Just a thought, Did you have the battery go dead or did you change the battery? Subaru has a theft device under dash on left by your knee, that needs to be reset. It is a 4" x4" x1" box with a small wire lead and button on end. Just turn ignition on and press the button for a few seconds and it will reset. That should stop your flashers. Hope this helps and have a great day.

Where is the turn signal flasher unit on my 1989 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme


Should be under the dash just to the left of the steering column, sometimes, if you have 2 flashers, you can turn on the emergency flashers and listen and feel for the click, your turn signal flasher is usually right next to the emergency flasher.

Why does my emergency flasher turn on when i turn on the right direction signal


hello,
it sounds like the combination switch is going bad and you have to replace the unit which is the part that the turn signals and the e-flasher is and that is in the steering column under the steering wheel and horn. the other is that you have a short in the wiring some were and a electric shop or a good tech should take a look at.

My turn signals and emergency flashers work some time where is the turn signal flasher relay located and how do you detach it?


For 1998 Ford Truck Explorer 4WD 4.0L EFI SOHC 6cyl the Flasher is located in front seating area, driver side, behind dash, mounted on steering column.

Both the turn signal flasher and the hazard warning flasher are mounted on the fuse panel on the truck. To gain access to the fuse panel, remove the cover from the lower edge of the instrument panel below the steering column. First remove the two fasteners from the lower edge of the cover. Then pull the cover downward until the spring clips disengage from the instrument panel.

The turn signal flasher unit is mounted on the front of the fuse panel, and the hazard warning flasher is mounted on the rear of the fuse panel.

Hope helps.

I'm looking for the turn signal flasher unit on a 1993 Buick LeSabre. I found the 4-way flasher which is clipped onto a support by the steering column but can't find the turn signal flasher. I bought a new...


The turn signal flasher is above the emergency brake petal and about 6 inches above, hid by a wiring harness. It is in a clip so pull it out and leave the wire hang to replace the new flasher. If you locate the fuse box drop it down by releasing the two metal clips left and right , the flasher will be directly above the left side of the panel.
