That is your problem, the left front that is dim is the problem. it flashes fast due to the voltage output, remove the left front and check the bulb and the socket and then check the ground to socket.

Most of the time a dim light is due to a bad ground, the ground problem may be in the socket or the ground wire to socket, the socket may be rusty causing a bad connection.

    the lamp is a 1157 type and one side burns bright. Aren't they using the same ground?

You need to replace the left front light. The quick flashing is like your check engine light for your blinkers. Once you replace it everything will go back to normal

SOURCE: 2000 Accord turn signal problem

either the front or the rear turn signal bulb is blown, that is why the flash frequency is high. replace the bulb and the problem will be solved. best to replace both the front and rear turn signal bulbs. good luck.

SOURCE: 1988 acccord turn signal acts like light is blown

Check the earth to the offending light unit. Clean all the relevant connections. You could also try fitting a temporary earth cable and watch for any improvement. If you find that there is improvement in the operation of the indicator/flasher make the temporary earth cable permanent.

SOURCE: 89 Honda Accord brake light and turn signal seem connected

Looks as though you have earthing problems.
I would make sure that the earthing is O.K on flasher and brake.
You would then find your symptom disappear.

Hope that sorts it.

Check fuses.. There is a fuse that controls that. Marker lights and signal lights will still work just not blink.

SOURCE: My left front turn signal

Hi, the problem is with the wiring or the bulb socket--usually the socket. If you have a 12 volt test light, see if you can get the test light to come on by attaching the test light clip to a bare metal point near the socket and probing the socket terminals while the blinker is on. One of the terminals is for the parking light and one is for the signal. (The bulb should have 2 terminals as well--type 1157) If the test light will blink when you probe the correct socket terminal, see if you can clean out the socket to where the bulb will work. If not, you might also try moving the test light clip to the side of the socket and probe again. If the test light will not light when the clip is on the socket ground but will light when the clip is on a chassis ground, this tells you the ground wire from the chassis to the socket is bad. If the test light still works with the clip on the socket ground, but the bulb will not light, replace the socket.
If the test light will not come on at all, you will need to trace and repair the wiring or replace the faulty wire.

VEHICLE RELAYS Operation Diagnosis
Turn Signal Lamps
The HAZ LP fuse in the underhood fuse block supplies battery positive voltage to the multifunction hazard switch assembly. The TURN fuse in the IP fuse block supplies Ignition positive voltage to the multifunction turn signal switch assembly. With the ignition switch in the RUN or START position, ignition positive voltage is connected through the multifunction turn signal and hazard switch assembly to the flasher module which is grounded at G205. When the turn signal switch is placed in either the left or right position, the circuit is complete from the flasher module to the turn signal lamps and to ground. The flasher module then sends an on-off voltage signal to either the left or right turn signals and their instrument panel cluster (IPC) indicator. When the hazard switch is activated, all turn signal lamps will flash including both IPC turn indicators. The front turn signals are grounded at G111 and G112. The rear turn signals are grounded at G475 and G422 on the pickup and G450 on the utility.

Why does nothing at all happen when hazard switch is pushed in to on position?


If your Hazard lights flash when you turn them on then it could possibly be the bulb behind the Hazard Button. There is a tiny bulb behind the switch to indicate when it is turned on. This bulb has possibly burned out and is in need of replacement. If your Hazard lights don't flash when pushing the switch it could possibly be that somewhere along your four flasher lamps there is a bad bulb or maybe more. Since you've checked the fuses and came to the conclusion that all were fine.

Turn signals not working


all else on car works perfectly (other shoe drops??????)
waring 1: no scan tool, you will fail (99%)
is battery fully charged to 12.6vdc rested or at 10v?
all 4 corners dead?
not working means dead?, flashes too fast/slow or dim? or they stick on? (5 modes to fail not counting L/R and haz)
do the hazards work? (prime evidence and not stated)
most cars before 2007 have fuse marked TURN.
but not this car... its not at all like older cars....
did you scan it first after the fuse tests? any PCM scan tool.?
2009 WK jeep
the FSM chapter 8L shows the huge list of errors the lamps can fail. DTC errors.
in fact 8 blinker codes, ! DTC errors,

there is no fuse, just for turns, (trailer lamps fuse 19)

read this excerpt from the FSM book.

The turn signal system operates on battery current received on a fused ignition switch output (run) circuit so that the
turn signals will only operate with the ignition switch in the On position. The hazard warning system operates on
non-switched battery current received on a fused B(+) circuit so that the hazard warning remains operational regardless
of the ignition switch position. When the turn signal system is activated, the circuitry of the left multi-function
switch and the FCM will cause the selected (right or left) turn signal indicator, front park/turn signal lamp, front side
marker lamp and rear tail/stop/turn signal lamp to flash on and off. When the hazard warning system is activated,
the circuitry of the hazard warning switch and the FCM will cause both the right side and the left side turn signal
indicators, front park/turn signal lamps, front side marker lamps and rear tail/stop/turn signal lamps to flash on and
off. The Front Control Module (FCM) can also activate the hazard warning system lamps.
end quote)

the module front control MFC, runs this
and it uses fuse 18 , if 18 blows the module goes off line and vast things fail and huge numbers OF DTCs store.
and fuse 27 MFC
MFC needs these fuses good.
keep in mind nobody has MFC internal schematics...so........



this module drives left and right side front and rear.
electronic drivers, not fuses.
the MFC is here.
the fuses are 12,13,18, 20,27 that power MFC.

