Turn signal light on dashboard is solid but no flashing in rear or front.

Just bought this 1990 Chevy Lumina. Turn signal will not make anything flash. Dashboard shows solid light left or right but front and rear does not flash. Lights work. Just no flashing. Already replaced "flasher" fuse located under the glove box. The silver circular 2 pronged one... Any ideas?

Where did you get the flasher from? autozone? try to get another one from a good parts supplier. if not, check the bulbs themselves. if they are supposed to be a dual filiment bulb, and only a single filiment bulb is in there, it may not flash. try using the turn signals with the parking lights on. does this make a difference?

SOURCE: left turn signal, when on, causes lights to flash on dashboard

one of the lights has a ground fault, likely the ground wire is broken or badly corroded. so it could be either light on the affected side, check both front and rear light sockets for a ground wire or strap.(usually a black or green wire)

SOURCE: The dash lights are not working and the left rear

check the main fuse box under the hood,also check that the left front turn signal to see if the bulb is blown,sometimes when only one bulb is working it can cause it to flash much quicker,also check all the wiring there could be a short circuit somewhere ,this can also cause this problem.....hope this helps.....cheers

1998 chevy lumina: rear window brake light not working, left brake light not working, rear left turn signal not working


See if bulbs have burnt out in the left brake light and rear turn signal (one bulb if combined) and also rear center high mount brake light.

If the left turn signal has a slower speed than the right turn signal, this is a symptom of a bulb or bulbs burnt out.

Usually, the wiring is not a problem, but I would not rule wiring (or sockets) as a problem out.

Good luck on this repair.

Turn signal fuse keeps popping? Is there a flasher fuse If yes where is it?


You ahve a bare wire somewhere. You can pull signal lights out from front and rear and inspect wires. I have found most of the defects at the signals.

Electrical diagrams for brake lights and turn signals, for a 1995 chevy lumina


In a Lumina if the brake lights quit working but the upper one in the rear window still works or your tun signals flash weakly or a different speeds the turn signal switch needs replaced. I will cure the problem. Not to hard a job, but does require removing the steering wheel and air bag assembly.

Just bought second hand 98 chevy lumina and someone stopped me saying I have no brake lights, so I checked and I only see a place for backup lights and turn signal lights. Why do I not have any break...


The brake light in the rear window and the main brake lights are on a different circuit. After the signal leaves the activating switch on the brake pedal arm, it splits. One circuit goes straight to the high mount brake light, the other goes into the turn signal switch. If the rear turn signals work but the brake lights don't, suspect the turn signal switch, not the bulbs and wires. Better to check this before removing and checking bulbs, wires and fuses. It is a common problem with the W-body cars like Lumina, Monte Carlo, Buick Regal, Olds Cutlass and Pontiac Grand Prix. (Approx 94-99 models). Part number is GM 190005031 (w/o radio accessory control) or 19005032 (with radio controls)

Turn signal doesn't blink just lights up


You should check the bulbs first. Front and rear, park,brake and turn signals. I think you will find there is either a bad bulb or possibly a faulty socket. If those are fine it may be a flasher problem. You can find the flasher by turning the signal switch to the side that works with the key on and find the clicking flasher. Good luck!!!

1998 chevy lumina brake lights intermittent.


This is a classic example of turn signal switch failure. On GM vehicles with a multi-function turn signal switch and combination stop/turn/tail lights (all rear lights are behind red colored lenses except for back-up lights) The brake light power is routed through the turn signal switch. This makes it possible for the right rear light to function as a stop light while the left rear turn signal flashes, and vice-versa. When the contacts fail to remain constant the brake lights, and turn signals can become intermittent. The proof that the brake light switch is functioning correctly is that the high center (cyclops) brake light functions properly. Wiring integrity is verified if you can prove that turn signals operate, but that can still be intermittent with this complaint, BUT if you use your hazard switch to turn on all the signals at once, you can verify wiring integrity. This is because the turn signal, and the brake light use the same circuit, and bulb filament in the rear lighting assembly. If any Hazard lights fail to function, check bulbs first, then retest. If all Hazrd light flash correctly and reliably, bulbs, sockets, and wiring have proven integrity, and the turn signal switch is the remaining component in the system which needs to be tested. Unfortunately, this switch requires disassembly of the steering column for service, testing or replacement. If you have never disassembled, and successfully reassembled a GM tilt steering column, I would reccommend professional assistance.

96 chevy lumina sedan


for both issues, could possibly be the flasher unit for the blinkers.....which could be separate from the hazard flasher unit...(happened on my 92 chevy lumina) or the actual turn signal switch which is located in the steering column....not the stick you push, but the part inside that the lever controls (also happened on my lumina............3 times)

TIP:

start by checking the flasher....its cheap maybe 3-4$ for a new unit.....if thats not it and you figure out its the switch, go to a junkyard.....its wayyyy cheaper
