There is a dashlight rheostat switch in the instrument cluster. You should see 2 buttons in the cluster. The one that resets the trip meter is also the knob you turn for dash light brightness. Turn it back and forth a few time to clean any corrosion that may be on the rheostat. I had an old German once tell me to just stake ze knob und go dis vay und dat vay (left and right) und dis vay und dat vay until dey vork right. Try that. If you still have a problem the rheostat will have to be replaced.

Drivers side turn signal blinking fast other side normal, bulb change didn't help


Even after bulb change, do all lamps work? Bad ground can be shown by weak or dim bulb sometimes and this can cause fast flashing. All bulbs which flash must be working and of normal brightness which is sometimes hard to tell when they blink really fast.

95 Mazda 323 Hatchback - front left turn signal works sometimes. When not working, indicator blinks fast and rear left signal light blinks quickly as well. I was told it was the bulb but how can that


Could be a faulty socket too. The flasher "blinks" slow when all lights are functioning. A short to ground, to another circuit, or an open circuit can make the flasher blink fast.

Signal lights on dashboard


I would start at the left brake light. Check the bulb and wiring. Your brake light could be grounding through the blinker circuit.

1997 Dodge Neon left signal lights work great. Right side blinks very fast.


Has the car been in a fender bender ? check for wiring going to the front and rear lights to see if on has rubbed into a ground wire or the body. ( even if there has been no accident.)

Right blinker blinking fast and then now sound or light on either right or left and brake light does not work now.


when you have a fast blinking light the front or rear turn signal is probably blown and for your brake light check your fuse.

Left turn signal blinking fast in front of vehicle, but not blinking in rear of vehicle 2004


That is an indicator that the bulb in the rear is burned out. Most vehicles built since 1995 use this method to tell owners that a blinker is out at a location on that side of the vehicle. Replace the bulb in the rear and it should work fine.
