Where is the 1999 Jeep Wrangler flasher?

They are right on top of the steering column. They push to the left to engage them.

When you push the brakes there is a clicking in the steering column on a 2001 ford escape?

The 2001 Escape, with the gear shifter on the steering column, has an interlock solenoid located by the shifter assembly. The purpose is to lock the shifter in PARK until you depress the brake pedal. This is to prevent "sudden acceleration" where you engage the transmission with the brake off and the car shoots forward or backward. When you press the brake pedal a switch is closed that turns on the break lights and activates the solenoid, generating a magnetic field that withdraws the interlock pin, allowing you to move the shifter out of Park and into Drive or Reverse. The solenoid can make a clicking noise. We never noticed the clicking sound in our 2001 Escape until this mechanism had begun to fail, locking the shifter in Park regardless of the position of the brake pedal.

How do you get the key to turn for a 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo if it is locked into place?

sometimes if you parked with wheels not straight the steering lock will engage and be tight in the steering column if this is the problem, just move the steering wheel a bit so it frees up a little it will only move one way if this is the cause then while holding steering wheel away from where it was, see if key will turn if this doesnt work, get a steering column specialist to come out and fix ignition

Why is it that when you turn the steering wheel it presses the brakes?

Does it actually engage the brakes, or just the brake lights? There should be no possible way for the steering wheel to actuate the braking system, but a short in the wiring somewhere in the steering column could be causing both rear signal lights or brake lights to come on.

How do you engage the 4 wheel drive on a 1993 jeep Cherokee?

if you have to ask this then I would have to guess that your Cherokee is NOT a 4wd model...otherwise the 4wd SHIFTER right beside the regular shifter would be a very obvious clueon how to do this. If what you mean is exactly how and "when can you" then you can engage 4hi at any time moving or stopped but to engage 4low you need to be stopped completely and in neutral. same answers for going back to 2wd.

Check for broken vacuum lines to the front axle shifter.

Why don't a 95 jeep engage into any gear?

first most obvious, make sure the transfer case is not in neutral. If the shifter is stuck in one position you can access the floor panel over the shifter, then remove the shifter, sometimes when worn or loose they can become stuck and you can fix it by lifting the shifter out of the trans. Lastly, and you would probably already suspect this, the clutch is gone, but you would have had a lot of issues and slippage leading up to a complete failure.

How do you shift a 1939 Indian motorcycle?

Release the throttle and engage the foot shift to engage the clutch. next grab the shifter and slowly push the gear forward into first. The next 3 gears and straight back on the shifter. The 1939 Indian Scout has a 3 speed transmission. When shifting from 1st to 2nd please do the same as shifting into first gear. That's it. The slower the rpms on the motor the easier it will go into gear.

94 beretta and the low beams work fine but your high beams dont work at all you replaced a plastic part inside the steering wheel but it didnt work what could it be?

Which plastic part inside the steering wheel did you replace? The turn signal switch? High/Low beams are controlled by a small switch mounted to the left side of the steering column. You may need to adjust it properly, so that the metal rod comes in contact with the switch, and pushes it far enough to engage (but not too far to bottom out).

95 Blazer will not start Worked once by moving shifter around .?

Sounds to me like the neutral safety switch may be the culptrip. Not exactly sure where it is. Is this a floor shift or column shift? Will the engine try to start? in other words, does the starter engage? If not, then I would suspect the neutral safety switch. If the starter engages, but the engine won't start, then probably another issue.

What would cause the starter to engage with out the key when you push in the clutch on a 95 escort LX?

I've had the same issue, It's a bad ignition switch, replace the ignition switch and you should be good to go. P.S. the ignition switch is located under the steering column, it's held in by 2 screws, but it can be a hassle to remove.
