Blown fuse in turn signal and hazards

If you turn the turn signal on or you turn on the hazzards in a 1996 Chevy Silverado, the fuse blows. There is a seperate fuse for each circuit. Any suggestions

Have the trailer wiring checked for possible short, or individual blinker wires if it has been slightly wrecked.

Sounds like you have a Direct Short inside the Sterring Column. If you Tilt the Wheel you should get almost the Same Result. Not an easy fix, You will have to Pull the Steering wheel and Replace the Turn Signal Unit.

The direction signal won't work after the hazard button stuck "on"

The hazzard switch overrides the turn signal circuit. If it's stuck on, there will be no turn signals. You will have to repair or replace that hazzard switch to get your turn signals to work again.

Turn signal and hazzards fail to work, brake lights, tail lights work,but when you apply the turn signal or hazzards lights go out

It sounds like your turn signal fuse might have gone out. It's not just a simple fuse to pull in the 96 Blazer. You actually have to take the lower half of the dash apart to get to it. It takes about 15 minutes in all to do. It's a round fuse right below your stereo almost. Here are a couple of links that I hope might help you!

The simplest way put, go to your local auto parts store and tell them you need a turn signal RELAY. It's the round relay. Then once you have that, go home and take apart your whole dash (you'll know what to look for since you already bought it) and replace it. It all should would after that! Best of luck to you!

Turn signals, hazard flashers, and brake lights not working on 1996 crown vic. pushed in fuse and worked for minute until hood was shut then went out again. Also took in circuit breaker and had checked....

well makes no sense turnsignals are on ignition switch fed fuse and brake lights are on 24 hour fuse.. to me sounds like bad turn switch... it handles turn signals also hazzards. and brake lights have to go through the turn switch also... it is common problem.. combination switch is what they call it.. not hard to replace either....let me know

I have a 1997 chevy silverado and I keep having a fuse blow that makes my hazzard lights and brake lights not work plz help me

If you have a trailer hook up, check that the wiring is not touching ground. Constant fuse blowing is an indication of a short to ground.

Hazzard Lights on 1998 Ford Crown Victoria won't work

The hazards are on a seperate fuse to the indicators, on the inside of the fuse box cover it will tell you which fuse it is, simply replace it with one of the same rating and your hazards should work, if not come back to me

I have no brake lights, no hazzard lights, but the signal lights work. Wiring has no breaks, but the fuse blows as soon as the brake or hazzard lights are used.

there is a short somewhere-try disconnecting all components on that circuit,put new fuse and try using one,if the fuse still blows,problem is in wiring or switch unit,if not,plug one component in and a time until the fuse blow,replace component
accordingly.make sure there is no slightly shaved wire touching the chassis,this will show when all if d/c'ed and fuse still blows,good luck
