I have lost power to all my turn signals and hazard lights. I have been told by parts store people that the flasher fuse is out. I have the replacement part. Problem is....can't find where the flasher fuse goes. It is a large 1 1/2" square fuse with three prongs, not a standard fuse. Any ideas?

If 10A FUSE 24 in the fuse block is OK, power is getting to the hazard switch to turn on the flasher unit and send its output through the turn signal switch to the front turn lights and rear combination lights. If the replacement flasher unit is not defective, the turn signal switch could be defective or there could be a problem with the lights although it's unlikely.
The hazzard switch is the most likely culprit since it directs current to either the turn signal switch or directly to the turn signal lights depending on its position. Over time the contacts wear out in the flasher switch. When you push it in and out you are allowing good contact to return to the normally off function that routes power to the turn signal switch.
The flasher switch can be found at any good parts store.
The flasher is located above the fuse panel. The relays are built into the switch itself. They have a recall on the 4 way flasher switch because it is faulty and causes blinkers not to turn on. Very common Malibu and other Gm problem
Typically there is a seperate relay for both the turn signal and hazard lights; I expect the hazard relay has failed. These may easily purchased ( $5.00 or so ) and replaced. The attendent at the auto parts store should be able to give you placement of the relay location.
I hope this may have helped,
The flashers are timed thru the hazzard switch. The hazzard switchneeds replaced. As for your other problems, has to be a body control module. The dealer will need to program this peice, as it holds the miles.
