1997 GMC Jimmy 6 cyl Wheel Drive Type unknown Automatic 127140 miles
Okay, I am having the same problem as another user on this forum, I have taken the dash down just enough to reach up under it, but I CAN NOT find the darn turn signal OR the hazard flasher. My hazard flasher clicks and flashes all the signal lamps, but my turn signal just stays steady on, I bought the vehicle used recently and I actually got the original owner manual BUT it does not show where or how to replace the turn signal flasher. I can hear the hazard flasher clicking behind and up inside the dash (near the radio), but I can not locate it at all.
I was hoping to actually be able to remove the hazard flasher and put it in the non working turn signal flasher plug.
On all older cars I had owned these things were, #1. turn signal flasher was mounted in a plug on the end of the wires near the fuse box, the hazard flasher was actually mounted(plugged into) ON the fuse block.
So why have the STUPID VEHICLE MANUFACTURERS made these flashers so hard to find and replace? Shouldn't these be in an EASY ACCESS PORT for simple replacement like in the older cars (pre 1980's)?
I just do not understand why the manufacturers have made this one component so hard to locate and replace when it's a CHEAP PART, not something so major that you need a mechanic to replace it.
Any help here would be greatly appreciated as I really detest NOT being able to signal lane changes or turns until I can get this fixed somehow.
have the same problem?
