2000 Toyota SIenna: The turn signals and hazard lights..fuses

Customer Question

I have a 2000 Toyota SIenna. The turn signals and hazard lights just stopped working. I have checked the fuses for both and they are ok. Can you help or do I need to take to shop.

FLASHER


<h3 class=&#34;subhead&#34;>2000 Toyota Truck Sienna 3.0L EFI 6cyl
<h4 class=&#34;white head-w-linesdrk&#34;>The Flasher is located:

Behind left side of instrument panel
lashers are components of both turn and hazard systems.


The use of the wrong bulb can cause the flasher to flash too fast or too slow. Turn signals on American cars use either a 1257 or a 1034 bulb, which are interchangeable. A 1257 bulb draws more current than a 1034, however and if it is used in place of a 1034, the flasher will flash faster. If a 1034 bulb is used in place of an 1157 bulb, it will flash slower.


There are different flashers available to match the head of the bulbs in the circuit. For instance, if a trailer is being towed and its lights are wired into the turn signal circuit, the extra circuit of the trailer lights will cause the flasher to flash too fast. A heavy-duty (variable load) flasher will solve the problem. This usually fits the socket without modifications. If the heavy-duty flasher is used when the trailer is disconnected, the signals would normally flash more slowly. Although heavy-duty flashers will operate additional bulbs, they have one big disadvantage and should not be used unless it is necessary. These flashers will not cause the turn signals to flash slower if a bulb burns out. When a turn signal bulb fails, the driver has no idea that it did.


WARNING


The flasher unit for turn signals should not be switched with a flasher unit for the hazard lights.

To check the filaments of all of the turn signal bulbs and the brake lights, turn on the hazard flashers and walk around the car.


A flasher can be located in the fuse panel, under the dash in the wiring loom, in a glove box, under the hood, or somewhere else.

A fuse panel.


Most flashers are located under the dashboard on the driver's side. When working properly, a flasher is easy to locate because it makes a ticking sound. When it is not functioning, a service manual may be needed to help locate it. Lighting company catalogs generally have pages listing the location of flashers.


To replace a flasher:



  • A flasher features two or three prongs that plug into a socket.

  • Just pull the flasher out of the socket and replace it with a new one.

Hi,

 

Both the turn signals and hazard lights are not working. Will the flasher address both of these issues?

 

I read on line that it sometimes is the hazard switch.

Expert:  stone314 replied 4 years ago.

The flasher should take care of the directional signals and hazards.

Customer: replied 4 years ago.
Do you have more specific information as to where the flasher is on 2000 Toyota Sienna

I am sorry to be so dense, but I have the new flasher, but can not find it. The picture places it on left side under steering wheel, but I do not see it there.
Expert:  stone314 replied 4 years ago.
I actually up in the dash you have to lie on your back to see it?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

I finally found it. Was a challenge getting out, but got it out and replaced and all is fine.

Thanks for your help.
