Hello all I apologize if this has been posted before.
2007 Cobalt, 2 dr, Manual
I have two issue's.
First: My passenger side headlight has just randomly started dimming on it's on, it's on but just barely lit. If I turn on my passenger side turn signal it flash's fast like I have a bulb out but there is nothing wrong with the lights themselves. I have noticed two things, If I turn the wheel the light goes back to full power, and also have notice if I hit a bump it goes back to full power. I am unsure if those two things are related, all of this was noticed on my way to work tonight. So I can't tell yet if one or both are connected. Any advice on this would be helpful. I have been able to determine so far from deduction that it is either a power flow issue, or a bad connector/switch in either the steering column or headlight connector.
Second: This has been an issue since I bought the car but, only now has it aggravated me, I have two buttons on my steering wheel that scroll threw the driver info center on the dash. When I turn the steering wheel the button lights and ability to scroll/select driver info stop working. Until I turn the wheel a little more and it comes rite back. I bought this car used from a dealership and I only know what the CarFax report says. The report says the ignition switch was replaced by a Chevy dealership already so I would assume somewhere during this replacement something was messed up, as I have read on here before that other people have had issue's in the past with dealerships doing shotty work.
Any help on either of these two issues would be appreciated preferably both. Please be detailed with your info, I will be fixing this myself so the more detailed you can be on the causes and the fix would greatly help me.
