Turning signal not working properly

When I turn my left signal on, it's really fast (most of the time) and especially when I step on the brake at the same time. The right signal is fine. I've changed blubs, so where do I go from there?

It sounds like you need to replace the tail lamp assy. here why if you pull the connector and look in side both the assy & connector you see that one of the pens is melted.all GM should have a recall.every van with this body style have this problem sooner or later.

It sounds like the relay switch going bad i am not for sure where it is located if you have an owners manual it will, or a hayes manual it will tell you where it is located this is a DIY'er and would be where i would start you can get the relays from your local parts store and if it turns out that that is not what the problem is can be easily returned.

When I turn my left turn signal it flashes really fast until I press down on brake pad than it slows down and works cirrectly


This usually means that the front, or rear turn signal bulbs is bad...also some turn signal tail light bulbs are multi-purpose...same bulb lights for turn signal and brake light...You should be able to remedy this for the cost of a bulb...your owners manual and the parts counter rep can confirm the correct replacement bulb...Hope this helps.

95 dodge neon brake lights and rear turn signal will not work,


The fast blinking is usually a bulb burned out. Replace the rear bulbs. If this is not the problem , it may be a ground issue, but it really does sound like a bulb issue. Also inspect the light socket while you are there. Look for any bad corrosion Good luck

Driver side left turn signal flashing really fast. left brake light does not work. bulbs appear good. what should I do?


sometimes a bulb can be bad and appear good or there may be nothing wrong with the element but could be a problem in the contacts. if the turn signal is blinking fast and brake light out is an indicator that the bulb is bad if you do not want to replace the bulb without knowing for sure if it is bad take the one out of the other side and try it on the left and see if the problem changes to the right side. although bulbs are only about two dollars for a pack of two even though it seems good replacing it to see if it fixes it would be the first step in troubleshooting the problem. to eliminate the easiest most obvious solution first. i think a new bulb will fix your problem

99 Chevy Tahoe... Rear turn signals, brake lights, and hazards


I had this problem, and to be honest, it happened to the left side about a week later...it's the board that the bulbs plug into...it's a very common problem with this model. So popular that you can normally get the socket board off the shelf at a parts store! it's extremely simple to replace, and I replaced all the bulbs at the same time!

2005 Canyon turn signal problem


No, but that's probably where your problem is. The wires get the hell beat out of them by stones, and then they short out and cause problems. I would take a look at it.
