I have a 1997 pontiac grand am gt and the hazards and blinkers quit working at the same thing. I checked the fuses, nothing. I replaced the blinker switch assembly and it still doesn't work.

There are separate fuses for the turn signals and blinkers, but you should check both of them just to see if they're good.

You may have a burnt out turn signal bulb as well. I know that this sounds like an obvious answer, but a single bulb can sometimes disable the entire system because of the way that some flashers operate.

You could also have a defective turn signal/hazard light flasher. This is located under the dash board on the driver's side between the steering column and the door. You have to remove the sound insulation/kick panel (the cover on the bottom of the dash board) to reach the flasher (it is easy to remove - I don't think you even need tools).

Flasher and fuses are usually under the dash next to the drivers left knee.
Hope this helps.

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.

Turn signals


Your hazards are run off of a different circuit your blinker fuse is probably blown. Check your fuses.

Try the hazard switch.Do all the blinkers work?This may be a loose connection to the lamp.The window and lock system are on seperate circuits so very unlikely they are related.There is a seperate relay for the blinker and hazards,so a single blinker not working is either bulb or wiring.Widows are operated by motor so check the fuse, wires and and actuating switch. (Door trims off).Also check its not just jammed.Locks,check fuses,switch wires for damage or looseness and the actuator is working.Check the actu. rods are not loose are bent.(need the door trims off for this).Quite a few different things but hope this helps

Chicking noise on pontiac.


You'll have to replace the blinker arm assembly. I had the same issue with my '99 GT. It turned out that a couple of the electrical traces had arced and fused together. You might be able to fix it yourself if you're electricly inclined. Otherwise it's only a couple of screws to pull off the top cover and then another for the blinker/wiper arm assembly.

No blinkers or hazards...


Check the fuses in the fuse panel area. Check to see that the bulbs are good. Good Luck, Jim
