The Monte uses a single flasher unit that integrates turn signal and flasher functions. It is mounted in a junction block that is attached to the firewall just to the left of the steering column under the instrument panel. To get at it you have to remove the the sound insulation panel that is attach…ed to the lower steering cover and then the lower steering cover as well. ( Full Answer )
Why would the turn signals not work on a 1989 Chrysler Le Baron if the fuses are ok and the emergency flashers and other electric components work?
Did you check the turn signal relay? I'm not sure if when you say "other electric components", that this includes the turn signal relay. It sounds like that is what needs replacing. when you turn signal on ,do you hear a click in steering column ? There is a lumen or circular device inside the steer…ing column that turns on directionals.If it is working ,you will hear a click. check sockets for bulbs .Sometimes sockets are bad or rusted and corroded.

If the fuses and bulbs are good what could be wrong if the brake lights do not work but the turn signals and tail lights are OK?
the brake light switch on the brake peda is by far the most likely cause ---but it would be nice to know which vehicle your talking about A Bad or Broken Brake light switch would be my first guess. Most brake light switches are mounted under the dash to the brake pedal however some cars have anoth…er switch there also to prevent you from starting the car until the brake pedal is pressed don't confuse the two. EzForJesus check the break lignt senser located next to your break pedal On my 97 Chevy Blazer, the taillights work, hazards work, turn signals worked, but my two main brake lights didn't, the high mounted center l.e.d. brake light up top worked and my trailer hitch brake light worked but the other 2 didn't. My emergency hazard switch broke off, in it, Chevy has that multifunction switch that controls the brake lights, wipers, turn signals, all of that... there is a connector on that hazard light switch that when pushed or put in it's original place, makes contact on 2 of the lines inside it, i jimmy rigged mine with a screw to hold it in the place it was suppose to be at.... I need to replace that whole switch, it's called the cruise control assembly at autozone, but two hundred dollars is the price and I'm not paying it... Try the "WD40" trick on the Hazard Switch. Use a can with the red straw nozzle and just shoot a little into the area around your hazard switch, then move it up and down, on/off--just generally wiggle it a little bit. On many vehicles (especially FORDS, but others as well) this will allow the switch to fully disengage and return brake lights and turn signals to functionality. ( Full Answer )
If the turn signal indicators on the dash and the turn signal lights themselves are not working but the fuse is OK are the bulbs out?
do you hear clicking noise -as if the inficators were working? If not then go check the flasher relay and its connections.
Believe it or not, it may be as simple as spraying a little WD40 into the directional (where it enters the steering column). Sometimes the switches get gummed up and don't create a proper ground. Work the lever up and down after spraying it in. This will also work down the flasher switch hole of the… flashers have also stopped. A better alternative to WD40 can be found at NAPA. They sell a "brake and electric motor cleaner" It is non-conductive and does not contain any lubricants (so you don't end up with an oily residue like with WD40) Reply to Answer WD-40 is a bit messy. Use Electrical Connection cleaner, which can be found in any auto store. It is designed for this type of task. Answer You need to check your fuses. It could be two different fuses. you should have a fuse box inside your car, should be on the drivers side look in your car manual for the right fuse outlet pull it out and check it. If it is blown that is your problem. Reply to Answer A fuse problem would not allow the hazard lights to function properly. Answer Check the Turn signal flasher, this is separate from the Hazard flasher. Reply to Answer This is NOT true on this year/make/model of vehicle. This type of combo flasher/hazard switch is extremly rare, but Chevy used it in its 1995-2003 Luminas, Monte Carlos, and Impalas. Answer If it is the same as a 2001 Monte Carlo, replace the Hazard switch. It worked for me. My hazard was above the radio. Answer On my 1995 Monte. A wire was brock in the switch and the wipers would only work if the turn singnal was on Answer Its probably a faulty switch. Wiggle your turn signal arm around a bit and see if you get your blinkers back. I replaced my bulbs, flasher, and fuses before finding out I had a faulty switch. Reply to Answer Replacing the switch is a last resort - the most expensive fix for this problem. Answer It can also be that the actual hazard switch is a little corroded. Try wiggling the hazard switch. That made mine work again.. Answer The turn signals get their power thought the hazard switch. The $69 switch you need to buy includes both turn & hazard switch in one unit. Its not too hard to replace, but its a pain because you need to remove the air bags. Follow the proper procedure or it will blow on you. Reply to Answer The turn signal and flasher are combined in one unit on this vehicle. The "switch" is located on the firewall, underneath your steering column / instrument panel on the right (in the pre-2001 models). Power for both the hazard lights and turn signals are routed through this switch. A faulty switch (they do wear out) typically manifests itself by your hazards working while your turn signals do not (actually, if you flash your hazards for about 5 seconds, your turn signals will typically being to work). The part is about $30 from GM onlne. If you take the vehicle to a dealership, they'll find nothing wrong with the car unless you tell them specifically that you need this part. this gentleman is exactly right. that is what happened when I press my emergency flashers my signals would work again. thank you sir.

