Right turn signal

When I engage the right turn signal it blinks faster than normal. Is that a warning of a up coming problem or do I need to just replace a fuse or a bulb?

The rapid flashing normally means a blown bulb. In some cases if you replace the bulb and it still does not work the wires have been damaged somehow. You can check your bulbs by turning your ignition to accessory without starting the vehicle and turn the blinker on. Then get a visual on each light to confirm if it works or not.

I have an 02 kia sportage. my signal lights come on but dont blink outside. no lights for the signal lights come on on the dash at all. also, no hazard lights.


If the 15A HAZARD fuse in the passenger compartment fuse box is OK, power is getting to the hazard function of the flasher unit. Pressing the hzard switch should cause the hazard lights to flash. HOWEVER, there is an electronic time and warning indication system module connected to to the hazard switch lead and that may be affecting things. If the 10A TURN fuse is OK, power is applied to the turn switch (with the engine in START or RUN) and you state you can select a right or left turn. HOWEVER, the RED/WHT and RED/BLU outputs from the flasher unit connect directly to the front and rear turn lamps and the instrument cluster turn indicators so you are not getting any flasher output. Again, that electronic time & warning indication system module could be affecting things

When failed trun signal bulb, Jeep turning signal is fastly blinking. I changed rear turn signal bulb with LED bulb, but turn signal blinking speed doesn't go to normal, At first couple of seconds it is...


Try replacing with the same bulb type as was failed. Flasher unit isusually reliant on resistence from the bulbs to what speed that side will flash at when powered.Some of these led type have less resistence and that equates to a faster flash speed.That is why when one bulb blows that side will flash faster or may even stay on without flashing.You could even swap the led to the other side( to confirm.Check with the bulb retailer to whether they have those bulbs with a higher rated resistence in led.If this vehicle has leds as standard,you may need to get the correct type from dealer. Hope this helps or get back with findings if it still has fault after replacing bulb.

Normally with the blinker blinking really fast, it's telling you that one of the bulb is blown, front or rear signals. Check your fuse, and fuse relay to see if it would fix the promblem

How do I fix a turn signal light. The dash board right turn signal light is blinking faster than the left side? I need help


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.

Left turn signal blinks faster than right turn signal blinks


The blinker is made to warn you that one of the bulbs is not working. When it blinks faster than normal one or more bulbs are burned out.

I got a 2002 ford taurus and when i go to turn my headlights on the interior light dont work and the blinkers light up but they do blink when im turning, i was what it could be thats causing that thank...


Many turn signal lamps will have multiple bulbs in them. If "one" of the bulbs is faulty, the interior lamp or lamps will come on, indicating a bad bulb. You will need to turn on your left blinker and view the bulb and make sure all bulbs appear to be blinking on front and rear of the car, then repeat with the right blinker. If you find one that doesn't appear to look right or blinks faster slower or dimmer, then replace the bulbs in that turn signal. The interior light may begin working properly when you replace the "shorted" bulb for the turn signals. If it does not, check the fuses to make sure the "shorted" bulb didn't damage your fuse for the interior lights.

Turn signal blinks too fast


Try changing the flasher, it's in the fuse box, round in shape, and either blue or silver in color.The 4 way flasher is the same shape, to be sure you get the right one, put the left signal on and put your finger on it, if you feel it clicking, you have the right one.
