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.

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.

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.

How do you fix a turn signal flasher on a 1993 Chevy cavalier Z-24 6 cylinder automatic?

I had this problem also, it started out with both turn signals would blink really slow, speed up, or just stop while I still had them engaged. After a month or so they stopped working all together along w/ my hazards. I had to have the relay replaced which entailed a new "blinker switch" that also is home to the cruise control functions. The part (which includes the necessary wiring) was around $110.00.

1989 Chevy Corsica has no heat or defrost or blowing at all why?

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.