Answer . THE FLASHER ON THE MONTE IS UNDER THE DASH ON THE DRIVER'S SIDE. IT WILL BE NEAR THE CENTER, BUT STILL ON THE DRIVERS SIDE.. Answer . \nunder the dash on the drivers side. just left of the steering colum. Its a little black box with white lettering on it. Its about a 1"x1" box.
Why would the rear turn signals and rear window brake light work but the rear corner brake lights not work on a 1997 Chevy Monte Carlo when the bulbs and fuses are good?
\n. \n Answer \n. \n. \nin my 1999 its all routed through the signal flasher inside the steering column. with the brake pedal pressed, try wiggling the turn signal lever back and forth or in circles and have someone behind the car see if the brake lights flicker.\n. \n Answer \n. \n. \…ni found the turn signal switch to be my trouble.and yes to confirm problem just wiggle the turn signal handle and watch for light to work.\n. \n Answer \n. \nThe other answers are correct. However, spray WD40 or even better NAPA's "brake and electric motor cleaner" down the flasher switch hole on the steering column. The ground gets dirty and causes the lights not to come on. Work the switch up and down a few times after spraying and your lights will be as good as new. Also... hold a paper towel underneath the steering column in case any of the cleaner drips out the bottom. ( Full Answer )
Answer . \nSame place as the hazard flasher, the button for your hazard lights!

Answer . The flasher is an integrated module for both turn signals and emerg. flashers.\nIt is located in a junction block that is mounted on the firewall to the left of the steering column under the instrument panel. You have to remove the sound insulator panel and the lower steering column cov…er to get at it. ( Full Answer )
Answer . \nThe turn signal flasher on a 2001 Monte Carlo is behind the hazard button on the instrument panel. You have to take out the instrument panel bezel to access it. I found this out through a Haynes repair manual for that car. I have to replace mine and did some research. The turn sign…als and hazard lights are both tied into the same flasher. Hope this helps. ( Full Answer )
It's on the same plug as the hazard flasher, so you have to take off the dash panel, which isn't hard to do. My signals and flashers werent working so I had to take off the panel and put in some conductive gel into the plug contacts to get them working again.

Why on a 2004 Chevy Monte Carlo- the turn signals and the hazard lights do not work Everything else does Can't figure out why it just happened?
if its like the late 90's Monte Carlo's . The turn signals get their power through the hazard switch. It will most likely need replace. Early to mid '00's Monte Carlo's and Impalas have hazard switches that are fairly prone to failure, some reports as high as 60% OE failure ratings. The turn sig…nals are routed through the hazard switch, and when it goes, they both go. Aftermarket replacements can be found on eBay for under $30. Gm needs to build better units, Have you noticed how many turn signal problem posts there are online? Isn't your car under warrenty? Check for recalls. Answer Nothing needs to be replaced. The problem isn't exclusive to GM; it is all vehicles with a flasher switch mounted on top of the steering column. Over time, dust builds inside the switch and pretty soon, the ground gets gummed up. Spray WD40 or better yet NAPA's "Brake and Electric Motor Cleaner" down the flasher switch hole; work the switch up and down several times and everything will work fine again. If the flashers regain power but the turn-signals do not, spray some cleaner in the directional switch hole as well. It works like a charm!!! ANSWER Actually the wiring is frayed a bit so if you wiggle it up and down or do what mechanics refer to as the "Beezer Boy Shake", you should be in business. Keith Leblanc ( Full Answer )
Answer . In all likelihood, in a relay box, under the hood. Failing that, it ought to be in the fuse panel, inside the car.
There is no flasher. It is part of the Hazzard switch assembly. Luckily mine went out under warranty. You need to remove most of the dash to get to the part. I think the switch alone was about $70. The Impala's had a recall on this part, but not the Monte Carlos, go figure.
Why would the lower brake lights and the turn signals on a 1995 Chevy Monte Carlo not work if the hazard lights work?
Answer . First replace your turn signal flasher as it usually only costs 3-10 dollars; the location varies- many times they are on or near the column under the dash.
My 1999 Monte Carlo Z34 left turn signal will not work when headlights are on and when headlights off it works but the radio clock flashes Anybody have any ideas?
Answer . Yea, check the ground in the front turn signal socket. You'll probably find that the ground connection is corroded or completely disconnected.
What would cause a 1996 Monte Carlo ls to not have parking lights or dash lights but the brake lights and turn signals work bulbs and fuses are good?
