Hi mralaniz, I'm glad to help!

My Jeep had the same problem and I found an issue with the wiring terminal end at the flasher that was lose. I crimped the terminal to fit tighter and never had the issue again. I tell you this because it sounds like you have a wiring issue somewhere in the dash. What you need to do is expose enough area so that you can do a wiggle test on all the wiring and connectors with the turns signals on until you find the problem area. Hope this helps and have an awesome day.

SOURCE: I have a 95 buick

If you have bought the car from a person they may have done some work on the steering column, If they did odds are they cut the wires instead of taking the time of feeding them up through the column. If this is the case a new wiring harness for it is only about 30 bucks, but you have to pull the steering wheel, be very carefull if you have airbags. all the work in changing that out is unplug the old one and tape a wire to the end pull it out and tape the new one to the same wire and pull it back through. I hope that helps.

SOURCE: Front right turn signal

You need to replace the whole socket. Unfortunately I was told by an auto wrecker that the daytime running lights on the front of the intrigue heat up the plastic in the black socket your bulb sits in and the plastic melts and prevents a proper contact with the bulb. I got a replacement socket and bulb for $15 at the auto wreckers. Money well spent - it is easy to replace! Your bulbs are probably not burnt out.

SOURCE: 98 Buick Park Ave: Rt turn signal does not work

Hi you may have a poor earth connection to the lights or a wire from the lights is touching the car body or another wire.

Was the relay switch new that you replaced? the one behind the dash?

Regards
Dan

Cant resolve a blinker issue, Tried the easy stuff.


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.

My turn signals don't work and I've checked the bulbs, fuses & flasher.


About all that is left on the list is the turn signal switch.
Do you have power in and out of the switch ?

The brake lights work but the turn signals don't!! Have checked the fuses and bulbs, but not finding the problem


Fuses and bulbs OK, but wires? Additionally I suggest keep in mind that turn signals work with FLASHER devices (two independent) on 1993 Buick Skylark..

Application: Turn signal
Flasher is located: Front seating area, driver side, under dash, driver side of steering column, mounted on support bracket

Application: Hazard flasher
Flasher is located: Front seating area, driver side, under dash, above kick panel, mounted in top of convenience panel

Hope this helps (remember to rate and comment this answer).

Turn signals dont work on 1993 skylark. all bulbs are good. hazard lights blink fine. turnsignal dash light stays green and doesnt blink


There are 2 separate flasher relays. 1 for the turn signals and one for the hazards. I believe you have a bad flasher relay for the turn signals. The location of that is in the front seating area on the drivers side, under the dash on the drivers side of the steering column, mounted on support bracket. I provided a picture of what it should kind of look like although the picture I gave you is an aftermarket one so the color and such may be a little different but will look the same. Don't get it mixed up with the hazard relay which is located in the front seating area on the drivers side under the dash above the kick pane lmounted on top of the convenience. I am almost 100 percent sure the flasher and hazard relay are the same so if you want to just swap them out in order to have turn signals that should work. You won't have hazards however. I hope this helps you and good luck.

My blinkers and flashers all quit working at the same time. Indicator lights in the dash won't even light up. Do flashers and blinkers run off the same fuse?


The do not run off the same fuse but they do run off the same blinker. Try turning on the key, click the left/right (check both) turn signal and then operate the 4 ways on and off at the same time. Work the 4 way switch back and forth 10 to 25 times and see if you get any short winks or blinks from the system.
Turn signals are usually on their own fuse in the glove box and hazard are on with the brake fuse. If this does not work, I would look at the blinker. It is possibly bad. Check each pin of the blinker and see if there is power there when you turn on the 4 ways or turn signals. Replace Blinker. Make calls to parts stores and dealer for location of this blinker.

Where is fuse for blinkers on 1989 buick skylark


REPLACEMENT The hazard flasher is located forward of the console on all N-Body vehicles. The turn signal flasher is located behind the instrument panel, on the left side of the steering column bracket. Replace the flasher by unplugging the old one and plugging in the new one. Confirm proper flasher operation.

The flasher is located behind the dash (trim removed for clarity)

The blinkers quit working


Do u mean the hazard flashers work, but not the turn signals? If so, check the turn signal flasher, it should be replaced. If I didn't understand your question, let me know.

Turn signal flasher


there are 2 one for the hazards and one for the blinkers

the hazards are under the dash about where your right knee would be you have to remaove the lower portion of the dash (2 screws)

the blinkers are way up under the dash by the parking brake.....way up you have to get on your back and move wires to see it if the flasher still works a little you can hear it.....again its way up there but you dont have to remove anything to get to it.

I just changed mine it took 10 times as long to find it as it did to replace it
