Harzards flash turn signals dont

Hazards have a different flasher than the turn signals.
Make sure both front and rear turn signal bulbs are good. If one is burned out, that side might flash funny or not at all. If bulbs are good, then it could be the flasher.
Usually the turn signal flasher is a small module about an inch or two in size, and located near the fuses or it might be under the dash near the steering column hanging by a couple of wires. Pull it out, bring to a car parts place to get a replacement, and plug it back in.

I have sourced out all fuses and bulbs, yet continue to have a rapid right turn signal. I don't know where else to look. help?

replace the right rear bulb. the quick flashing indicates a bad bulb. it could be a wiring problem to the rear for the signal light that you will have to check out starting at the socket and working forward.

Fast flashing turn signals

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.

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.

The right turn signal comes on but intermittently it makes long duration of blinks. Sometimes both the right front and right rear will be energized in the on position but will not blink at all. We have...

You say it's the right turn signal that is malfunctioning. If the left works correctly, then the problem is most likely NOT the flasher unit. That unit provides the flash for both left and right signals. I think that flasher unit is mounted on your steering column, down under the dash. It will probably be an aluminum cylinder, but may be a rectangular black plastic block. Before you change the flasher unit, I'd suggest checking the front and rear turn signal light bulbs. On the front, those are the parking light bulbs, and on the rear are the stop light bulbs. You may have a poor connection, probably from corrosion, or the bulb is very nearly burned out completely. Good luck.

Turn signal doesnt flash when turned on???

If your turn signal indicator is coming on but won't flash, it is caused by one of two things.
  1. A burned out bulb (or a bad circuit to the bulb)
Check ALL the bulbs. Does it flash in one direction and not the other? The side that is not flashing will have a bulb that is not working. It may be a front bulb or a rear bulb, so check them all. Also make sure that there are the same number of bulbs illuminating on both sides. Some cars have 2 turn signal bulbs on each side in the rear. At first glance it may look like they are all working, then when you look closer you may find that only one bulb is illuminating on one side while there are two on the other.

2. If both sides are malfunctioning and you are certain that all the bulbs that are supposed to light with the turn signals are working, then replace your flasher unit.

1998 Buick Century Signal Issue

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.
