Turn signals
 
My turn signals either don't work or when they do work they are very very slow. So I figure the flasher is going bad? Where is it? Or is there something else I should look at?

If they are dim then I would say you have a bad ground someplace.

It is located on the drivers side, at the left side of instrument panel located on fuse block. It simply unplugs. Purchase a new one to see what it looks like. They are usually round about the size of a silver dollar with 3 plugs. Can be plastic or metal.

they are also really cheap so it's a simple check. ten bucks and you'll know if it's just the flasher or if there's more to it, but it does sound like the flasher to me

I noticed mt drivers door is leaking a little bit and the fuse box is a little wet. I should be able to fix it pretty easily.

It ended up being the flasher. I pulled the old one, took it to the electronics shop at work, took it apart, cleaned it and stuck it back in. I guess 15 years of electronic back ground has paid off.
