Check the fuses. The proper way to test fuses is as follows:
With the ignition 'ON' check both sides of each fuse with a test light connected to 'ground' which is the battery negative terminal, or any clean unpainted metal part on the vehicle's chassis which you can clip on to will suffice. The test light should light on both sides of the fuse. If it lights on only one side, replace that fuse.
If after this check you find that all fuses are good, and the problem still exists, you need to test for 'power' and 'ground' on the dash light and turn signal circuits, in order to find where the problem or 'interruption' in the circuit is. If you feel up to it, wiring diagrams can be obtained at your public library.

    I believe that module you are looking for is somewhere down by the bottom of the radiator, mounted on the radiator support, if memory serves me correctly.

Turn signals are on fuse number one and brake lights are on fuse number 9. Both are in the fuse box under the dash or on the side of the dash. Both are 15amp.

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.

Dash lights-turn signal and rear lights


Access your fuse box and check the fuse labled- rear tail lgts,turn sgns, that fuse is blown, replace the fuse with the same value fuse, while your under there, on the fuse box or next to it you'll find 2 round plug in components, about the size of a Marshmellow, one of these is your flasher unit and the other is for your turn signals, replace both of these, even though one may work, it's just good sense to replace both, that shoud fix your rear lighting problem. good luck.....

Turn signal wont work 1999 cadillac eldorado E.T.C


start with a fuse, then go on to a turn signal relay. turn the level left or right on the steering column with the inginition switch on, if the light in the dash lights up but won't flash, it is the turn signal relay.
