Question about 2004 Pontiac Grand Am

1 Answer

Can you tell me where to find the flashers? I had my emergency flashers on when I blew a tire in the desert. After I changed the tire, they were no longer flashing. I checked the fuse panel on the left side of the dash and the small fuses were fine, Where are the flasher relay switches? I dont have an owners manuel to look it up. Thanks. Josie

Flashers on GM cars are found under the dash. You have to remove the screwed on plastic panels to reveal the electronics underneath.

It should look like a 1.2" cylindrical metal 'flasher.'

You can get the right one by looking it up in a book at the auto parts store and searching for the right model number.

I recommend getting the electronic version of the flasher so it will not wear out as quickly as the standard one from GM which is mechanical and not electronic solid state.

Good luck finding it because it can be in a very dark part of the under dash part, sometimes hidden out of plain view.

Sometimes there are two flashers, one for the turn signals, and one for the hazard flashers. They can be located in different areas.

Tip: When you actually search for the flasher, turn the turn signals on and feel the barrel of the flasher you first see to see if you can feel hit ticking. If you can, then you found the turn signal flasher.

The other hazard flasher must be located further into the area under the dashboard and above the plastic panel you removed.

Good luck on this fix.

ELECTRICAL PROBLEMS WITH TURN SIGNALS,EMERGENCY FLASHERS,PARKING LIGHTS


this car have DRL? day light running lamps?>? option
or manditory in canada. do tell !

so the fuses blew again, and you didnt look?
id fix either park/ hazzards.first
both work with key in pockets for EMERANGACY uses, even
when 100 miles from car, keys in pocket, by DESIGN. (all cars)
so due to that fact its a very simple system.
but in 2007, they makers do all they can to make it more complex
than ever necessary, (saves money with copper)
the 2 features are hot all the time, that means they wire to the
battery directly with ONLY a fuse, to stop fires.
so id bet it blew the fuse (got trailer wiring hacks in back>?) collision damage not fixed right>?
do you have the factory trailer option?????

park seems best., easier
it has 2 fuses to the rear.
the PARK relay closes, and powers the fuse and then lamps.
so both cant blow. left and right are Fuse 7 and 9
the BCM , (body brain puter) energizes the park relay
so seems its not.
my guess is the BCM has lost power.

in the dealer they can scan for BCM errors. and say fast what is wrong.

the list for PARK dead.
1. Ineffective or missing relay. 1. Test and replace park lamp relay if required. 2. Ineffective control circuit. 2. Test and repair open park lamp relay control circuit if required. 3. Ineffective switch. 3. Test and replace multi-function switch if required. 4. Ineffective BCM inputs or outputs. 4. Use a diagnostic scan tool to test the BCM inputs and outputs. Refer to the appropriate diagnostic information.
here is my list
all park lamps burned out, (no way) but had it happen in 1980.....ask how? (alternator went nuts to 30v)
relay park missing or bad. (pray)
the park switch( in combo-mult- section switch is bad) nah.
The combo failed to tell BCM of this state change (comm fails)
the BCM failed to hear the command.
the BCM is bad or lost power (fuses)
the BCM failed to close the park relay.

the BCM has 3 power fuses. fues 34 is hot all time, id bet that fuse
allows the BCM to turn on parks, at any time.
others are key power, fuse 22, and 13. to BCM

the back unlocks doors, and does so via FOBs. car locked and parked and no key in ignition, so again, fuse 34 rears ugly head

i hang hat on 34, but got tired, if reading 50 pages of power distrabution and comms.
it is very complex car, and one of the first cars to do this....

No brake lights or emergency flashers. Changed


Try adjusting the brake light switch on the brake pedal.

The flashers have a relay in the circuit, test it and see what you get . The flasher switch may be the culprit also. By pass the switch with a pair of jumper wires and see if flashers work.

Fuse location for directional and emergency signal


The TS flasher and 4 way flasher use different fuses. I'd test the flasher assembly located near the fuse box under the dash. One blown fuse won't disable both but a bad flasher module could,

Does alarm system have a fuse and where is the location. Ticking noise sounds like emergency flasher is on.


sounds like the multi function switch which controls wipers, turn signals and emergency flashers. just had mine replaced by dealer. first they changed the flasher switch but the noise came back. cant tell you how much they charge because it was covered with an extended warranty.

99 Dodge Dakota won't start after using emergency flashers


Hi my name is Allen!
It sounds like you may have a bad Ignition swith or when you used the flashers it some how blew the main Ignition fuse.

By saying you tried to jump it, I'm assuming the engine and starter does not have any power at all, in other words everything is dead.

If you need further asistance you may contact me through FixYa!

Changing emergency flasher switch


Disconnect the battery for 1 hour before you start and the air bag will be safe, be very careful when removing it, they are still an explosive device.
