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.

My left turn signal recently stopped working. Before ceasing to work, the turn signal (just the left) would blink very rapidly (machine gun speed).


sounds like one of light bulbs was malfunctioning and caused the flasher unit to blink rapidly and iy burned out. Replace front and rear turn lite bulbs and see if flasher flashes. if not check fuse and replace fuse. If fuse okay replace flasher unit. Good luck

I got a 1974 vw bug the turn signal do not want to work at all what can i do?


All grounds need to be double checked for cleanliness and contact at each of the light assemblies. There is also a turn signal relay located just behind the speedometer unit. This is most likely but if you need a wiring diagram, let me know.

2000 toyota camry turn signals not working. Fuses check out and bulbs good.


Hi, i recommend testing the switch and flasher module. i will post the testing procedures for both devices. replace the device that is faulty.

To test turn signal switches, use a 12-volt test light to probe for voltage into and out of the switch. The ignition switch must be in the RUN position for the circuit to operate. If voltage is present on the input side of the switch but not on the output side, the switch is faulty.

FLASHER TEST PROCEDURE---
  • A test light can be used to determine which flasher is used for the turn signals and which is used for the hazard warning light.
  • An easier way is to turn on both the directionals and the hazards. This activates both flasher units.
  • By removing one of the flashers, the affected circuit no longer flashes.
  • Therefore, that flash unit controls that particular circuit.
  • If the turn signals fail to operate and the fuse is good, the flasher has probably failed.
  • Occasionally, the flasher does not flash as fast as it once did, or it flashes faster. This is also cause for replacement.
  • If it flashes too slowly or not at all, check for a burned-out bulb first.
the flasher is located in the Front seating area, driver side, driver side of steering column, mounted in corner behind instrument panel

If the turn signals operate properly in one direction but do not flash in the other, the problem is not in the flasher unit. A burned-out lamp filament will not cause enough current to flow to heat the bimetallic strip sufficiently to cause it to open. Thus the lights do not flash. Locate the faulty bulb and replace it.

Hazard and turn signal


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.
