Where does the flasher go? I have a 1990 Cadillac Eldorado. When I first bought it the blinkers didn't work to begin with. The hazards and stop lights work but no blinkers whatso ever. I bought the new part for it but I have no Idea where to put it. This is my first cadillac ever owning and working on so I'm not familiar with it. It's probably right in front of me and common sense but please so one tell me. Tiffany

  • Lie on your back under the left dashboard and look up along the left side of the steering column. Illuminate the area with the flashlight to assist in locating the old turn signal flasher, which mounts on a metal bracket, just above and to the left of the steering column.
  • 4Grab the old flasher by hand and pull it off the bracket. Depending on the model of your Cadillac, you may need to push aside some wiring harnesses to grasp the flasher.
  • 5Plug the new turn signal flasher onto the bracket. Reinstall the lower dash covers, if you removed any in Step 2.
  • 6Place the key in the ignition. Turn the key to the "Run" position.
  • 7Activate the turn signals on the left side of the car and get out and inspect them to make sure both front and rear bulbs are blinking, as designed. Switch the turn signal lever to activate the right signals and visual inspect
