Signal lights work some times

All of my other lights seem to work and then the signal lights don't. Sometimes when I cut the car and restart it will work but not all the time

    1998 Plymouth Neon Sedan. The left turn signal light in the REAR does not work. The brake light in the left rear does not work either. But the left FRONT turn signal lights works with high frequency blinking. Right turn signal lights and brake lights are working fine. Checked the bulb in th rear and connections closer to the bulb. What could be the problem?

    My 2004 is doing the same thing. Did you replace the flasher as MrScary suggested? And if so, did that fix the problem?

Your Flasher is Starting to Die. It is under the Dash on the Top Right Corner of the Fuse Panel. Any parts store will have one and they Don't cost Much.

The engine seems to cut out intermitenly, it kind of bucks, it almost feels like the transmission kicking out of gear sometimes

Is the Transmission give you this problem, check this real quick jack up both front wheel and spin by hand. The wheel shoul spin in different direction as soon as you spin, if you spin one wheel and the other wheel don't spin right a way, and catch up later on then is the problem

Hi I would like to know how would I go about adjusting my 1999 polo playa 1.6i clutch cause it is to high can any1 help thanks 4 your advise

'Volkswagen Polo 1.9TDi 74KW, 2006 model sedan. Instrument cluster will reset, all lights come on sometimes with a loud beep sometimes with the horn also. It started first when I turn steering wheel to max either side then the airbag light will come on and I will loose power steering, then when switch off and restart all is fine but all counters are reset on the instrument cluster. Most recent incident when I was driving on highway and slacking off to take an exit then all the lights on dash was lit, lost power steering and loud beeping and I switched off engine and restarted (while freeing at high speed) then all OK again. Seems to happen more frequently but intermittent.' - has been answered - "'I had the same problem after I had my car serviced, the problem with the power steering was that the signal to the power steering pump was set to high and the pump cut out because it was receiving an incorrect signal, the instruments reseting was found that alot of the ground wires was loose, for some reason the abs sensor was also not adjusted correctly which made the abs light come on as well. I took the car to another service centre and they adjusted the abs sensor and the signal to the pump and checked all my wirring - had no problems since - Christiaan from South Africa'"

In my 2002 Pontiac Bonneville I intermitently lose the majority of my dash functions. Speedometer wont work, odometer, signal lights etc. There is no pattern to when it happens, seems random. Have had...

Most of the GM's I do are the plug that goes to the instrument panel. They just loose contact, 90% of the time I will unplug and plug them in and that fixes the problem. Some times I have to bend the tabs in the plug to make a snugger fit. Just don't bend to much. One time some one cut the data link connector off and the wires where grounding out intermittantly. That one was a pain.

When signal light is on, there is no clicking noise.

are the signal lights working if so don`t worry about it as sometimes the manufacture has tried to make the interior so quiet sometimes you don`t hear anything.

Signal lights work when they want to.

It seems you have an electrical short somewhere. Unfortunately these are not easy to diagnose. Look for any broken or frayed wiring. With the lights on, flex the wiring harness in and around the areas that connect to each light to see if you can make the light go on and off.
