    Thanks guys for your input about the heater problem last week. Got that fixed. Now I have a new one. '96 s10 blazer, the turn signals just stopped working. Checked the fuse, it seems ok. There isn;t even an indicatir on the dash like when a bulb blows. I'm stumped on this one. Any help is appreciated.

    Need to be more specific. Totally dead? Relay operating but no lights, or no indicators?

    I have (twice) had the left front turn signal and the four-way flashers die... and at the same time the LH rear signal works even with the key off. Switch in the column died/broke, and power is feeding from the fourways to the signal.

    no 4 way, no turn signals and the dash indicators don't light either.

    Confirm that you have power at the fusebox and that the fuse actually flows power.

    Check the connector on the column under the dash (the long flat one) to be certain that it isn't loose. If it is, nothing will work at all with the signals.

    Possibly a ground issue too.

    I just swapped out the signal switch in my (tilt) column tonight. Miserable job, but glad its done. Solved my problems.

    Think I'm just going to push the thing off a hill. Got in the thing last night for something and checked to see what worked. Turn signals now work, but 4 ways don't. Go figure:dizzy:

    Have you checked the turn signal relay itself?

    Sounds like a loose connection, probably at that connector on the column I was referring to. Check it out.

    Doubt it is the relay itself, as 4 ways and signals typically have separate flashers....

    Sounds like the turn signal switch. Pretty common.
