I assume you know the current combination and can open it. To set the combination to a number code of your choice you must first remove the red plastic guard over the yellow tab next to the combination dials. Push the glove box release lever to the right to open the glove box. To change the combination:
1. With the glovebox open, hold the release to the right and slide the yellow tab up. This locks the release open and permits you to reset the code.
2.After resetting the code, write it down in case you forget it.
3. Slide the yellow tab down and the release will return to the closed position.
4. Close the glove box and move the dials off the code you set to lock it.
This is all from the 89 Pontiac Owners Manual. Good luck, hope it works.

SOURCE: Glove box combination lost

It can be pretty easy to do.
You'll need a bright flash light and a small flat head screw driver.
Turn on your flash light and shine it directly onto the dials, take your small screw driver and push the dial to one side or the other, usally push it to the left. 
Yes, you won't have a lot of room to move it, but you should have just enough to see a line, or a groove. If you don't see a groove turn the dial to another number until you are able to see a line, or groove.
When you see a groove you are on the correct number, then do the same to the other ones, then push the button to open it up.
Example. (0)(0)(0)     (0)(2)-(0)     (1)-(2)-(0)     (1)-(2)-(3)-
Good luck.

I would stop by your local locksmith shop and I am sure for 5 to 10 bucks they could get it open for you without any damage.

SOURCE: I bought a 92 grand prix and it has a combination

The only thing I can say is ask the people you bought it from. If they don't know, then the only thing you can really do is pry it open.

Thankfully when I bought mine, the guy who sold it to me knew the combination.

I bought a 92 grand prix and it has a combination lock on the glove box, how do I find out the combination?


Usually the owner never changed the factory combo (#000). I had no such luck and had to pry the latch and manually open the catch with a piece of thin metal. then I took the lock out and looked for a spaced cog on each tumbler(from the backside). After aligning them in a row, I the rotated all three together up a couple positions to align the combination to it's proper location.

1998 GMC Jimmy with "turn signal" clicking behind glove box


I have a 1998 GMC Jimmy SLT with same exact problem. I just determined exactly what it is today.
Here is what you should do:

1) Open glove box

2) Notice the u-shape mechanism that prevents the glove box from folding all the way down. (located near top left corner of OPEN glove box

3) Empty contents of glove box and then push up on U-shape and open glove box so that it hangs freely

4) Notice the wiring harness with a bolt in middle of it (located behind glove box)

5) To the right of the wiring harness is a small black box with a zip tie over it. This is the source of your problem. Just slide the zip tie to the right so that the box can then be pulled out.

This is your combination flasher for turn and hazard signals. My signals still worked while this annoying little thing kept clicking. The model # is GM11516051. You can find one on e-bay for at least 1/2 the price of the dealer's.

Change flasher relay on Jeep Grand Cherokee 2007


If you are looking for the old style flasher, it's not there. It's now called a combination flasher module (more $$) and usually it's on the right side of the column under dash. If you buy one first, at least you will know what it looks like.
