Default 2004 L 300 series flasher relay location


My girlfriends L 300 has had intermittent blinker failure. the bulbs/fuses are fine. this is, in my experience, a flasher relay. In searching the internet I have discovered a couple of possibilities. The multi use switch needs replacing, or the relay located behind trim on the dash. Does anyone here know the following

1. Where is the flasher located?
2. do I need to purchase a Saturn relay, or will a stock unit form the auto parts store suffice?

As this is not my vehicle, I do not own a repair manual...

Thanks!

-Brian

Best I could come up with was post 3-5 from

http://www.saturnfans.com/forums/sho...t=L300+flasher

applies to an 02 L300 but I do not know if

1) it is the same for an 04 L300
2) if the 2.2 and 3.0 have it in the same place

I've scoured everywhere I know.

If the hazards work and the turn signals don't I'd likely replace the left turn signal multi function switch which can be purchased individually.

If the hazards don't work either (or stop working when the turn signals do, replace the hazard switch.

That is my best GUESS

Pretty sure the hazard switch is 2004 MY specific.

Are you having any other problems with lighting? Weird DRL stuff that doesn't work right, etc?

Default Figured it out

replaced the Hazard switch, which is located on the dash. Pull out the trim, unplug the switch, pull out the hazard switch, put in the new aftermarket Dorman - its not a perfect fit - I used a bit of duck tape to secure it. - Now it's working fine. $23.00 on Amazon.

Apparently the Hazard switch IS the flasher in these cars. I was telling a buddy about this and he said "is it a Toyota?" I said "No, its a Chevota".

Why have 2 flashers when you can hide one inside a switch?

Glad it's fixed
