Wacko Hazard lights

All the lights on my 82 grand prix work awesome but the hazards, they are dull and flash inconstant. once in awhile they will get a full bright flash. i started with replacing the bulbs and that seemed to help a bit. but they still do not work good. what would be next to check? is it most likley the hazard flasher in the fuse box?

with the tail light bulbs. they have the bulb # on them, does a larger # mean brighter bulb or is there a meaning to them?

thank you

Post your repair/problem on a Pontiac bulletin board, maybe somebody else with a Grand Prix had the same problem.

Digital volt meters are on sale at Harbor Freight for $3.99

Diagnose and find the problem then buy parts.

It's probably the flasher. Most GM cars of those years have 2, one for the hazards and one for the signals. The one on the fuse box is the signal one, the other is tucked up under the dash, usually on a clip, near the steering column.

The lightbulbs need to be the same number as you took out....most likely an 1157
