Left turn signal turns on emergency blinkers

Hi, when i turn the left turn signal on, the emergency lights come. that is all 4 lights start blinking. i think the problem is in the sterring columb area because the emergency light switch is very close to the turn signal lever. the right turn signal works fine. how do you get the cover off the stering columb. i can't see any screws from under neath. thanks jon

These functions are all controlled by the turn signal switch, also known as the multifunction switch, this is a common issue you have and will require you replace the switch.

I just got done with the same issue. Replace the Multifunction switch 2 times. Turns out that the turn signal flasher relay was bad.

You may have a bulb burnt out if the relay didn't help.
Check all bulbs.

If that doesn't fix the problem, you may have a broken blinker cam inside the steering wheel. (where the blinker lever connects inside)

I would check in this order.

flasher relay
signal cam

Exclamation point in triangle blinking on dashboard


Hi, The exclamation point in triangle blinking is the "Emergency Blinker" This blinker turns on all all of the turn signal lamps at all four corners of the car. Left and Right, Front and Back. The triangle represents the European symbol for roadside emergencies. In fact on European Mercedes and other cars there is a triangle shaped reflector you can put behind the car so that other drivers know you have an emergency. THAT TRIANGLE ON YOUR DASHBOARD IS A BUTTON. PUSH IT ONCE. THE BLINKING SHOULD STOP. If you have a roadside emergency, and are broken down by the side of the rode. Push the Red Triangle and your lights will blink on and off ouTside to say, in effect "help".
Hope this helps.
Best,
Mark

How do I fix my left blinker? light still works but it sticks instead of blinks


What you speak of as to the left blinker doesn't flash, yet the instrument cluster shows the green arrow (to the left), and yet that and the left turn signal lights do not flash, appears to be a simple burned out bulb. If one of your left turn signal bulbs are burnt out, then the #552 Flasher Unit in your fuse box is NOT the cause. It's the "Amperage" not being correct to the flasher unit. Place the parking brake on and start your vehicle. Put the left turn signal on and check to see ALL the bulbs are illuminated for the left turn signal. If you find one bulb that is not illuminated, then replace the bulb. It should be an 1157 bulb, but in the front it could be a 1157 Amber bulb dependent on whether your turn signal lens is clear or yellow.

If you still have difficulty finding the dead bulb, turn on the right turn signal and see which bulbs are illuminated and this will give you an idea as to which bulb on the left side isn't working, or turn on your Emergency Flashers which will turn on both the left and right side lamps and see which bulb is not lit up.

I hope this Helps,

I have a 2006 dodge caravan and the rear turn signals will not work. fronts work fine, headlights and fog lights work fine. I checked all fuses and bulbs and none are burnt out. the turn lights on the dash...


Hello Durant.
Your rear signal lamps are turned on by the body control module (BCM).
You could have some broken wires from the BCM to the rear signals or the BCM isn't providing power to them. The BCM must be getting a signal input because the front ones are functional.
If you want to trace the wires here are the colors you are looking for.
Left rear wire is white/dark green.
Right rear wire is white/brown.
You may need to have your BCM scanned to verify.
If you would like more information to solve this yourself ask me.

Why does my left brake light stop working when i use my left turn signal


If you turn ON your hazard (emergency) blinkers, does the left light blink like the right one?

Blinking sound that want stop


The simple solution could be the turn signal flasher (which are generally located under the dashboard). Very inexpensive. But you say that smoke was coming out of the turn signal arm. In that case it could be shorted out. To replace the turn signal arm assembly is pretty expensive. Maybe around $200.00 for parts and labor at a shop. Good Luck!

Left turn signal is blinking fast,where is the relay located at?


You did not say if the right signal blinks ok or not. Assuming it blinks like the left, the best way to find the blinker is to leave the engine off but the key switch on and turn your blinker on. Now LISTEN and you should hear the clicking. If the right side blinker is normal then you may have a bad turn signal bulb or ground to one of the signal bulbs. An easy way to check your turn signal bulbs is to turn on your emergency flashers and look at the bulbs, they all should blink at the same time and with the same brightness. Good Luck

Blinkers not working


Did you check the bulbs? If one bulb is burned out, the blinkers won't word on that side. You could have one bulb burned out on each side. Start the car, put left signal on. Check front and back lights. Is one light on but not blinking? If that's the case, the light that's not on at all is burned out and has broken the circuit so the good light stays on and won't blink. Check the other side. You also have a 'flasher' , actually 2. One for emergency flashers, one for the turn signals. It could be that the turn signal flasher is shot. You just have to unplug it to remove. It's probably located near the fuses. good luck countrycurt0
