Turn Signals and Hazard Lights

Why do the fuses keep blowing as soon as the turn signals or hazards are engaged on a 1997 Chevy Full Size Van?

Sounds like a short in your blinker circuit. There could be a cracked or damaged wire somewhere between your lamps and the fuse box, a damaged bulb, or a bad blinker relay. You can trace the problem using a multimeter. You might be able to reduce your troubleshooting in half by noting if its the left or right side turn signal that blows your fuse and work on only that side. Good luck.

hazards and turn signals have separate flashers. replace flasher for turn signals

that's strange!! my 63 only has directional signals

Yes, they are 2 separate systems with separate flashers.

check out the flasher itself some are set to flash faster than others,switch out the hazards with the turns and see if hazards flash fast.

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.

On a 2003 Chevy Monte Carlo LS there is a turn signal flasher unit under the dash on the driver's side that will cause the hazards and turn signals not to work properly, if it is no longer functioning. This is a plug in that has three prongs, and can easily be changed by unplugging it and plugging in a new one.

A 1986 Chevy What? Need make, model and year.

Is it blowing cold air only or not blowing any air at all.

Sounds like the Turn signal flasher is bad. On those cars there are 2 flashers, 1 for hazards and 1 for turn signals. Most of them were a #552 flasher. A 1.25 inch round silver or gray or yellow object located in the fusebox of those good ol cars.

it is either bad signal flasher or bad signal switch assembly try another flasher, swap the hazards one in place of the signals one if the hazards work right now if the hazrds dont work either then it is most likely worn switch assembly(common problem in these cars) i am working on a corsica right now that has no brake lights except the third one and it is the switch assembly worn out in it, flashers are good in it

NORMALLY this mean a bulb is out, but it can mean your flasher isn't the correct one. Some cheap heavy-duty flashers for towing will do this.

If the air vents of the Chevy trailblazer 2004 are not blowing air, have the fuel pump checked.

There is a short somewhere in the circuit.

Because something on that supply line has a problem

If you feel no air blowing at all (when you are not moving) then your fan is not blowing. If it is blowing air, and it is cold, when the heater is on, then most probably your heater core is leaking, or is clogged. These are easily replaceable and go bad all the time in older cars.

If the turn signals are not working properly on a 2002 Chevy Venture and the fuses seem to be alright, check for burned out bulbs in the turn signals. Also, check to make sure the turn signal flasher is working properly.

No. there is no relay for the turn signals.

It signals the computer to reduce the ignition timing.

Haynes makes a repair manual for the 1998 Chevy Z-71 contains a wiring diagram for the turn signals. This book is available at most major book stores.
