Do you have the security system on the bike? If so this is the system working and it needs to be reset.

02 Buick LeSabre Ltd. Rear flashers work (blinking rapidly), front bulbs stay on, inside indicators also flash rapidly. Replaced control module under the dash. Did not help. What else could it be?


Hi there., when flashers/indicators work rapidly on the dashboard you should check whether it is the same on the actual bulds. Fadt flashing is usually a sign of a bulb failure somewhere. If everything is functioning ok externally I would consult a competent technician for a diagnosis.

4 ways are on and can not get them off?


The 2003 Softail TSM/TSSM's turn signal feature provides for Automatic cancellation; Manual cancellation; Four-way flashing and Diagnostics mode.


Turn signals can only be activated or deactivated with the ignition key in the "IGN" position, not the "ACC" position.


If you press the left or right turn switch the signal will activate both the turn signal operation/illumination and the automatic cancellation function. If you press the button a second time the signal will cancel. Also if you have one signal on and you press the opposite signal switch button the first set signal will cancel and the second pressed side will operate. However if you do not press the signal switch button the second time the signal will remain on and will not cancel while you are approaching the turn but will only automatically cancel after the TSM/TSSM senses that the turn has been completed because when the signal switch button is depressed the TSM/TSSM starts to count to twenty after which it will cancel the signal function if speed is not reduced below 7 MPH but as long as the speed of the motorcycle is above 7 MPH or is stopped the signals will not cancel until speed is resumed to above 8 MPH at which time the 20 count will resume and the signal will cancel after the end of the 20 count. The signals will also cancel within two seconds after the bank angle sensor in the TSM/TSSM senses more than a 45 degree lean of a turn action after which the motorcycle returns to a normal upright riding position. As well the TSM/TSSN will calibrate itself after it senses that he motorcycle has been ridden for one quarter of a mile or four tenths of a kilometer at steady speeds in an upright position. ON


The TSM/TSSM also flashes the signal simultaneously as four way flashers whenever the ignition is set "ON" , the security system is not activated and both signal switch buttons are simultaneously depressed. If you have to leave the motorcycle where it is with the four signal lights flashing they will continue to flash for two hours if while they are flashing you turn off the ignition switch and activate/arm the security system but if you turn the ignition switch is turned on, disarm/deactivate the security system and depress both signal light switch buttons simultaneously the four lights will cease to flash before the two hour period is up.


An auto arming feature that is not always active on domestic motorcycles but is user selectable on these models but that is always active on HDI models Auto-arming requires that the four-way flashers be activated within 30 seconds of key OFF or after the vehicle has been disarmed. This allows a vehicle to be left in a secured state with the four lights flashing until they are turned off as described above.


If the four way flashers are not turned of before the security system is disarmed/deactivated then the TSSM will stop four way flashing for one second and then per flash the lights one time to signal that the system has been disarmed/deactivated and then after one more second the four way flashing will resume.


When there is a burned out light bulb on one side of the motorcycle, the remaining light on that side and the turn signal indicator light on that side will flash at double the normal rate after the fifth flash so if that happens check your signal light bulbs.


As the TSM/TSSM also diagnoses for signal wiring short circuits and opens AND for stuck signal light switches if there is a stuck turn signal light switch the automatic turn signal cancellation feature will not work and the signal will continue to flash AND if there is a stuck turn signal switch the four way flashers will only be activated if both of the turn signal switch buttons are held in for more than one second so if the four way flashers are on when a signal switch becomes stuck you may have to hold them in for a longer period of time to cancel them also.


Otherwise if you are having turn signal or four way flasher problems you should check for TSM/TSSM trouble codes.

Why my turn signal lights are flashing no my flht 2002


Is it turn signals or four way flashers??? There is a big difference. With a TSM (not a TSSM) if the four-way flashers flash 6 times shortly after the ignition switch is turned to ON you should check for DTC's that have been set.

No power to ignition, starter, turn signals and enviromental controls.


I'll start by saying the suggested answers you see are provided by the website and may not have anything to do with your actual question.
There is a 30amp and a 40amp fuse in the box near the battery that protects the key switch.
You need to make sure those fuses have power to proceed.
The flashers, horn, and other circuits are not controlled by the key switch.

