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.

Why do my turn signals work sometimes and then not other times?

Instead of a flasher relay, GM used a circuit in the flasher module.
I had the same problem. I found the solution on a Pontiac Grand Am forum. This was posted in 2006.."Many Grand Am's had a recall on the hazard switch causing the signal to stop working. Next time it happens turn on then off your hazard lights and see if the turn signals start working again. If so go to a local dealership and see if your car falls under that recall (free fix)."
I ordered one on line for $12.00 or $15.00 ,PartsGeek I think.
Put it in and fixed my problem . Good luck. c19e6e54-281d-4238-b776-03b104c1e1a1.jpg

The car sat for 6 months before i bought it (prev owner passed way) & now the left indicator light doesnt work and the right is intermittant. do i need to replace the whole arm off the steering colum?

It's probably not in the control arm.Try replacing your turn signal relay (about $30 from parts store) This relay should be located under the dash and near the steering column (looks like a big black fuse). Talk to your parts guy when you buy the relay...he may be able to help you locate it.
The relay should fix your problem.

My right turning signal in my 2002 Montero sport

Hi, this is a common problem and can be very annoying the only thing you need to do to solve this problem is to replace the arm you press when you want to make a turn left or right, what happens is that the switch inside wares then it sticks in the one possition you can sometimes get it off by pushing it in slightly as you try turning it to off position but failing that the only option you have is to get the whole indicator arm replaced. Their is no way of repairing these as they are a sealed unit, if you have any breakers yards near to you then you should be able to get one from their for next to nothing other than that you need to ring your local car spares shops and see what best price you can get

2004 Jeep Liberty - Turning signals stopped working completely

Control arm box? Are you referring to the multi-function switch or the directional module under the dash on right side of the steering column. Don't assume just because a component was recently replaced, that it is good test it...quality control is terrible and I've seen many "new" parts not work right out of the box! Also make sure that your dash ground is good.
