Have that problem now - auto stores don't sell replacements. So far, I've traced it to the flasher assembly on the emergency flasher switch. But I need to see how to remove that switch and see if either the contacts are flakey, or the internals of the flasher are bad. If you have had this problem fixed, please let me know as well. David I fixed this problem a few months ago by buying a new flasher module at the dealership. To replace it, I used a screwdriver to pull the emergency flasher button off. Luckily for me, the button didn't just pop off, but instead the whole assembly slid out. I did just get a recall in the mail about last week on this. You should be able to get it replaced for free now.

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.

If your turn signal flashers stopped working, play with the emergency flasher button on top of the steering column. Our 97 Sable turn signals quit once and luckily I pushed the emergency flasher button in and out many times and the signals have worked ever since. But the emergency flashers don't work, but I can live with that.

You need to check the fuse box, it everything is fine there. You have to test the relay.

It has one flasher that controls both the turn signals and the emergency flashers. If the turn signals are working then the flasher is not your problem. However the flasher relay is located on the drivers side, under the dash, above the fuse block, mounted on the kick panel.

Emergency flashers are a separate circuit. I would replace the turn signal flasher relay. To find it, switch on your turn signals and follow the sound. The flasher is probably worn. I hope this helps.AnswerWhat he said, or you have a bulb out...
