Question about 2001 Chevrolet Malibu

Step-daughter just bought a 2001 Chevy Malibu. The turn signals aren't working. I read that is probably the hazard switch on the dash. Any thoughts?

Check the flasher unit and fuses first. The check the wiring from the switch to flasher unit and from the flasher unit to the individual bulb socket for continuity.

My turn signal lights work but my hazard lights don't for my 2012 Chevy Ltz Malibu


The flasher is built into the flasher. If the flasher is on the dash replace it. If it on the steering column, replace the turn signal switch.

2004 Chevy Malibu, both front turn signals are not working. Rear turn signals are fine. Hazards will work in the rear also, but not the front. I replaced the hazard switch in the dash and the problem...


replace both bulbs,, on the chevy they use the new bulbs with the very thin wire that goes into the socket, they have been having problems with the plastic in the socket getting hot and being partially covered, which makes the connection no good,, try this, with a small, screwdriver or if you have one a small pick tool, gently pry the wire outward from the socket,, Just a very little will do the trick,, then put the bulb in the socket, you should be fine after that ,, if the rear lights are working, then nothing is wrong with the signal switch, since they are on the same circuit. your hazard switch you replaced was probably ok also. if this doesn't work, do the same thing on the bulbs,, to insure a good contact

I have a 2003 Chevy Malibu and when the Hazard lights are engaged they flash erratically. Anyone have an idea?


Problem is probably with the flasher it's self. Does the flasher click even after the turn signals cancel? if so, the hazard switch is the flasher on these cars. Replace the hazard switch

No signal lights at all and no emergency flashers


you need to check the "combination turn signal/hazard flasher/daytime running lights module"
it is located in the junction block,the junction block is adjacent to and left of the steering column,you need to remove the lower dash panel below the steering column,then remove the steel knee brace.

Where does the flasher go on a 98 chevy malibu


Replacement The turn and hazard flashers are integrated into one flasher on these models. The flasher is located in the hazard warning switch and the hazard warning switch is located on the trim plate. Replace the flasher by unplugging the old one, removing it from the panel, and plugging in the new one.
  1. Remove the bezel from the ignition switch.

2004 Chevy Malibu Classic and problem is turn signal goes out


the hazzard switch is together with the turn signals, so if they are not working properly, check hazzard switch. the switch has a built in timer for hazzards and turn signals.

2001 Malibu - turn signal & horn problems


Google Service Bulletin No. 04098A. There is a recall for the hazard switch. My car's vin is not within the range, but I have the blinker problem. I was told by the Chev. 800 number that if a dealer determines that is the problem they will replace it. You can also buy the switch for about $20 and replace it yourself if you don't want to have to deal with a service dept.

2003 Chevy Malibu. While driving down the road turn signal keeps clicking randomly.


what this means that either you have a short in the wire harness going to the turnsignal/dimmer switch assembly . or the switch contacts inside the dimmer switch itself are shorting. this would be a good place to check for the intermitant problem
