Dizzy Stolen 96 sl2 cut wiring under steering column

Iím completely ignorant when it comes to cars, especially electrical. Once I recovered my stolen sl2 (for the second time) I noticed they had cut wiring under the steering column. My turn signal/hazards donít work, but my tail lights, head lights, and brakes do. Not sure if Iím missing anything or just need to solder and put the wiring back together.

What kind of jungle do you live in that a Saturn gets lifted TWICE?


I have 9 running cars. (One Chrysler 8 Saturns)

I leave the keys in the ignition of ALL of them - 24/7/365.

Never had a problem.

My theory - anyone crazy (or desperate) enough to risk prison by stealing a Saturn - is somebody I want to avoid at all costs. I would hate to have to shoot some maniac over a $1000 car.

Maybe the thief just loosened or removed the flasher/turn signal module?
I only see that beige wire cut, but the 2 ends don't look close enough to each other unless there is some slack not showing.

If itís just one or two wires you should be able to color match and solder them together and wrap with electrical tape. I see two yellow wires that could go together, but I also see a third yellow wire and the picture isnít clear, so make sure to match them them up and test your lights before you solder them. Consider a kill switch or moving to a safer neighborhood.

Be careful with the yellow wires, GM decided it was a good idea to have yellow be battery power as well as a rear speaker wire and only make them different by size.

^ At least one theft in recent years didn't result in the car adding to stolen statistics. No sooner than the thieves broke into the **********(put your favorite car with a manual here) they discovered they can't drive a manual. They abandoned the car.......

If you purchase a Haynes manual, it will have the wiring diagram which should help you.

As a general rule of thumb, matching the wiring ends with the same colors is a safe way to repair the cut wires.

It is most assuredly not useless.

It is a great tool.

For cardiac diagnosis. If trying to use the Haynes manual doesn't jack up your blood pressure and heart rate - nothing will.....
