Hi there. Most of the time this type of problem is caused by an electrical short in the turn signal switch or steering column. I wouldn’t say this is a very simple fix, due to the fact that locating the short is the most difficult part of the repair. It’s probably best to have a professional mobile mechanic come to your location and complete an electrical problems inspection, so they can isolate the source of the short and recommend the right repairs.

I replaced the oil pan gasket, valve cover casked on passenger side and both motor mounts on my 2007 [escalade esv](/topics-escalade-esv/) and now it won't start. Verified starter is good but car does nothing when turning ignition. It only has limited functionality when ignition is turned to power accessory on. Dash lights up but doesn't read gas level and shift/gear indicator not on. Radio, cigarette lighter, low beam headlights and climate control work but nothing else. Battery charged up (12.5V) and been on trickle charger. Seem that one of the control modules is not working properly. Hope I didn't smash the wiring harness from [engine](/topics-engine-cadillac/) to transmission when I lifted the engine with the hoist to change the motor mounts!
