    I had already tried replacing the fuse on my flashers that won't turn off. It did nothing. I have also taken off the battery cable to try to get a system reset and it did not work.

The only way to correct this is to replace the turn signal switch, to do this you must remove the covers from the steering column, the screws that hold them together are located in holes under the bottom of the steering column, I think there are four, they should be Phillips head screws, remove the covers and then remove the 2 screws holding the turn signal switch to the column, disconnect the wiring connector to the switch and remove it, reverse this to install new switch.

LXI. how do I replace flasher?

The Flasher is located: Behind A/C and heater control panel, in center console.



Flashers are located either on the bottom of the fuse block or on a module under the dashboard. They are replaced by simply pulling them straight out. Note that the prongs are arranged in such a way that the flasher must be properly oriented before attempting to install it. Turn the flasher until the orientation of the prongs is correct and simply push it firmly in until the prongs are fully engaged.clink on link to see what flasher look's like.

Where is the flasher unit located

The flasher is located under the dashboard close to the steering column. you have to turn it on to make a clicking sound.... and feel for it... when you touch it you will know it is it... just pull it out. But before you do that....CHECK THE FUSES.

Turn signals stopped working but were working yesterday. Any ideas?

More than likely the electronic turn signal flasher is defective.
  1. Remove the Old Flasher Relay
    • Using your socket wrench, disconnect the negative cable from the car's battery terminal. The negative terminal and cable are identified on the top of the battery using the minus ("--") symbol. Once the cable is disconnected, wrap the metal end completely with the black electrical tape. Lay the cable down and make sure it's not touching any metal surfaces.
    • 2Open the driver side front door and kneel or position yourself so that you're able to see under the dashboard.

    • 3Locate the automotive flasher relay under the dashboard on the right-hand side. The flasher relay is about the same size as an ice cube. It will be held in place by one screw and will have a three-pronged wiring harness connected to it.
    • 4Remove the screw holding the flasher relay in place and slowly lower it from underneath the dashboard.
    • 5Hold the flasher relay in one hand, and with the other hand gently disconnect the wiring harness plug from the relay. Never separate the flasher relay by pulling the harness off by the wires, always hold the plastic harness plug itself.
    Install the New Flasher Relay
    • 6Inspect the new flasher relay to make sure it isn't damaged. Hold the new flasher relay and the old one side by side and compare them, ensuring that they are exactly the same.
    • 7Carefully plug the wiring harness connector into the new flasher relay. Make sure no other wires are intertwined as you raise the flasher and harness back into position under the dashboard.
    • 8Secure the flasher relay by returning its mounting screw.
    • 9Unwrap the negative battery cable's connector and reattach it to the car's battery terminal. Turn the power on or start your car and test out the new flasher relay to make sure it's working properly

Why dont headlights come on an ford f 250

Hazard and turn signals usually use separate flashers, switch the flashers to see if turn signals work and hazards don't, if so replace the flasher

you need to replace the blinker flasher unit

it is different from the hazard unit

they cost about 4 bucks

the flasher unit is the big round thing in the fuse panel in the dashboard

How to change flasher unit 0n 2002 Saturn L-series

WARNING The flasher unit for turn signals should not be switched with a flasher unit for the hazard lights. To check the filaments of all of the turn signal bulbs and the brake lights, turn on the hazard flashers and walk around the car.
A flasher can be located in the fuse panel, under the dash in the wiring loom, in a glove box, under the hood, or somewhere else.
f36-02.jpg A fuse panel. Most flashers are located under the dashboard on the driver's side. When working properly, a flasher is easy to locate because it makes a ticking sound. When it is not functioning, a service manual may be needed to help locate it. Lighting company catalogs generally have pages listing the location of flashers.
To replace a flasher:
  • A flasher features two or three prongs that plug into a socket.
  • Just pull the flasher out of the socket and replace it with a new one.

Where is the flasher located

there are most likely two, plugged into a fuse panel. there are most likely two fuse panels, a small one with a few large fuses under the hood and another larger panel with many small fuses inside under the dashboard. if you pull out and read your owners manual, you will find its exact location. replacement owners manuals can be had on eBay. the two flasher units are generally the same part and can be swapped. so if you think your turn signal flasher is bad just swap in the emergency flasher. if they then work, go buy another flasher unit, if they do not work then you have a problem elsewhere.

No hazard or turning signal

check fuses. If OK, replace flasher unit. the flasher is a cylinder-shaped devide under your dashboard below the instrument panel, left of the steeringcolumn. It should pull straight out of the connector. You can buy a new one at the parts store and even at WALMART, etc. Make sure to get the one that fits your car--take the old one with you.

Turn signal or emergency flashers wont work. parts store says they cant find a flasher for them. I checked the turn signal fuse and its good. Any ideas?

The flasher is located above the fuse panel. The relays are built into the switch itself. They have a recall on the 4 way flasher switch because it is faulty and causes blinkers not to turn on. Very common Malibu and other Gm problem
