Today I replaced the turn signal light flasher on my Buick LeSabre 1993 and they work good now. After reading here how to replace it I went to try it, but it was not located near the hazard flashers as stated by someone, isntead it was located way up near the AC vent to the left of the steering wheel. Very difficult to get it out, but I got it out and just lefted haging low near the fuse box, which is fine.

Thank you for posting the solutions to these types of problems, I really appreciate it very much.

Do u mean the hazard flashers work, but not the turn signals? If so, check the turn signal flasher, it should be replaced. If I didn't understand your question, let me know.

The do not run off the same fuse but they do run off the same blinker. Try turning on the key, click the left/right (check both) turn signal and then operate the 4 ways on and off at the same time. Work the 4 way switch back and forth 10 to 25 times and see if you get any short winks or blinks from the system.
Turn signals are usually on their own fuse in the glove box and hazard are on with the brake fuse. If this does not work, I would look at the blinker. It is possibly bad. Check each pin of the blinker and see if there is power there when you turn on the 4 ways or turn signals. Replace Blinker. Make calls to parts stores and dealer for location of this blinker.

There should be two flasher relays.The one for the turn signals probably is bad.The easiest way to find it would be to turn on the hazards and listen to where the clicking is coming from.Track that down and the other flasher is usually next to it or within a few inches of it. As long as the hazard flasher is working you can remove that one and put it in the turn signal one just to verify that is the issue.If that corrects the issue you will need to purchase a flasher relay.

Signal lights only work intermittenly


The blinker relay is getting worn out. It's right behind the hazard lights switch. Pull off the black trim around the radio, hazard, ets, and the relay is write there. Next time the blinkers stop working hit the hazard button or hit the trim just above the hazard lights button. Mines been doing it off and on and I just hit the trim above the hazard button and they start blinking again. Never have time or remember to get a new relay.

You have some burned out filaments. On dual filament bulbs the "blinkers" I am taking it to mean the turn signals. They are one filament. The "Flashing Caution lights, work on a relay circuit, which sends a larger amp current into the opposite filament then the turn signal. Check front & rear bulbs.

Hazards and blinkers not working


There are separate fuses for the turn signals and blinkers, but you should check both of them just to see if they're good.

You may have a burnt out turn signal bulb as well. I know that this sounds like an obvious answer, but a single bulb can sometimes disable the entire system because of the way that some flashers operate.

You could also have a defective turn signal/hazard light flasher. This is located under the dash board on the driver's side between the steering column and the door. You have to remove the sound insulation/kick panel (the cover on the bottom of the dash board) to reach the flasher (it is easy to remove - I don't think you even need tools).

Brake lights quit working. All fuses and bulbs are good. There is a blue wire labeled "electric brake" hanging by the pedal switch. where is this supposed to go?


I have had this problem for over 8 months. Break light would work, blinker would not . . . then blinker would work, break light would not . . . turn headlights left break light would go out . . . FINALLY my 75 year old father figured it out !!!! It was the STOP SWITCH - even though it showed it was working - Please replace it anyway !!! It's only $14.00 for the part. Also the other part needing replaced was the Flasher Relay - $34.00 !! NOONE not even JEEP could figure out this problem !!!

2004 wrangler blinker problem


What other problem did you have before the signals quit? Something that stopped all functions from the signals has to be either a feed or ground IF the flasher is good. Signals feed. Hot wire from the flasher 1 and it should blink underload, but not with a test light or DVM. In other words using a test light the flasher wire should be powered steady. All the rest of the switch is switchable. You should also get a hot wire when the brake pedal is pushed. Check for power at the brake switch,key off.
