Question about 1998 Hyundai Elantra

98 Elantra Turn Signals and Hazards Broken

This problem started a month ago. I know all the bulbs work because depending on the day the signals and hazards will work. When the signals and hazards do work it is for a short amount of time it may not last the entire drive. When the turn signals and hazard lights are not working there is no sound, no interior panel signals and no outside lights blinking. Also 2 months ago the panel lights would not illuminate at night so you couldn't see the speedometer and such. I checked the panel brightness and it was at it's highest setting so it wasn't something stupid like that. The next day there was no problem and I haven't had a problem with that since. Thank you very much for your time and help.

Check your flasher. The flasher is a round metal thing inside the fuse panel. There are two fuse panels in the 98's, one inside the car by the hood release latch, and one under the hood by the battery. I'm not sure which one the flasher is in, but that definetly sounds like your problem. It simply plugs in like a fuse, and I would say it probably costs less than ten bucks, so I would try that first before anything and even if thats not the problem you only wasted a few bucks. Oh yea on a few cars the flasher might not be in the fuse panel, if it's not in yours its probably under the dash. If you cant find it or don't think you know what it looks like, I would go to the auto parts store and buy the new one, that way you know what your looking for. Good luck, hope this helped you.

Turn signals and hazards stopped working on 2000 hyundai elantra


If the hazard switch had been removed and replaced for any reason, it may not have been connected properly.ie: a loose connector, If you say that bulbs (and fuse?) are okay, this could be checked.

P.S.: I love my Elantra. When I bought it more than eleven years ago, it was love at first drive. It's been that way ever since.

!997 Ford Thuderbird brake lights and hazards do not work


Lets start at the beginning.
The turn signals and brake lights use different fuses but both go thru the turn signal switch and use the same bulbs.
Have you checked the fuses for each circuit and does each switch have power in and out ?

IF THE TURN SIGNALS STILL WORK IN THE FRONT, THAT MEANS THE FUSE & THE FLASHER ARE OK. IF THE SIGNALS DON'T WORK AT ALL CHECK TURN SIGNAL FUSE & STOP / BRAKE FUSE. ARE YOU SURE THE CORRECT BULBS ARE BEING USED?

No Turn Signals, Hazards, or Breaklights


Try replacing the flasher unit, it is usually located on or near the fuse box. This is relatively inexpensive and more likely the cause.
Hope this helps

98 Hyundai Elantra turn signal and hazards only work sometimes.


You need to replace the fuse - have a look at the manual and see which fuse it is buy a new one put it in and it should be fine - the on off thing is where the fuse wire touches and then moves again.
