On my 2001 (same as 97) Cavalier under the steering column is a flap that is held in place by one torx screw. Drop that and you should be able to look way up and see the wires coming out of the flasher unit. The unit is attached to something metal by not much. Grab the whole assembly (flasher unit and its plug) and wiggle it free. Then you can separate the flasher unit and its plug. BTW the old unit was bright green or maybe that is some kind of cover that helps to reattach it but I didn't bother.

The usual location of the flasher unit on Chevrolets is in the fuse box itself, it will probably be located amongst the relays in the fuse box.

2000 tacoma flashers don't work but turn sig do work!


The hazard switch gets power from the horn fuse which is hot all the time, and from the turn signal fuse which is hot when the key switch is on. The turn signal switch gets power from the hazard switch and both use the same flasher.
So if the turn signals work but the hazard switch does not power the lights, and both fuses have power, I would say the problem is inside the hazard switch.

92 caprice classic turn signals not working, but the bulbs are fine. Hazards, brakes, etc all work fine. Any ideas?


Yes, the problem is the turn signal flasher is defective. You can has two flasher relays. One for the turn signals and one for the hazard lights. That is why the hazard lights flash and the turn signals do not. Replace the turn signal flasher relay located on the drivers side of the steering column, mounted behind the instrument cluster in the convenience center. They are both mounted in the same location so turn on the hazard lights and the one that you put your finger on that is not clicking is the turn signal relay.

No turn signals is it a fuse that no good or flasher relay


If the turn signal light on the dash, come's on, but don't flash, then it would be the flasher, if no light comes on dash, check fuses.

Change oil light comes on ans stays on shortly after turning the car on. Then it turns off after a minute or so. Oil was changed very recently and don't know what's up?


This light needs to be reset when the oil is changed. To reset, do the following:
1. turn key to 'run' position with engine OFF
2.fully press and release the gas pedal 3 times in 5 seconds or less
3.light should now flash, which means it is reset. Light will go off in 30 seconds, or when key is turned off.

Brake lights wont flash and turn signal wont flash


turn on the turn signals without turning on any other lights, first left, walk around the car, and see if there is a light that is not functioning, then right, and do the same. If there is a light that is not functioning, replace the bulb.
If all lights work, then its the unit flasher unit itself, and can be baught at a parts store, and is easy enough to replace in the fuse box of most cars.

Indicators not working


Do the signals light up, but just don't flash? If that's the case, Turn your hazard flashers on & listen for clicking sound from flasher/relay ,usually under dash, at or near, fuse panel. Once you locate that one, the other flasher/relay for your signals should be in same area, and probably looks same too. If the #s written on them are the same, try swapping them to try & see if signals now work.If they do, replace the bad one, but put new one in for signals. If they don't don't come on at all, you'll have to start pulling fuses for a look & see if burnt out. If you have a 12volt test light you can simply touch on little metal tabs at ends of fuses without pulling out, to test. If power on both sides, fuse is good. If you use test light, make sure key is on & signal is on while testing for bad fuse. Power on one side, but not the other, pull it & have a look.
