Re: 1987 nissan pickup
Have you checked the bulbs and contacts ? To check the contacts, remove the bulb and check if it is not burnt out. Then get a voltage check tool. It is a tool that has an aligator tip on one end which you connect to ground. Then touch the pointed tip to the contact inside the bulb holder.A small light will glow in the tool itself if there is power.If it does not and it is not the bulbs then you have an open circuit somewhere. Cut wires, or even the switch itself may be at fault. contacts tend to flatten out and will not make good contact with the bulb.

The turn signal will likely not have it's own fuse. It will part of a ''section'' of electronic items (example: ''Dashboard lights''). So, if turn signals are the _only_ thing not working, it is likely not a fuse. All it takes is a little dirt in just _one_ socket and the whole system could go out. (On some cars it would be just that entire _side_ front and back. On others, all 4 could go out).
your problem may only be bad bulbs,as the turn signals are a double element bulb. which means one light may 'work' and the other 'not' suggest that you replace the 'non' working bulbs and then check them to insure you erceived the right solution. thank you for choosing fixya,com!
are you referring to the 4 way flashers or the fuse if its the 4 way it should be on the dash or wheel itself .......if the fuse inside the glove box or along side the fuse panel or under the hood in a black box
Depending on the car but most cars ive worked on have a fuse in the fuse panel for turn signals and all cars have a turn signal flasher either in the fuse panel or usually near it of course they will be round shaped. And yes there is a turn signal switch usually in the steering column not a fun job usually. If your headlights or dimmer or anything else is on the same switch then it will prob. be call a multifunctional switch at a parts store. You can go to www.autozone.com and click on repair guides and it is basically an online vehichle manual and it should tell you where your fuse or flasher would be.
you might need a Turn Signal Column Switch, I have a 1993 Nissan Pickup and my fuse blew all the time. I dexed that problem i have some wires in the back of the truck that was rubbing on the frame. Now my running lights are not working and when i turn on my head light one will come on so i will have to turn on and off about 10 times then both of them will come on, so my turn signal switch is bad.
