Ive never had a problem with mine....

Im guessing you have checked all the fuses? In the dash as well as under the hood? Are all the bulbs good? Does your 3rd brakelight still working?


Heres a guess:
maybe its the Multi function Module? Its in the steering column....

Have any idea what may have caused them to go out in the first place?

Hope this helps!
maybe someone else will chime in with some other ideas/advise!
Thanks for Joining the MCF!
Were always happy to help other Monte Carlo Owners.

i would second it being the multifunction switch in the steering column, mine was bad when i got my '97 monte and it causes those exact symptoms. good news is the part is under $100, bad news is it is kinda involved to replace ( need to remove the airbag, pull the steering wheel and more in the steering column to get to it). so unless you're a skilled mechanic i would reccomend having a shop do the work.
