Under the dash is a flasher unit. Replace it and everything should start working again. The flasher unit is very inexpensive and available at most parts stores.

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.

1996 3500 sierra left signal causes all lights to flash


Well, you're dealing with a short. If the right turn signal only works the right side bulbs, you know you're issue must be in the switch. The only way left turn signal would light the right side, but the right signal would not light the left is if you added a diode, which I doubt is the case. So the switch itself is suspect. That or a wiring issue. If you just bought the truck, and this is an existing issue I'd suspect wiring. If it just started doing this I'd suspect the switch.


I would check to make sure someone didn't monkey with the wires and switch the left turn signal with the hazard lights or something (do your hazard lights happen to flash only the left turn signals?). If it has or had an aftermarket alarm you need to check their work and see what may be screwed up. Alarm systems often tap into the parking lights, which will look like all 4 turn signals, but are actually dimmer filaments. Flashing the parking lights would actually make your radio flash too, so I'm kind of leaning this way. Can't say for sure on limited information though.

The hazard lights start flashing and I can't turn


there must be alarm fitted that either has the siren disconnected or turned off. Basically sensing an intrusion alert or voltage drop. Flip out the hazard switch, there will be a wire which runs seperate from the body loom into this light, just cut it, the correct one though. if needs be trace it back.....probably end up behind the glove box

SIGANL LIGHTS DONT WORK


This should be a bad turn signal flasher, located on the fuse block (not an actual fuse, usually a round cylinder plug in )
