Question about 2001 Buick Century
Need your help men. . .problem with turn signal flasher. . .bulb not burned out. Turn signal acts like it needs bulb relpacement but all lamps are good. Grateful for your thoughs. . .thanks. . .
The problem is the flasher relay. Drop the fiber board insulation below the streering whell - 2 hard rubber screws and one real screw. Pull off the dashboard below the streering column. Look directly below the air vent into a rectangular hole and see a black box combination flasher attached to more plastic. This is what you want to replace. Insert a screwdriver into the hole and detatch it from the other plastic. Who cares if it breaks off - the attached wires will hold it relatively in position. Pull the flasher toward you and with the flasher in hand remove it from the plug. Get a new one and reverse the process. It took me a long time to do this because I kept trying to figure out how to get to the thing. Should take less that 30 minutes. Good luck.

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
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

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
