turn signal lights don't work anymore. They worked off and on but now they don't work at all. The hazard lights still work. Is it the flasher, and if so where is it located, under the dash or under the hood.
Do you
have the same problem?

I have a 2000 Dodge Durango and need to replace the flasher relay for the turn signals. Already check fuses under hood and fuse on driver side just to left of the panel. Where can I find this relay?

These are usually under the dash, or at least in all my chevys. I am not a dodge person, but I believe if you remove the kick panel under the steering wheel you will find it. I coulod be wrong

Be very careful. I had a shop fix mine, and now interior lights, heated mirrors, rear wiper do not work.
Now some shops are telling me it could be the Power Control Module needs to be reprogramed or new.

Check the light socket and make sure it isn't damaged. Also, check wiring to the light.

Turn Signal Relay location

Got a new relay from the dealer. Also got a general description from the dealer of where the relay is at. I found online that it should be in the fuse/relay panel on the side of the dash (drivers side). Well I've checked the panel, it's not there.

Also pulled off the steering column cover and removed the turn signal switch. Still can't find where the relay is located. Can anyone help? The diagram posted on this site does not show where my relay is located!

It is located on a fuse block attached to the main block behind the driver side access door. The relay is accessable from under the dash, its way up high on the fuse block and its green in color. There may be bundles of wires blocking its access, having small hands would help also.

This situation first started with the combination flasher unit buzzing when using turn signal. Same situation happened a couple of years ago. The problem was corrected the first time by replacing the combination flasher unit (Tridon EP-27). Figured I've seen this before. I again replaced the combination flasher unit with another Tridon EP-27. This time the problem was not fixed. Now there are no turning signals, hazard lights, or dash indicator lights. All of the parking lights, headlights, and brake lights work correctly.

Looked at the wiring schematics and found two power inputs - one all time and one from ignition. Could not find voltage on any the 5 connector for the flasher unit. Both fuses are good. Questions.

First if you have a trailer wiring then chek that for being shorted or grounding out. Then in the power dist center fuses F-G-6 should be good an d16 in junc block. It also looks like there is a timing ckt relay there, that may have gone bad. Make sure to chec that ther eis power goin gin and out of turn sig switch. An dfinally turn your hazards on to make sure yo udon't have an y bulbs burnt out. If your hazards dont work then check the trailer harness. Also check the grounds LH dash an dfront fenders both sides an dbody in back.

I have recently replaced the multifunction switch, clock spring, and 4 way flasher fuse. My hazards will not work. With the flasher switched on the blinkers will not work. When I was replacing the multifunction switch (before I actual replaced the part) the flashers worked briefly. What do I need to check next? There does not seem to be any wires melted around the steering wheel.

Now replace the most likely culprit, the electronic flasher assembly. It's plugged in on the left side of the dash.

By "blinkers", do you mean turn signals or 4-way hazard flasher?

Passanger side turn signal works erratic. When the brakes are applied the passanger side turn signal blinks fast, also the back up lights come on on both sides but are dim.I switched the rear brake light assembly to see what happened and it done the same thing, but everything on the driver side works correct except for the back up light lighting up when the passanger side turn signal is on and the brakes are applied, I have changed several bulbs to see if that would help, nothing changed.I also made sure all the bulbs were correct

Usually, a fast flash indicates a burnt out bulb. However, when you mentioned the back up lights come on dim, that tells me there is a ground problem. What is happening is the ground for the signal is lost. Electric takes the easiest way out and in this case it finds a ground through the back up lights. Check for broken ground staps, broken or damaged wires.

Let me know what you find.

My left turn signal functions normally when parking and headlights are off. When I turn them on the turn indicator (left side only) stay on and does not blink. I changed all of the bulbs but that did not work. Any ideas? Thanks!

This is normally caused by faulty ground wiring. Check grounds at the bulb housings as well as at the headlight switch.

Turn signals blink a few times and then stop working and sometimes don't work at all. No problems with fuses or bulbs. The 4 way emergency lights work though when I hit the switch. Any ideas on what could be causing the blinker issues?

I would suspect the multi-function switch. The switch that controls the turn signals, windshield wipers, high/low beams, if you order one be sure to tell the person that you are ordering it from if the vehicle has a tilt steering column, delay wipers and cruise control because it makes a difference. Next time they quit working try to giggle the switch a little and see if it changes.

2000 Dodge Durango: The turn signal relay is clicking continuously. The lights on the dash are not flashing with it, neither are the lights. All the lights, on the dash and outside, work correctly when selected by either the multifunction switch or the hazard switch.

Are you sure it it the turn signal relay that is clicking and not something else?
Any indicator lights showing?
