SOURCE: Turn signal/ Emergency Flasher

yes happens all the time.  I've had to replace mine like many other vette owners.  Order it from gmpartsdirect.com and search vette forums for how to replace hazard switch.  You should find the directions on how to replace it without taking apart the whole dash.  Not very diffiecult.

SOURCE: flasher or turn signal switch

When you select left or right do any of the bulbs come on? If you select left check front and back left side if one of the bulbs did not come on the flasher will not work. Change the bulb that is out. Same with the right. If the fuse for the turn signal is good (check fuse or replace do not use visual, some appear to be good but are not).
The emergency flasher is different from the turn signal flasher. Look at manual for location of turn signal flasher. If you manually lift and lower turn signal control you may hear a clicking under the dash to locate the flasher.

I have replaced the combination switch and the flasher on my 2001 Kia spectra and the turn signals still don't work. The emergency flashers work but not the turn signals..what am I missing?


Check the fuses. And some cars have a separate flasher for the turn signals and separate flasher for the hazards. Also make sure the correct bulbs are in your lights. Incorrect bulbs can cause the flasher to take a long time to kick in

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.

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.

Blinkers quit working


If neither the emerg. flashers nor turn signal work then it's the relay will cost $25-$30. the relay is all part of the emerg. flasher button. be very careful popping it out so you don't ruin the finish on the dash. remove one of the cover plates just below it will make it a little easier. good luck

Check the flasher under the dash to the left of the steering column. It's got about 8 or 10 wires plugged into it.
