1988 acccord turn signal acts like light is blown

I have an 88 accord LXi. All turn signal bulbs are good (one in front and back). Right flashers work fine but left side flashes quickly like a bulb is blown. Any ideas?

Check the earth to the offending light unit. Clean all the relevant connections. You could also try fitting a temporary earth cable and watch for any improvement. If you find that there is improvement in the operation of the indicator/flasher make the temporary earth cable permanent.

Front right and back right turn signal wont work but the front left and back left do


first check the bulbs on that side by visual or changing to the other side if you can't see that well if the bulbs from the front and back work or are good when checked the flasher has blown out on one side and you have to replace it other possible cause could be a broken wire for the right side lights so look at the connectors for that side front & back if all is good one more thing could do this the actual turn signal lever that you use to activate the signals could be bad for the right side especially if it does not go back to the normal position after making a turn and the steering wheel rotates back to it's normal position but the turn signal lever does not click back to the center position this would burn out that side from the signal constantly being on good luck stephen

Dodge ram 1500 2007 turn signal malfuction


Good job, and good joe to you for solvin it! Now you'll remember that's a common indicator of a burnt out bulb. For some reason I can't explain, that is how a bad bulb acts on the flasher unit - by more rapid clicking (breaking contact inside the flasher relay at a quicker rate). It seems both the front and rear signal lights have to be working for the normal flasher rate ...well good.

2004 Accord, left turn signal out, no indicator on dash, replaced both bulbs. Does signal flasher have seperate circuits for left and right side?


No, no seperate system. Your problem is generally caused by a burned out bulb, bad ground at tail light. A bad flasher would affect both sides. Front and rear must be good. Ck flasher plug in. Good Luck

Signal lights dont work when breaking


No,this is not normal,this normal when the emergency flashers are on,but not the turn signals.Check the bulbs(all of them)in the rear tail light assembleys.If you can not tell which bulbs are bad,replace them all.Does this vehicle have a trailer light plug?If it does,it could be in it.After the bulb replacement(look at bulbs in your hand to see if filiments are burned)replace the turn signal flasher.To find it turn key on,and left or right turn signal on,and listen,and feel for it under dash around the steering column.

1996 honda accord no turn signal


Check the wiring in the front and back to lights for shorts to ground, if nothing is found replace the turn signal switch, be careful to disarm the airbag before doing any work on the column as the steering wheel must be pulled to replace the turn switch.
