Directional signals screwed up, but my 4 way flashers work.
My left signal blinks on dash board, but not on outside of car. My right signal is solidly lit on dashboard, and does not work on outside of car. But my 4 way flashers - all work! We have tried replacing all the bulbs, and there are no fuses bad. We were told of a flasher unit fuse ( a square metal fuse), but we cannot locate it - Help!!

Re: Directional signals screwed up, but my 4 way flashers...
For this modle and year the turn signal flasher should be mounted in a clip on the right side of the steering column support bracket. The hazard flasher is located under the instrument panel in the module block, on the right side.
Hope this helps,

What you are saying makes no sense..If it is blinking then it is working. Well anyway the flasher should be located high up in the dash either to the left or right of the steering column. It probably has two flashers. One is for the emergency flashers and the other is for the directional signals. I think the one you are talking about is located on the left side. You have to explain in more detail and clarity as to what you are referring to.
The signal wire going to the right front has a splice for the dash indicator, a wire branching off from the turn wire and going to the dash. It sounds like that right signal wire is broken or lost a connection before it splices off to the dash, so the problem sounds like it is under the dash, either coming out of the turn signal switch to the flasher or from the flasher to that splice. You may need a multi-meter to check voltages on that wire at various places under the dash. Ascertain which color wire you need to concentrate on. Check for voltage on it with key on and right blinker on-voltmeter will spike to battery voltage, then fall to zero as the flasher breaks voltage continuously, if checked after the flasher. If checked when leaving the turn switch, it should be a continuous signal on that wire. Think you better find a wiring diagram to find the right wire to check. Good luck.
Replace the flasher module is what I'd do. Turn signal flasher location
covering fuse box, next remove the screw holding the heater duct work extension,
with the duct work removed you can reach the flasher box cover by reaching up
under the dash, remove cover from the box, then remove the flasher, the heavy
duty replacement flasher is "taller" and the cover will not fit over it, reverse
Usually it is a bulb because it takes all 3 or 4 to make the flasher work. Not all bulbs have to work for the emergency flasher. If all of the bulbs are in fact good, it could be the turn signal switch. On rare occasions the flasher is the problem
hello......this sounds like a flasher for sure! it is cheap and easy too replace.....FLASHER is located under driver's side dash.......round shape, with 2-3 wires connected at 90 degree angle to flasher, good luck
