Default Turn Signal Flashers

The other day I found a flasher laying underneath the car. Its weird though because some of the blinkers are working and some are not. So I ask the question...do the bonnevilles have 2 flashers. If so can someone tell me where they are located so I can replace the one that fell out.
Thanks

I believe 92-99 shares the same design. If so you should have one on the inner part of your headlight. gotta love wireeless... one outside the headlight on the corner, and one in the taillight....actually under the tail.

If you are talking about the little silver flasher units then yes, there are two. One for turn signals and one for hazards. They are both located behind the trim panel under the steering column. Typically the turn flasher is on the left and the hazard flasher is on the right of the opening.

Bill, are you talking about the exterior lamps

Thee Flasher is the last thing that would just be lying underneath a car. These things are practically embedded under the steering column and will NOT (just by chance) just detach itself and roll underneath your car. I think someone else just threw theirs away and it landed underneath your car. What you are describing sounds like one of your bulbs is out. Yes??? No???

Hey look, I just find it unusual for someone to disgard there flasher at the top of my driveway but anyways Im just gonna change all the bulbs that are out and see if that works.

I just thought maybe there was one located somewhere else besides under the dash, but hey sorry for asking. I like to have the facts before I start changing everything.

Well...yeah...he said he found one under the car.... Implying outside. Which made me think he meant a flasher bulb had popped out of the socket or was hanging. Don't ask me??? I wasn't even drinking.

After reading more of the post details...I wasn't too far off. A stray flasher wandering through the neighborhood saw a Bonnie and wanted to hop on board. lol

"That ain't right"
