Can't find the location of the flasher module for turn signals

I bought the replacement flasher module from NAPA (my problem is flashers sometimes work, sometimes don't), but can not find where the flasher is located.....under dash, near fuse box, ??? I have looked all over the car in the ususal places for such modules. No Cilton available to tell me and NAPA has no clue. Don't want to go to service center to be charged for popping in a module.

Are you sure they gave you the right one??? On the 2002 the turn signal flasher is apart of the hazard too.
Remove Hazard/cruise bezel on front of dash and be very careful as it breaks easily. Remove the center air conditioning vent in the dash. The vent is held in the dash by (4) PLASTIC hooks. Two on top and two on the bottom. THe top left hook is almost directly above the left vent adjustment tab on the louver and the bottom left hook is in about the same spot below. The top and bottom right hand hooks are above and below the right louver adjustment tab similar to the left side. They break easily!!!
After removing the vent you will be able to see the Hazard/cruise control retainer. This retainer is made from black plastic and has (2) rather large flaps on the left and right side of the hazard switch which is in the top part of the carrier. Simply squeeze BOTH together and the whole thing will fall out behind the dash.

Both the switches have the usual electrical connections. The hazard switch has a white tab on the right side that is depressed to free the connector. The cruise switch has a green lift tab to free the connector. You can now remove the carrier with both switches.

The hazard switch is in a green sleeve which must be removed from the black group carrier. Figures doesn't it! to do that depress the green tabs on the sides of the sleeve to get it out, I had to break the tabs off to do that. Do not worry about breaking the tabs since the new part includes this sleeve. The new part from GM at the dealer cost 71.86 as of 10/27/08.

Now replace the faulty switch and reassemble. If you have the part in hand BEFORE you start this should be a 30 minute job.

Another comment if the turn signals do not work but the cornering lights do then try this first. The other thing would be a bad turn signal leaver on the column and i believe that's around $250.00 at the dealer, going to be less at Auto Zone or the Salvage Yards.

Good luck and Hope this helps. Keep me posted be glad to help

LXI. how do I replace flasher?


The Flasher is located: Behind A/C and heater control panel, in center console.

Flashers

Print
REPLACEMENT

Flashers are located either on the bottom of the fuse block or on a module under the dashboard. They are replaced by simply pulling them straight out. Note that the prongs are arranged in such a way that the flasher must be properly oriented before attempting to install it. Turn the flasher until the orientation of the prongs is correct and simply push it firmly in until the prongs are fully engaged.clink on link to see what flasher look's like.

Replace the flasher module is what I'd do.
Turn signal flasher location Remove panel covering fuse box, next remove the screw holding the heater duct work extension, with the duct work removed you can reach the flasher box cover by reaching up under the dash, remove cover from the box, then remove the flasher, the heavy duty replacement flasher is "taller" and the cover will not fit over it, reverse to close

Signal lamps do not light or blink when lever engaged. 4-way flashers do work.


It could be that one of the flasher module for the turn signals is bad. There should be 2 flasher modules: one for turn signals, and one for four way flashers. Check you vehicles manual for a location on the flasher modules, or Google a query like "Location of turn signal flasher module on a *Year Make Model*". After you locate them, it should be as simple as going to an auto parts store and asking them for a replacement module. If that doesn't work, I could be the switch in the dashboard, or a more complex wiring problem. Make sure you check all of your fuses too. I would say that if you cant fix it by replacing the flasher module, you should take it to a mechanic because it is very easy to destroy wiring in your car.

Where is the turn signal flasher located?


You more likely have a bulb that is no good. The next time your signals aren't working, pull over and check to see which bulb isn't working. Make sure the turn signal is on while checking. It should only be the left or right. Not both. Sometimes you can see the blown bulb with the hazards on depending on your model vehicle. Simply check the bulb thats not blinking for a tight fit. Then replace it if thats not the cure.

2005 Malibu Classic Hazard Module replacement


The hardest part is finding it. With your key on give a left or right turn signal. Try to listen and pinpoint the clicking of the turn signal flasher. Once you locate the turn signal flasher, your hazard flasher will look just like this and should be mounted nearby, typically next to it. The flasher simply pulls out and the new one just pushes in.

1994 devilles flasher location


Turn signal flasher module is behind dash left of steering column near chime module. I have a 94 Seville and I had that same problem you need a Turn Signal Flasher Moduel, I forgot the proper term for it but I had to get mine replaced too. When I hit the signals to turn the side light would come on but the signal light wouldn't. Its a little box you get from Cadillac it only cost like $20 - $25 and you get it installed and trust. It'll work again. I just got mine done this week and my car now has turn signals again.

Your F--150 has 2 flashers, emergency and turn signal. Both are mounted on the fuse block under the dash. The turn signal flasher is mounted on the front of the fuse panel, the emergency flasher is mounted on the rear of the fuse panel. so replace the turn signal flasher should solve the problem. Let me know how it goes.

Left and right turn signal do not flash. the emergency flasher do. how do i replace the flasher for the turn signal on a 1999 cadillac deville.


Take off the black plastic cover under the dash above the brake pedal, 2 9/32 screws hold the front edge to the bottom of the dash. The flasher is located behind the dash above the parking brake. it has a metal clip holding it to the dash about behind the trunk release button. You have to reach around with your hand to find it as it is hard to see. Once you unclip it you can pull it down to unplug it. I just did this job, once you find it it's easy. Napa carries the replacement flasher $13.19. Good luck!!
