    I have a 94 Wrangler and sometimes my blinkers work, sometimes they dont, and sometimes they start blinking and just stop on their own. i have checked the fuses and the wiring all appears to be in good shape. Flashers work fine.

    Frustrated LOL.....

    Sometimes they stay on, sometimes they won't turn on, sometimes they flash sporadically. No pattern to the problem.

    '98 Jeep Wrangler:

    My problem is similar. The left turn signal works fine but the right doesn't blink. Instead, it blinks both lights like the hazard lights. When I turn on the hazards I get nothing. I have replaced all bulbs and one relay that I could find...the one that I think is for the hazards.

    Could it be a fuse? If so, which one?

Hi there,

Both the hazard and the blinker flashers are located on the fuse panel. They pull straight out.

When both turn signals fail, the cause may be a blown fuse, a faulty flasher, a broken turn signal switch or a bad connection.

When you try the turn signals, do they light up and not blink?
-If so, probably the flasher unit.

When you try the turn signals, does nothing happen?
-Check the fuse

Let me know if the problem continues after replacing the flasher.

    Thanks, I will try checking the fuse panel. I think my fuse panel is located on the left side under the steering column.

Hazard lights working but not blinkers

Not sure of vehicle type, but most vehicles have two flasher relays. One for the turn signals and one for the hazards. The turn signal flasher is probably bad. It is usually installed close to the hazards relay. Have your hazards and listen for clicking either near the glove compartment or under the hood. That is where the relays should be.

1998 Dodge Durango flasher relays location

Turn on the Durango and check each of the four turn signals to make sure that the bulbs are not burned out. If you find one that has gone out, replace the bulb and retest the turn signals. When a bulb goes bad on this circuit, the resulting operation can mimic a bad flasher or one that is failing.

Locate the combination turn signal flasher and relay. It is on the left end of the driver's dash. Open the access door and view the collection of relays and fuses. At the left side of the mounting block is a larger flasher and relay. This is the combination turn signal flasher and relay.

Test the relay by placing you finger on the relay housing and activating the turn signal. If you have found the right one, you should feel a clicking as the turn signal blinks. Remove the relay, replace with the new relay and close the access door


Start the Durango and activate the turn signals to check that they each work. The light should turn on and should blink. Also, check the hazard lights to make sure they work.

My blinkers stopped working. At first I had to manually "blink" them, today they wont turn on. The hazards work fine. Its a 1992 roadmaster estate wagon.

Your fuse is blown or the flasher relay is defective or both. Check the fuse first and replace as nexessary. Note that this vehicle has 2 flasher relays, one for the turn signals and one for the hazard lights. The turn signal flasher relay is located on the driver's side, under the dash above the kick panel, mounted in the top of the fuse panel. The hazard relay is located same place on the bottom of the fuse panel so do not get them mixed up.

The hazard relay is located Front seating area, driver side, under dash, driver side of steering column, mounted in rear of fuse block. Replace the one for the Turn Signals.

I need a fuse panel diagram to replace the turn signal flasher. Thanks

Before replacing the flasher does the hazards work, Try wiggling the turn signal lever up and down and back and forth with the key on and the lever in each position. If the blinkers or hazards start flashing you'l need a multifuntion switch. This isnt a definative test if you get nothing you may have a blown fuse. As fas as the flasher goes, go buy one and then you will know what it looks like.
