    My left turn signal stopped working, then started working intermittently. My battery was bad, I had it replaced and the turn signal has worked since. Was the bad battery likely the cause?

Look under the hood. there shall be a small black box with fuses labeled on the cover on the drivers side. then take your owners manual and figure out which relay it is and make sure they match. then replace if they do match.

Turn signal relay

There should be two flashers, one for the signals and one for the hazards. I'm pretty sure the two prong flasher on the fuse box is for the hazard and the other two prong is hanging in the harness behind the speedo.
I'll have to dig up a wiring diagram if thats not right.

The turn signal flasher is located above the fuse box under the dash on you drivers side of the vehicle. It will look like astandard relay. It is in the top row center. Hope this helps out.

My 2000 dodge durango turn signal lights stop working just recently. sometimes they would work and other times not, but now it just stoped.

A Mechanic told me my switch was broken, but the switch was working fine, the lights just stopped flashing. After some research and consulting with a male friend who knows more about this than I, we discovered it was only the turn signal flasher -- a $16.00 part. On the 2000 model, it's located under the dash, on a separate fuse panel I didn't even know was there. It's to the left of the steering column and right behind the main fuse box, but you can only get to it by going up under the dash. The green one is a little hard to get to, but that's the one for the hazard lights. Its easy to see with a good shop light. It's 1" by 1" ish. The turn signal flasher is below the green one. It's black and a little smaller, and much easier to get to. You simply unplug it and plug the new one in. Voila! There are other fuses on this panel -- I'm not sure what they go to, but I intend to find out so I don't waste money replacing parts I don't need to.

Signal lights stoped working

Did just one side stop working or both? Check the bulbs (front and rear). Check the signal relay (should be in the fusebox). Also look for any related fuses. One other thing is it could be the turn signal switch itself. Likely it's going to be one of those things. Start with the easy stuff - bulbs, fuse, relay. Good luck.

Check all bulbs, fuses, then relays (the flasher relay could be a 1 inch round silver type plug) (other relays are usually 1 inch square like black boxes).
Fuses and relays are located under dash or under hood marked in their location or in the manuel.
Also look for any obvious wire damage or rusted wires nearby why your there.

Blinkers stoped working

Please check to make sure that it isn't your flasher fuse. You may have the ability to exchange it with your emergency flasher unit. Turn on your emergency flasher to locate where this unit is installed under your dash. Make sure that the e-flasher unit and turn signal unit can be interchanged. If you are confident that they can be switched, go ahead and see if that solves your problem.

Turn signals and hazard flashers quit working

There are two possible locations for the relay.

First in the fuse panel, close to the bottom.

Second, in some models they put the darn thing behind the dash in the center of the car, it's a real pain to get to if it's that one.

Good luck
