Hi Im David, It is located to the left of the steering column, but is most easily accessed through the dash panel instead of from underneath. remove the T-15 screw from above the headlight switch, above the fuel data center, and above the small panel similar to the one around headlight switch. All of these are somewhat hidden, and you'll need to feel for them or get low and look up at them.
Using a bent piece of wire or an allen wrench, or anything else handy, pull off the small trim piece that is directly below the steering column. On my car, this is wood-grained plastic. This will expose two more screws that need to be removed.
you should be able to remove the large dash trim panel that goes around the fuel data center.
Unscrew the two T-15 screws that hold the fuel data center into the dash, and it should pull straight forward. There should be plenty of wire to move it out of the way.
The turn signal flasher is the silver can that you see to the right in the opening you just created by removing the fuel data center module. It has a single plug with two conductors on the back. use a small screwdriver to pry it off.

Are you talking about a1992 Seville.? The description of what to do seems different than what I am looking at.
Expert:  david craig replied 3 months ago.

Expert:  david craig replied 3 months ago.

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
My headlight switch is not attached with screws and does not have a removable panel around it.
Expert:  david craig replied 3 months ago.

I saw that video, but I can not see any flasher unit through the openning
Expert:  david craig replied 3 months ago.

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
There is no black box anywhere that I can see or locate by feel through the opening. That video does look like my car.

The Turn Signal Flasher is located just in front of it

Does not look like typical Flasher

Let me know if you need further

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
I found the chime module, but not the flasher
Customer: replied 3 months ago.
Is it black and square or cylindrical and silver?
Customer: replied 3 months ago.
The chime module was behind the light switch.
Expert:  Don 'Mo Lurch' replied 3 months ago.

did you click the link I posted, as it shows what it looks like........
I am assuming, no one has rewired or changed it to a different type, as I cannot see or touch your vehicle

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
What link? I is the chime module blue with a circle of holes like a speaker might have.
Customer: replied 3 months ago.
Like the one in the video?
Expert:  Don 'Mo Lurch' replied 3 months ago.

The Flasher Module will have ORANGE, BLACK & PURPLE wires

Expert:  Don 'Mo Lurch' replied 3 months ago.

s it black and square or cylindrical and silver?

.

Black, square & 3 connections

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
I don not know if any one has changed anything as I have only owned the vehicle for 10years. It does not appear to have been modified.
Expert:  Don 'Mo Lurch' replied 3 months ago.

Then it should look like the one in the Link I posted
Cadillac had a TECH Bulletin to Replace the Flasher Module with a different Part Number, IF the Flasher Module was not loud enough.

You should also be able to trace the PURPLE wire from the Turn Signal Switch to the Flasher

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
I will look again ahead of the chime module. I am not near the vehicle at this time, so I willget back to you if necessary. Do you mean that the flasher module hidden by the chime module?
Expert:  Don 'Mo Lurch' replied 3 months ago.

yes, the flasher is hidden towards the driver, in front of the chime module

do you have Digital Dash or Analog Dash?

thanks......
The Turn Signal Flasher should be in this location
Click Attachment Below

Customer: replied 3 months ago.
i found it How do I disconnect it?
Expert:  Don 'Mo Lurch' replied 3 months ago.

should be a tab on side of plug, that the Flasher slides into
Using a flatblade, carefully pry the tab up a little, as you pull the flasher out of the plug

.

I will be off line today for testing....thanks
