    thanks, emissionwiz.

    one more question...
    I am not particularly mechanically or electrically inclined.
    Can you tell me where exactly is the flasher unit and a brief on how to change the relay in layman's terms.

    Thanks.

    i went and got a new flasher unit, installed it. The turn signal and hazard lights work like a charm now.

    thanks.

This may be caused by the flasher unit, it looks like a relay, it is electronic and not electro-mechanical like the old ones. here is a part # BUSSMANN Part # 761, about $20.00

My left turn signal will not stop blinking while car is running or completely off...please help!!


Hi BJ:
Interesting...........

- Hazard lights work when ignition is turned OFF.
- Signal lights Don't work when ignition is turned off.
- Is it possible that the Right signal bulb is burned out?
- I'd be checking the functions of all of the bulbs.
How did this problem start?
Please reply as a COMMENT to this post.
Cheers.

Faulty flasher unit, cheap fix. Check bulbs too, badly earthed bulbs can create a light show too. Red.

Turn signal hazard lights work but not running lights


The parking lights should be on a different circuit from turn signals - hazard lights. The bulbs usually have two filaments, one for each circuit.
On most models there is a tail light fuse and relay that handles front and rear parking lights.

1992 Ford Ranger Turn signal/Hazard light issue


Can you just check to make sure the ignition key switch is not staying over to far and not backing off when you try to start it. I had a truck that did that and it messed up my turn signals until I brought the key switch back a little after starting it. Just a simple idea. Be kind with your rating for me. Raz

Turn signal right side does not work on 2005 saturn Ion quad coupe. replaced bulbs but no fix, it blinks fast like the bulb is bad. What else could cause this, no fuses for trun signals. Bulb lights up for...


I think you may suspect the hazard (4 way flasher) switch at this moment. The indicator wiring goes thru the Haz switch as standard because of the system requirments. Either a loose plug connector or improper reset hazard on / off position at switch. Good luck

I have no signals and when brakes lights are on, lose brake light to either side turn signal is set on


Hi!!

If you activate the turn signal switch and you step on the brake pedal, the turn switch (on the steering column) deactivates the brake light to make the signal light more visible. The bulb for the stop and turn lights is the same.

Turn hazard lights ON. If they don't blink, replace turn/hazard flasher, If one or more lights don't come on, replace bulb.

Check fuse and circuit wiring for broken or loose connections. If all looks fine, check following:

If front turn lights work fine, check brake/turn bulbs.

If turn lights come on but don't blink, replace turn signal/hazard flasher.

If front and back turn lights don't come on, replace switch on column.

Let me know how it worked out, Good Luck

Hazard lights and turn signals won't flash, lights work. where is fuse located for flashers on 99 saturn sl1.


on most newer cars the fuse block is under rhe hood on one of the fenders. google autorepair for a DIY website autzone has a realy good one that has great info on the electricalsystem. but it is not the fuse it's a little thin called a flasher relay that seems to be your problem. the flasher relay on a saturn is available at most autoparts stores and some might help you locate it and put it in for free.
