Question about 2000 Saturn SL

Open Question

Electrical When very damp or raining all of my lights blink on and off rapidly. What causes this? I am afraid I will get stopped by law enforcement if I am driving in the dark and all my lights flash on and off. Have had 2 garages look for a solution and neither could find anything. Can you help?

    When rains heavily and driving vehicle starts to gerk and engine lights starts to blink.

    The most likely cause is a broken seal, usually around the windshield, which is allowing water to leak into the electrical components under the dash.

    Left passenger window down in rain and now it wont go up. 2004 Subaru Forester

    Same thing happened to 2002 Suburban and it turned out to be the cables which are connected the window regulator (motor), assuming you have power windows. You will need to remove the panel on the passenger side door to determine the cause. It could be one of three things, the cables, the regulator, or a broken fuse or wire stopping the electrical current...this is pretty rare especially if this is the only window which is not operating.

    How do i fix a rough running after warming up in wet weather

    I don't really know the answer, however, I would like to share my story with you, in case this happens to be the case with you. My older Volvo had all kinds of problems but only when warm and when it was wet outside. I had a mechanic that was throwing parts at it until my dad told me to go to an electrical specialist. He found out that the ground to the chasis of the car was not good, and in fact, when it was hot, it actually got red hot. The water aggravates electrical shorts. A bad ground is more common than most people think.

    I hope that helps.

    Electrical problem maybe

    I have seen cars with lights full of rainwater. Check all lights for evidence of getting wet, dirt may be inside. Once you find a suspect, unplug it and go through a carwash. Once you are sure, change the light fixture.

    When I have my headlights on my turn signal blinks rapidly and when I hit my brakes the turn signal stops altogether. Tonight I went out and I have no reverse lights when I hit the turn signal, both sides...

    check the ground on the signal lamp. If the signal blinks rapidly that indicates an overload condition. a bad conection can cause and overload as the circuit tries to overcome the unkown resistance.

    My left & right indicator does not work & does not blink when it's on.. how do i fix it?

    There could be several things that will cause your blinkers to stop working. Most will have to be diagnosed by a QUALIFIED automotive electrical shop but there is one thing you can try first. Step one is to turn your blinker stalk rapidly between right and left turn. Don't damage anything, just go back and forth several times real fast. Next, turn your emergency flashers on and off. Rapidly, like you did with the turn signal stalk. Again, don't damage anything, just do it as rapidly as you can, several times. What you are trying to do is clean the contacts inside the switches. Those two circuits work together to operate the turn signal lights and the emergency flashers are rarely, if ever, used and the contacts get a little corroded.

    Left Turn Signal Rapidly Blinks

    Sounds to me like a bad ground. When the current can't complete through a ground circit it feeds back through the elements ancd can cause all sorts of wierd syptoms.

    The fast blink itself can be casued by a burnt out bulb I would check that first.

    Then I would check the trailter harness if there is one and unpluch any harness that may be plugged into it. also check each bulb to see if it is seated well. you may be able to see if there is corrorsionaround the bulb terminals at this time is so yo may need to replace the light assembly. Also you could look for any spot where maybe someone in the past tried to tie into the harness to hook up additional lights etc. this may allo moisture in and corroded to the point the wire is "open"
