Question about 1997 Buick Century

Open Question

The turn signals on my 1997 Buick Century are not working

When I turn the turn signal switch, the dash indicators light up but 3 out of the 4 turn signals do not work. I have replaced all of the bulbs and check the fuses, what would my next step be?

    Check to see if your 4-way (emergency) flashers work. If they do and your bulbs all light up -- you may have a 2way flasher out.

    I had lights on my 94/95 but no flashers on one side. I did have all emergency flashers. So I replaced the 2way and wahlaaa I now won't get stopped for no turn signals.

    I'm not sure if yours will be in the same location as mine -- but it took quite an acrobat for me to find it. I was told that when I turned on my 4ways it would help to determine which flasher was which. Problem was I couldn't see them. I could hear the emergency was on the left of the steering column and knew that the 2way was on the right side.

    LOOK for a silver flasher that may be CLipped and pushed up and back on the right of the column in vicinity or height of where your kneecap would ride, behind the panel. Hope you find yours easier than mine.

Remove the bulbs one at a time and check for dirt and corrosion at the contacs inside the sockets.The corrosion will cause higher than normal resistence and will make the signal to flash rapidly.As this only happens to the right side only check the right side.

SOURCE: 93 buick century -turn signals

The Buick Century uses separate relays for the hazard warning and turn signal functions. The turn signal relay is located on the accelerator pedal bracket, and the 4-way flasher relay is located on the convenience center near the left kick panel. Try switching these two relays with one another to see if your turn signals work instead of your 4-ways.

07 Impala rear driver side brake light and turn signal does not work, but when I checked the bulb it was working just not when I press the brake. The left turn signal on the dash also blinks rapidly.


Sounds like a possible bad ground connection.
Make sure the contacts for the bulb are clean.
Make sure the cround connection is not corroded.

I have brake lights and hazard lights. i do not have turn signals. in dash indicators for hazard lights come on, not for turn signals. fuses look fine and i found 1 signal bulb in the rear that needed...


If the fuse is ok then I would look into replacing the turn signal switch. This is not a very difficult task at all. If you have the hazards then your flasher unit would be ok. If there is only one bulb out then you are probably looking at the switch.
