Intermittent turn signals 2003 Alero

Turn signals work and stop working randomly. Pushing the flasher switch slightly sideways makes the turn signal work again. Need to remove the flasher assembly I think.

SOURCE: My turn signal keeps making the ticking noise after its cancelled

That is the "Hazard Switch" located on the dash. A very easy fix and have always been a common issue with those types of GM cars.

SOURCE: Beeping Noise/Blinker Noise

I thought the same thing. In the past with this car that was the case, it needed a lightbulb replaced somewhere on the car. So after replacing 4 lightbulbs on the car, it still makes the noises...question for someone: I did notice that when i open the doors on the car, the dome light does come on but there are no lights down by the floor in the front of the car...if these bulbs are burnt out too then I will need to replace these and maybe the ticking noises will stop? Are there lights for the floor area on the 2003 Alero model?

SOURCE: Signal lights are intermittent, once

Its located behind the hazard button to the right of the speedo cluster. If you have a clicking noise as if your turn signal was on or hazard buttons pressed. Its not your flasher problem. I had to tear apart half the dash and found out that was not problem. Its the turn signal/ wiper switch located on top the steering column. Its very easy to change. The top piece above the turn lever and wiper lever just snaps out. One torx screw holds it in. Unscrew then lift up there are a few wire plugs in the back. Lift up on the wire tabs and pull plugs out. Reverse order to replace with new part that I bought from Napa auto parts for around $150. You can do this if you have very novice skills and 1 torx bit tool. If can help in any other way, just let me know and good luck.....YOU CAN DO IT!!!!

Turn lights stop working, hazard lights not always work


I would start with the flasher, it's the easiest and cheapest and the most likely to fail.

My blinkers work sometimes and then stop working for a while, then will start working again for no reason, its very random. I dont know what i should do to get this fixed.


The turn signal flasher is bad. It is built into the hazard switch. Replace the hazard switch. The next time the turn signals quit turn the hazard switch on and off a few times and see if they start working.

Both turn signals do not work or works intermitantly


There is a recall on the alero for this issue. We had the same with our 01 alero and they fixed it under the recall.
