Near your fuses, in the fuse panel you will find a silver/grey colored, often round thing, this is called a "flasher" this is probably your problem, replace the "flasher"

SOURCE: no turn signals............

If you look under the dash on the left hand side you will see the fuse area, behind this you should see a large ( about 1 - 2 inch) black square block. These usually sell for about 10 - 15 dollars each at the local auto stores. This is a link to a picture of them. Carry this into your local parts store and put in the new one and you should be good to go.

Please let me know if I can offer further assistance! I hope you found my answer helpful - if you need clarification please just ask me!

most likely cause will be your indicater stalk (control) needs replacing, most likely because of worn contacts.

did you replace the turn signal flasher or the emergency flasher? turn on the emergency flasher lights and pull that flasher if they quit working you changed the wrong one.

2000 tacoma flashers don't work but turn sig do work!


The hazard switch gets power from the horn fuse which is hot all the time, and from the turn signal fuse which is hot when the key switch is on. The turn signal switch gets power from the hazard switch and both use the same flasher.
So if the turn signals work but the hazard switch does not power the lights, and both fuses have power, I would say the problem is inside the hazard switch.

Brake lights and turn signal don't work???


turn on the emergency flashers(e-flashers)if they work check the bulbs at the same time.if this is good then check the fuses.you may have a problem with the turn signal flasher needing replacing.this is a different flasher than that of the e-flasher,looks the same but a different flasher.usually located on or around the fuse panel under the dash.the brake light problem could be a misadjusted switch or a bad switch.the switch is at the base of the brake pedal and has two wires to it.one wire will have power all the time and the other wire will only have power on it when the brake pedal is pushed.if not then the switch will need replacing.check for broken wires at the switch as these sometimes break causing a problem.

1996 Dodge Caravan 3.8 V6 ...the turn signal don't work. It used to work on some warm days. Sometimes I had to wiggle a little bit the relay and it works. Now, its just don't do anything. Fuses...


you may have a second flasher unit , one for the emergency flashers and one foe the turn signals, some Caravans do . if yours doesn't happen to be one of them, you have a short in the switch itself, and will need to remove the steering wheel to replace it,, be careful, and follow the instructions for air bag safety when working with anything near the air bag,, remove the neg battery terminal first ,, then the positive,, and wait 10 minutes before doing anything else, this gives the system to discharge . when your done, hook up the battery in the reverse order

My turning signal don't work but the flashers do work. I have changed all fuses and they still don't work.


since you know where the fuses are, you also know where the flashers are. the flashers are the same part so unplug the one for the emergency flasher and put it into the socket for the turn signals and vice versa. if the signals now work but not the emergency flasher you know to get a new flasher unit at any parts store. the flasher units are cubes about an inch on each side plugged into the fuse panel.

2004 GMC Yukon xl......If I put left turn signal on, the emergency lights flash. Found a burnt bulb for brake light and changed it. Problem persist. Emergency flasher switch still turns on flashers...


That vehicle has all three switches attached to the same module. Spray a little wd-40 into the flasher switch. Sometimes the slide on the flasher switch gets a little sticky and won't allow the turn signal to work independently. If that isn't the case, there is a repair kit for that available on ebay. the module of course costs around three hundred to replace but could possibly be found at a boneyard for much less. Also, check ebay for that module. Hopefully the WD-40 will fix it. Good luck.

Turn signals not working --- 2001 Cherokee Limited


Check the flasher under the dash to the left of the steering column. It's got about 8 or 10 wires plugged into it.
