Sometimes engine won't even turn over when trying to start. Hit brake then it will.
Also move flasher around, then turning signal start working again.
sounds crazy.

i do.
Chevy Mechanic: kalamykid, Shop Owner/ Tech replied 1 year ago

With your meter set to dc volts, see if you have 12 volts to the pink and orange wires on the back of the plug going into the hazard switch with the ignition switch in the run position.

No, I do not have 12 vdc.
Chevy Mechanic: kalamykid, Shop Owner/ Tech replied 1 year ago

Not on either of the two? Did you hold the black test lead on a good ground and test the two wires one at a time with the red test lead?

You are right, both of them have 12.4 vdc
Chevy Mechanic: kalamykid, Shop Owner/ Tech replied 1 year ago

That is good. Now we need to see if the turn signal switch is getting voltage like it should. Can you test the purple wire on the back of the turn signal switch and see if you have 12 volts? Make sure the hazard switch is connected and test the purple wire on the back of the hazard switch as well please.

Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Okay, I am getting 12 volts out on the purple wire at the hazard switch.
Can't get to the turning signal wire tonight because the weather is not helping. It is raining out
The signal wiring is cover up to good to get to. Is there anything else I can do, maybe in the morning. Can you email me what to do, please. Anything will be helpful. THANK YOU!
