I really don't think you would have a fuse problem . You should hope not anyway , fuse's don't go bad or blow for no reason . A blown fuse would be caused by a direct short to ground on a battery power supply circuit , high current draw . I would look at the flasher or switch as probable cause . Viewing a wiring diagram an testing the electrical circuits is the best way to find the problem . Turn Lamps
With the ignition switch in the RUN position, battery positive voltage (B+) is supplied from the IP fuse block T/SIG/BU LP/BTSI fuse 1B via CKT 539 (PNK) through the turn signal flasher to the normally closed switch in the turn/hazard switch via CKT 16 (PPL). With the turn switch in the left turn position, battery positive voltage (B+) is applied through the turn switch and two paths to the turn lamps. One path is to the left front park/turn lamps and the side marker lamps via CKT 14 (LT BLU). The second path is supplied to the left tail/stop/turn lamps via CKT 18 (YEL). The lamps go on immediately. The lights begin to flash when the current heats up the timing element in the flasher, and the flasher repeatedly opens and closes the circuit. A similar procedure is followed when the turn switch is in the right turn position. Battery positive voltage (B+) is supplied to the right front park/turn lamps and the side marker lamps via CKT 15 (DK BLU). Battery positive voltage (B+) is supplied to the right tail/stop/turn lamps via CKT 19 (DK GRN).

if you are not a professional with the necessary equipment and training, your best bet is to not mess with it, because it could kill you. The term "airbag" Is a misnomer; because it is not an airbag, it is an explosive device and if you do the wrong thing, it could blow up in your face. Sodium azide is the chemical found in automobile airbags. An electrical charge triggered by automobile impact causes sodium azide to explode and convert to nitrogen gas inside the airbag. Actually, there has been an occurrence where an airbag exploded while being installed before the wires were connected. It was set off by the static charge from friction between the mechanics pants on the seat upholstery

You may have issues inside the transmission but the first thing I would do in a situation like that is buy a filter and gasket kit and 5 -6 quarts transmission fluid and try changing the filter and 5 quarts fluid. Trans. actually hold 12-13 quarts but you'll only be draining out 5-6. If that doesn't cure it you may have a worn out clutch pack and/or accumulator. I hope that helps you going again.

Could be a bad cable. If it is broken into, you'll get swings like this. If you are handy, you can replace it yourself. If not, most garages can do it for you.

Obviously can be one of a very large number of problems. If there are no trouble codes (DTCs), still could be a possible fuel delivery system (fuel pump, filter, regulator, throttle body) or ignition problem. I would start by checking the fuel pressure carefully - too high or low will cause this. Also the coil pack can fail without a trouble code - check for spark at a plug.

Check the headlight switch, since it controls both of those functions as well as the headlights.
It's possible that the switch is worn out.

Knocking at acceleration? Or Idle? Knocking could be a rod, piston slap, or tappets (rocker arms). If its a rata tat-tat its upper engine or tappets. A heavy thump is usually from the crank.

Very common problem on GM vehicles. The security system fails and won't recognize the key anymore. You can bypass these systems now and eliminate them entirely.

Seems like the noise is related to torque reaction from the engine/power unit that can move quite a lot under acceleration/deceleration especially if an engine mount is soft or broken.

Perhaps the exhaust or similar is badly positioned and is too close to the bodywork.

Searching for a noise that can't be duplicated on a workshop hoist needs imagination and some carefully placed brute force...

Sounds like a head gasket leak. Have a cooling system pressure test and cylinder leakdown test performed. In the meantime, you should NOT drive this vehicle or you'll cause more damage.

That is the right way, spray the bolt with some wd40 or liquid wrench.

Do you own a scan tool ? One that shows engine sensor data parameters ? Checking sensor data would be the thing to do .
047 Engine Hard to Start or No Start Scan Data for Ignition
Check spec. to factory spec.
048 Engine Hard to Start or No Start Scan Data for Starting Problems .
