Turn signals only work some of the time and make a loud buzzing noise sometimes you can make them work by pushing the four way flashers but it is only a temporary fix.. I believe this is a serious safety issue and there should be a recall for this problem. There is also a clunking noise coming form the steering column/front end.

problem #4

May 192009

Monte Carlo

  • 40,000 miles
Turn signals operate erratically or not at all mostly during warmer weather. Pressing the hazard light button on for about 3 seconds usually makes them start working again but creates a distracted driving condition when trying to let your intentions known to other drivers. Symptoms are no blinking, slow and changing blink speed, and excessively fast blinking.

Turn signals fail to work on my 2001 Chevy Monte Carlo. I find myself in many situations of putting myself at risk since they do not work.

problem #2

Nov 252006

Monte Carlo 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 79,000 miles
Traffic signals constantly fail to work, used to be able to push hazard light button and they would come back on, now hazard lights won't work either. Have almost had 4 accidents because blinkers failed to work, have almost been cited by the local police until I proved it was a mechanical failure. Can't afford the cost of repair, because I had to pay out of my pocket for catalytic converter replacement when it failed, though it was a manufacturer defect, because GMC and dealer wouldn't make it good, and the engine shut down completely.
