Steering column what is this part ad where did it come from?

So I was fixing my ignition on the 91 9C1 and while putting back my turn signal switch I found this. What is it and where does it go? The yellow plastic is a different color than t/s switch but it does have some of the same kind of grease on it. Please help. I want to finish this job

Any one? I really want to put this column back together. Does anybody know where I can get exploded column views or a parts list or anything that might help me figure this out. Help appreciated. Thanks

When I first saw your post, I didn't respond cause I just wasn't sure on that part and thought someone else may. I did take the time to find a exploded view of the column and didn't see anything that resembled that part. Just try and google the exploded views of a steering column and see what you come up with. Also sites like Nalley Buick and others have GM Parts illustrations which may show something like what youre looking for.

Maybe something like this google search might help...

Key buzzer?

#16 key buzzer switch

exploded view for the 1991 Chevrolet Caprice Tilt | Steering Column Services

May be under turn signal switch. It should touch lock cylinder. It should push into a hole in this area.

Total guess on my part.

Thanks. I looked at that spot. Already put that part back. Looked similar but buzzer switch is white plastic and this mystery piece is yellow plastic. Maybe a part of the turn signal switch? I can't find anything that resembles it in those exploded views either. So frustrating!!!

Yellow connectors are usually airbag stuff. Since I haven't opened my column yet I couldn't tell you if it's from inside but have you looked at the back side of the steering wheel airbag?
