My 1998 V70-xc just started acting up. the turn signals flash real fast ( not like you have a bulb out) then stays on steady. Pressing the 4-way flasher switch causes them to flash a few times then stops. I can hear the relay behind the 4-way switch chattering. All turn signals light but i get the chatter then stop. Any body else have this experience?

Default flasher failure

Does anybody know how to access the flasher units on this car? Where are they?

I had an issue where my turn signals would not work at all. I replaced the fuses and they worked fine. So I would replace the fuses. Not sure if it will fix it... but it is somewhere to start.

Question Turn Signals

The turn signal's work, its's something with the flasher unit. If I manually flip the turn signal lever the lights come on but dont flash, some times they do for a couple of flashes then chatter quickly then go steady. I read on another thread that the flasher unit is the problem but how do you access?

Thanks for your input. Gary

Smile Flasher problem solved

I was able to track down the problem to the flasher unit. I went to the local bone yard and found a flasher unit, paid Mr. Happy at the checkout shed my $4.00 and went and installed it. Everything works....
