I have an olds alero. The blinkers work then don't etc How can I fix this prob?

(2004 Oldsmobile Alero)
I have a 2004 Olds Alero. The blinkers work occasionally. The problem started months ago and the problem has gotten worse the past two months. I wiggled wires in the trunk thinking I had a loose connection but it makes no difference. I never know when they will work and I can't afford to go to an auto repair shop. I do have a friend who will fix the problem if he knows how. Please let us know how he can fix it.
Thank you very much!!!
What seems to make the problem better or worse? I never know when the blinkers are going to work
How long have you had this problem? A few months. It's been worse past 2 months

The signal light flasher is incorporated into the hazard switch on the dash - next time you’re having a problem push the hazard switch on / off quickly a few times - if that restores signal light function - REPLACE THE HAZARD SWITCH..

It’s a common failure.

GM has had this problem on all of their N body vehicles of that vintage - which includes Alero.

Good luck!
