In many cars, there is a separate hazard flasher that creates a parallel circuit to your turn signals. Typically, these flashers look like little silver round cylinders or rectangles, and, as you have noted, they typically plug in somewhere beneath the dashboard, often near the fuse box. Sometimes, however, they can be a bit tricky to spot, so you can't assume that just because you don't see one, there's nothing there.

These flashers are usually pretty inexpensive (as little as $4-5 for a standard flasher), but they do come in several plug configurations, so take notice of the outlet where the flasher would plug in.

It sounds like you're on the right path to diagnosing this problem, so good luck getting to the finish line with this project.

SOURCE: electrical problem

Find the ground wire on one of the lights and add another ground wire to a good clean metal surface and see if that fixes the problem. It defently sounds like a ground problem at one of the lights.

SOURCE: 1997 Chevy Tahoe both turn signals stopped working

Sounds like the flasher unit to me. Normally the emergency flasher and turn signal are separate.

Do the hazard lights work when switched on? If so it's most likely the flasher unit for the indicators is faulty or the hazard warning light switch

I have a 1987 chevy deluxe r10 dont have any turn signal I have head light brake lights park light an hazard lights but no right turn signal nor left turn signal I have check all fuses and put a new signal...


I think you might have a separate flasher for the turn signals under the dash. The turn and hazard flasher would look alike. Turn you hazards on and find the flasher for it under the dash. You will probably be able to feel it working and hear it clicking. The other flasher under the dash is for the turn signals. Try replacing that one. I think it was in later years they began to combine the two into a single composite flasher.

Hazard lights and turn signals not working


Sounds like the flasher relay switch. It is probably on the back side of the fuse box, or a separate thing, on the steering colum under the dash. But it is attatched to the wires comming out of the colum. Or could be a fuse, or the switch. However if it was turn switch the hazards shoud work.

Blowing brake light fuses everytime you hit brakes.


Sounds like a short in the steering colume, maybe the turn signal switch, or a wire that the insulation got wore thru in the colume. Unhook break light switch and try the turn signals and hazards again and see what happens, maybe you can isolate it that way. Also if you havent done it already chk.the sockets in tailight housing for corrosion and bear wires, or anything, even ground wires.

Turn signals wont work but flashers do


Hi.
On your 98 Dakota.
Is equipaded with a single Flasher.
If you replace all ready.
Check the FUSE # 10, 15 amp..
On the Fuse box. left side of Dash.
and the FUSE D 25, amp. On engine compartment Fuse box.
Check the proper funtion of the HAZARD switch.
Bacause if the Hazard switch is bad the turn signal don't will work. Match the OLD flasher with the New one.

If after of this still not work.
Remove the steering wheel cover, locate the Turn signal switch connector and with a TEST Light check power with the Key ON
12v. to the RED wire and PINK wire..
If you found 12v. check the connection with the switch.
If the connection is good. you will need to replace the turn signal switch.
But if you don't found 12v. You need to look a an open circuit.
And fix it..

I hope this help on your problem..
Thank you for use fixya...
