It is a very distracting problem and the only time I can get relief from the clicking noise is when I actually get ready to make a turn by turning on the actual turn signal. I believe the assembly is fine, so it can only be the flasher or hazard switch. There was a recall for this issued on the 2001, but not the 2002? However, during the past year, the problem has resurfaced. Claims with repair orders prior to January 11, 2006 must be submiffed to the Service Contract provider. I havent been to my vehicle since my last post to check the owners manual and I apologize for asking but I know there are relays on the fuse panels.
This was an intermittent problem. Hazard switch does not work either, and most of the time I have to touch the hazard switch to make the turn signals work and by doing this I have take at least one hand from the steering wheel. There has been no crash yet, but I do not feel safe when making a turn and the signal stops working. I don't think consumers should be responsible for poor engineering and design. Fuses were changed and they still fail on occasion. Various shops have no answer to problem, unless they completely fail. He stated if he fixed everything that could possible be wrong with the turn signal I would have a repair bill as long as his arm.
I was on the interstate when my turn signals quit. Disconnect the electrical connectors from the hazard warning switch. For 2001-2002 vehicles covered by Vehicle Service Contracts, all eligible claims with repair orders on or after January 11, 2006 are covered by this special policy and must be submitted using the labor operation codes provided with this bulletin. This new style integral flasher is not independently serviceable. The tire pressure will not sustain.
The vehicle also won't start when it rains, and shuts down while driving. I am taking it back to the dealer 29 December 2004. When I first pressed the button it made a serier of fast clicks then the lights flashed on once and then stayed off. Would like the dealership to fix this problem. But, when the signals are not working, moving the switch has no effect on getting the signals to work again, I was clicking it up can down back and forth quick and slow and they wouldn't come back on. I then took my car to a local wreck-repair shop and the guy fixed it free of charge. Is this a faulty hazard switch or an issue with the relay or its connection? Now I am no mechanic but I am handy with tools and a real tinkerer at heart so taking things apart doesn't really phase me, but I need this car which is why I'm curious as how risky replacing this part by an untrained hand is? First thing if you can help me i will come back and leave a nice tip or donations.
Then remove the four screws that hold the gauges cluster in the dash. Apparently there is a problem with the wheels. I feel it is a dangerous situation that gm - having fullnotice of the risk involved - needs to act on before more consumers experience this as I have. At 57,000 miles turn signals are occasionally inoperative. Gm should be forced to recall this sad excuse for a car. Upon reviewing internet web sites I discovered that there are many other Alero owners whom are having the same problem. Ok the hazard switch assembly is behind the steering wheel right? I'm kind of at a loss of what I actually can do.
The fuel pump was replaced at a cost of 600. It is located to the right of the dash cluster. No repairs seem to fix the problem. They go out randomly while I'm driving and it is very dangerous. Posted on Apr 30, 2010 A defective electronic flasher relay will cause this problem.
You must remove the plastic housing from around the dash cluster to reach. I took it to the dealer but they couldn't find anything wrong. On Nov 6 2002, my driver side window fell down into the door as I was attempting to roll it back up. This car is an electrical nightmare! I have replaced all of the bulbs my self and the problem continues. This morning the left worked for a minute then nothing. It has been happening at least 3-4 times a week and makes me nervous to drive for fear of an accident or ticket. This just recently started on the consumer's car.
Upon depressing the button and repressing it they then worked as well as the turn signals began to function again. I tried to turn the hazards on to get them to work but the hazards out most of the time also. If I push the emergency flasher in and out, then the turn signals work normally. I had a roll back haul it in to a mechanic. The incident date is the last time this problem occurred I haven't driven the car for a few days , but it has actually been going on for over 2 years. We never know when they are going to not work.
