Because the hazard/turn signal relay has failed. A defective/intermittent turn signal switch can also cause this symptom.

The first thing I would check is your 'flashers'. Most vehicles come equipped with two: one for the hazard lights and one for the turn signals. Flashers are usually round, but come in various shapes. Normally located in your fuse panel.

There is usually a relay for the flashers and turn signals. It is usually a round metal looking thing in the fuse box. This is usually the norm. I have never worked on this specific vehicle, but they are all simular. Good luck.Brad.

The emergency flashers and the signal lights are separate systems. Each has it's own fuse, switch and flasher relay. If your turn signals light up but don't blink I would blame the signal flasher relay.

On a 1993 buick lesabre my left or right turn signal does not work when you use the switch but when you use the hazzards they work?

turn signals and 4 way flashers are on different systems and use different flashers You would want to look for the turn signal relay, try putting on your 4-way hazard flashers so you can here the clicking noise of the relay, they might be under your dash. In my car it was underneath the dash directly in line with the steering column, above the brake pedal.

I hope you are not driving this vehicle with so many faults? Obviously an electrical system problem. Start with the obvious thing, fuses, then check all the bulbs by removing them and looking at the filament wires and the base to see if they are broken or corroded. Finally check the flasher both regular signals plus the hazard flashers, and replace as needed.

Try replacing the hazard flasher. If that does not work, double-check to see that you have the proper bulbs and fuses installed for the brake lamp circuit.

What would make your Impala emergency flasher button buzz when you use the blinkers or emergency flasher?

The module in the dash is for the turn signals and hazard flashers. It is the flasher unit for both so since this occurs when using either system i suspect the module itself is is a common part that fails on these.

What causes the turn signals not to work unless the emergency hazard switch is on even though the hazard lights do not work on a 1997 Mercury Sable?

I just checked my '97 Sable wagon for a related problem; (HAZARD LIGHTS DO NOT FLASH but my Turn Signals do). I checked the HAZARD FUSE (15 amp), it was fine; I got my hand under/behind the dash and wiggled all the wiring harnesses and harness sockets I could feel, then all of a sudden my flashers started working. Trying to isolate it I pinpointed the problem to the HAZARD SWITCH located above the steering column cover, (PUSH-ON, PUSH-OFF) and wiggled the switch and then they stopped again, and/or started to work again. It is probably a loose connector which will require a total dismantling to get to it. BTW: The Turn Signals and the Hazard Flashers work from the same RELAY, a Blue Ford Relay located under/behind the dash, to the left of the steering wheel. This RELAY is replaceable with a UNIVERSAL FLASHER RELAY from any auto parts. In your case, I would check the Turn Signal FUSE, it that is ok, then substitute the Turn Signal RELAY with another.

What would fix emergency 4-way flasher in a 98 VW Jetta TDI when the outside lights won't flash but the red indicator light on the module lights up steadily and turn signals are normal?

4 way flashers and turn signals both have a "flasher can" in the system to make the lights flash the turn signal and 4 way flashers are controlled independantly of each other try replacing the flasher can for the 4 way flashers it is obvious that the bulbs are ok because they work on turn signals

The turn signals went out on my 2003 Elantra GLS after installing an aftermarket radio and my flashers doesnt work also how can i resolve this problem?

Check the connections behind the dash (Dimmer, clock, hazard, and cigarette lighter) but specifically the hazard lights. If this connection is not made well then it will affect the turn signal. I would also check to see if the running lights come on. If they don't then I do not this this solution will work.
