Where is the turning signal flasher locate on a 1995 Pontiac Grand Am?
First, go buy the signal apparatus so you will know what it looks like. Lay down where your feet go and look up at the black plastic panel. Remove the plastic panel underneath the steering column. It should have four Phillips head screws.
Now get yourself a flashlight and small mirror. There is a BIG trunk of wires under there and you may need to unscrew the one screw holding that in place in order to make some room. The little mirror and light deal will help you actually see things. There are actually two relays (the round things that make the lights blink) - one runs the hazard flashers and the other runs the turn signals. There is a "convenience block" that might be blue in color. It has one round relay and one square one. The square one is the HORN RELAY. The Round is the hazards. Turn hazards on and put your finger on it and you will feel the clicking (assuming it is working). So, if you are after the flasher relay, that is NOT IT! It is a PAIN to get it back in there 'cause you can't see and have no room and are working completely blindly. So, if you don't have to pull it, don't! Now, look more towards the outside wall. You will eventually find, high up and against it the FLASHER relay. If it is OEM, it is round, and metal and hanging there by a little clip. Pull it out of the clip - the whole clip deal may come along for the ride. Change it and then hang it back where you found it or tape it, tie it somewhere out of the way.
Hook the wire bundle back up, put panel back, and you are good as new.
Before doing all the above, check for bad bulbs and fuse. Also, if this relay replacement does not do the trick, the combo switch in the steering column could be bad and causing your troubles. Run it back and forth a few times - that might get it working again and then you can think about throwing 80-100$ at it to put in a new one.
This is a good answer,but i didnt need to disconnect the wire bundle. Once you find the blue box that's right behind the mass of wires,just fish your hands around the right side(looking at box from floorboard) till you feel something round, go ahead and pull it down, Its attached by a clip ,I had to pry the wires off of it . Then i replaced it with a new one which was alot bigger than the original but that was fine, i believe most are the same. I left it hanging so in the future it would be right there, cause it was a pain looking for it till i got this answer. Its a little higher than the blue box and about 3 inches to the right(when looking from floorboard).
The turn wingnal switch flasher or relay is located on the inside of the cab on the firewall. You will find it on the driver's side almost at the kick panel located up out of view (you will have to get down on your hands and look up and under the dash.) There is a relay block here with several relays. You can find the signal relay by turning on the signal light and listening…
Where is the exact location of the turning signal flasher on a 1970 Impala when fuse box only contains emergency light flasher?
I have a 1999 Bonneville SE and the emergency flasher is under the dash, above the brake pedal. You have to remove screws holding the lower dash on get under and look straight up skyward. It is a small silver canister clipped to an internal metal support. Near the steering column. Now i am looking for the turn signal flasher which i have been unable to locate.
Driver side turn signal lights up but dont flash and the dash signal stays on all the time but the other side works fine could this be a flasher or wiring?
RV manufacturers usually locate the flasher under the dash near the steering column. The easiest way to find it is to turn on the turn signal and listen for the click. You will also feel it click when you touch it. If the flasher is not working or does not click, turn on the four-way flashers and try to find that flasher. The turn signal flasher is usually located near it. Hope this helps.
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!
Even though you have changed the flasher unit your 1992 Pontiac Grand Am turn signal turns on and does not flash?
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…
