2001 S60 Right Turn Signal Blinks Rapidly compared to Left Signal

The right turn signal probably blinks nearly 4 times per second compared to 2 or less for the left turn signal. I changed out the front and rear right side turn signal bulbs, but problem still exists. Is there a flasher module in this vehicle that controls turn signal speed or is it controlled strictly by the bulb itself?

Gregg -

I had the same problem. It was a defective lamp socket on the driver's left side, Volvo Part Number 8662985. Costs me $11.24 to replace the lamp socket, which included the bulb. If you've already replaced the bulbs yourself, you will find replacing the socket pretty easy, just use a thin flathead screwdriver to delicately pry off the metal retainer clip which holds the lamp socket in place, as you'll need to reinstall the existing metal retainer clip once you've replaced the lamp socket. Two minute job.

There is probably a flasher relay under the drivers side dash. turn on the turn signal and listen under the dash you should be able to here is click that way you can find it. make sure you don't have any turn signal bulbs out first as this is usually the cause.

hope this helped
please rate good.

2003 Jeep liberty right front turn signal


why skip RR lamp? what does IT DO? be like 1st 1st look.
dim, out, fast?

the rapid is talking to you
it means current is wrong,
shorted, or open lines. to the right.
its the wiring
if the bulbs are like 1157 brass base bulbs
why not replace them first , they can short inside,
asking online for guessing is silly, why listen to 10 examples for this.
but is cut wires.
shorted wires.
keep i mind the blinker asks funny for both opens and shorts
its a feature, that.
low current or too much.

the acid test is connect 2 TEST bulbs in parallel to the multi-function switch output right side,
blinks ok now, bingo bad lamps or bad wiring, from there to the right side.

if the hazard fails you never said????
if rigth front is dim or dead the bulb is blown or shorted
if new bulb there , then the wires are shorted.
to it.
the only help on line worth squat is how to test and use your meter.
you can, check for voltage
you can check continuity on that line (its just 1 wire)
and check for shorts on that wire to ground (lamps pulled right side to do that, lamps read 0 ohms cold)
look for collision damage RF? behind lamp sockets?
be first.
in my book.
looking is always first. sure.


I have your SM book open now, chapter 8w-50
the haz/blink module has just 2 pins, left and right out.
pin 3 on the module runs front and rear blinks, (a fact to know)
RF is BR/RD, brown -red stripe?
all comments USA on USA forum. USA car.
ok?

the right side lamp (sidemaker) only blinks turns if parks ARE oFF

Id try 2 new blinker lamps front and 1 rear.
that be first. or test the lamp on a battery , and no not get burned fingers hot wring a shorted lamp.

wish i knew
what rear did
and what both did on HAZ
out, dim or to fast.

2001 Toyota Tocama 1) Right turn signal comes on when I brake, it does not flash it just comes on. 2) If I have it turned on, it will not flash whilel the brake pedal is pressed. 3) When I turn on left...


If you have an aftermarket trailer towing plug, that's the first place to look. There is probably a short in the wires, and when you push the brake, the signal light comes on. If not, then it will be a bare wire somewhere, probably at the back where gravel stones can hit them.

Driver front turn signal does not blink. front


This may have more then one bulb in the front or possibly a bad socket try wiggling the new bulb in the socket to see if it will work.Compare all turn signal lights that come on the passenger side to those drivers side.Some vehicles also incorporate sidemarker lights with the turn signals.

Left Turn Signal Rapidly Blinks


Sounds to me like a bad ground. When the current can't complete through a ground circit it feeds back through the elements ancd can cause all sorts of wierd syptoms.

The fast blink itself can be casued by a burnt out bulb I would check that first.

Then I would check the trailter harness if there is one and unpluch any harness that may be plugged into it. also check each bulb to see if it is seated well. you may be able to see if there is corrorsionaround the bulb terminals at this time is so yo may need to replace the light assembly. Also you could look for any spot where maybe someone in the past tried to tie into the harness to hook up additional lights etc. this may allo moisture in and corroded to the point the wire is "open"
