Turn signals not working...put on right signal and left goes off
This is sporatic, but very annoying. Sometimes when turning on the right signal, the left is activated. Turning on the left, sometimes does nothing. Other times, it works without problems. Should I replace the turn signal unit? If so, is this something that could be done at a less than decent home garage?

Turn signal switch in the steering column. There are no relays/flashers on this vehicle. It is all controlled by a computer. The switch is most likely worn and not sending the correct voltage signal to indicate left or right.

When the turn signals quit working pull up , down , front to back an back to front on the turn signal switch handle . Do they work when doing this ? Pontiac had bad switch . The power for the turn signals goes through the flasher / hazard module . Could be the switch or the module.
The HAZARD LPS fuse in the left hand instrument panel (LH IP) junction block supplies battery positive voltage to the flasher module, which is part of the hazard switch assembly. The TURN LPS fuse in the LH IP junction block supplies ignition positive voltage to the flasher module. The turn signal lamps may only be activated with the ignition switch in the ON position. When the turn signal switch is placed in either the left or right position, current flow is from the flasher module's output to the turn signal switch assembly. The flasher module then sends an on-off voltage signal to either the left or right turn signals and their instrument panel cluster (IPC) indicator. When the hazard switch is pressed, all the turn signal lamps will flash including both IPC turn signal indicators.
Sometimes the housing the bulb is in has gone bad try cleaning out the prongs where the bulb goes in it that does not work replace the fixture the bulb goes in had the some thing happen to my trailblazer hope this helps
that vehicle has a desperate relay for the hazards which is why they work, you have a defective signal flasher sometimes called a signal relay, follow the noise to locate exactly where the part is, usually under driver side of dash, it is a very cheap part and easy to install.
heyii lady i am not so sure in this case but if it is not a short then may be your induction coil is producing more crrent than required..
so get your coil checked..
or this time..if u have not been then put genuine compant lamps..
i hope this will help you out..
