my hazard lights don't work.... the turn signals work, the fuse looks fine and all of the bulbs are still good.

Re: hazard lights

What year? On earlier (pre-91) models, there are two flashers, one for the signals and one for the hazard. On later ones, there's a combination flasher. If yours is earlier type, I'd first suspect the flasher or the fuse for the hazard lights, which is also separate (I think).

Re: hazard lights

it's an '89... is this problem related to the green arrow lights staying on in my gauge cluster? the lights aren't blinking, but they just stay lit when i turn on my headlights.

Re: hazard lights

Swap the two flasher relays around and see if it fixes the problem. BTW my 1993 uses two also. I could feel the relay click with the blinkers on.

Re: hazard lights

The green arrows staying on indicate a poor ground for the parking light/turn signal lamps. The parking lights don't have a decent ground path, so they make their own by back-feeding through the turn signal circuit.

Re: hazard lights

Check and see if your brake lights are also not working. Brake light fuse powers both. Had that problem with my '87, and although the fuses looked good, one had a blade that was corroded a bit and didn't make proper contact.
