Question about 2004 Chevrolet Monte Carlo

Turn signals don't work - not the bulbs or fuse

All the lights still burn & I tried replacing the fuse. The lights come on and stay on (don't blink). Can you help?

    I will definitely come back and accept if that works. It may be a week before I get a chance to address it, though.

    Thanks.

  • grisdale Jun 20, 2008

    No problem. I'm going to try to get this resolved the first of the week.

  • grisdale Jun 25, 2008

    That worked. Thanks for the help!! I was going to rate your solution, but I don't see where I can do that.

If the bulbs light up but don't blink there is a 95% chance the flasher module is bad. They no longer use a regular flasher like we are used to. The flasher is now a part of the hazard flasher switch assembly.
If you need anything else let me know.
Thanks,
Lee

    Most likely want to have a trust worthy mechanic do it as it's usually not marked.

Alpha Romeo 156 My Left hand indicator light stays on continually, does not flash. and when I turn the hazard light switch on both indicators continually glow.


Generally speaking, symptoms of a bad or failing turn signal bulb are usually the culprit...in your case, either it's the front left or rear bulb. Varies for different vehicle makes...common signs include:
  1. turn signal light staying on solid
  2. or blinking very fast
  3. or either sides of the bulbs stop blinking altogether.
To test this, make sure you reconnect everything you disconnected.
Turn the left signal light on; go to the front of the vehicle, is the turn signal bulb illuminated? If it lights up, even though it is not blinking obviously the bulb is okay. If it doesn't, replace it- problem solved. You'll do the same procedure for the rear turn signal Is that lit up? If not replace the bulb and the problem is solved.
Another common failure is when the turn signal blinks really fast, same procedure as mentioned above.
If both bulbs for the left side and right side illuminate but don't blink, the problem is in the steering column turn signal switch.
If the left or right side blinkers don't work properly at all...then check the integrated hazard warning/turn signal flasher relay- that may be defective; again, that's usually the case if both sides of the signal light don't work.
If you are blowing any fuses related to the flasher system, you have an electrical overload in the turn signal circuitry.

TURN SIGNALS


Hi

Did you check the fuses for the turn lights? Do the
parking lights work? If the parking lights work then you probably have a
problem either in the switch or in turn signal module thing.
The burned out bulb is what might be causing it not to blink... if one bulb is burned out you gotta replace it, make no difference if front or back,the left blinker will not work if the left front or rear bulb is bad.
same with the right side. if the front right or rear right turn signal
light is burned out it will not work.....get replacing the bulbs.Hope this solves your problem.Please rate me if my solution helped you.

Regards,

/'left front turn signal works but not when headlights are on


1. check your turn signal light bulbs to see if one is burned out or partly burned out. One filament may be broken. Do it with lights on and off. Check brake lights. If one not working that is the problem bulb. Check front and back lights.

2. replace your turn signal flashers in fuse panel

My turn signal will not blink, but my hazards work. ive replaced the 2-way flasher and it didnt work. what should i do?


I don't have your wiring diagram, but often, the turn lights and the flasher circuit use two different fuses, so it is not surprising that one would work and the other doesn't.
On a car this old, you are looking not only for burned fuses, but also corroded fuses. Pull the fuses out and examine them for corrosion, and clean their sockets.
Sometimes turn signals will not blink if you have a bulb out (insufficient current flow to trigger the blinker circuit) so if you have a bulb out on each side, that could cause both sides to fail to blink.

Signal light blinking too fast


I just had that problem with my jeep cherokee and either your bulb has burned out or it is burning out. Time to replace it. Turn the signal light lever on the side that's flashing fast, get out of the vehicle and look at the front and back signal lights and replace the one that isn't blinking...hope this helps.

Dont have signal


Click the turn signal switch to either the right or left and get out and check if the BULB comes on but doesn't blink. Try both directions. Does the arrow for that direction also come on, on the dashboard instruments and stays on but not blink? That is a built in indicator that a filament has burned out in one of the bulbs. Try replacing the bulbs. Could also be the fuse for that circuit. Check fuse panel for that circuit. Could also be the turn signal relay. Replace with newer style relay.

Blinkers not working


Did you check the bulbs? If one bulb is burned out, the blinkers won't word on that side. You could have one bulb burned out on each side. Start the car, put left signal on. Check front and back lights. Is one light on but not blinking? If that's the case, the light that's not on at all is burned out and has broken the circuit so the good light stays on and won't blink. Check the other side. You also have a 'flasher' , actually 2. One for emergency flashers, one for the turn signals. It could be that the turn signal flasher is shot. You just have to unplug it to remove. It's probably located near the fuses. good luck countrycurt0
