Re: replace head light switch 1996 blazer
First you need to take the lower trim panel off under steering column the you will see the other screws that hold that trim around the head lamp switch, you may want to look for some screws that will go straight up towards top of dash that are in front of the instrument cluster (hard to see) and some may be on the sides of the same trim piece that covers that instrument cluster. let me know

Most main fuses are located close to the positive battery cable and in some cases attached directly to the positive cable located in a plastic box with a cover. There may also be a fusable link used for a main fuse which will connect to the starter
This sounds ike the multi-function switch located in the steering column. The switch can be replaced by removing the ignition switch, the upper an lower steering column covers (there are 3 screws recessed in the lower half of the column cover) Remove the 2 torx head screws from the muti-function switch (which includes the turn signal lever and the wiper switch) unplug the wiring harnesses and replace the switch.
Before doing all of that check to see if the flasher unit itself is ok. It is ocated on the back side of the fuse panel under the dash.
First pop off the door open handle back plate with a screwdriver. It just snaps on. Do the same with the switch cluster plate below which also snaps in place and remove the switch harness connectors. Next pop off the small narrow cover plate under the armrest pull handle to expose 2 Torx screws. Remove these screws. Next locate a Phillips screw in a retaining cup which is located on the end of the interior door panel just above the latching mechanism and remove that. Locate two 3/8" hex head screws at the bottom of the door panel and remove those. Grab the door panel by the armrest handle and pull up to unhook it from the door. If its the driverside door, you will also have to diconnect the mirror adjustment switch connector to free the door panel.
The LCM or lighting control module is located under the dash to the right of the steering wheel, first you need to remove the hush panel under the knee brace, then there are 2 screws the hold it to a bracket. Unplug the 4 connectors towards the back and then slide it out and replace.
Have u checked the actuator linkage from the ignition lock cylinder down to the ignition switch on top of the steering column near the bottom under the dash? de-trim the steering column, there are four screws that hold the 2 halves of the cover on the column u access them from the lower cover, feel for the access holes with your finger, then u must drop the column down from the dash connection/support by removing the support screws to the column under the dash, they are 15mm, the cover screws i mentioned are Phillips head.
not easy, you have to remove bottom plastic from underneath the dash, there should be two or three you don't have to go to the passenger side, then the front contour snaps off bring your shifter arm al the way down to 1st gear and the steering colomn as well on that plastic contour you have the 4x4 switch to unplug, rear wiper switch, light switch, and rear hatch switch, wiggle the plastic out, now you should see the instrument cluster there should be two to 4 screws holding that in should be 7 mm screws, now careful, if you have the analog cluster you have the speedmeter cable in back to unclip, if digital odometer it's plugged in directly into the dash and there could be an additional plug on top of the cluster, if the cluster came out unclip the backing and you should see the back of the bulbs but careful some are twist off and many others are soudered on that board you aoto parts counter should have these lights in stock no sweat.... good luck
simple solution your turn signal fuse it burnt out. shouldn't cost more than 10 bucks to replace it. remove the bottom dash cover (about 6 screws) fuse is located under the ciggaret lighter. should take about five minutes total