Check your fuses again because the parking lights and dash lights often share the same fuse; that is why they both quit. Answer Parking light fuse is not in the fuse block that's on the right side of the dash - its in the fuse block mounted to the drivers wheel well in the engine compartment. Che…ck the fuze block under the hood on drivers sidr near washer tank fuze block in bad spot gets corrosion and causes the power to be stoped at that point , unhook block and clean connections. ( Full Answer )
Above the radio there is a button with red triangles on it. That is where the turn signal flasher is. You have to take the dash off to get to it.
The turn signal/hazard flasher is integrated into the flasher switch. A very common failure on these cars.
Why does only your third brake light work but your other two doesn't along with your turn signals on your 1996 Monte Carlo?
\n. \nCommon problem: Ground gets gummed up in the flasher switch on top of the steering column due to dust and moisture. Spray WD40 or even better NAPA's "Electric Brake and Motor Cleaner" (not oily) into the flasher switch and where the turn signal lever enters the steering column. Work the switc…hes a couple of time. Your brake lights and turn signals will work good as new. Also, hold a paper towell under the steering column in case any cleaner drips out the bottom. ( Full Answer )
On a z34 1995 Monte Carlo 3.4L all turn signals work except left turn signal. front left works but flashes really fast but left does not work at all and has a good bulb what could cause this?
In the steering column there is a donut looking switch ring that the turn signal lever pops into. When it fails you get all sorts of weird turn signal and brake lighting issues. Change it out and beware the air bag.

Why would the turn signals and flashers not work on a Mercury Grand Marquis after a jump start if the fuses and circuit breakers seem to be OK?
First check that ALL of your light bulbs are working for the signals. Some models will freeze operation of signals if a bulb is out to let the operator know that one needs to be replaced. Next check the flasher solenoid(s) near the steering column / brake pedal area. They are very cheap to replace. …Also check that ALL of the signal sockets for the bulbs are in good shape. If they are burnt then it is the same as a bulb being out. ( Full Answer )
Answer . There is two clips that you have to take off the back of the headlight. then the whole thing will come out so you can get to the light that you are trying to replace.
Car Speakers . \nThe make of car really doesn't matter as far as a speaker is concerned except its size. One of the primary reasons a speaker may stop working is that it could have blown. What this means is that a an electrical surge may have occured somewhere sending too much power through the s…peaker thus damaging the circuitry. Another possible cause is a wire may have come loose and just simply needs to be reconnected. ( Full Answer )
Why would the turn signals not work in a 1996 Dodge Grand Caravan although you have 4-way flashers and all fuses checked out ok?
Turn Signals DONT work , but 4-ways DO If I understand your question, your 4-way flashers work ["...you have 4-way..."] and "...fuses...OK?" However, the turn signals do not operate at all. Based on what does work, just about all the system except the turn signal selector SWITCH itself. Ther…e's your answer, the selector switch, or possibly the connector or wire FROM the switch. It could be the flasher for the turn signals. 1996 Caravan uses a separate one for 4-ways. I had this same problem. Wiggled the relay, took it out of socket and tapped it, then plugged in and out several times to make sure terminals were contacting correctly. Works now. At the same time the light for the cruise control came back on, it did not work before I messed with relay. I do not know what the connection between those two conditions would be, unless the power to the cruise control button comes from the turn signal circuit up through the multi-function switch. May have been unrelated. Mike ( Full Answer )
You have to jiggle the turn signal switch on your 95 Chevy Monte Carlo to get the brake lights to work Also either the turn signals work or the brake lights work Why is that?
\n. \n answer \n. \nThe brake lights are wired through the turn signal switch so that when you have the brakes applied and activate your turn signal the brake light goes out and starts flashing. Your turn signal switch is defective and needs to be replaced.\n. \n. \n answer \n. \nIts pr…obably not defective... 95 and up Monte Carlos are notorious for the the flasher switch ground getting gummed up with dust and moisture. Spray WD40 or better yet NAPA's "Brake and Electric Motor cleaner" down the space around the flasher switch on top of the steering column. Work the switch up and down several times as you're doing it. All lights should be good as new. ( Full Answer )
1993 LeBaron signal bulbs ok and flasher is new and 4 ways work as well the fuse ok but no signals when you turn on signal lever?
Answer There is a separate flasher for the turn signals that looks the same as the 4 ways. Your's is probably bad. Check your owners manual or your Chrysler dealer for its location under the dash.
under the top steering wheel cover is whats called the tun signal malfunction switch. that's what your looking for. its usually at the base of the turn signal operation arm(thing used to turn the signals on) or under the steering wheel on the steering column.
Answer . \nIf none of them work it is a bad Flasher Relay. Replace it.
Answer . Check bulb (double filamented smaller for turn signal larger for parking/tailight). Check socket for corrosion. Replace turn signal flasher. or check ur hazard light button i had the same problem
Why don't the brake lights work when tail lights turn signals emergency flashers and 3rd brake light do on my 1996 Chevy Monte Carlo?
