i know this happens with other cars and has happened in the past with my parents cars, but what causes it? my turning signals do flash, but will freeze sometimes. my dad said usually a bulb is out, but i looked and all are working... so what's the problem?

Sounds like a failing flasher relay to me. I've had it happen to me on other cars as well. Very annoying...

Ditto. I had mine go at around 120k. I just bought the part from Clair Parts and replaced it myself. Symptoms sound identical to what I had. I think the part cost me like $50-$60 It was a while ago, so I don't remember excatly, but it was really easy to do.

I have this problem intermittently, but I haven't had it in quite some time. If they don't blink you can just toggle them on and off with the stalk. [up]

Changed the signal relay or something under warranty and that solved it.
