How did we estimate these prices?

Jerry's experts researched and collected data from 2500+ real repair shops in all 50 states in the US, including everything from the total cost of repair services to the hourly labor cost for mechanic labor in each shop. We combined that data with our expert database of hundreds of real repair jobs, thousands of real cars, millions of real car part prices in order to best estimate the cost of each repair service. Our labor cost estimate is calculated by taking the average hourly labor rate for a certified mechanic in the US, times the number of hours it takes on average to complete a repair. We recommend you compare your local shops with Jerry and contact those shops directly to get final pricing for your vehicle.

How will a mechanic replace my hazard turn signal flasher?

Here are the general steps a mechanic will typically take to replace a hazard/turn signal flasher:
  1. Inspection: Your mechanic will inspect your hazard and turn signal bulbs, connectors, flasher relay, and other related parts to look for potential problems.
  2. Access the hazard/turn signal flasher: Your mechanic will need to access your turn signal flasher to replace it. It’s usually located somewhere near the vehicle’s fuse box, which can sometimes require removing interior paneling to access.
  3. Install the new flasher: If your mechanic determines the hazard/turn signal flasher relay to be faulty, they’ll remove the bad flasher relay and install a new one on its mounting bracket.
  4. Quality assurance check: After installing the new hazard/turn signal flasher relay, your mechanic will test your hazard and turn signal lights to make sure they’re functioning properly.

What happens if I don’t replace my hazard turn signal flasher?

Your hazard/turn signal flasher is an important electrical component that allows your car’s hazard lights and turn signals to function properly.
Without working turn signals or hazard lights, you’re at greater risk for accidents—and you could end up with traffic tickets if you’re pulled over by law enforcement.

What is a hazard/turn signal flasher?

A hazard/turn signal flasher is an electronic component that allows your hazard and turn signal lights to function. This helps alert other drivers and pedestrians when you’re about to make a turn and lets them know you’re there in case of an emergency.

When should I replace the hazard turn signal flasher on my car?

Here are some of the most common symptoms you might notice if it’s time to replace your hazard/turn signal flasher relay:
  1. Hazard or turn signal lights won’t work: One nonfunctioning light could be the result of a burned-out light bulb, but if your hazard or turn signal lights will no longer turn on at all then there could be a problem with the flasher relay.
  2. Hazard or turn signal lights work inconsistently: Hazard or turn signal flashers that don’t work consistently or turn on without being prompted could be connected to an electrical issue, such as a bad flasher relay.
  3. Headlights or taillights won’t work: If you also notice other bulbs on your headlights or brake lights on your vehicle are having issues, you could have issues with your battery, wiring, a blown fuse, or other electrical system components. In some cases, these lights can also be affected by the same flasher relay used by the hazard and turn signal lights.

How often should a hazard turn signal flasher be replaced?

You’ll only need to replace a hazard/turn signal flasher if it’s malfunctioning. In many cases, this part will last the life of your vehicle but it’s not uncommon for it to fail prematurely.

Can I replace my hazard turn signal flasher myself?

In theory, the steps to replace a hazard/turn signal flasher are relatively simple—but it can be more difficult to access on some vehicles than others. If you don’t feel comfortable replacing this part yourself, a certified mechanic can do so for you.

FAQs

In most cases, hazard and turn signal lights are usually controlled by the same flasher relay. A certified mechanic can confirm whether this is the case for your vehicle.
A hazard/turn signal flasher relay is an electrical component that allows your vehicle’s hazard warning lights to turn on and off when you need them.
On many vehicles, hazard lights and turn signals use the same bulbs—so your blinkers may not work with your hazards on. This is important to remember if you need to use your turn signal to merge back into traffic after pulling over.
It’s a good idea to test your hazard and turn signal flashes in your driveway so you’re prepared to use them in emergencies. Be sure to periodically check that they’re working properly, too.
