Question about 2002 Saturn VUE
When I'm driving and my lights are off, both turn signals are off. When I turn right, everything works perfectly, however when I turn left, my inside dashboard sort of flashes while the inside left blinker flashes, and all the lights on the outside of the car (including headlights) blink in time with the left blinker. It's sort of dim, but at night it's pretty obvious. When I turn my headlights on, the left blinker is always on (inside the car, and outside), and when I turn on my left blinker, nothing happens. Right blinker still works perfectly. Any idea what's going on here? By the way, when it rains, it usually fixes itself for the next few days, and I can use my blinkers normally. What should I do to fix this problem?
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

Had the exact same issue with my 2005 Vue, this had nothing to do with bad bulbs or ground...turned out that the battery was getting weak and couldn't handle running the radio, air, lights at the same time especially if the car was not running. Factory battery was only 550 amps... I replaced with a new 650 amps. It fixed the blinker and dashboard flashing problem.
