The flasher is located below the dash on the drivers side of the car. You must remove the panel below the steering wheel. There are three bolts on this panel. Once removed look to the lefe side of the car, as far left as you can see. You will see two square boxes. One is mounted to a rail with plastic clips. The other is mounted with a screw to the body. The one mounted to the body is the one you are looking for. Slide it off the metal clip and remove the plug. Plug in your new flasher and away you go. You may have to remove the first square box to get to the flasher.

The hazard back lights wont quit blinking when car is running even when i pull the fuse on a 2002 buick regal


What fuse are you pulling ?

Hazard Lamps
The hazard warning switch is part of the turn signal switch. The turn signal switch receives battery voltage at all times through the HAZARD SWITCH Fuse. When the hazard switch is placed in the HAZARD position, battery voltage is applied to the hazard lamp/turn signal lamp flasher. The hazard lamp/turn signal lamp flasher sends a turn signal flasher signal to the turn signal switch. The turn signal switch provides all of the turn lamps and turn indicators with the turn signal flasher signal, simultaneously flashing them on and off.

Turn Signal Lamps
The front turn signal lamps are made up of the front park/turn signal lamps and rear turn signal lamps. The front turn signal lamps flash with the rear turn signal lamps when a turn is initiated using the turn signal/multifunction lever. The turn signals will operate only with the ignition switch in the RUN position and will not operate during hazard flasher operation.
When the ignition is turned to the RUN position, battery voltage is supplied to the TURN SIGNAL Fuse. Battery voltage is then applied through the turn signal fuse circuit to the turn signal switch. When the turn signal switch is placed in the LH or RH position, voltage is supplied to the hazard lamp/turn signal lamp flasher. The hazard lamp/turn signal lamp flasher supplies a turn signal flasher signal to the turn signal switch. With the turn signal switch in the LH or RH position the corresponding turn signal indicator, rear turn signal, and front turn signal receive the turn signal switch signal and will flash. The front turn signals receive the turn signal switch signal from the turn signal switch via the BCM. The turn lamps are permanently grounded.

Replace the turn signal switch. Refer to Multifunction, Turn Signal, and Hazard Switch Replacement - On Vehicle in Steering Wheel and Column - Tilt.

How to fix turn signal on 86 Chevy Astro Van


you don`t say but do the lights work either on the front/back on both sides.if not then it may be a fuse that needs replacing or need a bulb replacement.if the lights work but don`t flash then it sounds like a signal flasher problem.the flasher is located in the fuse panel under the dash on the drivers side.if the hazard flashers work then turn them on to find the hazard flasher by the fuse panel then you will know what the signal flasher looks like and change the signal flasher.make sure you change the one for the signals and not the hazard one.if the hazards work then i would say the signal switch is good as the hazards work through the same switch.

I drive a 2000 mitsu. mirage. my turn signals just stopped working. i checked the bulbs the fuses they're good. the emergency flashers work im wondering if maybe its the turning module but i dont know...


The emergency flasher switch is also the turn signal flasher It pops out of the dash and can be replaced easy. do chaeck the fuses before going to this much troble. check all the fuses as some work backup circuits that you wouldn;t think would be important. Before replacing the flasher switch ( you may only be able to buy it from the dealer) work the switch several times and the flashers will come on cheak to see if allthe lights work thenturn the flashers off and see ( with the key on if the turn signals now work. Now if during the test with the four way flashers you see a bulb or more out you know that the turn signals wouldn't work, but the four ways will. they work on different fuses so chak the turnsignal fuse too. after cycling the switch try the turn signals again as the switch is likly to stick and sometimes cycling it will get the turn signals working again. Fooling around with the switch you may find a position that the turn signals work. if you can't get it to stay working then you'll have to change the flasher emergency switch.

No brake/hazard lights,have running/turn signal lights


Suggest you change hazard flasher 'can' first, then go to the hazard switch. I'm betting it's the flasher can.
