Steering column check

We determine the serviceability of the steering column switches by checking the correct closure of the contacts at various positions of the levers

Remove the switches for testing and connect a 12 volt test lamp with a current source or a tester with a continuity function to the appropriate terminals indicated in the tables

We move the switch lever to the position corresponding to the contacts being checked - the lamp should light up. Otherwise, the switch is defective.

The pin numbers are shown in figure 1 and 2.
