OK, the emergency 4 way flashers have a different flasher than the left and right turn signals.

If you remove the plastic cover underneath the dash, you should be able to hear and feel the flasher clicking when the 4 way flasher is working.

The other flasher goes to the turn signals. It may take some effort to reach up and see up there at the same time.

It's a little round metal mechanical electrical device from the factory, and you can replace it with an 'electronic' one that is made of plastic that will last much longer, probably for the life of the car.

You can buy one from your local parts store for your 1999 Buick Lesabre custom by looking it up in the book, or having a sales person provide it for you.

The thing that makes me wonder though, is that usually when the flasher goes bad, it won't flash very fast, and also the lights will light but not blink, if the flasher is removed from the circuit.

But, I would try to replace the flasher first.

The first item to check 1999 Buick Lesabre 3.8L SFI OHV 6cyl is the FLASHER units; the Flasher is located under the left hand of the instrument panel. Sound like a bad or dead flasher.

Remove the lower cover of the dash on the driver side. Just pull the flasher straight out.

Hope helps.

    Keep in mind that the Emergency Flasher is different from the Turn Signal Flasher.

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.

Fast flashing turn signals


I would change out the turn signal bulb on the right front. A blown bulb can cause the fast flash issue. The signals staying on is not related to the bulb being blown. That is most likely a problem with the multifunction switch, the knob you use to signal.

1999 buick lesabre my right signal doesnt blink it stays solid , my left turn signal blinks fine i have to manually blink the right side every turn , i put the hazard lights on and the front left and right...


The easiest thing for you to do would be to replace the bulbs that are on that circuit. You should have one or two bulbs with a double filament, one for the brake and turn signal and one for the tail light.
If that does not fix the problem, someone will need to check the circuit for power from the turn signal switch. It takes all of the lights on one side to make the turn signal flash.

Turn signals flashing rapidly


This fast flash is caused by a burnt out bulb in the front or rear.
