I would check the fuse to make sure it had not blown.

They are all good checked with test light. I am at a loss on what to do. Never had this problem before, like no power to turn of flashers.

You will need to check a repair manual (physical copy or online) to find the location of the flasher in your vehicle. Mine is under the dashboard on the driver side.

Hello,

Here is the location of the flasher module and the blinker wiring diagrams to help you see how the system works. Here is a guide to help you check to see if you are losing power somewhere:

Check out the diagrams (below). Please let us know what you find. We are interested to see what it is.

Cheers, Ken

Hey ken, was taking car for ride and car not shifting onto high and most of lights go on on dash. Could this be a BCM or computer problem? What do you think?

Today it started with not shifting into high gear. Also all dash lights came on and with turn signals not work in thinking it is a computer problem maybe BCM or ECM not sure.

Hmm, maybe it is related. It can be the BCM causing the is issue. Lets remove the BCM electrical connectors to check for corrosion. Sometimes just removing and replacing the connector helps solve the problem. Here is the location.

Check out the diagrams (below). Please let us know what happens.

It cooled to 92, lol. Checked BCM connections looked good, but have no way to check board out looks good no burns or anything like that also flasher is. Also the relay changed that. What you think my friend? Blessings, Bernie

Not sure what you meant after stating you have no way to check out your BCM, could you repeat it please? I have been following this adventure to learn from. I was just out on LI in July, visiting family. Was warm then as well.
