Question about 1997 Subaru Outback

My turn signals dont work but my hazard lights are blinking. everything else in my car works just fine. my brother says that it was the hazard switch thats shorted out and the relay is causing a clicking sound in my steering column/dash. i just want to know if there is some way i can remedy this situation in an inexpensive way.

Did the battery get changed recently? There is a small black box under dash near steering colom that has a little red button on it. Press the little button for a few secounds allowing it to reset the security system. It should stop your marker lights from flashing. It was a stock security for that year. The box is about 4 inch square and is usually just under dash near your knee. Good luck.

on some of these models, the hazard switch operates through its own flasher fuse. if this is the case, locating and replacing the fuse ($4) should do it. Location should be in the owners manual.

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.

Hazard/turn signal dont work 2002 monte carlo will not fash nor turn on once in a while indicator light blink for a slight second


you could have a bad flasher unit causing this.you say hazard/flasher not working.do you mean just the signals not working and think the hazards won`t work or are the hazards not working.there are two flasher units one for signal and one for hazards.you could have a problem with the signal switch as well.

Driver side turn signals will not blink.I have replaced bulbs The flasher works


When you turn on your hazard lights, does everything blink OK? If so, that confirms that the flasher unit is working properly, and that the bulbs are OK.

If the light does not even illuminate when you use the turn signal, and the step above showed everything working, then the problem is the turn signal combination switch beneath the steering wheel is defective.

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

Brake light/turn sigs dont work.But lights are on?


Ok, GM had a problem with their hazard light switches in the years of around 2001-2005. These caused some bizarre workings concerning the hazards, lights, turn signals, etc. The circuits overlap, and when the switch malfunctions, it makes for some odd happenings. Normally, when the hazards are on, they cancel out the brake lights and the turn signals, since they use the same circuits. The normal taillights use a different filament in the same bulb, which is why they light up brighter when you press the brakes. The aftermarket has come up with replacement switches in response to these inherent problems, so do not get your switch from GM. Places like RockAuto.com will sell these, though not necessarily this place, it's just the one I use. Usually, GM put these in the steering column, so replacement can be tricky for the average person, as it involves taking apart some of the steering column.

2004 monte carlo. Turn signals dont work. The stalk still works with other functions, such as wiper, brights. The fuse is fine. Could it be a bad relay? When u push the stalk up or down nothing happens on...


try pressing the hazards on and off if they still don,t work replace the flasher unit. it is built into the hazard switch( all one unit ) change this and all will be good.
