Blinkers work sometimes?

My 2000 alero's blinkers do not work all the time. Usually if I hit the flasher button when they won't turn on they start working again. What could this be and how can I fix it?

There was a recall for this type of problem. I had the same problem and changed the signal flasher, and switch, and still had the problem. Having the dealership address the recall issue fixed the problem for me.

You probably need a new signal flasher unit, it's easier to find when it's working, just follow the clicking noise. If that's not the problem, it could be the multi function switch, or possibly a broken wire from tilting the column up and down (if it has tilt) I would go with the flasher unit first to see if that fixes it.

Signal lights only work intermittenly


The blinker relay is getting worn out. It's right behind the hazard lights switch. Pull off the black trim around the radio, hazard, ets, and the relay is write there. Next time the blinkers stop working hit the hazard button or hit the trim just above the hazard lights button. Mines been doing it off and on and I just hit the trim above the hazard button and they start blinking again. Never have time or remember to get a new relay.

that vehicle has a desperate relay for the hazards which is why they work, you have a defective signal flasher sometimes called a signal relay, follow the noise to locate exactly where the part is, usually under driver side of dash, it is a very cheap part and easy to install.

My blinkers are working properly, however, I get a fast blinking sound. Would buying a new emergency flasher correct this problem? The flashers are currently workiing.


There are usually two different flashers for the 4-way and turn signals.
Before you replace the flasher, make sure all your bulbs are working.

When i'm driving sometimes my blinkers will work and sometimes they don't


Replace the hazard switch. The flasher for the turn signals is built into it and they are common for going bad.

My blinkers work sometimes and then stop working for a while, then will start working again for no reason, its very random. I dont know what i should do to get this fixed.


The turn signal flasher is bad. It is built into the hazard switch. Replace the hazard switch. The next time the turn signals quit turn the hazard switch on and off a few times and see if they start working.

Where is the flasher in my 2001 oldsmobile alero? i hear the clicking all day long as if the blinker is on.


The problem is the hazard flasher.You will need to replace it and this should stop the clicking.This is the switch on the dash where you turn on the hazard flashers.If you play with it while it is flashing sometimes it will stop.This is a good way to tell that this is the problem.Hope this helps.Good luck.

Turning signals not working all the time


Sounds like the blinker relay. Is the emergency flasher switch on the dash above the radio ? If it is the blinkers relay is the same as the emergency relay. If the blinkers stop working pound on the emergency lights switch and if they start working then replace the emergency lights relay switch cause the blinkers is on the same relay as the emergency lights. My 2001 Grand Am does the same and I just hit the emergency lights switch and they start working again.

Beeping Noise/Blinker Noise


sounds like your electronic flasher unit maybe stuck causing the noise. they are generally located under the dash on driver side just below the instrument cluster.
