Question about 1990 Buick LeSabre

1 Answer

No turn signals

Have a 1990 Buick Lesabre. No turn signals, but I do have hazard lights. Just had the signal switched replaced as well as the fuse, and still no signals.

When the signal switch is activated, and you have the brakes on, it does cut off the brake lights in the direction of the signal. But the lights wont activate. Checked all the bulbs, even replaced some of the brake bulbs.

Not sure what it could be. Any help will be appreciated.

Have you tried replacing the flasher? They're typically round, and with the fuses under/in the dash. They probably cost 10-15 bucks, usually available at your local autoparts store.

Lost turn signals, hazards, and brake lights


Sounds like you burned a fuseable link wire. Some of the circuits are protected by a fuseable link in addition to the regular fuses you can see.
Check the wires at the starter with a test light or meter - one of them may be burned inside.

1990 buick lesabre turn signals don't work,hazard flashers work, bulbs are ok, running lights & brake lights work, just installed a new turn signal assembly, thought that would fix the problem, it did...


the turn signal flasher is a small canister-shaped or rectangular unit located under the dash, either in a clip adjacent to the steering column or in the convenience center which is located located under the right side of the dashboard and houses relays and other components. The fuse.faulty flasher unit a broken switch or a loose or open wire. We have eliminated the switch, I would check all fuses inside and out, you can replace the flasher with the hazard flasher as if I remember correctly they are the same shape and size, then it is just a matter with a tester light running it from the column to the sockets and finding the break. Hope this helps Tim

Can't find flasher on 1990 buick lesabre


A friend of mine restores cars and he said:

There are two different flashers.
1. The hazard lights should be found on the steering column.
2. The turn signal flashers should be found under the steering column to the left.

Turn Signal Fuse or switch replacement? '93 buick lesabre?


Yes all the wiring needs to be complete. Then all the bulbs must be inserted into sockets. left side marker right side front turn back turn reverse lights brake light everything. Then make sure they all work. The problem could even be a bulb thats on the fritz ready to blow but still on and dim little light. if that's all fine then it's probably your flasher. There are 2 flashers one for turn and one for hazards but I think they are the same but still separate. located under dash on either side of the steering wheel. The flasher closest to the door is up in there pretty far it's size is about like a 2 liter cap and it's silver. good luck

I think that your flasher is bad I believe that the 4-ways flasher is a seperate flasher unit it should be in the fuse box and look like the 4-way flasher , to find the flasher turn on the 4-ways and you can feel it or hear it flashing and lok for the flasher for the turn signals
