Most likely the turn signal flasher relay has failed, replace it.

If turn signals do not operate on either side, the issue is with the flasher unit, located under the dash to the right of the steering column.

Both brake lights not working,but top works?


Have you checked the bulbs? I have had them blow at the same time.

Tip

Both Lower Brake Lights Not Working


Check Brake Light Bulbs: All cars have three brake light bulbs that create the brake light illumination affect. If the lower two bulbs fail no lower brake light operation will occur. I know what you're thinking, you might say two brake lights at once? But in reality one brake light went out at a time and you did not notice. People only tend to notice something when they almost run into the back of your car to help persuade them to inform you the brake lights aren't working. Remove either of the brake light bulbs to confirm the bulb is ok or burned. After the bulb has been removed inspect the filament and replace if failed. If the brake light bulbs are ok continue to the next step.

Checking the Turn Signal Switch: Most American cars are designed to have the brake light switch wiring intergraded into the turn signal switch. Because the brake light bulb and the turn signal bulb are one and the same the turn signal switch interrupts the brake light circuit and installs the blinker signal circuit when the turn signal switch is activated. If this switch fails it will not allow the brake light signal through to the brake light wiring. To test for this condition a car repair manual is needed to test incoming and outgoing electrical current. If brake light switch power is present at the turn signal switch but not at any outgoing brake light wires the turn signal switch has probably failed.

Check the front turn signal bulbs. This will affect the resistance in the circuit and cause the working light to flash at a much faster rate.

Both my right & left turn signals aren't working but hazards are


If you can locate the hazrd flasher unit under the dash on the drivers side, the turn flasher unit should be right beside it and looks the same. Unplug and switch the 2 flashers and see if the turn signals work. The flasher unit is a silver and round. they are usually close to the stering colum. Let me know if that helps.

Front driver turn signal quit. changed bulb, worked for short time, then quit. bulb OK. passenger side quit 1-2 months later. bulb OK. neither front emergency flasher work. automatic daytime front lights...


Check for head light (daytime)relay to be bad,this might have to do with the turn signals also,if the turn signals on this car,also have running lights in them,If this relay is not bad,replace the body control module.
