unplugged hazard switch and turnsignals still don't work
Expert:  john aka eaut replied 2 months ago.

did you change the flasher?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
no, didn't have a hazard switch for a 2003 grand am on me. would a bad hazard switch or turn signal switch cause both to quit working? wont a short in one of the switches cause the fuse to blow?
Expert:  john aka eaut replied 2 months ago.

everything runs thru the multi function switch and they were famous to fail on grand ams

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
if the multi function switch failed, is there any other system that I should check to see if its working? so I'm not looking to change individual switches but rather this multifunction switch. is it on of those deals where ill have to take off the dash to get to it?
Expert:  john aka eaut replied 2 months ago.

well first question is ...did you check the flasher?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
when you say flasher are you talking about the hazard light switch? I don't know what you mean by flasher
Expert:  john aka eaut replied 2 months ago.
