You say you replaced turn signal switch, Have you changed the relays for this? Also check chevy recalls as they have had several concerning electrical problems with these cars. The harness can also get corroded as well as the bulb sockets.

The Buick Century uses separate relays for the hazard warning and turn signal functions. The turn signal relay is located on the accelerator pedal bracket, and the 4-way flasher relay is located on the convenience center near the left kick panel. Try switching these two relays with one another to see if your turn signals work instead of your 4-ways.

Have you tried replacing the flasher? They're typically round, and with the fuses under/in the dash. They probably cost 10-15 bucks, usually available at your local autoparts store.

I think that your flasher is bad I believe that the 4-ways flasher is a seperate flasher unit it should be in the fuse box and look like the 4-way flasher , to find the flasher turn on the 4-ways and you can feel it or hear it flashing and lok for the flasher for the turn signals

I dont have a diagram but the brake light switch has to feed the turn signal switch, Either that wire has a bad connection, or the turn signal switch is bad. Jiggle the turn signal lever and see if the brake lights try to work.

2000 Chevy Cavalier brake lights


Yes, if your turn signals in the back use the same filaments as the brakes, the multi-switch must allow the brake signal through when the turn signals are not activated. There are multiple diagrams for your system, so I'm not sure what you have. If you have the light blue wire that goes from the brake switch ul the column to the turn switch, make sure it is getting power when the pedal is pressed. It should go thru the switch as shown in the second diagram below.

Check your fuse first thing. You may also have a bad brake light switch. If the turn signals come on but just will not flash then replace the flasher relay.

2002 chevrolet cavalier, my brake lights, front and rear turn signals and hazard lights are not working


Your Hazard switch is bad. There were a bunch that had faulty soldering connections, and would fail prematurely. This circuit also competes with the turn signals, and the brake lights. Replace the switch with an aftermarket replacement, and it should fix your issue.

No brake lights or turn signals head lights and turns work on the front and i have parking lights all around and all fuses are good


It is most likely your brake light switch. The wiring from the brake light switch goes to the turn signal switch. When the turn signal switch is centered both brake lights are connected, unless the switch is faulty. When the switch is to the left only the right light is connected to the brake light switch and vice versa. A bad switch can cause all kinds of problems with the brake lights as well as the turn signals.
To replace, locate the brake light switch at the top of the brake pedal (on the mounting bracket). Unplug the connector. Loosen the locking nut and remove the switch. Install the switch and adjust the height so the switch activates at the right position. Reconnect the connector and check for proper function.

ALL BREAK LIGHTS NOT WORKING


Have you checked your brake light fuse? If it is good do your rear turn signals work? If you have turn signal and no brake lights it is probably the turn signal switch these are a common problem and your power for your brake lights goes through your turn signal switch. Sometimes it is actually the hazard switch that melts but this can not be serviced alone. If you have no rear turn signals and no break lights it could still be the turn signal switch but is more likely to be a wiring problem in the rear usually trailer wiring T connections. Chiltons has wiring diagrams in there manuals but they are not always accurate. Let me know if I can help you further and please rate.

No rear brake light / turn signals on 2001 Chevy Cavalier


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
