Don't know this car specifically, but probably the socket will turn out from the back. Get under the car and look up.

SOURCE: Turn signals flashing rapidly

This fast flash is caused by a burnt out bulb in the front or rear.

SOURCE: I need to replace a foglamp bulb right side.I have

Typically the fog lamp is located in the front bumper assembly. It's usually fairly easy to access and replace these.

Place the car is park, secure parking brake. Use a creeper to scoot under the front end of the car, look up into the bumper. Located the backside of the fog lamp holder. You would usually grab and twist counter clockwise about an inch, then pull straight out. Push in on the bulb while turning counter clockwise until it pulls out of the lamp holder.

These fog lamps usually have a little bit of cushioning grease in the socket. Do not remove the grease or connectivity problems will result with the new fog lamp. Push the new bulb in, turn clockwise until bulb stops turning, release hand pressure.

Installation is the reverse of removal.

Left turn flash rapidly but bulbs are ok


Most people miss the side marker bulbs. Check the right side again, notice all the bulbs that flash. Make sure the left side is flashing the same bulbs. If they are, the turn signal switch is bad. I personally would live with it. They are a pain to remove and are pricey.

2003 Jeep liberty right front turn signal


why skip RR lamp? what does IT DO? be like 1st 1st look.
dim, out, fast?

the rapid is talking to you
it means current is wrong,
shorted, or open lines. to the right.
its the wiring
if the bulbs are like 1157 brass base bulbs
why not replace them first , they can short inside,
asking online for guessing is silly, why listen to 10 examples for this.
but is cut wires.
shorted wires.
keep i mind the blinker asks funny for both opens and shorts
its a feature, that.
low current or too much.

the acid test is connect 2 TEST bulbs in parallel to the multi-function switch output right side,
blinks ok now, bingo bad lamps or bad wiring, from there to the right side.

if the hazard fails you never said????
if rigth front is dim or dead the bulb is blown or shorted
if new bulb there , then the wires are shorted.
to it.
the only help on line worth squat is how to test and use your meter.
you can, check for voltage
you can check continuity on that line (its just 1 wire)
and check for shorts on that wire to ground (lamps pulled right side to do that, lamps read 0 ohms cold)
look for collision damage RF? behind lamp sockets?
be first.
in my book.
looking is always first. sure.


I have your SM book open now, chapter 8w-50
the haz/blink module has just 2 pins, left and right out.
pin 3 on the module runs front and rear blinks, (a fact to know)
RF is BR/RD, brown -red stripe?
all comments USA on USA forum. USA car.
ok?

the right side lamp (sidemaker) only blinks turns if parks ARE oFF

Id try 2 new blinker lamps front and 1 rear.
that be first. or test the lamp on a battery , and no not get burned fingers hot wring a shorted lamp.

wish i knew
what rear did
and what both did on HAZ
out, dim or to fast.

Turn signal


A slow flash indicates that one of the signal bulbs has burned out. You need to check the turn signal bulbs as well as the marker lamp bulbs. The marker lamps on the the side of the vehicle.

How to replace passenger turn signal bulb


The side marker light must be removed in order to get at the turn signal light.
There are two screws holding the side marker light which is situated above the turn signal.
Open the hood.
Remove the phillips head screw at the top of the side marker light.
Using a long #2 Phillips screwdriver, remove the screw on the outside of the side marker light. This can be seen by looking between the lower side of the side marker light and the top side of the turn signal.
The side marker can be moved.
The turn signal has one screw on the top of the fixture that must be removed.
Slide out the turn signal fixture. There is a small feature on the lower front corner of the turn signal fixture that you must note to properly reinstall the turn signal.
In order to get to the bulb, rotate the bulb socket 1/4 turn CW or CCW. The bulb socket is loose.
The bulb is simply pressed into the socket.
Not sure of the type, but it can be found at your locale auto parts store.
The bulb is used in several places on the 1994 GC, so get apacket with two, if possible.
Assembly in reverse. Be careful not to overtighten the screws as they are replaced

LEFT TURN SINGNAL WONT FLASH


I don't think it would be the flasher since the right signals are still working. Check all your light bulbs including the side marker lights. They must all be working for the turn signal work. If you can't find a bad bulb, then go ahead and replace the flasher.

My left turn signal goes too fast when i want to make a left turn but my right turn signal is fine... how do i make the left one normal again?


Replace the burned out bulb. It is flashing fast to alert you that bulb is burnt out. Turn on the side that works properly & note all bulbs flashing in front, rear & side. Most likely there is at least 1 burnt out on the other side.

Right turn signal is not bliking


check and see if there is a burnt out bulb on that side... if not you need to replace the flasher relay... it's under the dash on the drivers side... as a stand alone relay or in your fuse box.
