All signals and other flashers work but passenger front flashers do not work


Use a test light, test for power and ground at the bulb contacts. Then test for power and ground at the wires. Probably needs a new socket, common problem.

Brake light trouble right side brake light will not come on but both flashers work also turn signals work older ford truck what could the problem


I have to think the problem is inside the turn signal switch, a poor internal connection. You know the brake signal first goes through the turn switch before it goes to the bulbs. That is why the brake lights and rear turn signal lights share the same filament in the bulb, and the same wire going to those lights. The only difference is the turning side light is affected by the turn signal flasher, causing blinking, while the other side- the non turning side-does not go through the flasher relay, but straight to the bulb from the turn signal switch. Change your turn signal switch and I believe you will solve the problem. Let me know, okay?

Emergency Flashers totally out, Rear lights malfunctioning


Check the ground on the passenger side rear lights, it's likely bad. As for the hazards, sounds like a bad flasher or fuse.

Brake lights quit working on the driver and passenger sides but the top middle lighgt works.running light and back up lights work no blowns fuses good bulbs. very puzzeling!


I recently had this problem,it appears to be in the emergency flasher button.at first no brake lights but center one worked. the emergency button was stuck and hard to move but once i got it loose i had all brake lights, so thinking my problem was solved i checked all lights and then found i had no signal lights, i went bach to the flasher button because it was still very hard to move and pressed down further and all lights work now so i think this will cure most turn and brake signal problems. the flasher button is rarely used and collects dust so it starts to stick and when you dust your dash or bump the button it will stick between contacts and the lights stop working. hope this helps!!

Brake light problems on a 2000 chevy lumina


Will your Center High-Mount Stop Light (CHMSL) illuminate when you depress the brake pedal, but the lower/outer lights will not?
-- Do you have to hold the signal lever in a certain spot to get the turn signals to flash?
-- Do you have to hold the signal lever in a certain spot to get the lower/outer brake lights to illuminate?
-- Will the signals work in one direction, but not the other?
If you answered yes to any of the preceeding questions, your turn signal switch is likely malfunctioning.

**One more question before we continue: Is the turn signal lever not "cancelling" (returning to the "off" position) after you make a turn? If this is the case, you have a broken "cancelling spring."


Before you begin disassembly of your steering column, verify the turn signal flasher is not malfunctioning. If your brake lights work fine, but not the signals (either direction,) then it's likely the flasher is burnt out. The flasher itself is located underneath the dash near where the steering column passes through the firewall

Passenger side signal does not work


Is it just the passenger side, or is it all turn signals? If it is all of them, it could be as simple as the flasher module. It is a small black box, relay, under the dash. Probably mounted on top of the steering column...it just pulls out...usually the most common symptom is the signal lights up but doesn't blink. It's possible that a bad flasher could cause just the pass side to not blink, but more commonly neither will blink. If the flasher isn't bad, it could be the turn signal switch itself. That involves removing the steering wheel to get to it, so for your sake I hope it's the flasher. Hope this helped some.
