I would change out the turn signal bulb on the right front. A blown bulb can cause the fast flash issue. The signals staying on is not related to the bulb being blown. That is most likely a problem with the multifunction switch, the knob you use to signal.

    I change the bulb still not flashing.. & also checked the fuse that's fine as well.. One more thing.. On this 98 Buick century the same light bulb that flashes for turns is the same bulb that should be on during the day.. BUT it's not on during the day my left side is though.. That's why I'm really confused

Replace the front bulb, It requires more than of a 1/4 turn of the steering wheel to cancel the turning lights, If they don't cancel at all the switch under the steering wheel hub is broken.

First check all four of the turn signal lights. Usually one of the bulbs is bad. Sometimes is lit but not flashing, sometimes it is off. Replace that bulb.
Hope this helps.

On my grandmother's '98 Buick Century, the right front signal stopped working. Rear right signal blinking fast. I have replaced the front amber bulb and socket and still have same issue.


Could be a wiring problem, or the turn signal switch.
You could check the wiring with a meter, and also by using the emergency flashers. Those use a different circuit from the turn signals on most cars. If the light works using the 4-way flashers, the problem is probably the turn signal switch.
You need to know if the socket has power and ground when the lamp should be flashing.

Do you know how to do automotive electrical testing ? How to use a DVOM - digital volt ohm meter ? You have high resistance in the circuit . Use voltage drop to find the problem .

My right turn signal flashes rapidly, and after turning it suppose to turn off itself but i have to turn off the signal manually. the left sometimes turn off itself.. how can i fix this? 98 buick century


when signal is rapid it useually means that a light is out. About your signal not turning it self off.
That is a defective indicator switch which useually means removal of steering wheel.

I have a 1998 Buick Century, and the right turn signal in the front stopped working suddenly. The turn signal on the right in the back flashes very fast, but nothing flashes in the front. The turn signals...


The bulb in front is somehow not getting voltage. If memory serves, that headlight assy. has a circuit board of some type, and your problem most likely lies there.

My left turn signal goes too fast when i want to make a left turn but my right turn signal is fine... how do i make the left one normal again?


Replace the burned out bulb. It is flashing fast to alert you that bulb is burnt out. Turn on the side that works properly & note all bulbs flashing in front, rear & side. Most likely there is at least 1 burnt out on the other side.

Turn signals flashing rapidly


This fast flash is caused by a burnt out bulb in the front or rear.

Remove the bulbs one at a time and check for dirt and corrosion at the contacs inside the sockets.The corrosion will cause higher than normal resistence and will make the signal to flash rapidly.As this only happens to the right side only check the right side.
