I have a 06 Lincoln Zephyr and the left front turn signal stays on constantly at it runs my battery down and my right front turn signal when you turn it on comes on for 1 blinks 1 time and don't blink no...


Without test we would only be gussing . Could be the SJB - smart junction box , electronic module problem ,wiring problem ,switch etc... Looking at wiring diagrams an testing the circuit's with a DMM - digital multi-meter , would be the way a professional technician would diagnose this . Hooking up a factory or professional type scan tool an checking for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble code's also .
The smart junction box (SJB) monitors the multifunction switch position by sending multiple voltage reference signals to the multifunction switch. When the multifunction switch is in the LH or RH TURN positions, or the hazard lamp switch is engaged, that input signal is routed to ground.
When the SJB receives a request for a turn signal or hazard lamps, the SJB supplies voltage to the appropriate turn lamps.

Smart Junction Box (SJB) Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) Index DTC Description Source Action B1342 ECU is Faulted SJB CLEAR the DTCs. RETRIEVE the DTCs. If DTC B1342 is retrieved again, INSTALL a new SJB. REFER to Section 419-10 . B1799 Lamp Turn Signal Front Output Circuit Open SJB Go To Pinpoint Test N . B1801 Lamp Turn Signal Front Output Circuit Short to Ground SJB Go To Pinpoint Test N . B1875 Turn Signal/Hazard Switch Signal Circuit Failure SJB Go To Pinpoint Test P . B2044 Left Rear Stop Lamp Circuit Short to Ground SJB For Milan or Zephyr, Go To Pinpoint Test N .
For Fusion, REFER to Stoplamps in this section to continue diagnosis of the turn lamp. B2045 Left Rear Stop Lamp Circuit Open SJB For Milan or Zephyr, Go To Pinpoint Test N .
For Fusion, REFER to Stoplamps in this section to continue diagnosis of the turn lamp. B2046 Right Rear Stop Lamp Circuit Short to Ground SJB For Milan or Zephyr, Go To Pinpoint Test N .
For Fusion, REFER to Stoplamps in this section to continue diagnosis of the turn lamp. B2047 Right Rear Stop Lamp Circuit Open SJB For Milan or Zephyr, Go To Pinpoint Test N .
For Fusion, REFER to Stoplamps in this section to continue diagnosis of the turn lamp. B2281 Right Turn Switch Short to Ground SJB Go To Pinpoint Test M . B2282 Left Turn Switch Short to Ground SJB Go To Pinpoint Test M .
Your best bet mite be to take it to a qualifed repair shop.

Both Lower Brake Lights Not Working


Check Brake Light Bulbs: All cars have three brake light bulbs that create the brake light illumination affect. If the lower two bulbs fail no lower brake light operation will occur. I know what you're thinking, you might say two brake lights at once? But in reality one brake light went out at a time and you did not notice. People only tend to notice something when they almost run into the back of your car to help persuade them to inform you the brake lights aren't working. Remove either of the brake light bulbs to confirm the bulb is ok or burned. After the bulb has been removed inspect the filament and replace if failed. If the brake light bulbs are ok continue to the next step.

Checking the Turn Signal Switch: Most American cars are designed to have the brake light switch wiring intergraded into the turn signal switch. Because the brake light bulb and the turn signal bulb are one and the same the turn signal switch interrupts the brake light circuit and installs the blinker signal circuit when the turn signal switch is activated. If this switch fails it will not allow the brake light signal through to the brake light wiring. To test for this condition a car repair manual is needed to test incoming and outgoing electrical current. If brake light switch power is present at the turn signal switch but not at any outgoing brake light wires the turn signal switch has probably failed.

Signal lights and front flashers not working on 89 ford E350


I would guess the turn signal switch is the problem.

Alpha Romeo 156 My Left hand indicator light stays on continually, does not flash. and when I turn the hazard light switch on both indicators continually glow.


Generally speaking, symptoms of a bad or failing turn signal bulb are usually the culprit...in your case, either it's the front left or rear bulb. Varies for different vehicle makes...common signs include:
  1. turn signal light staying on solid
  2. or blinking very fast
  3. or either sides of the bulbs stop blinking altogether.
To test this, make sure you reconnect everything you disconnected.
Turn the left signal light on; go to the front of the vehicle, is the turn signal bulb illuminated? If it lights up, even though it is not blinking obviously the bulb is okay. If it doesn't, replace it- problem solved. You'll do the same procedure for the rear turn signal Is that lit up? If not replace the bulb and the problem is solved.
Another common failure is when the turn signal blinks really fast, same procedure as mentioned above.
If both bulbs for the left side and right side illuminate but don't blink, the problem is in the steering column turn signal switch.
If the left or right side blinkers don't work properly at all...then check the integrated hazard warning/turn signal flasher relay- that may be defective; again, that's usually the case if both sides of the signal light don't work.
If you are blowing any fuses related to the flasher system, you have an electrical overload in the turn signal circuitry.

Turn signals not working


all else on car works perfectly (other shoe drops??????)
waring 1: no scan tool, you will fail (99%)
is battery fully charged to 12.6vdc rested or at 10v?
all 4 corners dead?
not working means dead?, flashes too fast/slow or dim? or they stick on? (5 modes to fail not counting L/R and haz)
do the hazards work? (prime evidence and not stated)
most cars before 2007 have fuse marked TURN.
but not this car... its not at all like older cars....
did you scan it first after the fuse tests? any PCM scan tool.?

the FSM chapter 8L shows the huge list of errors the lamps can fail. DTC errors.
in fact 8 blinker codes, ! DTC errors,

there is no fuse, just for turns, (trailer lamps fuse 19)

read this excerpt from the FSM book.

The turn signal system operates on battery current received on a fused ignition switch output (run) circuit so that the
turn signals will only operate with the ignition switch in the On position. The hazard warning system operates on
non-switched battery current received on a fused B(+) circuit so that the hazard warning remains operational regardless
of the ignition switch position. When the turn signal system is activated, the circuitry of the left multi-function
switch and the FCM will cause the selected (right or left) turn signal indicator, front park/turn signal lamp, front side
marker lamp and rear tail/stop/turn signal lamp to flash on and off. When the hazard warning system is activated,
the circuitry of the hazard warning switch and the FCM will cause both the right side and the left side turn signal
indicators, front park/turn signal lamps, front side marker lamps and rear tail/stop/turn signal lamps to flash on and
off. The Front Control Module (FCM) can also activate the hazard warning system lamps.
end quote)

the module front control MFC, runs this
and it uses fuse 18 , if 18 blows the module goes off line and vast things fail and huge numbers OF DTCs store.
and fuse 27 MFC
MFC needs these fuses good.
keep in mind nobody has MFC internal schematics...so........



this module drives left and right side front and rear.
electronic drivers, not fuses.
the MFC is here.
the fuses are 12,13,18, 20,27 that power MFC.

Right turn signal will not continue to tick.


Check your bulbs. Almost always your description means a bulb is burned out. Check for good grounds.

None of the blinkers work on my 1996 dodge stratus, all bulbs are good as the park lights and flashers work. I have three dead ports in fusebox under hood.


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.

Rear turn signals not working front ones are working


I would suspect the turn signal switch is defective, that is the most common cause.
