Flasher Location

  • It's located on top off the fuse panel under the dash on the driver side.
  • Turn signal/ flasher relay is behind left end of instrument panel above the fuse box
Might not be your flasher I was asking this same question about my 95 Ford Taurus. If your problem is your signal and hazard lights not working and you've checked your fuses, the next logical step would be to find the flasher. On looking up this question myself I found that the problem usually wasn't the flasher but the multifunction switch located on the steering column. The best answer I found so far was to spray some WD40 under the hazard warning light switch behind the steering wheel. Operate the switch on and off about a dozen times, then operate the turn-signal switch left and right about a dozen times. Add some more WD40 and let it sit a few minutes. Try again. It should begin to work. One location of the flasher was under the dash to the left of the steering wheel. It was described as a blue plastic cube. Don't know if yours looks like that or not. Hope this helped at least a little.

Answer If it is like my 98 Grand Marquis, it is incorporated within the hazard flasher switch on top of the steering column. Before spending money to get it repaired, try squirting some WD 40 around the switch and push it down and let it pop up several times and wiggle it around. It worked for me when my flashers, turn signals, and brake lights stop working. Apparently, over the years gunk finds it way in there, be it dirt, liquids, etc. Pressing the flasher switch can sometimes initiate the problem. I don't believe there is a plug-in "flasher" you can replace as you may remember in older vehicles.

The signal flasher is located under the hood on the passenger side of the washer fluid filter. If you need to change this piece, make sure you shut the vehicle off and let it cool first.

The signal flasher is located behind the fuse panel in the glovebox. I find it easier to remove the ashtray to access it. The hazard flasher is behind the glovebox on the right hand side and it's a pain to get to.

The flasher is located in the fuse block on the firewall just above where your left foot rests (drivers side) on the floor board.

It is connected to the back of your Hazard Flasher. I just had to change mine. About $65.00 to $70.00. Couple of clips at the bottom of front panel then it just pops out.

Your car uses a flasher which has 2 prongs and just unplugs. They are identical to the 4 way flasher in your fuse box but the turn signal flasher is usually located on or near the steering column under the dash.

To change out the flasher unit on a Holden Astra you must remove the back panel of the rear unit and access the bulbs. If the bulb in the flasher is not broken then you may need to replace the flasher relay system.

Under dash, driver's side. The flasher may be located someplace else under the dash.

The flasher just plugs into a electrical connector. The hard part is finding it. Most are located near the steering column under the dash. If one side of the flasher works, turn it on and follow the clicking noise..I hope this helps you. Mark

The flasher justs unplugs from a connector. Most flashers are located under the dash near the steering column. If one side of the flasher still works, turn it on and follow the clicking noise. I hope this helps you. Mark

It won't be easy to change this flasher on your Lexus GS 460. You will have to get something to lie on, as the wiring is located under headlight. You will want a wiring chart before you begin. From there, it is easy to plug in the new bulb by twisting them out and twisting the new one back in.

They are not. Gemini likes constant change, and Taurus hates change. Gemini is just too full of energy for calm Taurus to handle.

Remove the panel under steering wheel. There will be 2 flashers. Replace one on right.

Unless there was a design change between 1995 and 1997 for it, the flasher is behind the dash where the steering column goes. It's hard to get at and harder to remove. They just can't make these things easy, can they? What you can do is start the signal and follow the sound of the flasher in order to find it.

Can you explain this a little more, please? The 4-way flasher? thanks
