    Hi, What have you done to correct the problem? It is usually as simple as a bad bulb or blown fuse. Any additional information would help.

If you have no turn signal operation check the turn signal flasher unit. More often than mot this will be the problem. Your emergency flashers operate on another circuit with another flasher unit. The flasher units are very cheap to purchase and easy to gain access too.

Lights wont come on dashboard

It's hard for me to understand all of what you said, but I'd start with checking all of my fuses. Look for a blown fuse. Replace. If it blows again, you have a short somewhere.

My speedometer stops working sometimes


Sounds like a loose fitting behind the dashboard cluster. Stop knocking on it and remove the dash and take a look before you really case some jostling damage in other instruments.

Odometer stopped working, along with SOME of lites in dash board


Those bulbs may have just blown, or maybe a fuse is blown. But the odometer that is another thing, like maybe the cable but its not the neutral switch.
