Parked for the winter... or what counts for the winter in AL

Brake pedal dropped to the floor on the way in to work this morning.

Time for some repairs and maintenance.

Brakes
Rear main seal
Turn signal switch
Shocks
Maybe new speakers

Got a chance to look, and found a wet spot under the Driver's front wheel and a wet brake hose.

If you have Gorilla lugs, you can order from amazon, Discount or any real tire shop should have one in a pinch.

Take an impact socket just slightly too small to fit on the nut. Tap on with hammer. Take off nut. Tap nut out of socket while holding it in a vice.

I have McGard, and I've sent them a pic of my spare. Hopefully they can ID and will send me a replacement.

Opened up the steering column today. I'm not seeing anything broken or missing. What should I be looking for when only the driver's side rear flasher and brake light won't flash or light up?

The black thing with all of the wires going to it is the T/S switch.

Right, but there doesn't appear to be anything obviously wrong with it. All the contacts look clean and wires are intact. Does it just 'go bad' and need to be replaced?

Switch the left taillight with the right taillight. If the left side (drivers side) works and the right side doesn't, go buy a left taillight. Put the right taillight back where it belongs and the replacement taillight on the left. (The right taillight won't have a license plate light).

If you switch the taillights and the left one still won't work, start following the circuit back until you find where you have power to the light. Repair as necessary.

Good Luck, L.M.

I've done most of that, just didn't think about switching out the housings.

I switched the housings this afternoon, and no change in function. I've ordered the turn signal switch. See if that fixes it.

Check your connections at the plug coming out of the steering column.
Also check the harness at the drivers rear where it goes from the top to under the tub for damaged wiring. My PO had added a trailer wiring harness there and it was shorting the brakes out occaisionall
