SOURCE: left turn signal, when on, causes lights to flash on dashboard

one of the lights has a ground fault, likely the ground wire is broken or badly corroded. so it could be either light on the affected side, check both front and rear light sockets for a ground wire or strap.(usually a black or green wire)

Lights dim


Was any of the brake light bulbs changed recently, the wrong type of bulb may be used causing a short in the socket, and making the rest of the brake and signal circuit malfunction. I no bulbs were recently replaced, start with checking for corrosion in each bulb socket, signal and brake bulb sockets. Let us know what you find

Left turn signal flashes fast but all four will flash. left front is dim.


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

Ok, today I replaced/removed several exterior lights: 1) I replaced the left headlight 2) I removed a burned out bulb from the high mount brakelight (local part store was out of stock, coming in...


I can help you out with the left turn signal not blinking. Maybe it's a flasher or the light bulbs aren't getting current through the wiring.

I can't help you out with the interior gauge lights not turning on when you turn the headlamps on. It may have to do with the headlamp switch, though.

I've never seen the lights on the radio not dim when the headlamp switch is turned on. hm.

Good luck on this repair.

Left turn indicator comes on dimly with application of brakes. No bulbs out.


Lots of possibilities, but the most common is a bad ground of the entire light assembly on the left rear.
That makes the left rear brake filament ground back up through the left rear turn signal ground, through the left rear signal filament, and all the way back up to the dash left indicator light, then finally to chassis ground. Just check if the left brake and left signal are both dim and come on together.

DASH LIGHTS DIM WHEN BRAKE OR LEFT BLINKER APPLIED


Pull the bulb out of both left side turn signals and check the filaments. As these are double filament bulbs, sometimes the filaments break and lay across the other creating a feedback issue.

Left low beam is dim


The mechanic didn't hook up the ground wire. The system is using the other light as it's ground and when this happens it causes the other light to go out.

Check the ground wires
