the flasher relay could be bad... or a bulb could be burnt out....

When it turns on and stays on, check front and rear.. if all bulbs are lit I'd suspect the relay. If one is out then replace it and see if that helps.

Combination Flasher is located inside dash, below the instrument cluster, above the driver's feet, to the left of the steering column. For me, it was necessary to remove some of the plastic covers to access the relay. No more than 1 hour to remove and replace. Philips head screwdriver was all I needed.

1) FSM says to disconnect the negative cable. (Up to you. I didn't.)

2) Remove the fuse cover.

3) Lower steering wheel.

4) Gently pry the cluster bezel (below instrument cluster) by each of the four corners. It is held in place by four snap clips. Pull toward you, 'rolling' it over the top of the steering column. Don't scratch the instrument cluster!

5) Remove the one outer and two (?) inner screws that hold the steering column opening cover (below steering column). Pull rearward to disengage the three snap clips.

Yours may differ slightly, but this is the gist of it. The combination flasher is the black relay in the upper middle position of the junction block.

In your first post you're saying the light is staying on but not flashing. Then in the other you say you're blowing fuses.

Which fuse are you blowing? If it was for the light then you shouldn't have any light at all.
