2000 buick park ave left turn signal flasher will not flash but can hear it blinking


If you hear a clicking sound when the turn signal is engaged then your actual flasher is good and the problem then is more than likely just a burned out bulb.

Hope this helps, good luck

Signal lamps do not light or blink when lever engaged. 4-way flashers do work.


It could be that one of the flasher module for the turn signals is bad. There should be 2 flasher modules: one for turn signals, and one for four way flashers. Check you vehicles manual for a location on the flasher modules, or Google a query like "Location of turn signal flasher module on a *Year Make Model*". After you locate them, it should be as simple as going to an auto parts store and asking them for a replacement module. If that doesn't work, I could be the switch in the dashboard, or a more complex wiring problem. Make sure you check all of your fuses too. I would say that if you cant fix it by replacing the flasher module, you should take it to a mechanic because it is very easy to destroy wiring in your car.

I have turnsignals problem on 92 buick lasabre limited i replaced flasher, all bulbs are good. if i manually move the turnsignal lever up and down the bulbs will flash also hazard lights work what else can...


When you say you replaced "flasher" I'm guessing you mean the combination turn signal flasher unit. If the hazards "flash" on the 4 way but the turn signal does not you are looking at a turn signal switch type problem. ... If 4way flashers do NOT work you need to check wiring immediately around the flasher unit mounting area.Or change Flasher unit Good Luck.

Stop and TS problem


there is a flasher
.the hazard is wired to constant power so it works with the ignition off.
the turn signal works off of a switched power,to the turn switch and either the right or left turn signal.
if a bulb burns out,the light stays on steady

Turn signals will not work


Check,

1.Fuse
If you know where the fuse panel/s are located, the fuse placement is on the back of the fuse panel cover.

2.Turn Signal Flasher Unit. The round aluminum 'can', usually under the dash on the drivers side.
There may be just one, and it is used both for turn signals, and hazard flashers.
Or, there may be two of them. One for turn signals, one for hazard flashers.

3.One turn signal bulb is out, and this vehicle may not let the turn signals work, with one bulb burned out.

4.There is a bad ground contact point, (Rusty), for the ground wire coming out of the lighting wire harness.
There will be a ground wire, or wires coming out of the front, and also the rear of the vehicle. These have Black insulation on them, and attach via a machine screw to metal. Usually some sort of sheet metal, of the body of the vehicle.

5.The contact points in the turn signal housing, for the turn signal bulb, are corroded.

Turn signal


Flasher speed is dependant on the amount of load (resistance) of the circuit engaged. More resistance (load) equals a faster disengagement/engagement of the flasher. In your case, because one side is behaving differently from the other you need to check the LH signal circuit to find out what is creating the extra load. Something is adding resistance to the LH circuit. I suspect a partial short circuit to ground possibly due to rust/corrosion at some point in the LH circuit. That would create just such a load on the flasher. A full short circuit would blow the fuse to the flasher. A partial short only increases the load on the circuit proportional to the conductivity of the short.
