Hi,
Remove the relay and check the socket for power, check the socket also for a good vehicle earth.
Check operation of the relay with the indicators and also the operation of hazards.
If ther relay is working ok (clicking), check supply to it and from it for the indicators.
Check vehicle earth for indicators.

It is very likely there may be a fault with a hazard switch, as this interrupts the supply and takes-over the command of the indicators when activated.
This usually has a dedicated relay too, so this needs checking for correct operation also.
You should find the problem by following this.
Thank you for using Fixya.

    When you pull the relay, you should be able to identify what the pins do either printed on the relay or look up online.

    There will be the coil (two contacts) that should have a low ohms reading with a meter, one or more open contacts, and one or more closed contacts.



    They say a diagram is worth a thousand words, so just google for the relay reference.



    Once you find the pin-out, you should check the socket for power to the coil when the switch is on.



    It's just a question of methodically going through the system checking for a supply and correct operation of major components.



    As the Relay is a major component of this system - I would try fitting a new one as a first attempt to fix. They are fairly cheap, and could save a few hours checking.

Hi Cherokee...
Keepo in mind that three things make the engine run: air, fuel and spark.

One or more of those is not present and the engine stops. Pull a plug wire off, put a screwdriver in the end, have a friend turn over the engine while you hold the screwdriver near a metal part of the engine (don't touch the wire or screwdriver) look to see if there is a blueish white spark. If no then u have to trouble shoot the ignition.

If yes, take off the air filter, spray some starter fluid in the air entrance and try to start.

If it starts you have a fuel problem. Also, check that, if the car has high mileage the timing belt could have broke.

Hope this help; tell us news.

    Sorry, I was thinking in other problem; You check the FLASHERS? They are located (flashers) either on the bottom of the fuse block or on a
    module under the dash. 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.



    Power distribution component identification (underhood)


    Also, in the interior fuses, check the position 3, 10AMP for turn signal...

    Good luck.

    There is a turn signal flasher relay and hazard flasher relay. They are
    located somewhere under the dash. Where I could not say. You just have
    to look for them. Look in your owner's manual, and it may list the
    location. If not go to www.autozone.com and use the component location
    tool.

    To use the self-powered test light or a multimeter to check for open
    circuits, first isolate the circuit from the vehicle's 12 volt power
    source by disconnecting the battery or wiring harness connector. Connect
    the test light or ohmmeter ground clip to a good ground and probe
    sections of the circuit sequentially with the test light. (start from
    either end of the circuit). If the light is out/or there is infinite
    resistance, the open is between the probe and the circuit ground. If the
    light is on/or the meter shows continuity, the open is between the
    probe and end of the circuit toward the power source.

    According to the Haynes manual for the car, the turn signal and hazard
    flasher is located under the dash, positioned between the fuse
    (junction) block and the brake pedal clipped to the underside of the A/C
    duct. That is probably the reason for your problem. I don't see a test
    ot its function but it is likely needing to be replaced. You might check
    the black ground wire at the point where it grounds to the body on the
    left cowl, I believe, or test that it reads close to 0 ohms from that
    wire at the flasher to a body ground point to verify the ground.

    Good luck.

My car signal stop funtion


have you checked the turn signal relay! It is above your left leg under the fuse access. under dash. do your emergency flashers work, because the relay is a combination relay for e-flashers and turn signals. if the flasher unit is ok, you may have a bad bulb or a short to ground.

Turn signals stopped working. Fuses are all ok,


sounds like the flasher can might have stopped working, you will need to get it replaced, it regulates the indicaters to blink, when it goes the circuit is gone, time for replacing id say. check the relays in the main fuse box under the bonnet first, try swapping the relay with another one like the horn relay just to test that first.
