Sounds like flasher is defective and will soon need to be replaced
All Bulbs were replaced. fuses all checked, relay switch new and flasher, Also when the relay switch is in it gets really hot. Any suggestions
you would need to check for voltage past the flasher unit and before the flasher make sure the problem is not the switch, or the wiring after the flasher.
tweezers and gfs little hand
I have a 1996 D R and have the same problem. Apparently the flasher switch needs to be replaced.
Replace the Flasher Relay.Replace the Flasher Relay.
Most likely it is the signal/hazard flasher. Where it is located is something I am looking for I recently replaced my turn signal/flasher on my 99 cougar. If you remove the lower part of the steering column and behind the turn signal you will see a black box type fuse. This is the flasher. Just unplug and plug in new flasher. 4 cylinder clld for a 3 prong flasher. I saved over $100 in not having to replace the whole turn signal stick or switch. Check this part first!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Most likely you have a flasher that needs to be replaced.
You di dnot mention the kind of car. Most cars have a turn signal flasher and an emergency flasher.Are you sure that you replaced the right one?
Try changing the flasher. Turn it on and follow the sound.
The hazard flasher on a Mercedes Vito is located behind the dash on the driver's side of the vehicle. Look for a small rectangle shaped black box. The flasher can be pulled out and replaced just like a fuse.
The flasher on a 2002 Alero is all part of the hazard switch up on the dash. I just had mine replaced under GM's special policy for the signal light problem and I asked them where the flasher was.
Some vehicles has a flasher relay for the turn signals and another one for the hazard lights. Are you sure you replaced the correct one?
You probably replaced the emergency flasher, so remove it & try your flashers; if they don't work, reposition the flasher & try your flashers. If they work now, then try to locate the turn signal flasher (ref. repair manual). Or...heaven forbid, you have a short or ground in your turn signal wiring harness (somewhere), where only an ohm meter and knowing how to use it will locate it. Good Luck!
Could be a bad flasher
May be part of the hazard warning module and replaced as a unit
The front or rear turn signal flasher bulb may be burned out and needs to be replaced. The turn signal flasher my be defective and should be replaced. The hazzard lights have a flasher unit of their own. These are found up in under the dash in the steering column area.
Check the flasher for the turn signals which is under the dash on the left side of the steering column . It is different from the emergency flasher.
Signal flasher is located behind the panel left of the ashtray. Panel has to come off and you will see the signal flasher and the four way flasher.
Many mistake the hazzard flasher for the turn signal flasher. Maybe you replaced the hazzard flasher? Also, a burned out bulb will not give enough electrical resistance to the circuit, and result in a very slow or stopped flash. Since your flasher is most likely mechanical, turn on your hazzards and put your fingers over the flasher unit. If you feel it click on & off, then you need to find the turn signal flasher.. because you are touching the hazzard flasher.
its probably a bad multi function switch
If you replaced the flasher on your 1999 Mercury Cougar and your turn signals are still not working, you should check the turn signal fuse. This fuse is located under the dashboard on the driver's side of the vehicle to the left of the steering column.
Your turn signal flasher is probably bad. Even though the turn signals and the hazard lights use the same bulbs, they operate on different circuits. Don't worry ,this is no big deal. Because the turn signal flashers are placed in different areas on different cars, I suggest you buy the flasher from any GM dealers parts department. Have the parts department print you out a picture of the flasher which will show you the part and its location under your dash. It simply plugs into a receptacle. I hope this helps you. Mark Everybody always says its the flasher, but for me that IS NOT the case. I have replaced the flasher and still have a problem where they flash sometimes and then not at other times. And sometimes they just turn off instead of flash. I haven't figured out what it is for sure, but I have been working on the problem. The flasher is a good place to start, but there is something else going on with mine... - Sheldon
The '99 flasher fuse is in the fuse box in the engine compartment and the flasher switch solinoid in under the dash on the left side. Hope this helps. The flasher fuse is located on the kick plate of the passenger side above the fuse box. I actually just replaced one too!
Replace the turn signal flasher relay.
