Could be a host of issues, but would look at:
- bulbs - which you've indicated are good;
- fuses - ensure you identify the correct ones using the panel map;
- bulb socket - ensure it's free of corrosion and test that it is getting power;
- socket wire - you'll have tested power "in" the socket, now test for power "before" the socket - need to know if the socket itself is bad;
- the signal switch (http://troubleshootmyvehicle.com/gm/4.3L-5.0L-5.7L/how-to-test-the-turn-signal-switch-1)
- if none of these reveal the issue, I believe you're left with the body control module (BCM) - this will require replacement and reprogramming.

Good luck.

SOURCE: Right rear turn signal flashes fast with head lights on.

You have a bad ground at the right rear tail light assembly

Many times the ground is right there at the light. Follow the wire from the bulb base and see where it goes. Try tightening the fixture first

good luck

SOURCE: procedure to change turn signal light bulb on a

Remove 3 or 4 of the plastic pins holding the inner fender. They are located around the lip of the fender opening. The pins are removed by pulling the center cap of the pin straight out about an 1/8" and then wiggle and pull the whole pin out.
Pull the inner fender down and back.
Reach your arm in and grab the socket and squeeze the locking tab.
Rotate the socket counter-clockwise less than a quarter turn, and pull straight back.
Reach your other hand in and remove the bulb by pulling it straight out of the socket. It takes a 3157 bulb

Blinker wont click/blink


If the right side works correctly than you have a burnt out bulb on the left side. Compare the bulbs that are blinking on the right side to the bulbs that are not blinking on the left side. You should be able to figure out what bulb is not working.

2008 Chevy Cobalt front right turn signal is not working. Back right signal blinks fast. Left signals work just fine. I tried replacing the bulb and it did not work. Do I need to replace the...


No - headlight ok.
The reason that the Right turn signal blinks fast is that there is half the normal load (resistance)
on the right side, since the Right front turn signal isn't working.
Since you replaced the Right front turn signal bulb, your problem lies in the bulb socket or
the wiring to the socket.
(1) try cleaning out the socket - there's probably a contact problem in the socket. You
may need to squeeze the contacts together to provide good contact to the socket contact.
(2) if contacts inside the socket are ok, try back-probing the socket - to make sure that the
socket is getting 12V DC to light the bulb. Replacing a bulb socket is easy, and commonly done.
Any auto parts dtore should be able to sell you a new socket - its just a matter of cutting out the
old one, and then splicing in the new one. Most shops will use small wire nuts, buried under several
wraps of E-tape (electrical tape).
(3) if bulb AND socket ok, you have the worst problem known to man - a wiring fault. In this case,
you'll want to run a new wire from the flasher module (under the dashboard) to the turn signal.

Hello Did you check both front and rear? Did you compare the working side (right) to the left side? Some applications have more than one bulb. Hope this helps

How do I fix my left blinker? light still works but it sticks instead of blinks


What you speak of as to the left blinker doesn't flash, yet the instrument cluster shows the green arrow (to the left), and yet that and the left turn signal lights do not flash, appears to be a simple burned out bulb. If one of your left turn signal bulbs are burnt out, then the #552 Flasher Unit in your fuse box is NOT the cause. It's the "Amperage" not being correct to the flasher unit. Place the parking brake on and start your vehicle. Put the left turn signal on and check to see ALL the bulbs are illuminated for the left turn signal. If you find one bulb that is not illuminated, then replace the bulb. It should be an 1157 bulb, but in the front it could be a 1157 Amber bulb dependent on whether your turn signal lens is clear or yellow.

If you still have difficulty finding the dead bulb, turn on the right turn signal and see which bulbs are illuminated and this will give you an idea as to which bulb on the left side isn't working, or turn on your Emergency Flashers which will turn on both the left and right side lamps and see which bulb is not lit up.

I hope this Helps,

Left turn signal is blinking fast,where is the relay located at?


You did not say if the right signal blinks ok or not. Assuming it blinks like the left, the best way to find the blinker is to leave the engine off but the key switch on and turn your blinker on. Now LISTEN and you should hear the clicking. If the right side blinker is normal then you may have a bad turn signal bulb or ground to one of the signal bulbs. An easy way to check your turn signal bulbs is to turn on your emergency flashers and look at the bulbs, they all should blink at the same time and with the same brightness. Good Luck
