Go under the dash on the drivers side, and locate the two flasher stat units. These are small round aluminum 'cans'. They plug in, and have flat blades on the bottom. (You of course won't see these flat terminal blades until you unplug them)

One is for the turn signals. One is for the four way flashers. I can't tell you which one is which.

Past this point, check all the grounds for the turn signals. The wiring harness at the front will have one, or two leads, (Wires), coming out that bolt directly to metal. Either sheet metal for the car, or to the frame. These leads have flat, round terminal ends on them, with a hole in the middle of the terminal.

The lead's terminal end bolts can work loose causing a bad ground, and/or, there could be corrosion in-between the terminal end, and the area of metal it bolts to. If so, use sandpaper, and clean the terminal end, plus the area of metal it bolts to.

There are ground leads, (Or lead), that come out of the rear wiring harness also. Check these.

Still no?
Then your turn signal bulb sockets have corrosion in them. This causes a bad ground.

You may be able to use a rolled up piece of sandpaper, and clean the socket.
(Also touch up the lead, {LED. As in the metal lead}, contact point in the middle of the socket. This is for the Positive connection, but it doesn't hurt to clean it while you're there.

After this is the turn signal switch in the steering column.
(My money is on a bad flasher unit)

Left front signal light want work


It sounds like one of two things. One the light may be burnt out. If you have not already checked it, look in your owners manual for how to access the bulb. You can take the turn signal bulb that does work, into the socket and see if the problem rests with the bulb or the wiring. If the bulb looks fine, check your fuses if you have not done so already. If you do not know which fuses, or where, control your turn signal, look in your owners manual. You may need to check more than one fuse as the light may be protected by muiltiple fuses doing different jobs. If all seems fine here and the light still wont work, check all the wires that lead to the light. Also check to see if there is some corrosion or rust in the bulb socket. That might affect the bult as well.

The turn signals on my 2001 pontiac formula firebird are not blinking. When I turn them on, they just stay lit. The bulbs burned out yesterday and I replaced them with 3057 Sylvania brand bulbs. The lights...


You have two separate flasher devices on your car. One operates the flashers, and the other, usually located near the fuse area, operates the turn signals. A trip to your local Autozone or Advance Auto Parts, or for that matter most reputable parts house will give the exact location of turnsignal flasher, and they can supply a new one.

1998 chevy truck tail light an panel light popin fuse,s i checked all wiring in rear no damage to wiring bought an change 3 way bulb holder. still same prob, don,t no were to go next Keith


Somtimes the bulbs get a dead short in them even though they look OK. Install new bulbs or remove all bulbs on this circuit and reinstall one at a time to see if fuse pops. I had this problem with signal lights on 95 chevy 1500 and turned out the back up bulbs were on the same circuit. Bad back up bulb so once truck was in reverse it blew the fuse and then the signals did not work. Cheap enough to be worth a shot.
