Exclamation 1992 Cutlass Cierra turn signal issues.

Hey guys, I'm new to the forum, and I have a question about this car.
The turn signals have been going kind of funky ever since it started to warm up.
Being that I live in Edmonton AB Canada, it's awesome that it JUST started to get past +5c. Anyways.
They first started to go slow, and now they are extremely intermittent. If I have the signal switched down (left) it takes almost 10 seconds for it to kick in.
I figure it is the blinker switch, not the lever. But I have no clue as to what it looks like to grab a replacement.
I've done a few googles on it but I haven't been able to figure it out.
Anyone have any ideas??

Thanks!
Nick.

Likely the relay that cause the flash is weak. It works by the current flowing causing it to heat up. When it was cold it worked...now as it's warmer it takes longer to reach the temp it needs. (I know...sounds odd).

Try switching the hazard flasher and the turn signal flasher...they should be the same thing. They look something like this and should be at the fuse block....


Oh...thats assuming the hazards work ok.

Yeah, the hazards work awesome.
Just the turn signals don't work worth a damn.
I'll give that a shot.
I've read in a few places that it is up and behind the ashtray, would that be a good general direction?
I'll poke my head under there around my break, see if I can't find the little bugger.
