    Would anyone be kind enought to share with me the placement of the flasher unit on my 95 S-10?
    It is too late in the evening to go the the library, and would love to get this done ASAP.
    Is it under the dash or under the hood....and where?
    TIA!!!

    In my experience, flashers have always been under the dash. When you set a turn signal on, you hear a click-click-click sound.....right? Well, that's the flasher making that clicking sound. If the flasher was under the hood, you'd never hear the clicking when you set a turn signal on.

    In my vehicles, the flasher has been found on or very near the fuse board.

    Wow! Thank you!!!!!

    The fuse box is on the side of the dash on the driver's side, and is only accessed when the door is open.

    So will it be near the fuse box or near the cigarette lighter?

    By the way, I have emergency flasher lights that work in all 4 lights, but the turn signals don't work.

    I was told that there are two seperate flasher units...one for the turn signals and one for the flashers....is that true? This came from a trailer guy that wires trucks for hitches and trailers.

    Thanks again!!!!!

    In a pinch, you can swap the hazard flasher with the turn signal flasher.

    Dripping springs,
    THANK YOU FOR YOUR HELP!!!
    The flasher was right where you said it would be...next to the cig lighter! I didn't know there would be 16 screws to get to the thing, but I got it done. It was easy to tell which was the hazard and which was the TS by turning on the working hazards, and placing my finger on the unit, thus feeling the pulse.
    No more angry drivers behind me when they didn't understand my arm signals!
    Again, thank you for your help!!!!!!!!!!!!
