing it in place. I believe it is 11mm. Loosen the bolt only enough for the column to slide out.

disconnect negative battery cable. remove small dash panel under steering column. remove the 2 nuts on either side of column directly under dash. Disconnect harness connections. with hood of vehicle raised, under brake booster the column is secured with a nut and bolt. Inside of vehicle behind brake pedal and under the carpet the column has 4 bolts fastened to firewall. to keep steering wheel centered be careful not to rotate when column is removed.

should be a small lever (very easy to see) on the left side of the column behind the indicator, pull it towards you and adjust the tilt.

If you're talking about the brake light staying on, it may be either the small plastic button that pushes on the brake light switch on the brake pedal, or the brake light switch itself. If you're talking about taillights only, it may possibly be the light switch on the steering column that has gone bad and needs replacing.

If you are losing fluid, you need to find out where it is going. Usually it is pretty easy to find most leaks: out of the seals on the pump, out of the lines or cooler, out of the steering gear, or out of the rack and pinion. Sometimes you'll have to poke a small hole in the rubber boot on the rack and watch for fluid coming out. Your steering column wouldn't be the problem. Hope this helps.

There is a small, round, black button to the left of the steering column down low on the dash.

Alvan McGee says, On your Camry there is a small compartment door,on the lower dash, to the left of the steering column.Open it and then squeeze the sides to remove it.Behind that,you find the 15 amp lighter/radio fuse with others in the array.

I have a 95 Tracker as well and recently it turned 100,000 miles. At 100,001 the "check engine light" came on. A local mechanic did a diagnostic and it also didn't give any codes to help reset the light or alert me of a problem. I asked him about the reset "switch" under the dash and he said he never heard of that. I investigated on my own when I got home, because the light being on was driving me crazy, and there actually is a small switch that reset the light. I removed the small plastic panel under the steering column and found it between the drivers side speaker and the steering column. It is really small. It is a black plastic switch with a metal face plate. You really have to look for it because it's settled in with the wire harness' under the dash. I flipped the switch and the light went out. Again be patient when looking for the switch. It's there you just have to look close to the dash and next to the steering column. I tried removing the battery cables because I read that that would reset the light but had no luck doing it no matter how long I left them off.

You do have to take the steering column loose and drop it down so you can get your hand up to the small clip that holds the brake booster rod off. But you do not have to take it all the way out. Just drop it down.

I checked the owners manual and this indicates that there is rear light failure.

The turn signal flasher on a 1975 Oldsmobile Delta 88 is located in the steering column. There is a small door panel on the underside of the steering column that is held on by clips. Both the turn signal flasher and the hazard flasher are located here.

I just had the switch replaced in my 1996 Silverado. They had to disconnect the steering column from the dash to get at the switch. I changed mine on a 1998 3500 in about 10 minutes, brake switch is located on top of steering column, between brake linkage and dash, pop off the black clip with a small screwdriver, disconnect electrical plug and reverse installation.

Its on the bottom center console on the passenger side. Heck, its cover with a TAN rubber cover that blends in with the tan plastic no wonder I was having a hard time finding it. thank you all.

The ignition module is not on the steering column. The module should be located on the distributor, on the outside, right below the cap. There should be a plug with a bunch of wires going to it. You will need a special tool to remove the small scews that hold it on.

Under the dashboard driver's side near steering column. If not readily visible, it will be located behind a small removable panel.

(1)Remove the steering wheel, steering column cover and steering column shrouds; (2) turn the steering lock to the On position; (3)insert a 1/8" diameter wire, punch or small screwdriver into the lock cylinder housing and release the actuator pin while pulling on the cylinder. Installation is the reverse of the removal steps. - Mazda Pickups Repair Manual
