Default Turn signals not blinking

They worked this morning...

Well I drove home today and now my turn signals no longer blink. In the dash they stay still as well as outside. From what I can see, all of the lights are on for each turn signal. If I put my hazard lights on then all of the lights correctly blink.

Like I said it looks like all the lights are in tact. I can see a light come on in the front and the back every time I make the signal for that side.

Any ideas?

Mine did that and it ended up being a bad bulb on the side blinker so check all your bulbs.

MIght be time for a new flasher. I think the turn signals and emergency lights use dedicated flashers (i.e. there are different flashers for each circuit). They're fairly inexpensive and easy to replace, and it'* not an unheard of failure.

I drove home and as soon as I pulled into my driveway ready to check for burned out lights, it starts working again. I'm thinking the flasher. Where is the flasher located for turn signal lights? Also any good company to buy it from or just go to autozone for it?

Thanks guys.

flashers burn out, as stan mentioned they are independent systems.

both located under the driver side kickpanel in your car.

they are universal and are a couple bucks at any auto store

New flasher fixed it. The flasher on my 92 SSEi was located directly above the cable to open my hood. That is of course right where the driver'* feet would be. It was horrible though - tons of things in the way and it was suspended by a small clip that was hard to get to. Managed it though. 15misn tops.

P.*. The similar looking part directly above where the drivers feet would be, moreso located where the steering wheel would go into the dash is for your caution lights.

I had this happen to me where the blink would be very slow until eventually it was on solid. It was intermittent at the time and I just let it go. It hasn't happened to me in a while though.
