Re: I have a 2005 Pontiac G6 that the hazard flashers...
I'm not sure but alot of other gm models have the flasher built into the hazard switch. Gm has a real problem with this style of switch/flasher. I've replaced lots of them, but I'm not sure if it is the same design and Impala, Montecarlo, and malibu, but I bet it is.

There are usually two flashers that are used on most cars. One for the turn signals and one for the hazard lights. They are usually located under the dash. If you don't know what they look like, then go to the parts store and ask to see a new one. Once you locate both of them, see if they have the same part number stamped on them. If they do, then switch them and see if the signals work. REMEMBER : The key must be turned on for the turn signals to work in most cases. The hazard flashers will work with the key off. If the signals work, then replace the turn signal flasher. I hope this information is helpful and thank you for using Fixya.com.
are you sure you don`t have a bulb filament that is making and breaking contact causing the flasher to intermittently work.assuming you mean they either stop flashing or flash faster than normal.when the flashers are working look under the dash and find the flasher unit with it operating.all you have to do is pull the flasher out of its location and install in reverse.i say check with the signals working because the hazard flasher looks the same but is a different unit.
try the hazard flashers if they work then the fuse is good,check the lights with the hazard flashers working.if they are all working then its should be the signal flasher that is bad.its located at the fuse panel and is round in shape.make sure you replace the signal flasher and not the hazard one.with the hazards on you can tell which one is the signal flasher as it will not make any noise they look the same and people tend to replace the wrong one.
you don`t say but do the lights work either on the front/back on both sides.if not then it may be a fuse that needs replacing or need a bulb replacement.if the lights work but don`t flash then it sounds like a signal flasher problem.the flasher is located in the fuse panel under the dash on the drivers side.if the hazard flashers work then turn them on to find the hazard flasher by the fuse panel then you will know what the signal flasher looks like and change the signal flasher.make sure you change the one for the signals and not the hazard one.if the hazards work then i would say the signal switch is good as the hazards work through the same switch.
the flasher is built into the hazard switch on these cars remove the bezel around the radio remove the 3 screws holding in the hazard switch remove from behind and unplug your done then dealer sells these for around 28 bucks give or takte hope this helps
Hello and welcome to FIXYA. this vehicle does not have a conventional lighting system in it. In order to diagnose it, you require a scan tool capable of accessing the Body Control Module ( BCM).. There are no relays or flashers in the system. The turn signal light switch is only an input to the BCM. The BCM controls the turn signal bulbs by pulsing a voltage to each bulb depending on which way you are turning. In order to diagnose the problem you need to monitor the signal light switch input to the BCM and the output to the bulbs. As for the actual cause of the problem it could be the switch, the BCM or one of the wire connections it the system. As your probem is intermittant is will not be easy to diagnose.
Try your hazard lights. If they work, then it's your turn signal flasher. With your hazards on, listen under the dash for the constant "clicking". Locate the flasher for your hazrads... the turn signal flasher should be near it. Once you find it, just pull it out and replace.
You can use your hazard flasher in place of your turn signal flasher, just swap the two. This will get you to the store to buy a replacement.
