Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

I was doing some work on my headlights Afterwards, when I was performing a basic check....i found that my hazards fuse was blown & my right turn signal kept blinking every so often unless I set the lever to the left signal, at which point nothing would blink at all. after switching the turn signal fuse to the hazards slot, I managed to at least kill the annoying constant clicking in the dash. now, my hazards work as they are supposed to, but if I put a fuse in the signal fuse slot, the same turn signal malfunction returns. the question I have is...if the relay or unit for both are in fact one in the same...why are my hazards unaffected aside from the initial blown fuse? & how do I get my signals working properly again?

replace the turn signal switch it self, mine did the same thing with the left turn signal, put in fuse and it will continue to flash... went to junk yard pulled one out of a 97 avenger just like mine, swapped them out and now it works fine. looked to be like some corrosion... to repace: 3 screws under columb, 2 screws on side of signal switch (black plastic side). unplug and replace

SOURCE: 99 Chevy Tahoe... Rear turn signals, brake lights, and hazards

I had this problem, and to be honest, it happened to the left side about a week later...it's the board that the bulbs plug into...it's a very common problem with this model. So popular that you can normally get the socket board off the shelf at a parts store! it's extremely simple to replace, and I replaced all the bulbs at the same time!

Turn signals dont work.but the hazards wirk.on a 04 aztek


the Hazards and blinkers are usually on different circuits. gotta start at the basics work your way through the system. Check your fuse panel, might as well check all your fuses and replace all blown fuses. if you don't find a blown fuse then I would check the bulbs, if they are the same bulds as the Hazards then you know there good. then I would check for power at the Multiswitch ,the multiswitch is the blinker, cruise control, wiper switch usually on the left side of the steering wheel. if you have power at the switch then replace the multiswitch.

Fusible link toyota starlet


Blown fusible link can be the problem.Take all the fuses out and spray contact clean on all fuse connections ,then reinstall fuses after a light sanding with fine sand paper.You can make a new fusible link by wiring in an inline fuse.If you don't know the amperage of the blown fusible link,go with a 20 amp fuse if it's for the lights.
Nice car.

Show me the right fuse to replace my headlights and blinkers


When you turn on the headlights or hazard lights, and when you use the turn signals you should hear clicks from under the dash. All the exterior and interior lights are controlled by the Lighting Control Module which is typically under the dash to the right of the steering column. If you do not hear clicks when you try the headlights and signals, and the interior lights do not work then the module is not operating. Your operator's manual will tell you which fuses are for the module.If you don't have the manual, you can find blown fuses with a fuse tester, voltmeter or by checking with an auto parts store like O'Reilly or Autozone, who will give you the info for free and may even help you find the fuses. Inspect the fuses and replace any blown fuses. If the lights still do not work, there is most likely a problem with the module which will need to be replaced, or there is a short in the wiring to the module from the fuses. It's possible something fell into the module and is shorting it out. If any electrical work was done, the work may also have shorted the wiring.

So the checking order would be: 1) Check the fuses, 2) check for wiring shorts and damage, 3) replace the Lighting Control Module. If you do replace the module, be certain to get the correct one for your car (the modules should look the same) and make sure the jumpers on the board are in the same positions as in your original module.

Turn signals do not work


This is one FLASHER fault; ?m referring to the blinker "flasher fuse", it is the bottom round fuse under the dash in the fuse block.

REPLACEMENTThe turn signal flasher and hazard units are usually located located under the dash either to the left or right of the steering column on most models.
  1. Remove the turn signal flasher unit or hazard unit by pulling them up from the electrical connection.
  2. To install, push the unit(s) into the electrical connector

Good luck (remember comment and rated this).

I have a Mitsubishi Eclipse 2000 Gt. I recently been having problems with the right headlight. I thought it it went out. So i went to auto zone and bought a new bulb. But it still won't turn on. So i tried...


Did you check the socket that bulb plugs into.I hav seen where they melt for, the hat produced by the bulb.If that isnt the issue,I would suspect the headlight switch.But first stick to basics.Check all the fuses.

Brake Lights do not work and hazard button is stuck


I could not tell you how many times people have brought their cars into my shop and tell me that they had already checked all fues and they are OK, then I check the car and find a blown fuse or a fuse that is completely missing.

Your dash (Instrument Cluster) illumination lights are powered by the "PARK LP" fuse in the underhood fuse panel - it is fuse number 37 and should be a 20 Amp fuse. If this fuse is blown, your Park lights on the exterior of the car will also not be working. If they are working and your dash lights are not, then the problem is probably in your headlamp switch.

Your Brake lights are powered by the "STOP LAMP" fuse in the instrument panel (IP) fuse block it is a 15 Amp fuse.

Your Hazzard lights are powered by the "HAZZARD" fuse in the (IP) also a 15 Ap fuse.

If both of these fuses are good, then the most likely problem with your brake and hazzard lamps is the multifunction (Turn Signal) switch.

What any of the above has to do with replacing your window regulators remains a mystery.
