If it does not flash it is most likely the bulb may look good but can be bad , take a test light for the socket and see if you test light blinks , if the headlights stay on look in your owners manual should be a light sensor on it so you can set it to shut them off ,

SOURCE: My driver side rear brake/turn

The circuit that the bulbs run off of splits. When the bulb is burnt or not seated right, in your case the driver side rear bulb, the circuit requires the current to go somewhere. Which is why the blinker is working twice as fast.

Make sure the bulb is seated properly. I used a Sylvain 3057 or 3057 LL (long life) when experiencing a similar problem and seemed to work fine. Some bulbs have a coating on the glass and the oil from our hands, especially if you eat the amount of beer nuts I do, will cause it to malfunction. Long shot, but you never know.

Good idea to check the cables running into the housing of the light as well. A lot of activity may have pulled something loose. Exhaust your efforts before taking it in, especially with electrical issues. It's something you need so they got you by the beer nuts!

Good Luck
JD

Right front side turn signal does not work replaced all bulbs and checked fuses headlight flashers work when hazards are on front to back except driverside turn signal ,in dash right stays solid left


I don't believe it would be a bad ground for just one light. It could be a wire, a socket connector, or the bulb socket itself. See if the wire has power at the socket when signaling left, with key on. If there is power, probably a bad socket or connector. If no power, check for power coming from flasher-the wire going to front left, or driver's side. If you have power from the flasher, but nothing at the socket, the wire has probably broken.
Good luck.

Sounds like a ground problem to me. Bulbs are not getting there ground to complete the circuit so they backfed through the other bulbs.

My front turn signals keep going out and when i changed the bulb the light doesnt flash it just stays on


Please check if you have the correct part number bulbs? The front and rear bulbs are dual filiment, one for the signal and the other smaller one is a running light. If the bulb you have are correct, does your 4 way flasher function work and or left turn signal work? If the remaining rear flash ok, then your flasher unit is OK. You can also check the bulb running light by turning on the headlights. You might have a faulty or incorrect bulb if it does not light up.

I just recently had he same problem with mine. I replaced the front right turn signal bulb, but after a week of it working correctly, my wife complained that the turn signal did a double time fast flash. I found the rear bulb signal/ brake bulb was out as well. So I decided to purchase a dual pack bulb set and replace both the rear brake/signal bulbs (bulb number 4135) Your auto part store person can look up the correct number for the bulb brand you choose for the van. Since all the bulbs are about the same age and wear, I would recommend replaceing all of yours. Good luck.

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.

Electrical problem


Find the ground wire on one of the lights and add another ground wire to a good clean metal surface and see if that fixes the problem. It defently sounds like a ground problem at one of the lights.