Answer . First thing I'd check would be the fuse for the stop lights. If it is okay the next thing I'd check would be the stoplight switch located under the dash where the brake pedal is suspended.
Your 1997 Suburban turn signals on the dashboard blink rapidly and but the back signals lights and brake lights don't work Bulbs and fuse are ok what should you do?
Answer . Answer Usually when the flasher blinks rapidly it's about finished. Try replacing the signal light flasher and see what happens. If you still don't have Brake Lights start looking for a short.
Why are the instrument cluster lights are out The fuse is ok The hazard switch is snug The turn signals work Could it be the dimmer switch?
I would first re-check the fuse...I would replace the one you have in-line...why not?. Secondly, I would check the light switch on the dash. This massive switch has about 16 wires conneted to it. It operates the lighting system completely. Turn it back and forth a bunch of times and see if you get …a flash of light. If that doesn't work...check the dimmer switch and see if it dims the center lights (the radio, heater, gear shifter, etc.) if they fade in and out, its not your dimmer. If that doesn't work, you need to remove the steering wheel, and slide back the instrument cluster. Without pulling the cluster all the way out, check for any loose connections...never pull connections out to check connections, always push in. If you don't get any reactions...grab a wire, preferably with an alligator clip at each end...take one end of the wire and ground it to the chassis. Take the other end and place it on each metal screw and see if that works. It could be as simple as a bad ground wire.. Bad ground wires seem to appear more often during cold winter months....the plastic and thin wires get brittle when they get cold.. I would think one of the above should solve the problem...or, maybe all of the bulbs burned out at the same time...not likely, but something to check. ( Full Answer )
Why do brake lights not work on 95 Monte Carlo when flashers work turn signals work fuses good and brake switch checks good?
You probably need a new turn signal switch. I have a '96 Monte Carlo and I had to replace the turn signal switch to get the brake lights to work. Thankfully I had a brother who knew how to take off the steering column and replace.. Hopes this helps!!!
I can't say for your specific year but I was just working on a 94 model and on the right side of the bike is the fuse block and the top fuse which is 15A powers both the turn signals and the brake light.
If you're sure the fuse is okay, the next thing to check is thebulbs. If the bulbs are okay, the problem could be the turn signalrelay, also called the flasher relay.
I have a 1998 Monte Carlo LS and have problems with the turn signals. I having to hold the lever half way down to signal.The signal nor the brake lights work.What's upas the Fuses are fine?
You have a combination switch that is defective. The turn signal switch cancel one side from blinking so the oyher stays on solid.
I have a 96 Monte Carlo my brake lights turn signals and my rear center brake light don't work all fuses and relays have been changed what could it be hazard switch multifunction switch?
I would not think it is the Hazard switch. The one thing all these have in common is ground. Check all your ground connections.
Possibly a defective Flasher Relay. Replace it. Can also be a turn signal switch going bad. You can try cleaning it with a spray electronic cleaner.
The brake light switch is bad, look on top of the brake pedal under the dash and you will see the switch, replace it and you will have brake lights.
Lack of Electrical Power in a Circuit What you describe suggests that the problem has something to do with what is called an "open circuit condition." IF the problem is not an open ["burned out"] fuse, then it is probably one or more of the following : A connector in that circuit has become "u…nplugged" / disconnected. The contacts within a connector have become corroded so that current can't flow. The contacts within a connector have become "loose" and don't make adequate contact. A conductor [wire] in that circuit has been cut or broken. Another possibility is that the "flasher"module [a type of relay] has become defective. There are probably a few more causes that I can't think of right now ( Full Answer )
open your hood and unscrew the plastic wing-nuts behind your light. pull the whole light assembly out(wires will still be connected) and find the connection behind the light. you should just need to turn it a quarter turn and it will come out. the bulb should be attached to the wire and should just …slide out. put some bulb grease on the new bulbs connection(optional) and replace. reverse steps to re-assemble ( Full Answer )
Theres this plate at the bottom of your steering colomb, inside it actually, that has the contacts that work all the signals/ brakelights and the like. It apparently wears out after a while. if you fiddle with the turn signal the brake lights will work.you have to take the steeringwheel off and repl…ace the sucker to really fix it. Just watch your tail lights in a store window to see what i mean, shake the turn signal thingy and your lights will work. ( Full Answer )
Why would the turn signal on your 1998 Monte Carlo no longer work the fuse seems fine and the front light bulbs have been changed?
i have a 96 Monte Carlo and i had the same problem. try pulling the turn signal switch to you slightly while in the signal position. works for me every time.
Why would the turn signals work on a 1995 Chevy Monte Carlo but not the brake lights or tail lights?
Rear loom ground not contacting. Bulbs burned out or missing. Brake light switch or connection to it is fubared.
Could be a fuse or could be a bad bulb. See sources and related links below for bulb part numbers.
