Question about Cars & Trucks

Open Question

Volvo S40 2003, my front left turning signal is permanently on (but won't blink).

The rest of the lights on that side (and the other) work fine, but the other left turn lights blink extremely quickly as if one of the bulbs was out. I already tried replacing the bulb, but that didn't solve the problem.

    I'm not sure why there was a delay after replacing the bulb, but it seems to be working fine now.

SOURCE: 2002 Volvo V70, left turn signal will quick flash, rt side works

this issue appears many times because the wrong wattage bulb was used. the system measures the amperage flow to the individual bulb. if it falls outside the factory range ,, the indicator light will come on. I had a 1990 volvo myself. had a terrible time keeping good tail lights in that ****** but ABSOLUTELY loved that car. loved it so much I bought another (1998) model. it just wasnt the same driving experience as the 90 model though.
hope this helps...

SOURCE: Left turn signals won't flash, Right side works fine. Replaced front and rear turn bulbs (rear was burned out). Bulbs come on fine on the left side, they just won't flash.

Gday mate, we had a problem with another late model vehicle similar to that, the bulb that was put into the reverse light was not exact brand product ( ohmage was slightly wrong ) and fowled up computer, correct bulb in place and disconnect battery to reset K A M ( keep alive memory) problem solved, BEWARE, some vehicles cannot have KAM reset except for dealer computer tethered reboot , just try putting the factory correct bulb(s) in and see how it goes, geoff. hope this helped.

I have a 1991 celica and for some reason the front signals does not work at all. When I turn on the blinkers it blink really fast on both sides but hazard light works fine it blinks normal but it...


check the main earth wire near the battery. and one near the rear of the lights. unbolt them and clean the connectors up put some grease on them after. then check again. remember that when the earth wires come off the radio code will be needed to reset the the radio. be safe and take the battery off.

2000 volvo S70 turn signal


Get a schematic for the car and clean and work every connection in the wiring to your switch. Also chemically clean the innards of your switch(s)

Turn signals on my 1992 Park Avenue blinked slower and now donot work at all. My emergency flashers work fine and all blink but I have no turn signals and nothing lights up when signal is left or righ


About your 1992 Buick Park Avenue 3.8L SFI OHV 6cyl. the Flasher is located:
Hazard flasher: Front seating area, driver side, under dash, mounted above kick panel

Turn signal: Front seating area, driver side, under dash, driver side of steering column, mounted on support bracket

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I'll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using Fixya, and have a nice day.

Turn signals dont work on 1993 skylark. all bulbs are good. hazard lights blink fine. turnsignal dash light stays green and doesnt blink


There are 2 separate flasher relays. 1 for the turn signals and one for the hazards. I believe you have a bad flasher relay for the turn signals. The location of that is in the front seating area on the drivers side, under the dash on the drivers side of the steering column, mounted on support bracket. I provided a picture of what it should kind of look like although the picture I gave you is an aftermarket one so the color and such may be a little different but will look the same. Don't get it mixed up with the hazard relay which is located in the front seating area on the drivers side under the dash above the kick pane lmounted on top of the convenience. I am almost 100 percent sure the flasher and hazard relay are the same so if you want to just swap them out in order to have turn signals that should work. You won't have hazards however. I hope this helps you and good luck.
