Check the lamp sockets and housings for water, it sounds like you have a short circuit between the park and signal lamps, I would suspect it is in one of the right hand side lights, remove the bulbs and clean out the sockets, check for corrosion inside the socket, especially at the base where the bulb get ist power. Check the condition of the wires, look for exopsed wires.

Hope this is of some help.

Check for a bad ground or loose ground. I had a very similar problem and found a loose ground inside the engine compartment that was loose.

1996 3500 sierra left signal causes all lights to flash


Well, you're dealing with a short. If the right turn signal only works the right side bulbs, you know you're issue must be in the switch. The only way left turn signal would light the right side, but the right signal would not light the left is if you added a diode, which I doubt is the case. So the switch itself is suspect. That or a wiring issue. If you just bought the truck, and this is an existing issue I'd suspect wiring. If it just started doing this I'd suspect the switch.


I would check to make sure someone didn't monkey with the wires and switch the left turn signal with the hazard lights or something (do your hazard lights happen to flash only the left turn signals?). If it has or had an aftermarket alarm you need to check their work and see what may be screwed up. Alarm systems often tap into the parking lights, which will look like all 4 turn signals, but are actually dimmer filaments. Flashing the parking lights would actually make your radio flash too, so I'm kind of leaning this way. Can't say for sure on limited information though.

My left front blinker flashes quickly. - The left


Check for power at the socket. If there is no power I would suspect the flasher relay wich supplies power to each bulb individually after it gets the right or left signal from the switch.

Where is the flasher relay unit


1ST double check that all the bulbs for the pass. side turn signals are working. if even one is out it can make the blinker not "blink". so compare the pass. side lights to the driv. side to make sure u did not miss something. NEXT,if thats not the problem, then u can locate the flasher by 1ST looking in the fuse box(probably inside the glove box or under the drivers side dash) theres a good chance it might not be there(years ago every car had the flasher in the fuse box) SO TURN ON THE DRIVERS SIDE BLINKER (key on) and LISTEN OR FEEL UNDER THE DASH FOR THE FLASHERS NOISE--LOOK NEAR THE STEERING COLUMN,BRAKE PEDAL, EVEN BEHIND THE ASH TRAY!! hope this helps you!

Saturn 2002 VUE Turn Signal not working properly.


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

Right read blinker/break light dont work, turn signal blinks rapidly


It's the bulb. There are two filliments in the bulb. One is for when you turn your lights on and the other is for breaking and blinker flashing. When the break filliment goes bad it causes the blinker to flash very rapidly. 100% the bulb. Change it and all will be good again. P.S. if it were a fuse none of the break lights or blinkers would work.
