02 Monte Carlo turn signals not working but fuse is ok?
Turn the emergency flashers on and make sure that they are flashing at a normal rate of speed. Then turn your emergency flashers off and try one of your turn signals and it should work.

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 cre…ate 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.
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 leve…r 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.
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. Check 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.
replace your flasher relay
How to repair turn signals in 1997 Monte Carlo that stopped working - bulbs and relay or flasher were replaced and fuses checked- everything fine -even wiggled signal arm.?
Answer . \nits probably a bad multi function switch
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 probably 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.

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 wh…o knew how to take off the steering column and replace.. Hopes this helps!!!

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.

There are 2 separate flashers.jd
In Chevy Monte Carlo
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 replace 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.
In Chevy Monte Carlo
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?
