i have a bad turn signal flasher and I can't find it to replace. From what i've been told it supposed to be on the steering column but I can't find it. Is there an alternate location? Or is it hidden behind something?

Where's the turn signal flasher relay on my 90 lumina APV. There's a small fuse box in the glove box but no flasher. Thanks

Ok, here's what I did. I went out and used turn signals without starting vehicle and listened for location of relay. Drivers side uunder dash left of steering column obscured in a bracket attached to some control module of some sort, having a big metal transistor in a heat sink with a wide multi wired plastic plug. If you pop relay out of bracket it will dangle where it is convenient to get to.

Looking at the diagram, it looks below and behind the glove box area. Try and look just above the floor to the right of the Assembly Line Diagnostic Connector and not as far as the glove box.
Wish I could be more helpful.

How do I fix or replace the lights on my dashboard, and my turn signal lights work when they feel like it along with my emergency flashers. Someone told me that I had to replace the steering wheel column to fix it. When I want to turn left I have to hold down the blinker shaft but not if I want to turn right that one still clicks and holds itself in place.

As far as the turn signals, I can tell you that the turn signal switch needs to be replaced. The steering wheel has to come off to replace the switch and you have to have a tool for that.

The dashboard lights can be replaced if needed, I went to replace my dashboard lights and they were fine, so you might want to check the fuse and the main circuit breaker first.

Thank you. Yes I found it. When I was looking in the owners manuals it was saying that the 10 amp fuse was the flasher. And I knew that wasn't right.

My turn signals stopped working, I replaced the bulbs in the taillights, changed the fuse and changed the flasher unit. My 4-ways work, but not the turn signals. I'm baffled at what is the problem. Any help is surely appreciated. Thank you.

I have been having trouble with my turn signal, when making a right turn I need to hold the switch up constantly inorder to keep the blinker on or it won't stay on by itself. Recently, I have been having trouble with the left turn signal and have noticed smoke coming from the steering wheel column when signaling. Now the left turn signal won't work at all but at times does flash only once. I got out of the car and noticed the back blinker still stays lit but doesn't flash (I already checked the light bulbs and aren't burned out) I am trying to fiqure out what the problem is and what the cost would be of taking it in to a repair shop to get the car serviced. Any information would greatly be appreciated.
