1998 Dodge Durango Turn signals went out one at a time

I have a 1998 Dodge Durango. (5.3 V8 engine)

Last week, the left turn signal started working only sometimes. Then, it would work, but not when I was stepping on the brake. Now tonight, the right one went out as well.

I tried changing the fuse, but it did nothing, as I had expected. Does this sound like an electrical problem or something I may be able to fix myself? (i.e. flasher unit).

    Well, it's all the turn signals, including the hazard lights. Not only 1 turn signal. There is no click anymore when i turn it on, or arrows flashing in the dash.



    That's why i thought it would be the flasher cube, but checking the wiring is probably my first step before changing any parts.

My 1998 dodge durango slt wont drive past 40 miles an hour


Hello Jeff Winner,

Over the last 20 years ... cars have has a LIMITED OPERATION FEATURE added... When the engine READS something that is not IMMEDIATELY catastrophic... it will allow you to
LIMP home... rather than a complete shut down.

Limp mode:
You SHOULD also have a CHECK ENGINE light... (?)

My best advice is to limp on down to your near-by FREE code reading shop... and have a READER tell you what CODES are registered...

A blocked exhaust system will also seriously SLOW your progress
((soon to stop all-together)).

Hope this helps

Check you exhaust prices BEFORE you go...!!

1998 Dodge Durango, Headlights on, left turn sig on, but will not work. Turn headlights off, left turn signal works, but dash and radio lights fash to?


The headlight and turn signal are on two different switches and two different circuits. The main thing they both share is a ground connection.
I would check the ground and sockets for both the headlight and turn signal next.

1998 Dodge Durango flasher relays location


Turn on the Durango and check each of the four turn signals to make sure that the bulbs are not burned out. If you find one that has gone out, replace the bulb and retest the turn signals. When a bulb goes bad on this circuit, the resulting operation can mimic a bad flasher or one that is failing.

Locate the combination turn signal flasher and relay. It is on the left end of the driver's dash. Open the access door and view the collection of relays and fuses. At the left side of the mounting block is a larger flasher and relay. This is the combination turn signal flasher and relay.

Test the relay by placing you finger on the relay housing and activating the turn signal. If you have found the right one, you should feel a clicking as the turn signal blinks. Remove the relay, replace with the new relay and close the access door

.

Start the Durango and activate the turn signals to check that they each work. The light should turn on and should blink. Also, check the hazard lights to make sure they work.

.. Hi there.
This is a typical earth problem. Some of the lights use the same earth and when some of the earth points are not good, the power go through the other lights. That is why some lights go's faster, it's all about resistants. Check all the earth points in the light holders and under the dash and also between the battery, engine and body. Good luck.

2004 Dodge Durango: Left turn signal blinks fast


Check the bulb socket for a burnt or a shorted condition. Remove bulb and try another bulb, if it does it again then you have a short in the socket or wiring to bulb. Turn on the 4 way flashers and see what it will do. If it continues then look for any burnt wire connector or wireing to bulb. Check the wiring behind the light for any metal that has cut into the wiring insulation. Hope this will help you.
