After the battery and cables, look for either main fuse burned out or a fusible link burned out. Usually from the + terminal you have a big red cable that goes to the starter. Attached to the big red cable is a smaller (but still big) red cable that goes to the fuse/relay box. If you have a fusible link, it is in the smaller red cable. If you have a main fuse it is in the fuse/relay box.

Start with battery condition and charge. Is the battery in good working order. Are the battery cables clean and tight?

SOURCE: 97 Chevy truck blinkers not working but hazards do

Try replacing the Flasher first before spending to much money for a possible simple fix. If it's not your flasher then it could be the turn signal leaver.
Ok, this may seem stupid, but that's what they did to the blazer. They set the flasher near the middle and under the center console behind the radio.


It's to the left of the radio right behind the dash. The hazard flasher and the turn signal flasher are side by side.  It right next to the Cig lighter behind the panel. They do mark the turn signal from the hazard flasher on the plastic behind them. Turn is on the right.

Good luck and hope this helps.

SOURCE: hazard and blinkers went out at same time fuse is good

There'll be a unit under your dash near the steering column called the electronic flasher module that controls your blinkers and hazards. Sounds like the module broke

SOURCE: Blinker issues

These are two seperate issues:

the light staying on solid green indicates a bulb blown at either the front or rear, this could also be a bad ground connection but usually is a bulb issue. If you replace the bulb, be sure to use bulb grease to seal our moisture.

As far as the signal arm returning to neutral and cancelling the signal, that is controlled by a part within the steering wheel itself, and could just be worn. It's a Plastic/Nylon piece that pushes the signal arm manually when you turn the steering wheel sufficiently. That would be a dealer part, or something purchased from a salvage vehicle.

good luck

I have a 96 aurora, headlights brake lights, blinkers,and hazards work but taillights and dash lights went out. if car sits for awhile (day-week) lights work again untill blinker is turned on then they go...


There's a running light controller under the dash next to the steering collum that cost a little over $100. It fails and it's the only way to fix it right and it might happen again too.

Signal lights will work sometimes, but not others. Emergency flashers still work all the time.


The signal lights and hazard flashers work off of separate plug in modules generally easy to get to under the dash behind the steering wheel area. With the blinkers on you can touch the module and feel the clicking inside. Look for a black or blue square boxy looking thing with three or two terminals coming out of it, about the size of a golf ball. One will be for hazards and one for blinkers. Ask at the parts store for the turn signal blinker module and then replace either one first to test to see if it corrects the problem and if it doesn't, put the old module back in place and replace the other with the new one (if they appear identical - interchangeable).

97 oldsmobile regency starter


Check fusable links in your battery cable and starter wires. Do you have power at the starter where the positive cable attaches? Your battery is good? Do you have any power anywhere else?
