If you just put one bulb in and put it in reverse does the bulb light?

Turn signal lights flashing to quickly


Sounds more like a bad bulb socket. The bulbs provide a load which causes them to blink slowly. If just one bulb becomes disconnected the load changes and so does the flash rate. I would suspect that you have a bulb that is coming loose in the socket periodically thereby changing the load. Many vehicles us multiple bulbs in the rear...ex. my 04 grand am does the exact same thing. It uses 2 bulbs per tail light. One of the bulb sockets on the drivers side sometimes loses connection and they flash really fast (the other bulb flashes...just 1 of the two quits). In my car i need to replace the tail light assembly.

Both signal lights blink fast


Fast blinking is an indication that one of the bulbs has burned out. The lack of resistance in the circuit causes the blinker to blink faster. Recheck your bulbs.

IF this happens after replacing standard bulbs with LED bulbs, you need to add a resistor at each socket to resolve the problem.

1st try a different bulb, make sure its a working bulb, If the test light is blinking & u have a good ground it has to be the connection from the bulb to socket.

95 Mazda 323 Hatchback - front left turn signal works sometimes. When not working, indicator blinks fast and rear left signal light blinks quickly as well. I was told it was the bulb but how can that


Could be a faulty socket too. The flasher "blinks" slow when all lights are functioning. A short to ground, to another circuit, or an open circuit can make the flasher blink fast.

2002 Sunfire SE: rear signal light


Turn the signal light on to the right and probe the contacts in the bulb socket with a test light to see if the power is there,your test light should blink,the other contact in the socket is the parking lights and tail light.
if no power at contacts probe the wire it's self where it enters the socket for power.if you have it there the socket is faulty.

My right turning signal sometimes doesnt work. The light in the dash stays on, but doesnt flash. When this happens the front light stays on when the signal is applied, but the back one doent work. Ive...


  1. Turn 4 way (hazard) lights on check to see that all lights are flashing if rear is not flashing suspect bad ground since 4way usually goes through brake light.
  2. If everything flashes you may have a bad flasher relay find it replace it.
  3. If light still will not flash check light socket by removing bulb & looking for burnt melted contacts or plastic. You find any of these problems consider replacing socket.
  4. If you do not find any problems with socket use a cheap test prob connect alligator clip to metal ground near socket with bulb out turn on blinker carefully touch each contact inside socket when you find the right contact prob should light up & blink.
  5. If you cannot get prob to blink move prob ground to new location do step 4 again.
  6. If you still get no blink start probing wires coming into socket until prob lights working away from socket.
  7. Ground is on the side of the socket when you look in it.
