Question about 2001 Chevrolet Impala

2 Answers

I am having a problem with my emergency flashers on my 2001 chevrolet impala, when i press the button for them to come on they work fine, but when I press the button for them to go off they go off but the blinking noise remains behind. It keeps on making the blinking noise even when the emergency flashers are off. When i turn my key off it goes off but when I turn my key on it comes on again. The lights are off but the sound it still there.

There could be several causes for this problem. The first would be a faulty flasher switch. These switch do fail can be in the off position and still have one contact causing the flasher unit to click.
The second cause could just be a bad flasher unit. The flasher unit is located under the dash near you left knee just above the fuse panel.
If you turn the flashers on you should be able to located it under the dash by sound.
You can simply remove this to see if the clicking stops. But once removed you will not have turn signals. So i would suggest you purchase a new flasher unit, there are inexpensive and always good to have one around.
If after replacing the flasher unit you still have this issue I would test the flasher switch on the dash with a ohm meter or a volt meter to ensure that once it is off you do not have any voltage traveling through the switch. If the switch still has voltage on both sides after turning it off you will need to replace the switch.
It could also be a short, but this is not very likely.

Good Evening Faith. General motors had problems with thier combination hazard switch. The reason it is called a combination hazard switch is because it is also your turn signal and hazard flasher. On the Oldsmobile Alero, pontiac grand am there was a recall, as far as the impalas and monte carlos I cannot say for certain. Your local parts house (autozone, Advanced, Oreilleys) should have them or be able to order it. That should correct your problem. Hope this helps.

Why does 2000 impala turn signals stop working?

I am told it is a relay in emergency flasher circuit.

The quick fix is to activate emergency flashers just for a few cylcles , a minute or two after car has been running. The directionals will work fine for the duration of that ride.

I have heard of peolple remvoving trim to get at switch, cleaning contacts and components of switch, but symptom eventually re-appeared. Cycling through e-flashers a few times works every time for me. - Rick Rock

How to replace turn-signal flasher 2004 impala

Make sure you check the turn signal fuse, located at the driver's end of the instrument panel. You have to open the door, take out a screw, and the panel pops off. The 4th fuse down on the 3rd row from the left is marked TRN-SIG.

Turn signals don't flash, they just go on solid

You may have a bad socket or bulb either in the front or rear replace if you find the one that is not working. May also be your flasher hit your emergency flashers and if those do not work suspect the flasher.

There is a 4-way switch inside your steering column which controls the hazard lights the blinkers. If this switch is faulty your example is one thing that can happen. If the problem worsens you could lose all exterior lighting except the headlights. I had this happen to me one time.

Turn signals are not working

Do your emergency flashers still work? Have you had a tech check the bulbs? It could be the bulbs, The flasher module that plugs in to your fuse panel or a fuse, faulty wiring< (which I seriously doubt)> or your blinker actuator on the steering column. I think its just a fuse but I could be wrong.

I've 02 Chevy Impala and the turn signal won't work. It flashes somewhat but not consistent. How should I repair this problem?

Just press the hazard warning switch off and on and it will restore the blinkers. I don't know why this works, but it has saved me from the overzealous dealer service people who want to replace the entire steering column.
