    no,but i would change the hazard switch while you got it apart because these cars have a recall on the hazard switch which does the same thing save yourself the trouble of taking the radio out again to perform this task 99% sure of this problem.

My signals on my 2002 olds alero only work, after I push the hazard button, how do i fix the signalsoldsmobile problems


Check the fuse for the directional signals and replace if blown Also try replacing the directional signal flasher. This is different from the one that controls the emergency flashers. Consult your owners manual for the location. U

My blinkers are working properly, however, I get a fast blinking sound. Would buying a new emergency flasher correct this problem? The flashers are currently workiing.


There are usually two different flashers for the 4-way and turn signals.
Before you replace the flasher, make sure all your bulbs are working.

2000 alero turn signal and the hazzard dont work what is the problem


Good Evening, this is a common problem and you would be best to check with your local dealer to see if the recall (replacing the hazard switch) has been done. Your hazard switch is also your turn signal flasher and your hazard flasher all in one switch. Try playing with the button while you have your turn signals on, there is a good chance you will notice it may work sporatically. Hope this helps.

2003 Oldsmobile Alero Flasher fuse


I have a 2001 Oldsmobile Alero, Its located behind the hazard button to the right of the speedo cluster. If you have a clicking noise as if your turn signal was on or hazard buttons pressed. Its not your flasher problem. I had to tear apart half the dash and found out that was not problem. Its the turn signal/ wiper switch located on top the steering column. Its very easy to change. The top piece above the turn lever and wiper lever just snaps out. One torx screw holds it in. Unscrew then lift up there are a few wire plugs in the back. Lift up on the wire tabs and pull plugs out. Reverse order to replace with new part that I bought from Napa auto parts for around $150. You can do this if you have very novice skills and 1 torx bit tool. If can help in any other way, just let me know and good luck.....YOU CAN DO IT!!!!

Flash signal


Hi,

To my knowledge the turn signal flasher for a 2001 Oldsmobile Alero is part of the Hazard Flashing switch. It is actually a 4 way flasher unit in one assembly.

Additionally, there was a recall order for 1999-2002 Alero models due to electrical issues which includes signal lights. You can try calling Oldsmobile at 1-800-630-6537. The Ref. No. is 04098A issued Jan. 11, 2006. Accordingly, the repairs will be made at no charge to the customer. The special policy covers warranty repair (for such problems) for a period of 10 years or 150,000 miles (240,000 km), whichever occurs first.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
