SOURCE: Flashers Won't work

The turn signal flasher is in a clip attached to the base of the steering column support inside the car. That would put it just about in front of your knees in the drivers seat, up under the bottom edge of the knee panel. I hope this helps you.

The turn signal flasher is mounted in a clip on the right side of the steering column support bracket. The hazard flasher is located in the component center, under the instrument panel, on the right side. Replace the flasher by unplugging the old one and plugging in the new one.

SOURCE: I have a 2005 Pontiac G6 that the hazard flashers don't work.

I'm not sure but alot of other gm models have the flasher built into the hazard switch. Gm has a real problem with this style of switch/flasher. I've replaced lots of them, but I'm not sure if it is the same design and Impala, Montecarlo, and malibu, but I bet it is.

The flashers are located behind the instrument panel trim, roughly between the base of the steering wheel and the ashtray, just to the left of the car lighter. To access the flashers, you need to at least loosen the lower instrument panel trim. Just under the steering column there are two screws with star heads. One to the left of the column and one to the right. You need to remove both of these screws. You will need to remove your ashtray. On the upper left corner of the hole left by removing the ashtray is a 9/32 hex head screw. You need to remove it. Once these three screws are removed you should be able to pull down on this portion of trim under your instrument cluster. When you do this it may cause trim around your instrument cluster to loosen that you can just pop back into place with your hand. You won't need to pull down to far on this trim piece as there are still some screws holding the bottom. You should be able to pull it down far enough to see the flasher units behind and just to the left of the cigarette lighter. There are two flasher units and I found that the one on the right is for the turn signals.On the left the other is for the hazard flashers. It may be a hand scraping experience to replace the flasher but it beats paying someone to do it for you. They are easy to recognize because the are silver and round metallic plug ins. The flasher unit on the left is for the emergency flashers and the one on the right is for turn signals. You can place the emergency flasher unit into the slot the turn signal unit belongs until you get a replacement. These flasher units are pretty cheap.

How do you locate and test flasher relay on a 2006 Chevy Equinox? Turn signals and hazards stopped working after changing audio system. Fuses test good. Thank you, Mike

Did you change any wiring , tap into any wiring ? There is no flasher relay on your vehicle . It controlled by the BCM !
Turn Signal/Hazard Lamps
The body control module (BCM) is responsible for controlling the turn signals and hazard lamps. When the turn signal switch is placed in either the left turn or right turn position, the BCM receives a signal from the turn signal switch. The BCM then sends an on-off voltage signal to either the left or right turn signals and their instrument panel cluster (IPC) indicator. When the hazard switch is pressed, the BCM receives a signal from the hazard switch. The BCM then will send an on-off voltage signal to all the turn signal lamps. All the turn signal lamps will flash including both IPC turn signal indicators.
Your best bet , take it to a qualified repair ! We on here have no clue what you did . On this newer vehicles ,if you know nothing about automotive electronics you really should take to a professional

How do I find emergency flasher unit on my 1988bronco 2?

most vehicle use the flasher unit as an emergency flasher light. By pressing the hazard light switch, it powers the flasher unit and connects all flashers together. If it has a light module , have it checked out or check the hazard switch itself.

Where to find the turn signal flasher?

Unfortunately Nissan in it's infinite wisdom decided that it should tie the turn signal flasher and hazard flasher which are useally combined but on an independant circuitwhich only made the front and rear turn signal lights flash as well as the indicator lights in your dash telling you which direction you had selected. They were in no way related to any other circuits, have incorporated these into the body control module. Consequently if you don't have a flasher, you have to buy a body control module. First try operating the hazard flasher mode. It will work even if there ar some bulbs blown. If you have one blown bulb a flasher may operate slower on that side or not at all depending on it's design. Try the other direction if it doesn't work in that direction either, it's probably the flasher or in this case body control module.

Where is the turn signal relay located

Hi Bernard:
The FLASHER is located under the driver dash it is a round fuse (it's located adjecent to the fuse block, and it's square, yellow in color).

Also, I suggtes to check for power at the junction box under the dash at terminals 1 and 6 with the combination flasher removed. Then check with a powered test lamp if test lamp lights pin 7 when signaling left and pin 8 when signaling to the right.

If the test results are correct, replace the Combination Flasher/DRL (Daytime Running Lights) module.


Gain access to the multifunction switch connector. Locate the Light Blue/Yellow wire and ground it. This should activate the right side turn signals. Locate the Light Blue/White wire and ground it. This should activate the left side turn signals. If both sides do work, the problem is in the multifunction switch. Verify the Black wire in the same connector is grounded at all times. If so, replace the multifunction switch.



Here is some reading on how the system works.

The Combination Flasher/DRL is a module providing turn signal, hazard warning, and daytime running light functions (for Canadian vehicles), and has been designed with internal relays to take advantage of low current switching requirements in the vehicle. It is plugged into the junction block at positions three and four, where all wiring associated with its operation is terminated. The junction block is adjacent to and left of the steering column of the vehicle.

On vehicles built for use in the United States, only position four is used. Vehicles built for use in Canada utilize both positions three and four.

To gain access to the device, remove the lower steering column cover and knee blocker.

The combination-flasher/DRL may be operated in its hazard warning mode either with or without the ignition circuit being active. However, in order to operate in the turn signal mode or the DRL mode, the ignition circuit must be completed to the module.

While the combination-flasher portion is idle, there is no current drawn through the module. The device does not become active in the turn signal or hazard warning modes until a signal ground circuit is supplied to either of the turn signal inputs or the hazard warning input. With the ignition OFF, there is no current drawn through the module.

While the ignition is ON, the front turn signal filaments are illuminated steadily thus providing the DRL function. The DRL function may be inhibited by applying a signal ground input from either the park brake circuit or the headlamp relay activation circuit.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I will appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

2001 kia rio turn signals wont work? relay has been replaced and fuse is not the problem. the turn signals will blink up to 3 times then turn off. the hazards are doing the same thing. what should I do?

What about the flasher? Sounds like your turn and hazard are one and the same flasher unit. It would be located under dash, possibly on your fuse box.

How to locate and replace the flasher relay. the turn signals and hazard lights wont work.

The flasher module is located behind the left side of the dash. (See Picture below)
On your vehicle, the power for both the turn signals and the hazard flashers goes through the hazard switch.
The symptoms you are describing can be caused by the flasher module, however, it could also be caused by the hazard switch.
