Turn signals not functioning properly

Please check the bulbs. These issues can happen if your bulb is burned out. Crazy if you have a bad bulb on both sides but still need to rule them out.

Need to replace left turn signal flasher

This is weird! It seems to me that the left turn signal is getting 12v from somewhere at all times.I don't think the flasher is the problem(most GM systems use a single flasher for left and right)You probably have a crossed wire somewhere(or an add on accessory was connected to the left signal wire,allowing 12 volts to bleed through to the circuit)

Exactly what i said when you turn on the left signal light it actually triggers the injectors they give a shot of gas every time the signal stat clicks and the ignition coil gives 1 spark at the same time...

Man never heard of that before..But they are defineitly grounded by two different modules..You got to have some melted wires somewhere..Or ive seen a ground wire broke that cause some crazy stuff..I had a taurus with a bad ground at the radio circuit,, that cause the vehicle to shut off..Took forever to track down..I also had a vehicle that had a short in the fuse panel,,that would kill the car when turn on the flashers..Come to find out the KAM was tie in the same circuit

My left turning light gets stuck just stays on even though you turn left and go back but my right turning light works fine

The turn signals are designed to tell you when a bulb burns out. Turn your signal light on and walk around the vehicle to check if the outside signal lights are working. Sounds like you have both front and rear bulbs burnt out for the left.

it sounds like you need a new directional signal switch located behind the steering wheel and the
air bag not a 10min job but not a wallet buster
