Uhm i am not sure what you mean with just turn signal flasher i just answered another post with instructions how to replace it. You can see that below. If your wondering why it does that well it seems that the first series of alternators in the Intriques 1998 and up were either too weak or had problems with fluctuating power causing the electronics to act up. Signal light flashers and sockets were the worst (usually passenger side ones). This was rectified by replacing the alternator for a stronger one in the 98's to 2001's however the newer models had lower powered alternators so when you replace that "make sure" you get the one for your vehicle as they are not interchangeable even though they have the same mount.
"That is a very quick and easy fix. I believe you may suffer the constant blowing of your signal light right? (I had it so bad that at some point they would break the same day) Here the good news you do not need to buy them from GM directly at the cost of 80 dollars plus. You will need to find an ACDelco LS115 Socket at any Lordco or other Car Part shop. That should cost around 30 dollars.
The replacing of this is very straight forward. There are two slats on the back of your headlight (white) which clamp the light to the frame. All you do is pull these up and remove them from the pins they are on and pull the whole headlight assembly out. (total of 15 second deal)
Then take the plastic cover of the signal light bay rotate the signal light socket to the left and pull carefully. Pull out the Bulb (if you need it and it works) then remove the little plug on the other end of the socket (the plug with the cables for power to the socket) and attach it to the new socket. Insert bulb place headlight assembly in place the white slats back on the pins and clamp the headlight assembly back to the frame...

Total time for that procedure should be 50 seconds ;) and you won't have to pay a mechanic for that."

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.

Turn lights blink with hazards but not with turn signal..flasher replaced. is It the multifunction lever then??


There should be a turn signal flasher and a hazard flasher. They are two different parts. If you replaced the hazard flasher and not the turn signal flasher than I would start by replacing the turn signal flasher.

One thing you can do once you find the turn signal flasher is to unplug it and use a jumper wire between the two pins of the connector then turn the key to the run position and place the turn signal lever in the left or right position. If the turn signal lights know light up than the turn signal flasher is the problem

Signal light flasher location


The turn signal flasher and the emergency flasher on most cars are located in the same area. Turn on the emergency flasher and find the sound......the turn signal flasher should be in the same area.

Turn signals were working...but blinking fast. now they don't work at all...replaced fuse in side panel near door and still nothing. Everything else works..headlights, wipers, hazards..what gives?


you have a separate flasher for the turn signals.this is what your problem sounds like.if all your lights are working including the signal indicator on the dash then it will be the signal flasher.if you turn on the hazard flashers and locate it under the dash, this will show you what the turn signal flasher will look like.then you will have to look for the flasher unit on the fuse panel that looks like the hazard flasher.replace the turn signal flasher and you will have your signal flashers again

Turn Signals quit working


Sounds like the turn signal flasher is going bad. The easy way to find wher the flasher is hidden is turn the turn signal on and find the clicking, that is the flasher. The emergency flashers work fine because they use a different flasher.
