Electrical problem
2005 Chevy Malibu 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 90000 miles

I have a 2005 malibu classic where the turn signals will stop working then all of a sudden start working again. The fuses are good, no loose wires that I can see, bulbs appear okay. The problem comes and goes. Any suggestions, advice, ideas?

Do you
have the same problem?

There is a tail light control relay that can go out and cause the problem you are describing. Here is a wiring diagram (below) and some guides to help you get the car fixed.

If it all check out okay you have a BCM that is going out, I would find a used one and install it plug and play.

Please let us know what happens so it will help others.

Sometimes but if you can restart the car, it sometimes will start working or the next time you hit the turn signal it will start working. I think it is possessed and needs Exorcism! Thanks for answering! I checked everything and it looked okay so I installed a used BCM and BAM! It worked. Thanks again, you guys rock!
