You can check the battery, but I don't believe that it's the battery. Check the "multi-function switch" You will have to remove the plastics around your steering column. Then, on the bottom side, there is a big black box, attached to your windshield wiper/cruise control lever, held in place with, if I remember right, three bolts. Take those loose, and trace down the wires. They should run under the dash to the left side. There should be one bolt holding the clips together as well as the plastic snaps. You can't miss it. It's probably two inches across and about a half inch wide with probably thirty-five wires. Unplug it, and pull it through the dash and column. Install the new one. Now, you would probably be safest if you unhook your battery before you did all this. Just a precaution. And be prepared to shell out a couple hundred for the part. It's not cheap as it controls your brake lights, turn signals, hazards, windshield wipers, and cruise control. I believe that it runs 180 at Autozone. Good luck, and I hope that I'm not too late in answering this for you.

A burnt out signal bulb, a faulty blinker relay, a faulty blinker switch, a loose connection or a broken wire are all things that can cause the turn signals not to operate properly.

Probable causeFlasherFusecontrol lever

Yes. The relay that controls the turn signals is built in the switch.

It is your multifunction switch that has gone out. It is located in the steering column. I used my emergency lights and it blew out brake lights, turn signals, and emergency lights. In newer models Chevy did a recall not so for our older models. Mine is a 1995.

Nonfunctional Brake LightsOne possible cause of this issue is that the brake light switch is not adjusted properly, or the switch could be defective.

on my truck on the top of the steering while caseing theres a little black switch if that's flipped just alittle bit it will cause the turn signals to not work try flipping the switch both ways and try the turn signals and see if that works

I would check the blinker bulbs on the side that doesn't blink (front & back). If neither side is working,there is a round chrome blinker fuse,located under the dash board close to the fuse box,it's width is about the size of a half dollar. If that doesn't solve your problem,then it most likely will be either in the wiring or the switch. If it is in wiring or switch,I advise you to take it to a mechanic,you do not want to mess with the wiring or switch,you could cause yourself a big headache and pay A LOT more...

Have a mechanic find the cause and fix them, or do a bit more of an in-depth diagnosis and give a description of the problem if you want help doing it yourself?

Is your headlight switch and blinker switch the same? If so, this is called the combination switch. Sounds like it is bad and needs to be replaced. Not uncommon for these to break.

The turn signal switch is probably a bit loose, so the bumps are jostling it enough for it to switch on.

Your 1996 Chevrolet Blazer may not start due to a faulty ignition switch. The electronic fuel pump may also be faulty and need to be changed.

Next check the turn signal switch inside the steering column. check to see if the bulb is dead

A bad ground wire is the most common cause of turn signals and brake lights not working. The ground wire connection might be corroded.

I had the same problem in my 1999 Mercury Cougar, I replaced the flasher located in the blinker assembly. It was very simple to do. Flasher cost about $10

When this happened to me it was the three vacuum hoses on the transfer case switch were on wrong. There is a nipple on the switch and a hole in the vacuum hoses.

I don't know if your still looking for the answer to this problem, but it is the multi function signal switch. It did this on my 97 tahoe. I almost lost my mind while trying to figure it out. Hi I have a 99 Blazer, And it does the same thing it started about 8 mo's ago,I changed the flasher, And still does it. Someone told me it was from the tilt wheel,The Flasher switch on the top of the wheel needs to be check. Well Good luck. see "link" below

The phone signals coming in or out may interfere with the airplane-airport signals,and may cause the plane to do undesired action, wich may lead to the plane crashing,so next time,please listen

either both bulbs burnt out highbeam only or you need a headlight switch (controls signals, cruise(if it has it), and headlights)

Three possible problems.............. Flasher unit under the dash is cooked. Turn signal switch is broken, or the bulbs are burned out. Check the bulbs first, that's easy. Replace one at a time. Check your flasher unit in another similar vehicle, and then get a qualified auto electrical tech to test the turn signal switch which is the most expensive part to replace.
