2003 Chevy Suburban V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 94000 miles
Vehicle as above: right turn signal works fine, but when selecting the left turn signal the entire " emergency flasher/hazzard lights" system flashes - not just the left turn indicator lights. I checked all the bulbs and all fuses and even pulled the dash and looked for any loose or contacting wires - none found. This started about three weeks ago, and during that period of time this has happened four times but the fault usually corrected itself after a couple attempts at using the left signal. Today, after about an hour of driving around town, it started again and has not corrected itself. During todays incident, I attempted to wiggle the emergency flasher and cycled both the left and right turn signal numerous times to no positive result. I think this car has two flasher (one for turn signals and one for the hazzard lights) but this problem is so different than any other turn signal/flasher problem I have had. Though I am an above average wrench, electrical stuff (especially around air bags) really is my weak link. I suspect a short or maybe bad turn signal switch itself. Could you folks offer any solid ideas or guidance from your end?
