Exclamation 1995 Chevy Cavalier turn signals dont work

Okay...I am back. No more Bonneville. She got sold after the head gasket blew and the engine locked up.


Anyway, now I have an issue with the car I just bought yesterday. Can't complain about it too much because I knew the turn signals didn't work. And I only paid 600 dollars.


To get to the point. I have a 95 Cavalier 2.2 5speed no power windows no power locks no cruise control. The turn signals don't work. Head lights tail light and hazards work just fine. When I try to turn on a signal the dash nor the actual light come one at all. Hazards work just fine. Anyone else had this issue and what was the problem.

sounds like a flasher module. according to autozone your car has separate flashers for the hazards here is a link to the part Turn Signal Flasher | 1995 Chevrolet Cavalier 4 Cylinders 4 2.2L SFI OHV | AutoZone.com

after searching i found this question on yahoo answers. Turn signal trouble 95 chevy cavalier? - Yahoo! Answers

hope this helps!

Okay. I went advanced earlier and the guy told me to try the flasher. I am guessing that is probably what it is. I went ahead and bought it. Now I just have to replace it. Where exactly is it located?

it should be mounted on a clip on the right side of the steering column above your right knee. The hazard flasher is plugged into a block under the dash. be carefulm you dont confuse the two because your hazard one is already working. The flasher on the steering column bracket is your turn signal flasher. It just slides out of the clip holding it and unplugs .

take my advice with a grain of salt though. i have found that same info in several places, but i have never done it on a cav myself. but those instructions should put you in the general area atleast.

good luck!

Okay. I took the housing off the steering column and looked. Neither flasher is in there. The are both under the lower panel down by the pedals. The hazard flasher is right above the clutch. The turn signal flasher is right above the brake pedal. There is a clip it is held in by and wires that plug into it. I don't have enough light right now to actually get to it as there are other wires and harnesses I'm the way. I will have to wait until daylight to get back out there. Thanks for the help though. Hopefully I can get this done without having my old man do it. Lol

Crystal, I have to give you props on wanting to work on your cars by yourself. Many women are intimidated by auto repair, and the more women that get under the hood and do their own work will put a dent in all those unscrupulous shops that see a girl coming in and think of her as an easy mark to make mucho bucks.

I used to work at a shop, and when I got a woman who needed her car worked on, I always showed them (if they wanted to know) exactly what was wrong, and gave them an explanation on how the problem affected their car. My boss was a real shyster (in his 80s), and encouraged me to throw on extra repairs that were unnecessary when it came to women. I couldn't do it; I'm too honest of a person.

The shop is now out of business, and good riddance in my opinion. Long before I started working for this putz, he went from 4 shops down to 1, spent time in jail for odometer and VIN tampering, and was the epitome of the sleazy used car salesman. Seriously, in 2009 he was selling a 1984 Ford F-150 2wd, 1989 Honda Accord LX, and other vehicles ALL for $3500 ($600 down, $60 a week, buy here, cry here). Most of these he bought for $15 from Adesa, whom handles vehicles donated to the American Cancer Society. I wish I could say I was making this up, but I am not...

I digress. Anyhow, bravo to you for being a woman who wants to know the workings of the engine bay, and learning how to do repairs yourself! It'* amazing how much money people could save by learning even the most basic of repairs! I am always in support of people who are willing to shatter the gender roles of society.
