Turn signal left front won't flah

Hello, I have a 1998 Buick Regal GS, left front signal does not flash. Left rear works just fine, right side front and rear also work just fine.

side marker does come on when left signal is applied. I have replaced the signal stat, cleaned all wiring contacts. also left indicator does not flash.

When this problem started the signal worked fine until the car was warmed up All grounds have been cleaned.

    The drivers side parking twilight sentinel does not come on but when I pull the knob the parking light comes on. My left turn signal does not blink but my rear tail light does and inside the car it blinks really fast. I had the bulb checked and it was good, I even bought a new build just to make sure and still the same problem. What do I need to fix to fix this problem? My right turn signals and twilight sentinel work. Only sometimes does it act up and flash very fast inside car but when I turn it off and turn the signal back on it works fine, but this is rare for the right signal to do it.

I dealt with a similar problem on an 01 Alero (very similar car) and found that the wire that grounds the signal filament of the bulb was broken inside the harness. I tapped into it and grounded it to the chassis and resolved the problem. It's no guarantee but if you have a multimeter, check each wire's continuity to ground as well as the impedance between each of the wires on the harness, on both front signals (for comparison purposes), and it'll show you if you have a problem such as the one I dealt with.

The right turn signal on my 1997 buick park avenue will not work. all other parts of this multi switch work


Does the front and rear light on the right side come on when you activate the switch ?
If a light is out the system won't flash.
If one side comes on and the other does not, the problem is usually in the turn signal switch.

Left turn signals won't flash, Right side works fine. Replaced front and rear turn bulbs (rear was burned out). Bulbs come on fine on the left side, they just won't flash.


Gday mate, we had a problem with another late model vehicle similar to that, the bulb that was put into the reverse light was not exact brand product ( ohmage was slightly wrong ) and fowled up computer, correct bulb in place and disconnect battery to reset K A M ( keep alive memory) problem solved, BEWARE, some vehicles cannot have KAM reset except for dealer computer tethered reboot , just try putting the factory correct bulb(s) in and see how it goes, geoff. hope this helped.

Left turn signal T/S/ socket melting around contacts some_left front signal light not flashing (but on), rear left IS flashing_auto store sold me lubricant/grease to coat on bulb end and in socket worked...


If the bulb socket is melted you will want to replace the socket then use the socket grease (diaelectric) to keep the bulb socket clean of dirt and moisture. The diaelectric grease will help disipate the heat also.
If the bulb base was melted, you will want to clean the socket thuroughly and make sure no plastic has melted on the contacts causing a bad electrical contact.

Turn signals flashing rapidly


This fast flash is caused by a burnt out bulb in the front or rear.
