If its like my 1999 Lumina, its on the end of the dash on passenger side. Open pass. side front door, look at the end of the dash & you should see a little door that says "FUSES" on it. Grab the tab at the bottom of the little door & pull out. And Ta da, there they are!

For Chev Lumina 1997 3.1 liter model - first you notice your instrument panel went dark, - then an officer notices your tail lights are all dark as well - both loads, the panel lights and tail lights, are on the same circuit, and that fuse is located in the fuse panel under the hood, driver's side, labeled "PARK LIGHTS." Note to the wise - this happens because yet a third set of loads, your side-marker lights are also on that same circuit, and chances are, road salt has corroded the rear side-marker light sockets and the corrosion has entered one of the bulbs and deformed the metallic struts inside, producing a metallic short-circuit, which has blown the fuse. Simply remove and replace the bulbs, then the fuse. Or if need be, cut the leads to the corroded sockets and toss both. Replacement sockets and fresh bulbs can be purchased from the parts counter, or body shop. But that won't prevent road salt from re-entering the plastic cowl assembly and potentially repeating the corrosion fault. Apply sealing caulk or form-a-gasket in two places, 1.) at socket capture port, and 2.) all around the aperture in the plastic body-side trim panel, where side-marker lens seats with it.

To check the fuse panel on the driver's side of the engine compartment, you can usually get enough clearance underneath the body strut to unlatch the panel cover. (If not, you'll use a 1/2" socket to loosen the (2) forward bolts that secure the strut, because it ties down the fuse panel cover). You'll find that the main 15 amp fuse is blown (no continuity). Replace that fuse, check tail lights, panel lights and front side marker lights, re-apply the fuse panel cover (re-fasten body strut if needed), and you're done.

Less likely that either of the front side-marker lights have developed the short-circuit that blows the fuse, but it's next in line to check, if the rears were found to be fault-free.

    Wdavy comments were right on and detailed. On my 97 lumina the drivers fuse box is not sealed good no gasket. So in my case the fuse was rusted into sockets. Also the abs. So I used some Acetone and old tooth brush to clear out the and some aluminum clean. When I pulle dthe fuse I some baby needle nose plyers. the fuse broke so I made sure I got both metal teeth and cleaned the recieveres I put the new fused in and would of like to use dielectric grease,but since I was out I used lithum and sprayed the interior with WD-40 to keep the moister out and tested it and sealed it back up. Also I did the ABS fuse maybe that will work now.

None of my turn signals work but the bulbs and the fuses are still good, but my parking lights work fine.


Sounds like it could be the Turn Signal Flasher Relay which is usually under the steering colum cover. that or the whole side that controls headlamps, hazzard, turn signals and optional cruise control.

Hazard lights and turn signals not working


Sounds like the flasher relay switch. It is probably on the back side of the fuse box, or a separate thing, on the steering colum under the dash. But it is attatched to the wires comming out of the colum. Or could be a fuse, or the switch. However if it was turn switch the hazards shoud work.

Where is the turn signal fuse in my 97 lumina


It is generally mounted just to the right of the steering column under the dash... you will see one in the fuse box but that is not the one you want, if you cant locate it go to an Auto Zone Parts Store and they will not only sell you the right one for your car they will also tell you exactly where the flasher is located. have fun!!!!

1997 Chevrolet Lumina : upper brakelight (window) works, lower brakelights don't work. Changed bulbs and fuse-no go. Most logical theory so far is that they are on seperate circuits, the lower lights run...


Will your Center High-Mount Stop Light (CHMSL) illuminate when you depress the brake pedal, but the lower/outer lights will not?
-- Do you have to hold the signal lever in a certain spot to get the turn signals to flash?
-- Do you have to hold the signal lever in a certain spot to get the lower/outer brake lights to illuminate?
-- Will the signals work in one direction, but not the other?
If you answered yes to any of the preceeding questions, your turn signal switch is likely malfunctioning.

**One more question before we continue: Is the turn signal lever not "cancelling" (returning to the "off" position) after you make a turn? If this is the case, you have a broken "cancelling spring."


Before you begin disassembly of your steering column, verify the turn signal flasher is not malfunctioning. If your brake lights work fine, but not the signals (either direction,) then it's likely the flasher is burnt out. The flasher itself is located underneath the dash near where the steering column passes through the firewall

Turn signals dont work at all hazards too


if the fuse is good then the multifunction switch is bad. this is the switch in the steering colum. this switch comes with the signal arm that comes out the side of steering colum as a complete assembley. the top and bottom covers of the steering colum must be removed to change switch.
