Also, have your mechanic check the "Multi-funtion switch" in the steering column. All the turn signal and 4-way flasher circuits run thru this and it can be defective.

Need a diagram for how to find the flasher in a 1999 dodge stratus..it's not in the fuse boxes


Simple method without mystery:
  1. Turn blinker flashers on;
  2. Listen for clicking;
  3. Find source of clicking. It is the flasher. :)
NOTE: Emergency flashers and blinkers usually use a separate flasher unit, but one is close to the other. If your blinkers do not work but your emergency flashers do, find the emergency flasher unit by finding the source of clicking, then locate the blinker flasher nearby. They will ALWAYS be underneath the dashboard on the driver side.

1970 beetle how to fix flashers


1. Do your emergency flashers work?
Check all your fuses, make sure they are getting a good contact.
If your emergency flashers work, it may be a faulty turn signal switch.
If your emergency flashers work that will eliminate the flasher. The one flasher works both turn and emergency signals.

NO THE BLINKER AND EMERGENCY FLASHER ARE TWO SEPERATE UNITS. THEY ARE USUALY UNDER THE DASH, YOU CAN TURN YOU BLINKER ON AND LISTEN FOR A CLICKING TO NARROW DOWN WHERE IT COULD BE LOCATED

All of a sudden my front blinkers started blinking very rapidly. My front emergency flashers work fine. However, neither of my rear blinkers work, nor do my rear emergency flashers work.


You probably have a lamp that is burned out ... when you have only one turn signal light, it reduces the load on the flasher by 50% causing the bi-metal strip to heat at twice the rate as with two lamps.

Turning signals not working all the time


Sounds like the blinker relay. Is the emergency flasher switch on the dash above the radio ? If it is the blinkers relay is the same as the emergency relay. If the blinkers stop working pound on the emergency lights switch and if they start working then replace the emergency lights relay switch cause the blinkers is on the same relay as the emergency lights. My 2001 Grand Am does the same and I just hit the emergency lights switch and they start working again.

Hello Goddard.
First thing is to verify all of the bulbs involved in the turn signal circuit are working. This will include the side marker lights. If they don't ll work the current flow may not be enough to properly activate the flasher.
Next on the list is the flasher unit itself. It is mounted on the bracket near the emergency brake pedal. Replace it, the contacts may be losing continuity and the emergency flashers would draw more current making it work.
Next would be the the signal switch itself. There may be some worn contacts and moving the emergency switch could position the contact point slightly enough to allow continuity.
If you would like more assistance on this leave me a message in "add comments" and I will check back.
I hope your repair goes well for you.

No turn signals or emergency blinkers


Sounds like a multifunction switch, work the emergency flasher button up and down a few times, then attempt to work the turn signals if the signals work then you will need a multifunction switch.

Blinker dont work flasher and other lights work


The turn signals don't work, but the emergency flashers do? If that's the case, replace the flasher, you have 2 flashers, one for emergency (hazard) flasher, and one for the turn signals. It should be on the fuse block under the dash.

Blinkers stopped working


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.
