Right blinker makes headlights go out. What could cause this?

When I'm driving at night and turn my right signal on, my headlights go out. The blinker continues to flash (can see it flashing on the road). The dash lights do not go out. When the blinker is cut off or turns off after turning the lights come back on... Also realized within a few minutes of this happening that my cooling fans are not coming on when they should. Had to turn a/c on to have the fans come on to keep from over heating. Sometimes the fan is on like it should and sometimes it doesn't. Not sure if maybe the two problems might be connected somehow. PLEASE HELP!!

You need to check your left side turn/park lamp bulbs for correct part # & installation.If that checks out you deffinetely have a ground problem.When you have other lights blinking with you turn signals you have either a bulb incorrect or a bad/poor ground.If bulbs check out check your forward lamp harness ground.Hope this helps

What would cause the right blinker light on the dash stay on but only when the headlights are on and blinker still blinks on my 2001 Pontiac trans am ws6 ?


That would be caused by a bad ground connection to either the front or rear parking/turn (probably rear) signal bulb socket. When the ground is bad, the parking light filament with find a ground through the blinker filament, then through the turn signal indicator, keeping it turned on. I have seen this on many cars over the years. Hope this helps, good luck.

Headlights flashing at blinker speed


Flickering headlights can get you a ticket to the policeman's ball, but more importantly, they may indicate trouble inside your car. This problem can result from many potential causes, but whatever the reason, you must identify and address it before your lights go out altogether.

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.

Left blinker stays on when light are on then when


If it has a combination switch,headlights,wipers,turn signal all on one lever,then it is the problem.Unless the bulb in that signal light is bad,the filiment in the bulb can melt down and cause a back feed.Try changing that one bulb first.
