Have you recently changed the bulb? If so, you may have replaced with a single element bulb instead of a twin element.

Did you turn the left turn signal on or are you saying it comes on just by hitting the brakes and doesn't turn off when you release the brakes?

SOURCE: Rear Left Light

Chances are the ground wire is frayed or partially broken. You could cut the black wire on the bulb socket, crimp a new wire onto the socket side of the cut, and ground that to a bolt in the engine bay. If the ground wire was frayed somewhere, this will likely fix the problem.

SOURCE: Both Break lights dont work, left turn signal dont

It could very well be the lever itself ... you could also have a ground... check the bulb socket themselves for corrosion this is a starting point

SOURCE: MY RIGHT TURN SIGNAL STAYS ON WHEN I HIT THE TURN

You have a burned out lamp, and the flasher is therefore not getting enough current to cause flashing.

SOURCE: Break lights, turn signals not

Without being there to actually do some checking, I'd take a look at the signal switch itself. (In the top of the column) First though, check the bulbs, as I have seen (but rarely) a filament in a bulb break and re-connect itself to the other leg of the circuit.

I have 2001 buick lesabre limited. The left turn signal light stays on constantly on my dash and flashes fast when signaling. I replaced all 4 turn signal lamps in front and still stays lit and fast.


Did you check and see if they were working? If side lights are part of the turn signal, blown bulbs there will cause this also. If one doesn't work, look at the plug. bend and clean the tabs inside it to contact the bulb. If a broken wire, they usually break at the plug. Check for power and ground at the plug.

Signal lights on dashboard


I would start at the left brake light. Check the bulb and wiring. Your brake light could be grounding through the blinker circuit.

When break pressed turn signal turns stays on and doesnt flash


My first guess would be a ground problem. The bulbs are mounted in plastic sockets and grounded to the car by a black wire. If one socket is not grounded it will try to ground thru a different socket.
I would check for voltage and ground on each socket in the back.

Jaguar xj6 break light cancels signal


Replace the turn signal switch. Bad contact inside causing a crossing of the circuits. When the turn signal is applied it should open the brake light circuit allowing for just the signal to work. Doesn't sound like the switch is doing it's job.

Brake light and turn signal light not working


Did the new lens come with new sockets? If not damage may have occured there that you cant see. only other possibilty is wiring damage in the rear that may be hard to see. The condition you describe is simple "backfeeding" if you look hard enough youll either find bad sockets or damaged wires close to the lens that took the hit. Hope this helped. Thanks

I had the same problem with my 2001. I found it was the multi function switch. Better known as your turn signal switch. I found that the hazard switch portion of it had shorted. replacement is fairly easy, aftermarket part is available, much cheaper than GM.
