Step 2 - Locate the power distribution center (PDC) or fuse panel to check all system fuses. - To locate the fuse consult the owner's manual or search.


Step 3 - When a turn signal flasher or relay fails the blinkers will not operate or come "ON", but not blink.

Checked all the fuses related to lights and everything is fine on that end. If I press the hazard button or signal right/left I can hear a relay clicking somewhere, so I would assume that would be ok? Though I can t think of anything else that would be the culprit of it.
