This is an EASY EASY FIX....... But you are not going to believe me but when you do what I say, you will find it will fix it......

Replace the working (DEFECTIVE) Hazard switch. and here is the reason why....

The Turn signals work through the Hazard switch, the switch acts as a RELAY / OVER RIDE. The hazard works as an Override so if the Blinkers are operating correctly and then you activate the Hazards, the blinkers no longer work and the Hazards have a Higher Priority and they work. If the Turn Signal part of the Switch is not working, the hazards still can work.

How do I know this? Happened to my 2000 S40 also...

Enjoy and have a great day

I can't find the turn signal flashers on my 99 Olds delta 88 but I did find the emergency flasher. Does it have one or two flashers because my signal light are not working at all HELP PLEASE!!


One flasher only. Check fuses first. Then suspect the flasher as a possibility. I have seen the hazard switch cause the turn signals to malfunction. Try pressing the hazard button in. If they work and flash as hazards you know the bulbs and flasher are ok. If the turn signals then work you have a defective multifunction switch (the hazard/turn signal/etc switch)

I have an 02 kia sportage. my signal lights come on but dont blink outside. no lights for the signal lights come on on the dash at all. also, no hazard lights.


If the 15A HAZARD fuse in the passenger compartment fuse box is OK, power is getting to the hazard function of the flasher unit. Pressing the hzard switch should cause the hazard lights to flash. HOWEVER, there is an electronic time and warning indication system module connected to to the hazard switch lead and that may be affecting things. If the 10A TURN fuse is OK, power is applied to the turn switch (with the engine in START or RUN) and you state you can select a right or left turn. HOWEVER, the RED/WHT and RED/BLU outputs from the flasher unit connect directly to the front and rear turn lamps and the instrument cluster turn indicators so you are not getting any flasher output. Again, that electronic time & warning indication system module could be affecting things

Turn signal does not work


Hi there,

I'm assuming neither of your turn signals work?

Firstly, check the 15A Turn fuse in the fuse box. If fuse is ok, then operate your HAZARD light function.

If no Hazard lights operate, then suspect a probelm with the Turn Signal Flasher unit.

If Turn signal flasher tests ok, then fault lies within the Turn switch.

I have brake lights and hazard lights. i do not have turn signals. in dash indicators for hazard lights come on, not for turn signals. fuses look fine and i found 1 signal bulb in the rear that needed...


If the fuse is ok then I would look into replacing the turn signal switch. This is not a very difficult task at all. If you have the hazards then your flasher unit would be ok. If there is only one bulb out then you are probably looking at the switch.
