It might be your clockspring. (actually most likely it is your clockspring) try turning the turn signals on and turning the wheel from left to right all the way and then back again. you should hear a click noise in the steering wheel and the turn sigals should stop blinking if not your tab or something is not right on the clockspring. this requires removing the steering wheel and some special tools as there is a spring in your steering column. good luck The multifunction switch is bad. This is the switch that controls the trun signals, wipers, and cruise control. It is a multifunction switch Problem. This is the switch that controls the trun signals, wipers, and cruise control. The assembly is easy to change if you have any skills.... Took me only 50mins and my dealer wanted to charge an 1hr and 1/2

Why doesn't the signal lights work on a 1999 Pontiac Sunfire?

Well, if none of them work, (front or back) I'd suspect a fuse or the flasher. Do the 4 way emergency lights work? If so, they operate on a separate flasher and this would indicatethat the turn signal flasher is bad.

What could be the problem with a 2000 Audi A6 Quattro if the signal lights work sometimes and sometimes they do not?

The first and least expensive thing I would do is replace the turn signal flasher. If the flasher is weak, then it could act-up just as you have suggested. The turn signal flasher is a separate system then the four way or hazard flashers even though they use the same bulbs. Generally, the turn signal flasher (which simply plugs in) is located near the steering column but on your model I would suggest you purchase it from your dealer and ask them to print out the picture of the flasher which will show you it's location. I you. Mark

A short would blow a fuse. I would check the flasher which is under the eash on the drivers side. The emergency flasher is different from the turn signal flasher.

Check your turn fuse. Or the connection between the flasher and the turn signal. Sorry I mean check the connection between the flasher and the turn signal switch.

What would cause a 99 cougar no turn signals or hazard flashers?

Most likely it is the signal/hazard flasher. Where it is located is something I am looking for I recently replaced my turn signal/flasher on my 99 cougar. If you remove the lower part of the steering column and behind the turn signal you will see a black box type fuse. This is the flasher. Just unplug and plug in new flasher. 4 cylinder clld for a 3 prong flasher. I saved over $100 in not having to replace the whole turn signal stick or switch. Check this part first!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The turn signal flasher and the emergency flasher are both located behind the lower panel under the dash. They are placed aprox below the radio. The lower dash panel must be removed. I would recomend replacing both flashers while your in there.

Why would the signal light turn on but not blink on 1995 sunfire?

I'd guess that either there is a burned out bulb on that side of the car, or your flasher has died. The flasher would affect both sides of the car though.

On a 1995 Buick Century Custom why would the turn signal indicator in dash flash slowly and then fast?

Sounds like a weak turn signal flasher

If the signal lights are not working on a 1996 Monte Carlo Z34 and no flasher or signal light indicator on the dash would this be because of a burned out bulb or would the flasher need replacement?

Before replacing the flasher you should check the fuses inside the car and in the engine compartment including fuseable links, then check for voltage in the flasher connector with the switch on, it may be that your switch is the problem. Newer cars use lighting control modules which would be the next place to check.

Why can the flasher sound still be heard when the turn signals aren't on on a Suzuki Esteem 2001?

I don't know if this is what's going on with your Esteem, but I was getting what sounded like my turn signal was on when it wasn't. I finally realized that the sound was coming from the radio antenna. the antenna would 'waggle' from movement or even just wind and would make a rhythmic clicking sound like a turn signal
