Why will the turn signals work only if flashers are on but the flashers will not work at all?

The relay that handles the turn signals is separate from the relay that handles the hazards.

Most likely you have a burned out turn signal relay. Most likely the relay is located in your fuse panel and is a very inexpensive item to replace.

turn signals and hazards have separate flasher cans both look the same and are generally in the fuse box replace the hazard flasher can. they cost about 2 dollars at auto store

HOUNDDAWG ADDS:

There may be a lamp with one of the turn signal elements burned out. If one is burned out turn signals may not work even though the lamp appears to be working when the lights are on.

Otherwise replace emergency flasher or possibly turn signal switch in steering wheel.

I had the same problem on my 2003 Saturn L200. When I cycled the Hazard Signal/switch for about 30 seconds, both left and right turn signals once again worked!!

Turn the emergency flashers on and make sure that they are flashing at a normal rate of speed. Then turn your emergency flashers off and try one of your turn signals and it should work.

You may find that the turn signal switch in the steering wheel is bad.


I have a 1999 w3500 turn signals would not work. Tried about everything to fix. Found the problem was the switch in the steering column, blew it out with an air hose and it work perfect now.


I think there are two different flashers one for blinkers and one for the flashers.


Could be the bulbs or the fuses or the flashers or the signal switch assembly


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.


Hazard and turn signals usually use separate flashers, switch the flashers to see if turn signals work and hazards don't, if so replace the flasher you need to replace the blinker flasher unit it is different from the hazard unit they cost about 4 bucks the flasher unit is the big round thing in the fuse panel in the dashboard
