97 Sierra, lost turn signals and hazard lights

Unread post by racinjasonparker » Mon Jan 21, 2019 4:25 am

I have a 97 Sierra, and I lost the signal and hazard lights. I have checked the fuses and relays and they are good. I had heard there was alot of electrical trouble in these trucks associated with the switch for the hazzard lights mounted in the top of the steering column on the left side, just in front of the steeeing wheel. Has anyone else experienced similar problems, and what solves this issue? Please help

the turn signal switch is a weak spot in the electrical system. They are a common problem. get a switch and follow the wire harness down to where the switch plugs in and plug in the new switch and see if everything works. If everything works then go ahead and take the switch all the way out and replace it.
