Default HELP!! lights, blinkers, & wipers all not working

Hi, new here. Thanks in advance for your help. Car is an 06, mfg date of 10/ 05.Headlights, blinkers, and wipers all went out at once. I did a search here and all I found was to replace mfs, I did. I spent $103 on it put it in and nothing changed. Please help!! Thanks

Start with unhooking the battery for ten minutes. While unhooked press the brake a few times to help rid of any residual power. Then hook it back up and see if this helps.

It wouldn't be the MFS as the wipers aren't working either and those are on a different stalk. By doing the battery disconnect that will reset the TIPM which I suspect is the issue.

Let us know if the battery disconnect helps. If not a trip to the dealer may be in order.

Also, if you didn't damage either MFS you can return the new one and get your money back. I had issues which I thought was my MFS in my 02, Oriellys where I got mine, took it back, no questions.

Call and ask, just say you found a loose wire and never used it.
( as long as you didn't crack/scratch, or damage it in any way )

Ray, your first response was a relief, your most recent has my wallet feeling scared.
I hope the reset works! :-)

I am sorry. I wasn't trying to scare you. Just trying to educate you on the TIPM. You might also check all the connections under the steering column too if the battery reset doesn't work. Just let us know so we can do our best to help you out.

Will do. The Cruiser is the Gf's so I have to get it to my house still, but I will keep you posted.