How to check flasher on 99 blazer


see the next steps and fix it. God bless you
    • 1 Turn the ignition switch on but do not start the engine. Activate the turn signal--left, then right--and walk around the car. If the turn lights come on but do not flash, the flasher is malfunctioning. Turn off the ignition switch.
    • 2 Open the hood and disconnect the black cable from the negative terminal of the batter
    • 3 Locate the turn signal flasher. Depending on your vehicle make and model, you may find the flasher in the fuse box, underneath the instrument panel or around the steering column. It may look like a regular relay in form of a small 1-inch cube, or it might be a small plastic or aluminum cylinder around the same size. Sometimes you have to remove the cover underneath the steering column to locate it.
    • 4 Unplug the flasher by carefully pulling the unit straight out of its electrical connector; on other models you might have to turn the unit around 90 degrees counterclockwise before you can pull it out of the fuse panel. Check your owner's manual.
    • 5 Take the flasher with you to the auto parts store and match it up with the new unit to make sure you are getting an identical replacement.
    • 6 Plug the new flasher in the electrical connector or fuse panel.
    • 7 Connect the negative cable to the battery terminal.

Keyless entry


That has to be done with the special scanner called a Tech2 at the dealer, the scanner allows for an interface to be established with the security module for reprogramming, so sorry you can't do this at home.

Well i put a new starter on the car the the theft light stays on will it fix the problem if i take it to the dearler to put an ingition lock cyclinder in it because my car want start.


Your Passlock may need to relearn the ignition keys, if the ignition lock has gone bad like my in-laws Grand Am Gt, here is what i did so they will not get stranded any more. Buy a Passlock by pass module for around $70.00. You can order one from GMPASSLOCK.COM in the mean time try resetting the Passlock. Good luck

Ignition keys relearn takes about 30 min to do. 30-Minute Learn Procedure
1.) Turn ON the ignition, with the engine OFF.
2.) Attempt to start the engine, then release the key to ON; the vehicle will not start.
3.) Observe the SECURITY tell tale light. After approximately 10 minutes, the light will turn OFF.
4.) Turn OFF the ignition switch, and wait 5 seconds.
5.) Repeat steps 1 through 4 - two more times - for a total of 3 cycles of 10 minutes. 3x10 = 30 minutes.
The vehicle is now ready to relearn the Passlock Sensor Data Code and/or passwords on the next ignition switch turn from OFF to CRANK Important: Turn the Ignition Switch OFF. The vehicle learns the Passlock Sensor Data Code and/or password on the next ignition switch transition from OFF to CRANK. You must turn the ignition OFF before attempting to start the vehicle.
6.) Start the engine. The vehicle has now learned the Passlock Sensor Data Code and/or password.
7.) With a scan tool, clear any DTCs if needed. History DTCs will self clear after 100 ignition cycles.

Without a scan tool you may have momentary starter interruptions while history clears itself. Keep me posted, be glad to know you got your car running 100% again soon.

Need to reset the key fob after replacing the battery


You should not have to reset the key fob after a battery replacement. The signal from the key fob stays the same and is programed to the reciever.
If the key fob needs to be reprogrammed then follow these steps.
1. Have all key fobs with you during programming.
2. Sit in the vehicle with all doors closed.
3. Lock all doors using the Lock/Unlock switch on the door.
4. Insert and withdraw the ignition key 7 to 9 times within 10 seconds (do not turn the key, just insert and withdraw).
5. The 4 way flasher indicator on the dash should flash once or twice.
6. Insert the ignition key and turn it on (key on, engine off).
7. Press any button on one remote and the 4 way flasher indicator on the dash should flash once.
8. If you have more key fobs to program use the Lock/Unlock button on the door to unlock the doors and then lock the doors.
9. Press any button on the next key fob and the 4 way flasher indicator on the dash should flash once.
10. Repeat if you have more key fobs. Only 5 can be programmed.
11. To exit, simply turn of the igniton and remove the ignition key.
12. Unlock the doors using the Lock/Unlock switch on the door and exit the vehicle.
13. Make sure the window is down when testing remotes in case you leave the keys inside.
14. Close all doors and test all remotes that were programmed.

Do not skip any steps or the process will not work.

If the 4 way flasher indicator does not work when inserting the key, you will need to start the process from the begining. If it still does not work the receiver may be your problem.

If the 4 way flasher indicator does not flash when pressing any button on the key fob then the key fob is the problem (dead battery or defective remote)

How do i change the ignition tumbler on my 1989 s15 jimmy


you have to remove the steering wheel, turn signal/emergency flasher switch assembly and a couple other pieces below that. If you have tilt steering the little clip is easy to remove but hell to get back in so if you are not the patient type take a break and try installing it again a little later.The ignition switch should be held in by a bolt. Once the bolt is removed the ingition switch slides out and the new one can be installed.
