car   Turn Signal problem 5
Failure Date: 07/22/2005

Took Trailblazer into champion Chevrolet and they replaced turn signal module due to short circuit . Hazard flashers come on when driver moves turn signal lever up or down. Spoke to Chevrolet regarding possible recall and was told my vehicle was not part of the recall because the recall involves VIN#'s with the last four digits ending in 362 and mine ends in 361. I believe there may be other customers with this same issue and this causes a safety problem.
