Multifunction Switch Malfunction ??? PLEASE HELP...
Ok, I am trying to get my husbands favorite older Durango in great condition before he returns from an Army exercise...so I need some advice. Dodge Durango, 2000.
Here is the issue: All lights work fine on the vehicle, except the turn signals. I read some of other posts about the multifunction switch, but I wanted to get opinions on our truck.
The lights, windshield washers, spray and the bright lights work....but the actual turn signals, left or right don't work. Everything else the switch does works though. I changed the fuses for the turn signal and that did not make a difference. Does this sound like the multifunction switch? Any suggestions on what it might be?
I took it to a Dodge dealership and they said today that it is the multifunction switch and they said the part alone is $300. I looked online and saw no part that was three hundred dollars. I found the whole switch for like $70, so can't I buy it and take it to someone to just put it on. I don't mind paying for labor, but what part could they possibly claim needs to be fixed and the part alone costs 300. We just had work done there last week and I think they are trying to get me. Please let me know what you think.
All opinions welcome. Sorry for sounding "stupid" but when my husband is here he normally handles all car repairs. I just don't want him to return to a car problem. Thanks in advance...
