Question about 1997 Chevrolet Suburban

1 Answer

1997 Suburban About a month ago, my turn signal' began acting up. When I would use the turn signal, or even when I wasn't, the turn signals began to flash on their own. The would flash fast, then slow. Also, I could hear the combination relay ticking underneath my dash. So I replaced the relay, in addition to the bulbs in the front and back turn lamps. Problem solved, or so I thought. While driving home from vacation the other day, I used my turn signal and my problems started all over again. Now, even with the relay removed, my right turn signal is stuck in the ON position (bright), but doesn't flash. Is it the relay or is there something else? Thanks in advance.

Well it sounds like you have a short circuit somewhere. it apperars to be messing with the relay that you replaced. have you checked all the fuses in your fuse-box? how about all the bulbs on the exterior of the vehicle? try those things then post back.

you need to check all the fuses,if they are ok you probably have a shorted brake switch and a shorted turn signal switch,or just a shorted turn signal switch.
