Schematic

Doc here,

In this forum, there is a thread titled "Free online schematics"..go there and download yours for your truck.

Next get an ohm meter, set it for R x 1 , and pull the plug at the lower end of the steering column, referring to your schematic, ohm the circuits out one at a time, determine if the problem lies within the column or forward..the readings will indicate which side is the offender..

Mark each problem as you find it, and it's probable location (Column, speed controller, motor..etc..) and continue until you have found all the problems.

Next attack them one at a time, replace or repair the component involved, or inspect and correct any harness shorts that may exist.

BEST CLUE: In that system because of the adjustable column, the harness that runs through the column is usually the culprit, chafing on rotating parts..I'd check there first.

Doc

my column is not adjustible. i have tested most of the circuts with an ohm meter, and believe that i have a faulty stick/switch. i need to know how to replace it before i go ripping things apart.
