Question about 1983 Chevrolet Malibu

1 Answer

I have a 1980 malibu classic and the front parking lights on the right side will not turn on. only when the emergency flashers are on do they work. it gets a little juice to them because when they are supposed to be lit they are really really really dim. the rear lights turn off when i push the brakes and are also dim. (only on right) along with that the dashboard lights will not light. ive changed the fuse and the lights. the turn signals do not work and the blue bright lights indicator has recently gone out. however the light that is next to the wash/wipe dial is the only thing on the dash that is on. keep in mind the left side lights work fine. is this a short somewhere

Most likely a part of the wiring harness is pinched and shorting out the wires...very time consuming to track down

Flasher relay location Pontiac Bonneville 2004 removal and installation.


If the right side works it's not your flasher, Its your left side bulb, either front turn signal or rear tail light bulb.

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....

Turn signal will eluminate but not flash. emergancy lights work and flash fine. Have replaced the flasher and turn signal switch.


You know you have 2 flashers right, one for emergency flashers and one for signal lights? Does it refuse to flash on both sides, right and left? Have you checked all bulbs front and back are good?

I got a 2006 malibu and I'm having problems with the hazard lights. The hazard lights don't work but the turn signals do.


check fuse under dash, or may be a bad flasher. you'll find that right next to fuse box you should have 2 flashers one for turn signals @ 1 for emergency flashers

No signal lights at all and no emergency flashers


you need to check the "combination turn signal/hazard flasher/daytime running lights module"
it is located in the junction block,the junction block is adjacent to and left of the steering column,you need to remove the lower dash panel below the steering column,then remove the steel knee brace.

Flasher or turn signal switch


When you select left or right do any of the bulbs come on? If you select left check front and back left side if one of the bulbs did not come on the flasher will not work. Change the bulb that is out. Same with the right. If the fuse for the turn signal is good (check fuse or replace do not use visual, some appear to be good but are not).
The emergency flasher is different from the turn signal flasher. Look at manual for location of turn signal flasher. If you manually lift and lower turn signal control you may hear a clicking under the dash to locate the flasher.

No brake lights of blinkers 1990 dodge dynasty


While not likely, it is possible that the light bulbs in both sides are have bad filaments. Turn on ignition key (but don't start engine). Then turn on parking lamps (first detent or "click" on headlamp switch). Walk around car and look for illumination on front parking lamps and rear tail lights. Turn on the right turn signal. Are those (right hand) lamps now changing brilliance? Try the left turn signal in the same manner. Are those (left hand) front and rear lights changing briiliance? Take note of any positions that did NOT change briliance when the turn signals were activated. If NONE changed briliance, you either have a bunch of bad bulbs (unlikely) or a bad flasher (more likely) or a bad turn signal switch (most likely) or perhaps wiring problems (possible if the car has been in a collision or has been "worked on" by some "non-expert" mechanic). Check the action of the emergency flasher control switch located on the steering column (facing up). Pushing it in (down) should result in the button going to two different heights alternately (low, high, low, high). You could just have bad flashers or corroded flasher contacts! Good luck!
