More than likely the turning signal module is shorting out and needs to be replaced or the harness connecting to it is shorting out hence the drain.. To stop the drain remove the indicator fuse and relay from the fuse box under the hood. This will also prevent an electrical fire and get this looked at asap. from a trained professional... I would also recommend you remove the negative battery terminal.

SOURCE: 1991 Ford E150 turn signals do not work,emergancy flashers flash constantlly unless the flasher relay is unplugged from fuse block

Hi,

If I understand you right based on your post/description, the signal lights would still turn on even if any or both of the flasher relays are removed. Should this be the case, then the signal lights are not getting the power from the flasher relays but from the brake light circuit.

Perhaps your concern is not with any of the flasher, but simply missing or loose ground more particularly with the rear lights. Perhaps you could try determining which of the wires for the brake lights and signal lights (as they come out of the light assembly) would be ground . A test and even possibly a temporary workaround is to hard wire a second ground connection from the determined ground wire of the lights and attach it to any conveniently located bolt or screw to the body. it may be to your advantage to do this on all the rear lights assembly.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

Look in the fuse panel and the turn signal flasher is the big round most likely yellow or silver in the corner of fuse panel. The emergency flasher is in the back side of fuse panel right directly behind the turn signal flasher.
Remove the emergency flasher and install it in place of the turn signal flasher and see if this corrects the problem and if so get a new flasher. If this does not correct it problem will most likely be the multi-function switch.

You may have two relays one for hazards and one for turn indicators.

The emergency flasher and the turn signal flasher are two separate items. You could have a defective T/S flasher.

Left and side signal light is not working plese give fuse circuit detail and signal light wiring


First you should check the front and back bulbs to make sure they're good and original stock (not LED Replacements, which draw less power.) Analog flashers need full power running through them to keep them alternating.

My turn signals won't come on at all?


check the fuse if good then turn on the hazard lights if they work then you probably need a turn signal flasher which is a separate flasher unit then the hazard one.it usually looks like the hazard one so with the hazards on and locate it then you will know what the signal flasher looks like and you will also know not to change the wrong flasher unit.the signal flasher is often located at or near the under dash fuse panel or somewhere in the dash you don`t say what type of car your talking about.

I have a 1998 Isuzu Trooper. The battery keeps going dead. I bought a new battery and took the alternator off and had it checked. The alternator is good and the battery keeps dying. Is there a fuse I am...


Well, not necessarily a fuse, but a current draw. You need to find the draw.

Pull the fuse for the interior lights (so you can open doors and not alter your tests) and clock. Take off negative battery cable and put the volt meter or test light in series between batt terminal and cable. If the light lights or volts higer that a couple of volts, disconnect items one at a time and re test.

Start with the alternator, it is the most likely. It has a series of diodes that change current from alternating to DC, when one fails it leaks current. The unit may still charge, but not as well as with good diodes. The only test for diodes is a scope, or take it apart and test them individually. Use ohms and current flow in one direction, reverse test leads and no current. Failed diode will flow or connect in both directions.

Anyways, you will have an answer pretty quick if you test battery current draw and disconnect one system at a time and retest.

check to see if the flasher is weak, a quick way to test it is to swap it with the flasher for the 4 ways ( hazard lites ) and try it.

2004 wrangler blinker problem


What other problem did you have before the signals quit? Something that stopped all functions from the signals has to be either a feed or ground IF the flasher is good. Signals feed. Hot wire from the flasher 1 and it should blink underload, but not with a test light or DVM. In other words using a test light the flasher wire should be powered steady. All the rest of the switch is switchable. You should also get a hot wire when the brake pedal is pushed. Check for power at the brake switch,key off.
