Check the flasher under the dash to the left of the steering column. It's got about 8 or 10 wires plugged into it.

it is inside, under dash, on left side is a plastic sound protector, mine had 3 screws holding it up, drop this down and straight in you will see a 1" round thing - this is the flasher, pull it out and replace with new one (there are two flat prongs that plug in). It appears this is a well guarded secret!

SOURCE: left and right turn signal

I have tried to find the signal flasher also, And looked under the dash after removing the cover below the stering wheel, this exposed another panrl, aluminum cover to remove, After removing this 2nd cover I looked up below with bright lights and could not find the signal flasher to replace? I purchased the part from NAPA No 34. Assuming this is the correct replacement, I can not find one under the dash to the left of the stering wheel column as Haynes Repair manual also states that location?

The flashers are located behind the instrument panel trim, roughly between the base of the steering wheel and the ashtray, just to the left of the car lighter. To access the flashers, you need to at least loosen the lower instrument panel trim. Just under the steering column there are two screws with star heads. One to the left of the column and one to the right. You need to remove both of these screws. You will need to remove your ashtray. On the upper left corner of the hole left by removing the ashtray is a 9/32 hex head screw. You need to remove it. Once these three screws are removed you should be able to pull down on this portion of trim under your instrument cluster. When you do this it may cause trim around your instrument cluster to loosen that you can just pop back into place with your hand. You won't need to pull down to far on this trim piece as there are still some screws holding the bottom. You should be able to pull it down far enough to see the flasher units behind and just to the left of the cigarette lighter. There are two flasher units and I found that the one on the right is for the turn signals.On the left the other is for the hazard flashers. It may be a hand scraping experience to replace the flasher but it beats paying someone to do it for you. They are easy to recognize because the are silver and round metallic plug ins. The flasher unit on the left is for the emergency flashers and the one on the right is for turn signals. You can place the emergency flasher unit into the slot the turn signal unit belongs until you get a replacement. These flasher units are pretty cheap.

Clicking sound in dash 2010 Lincoln navigater


any lights blinking ? could be emergency flasher or turn signal flasher is it faster than the normal turn signal? if so you may have a signal light out. is it a constant even frequency or a random click? If random id guess a wire is loose. Or a vacuum-powered device in the air handling unit that is out of sorts.

Replace the turn signal switch. They can be fixed if your up to it, but you have to disassemble the switch. there are parts that have to go back in the right order. Let me know. The longer you let this go , you will start to lose the headlights. All the outside lights run threw the turn switch.

Turn signals won't flash. They do come on but no intermittant flashing. Flasher has been swapped out. All turn signal lights come on on both sides front and back.


i think you may have replaced the hazard flasher not the turn signal flasher, the turn signal flasher is located behind the dash on the right side of the steering collum support, the hazard flasher is located in the convenience center.

I have a 93 Lesabre the we can't find the flasher for the turn signals help where is it


If the lights only come on but dont flash, activate your emergency flasher with the turn signal off. Take a walk around the car and see that all 4 bulbs light up. If not replace the faulty bulb before looking to replace the turn signal flasher. The flasher unit is located under the dash on the drivers side of the vehicle. You will have to remove the panel under the dash to get at it.

Turn signal/ Emergency Flasher


yes happens all the time.  I've had to replace mine like many other vette owners.  Order it from gmpartsdirect.com and search vette forums for how to replace hazard switch.  You should find the directions on how to replace it without taking apart the whole dash.  Not very diffiecult.
