I have a 03 Alero 2.2L and the clicking sound of the turn signals kept going on even though I wasn't using them. I located the hazard switch and replaced it and that seemed to take care of that but now I...


If this turns out to be an electrical wiring problem, it will be a doozy!

I once found a problem with a friend's tail lights doing crazy things, signals bouncing all around, blinking when they shouldn't and so forth, reminds me of yours. He had replaced bulbs in a tail light with entirely wrong bulbs, was a two filament bulb (you know, with two little button terminals on the base) in a one filament, single contact button socket...or maybe vice versa, was a long time ago, but was the wrong bulb anyway, and caused that whole side of the rear lights to go crazy and just about drove him crazy too. Does this sound eerily familiar?
I would check the bulbs, make sure they are the right ones. Those corner lights, are they supposed to blink with the turns, or no?
Finally, and this may turn out to be your problem, you may have a bad turn signal switch. On American made cars, the brake light wire is routed through the turn signal switch. That's why they share the same filament in the same bulbs they work at...yeh, check the bulbs, then try a used turn switch from a salvage yard-just plug it into the harness connector without installing it first, and see if it solves the problem. If that not it, you will need professional help-and counseling maybe by then...no, I'm joking. Post back with what you find out.

On my 2004 impala, the front right turn signal doesn't work, (only works with hazard lights). And the back right signal is fast. The signal "clicking" sound is non stop but on the other hand...


If the turn signal filament of the right front park/turn lamp is known to be OK and the hazard switch is in the normal position, the hazard switch or the turn signal/multi-function switch could be defective

Left turn signal lights are not working


In my case the left front turn indicator lamp worked, but not the left rear indicator, although all the lamps would turn on with running lights activated, as well as the backup light and 'night-light' mode. The left rear turn indicator would not work with the hazard lights activated. I tested the combination switch (this is the left/right turn indicator switch you use when driving to indicate which direction you are going and is mounted/located on the steering column) and it tested O.K.. I had good continuity from the combination switch black wire, and resistance on the blue-white wire from there to the left rear turn indicator lamp, as well as good continuity on all wires going out from the left parking light fuse. Since the Haynes manual indicated that the flasher module was probably good if it made the tell-tale clicking sound, I was feeling perplexed. So I took it into a local shop that specialized in auto electrics and it turned out to be the flasher module. I was under the impression that it operated in a straight-forward left-right manner, but apparently it has a different circuit for each turn indicator lamp. So even if it is making the appropriate clicking sound when the combo switch is flipped, it could still be the flasher module. Obviously the manual leaves a bit to be desired in the troubleshooting of malfunctioning turn indicators.

My left turning light gets stuck just stays on even though you turn left and go back but my right turning light works fine


The turn signals are designed to tell you when a bulb burns out. Turn your signal light on and walk around the vehicle to check if the outside signal lights are working. Sounds like you have both front and rear bulbs burnt out for the left.

Jaguar xj6 break light cancels signal


Replace the turn signal switch. Bad contact inside causing a crossing of the circuits. When the turn signal is applied it should open the brake light circuit allowing for just the signal to work. Doesn't sound like the switch is doing it's job.
