    I have the same problem with my 96 Lasabre. Sounds like a simple fix, but for the life of me I can't find the flasher so I can replace it !

    Both my blinkers stay steady rather than flashing, and I have replaced all of the bulbs. Another strange part of this problem is that when I turn on the fourways they work just fine. Fuses look good too, what could cause this problem when all the obvious options are good?

Turn signal flasher relay location in


Turn signals use what is called a flasher to regulate the speed at which the lamps turn on and off. Usually mounted in the fuse box. I have attached the replacement model for a 1996 Roadie. Should take all of 15 seconds to replace.

Cant find the turn signal relay switch on a 87 buick somerset


It should be up under the dash, usually close around the steering column. The turn signal flasher and the hazard flasher may look the same. If you turn on the hazard lights, you should be able to locate that flasher-it will be clicking, and if you hold a finger lightly on it, you can feel it working. That may help you find the turn signal flasher-often they are close together.

Have a 1988 Jeep Wagoneer with a few issues. My turn signals no longer blink or flash that I know of..?


Okay, the first thing to check is to turn on the signal on one side and see if the outside signal light comes on. if the light comes on then try replacing the flasher. Also see if your 4way flashers work or if they are also out. if they are out then check your fuse first.
If the fuses are good then try the flasher, if the flasher does not solve the problem then you may need to replace the turn signal switch. I have worked on a few of these and most of the time it was a flasher or the turn signal switch. good day.

My turn signals won't come on at all?


check the fuse if good then turn on the hazard lights if they work then you probably need a turn signal flasher which is a separate flasher unit then the hazard one.it usually looks like the hazard one so with the hazards on and locate it then you will know what the signal flasher looks like and you will also know not to change the wrong flasher unit.the signal flasher is often located at or near the under dash fuse panel or somewhere in the dash you don`t say what type of car your talking about.

Turn signals do not work


This is one FLASHER fault; ?m referring to the blinker "flasher fuse", it is the bottom round fuse under the dash in the fuse block.

REPLACEMENTThe turn signal flasher and hazard units are usually located located under the dash either to the left or right of the steering column on most models.
  1. Remove the turn signal flasher unit or hazard unit by pulling them up from the electrical connection.
  2. To install, push the unit(s) into the electrical connector

Good luck (remember comment and rated this).

TURN SIGNAL, BRAKE & HAZARD LIGHTS


No Turn Signal Operation (blinker)The turn signal lights in your car are a basic electrical system that controls the front and rear blinker lights to alert the intended direction of the vehicle. We have listed some of the most common problems and repair troubleshooting tips below:
Troubleshooting Procedure
To start troubleshooting this problem:
  • Turn the key to the on position (do not start engine)
  • Inspect the system fuse located in the fuse panel and replace if needed. If you cannot find the location of the blinker fuse consult your owner's manual or an online repair manual
  • When a blinker flasher fails it can cause blinker lights to say on, not blink, or not go on at all. To test the blinker system flasher, remove the flasher unit and insert a jumper wire between the two terminals. If blinker stays on in both directions without blinking, replace the flasher. If you cannot find the location of the blinker flasher consult your owners manual or an online repair manual.

Turning signals dont blink


Problem is the Turn Signal "FLASHER" unit, 1.Turn on Emergency FLASHERS 2. Go under Dash while they are on Listen -for Clicking sound then feel for it 3. Should Be a Silver Round Unit About as Big IN ROUND as Half dollar coin 4. ok now Look Around for the SAME EXACT Thing Clipped onto Something Under dash At Driver side Usually Between Steering wheel and Center HUMP in Floor, 5. once you find it Take OUT the first One you Found Emergency FLASHER) and 6. Put it In Place of Turn Signal Flasher, 7. Turn off Emergency Flashers- Turn Key in "ON" Position but don't start then Try Turn Signals. Yaaaa !!!! they work ?? LoL hopefully this Does the trick, if they work Buy new one and Replace Always Use NEW For TURN Signals as they are used Much More than Emergency Flashers. Hope this is Good Instructions For you and Helps you Solve The Problem, Please DONT Forget to RATE ME Thank you Rejakwilson@aol.com
