Guessed it's a V6. Trying to sort this out. If setting the headlamp switch to PARK turns on the park filaments of the front park/turn signal lamp and the tail filaments of the rear tail/stop lamps and the separate tail lamps, the park light circuit is good. If 20A fuse 6 in the power distribution center is OK, the combination flasher in the multifunction switch is receiving power. Power is directed to the turn signal lamps by operation of the turn signal/hazard warning switch. If the turn signals are not flashing, the combination switch may have failed or the turn signal flasher part of the combination flasher may have failed. Finally, the hazard warning switch causes the turn signal elements of the front combination park/turn signal lamps and the rear turn lamps to flash.
Aren't your brake lights and turn signal lights on the same bulb, same filament? Recheck the bulb in the rear, as the rapid blinking is an indication of a burnt out bulb. If the bulb is the correct one and is good, check the connector and socket at the housing for a loose or poor connection.
To replace your turn signal - There are 3 screws on the front of the light assembly. Remove them and slide the light assembly out and you will see the turn signal socket is in the middle of the outer half of the headlight assembly. Twist the socket counter clockwise to take it out of the assembly. Pull the turn signal bulb straight out from the socket. Insert new bulb and reverse procedure to finish.
check the bulbs and sockets they plug into then i would check any ground wires going to or coming from the turn signals i would also check the turn signal switch for any broken parts the hazard flasher is also the same flasher that runs the turn signals so there pretty cheap.

You will need a turn and brake signal box IF, you have different bulbs for brake and turn lamps. If the brake and turn bulbs are one(red)lens than no box will be required. Thanks, Dana
Sounds like you have a short in the turn signal switch ( in the steering column). Depending on the different functions of this switch will determine the cost. If you have one that simply works the turn signals, then your looking at about $15. I believe yours should cost around $75 since it's a multifunction type. Installation time is about 20 minutes
now when you say flashers work, I'm assuming you mean the 4 ways or Emergencys. As to the intermittent left signal working, I would first inspect both front and rear bulb sockets for corrosion and bulb condition. (Replace the Bulb, you can then rule it out). Clean and reinstall. If your problem persists, I would suspect your multi-switch contacts or connectors (Turn Signal Arm/Stick on the column)
A) Faulty turn signal switch or circuit. B) Broken dimmer switch or poor electrical connection.Could be relay also. C) Unplug the electrical connector at the motor and use fused jumper wires to connect the fan motor directly to the battery. If the fan still doesn't work replace the motor. If fan works could be your relay.
