turn signal problem

My wife is going on a trip in the morning with her 1999 Olds 88 so I'd like to solve this one quick. The car has a funny way to ring in the new year. The turn signals have stopped flashing. They just stay on when activating the lever. Both sides quit the same day, one soon after the other.

I know this is usually a sign that there is a burnt bulb. This isn't the case. Checked the fuses. All look ok.

So then my guess was the flasher was defective. But the hazard warning makes all lights flash without a problem.

I can't figure it out. Any ideas?

Probably the flasher. The hazards usually use a separate flasher. If all the lights light it almost has to be the flasher. They are usually located close to each other. If you put the hazards on it will make it easier to find the flashers.

Success!

I didn't know that hazards and signal lights had separate relays on this car.

I was lucky. I happened to have a new relay kicking around. Took some digging but I found it.

Car is fit for tomorrow. Wife is happy = I'm good for another day.

Thanks for your help Chet.

That's what I used to say. But I draw the line when she wants her boyfriend over the same time I'm home!
