Because the turn signals are a completely separate curcuit from the emergency 4 way lights. The turn signal wiring has a short that causes the fuse to blow out. In order to find that short, you need a technician that specialises in electrical wiring repairs, because you could spend days trying to find it and fail. It will cost some money but less than the value of the truck, or a traffic ticket for "no signals."

The signal and 4-way flashers are behind the lower dash panel, aprox under the radio. The lower dash panel must be removed to gain access to the flashers.

If your referring to the emergency flashers.... it'snactually in the turn signal switch. i have a 94 mercury cougar xr7 and when i bought it the emergency flashers did not work. i in the end i had to replace the entire turn signal switch in the steering column.

The turn signals on a 91 caprice do not work, the emergency flashers do.

There are two relays, one for the emergency flashers, and one for the turn signals. Your turn signal flasher is defective and needs replacing.

Go to Autozone.com and you can find out what flasher, and where it is located. :)

The Fiero has two flashers from the factory, the signal light flasher and the emergency or four way flasher. These are identical GM style two prong flashers. There are many quality levels and even a few novelty flashers available.

Usally the triangle is emergency signal lights, or flashers.

There are two flasher relays side by side. One is for the signal lights, the other is for the emergency flashers. They are the same relay so you can swap the two and see if the problem your having changes when you try to operate them.

Not sure what vehicle you have but with most vehicles the signals and emergency flashers are separate circuits. Each have there own fuse and flasher. Check fuses, bulbs and flashers. If all checks okay it may be the signal switch at fault.

Some cars have two flashers, one for the signals and the other for the emergency flashers. Be sure you replaced the right one. Also check the fuse the bulbs and lastly the signal switch.

Same flasher for left and right signals but a different flasher for the emergency flashers.

There seems to be a short to ground in the wiring somewhere.

The signal and emergency flashers are located behind the lower dash panel aprox in the center. You need to remove several small screws to drop this plastic panel. Once it is off the flashers are visable.

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.

There is two flashers involved, one for the signals and one for the emergency flashers. Perhaps you changed the wrong one.

No, there is only one flasher which works both the turn signals and emergency flasher. It is located on the drivers side, under the dash, above fuse block, mounted on kick panel.

No gurarantees, but most car signal flashers are plugged in at, or near the fuse box - try there.

Turn signal flasher is under the dashboard beside the steering column. Flasher unit for the emergency flashers is on the other side of the steering column.

The signal light circuit is separate from the emergency flashers. First check for a blown fuse, then check the signal flasher relay.
