My signal lights have been intermittent. I removed the kick panel and found that both my flasher's dust covers (plastic tops) have been crushed by the metal clips that hold them in place. When the dust covers are removed, the flashers work fine. The brand and part number that was labeled on the dust cover is unreadable, does any one know if any 12v flasher unit will work? Do they make them with a metal dust cover? Thanks in advance Jim

I truly believe that any flasher will work, but ask for a heavy duty one. If the flasher is not heavy duty enough the lights will flash too fast.

I had the same problem and resolve it by doing the following.

1. open up the metal clips which hold the flashers in place so they do not squeeze the flasher so tight.

2. replace the factory cover of the flasher with a prescription pill bottle.

easy free fix...
