SOURCE: need to know where turn signal relay is on a2005

The flasher for the turn signal and hazzard lights is internal to the hazzard light push button.

A very bad design choice, because the entire dash bezel needs removed to remove the switch. But that is only 6 screws and a couple of clips.

Before buying the dealer only part. Take the switch out and give it a tap on a solid surface. That fixed mine. 10 minutes of work and it was fixed.

Good luck and keep me posted.

No power to fuel pump on 92 olds silhoutte


The oil pressure sensor only keeps the pump running after the vehicle is started. If you turn key to on, the computer should signal to the fuel pump relay, turning the pump on for a couple of seconds to pressurize the fuel system. Then the computer signal stops. When the key is turned to start-cranking the engine- the computer again energizes the fuel pump relay, keeping the pump running until the engine starts.
If you have a voltmeter or test light, pull the relay out and check the relay terminals. One should be hot at all times-the power feed for the pump. The computer signal will be on the coil side of the relay-will have power for 2 or 3 seconds after key is turned to on. Or it will have a constant signal when the engine is cranking. If you can find both hot terminals at the relay, then start looking for a bad wire from relay to pump, or a bad ground for the pump, or a bad ground for the relay's coil side. Post back if unclear or other questions. When you pull the relay out, the diagram for it will be on the side of the relay-telling you which is the power feed and the terminal to the pump, and the coil side of relay, both the coil power side and the coil ground terminal.

Cooling fan isn't working , i've changed the ECT (sensor) , both relay (high and low fan) and both big fuses. Had a close look to the plugs and wires and everything is nice out there , what else should i...


Well you need to take a meter and actually check the components.
The ECT sends a signal to the computer, and the computer grounds the relays when the fans are needed. You need to know if the relay is getting power and a ground signal from the computer when the engine temp reaches 220 degrees, or when the ac is turned on.

What makes the cooling fans turn on?


there is a temperature sensor that feeds the ecm(computer)a signal to let it know if the motor requires cooling operation at a predermined temp,which the ecm sends a signal to the cooling fan relay to turn on the cooling fans.when the temp lowers to a predetermined temp the signal is turned off to the ecm and the ecm turns off the signal to the fan relay to turn off the cooling fans.

My 2006 Chevrolet equinox cooling fans and front turn signal lamps have abruptly stopped working. Tested the fans=good. Tested flasher bulbs=good. Do I need new wiring harness? Maybe a connection...


I would find the circuit breaker relay that supplies power to whichever power distribution box that contains the cooling fan relays. If the box has power, then you may want to consider the following: I feel that if you find out why the fans quit working, then you may also have solved the front turn signal issue.

Electric Fan(s) not working, Checking the fan(s), relay, fuse and engine temperature sensor's.
Verify that the fans work by unplugging them and run jumper wires to the fan(s) from the battery. If they run, your problem lies elsewhere. If either does not run, it's the motor.
Next thing to check is for power at the fan connectors. You have to be cautious doing this because the engine needs to be running and warm if not almost hot, and the A/C also needs to be on. (Both must be on and running for the duration of this checklist.) The A/C fan is on the passenger side and should come on almost the instant the A/C is turned on. It is also the secondary engine cooling fan and should cycle on and off in relation to engine temperature, (If the A/C is OFF). Use a test light to probe the two wires on each fan. If you find power, the fan motor(s) is/are probably bad. If there is no power to fans, roll up your sleeves!

The temperature switch is usually located above the oil filter. If the dash gage is working, its probably OK. Next is the Fan Control Temperature Sensor, located IN or CLOSE to the thermostat housing. You will find out if it is working later is this checklist. I just wanted you to know where it is. Next is the relays and fuse's. Usually located in the engine compartment on the passenger side power distribution box. You will need to remove anything over the cover to open it. If the fuses are OK, tap on the relays or pull them out and push back in. If the fans are still not running, pull a relay and probe the socket terminals for power. Two of the terminals should have power, usually criss-cross from each other. One hot terminal is battery power, and the other is the "signal" voltage which triggers the relay to send 12V battery power to the fan. This signal voltage comes from the sensor at the thermostat. If only one terminal has power, then I would replace the sensor at the thermostat, if not both sensors.

What controls the fan relay to get the ground so the fan will come on?


Your engine temperature sensor. That and the ECM. If you tested your relay and it is good then it is not getting the signal to close the circuit when the engine heats up. Your coolant is controlled by a manual thermostat but your fan knows to turn on based on the engine temp readings through your engine temp sensor. It is cheap and easy to replace but I would double check your fuses first.

I have 2005 monte carlo it keeps over heating the cooling fans are not comming on I replaced the relays and its still over heating and I can't find the heat senser any help


The coolant temp sensor is on the thermostat housing at the back of the engine. See pictures below. Try taking the connector off the sensor--this should turn the fans on. If not, you may have a problem with power distribution to the fans. You can interrogate the relay sockets to verify that the PCM is sending a signal to turn the fans on. Please see my tip at http://www.fixya.com/cars/r6022358-relay_check on how to interrogate the relays. The PCM signal is a ground signal, so one of the socket terminals should be dead until the engine is hot--then it should become a ground. I have pasted the wiring diagrams below, but resolution on FixYa is not great. Please let me know if you have any questions.

Electric fans for radiator do not turn on. Tested


Temp sending sensor may be bad. If it is bad the fans don't have something "saying it's hot or overheating, need to turn on fans to cool down" The fans are not getting the signal it needs to turn on. If you have checked the motors and relay then this is the only other problem I have seen,

Where is the location of the fuel pump reset switch on a 1996 Jeep Cherokee Sport?


You don't have one on there. Pump is turned on and off by the automatic shutdown relay and the pump relay. The crank sensor signal keeps it on. If the asd relay does not get a signal from the computer (from the crank sensor), it turns off the pump relay (and spark).
The pump should run when you first turn the key on. When you start the engine, if the computer gets no signal from the crank sensor it will shut the engine off (no fuel, no spark = off)
If when you first turn the key to on, you can't hear the pump, likely either the pump has failed (check power at the pump harness) or the relay is bad.(swap relay for a known good one and try it).

1998 Audi A4 1.8T fuel pump does not turn on


if you have diagnostic equipment you will be able to see the signal through serial data(if you believe it)the cranksensor is located near the rear of the engine pointing towards the radiator i think it goes to a grey plug....