My left turn signal was flashing fast. I checked bulb in back left. Turn signal good but bulb below it was out. I changed that one but turn signal still flashing fast. all other bulbs look good. ??


If the front and rear bulbs flash fast also, replace the hazard switch or you could live with it. As they are working. If one doesn't work, check grounds. I just run a new ground, much easier than cutting open the harness to find the break.

1994 3500hd front left turn signal won't work


The wire feeding the front left turn signal is likely crimped or stretched and touching the body somewhere. Do you best to trace the left front turnsignal wire back as far as you can - even just jiggling it might give you short term solution (although it will probably come back).
The fast flash of the rear light is because the short up front is letting too much electricity run through the flasher module. This makes it run too fast. Find the short up front, and both problems will be solved.

Right turn signal lights flash very fast


check to see if the front or rear bulb is burned out most of the time one bulb burns out causing a faster flash on that side.

When u turn left turn signal on they flash really fast and the light on fender doesnt light up now with no turn signals on and you push horn button left side starts flashing with the fender on flashing...


dear,

firstly make all the bulbs glow in the indicator segment.
this will moderate the flasher speed as due to even one bulb fused, causes other bulbs to glow at high rate.

thanx

Turn Lamps
Voltage is applied through the TURN fuse and the turn/hazard flasher when the ignition switch is in the following positions:
• RUN
• BULB TEST
• START
The voltage travels to the contact in the hazard switch. The hazard switch is located in the turn/hazard-headlamp switch assembly. This contact is normally closed.
When the left turn signal is turned on, voltage is applied to the following components.
• The left turn indicator
• The left front park/turn lamp circuit 14
• The left rear turn lamp circuit 18
The turn lamps turn on immediately. The current flow heats up the timing element. The timing element is located in the turn/hazard flasher. The timing element repeatedly opens and closes the circuit. This action causes the turn lamps to begin flashing.
The voltage that is applied to the left front park/turn lamp is also applied to the left front marker lamp. If the headlamp switch is in the OFF position, the left front marker lamp will find a path to ground through one of the following lamps. The following lamps provide low resistance paths to ground:
• The right front marker lamp
• The right turn indicator
• The right front park/turn lamps
• The left front park/turn lamps
The left front marker lamp flashes with the turn lamps. The voltage drop across the marker lamp is much higher than the voltage drop across the other lamps. The lamps that are used for the ground path will not flash.
When the headlamp switch is in either the PARK or HEAD positions, voltage is applied through the following components:
• The EXT LP fuse
• The marker lamps
• The park lamps
When the left turn signal is turned on, the left marker lamp will have voltage at both connections. The left marker lamp does not light. When the turn/hazard flasher stops the voltage to the turn lamps, the marker lamp is grounded through the turn lamp. The marker lamp does not go on. The left front marker lamp flashes in the following manner:
• The left front marker lamp flashes on when the turn filament of the left front park/turn lamp goes off.
• The left front marker lamp flashes off when the turn filament of the left front park/turn lamp goes on.
Voltage is applied to the right lamps in the same manner, when the right turn signal is turned on.
Hazard Lamps
Voltage is applied at all times through the following components to the normally open contact of the hazard switch in the turn/hazard-headlamp switch assembly:
• The STOP HAZ fuse
• The turn/hazard flasher
When the hazard switch is turned on, voltage is applied to the following components:
• The front turn lamps
• The rear turn lamps
The following lamps flash on and off:
• All of the turn lamps
• Both of the turn indicators
The front marker lamps flash with the hazard lamps on, just as the front marker lamps flash when the turn lamps are on. If the headlamp switch is in the OFF position, the front marker lamps flash on when the hazard lamps are on. The front marker lights will flash on when the hazard lamps are on if the headlamp switch is in one of the following positions:
• PARK
• HEAD
When the hazard lamps are on, the following conditions apply:
• The turn circuit is always open.
• The turn/hazard flasher controls the lamp.
Park/Marker Lamps
Voltage is applied through the EXT LP fuse, to the headlamp switch at all times. Voltage is applied to the park lamps and the marker lamps when the headlamp switch is in the following positions:
• PARK
• HEAD
The front marker lamps are grounded through the turn filament of the respective front park/turn lamp. The front marker lamps light as a result.
Stop Lamps
Voltage is applied through the STOP HAZ fuse to the brake switch at all times. When the brake pedal is depressed, the brake switch closes. This action applies voltage through the turn/hazard-headlamp switch assembly to the following lamps:
• The high mounted stop lamp assembly
• The left tail/stop-turn lamps
• The right tail/stop-turn lamps

Jeep - right turnsignal won't flash


Probably a bad ground on your front right signal, or a bad bulb. Try switching the right with the left, and see if the problem stays in the same place, or goes with the bulb.
