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!
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.
If the turn signals flash quickly, its because a bulb is out. Have you tried replacing the bulbs? Have you verified the replacement bulbs are indeed good? Sounds like a bulb or two may be out. The flasher depends on the bulb's current to set the flashing rate. If a bulb is out (or disconnected for some reason) the flasher usually will flash quickly or not at all.
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.
The directional signals and the emergency flasher each have their own flasher unit. They are the same type of flasher and should be beside each other under the dash.
check all your bulbs and fuses
The signals and the emergency flashers have separate circuits, separate fuses, separate flasher relays. Start with checking the fuses, the bulbs, the signal flasher relay and wiring and if it still doesn't work it may be the signal switch is bad.
check the bulbs, check the fuse then check the flasher, if they are still dead the signal switch may be at fault.
have you tried replacing the flasher u need to replace the flasher can for the turn signals there are 2 one for hazards and one for turn signals usually found in the fuse box, and cost about 3 bucks
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?
on the Chevy beretta there are 2 flashers one is right next to the steering column to the behind the plastic dash piece,this is your turn signal flasher replace it and your signals should work.
Answer ScottmAKE SURE YOUR FUSES ARE GOOD AND YOUR WIRES ARE NOT BROKEN TO THE SOCKET. CERTAIN DODGE APPLICATIONS WILL MAKE ALL LIGHTS NOT WORK WHEN 1 IS OUT OR BROKEN.
First check all the bulbs. If all the bulbs are good replace the signal flasher relay. If it still doesn't work it may be in the signal switch. The signals and the 4 way have separate circuits, fuses and flasher relays.
If all the bulbs and fuses are good and you still do not have turn signals, chances are very good that flasher is bad There are a few ways but I find either reverse up to a wall or a large window then turn the flasher on. you should see the light bounce off the wall or window.
Need to know the year, make and model vehicle. If the signals are still working, turn on the signals and follow the clicking noise until you locate the flasher.
check the wiring harness for the opt. towing package under your left tail light
More detail: the turn signals slowed down gradually and then stopped working. All lights still flashed when hazard lights switch was activated. The bulbs and fuses are all okay, and I have replaced the hazard flasher (which I think is a combo hazard/turn signal unit). Can't see any other flasher unit under the panel, don't know what else to try. Any ideas?
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.
Most likely a bad flasher
check fuses and relays and flasher and go from there
If turn signals are not blinking on the dashboard but they are still working, the cause might be a burned out bulb in one of the blinkers on the outside of the car. There might also be a fuse burned out or bulbs burned out in the dash. Even the flasher can be the problem in this situation.
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
There two types of bulbs used for the turning signals. The bulbs on the rear of the car have a flasher built into them. When the bulb with the flasher in it burns out, the flasher blinks faster. You can check this on your car by turning on the turn signal and then check both front and rear lamps. The lamp that is not blinking is the problem and needs to be replaced. Lamps are typically sold in packs of two. So replace both rear lamps or both front lamps when you change either one. Save the bulb that was still working and put it in your glove box as an emergency spare.
I have the exact same problem as u in my 87 firebird i dont know what to do
Did you happen to check the turn signal flasher before you installed the switch?
Might be turn signal flasher
