2000 nissan altima turn signal switch problem

This maybe close to the problem the other person has, the lights cut on and off and the high beam works, but turn signals on either direction when engaged, does not blink or do anything., The hazards work, so i figured it wasnt a flsher problem. Did these cars has faulty turn signals?
It clicks like it suppose to, but nothing happens, i check the fuse, and its fine.

    if you have recently replaced a bulb take it back out to make sure it is the right one. I have seen the wrong bulb installed and it makes front and back not work. generally it is on a specific side though. it sounds like the multi function switch has gone bad. that is the switch that controls blinkers, lights, high beams.

Also check the connector that the bulb socket plugs into the wiring if it has dirt and grime on it clean it off might not be getting a good connection and do this to front and rear both sides.

Right low beam headlight does not come on but my right turn signal will stay even tho i diddnt turn it on. If I cut on my high beams the rurn signal cuts off. Whats wrong? Helo


It could be the lamp control module !
Headlamps
Battery positive voltage (B+) is applied at all times to the lamp control module (LCM) through the underhood fuse block HDLP fuse.
When you place the headlamp switch in the HEAD position, the headlamps input to the LCM is grounded. The LCM then applies battery positive voltage (B+) through the underhood fuse block HDLOBML fuse and HDLOBMR fuse, which feed the left low beam headlamp and the right low beam headlamp respectively. When you activate the headlamp dimmer switch by pulling on the multifunction lever until the switch clicks, the high beam input circuit to the LCM in grounded . The LCM then removes battery positive voltage (B+) from the low beam headlamps and supplies battery positive voltage (B+) through the underhood fuse block HDHIBML fuse and HDHIBMR fuse, which feed the left high beam headlamp and the right high beam headlamp respectively.
Check this fuse in the left under hood fuse box first. HDLOBMR Fuse 18 10 Amp. RH Low Beam Headlamp . If the fuse is good check for B+ voltage with the low beams on . Use a test light or volt meter . If you look on top of fuse there are two metal tabs ,check there for B+ voltage , If no B+ voltage the LCM - lamp control module isn't supplying any .

I have a 97 nissan altima and my lowbeams dont work but my highbeams do and i already replaced headlights today?? what can i do


Could be your dimmer switch gone bad, that controls your low and high beams, the contacts for the low beam is usually the one that goes bad first, the high beam contact isn't used much.
My Oldsmobile had the same problem, only high beams worked, replace the dimmer switch and fixed the problem. Unfortunately with my car replacing the dimmer switch gave me a hard time. Most dimmer switches are located in the steering column underneath the dash board and a little hard to get at. Dimmer switch costs about 12 to 15 dollars, very cheap but very hard to reach and replace. The switch it self is activated with a small metal rod going up and down next to the steering column and into your turn signal lever, when you pull up it pushes the metal rod down to activate your high or low beam lights.

Why does my high beam only works on right side1998 nissan altima


If the fuse blows violently (i.e its pretty black inside the fuse as opposed to just the fuse link being melted) then its a dead short to ground. Follow the hot wire from the switch to the light, someplace its contacting metal and shorting out.

High my 1999 nissan altima low beam don't work only high beam . email wharr@allstate.com or adnanmasoon@gmail.com


it could be the headlamp switch. Check the relays first. look in owner manual for relay locations. Usually just one relay goes, so if both lights are out, that leads to the headlamp switch. It could also be in the high/low beam switch , which I think is on the turn signal swithc stalk. Does "Flash to Pass" work?

My high beams have no wiring harness going to the bulbs. The turn signals and low beams do.


contact ur nissan dealer, car should have high beams, especially if bulbs are in place, error on manufacturer, they should fix it free of charge, if not, call your lawyer.

The headlamp bulbs in these vehicles have 2 filaments- one for high beam and one for low beam.

Remove the bulb- being careful not to touch the glass part (oils from your skin can get on the glass and can actually cause hot spots and shorten the life of the bulb). You can see there are 3 wires in the connector. One will be ground. Using a test light, hook the clip to the poistive battery terminal and touch the pointed end to the metal contacts for each wire in the connector. One should complete the circuit and light the test light- ground is ok then. Now put the clip of your test light on the negative battery terminal. Turn the headlight switch on- high beam. Touch the point of test light to the terminals again and one should light- that's ok. Now make sure that the last wire completes a circuit when the headlamps are on low beam. If this checks out, look at the bulb and see if one of the filaments is broken. If your electrical checks aren't ok, check fuses- these are most likely ok, leading to a headlamp switch.
