I have a Chevrolet cobalt and the left turn signal will not work the inside light on dash flashes fast. I have changed the light bulb still doesn't work.


Fast flashing usually indicates that one of the exterior bulbs isn't functioning. You've checked front and rear signal lights, right? If the bulb is good, it could be corrosion in the socket, bad ground, broken wire, etc.

Have a 2009 chevy cobalt. the left turn tail light even though not fused will not blink, and the left indicator light flickers too fast. the right though is working perfectly


Buy a two pack of turn signal bulbs. Change the front and rear left bulbs and try it out. If you're lucky, you're done and got away cheap. If not, start chasing electrons. Not an overly complicated circuit, the signal is quick flashing because you have an inoperative lamp.

Town and counrty front right signal light flashing faster, rear light stop flashing


the signal indicator lights are suppose to flash in perticular time interval which is connected to a timer relay when the light flashes faster that means the other light is not working and the relay is getting double the current and moving faster so check the other light either the bulb is fuse or the current is not reaching up to the bulb

2008 Chevy Cobalt front right turn signal is not working. Back right signal blinks fast. Left signals work just fine. I tried replacing the bulb and it did not work. Do I need to replace the...


No - headlight ok.
The reason that the Right turn signal blinks fast is that there is half the normal load (resistance)
on the right side, since the Right front turn signal isn't working.
Since you replaced the Right front turn signal bulb, your problem lies in the bulb socket or
the wiring to the socket.
(1) try cleaning out the socket - there's probably a contact problem in the socket. You
may need to squeeze the contacts together to provide good contact to the socket contact.
(2) if contacts inside the socket are ok, try back-probing the socket - to make sure that the
socket is getting 12V DC to light the bulb. Replacing a bulb socket is easy, and commonly done.
Any auto parts dtore should be able to sell you a new socket - its just a matter of cutting out the
old one, and then splicing in the new one. Most shops will use small wire nuts, buried under several
wraps of E-tape (electrical tape).
(3) if bulb AND socket ok, you have the worst problem known to man - a wiring fault. In this case,
you'll want to run a new wire from the flasher module (under the dashboard) to the turn signal.

Front turn signal does not blink when turned on. bulb lights when lights are turned on.


Have you checked the rear turn signal on the same side? Usually when one (1) turn signal stops blinking another bulb on the same side has failed. It can be rear or side lights but most of the time it is the rear light on the same side that has failed so the front light will not blink.

Also I would check to see if there was 12V when the turn signal is selected and a ground on the bulb socket. (signal off)

Does the bulb have one or 2 contacts on the base of the bulb besides the barell? If it is a 2 contact bulb (1157) then there are separate circuits for the turn and parkling lights. Follow the socket wires back to the connector and check to see if there is corrosion in the socket or the pigtail connector. All of the terminals socket and pigtail connector should be clean. Also check for signs of any breakdown in the wires especially around terminal ends.

Your dealing with a 2 wire series circuit... power and ground. It takes both to make the bulb light.

Check the ground for Zero (0) Ohms and power for 12V. One of them has to be missing and you will need to find out where the break is in the circuit.

Often the ground is provided by the turn signal selector but if the selector is bad all lights on the same side would not work. If the rear light works and the front light does not then your problem is probably very near the front light.

1. Dirty socket terminal
2. Poor pigtail connector connections
3. Broken chassis ground or power wire

Thanks for using FixYa.

The left turn signal works intermittently and when it does blink it blinks twice as fast as the other one.


Check all the bulbs in the faulty side (front and rear), one of them must be the wrong type for application. Different blinking speed is the way of the system to tell you that something is not right. It only stops blinking if the bulb is burned out. I have seen that the most common problem is in the rear lights, using a stop light bulb ( two contacts) in the turn signal socket.

Front driver turn signal quit. changed bulb, worked for short time, then quit. bulb OK. passenger side quit 1-2 months later. bulb OK. neither front emergency flasher work. automatic daytime front lights...


Check for head light (daytime)relay to be bad,this might have to do with the turn signals also,if the turn signals on this car,also have running lights in them,If this relay is not bad,replace the body control module.

Turn signals won't flash


the flashing is genreally controlled by a relay switch in your car. probably the fuse for your relay is blown or your realy itsef might need to be replaed.
