: the contact stated while turning sharply at low speeds the steering wheel made a popping noise. The dealer recommended greasing the steering column, but informed the contact this would not correct the problem permanently. Therefore, the dealer was unable to offer any permanent solution.

Headlights fail to come on sometimes if steering wheel is tilted, it will have to move tilt on steering wheel sometimes they will come on in a certain position on the wheel and the interior dial will not make them come on, if they are on and high beamed or used it will make the lights go out all together, will not come on until tilt is readjusted.
