This was a recall. Check with your dealer.

In Olds Alero the flasher is intergrated into the hazard light button. It is all one assembly in the dash. It is in the $40 dollar range, but that is the only way to fix the flashers is to replace assembly. You must remove the plastic housing from around the dash cluster to reach. It is located to the right of the dash cluster. If you are good with your hands you will be able to get it out without taking out the cluster. Be careful, it is held in place with plastic snaps. Part number is on the assembly and it is GM exclusive.

The flasher is located right behind the four way flash buttin. it's a little green cube in my car. (( alero 3.4 )) you can unscrew the guage cluster it's just a few simple screws be carefull taking out the cluster, you might have to turn it forwards abit to unhook the plug to it. (( located over to the left side of the top of the cluster )) then you can see the little flasher box. it might be handy to remove the air vent just on top of it if you have big hands so you can get in there easier. hopw this helps. (also the was a recall on these flashers from alero's 2000 and up maybe you could get it replaced for free.)

Usually problem with multifunction switch causes problems with hazard switch.
