1996 3500 sierra left signal causes all lights to flash


Well, you're dealing with a short. If the right turn signal only works the right side bulbs, you know you're issue must be in the switch. The only way left turn signal would light the right side, but the right signal would not light the left is if you added a diode, which I doubt is the case. So the switch itself is suspect. That or a wiring issue. If you just bought the truck, and this is an existing issue I'd suspect wiring. If it just started doing this I'd suspect the switch.


I would check to make sure someone didn't monkey with the wires and switch the left turn signal with the hazard lights or something (do your hazard lights happen to flash only the left turn signals?). If it has or had an aftermarket alarm you need to check their work and see what may be screwed up. Alarm systems often tap into the parking lights, which will look like all 4 turn signals, but are actually dimmer filaments. Flashing the parking lights would actually make your radio flash too, so I'm kind of leaning this way. Can't say for sure on limited information though.

Passenger side turn signal flashes faster but dont work even at day runing light, comes on when head lights are on, replace bulb and socket because was melted but stilldoes the same


Turn Signal Lamps
The turn signal lamps may only be activated with the ignition switch in RUN or BULB TEST position. The T/SIG fuse supplies ignition voltage to the turn signal switch. When the turn signal switch is placed in either the left or right position, the turn signal switch sends an ignition voltage to the hazard lamp/turn signal flasher, which sends an on-off signal to the turn signal switch. When the turn signal switch receives the on-off signal it will send that signal to the following lamps on the LH or RH side:
?€¢
The Rear Turn Lamp


?€¢
The Turn Signal Indicator


?€¢
The Sidemarker Lamp


?€¢
The Sideview Mirror (Pontiac Thunder only)

The turn signal switch also sends a separate on-off signal to the Daytime Running Lamps (DRL) control module, which relays the signal to the appropriate front turn signal. The front turn signals are grounded at G101 and G102. The rear turn signals are grounded at G401. The sidemarker lamps are grounded through the corresponding front parklamp.
The sideview mirror turn signals are a bank of LEDs placed behind the mirror glass.
The hazard lamps operate on battery voltage. The HAZARD fuse supplies battery voltage to the turn signal switch. When the hazard switch is pressed, the turn signal switch sends battery voltage to the hazard lamp/turn signal flasher, which sends an on-off signal to the turn signal switch. The turn signal switch send the on-off signal to all the turn signal lamps, causing all the lamps to flash including both IPC turn signal indicators. The hazard lamp/turn signal flasher is grounded at G200.
When the parklamps are ON, the sidemarker lamps receive voltage from the park lamp supply voltage circuit and illuminate. The sidemarker lamp is grounded through the corresponding rear turn signal. When the turn signal switch is place in the left or right hand position, the rear turn signal illuminates and the sidemarker lamp will loose its ground, causing the sidemarker lamp to turn off when the turn signals are on and to illuminate again when the turn signal is off.

I have an 02 kia sportage. my signal lights come on but dont blink outside. no lights for the signal lights come on on the dash at all. also, no hazard lights.


If the 15A HAZARD fuse in the passenger compartment fuse box is OK, power is getting to the hazard function of the flasher unit. Pressing the hzard switch should cause the hazard lights to flash. HOWEVER, there is an electronic time and warning indication system module connected to to the hazard switch lead and that may be affecting things. If the 10A TURN fuse is OK, power is applied to the turn switch (with the engine in START or RUN) and you state you can select a right or left turn. HOWEVER, the RED/WHT and RED/BLU outputs from the flasher unit connect directly to the front and rear turn lamps and the instrument cluster turn indicators so you are not getting any flasher output. Again, that electronic time & warning indication system module could be affecting things

1999 oldsmobile aurora side marker light flash on and off when the car is turned off


Power is appliedat all times through the 20A HZRD/ STOP LPS fuse in the right rear junction block. The ORG wire connects to the hazard flasher and the BRN output wire connects to the A5 terminal of the TURN/HAZARD switch assembly. When the HAZARD switch is engaged, power is applied to the front and rear turn signals and the left and right turn indicators in the instrument cluster, causing them to flash. Obviously an open fuse, a defective flasher, a defective HAZARD switch, or a defective TURN/HAZARD switch assembly will prevent the lamps from flashing. If the turn signals operate normally, they are not the problem.

Left front turn signal does not flash. Left rear OK. socket was corroded so I replaced socket. No flash. Checked wires for voltage, only the parking light connection ever gets anything. Front and rear...


Try pushing the Hazard switch on the Column several times and see if it restores the connection. From what I understand about the Multifunction Turn switch is that some of the contacts share connections with the Hazard Button.

The contacts work on a type of derailer setup and when the contacts get dirty or wear, things stop working. Moving the Hazard switch resets the points and springs each time you go in and out of the Hazard setting.

If your brake light is working you know the wires to the light socket from the brake switch are okay. Probably would not hurt to check brake light switch as it shares the common wire. The split between the left turn and right turn signal wire has to occur, yet the opposite brake light will stay on steady while the other side blinks.

I have a 2002 pontiac aztek. My rear right signal/brake lamp does not work. When i signal left, the front and rear left lights flash normally. When i signal right, the front right light flashes normally...


as for the faster flashing thats as simple as a blown bulb, replace the bulb and see if that fixes the problem, it may fix the lot because the other symptoms you mention are a bad connection, if bulb is fine check the connection isnt loose or corroded over. if it is simply file it back to establish better connectivity,
