Question about 1995 Toyota 4Runner

Turn signal bulb fast

My turn signal keeps going out. I know it is not the bulb because whenever I go to look at it all I have to do is push the bulb back in and then it begins to work. After driving for a while though it stops working again. What should I do?

Problem is there at the bulb, not the bulb itself, but the seating of the bulb in the light socket. The base of the bulb has two small tangs on it to keep it secure in the socket. You push the bulb in, and then turn it clockwise just a small amount for the tangs to catch in slots. Then the bulb cannot be pulled out of the socket without turning it back counterclockwise just a bit. If the bulb seats but still doesn't make good contact in the socket, the problem is the socket.
The base of the bulb has a button like contact point on it. That button contacts a similar button in the socket base. The buttons are electrical contact points. Your bulb and socket is not keeping the contact points together.

SOURCE: Why taillights will not work when I turn my lights

Tail lights and brake lights are two seperate things . There are different bulbs for each. When you put your lights on does the front parK lights com on ? Usually the are on the same circuit as the tail lights. Check for fuse first.

Passenger side front turn signal/DRL do not work.


Dear Alex,
The problem is in the bulb, or the socket, or the wiring to these.
Whenever a turn signal flashes fast, know that one of the bulbs is not working.
You have already identified the problem as being the front one. Problem could be the hot wire, or the ground wire, or the ground connection to this bulb.
Start by taking a tester to the hot wire, and see if it is receiving electrical impulses when the turn signal is on.
( It probably is, unless the car has been in a wreck and has been improperly repaired.)
Then check the socket or the wires to is and see if the bulb is grounded.
I suspect the ground is defective, and either a new socket or a repair to the ground wire should fix you rights up.
God bless your efforts.

My left turn signal was flashing fast. I checked bulb in back left. Turn signal good but bulb below it was out. I changed that one but turn signal still flashing fast. all other bulbs look good. ??


If the front and rear bulbs flash fast also, replace the hazard switch or you could live with it. As they are working. If one doesn't work, check grounds. I just run a new ground, much easier than cutting open the harness to find the break.

The turning signal sound is fast on passenger


It is a burned out bulb on the passenger side - turn on the left signal so you will know where to look for the bulb. Then turn on the right side and find the blown out bulb and replace it.

Turn signals are blinking fast and the front signals don't blink


The bulb sockets are melted (not the bulb) - go to the junk yard and pick up a couple and keep a couple in your glove box - Have the same problem.

Left turn signal start normal then gets faster.


First thing to look for is a bulb that's not working. Most cars use this feature to let you know when a light is not working. Try this: While the left flasher is going fast, check to make sure ALL the lights are working as there may be more than two. Use the right signal as a reference to check how many there are that SHOULD be working.

If this problem comes and goes, there is most likely a bad connection between bulb and socket and if so, unplugging/replugging the bulb should fix it. There are two bulb types: push-in and push-twist-pull.

Feedback always welcome, and don't forget to vote!
