Flash signal My turn signals are giving me trouble. They sometimes work then they stop. I was told it was my flash going out. I dont have an owners manuel so I dont know where exactly to go into the car to fix it. Can anyone help me. Same problem, 1999 Alero GL w/63000 miles, the turn signals work for about 5 seconds and the shut off.

Check Under the Hood for the Fuse Relay Box. This should have the Flash Module in it. The Diagram is inside the Cover for the Box. If not there, Look under the Dash on the Left of the Steering Column and see if there is not a Panel under there that has a Small Circle and Square at the Top of the Panel, Turn the Flashers on and you will be able to here the Correct Box Ticking in Sequence with the Blinkers. Replace this Box. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!

I've got a 2006 Ford Focus, and recently the rear left indicator has stopped working (I have changed the bulb but the new one(s) don't work either) with the other indicators flashing double quick.


The turn signal lamps on your vehicle are controlled by the GEM - generic electronic module . Have the car checked for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes . Auto part stores can not check these code's , need a factory or professional type scan tool . These codes (if any) would point to the problem area . They flash faster because the GEM see's a problem and it's a warning indicator something is wrong , they made it like that so you go to the dealer . Principles of Operation
When the multifunction switch is placed in the LH or RH TURN positions, a voltage signal from the GEM is routed to ground. When the GEM detects the multifunction switch in the LH or RH TURN position, the GEM supplies voltage to the appropriate turn lamps in a flashing manner.
When the hazard warning switch is pressed, a voltage signal from the GEM is routed to ground. When the GEM detects a request for the hazard lamps, the GEM supplies voltage to all the turn signal lamps in a flashing manner. When operating correctly, the hazard lamps flash approximately 80 times per minute.

I suspect there is a problem with the turn signal/ hazard switch. turn the turn signal on left or right, if it doesn't flash, grip the hazard button and gently wiggle it around, if the signals start flashing, replace the turn signal switch. The Brake lights are wired through the turn signal switch, if the 3rd brake light works, the brake switch is OK. I don't think it has anything to do with the anti theft system (at this time)

most common problem is the turn signal/flasher module which is the hazard light switch on the dash. it is the cheaper of the two items also. you can try wiggling the turn signal lever when it makes the noise to see if it goes away, if it does then you have a bad contact in the turn signal switch on the steering column.

2000 taurus left turn signal flashes rapidly and the left rear turn signal lamp does not work. Does ford have burned out bulb sense circuit that would give this indication? The right side flashes normally.


Yes - the fast flashing is a warning that a bulb is burned out. Change the bulb (be careful to put it in the same as the old one as it probably is 2 bulbs in one , parking and turn/stop) and you should be fine.

your flasher fuse is generally a round, or rectangular metal fuse.It should be in the fuse panel under the dash.If you look closely at the back of the fuse,sometimes they are stamped. You may be able to obtain a diagram of your fuse panel from your owners manual,check the index,or appendix in it.If you still have problems after replacing the flasher fuse,you may have a bad signal switch in the collum.Also try your hazards.On my truck the hazard signal sometimes does not fully engage,although the hazards stop flashing the turn signals wont work.more than likely,if the flasher fuse is blown,your hazards wont flash either. the lights for the signal should appear on your instrument panel and stay on steady,and not flash. good luck

Turn signals sometimes don't work


Change the flasher to an electronic unit. They are far less likely to give you trouble.

Flash signal


Hi,

To my knowledge the turn signal flasher for a 2001 Oldsmobile Alero is part of the Hazard Flashing switch. It is actually a 4 way flasher unit in one assembly.

Additionally, there was a recall order for 1999-2002 Alero models due to electrical issues which includes signal lights. You can try calling Oldsmobile at 1-800-630-6537. The Ref. No. is 04098A issued Jan. 11, 2006. Accordingly, the repairs will be made at no charge to the customer. The special policy covers warranty repair (for such problems) for a period of 10 years or 150,000 miles (240,000 km), whichever occurs first.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
