Blinker? Empty
PostSubject: Blinker?   Blinker? EmptySat May 05, 2007 12:47 am

Only a month after installing a new blinker fuse (flasher); it is broken again!

A couple of days ago, I noticed that the arrow on the dash was flashing quicker than usual.

Now, when I go to signal direction, the direction arrow on the dash lights up and then shuts off. All the other accessories work, so I know it's not blowing any other fuses.

Is my flasher fuse defective? I bought a new heavy duty one at NAPA for $12.

I should note that this is a 1991 Riviera.

Appears your flasher unit is defective. It's the silver-looking cylinder under the dash.

the heavy duty one is a good way to see. Most of the heavy duty flashers as far as i know use an electric module instead of the thermo flash unit. Hence the reason why a standard thermo flasher will blink differently when the load changes (ie light burns out).
