The left blinker comes on, but does not blink? Either the front or rear bulb on that side is burned out (turn signal filament only). U can swap bulbs from good side to determine which is the bad bulb, or by carefully checking the bulb filament for damage. Let me know if u need more info.

start your car keep in park with the emergency brake on, turn on your blinkers to right or left side, then check to see if both front and back lights and side marker lights come on if they do check the other side, you will probably fined that you have a bad bulb or two. hope this helps you.

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,

When you first start the car, the turn signals will work for 2 to 3 seconds and then completely stop blinking. The emergency flasher does work a bit longer;but then stops..


I had a similar problem on a 2001 Cherokee I once owned. The left side blinker would stop working after a few seconds, but the right side worked perfectly. I replaced the flasher and that solved the problem. I don't know why they did that since they share the same flasher. There is also a flasher on the emergency lights as well. It's a cheap and simple fix if that is the problem. Give it a shot.

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
