Bright lights randomly go on and I have to wiggle the turn signal to turn them off

Asked by Feb 05, 2015 at 11:12 AM about the 2006 Pontiac Grand Prix Base

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The high beam lights activate for no reason while I am driving and the only way to shut them off is if I wiggle the turn signal arm. They will continue to do this while I am driving and it really angers the cars in front of me. Can anyone offer me a suggestion?

The dimmer switch is part of the turn signal arm. You will likely need to replace the switch. Might want to check that the wiring harness is properly connected. first.

Agree. Its either that switch or the wiring leading up to it.

I don't have one because I'm having the same problem with my 2006 Pontiac Grand prix.

I've got behind 3 cops and this has happened. Not fun. Apparently it's the turn signal arm or the wiring... honestly easy to order the part yourself and do it.

Mine had the same issue, just started today found the problem. The wire connecting to the switch had gotten lose. Just had to pull the switch and reinsert the wire. It's the brown wire in the harness.
