Re: Driver side turn signal in 03 Accord inop
If it is the dashboard light which is not functioning then you will have to take clocks out to get to it and from experience this is not a very quick or easy solution but unfortunatley there is no other way of getting to them

First check both front and rear lft side bulbs. Then, I would check the signal relay. I think it is under the dash one the left side. Here is want your are looking for. A new one cost about $12-$15 at most parts stores. Last I would suspect the signal switch assembly on the column. (Perchance you have a trailer hitch plug? If so look there too)
turn on the LEFT (fullt functioning ) turn signal ,
get out of the car and look at what lights are blinking in the front.
now turn on the right (broken) signal and note which lights are NOT blinking that had been on the fully functioning signal indicator.
That is usually an indication of a blown bulb in the side that's blinking rapidly. Turn on the right side blinker and looking on the outside of the car, check all the bulbs that are supposed to blink and you will see on that is not blinking. Replace that bad bulb and the dash light will blink normally again.
replace flasher unit driver side, under dash, above fuse block, mounted on kick panel. Looks like picture below. Tell the parts store it runs both the turn signals and the hazards to make sure you get the right one.
No, no seperate system. Your problem is generally caused by a burned out bulb, bad ground at tail light. A bad flasher would affect both sides. Front and rear must be good. Ck flasher plug in. Good Luck
If the left side still works, its not the blinker relay, the thing you hear ticking. Both left and right signals go through the same signal stat. Turn on your hazard flashers and make sure the bulbs on both the left and right side come on. If the do, you may have a problem with the turn signal switch on the steering column itself. If only the left comes on, it could be bad bulbs on the right side or a wiring issue. Wiring issues are more rare on Park Aves.
When you select left or right do any of the bulbs come on? If you select left check front and back left side if one of the bulbs did not come on the flasher will not work. Change the bulb that is out. Same with the right. If the fuse for the turn signal is good (check fuse or replace do not use visual, some appear to be good but are not).
The emergency flasher is different from the turn signal flasher. Look at manual for location of turn signal flasher. If you manually lift and lower turn signal control you may hear a clicking under the dash to locate the flasher.
