Hi marcutio! You need to drop a dime to your local Chevy parts desk guy and he'll get you where you need to be. He'll be happy to help you out as you are buying the new relay. He may also be able to warn you of other possible reasons for your problems. Good luck.

They use the same relay. The relay is located above a plastic cover the same color as the dash that has one screw holding it. Turn on your Emer. flashers and you will hear it clicking. That is the relay but if the emer. flashers are working and not the turn signals, the problem is not the relay. More than likely it is the turn signal switch ( multi function switch) 3 screws under the steering column cover and 2 screws on the switch and 2 plug-in's and put it back together and your done... No need to remove the steering wheel... YAY!

This might not always be the case. I just changed the relay out of my Chevy Cavalier and the emergency lights were working just fine. Once the new relay was in both the left and right signal along with the emergency light worked just fine. I have had to replace the turn signal switch before and what has usually happened is that the left signal goes out before the right or is the only blinker that is causing the problem. When its the relay, both left and right signals are problematic to the same degree. go with the cheapest fix first. A new relay should NOT cost you more than twenty dollars.

I tried the relay first, but still had the same problem. The flasher was my cause. There is a panel under the dash. It takes one 7mm bolt and you can remove the panel. Look with a flash light to find it. The color of mine was neon green. if you can't find it turn on your hazzard lights. The blinking sound you will be able to trace it. Relay cost $20 flasher cost $20 turn signal switch $60 go with cheap fix first

I just replaced the electronic flasher module in a 98 Cavalier. It was not easy to access. It was a neon green module located above the brake pedal. Thanks for all the clues above. I accessed it by removing the panel, same color as the dash, with a 7mm wrench. My 4-ways were working, but the right and left turn signal would work for just a few short flashes then stop. Replacing this module worked. $15.99 plus tax.

i have a problem with the fact that all of my lights are working but are not flashing, i found the green module and removed it and took it apart and cleaned the contact and it looked new anyways.. i never heard any such clicking(which probably be the relay clicking) in the first place to find it, but i am still having the same problem. i had the whole turn signal assembly replaced years back because none of my lights worked at all and that fixed it. but now i just want my lights to flash! can anyone help?

The cover. that was my question too. if it's anything like mine, you have to pull the front pad for the horn off" I had to use a flathead screwdriver to pry the horn wire off" and take the steering wheel off. it has six small screws. after you get the steering wheel off you'll see two screws holding the case on in the front.

Is this the same thing when your signal lights are not working either? Also not even the emergency lights, the windshield just stopped too? Grrrr!

Taking your cover off your steering wheel in a 2002 is easy. I didn't have to take my horn pad off or anything. The steering wheel tilter knob should twist off, it did in mine at least. Then you just unscrew the bottom screws and you have to pull hard but just pull the two covers apart and take off. Just make sure you put your horn back in place. And remember you should disconnect your battery.
