The hazard back lights wont quit blinking when car is running even when i pull the fuse on a 2002 buick regal


What fuse are you pulling ?

Hazard Lamps
The hazard warning switch is part of the turn signal switch. The turn signal switch receives battery voltage at all times through the HAZARD SWITCH Fuse. When the hazard switch is placed in the HAZARD position, battery voltage is applied to the hazard lamp/turn signal lamp flasher. The hazard lamp/turn signal lamp flasher sends a turn signal flasher signal to the turn signal switch. The turn signal switch provides all of the turn lamps and turn indicators with the turn signal flasher signal, simultaneously flashing them on and off.

Turn Signal Lamps
The front turn signal lamps are made up of the front park/turn signal lamps and rear turn signal lamps. The front turn signal lamps flash with the rear turn signal lamps when a turn is initiated using the turn signal/multifunction lever. The turn signals will operate only with the ignition switch in the RUN position and will not operate during hazard flasher operation.
When the ignition is turned to the RUN position, battery voltage is supplied to the TURN SIGNAL Fuse. Battery voltage is then applied through the turn signal fuse circuit to the turn signal switch. When the turn signal switch is placed in the LH or RH position, voltage is supplied to the hazard lamp/turn signal lamp flasher. The hazard lamp/turn signal lamp flasher supplies a turn signal flasher signal to the turn signal switch. With the turn signal switch in the LH or RH position the corresponding turn signal indicator, rear turn signal, and front turn signal receive the turn signal switch signal and will flash. The front turn signals receive the turn signal switch signal from the turn signal switch via the BCM. The turn lamps are permanently grounded.

Replace the turn signal switch. Refer to Multifunction, Turn Signal, and Hazard Switch Replacement - On Vehicle in Steering Wheel and Column - Tilt.

Passenger side turn signal flashes faster but dont work even at day runing light, comes on when head lights are on, replace bulb and socket because was melted but stilldoes the same


Turn Signal Lamps
The turn signal lamps may only be activated with the ignition switch in RUN or BULB TEST position. The T/SIG fuse supplies ignition voltage to the turn signal switch. When the turn signal switch is placed in either the left or right position, the turn signal switch sends an ignition voltage to the hazard lamp/turn signal flasher, which sends an on-off signal to the turn signal switch. When the turn signal switch receives the on-off signal it will send that signal to the following lamps on the LH or RH side:
?€¢
The Rear Turn Lamp


?€¢
The Turn Signal Indicator


?€¢
The Sidemarker Lamp


?€¢
The Sideview Mirror (Pontiac Thunder only)

The turn signal switch also sends a separate on-off signal to the Daytime Running Lamps (DRL) control module, which relays the signal to the appropriate front turn signal. The front turn signals are grounded at G101 and G102. The rear turn signals are grounded at G401. The sidemarker lamps are grounded through the corresponding front parklamp.
The sideview mirror turn signals are a bank of LEDs placed behind the mirror glass.
The hazard lamps operate on battery voltage. The HAZARD fuse supplies battery voltage to the turn signal switch. When the hazard switch is pressed, the turn signal switch sends battery voltage to the hazard lamp/turn signal flasher, which sends an on-off signal to the turn signal switch. The turn signal switch send the on-off signal to all the turn signal lamps, causing all the lamps to flash including both IPC turn signal indicators. The hazard lamp/turn signal flasher is grounded at G200.
When the parklamps are ON, the sidemarker lamps receive voltage from the park lamp supply voltage circuit and illuminate. The sidemarker lamp is grounded through the corresponding rear turn signal. When the turn signal switch is place in the left or right hand position, the rear turn signal illuminates and the sidemarker lamp will loose its ground, causing the sidemarker lamp to turn off when the turn signals are on and to illuminate again when the turn signal is off.

02 Buick LeSabre Ltd. Rear flashers work (blinking rapidly), front bulbs stay on, inside indicators also flash rapidly. Replaced control module under the dash. Did not help. What else could it be?


Hi there., when flashers/indicators work rapidly on the dashboard you should check whether it is the same on the actual bulds. Fadt flashing is usually a sign of a bulb failure somewhere. If everything is functioning ok externally I would consult a competent technician for a diagnosis.

My left turn signal started to only work about 50% of the time, it wont work hardly at all now. the right turn signal is fine. When I try to use the left turn signal, there is no dash indicator lights


Hey Bob how's it going ? I have been looking at Chevy service info for your vehicle and this a little on the complex side or that is the way it sounds from the turn signal description !
Turn Signal Lamps
The smart flasher (GMSF) is an automotive flasher designed to accept turn, hazard, and brake inputs. The GMSF will provide corresponding outputs to the exterior lamps and instrument panel turn signal indicator lamps. This lighting system has dedicated lamps for the turn/hazard functions and dedicated lamps for the brake function. The system incorporates the use of flash rates for diagnostics. The flash rate is a calculation of the number of flashes that occur within a 60 second period. This system uses a percentage of on-time to off-time called duty cycle. For the bulb outage condition, the indicator of the vehicle side on which the outage occurs shall assume bulb outage flash rate mode. The opposite side indicator will assume the normal flash rate mode for an input from the non bulb outage side of the vehicle. Hazard warning lamp outage will maintain a normal flash rate as long as 2 or more exterior signaling lamps are functional. During all modes of operation, the IPC will receive the same flash rates and duty cycles that the exterior lamps receive. The IPC will then control the indicators in the cluster. The vehicle operator will be provided with an audible and visual indication of the flasher operation. Below is a table with flash rates and duty cycles:
Are all your bulbs good ?
Operating Condition
Flash Rate
Duty Cycle
Normal
75 to 105 flashes per minute
45% to 55%
Turn Signal Lamp Outage
2 or 3 times faster than normal flash rate
35% to 55%

None of the blinkers work on my 1996 dodge stratus, all bulbs are good as the park lights and flashers work. I have three dead ports in fusebox under hood.


Guessed it's a V6. Trying to sort this out. If setting the headlamp switch to PARK turns on the park filaments of the front park/turn signal lamp and the tail filaments of the rear tail/stop lamps and the separate tail lamps, the park light circuit is good. If 20A fuse 6 in the power distribution center is OK, the combination flasher in the multifunction switch is receiving power. Power is directed to the turn signal lamps by operation of the turn signal/hazard warning switch. If the turn signals are not flashing, the combination switch may have failed or the turn signal flasher part of the combination flasher may have failed. Finally, the hazard warning switch causes the turn signal elements of the front combination park/turn signal lamps and the rear turn lamps to flash.

My blinkers just stay turned on without blinking both left and right, what should I do to fix this?


There should be a flasher fuse for the turn signals, chk. owners manual if you got one, it should have a listing diagram for the fuse panel, or at least show you wear to locate it.

Can't find the flasher relay on a 2008 superduty


It doesn't actually have one this function is incorporated into the smart junction box.
The SJB monitors the multifunction switch position by sending multiple voltage reference signals to the multifunction switch. When the multifunction switch is in the LH or RH TURN positions, or the hazard lamp switch is pressed, that input signal is routed to ground.
When the SJB receives a request for a turn signal or the hazard lamps, the SJB supplies on/off voltage to the appropriate turn lamps.
The timed on/off cycle is determined by the SJB and is set to flash approximately 80 times per minute if both the front and rear turn lamps operate correctly. If an individual turn signal lamp is inoperative, the SJB fast flashes the remaining turn lamp approximately 160 times per minute to indicate to the driver of a bulb outage.
The SJB bulb outage is configurable and can be turned off for the rear lamps. This is to accommodate vehicles that have been upfitted with rear LED lamps in place of the traditional incandescent bulbs.
