Question about 1994 Chevrolet Cavalier
Hi, I have a 94 Chevy Cavalier and my turn signals stopped working on them. I tried everything I can think of to see if it would fix the problem by replacing the turn signal switch, relay switch, break relay, and checked the fuses which are fine. But still nothing will make them turn on. My headlights still work fine and so do my hazards. Also I noticed that when I use my turn signal, either right or left, my break light would go out for the direction I am trying to use it for. I am really at a lost on what to do and need some help on trying to fix this
You did not list the flasher as being replaced if not try that. When you turn the turn signals on this overrides the brake lights (same circuit) and that one will blink (if the flasher is good)

The problem is the turn signal/headlight/hazard switch assembly on the steering column which the brake light wiring runs through. The part is easy to change and cost about $50 at most parts stores

I had this problem, and to be honest, it happened to the left side about a week later...it's the board that the bulbs plug into...it's a very common problem with this model. So popular that you can normally get the socket board off the shelf at a parts store! it's extremely simple to replace, and I replaced all the bulbs at the same time!

Probably the flasher, as I think you have a separate flasher for the turn signals under the dash above the brake pedal. It is probably next to the hazard flasher. If you can't find it, turn the hazards on and follow the sound. The turn flasher is probably next to the hazard flasher. Please let me know if this isn't the problem or you have more questions.

No - headlight ok.
The reason that the Right turn signal blinks fast is that there is half the normal load (resistance)
on the right side, since the Right front turn signal isn't working.
Since you replaced the Right front turn signal bulb, your problem lies in the bulb socket or
the wiring to the socket.
(1) try cleaning out the socket - there's probably a contact problem in the socket. You
may need to squeeze the contacts together to provide good contact to the socket contact.
(2) if contacts inside the socket are ok, try back-probing the socket - to make sure that the
socket is getting 12V DC to light the bulb. Replacing a bulb socket is easy, and commonly done.
Any auto parts dtore should be able to sell you a new socket - its just a matter of cutting out the
old one, and then splicing in the new one. Most shops will use small wire nuts, buried under several
wraps of E-tape (electrical tape).
(3) if bulb AND socket ok, you have the worst problem known to man - a wiring fault. In this case,
you'll want to run a new wire from the flasher module (under the dashboard) to the turn signal.
