Not really. The flashing and the flash rate can be controlled through the BCM. The click, click click sound comes through the left front speaker instead of a flasher module. So its quite possible that the car doesnt have a traditional flasher module.

Edit: Just looked up the parkinglight/turn signal schematics in the service manual. No flasher module. Signal goes from the multifunction switch to the BCM and out to the lights.

balls. So would LED's not really be an option without load resistors? I hate using them. =(

I think I read that people on the Malibu forums used LED bulbs with no resistors and they worked. I have some spare wedge LED bulbs. Maybe I'll give it a try. I already have LED bulbs for the front fender markers with no strange effects.

Well, forget that assumption. Popped in a couple of LED bulbs and it flashed like a Jack Russell terrier on crack.

Default Re: Flasher relay

Need someone with an FSM to get component locations and see if it's BCM, solid state, or hidden somewhere. I checked all 3 boxes, and didn't find one, but it could be one of those silent tie-in's that GM loves to use.

If it's BCM, maybe a TEC2 or HPTuners could get in and change the load settings so it doesn't think a bulb is out?

I have the FSM's. What component do you need the location for? The BCM? Its on the passenger side kick panel. The interior fuse box and BCM are the same part. If the BCM controls flasher timing, then its software driven. Doesnt mean it can be altered though.

Is there anything in the FSM about the flasher functions and/or service?

Usually a component locator lists every relay and module in the car.

I know the Camry's have a solid state inside the dash, not near any fuses.
