Good Evening, this is a common problem and you would be best to check with your local dealer to see if the recall (replacing the hazard switch) has been done. Your hazard switch is also your turn signal flasher and your hazard flasher all in one switch. Try playing with the button while you have your turn signals on, there is a good chance you will notice it may work sporatically. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: turn signals and hazzards dont flash how can i

Check the relay/fuse box, the relay that causes them to flash can go defective...the clicking you hear is the relay opening and closing to turn the lights on and off.

My turn signals in '03 olds alero dont always work. When they dont, if i push hazard button my signals will work again. I already replaced the turn switch stick on the steering column n continue to have...


Its not the flasher.

The hazzard switch is the most likely culprit since it directs current to either the turn signal switch or directly to the turn signal lights depending on its position. Over time the contacts wear out in the flasher switch. When you push it in and out you are allowing good contact to return to the normally off function that routes power to the turn signal switch.

The flasher switch can be found at any good parts store.

I pushed the hazard light button and it push through and got stuck in the dash.so i pulled the fuse for them and they turned off so now i cant use my turn signals,is there a way to turn off the hazzards...


remove hazzard switch from dash, and unplug wires from switch, keep wires from touching each other w/ tape. blinkers should work. change out hazzard switch w/ new switch.

My turn signals don't work but the hazzards flash


if your hazzards flash, that means your bulbs will be good but, your turn signal fuse is blown. you should check that first, & don't forget to turn off your hazzards before you can see if your turn signals work again. give it a try.

The turn signals on my 2002 alero work only sometimes


All this runs though the hazzard button in the dash. The light in it gets hot and eventually shorts the system. It is fairly easy to replace if you have small hands. I think the new button is around $20. This happened to my alero and also my moms alero. Solved the problem on both.
