1995 s10 flasher location?

I am trying to locate the flashers in my newly purchased truck. 1995 2.2liter 5-speed. i found the fuse block on the drivers side dash, and found the 2 relays(unmarked) in the glove box, but can anyone tell me where to find the flashers? i need to replace the turnsignal flasher as it flashes all 4 lights at about 5x normal speed.

Thank you. Found it just where you said they would be. Got the blinkers working correctly now.

Re: 1995 s10 flasher location?

I have a question related to this. My turn signals are blinking pretty slow at times. It will blink fine for a few clicks and then sometimes nearly stop and then go back to normal and it keeps doing that. I popped the dash piece out and replaced the flasher that I saw that was close to the cigarette lighter. My hazard lights blink fine. I only saw that one flasher down there, so that's what I replaced. Could it have been my hazard flasher? If so, then where the heck is the turn signal flasher in a 94. Or if it was the turn signal flasher, what could the problem be?

Doin' it the right way

Re: 1995 s10 flasher location?

On a 1994 the flasher unit is actually under the dash...on the firewall there is to the left of the brake pedal...and to the right of the ebrake pedal...up under the dash is a big black box with a bunch of plugs coming out of it. the flasher unit is a silver round thing that has only 2 prongs on the back of it...it just pulls out like a relay. hope this helps.

Yeah, I know. I already replaced the flasher. I didn't mean it was right beside the cigarette lighter, sorry. My problem is that even though I replaced that flasher (that was next to some weird looking black plugs), it's still blinking slowly sometimes. Is there any wiring I should check, any connections? I don't know where to go after replacing the flasher.

Doin' it the right way

i believe the flasher powers your turn signals and hazards. does it slow down when you come to a stop? if so, could be not getting enough power from the alternator to flash normally. (bad alternator, vacuum leak causing engine to bog down a lil and alternator then doesn't work efficiently)

First of all, I fixed it. I actually replaced the wrong flash. I finally came to my senses and just listened for the ticking to find where it was coming from. It turns out in the 94, the flasher is located under the driver's side dash just behind the emergency brake. I didn't even have to remove anything to get to it. Simple!

Second, it was an intermittent slowing of the blinker and hesitation. I already know it's slowed down a little, but that's for a different reason. I have a rebuilt 4.3 with a 266HR cam, and it's also supercharged. For the supercharger I had to change out the alternator pulley. The alternator was a HO alt with a smaller pulley, so changing out to the larger pulley lowered the idle output. Now all I have is this really loud "whining" noise. Everyone thinks it's the alternator. I have a different opinion

Doin' it the right way
