Alero signal/flasher problems

It seems that there is an army of 2002 alero's w/ this problem that are not included in the recall. my car(a 2002 alero) has this exact problem, and i was told by the dealership that it wasn't part of the recall, and it would be $112 to take a look at it and run a diagnostic.

    I have a 2002 alero and the signal lights only work sometimes

  • Anonymous Apr 24, 2009

    I have the same problem, they don't seem to be available aftermarket, either try and get one at a wrecker, or you have to **** it up like I did and pay through the nose at the dealer. It was around $300 CDN. They are a ***** to change too. If you own an Alero, might as well pick up the blower resistor, window regulators, fuel pump and front hubs. I can guarantee they will all need replacing by around 60k. Junk... :)

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

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.

Emergencey switch clicks even when turned off emergency switch clicks evan when turn signals are of


there may ber a recall on this problem, it is caused by the turn sigfnal/hazard flasher combination switch relay in the dash, check with the dealer 1st on the recall to see if it applies if not then u will need to replace the flasher unit in the dash, the switch is part of the hazard button and is located behind the ceter panel of the dash here is the whole recall.

2002 CHEVROLET MALIBU -- In December 2004, GM issued a special policy for MY 1999-2000 Alero, Grand Am and Malibu vehicles not covered under recall 03V327. The policy covered turn signal/hazard flasher failure for a period of 10 years or 150,000 miles (whichever occurred first) to provide a no cost replacement of the hazard switch. GM sent letters to owners starting December 30, 2004. In January 2006, GM will update the special policy to include MY 2002 Alero, Grand Am and Malibu vehicles not covered under recall 03V-327. The policy covers turn signal/hazard flasher failure for a period of 10 years or 150,000 miles (whichever occurs first) to provide a no cost replacement of the hazard switch. GM will send letters to owners starting late April 2006. The actions taken by the manufacturer is sufficient to resolve the issues raised by this investigation. The closing of this investigation does not constitute a finding by NHTSA that no safety-related defect exists. The Agency reserves the right to take future action if warranted by the circumstances. Investigation was initiated on September 27 2005. Closed on January 13 2006. For detailed information & supporting documents, see the official NHTSA page concerning investigation #PE05055 »

Turn signal or emergency flashers wont work. parts store says they cant find a flasher for them. I checked the turn signal fuse and its good. Any ideas?


The flasher is located above the fuse panel. The relays are built into the switch itself. They have a recall on the 4 way flasher switch because it is faulty and causes blinkers not to turn on. Very common Malibu and other Gm problem

Blinkers work sometimes?


There was a recall for this type of problem. I had the same problem and changed the signal flasher, and switch, and still had the problem. Having the dealership address the recall issue fixed the problem for me.

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.
