Think its coincidence, but sounds like you have a blow fuse, am I correct at thinking you have to put your foot on the brake to get the vehicle out of park? The park lock is operated on the same circuit as the brake lights, the indicators are also on the same circuit, just a thought, worth a try. Good Luck.

SOURCE: Blinkers stopped working

I have a 1994 F150 and the blinkers and E Flashers were out. I bought some flashers from NAPA and put them in with no effect. I noticed my E Flashers were still on from before when I was trying to switch them on. Turned the E flasher switch to the off positiion and the trun signals with the new Flasher are working. I thought I had another flasher spot around the back of the fuse box but didn't have time to look at it yet, so my E Flashers are still not working.

My turn signals won't work with the E flasher on. ??? Hopefully just that, the Flasher around the back.

SOURCE: no turn signals but flashers work

You may have two relays one for hazards and one for turn indicators.

SOURCE: Turn signals not working.All bulbs are good,no

The emergency flasher and the turn signal flasher are two separate items. You could have a defective T/S flasher.

Could smell a burnt wire smell (maybe belt) and lost AC. Was told that I need a AC Compressor kit. Was told that you can't bypass it. Is this true?


because of the way the belt is routed the ac compressor can not be bypassed by using a smaller belt. So that leaves you with 2 options. 1. replace the a/c compressor and enjoy the benefits of a/c during the hottest days of summer. 2. remove the a/c compressor and install a bypass pulley. option one gives the most benefit for the dollar and is also the most reliable repair. option 2 is not as sound of a repair, can be installed incorrectly, has a higher probability of failure, costs less, and makes you rely on open windows to cool off.

Can we fix the heater and defrost in a 2001 Isuzu Rodeo LS without the AC compressor


You may be able to remove compressor and purchase a pulley with an arm that atttaches to the block in place of compressor. Or remove compressor altogether and install a shorter serpentine belt. Hope this has been of some help.

My a/c pump is going out and I want to bypass it.


If you don't have the AC turned on the clutch in the compressor just free spins. If the clutch is going out on the compressor then you will need to remove the belt from it and either get the belt for your motor with no AC or find a smaller belt that will work. The main issue you will run into is if that is run by a serpentine belt in which case there will be no option but to repair the problem. TO make sure the AC is not kicking in disconnect the electrical plug from the compressor in the engine compartment.

When the engine is not running the belt is not turning the ac compressor which will not blow cold air unless ac pump is running so engine has to be running
