problem #3

Malibu V6

Sometimes when I turn on the blinker nothing happens. Sometimes the blinker works. Sometimes it makes a crazy screeching noise. Sometimes it decides to blink REALLY fast.

So to get the blinkers to work when they are malfunctioning, I have to very lightly press the hazard lights button. Works every time, but it can be hard to do while driving.

ok so we were in Van City and i'm on a single lane road trying to turn left but there was a lot of traffic. my left blinker stopped working suddenly and now i'm getting honked from behind and yelled at by pedestrians. In a panic I forced my turn and was gonna do a U -turn to go back home as i was not far. There was a bus that almost T-boned me because my blinker was not on and he assumed as would anyone that i wasn't turning...Yea there are other stories too about not having a blinker but this one was the scariest...The dealer replaced it once because of a recall but they replaced it with another piece of crap ... anyways, what we do now is, if the signals stop working, we fidget with the hazard button a bit, pressing it on and off, and suddenly it starts working again...sometimes it's a biotch though....

I have a 2002 Malibu. The turn signals and flashers do not turn off. Brought the car to the dealer and had the flasher unit replaced under the service letter. When I left the lot, I immediately saw that this did NOT correct the problem. However, now the dealer wants me to pay for a diagnostic. GM tells me that the car is no longer under warenty and that there is nothing that they can do until I get and pay for the diagnosis. A review of some internet posts indicates that this is very common and the the fix involves replacing the multi-function switch (over $300 in parts and labor). Wonderful! GM cons the NHTSA into dropping the recall investigation by offering a free fix but the fix does nothing.
