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.)

Signal lights stopped working


If the fuse is good and the flashers work then you have a bad signal flasher, this car uses two flashers in one located under the dash, one controls the hazard lights and the other the signals, these are all inside one flasher, so turn on the hazards to locate it by listening to clicking noise. i have inclosed a diagram to help locate it. its on leftside kick panel by your left foot, replace the flasher and see if that does it, good day12_6_2011_6_03_02_pm.gif

I have a Frontier XE 2001. Niether turn signal works have good bulbs and fuses are OK. Where else should I look.


did both signal lights stop working at the same time or not,it may just be the signal flasher has gone bad,it is located under the dash by the fuse panel.if the hazard flashers work then i would say the signal flasher is bad.with the hazards on you can locate it and that is what the signal flasher looks like and it is a separate flasher,

Both my right & left turn signals aren't working but hazards are


If you can locate the hazrd flasher unit under the dash on the drivers side, the turn flasher unit should be right beside it and looks the same. Unplug and switch the 2 flashers and see if the turn signals work. The flasher unit is a silver and round. they are usually close to the stering colum. Let me know if that helps.

The turn signals do not work when you use the signal switch. However, the emergency flashers do work. The fuse was checked and is good. Everything else on the signal stem works: the cruise control,...


if the fuse is good and all the lights work(if you checked them when the hazards were working)then you need a signal flasher,the signals have a separate flasher and it looks like the hazard flasher.if you turn on the hazards and look for it under the dash then you know what the signal flasher looks like,it is located on the fuse panel of in that area.

Turn signals won't come on inside or outside of car but hazard lights come on inside and outside of car


Check turn signal fuse, if fuse is good, check turn signal flasher, this is identical to hazard flasher, I believe on the 1997 it is located under the dash near the center console. The turn signal and hazard flashers are the same part number so try switching places with them and see if the turn signals work. If turn signals work after switching them you need a flasher.

Flasher or turn signal switch


When you select left or right do any of the bulbs come on? If you select left check front and back left side if one of the bulbs did not come on the flasher will not work. Change the bulb that is out. Same with the right. If the fuse for the turn signal is good (check fuse or replace do not use visual, some appear to be good but are not).
The emergency flasher is different from the turn signal flasher. Look at manual for location of turn signal flasher. If you manually lift and lower turn signal control you may hear a clicking under the dash to locate the flasher.
