There is a little electric timer which is a round thing about the size of a quarter and about half an inch deep with two plugs on them underneath the dash board, you find it by following the 3 or 4 clicks you hear. Try unplugging it and replacing it.

SOURCE: Left Turn Signal Rapidly Blinks

Sounds to me like a bad ground. When the current can't complete through a ground circit it feeds back through the elements ancd can cause all sorts of wierd syptoms.

The fast blink itself can be casued by a burnt out bulb I would check that first.

Then I would check the trailter harness if there is one and unpluch any harness that may be plugged into it. also check each bulb to see if it is seated well. you may be able to see if there is corrorsionaround the bulb terminals at this time is so yo may need to replace the light assembly. Also you could look for any spot where maybe someone in the past tried to tie into the harness to hook up additional lights etc. this may allo moisture in and corroded to the point the wire is "open"

Can a turn signel work for about 15 seconds and then stop? or could it be the relay?


the flasher unit is probably worn out.there is a bi-metalic metal strip that gets tired and won`t expand and contract making the clicking noise you hear when the signals are in use.it stops expanding and contracting causing the flashers to stop working.change the flasher unit but make sure you changing the one for the signal flasher and not the hazards flasher as they look the same.to know which one turn on the hazards and look for the other flasher that is not making a noise as this will be the one for the signals.

2003 ford explorer - sometimes the turn signals work correctly. Other times they may flash 3-4 times then stop; however, turn signal switch is still engaged. When they stop working hazard flasher are...


This is most likely going to be an issue with a relay. The relay on the fords that is tied into the blinker module can go bad is it gets wet or over loaded. Are there any after market things added to your vehichle? This can also be caused by overloading part of your ECU if you have after market headlights, or headlights that carry too high a load. When it blinks for 3-4 times and stops, does it blink faster than normal? This can be a sign of a false connection to the light itself. Such as having the wrong bulb in for the blinker.

Turn signal keeps clicking randomly Pontiac grand am 2002


This can either be caused by the hazard switch located above the radio or the turn signal /multfunction switch on the steering column.When it is doing this try wiggling the turn signal switch and see if it stops. If it does stop the issue is most likely in the turn signal switch.

See if one or the other bulb is out when it stops blinking. If yes, change that bulb. If no, replace signal flasher.
