My car is more modern 04 but I had a similar problem. Solution to mine was replacing ur turn/tail lights. Check the actual plug it could have corroded terminals. For whatever reason it was causing the indicator to dim so much it stopped working when Lights were turned on.

I have a 2006 Honda Odyssey Touring. 3.5L V6. When I turn my headlights on, the left turning indicator light comes on inside and the turn signals won't work. When I turn my lights off, the turn signals...


Your headlight switch is shorting to you blinker switch or vise versa. This effects the interior lights because the dimmer switch is wired with the headlight switch. Both switches will need to be rewired. For a car that's less than 10 years old that is ridiculous. You could try to lodge a complaint with Honda. Most cars don't have issues like that for at least 20 years. So unless you've been driving through the arctic or have 500,000 miles you should not be impressed.

1998 Dodge Durango, Headlights on, left turn sig on, but will not work. Turn headlights off, left turn signal works, but dash and radio lights fash to?


The headlight and turn signal are on two different switches and two different circuits. The main thing they both share is a ground connection.
I would check the ground and sockets for both the headlight and turn signal next.

Front left turn signal doesnt work


The turn signal circuit is different from the parking lights. So the headlights would not be involved.
You should have power on one side of the bulb for parking lights and the other for turn signals.
If you have no power for the turn signal circuit, I would look at the turn signal switch. It powers each bulb separately.

Left turn signal pops fuse on infiniti


Check front and rear lights to see if the wiring is arcing to the turn signal on the left side of the car. This is the best guess as it's simply a wiring problem and nothing else, as there is too much current being forced through the turn signal when the headlights are on. Headlights draw much higher current than the intermittant turn signals and therefore pops the fuse.

Driver side signals only work when headlights are OFF


What may have happened is either the headlights wiring or the parking lights wiring somewhere along the wiring fused to the left turn signals wiring. Depending on if the turn signals go on when you put the parking lights on or the headlights on.

If the signals come on when you turn on the headlights than you only need to locate the light green wire that comes off the left turn signal harness.

Next follow that wire the entire way back to the firewall looking for another wire fused to that wire as you go.

If there are no signs of this you need to continue looking on the other side of the firewall all the way back to the turn signal and hazard flasher unit which is a black box that connects to a black harness located next to a grey harness behind the knee bolster.

But if the signals come on when you turn on the parking lights than you will also need to check the wiring from the rear left signal and follow that light green wire all the way back to the turn signal and hazard flasher unit.

This should fix your problem, but if not than your problem may lay within the the wiring between the turn signal/hazard switches and the turn signal and hazard flasher unit.

Also you may have a burnt circuit in the junction block. This block is where the light green from the rear left signal and front left signal meet. Don't have a description but if you cannot find it let me know and I will go out to the yard and look myself and let you know.

Driver's headlight is dim; wipers only work if headlight is off


Sounds like the jolt from the barrier has caused a bad ground to occur. Look for a bad ground wire around the left headlamp in or around the headlight bucket.
Tighten or replace the bad ground wire. A poor contact will cause the headlight to light dimly.
