Turn signals and hazard lights work when they want to, which began last year 07/07. I replaced fuses to see if this was the problem. It continues to happen. After almost being rear-ended with my infant son in a carseat the back seat as my turn signals flashed twice and failed I found out later there had been a recall on the hazard/turn switch on the 2000 models of Malibu and not the 99's.

My family's 2002 chevy Malibu's turn signal flashers are intermitently failing. The problem began yesterday, 7 June 2006, and reoccured today, the 8th of June, 2006. I notice that NHTSA had a recall pending on this exact issue, but it appears to have been closed. Why, and what is NHTSA doing about the problem in lieu thereof?.
1999 Malibu v6 with 70,000 miles. Turn signals have become erratic. I replaced the fuse, and it worked, but again at times, they don't work, and at times, they do. No real pattern. Sometimes, they work in the morning, sometimes in the afternoon, some times, when the engine is cold, and sometimes warmed up.
2002 chevy Malibu turn signal failures as well as hazard light failure.
The turn signals quit without warning, this has been going on for about two months . The consumer attempted to use the turn signals and was almost struck from behind when she realized the turn signals were not working. The vehicle was has not been to a dealer yet. The turn signals come and go off, sometimes they work and sometimes they do not work. The vehicle has been to an independent service shop, who could not find anything wrong. No explanation given as to what the problem was. This still remained a problem. No repairs or corrections have been made. Updated 12/27/2005 - the four way flasher unit was replaced on 10/10/2005.
Turn signals on my 2001 chevy Malibu stopped working. The bulbs aren't burned out so must be an electrical problem (I'm guessing) at first the signals would work for a few days then stop for a day but now its been 4 days and the signals don't work at all. Also the air conditioning system doesn't "blow" on levels 1-4 only on level 5.

My vehicle is a 2002 Malibu 1. Exterior turn signal lights do not light up even thought the dash signal is indicating that they are blinking and dashboard turn signal lights do not light up at all 2. Had no idea if I was signaling to other motorists my intention to turn - still do not know if signals are working 3. Took the vehicle to Chevrolet service - they worked on it for hours charging me by the hour and could not identify the problem.
Turning signal don't work and hazard lights don't work. Can't rely on them in traffic. I had them on and was on the freeway and they went out as I was trying to change lanes. I am told the hazard switch is bad and will cost 100$ to fix. I notice on your web site that most of the complaints on this make, model, and year are the turning signals and hazard lights. I would like to know why there is no recall on something that is needed for safe driving. And if you can please push a recall for the safety of us drivers. Thank you.
Turn signal and flasher would intermittently turn on, making it difficult for vehicles in the rear to see when driver needed to turn. Consumer will take vehicle to dealer for check up.
Turn signals won't work intermittently.
Turn signals failed to come on when applied. Consumer heard a sound while turning on the turn signals. Consumer took vehicle to the dealer for inspection, and mechanic determined that the signal light flasher unit needed to be replaced. The consumer stated that the turn signals would work sometimes and not other times. Gm issued a recall for exact same problem but only covered Feb 2000 through may 2001. The consumers vehicle is a 1999 not covered in the recall. (recall # 03v327000). Tc.
While turning turn signal flasher light failed. Dealership was notified, but did not resolve the problem.
I own a 2000 Chevrolet Malibu and I am having the same problems with my turn signals as many others are as well. Gm had a recall on the 2000 Malibu but told me that my vehicle was not required to recieve a recall based on the VIN number but they would fix it for a fee. I think gm should fix mine since they already addressed the problem and it sounds sounds the same as the recall. I think this is a very serious problem that is very dangerous.
The turn signals / hazard flashers on my 2000 Chevrolet Malibu do not work properly. This is an important problem that could result in an accident. I reached my dealer who was helpful however they said they could not rectify this problem as the vehicle has not been recalled. I also saw an article in the 12/03 edition of consumer reports citing this issue. Please advise what is being done to correct this matter.

When you go to turn on the turn signals they do not work. They will work one minute and not the next. At times you have to turn on the four way flashers to get the signal to work and at times this does not alway help. I have had several near rear end misses because of this. It's a safety hazard!.
The turn signals fail on vehicle. You will go to change lanes , they will be working then they stop working. I contacted miller Chevrolet who said they were unaware of any problems. I then contacted phalen Chevrolet who stated there have been multiple hazard switch failures causing this problem but no one knew why. This is a very dangerous condition for a lot of cars on the street to have , and may be a item that should be repaired under recall before there are some deaths. Mr.
This will be the 4th time to take vehicle in for turn signal problems. I have to use my hazards to get my turn signal to work. Now neither one of them work. The first time I took it in they told me there was no way my hazards would make my turn signal work. This car is a piece of expensive junk. Not to mention the brakes have been replaced also.
Turn signals continue to fail and so does the emergency flashers on a daily basis. They just don't come on at all or some times they come on and then flash once and then they stop very dangerous. Dt.
