Left turn signal will not turn off no matter what

I have almost the same problem,it is a huge headache .my blinker is stuck on my 98 eclipes, i think our problem is underneath the center console,it is a little black box my step father pointed out to me .it is making the clicking sound the blinker makes ,its almost to tight of a space to get your hand in and to look in . in my opinion i would take the cd player out so you have more room to work with.i think my dad said its called the blinker switch though.i hope this info helps you.

You probably need to look in the tube under the steering wheel to check the mechanical action of the turn signal switch. If this car has a steering wheel air-bag, then disconnect one terminal of the battery and let sit for 5 minutes to discharge the arming mechanism for the air bag. Look for screw holes under the wheel to release the air bag. Mark the steering post and wheel with matching points from a center punch to get the wheel back on centered properly. The clicking noise that you hear is normal when the signal is ON.

Were is the fuse for the right blinker in a 2003 gmc envoy


Hey Derrick,
I do not think the blinkers have a "right" and "left" fuse...Its usually a flasher/blinker relay.
Try replacing the bulbs.. make sure their sockets are clean and able to hold the bulbs tight. If you are not getting both right side blinkers to work and you know both bulbs are good, the switch in the column may be the culprit.

Short in electrical system?


when the radio is OFF sound comes out of the rear speakers when the blinkers are used ! There isn't a turn signal flasher on your vehicle ,( like most all newer vehicles ) It's done electroniclly by a control module . In the case of your vehicle , the BCM - body control module . It doesn't matter if the radio is off . All the Audible warnings come out of the radio speakers . Headlamps left on , key in ignition etc... You have no idea of the complexity of your vehicle , it's a rolling computer , with a serial data network for the modules to talk to each other , share info.
When the turn signal switch is placed in either the left or right position, a ground signal is completed from the turn signal switch to the BCM. When the hazard flasher switch is activated, a ground signal is completed from the turn signal/hazard switch to the BCM. The BCM then sends an ON-OFF voltage signal through the fuses to the appropriate turn signal and side repeater (export only) lamps or to all of the turn signal fuses for hazard operation.
Really don't think you have electrical short . Computer glitch maybe , radio problem . How ever , these system's are not for the untrained to mess with . Your best bet , the GMC dealer !

2010 land rover lr2, blinker won't shut off after making a turn, left or right doesn't matter, I hae to shut them off manually.


Could be turn signal switch in column, newer vehicle lik yours may have turn signals controlled by body control computer.
A good electrical shop or dealer should be able to diagnose.

Cant resolve a blinker issue, Tried the easy stuff.


The signal wire going to the right front has a splice for the dash indicator, a wire branching off from the turn wire and going to the dash. It sounds like that right signal wire is broken or lost a connection before it splices off to the dash, so the problem sounds like it is under the dash, either coming out of the turn signal switch to the flasher or from the flasher to that splice. You may need a multi-meter to check voltages on that wire at various places under the dash. Ascertain which color wire you need to concentrate on. Check for voltage on it with key on and right blinker on-voltmeter will spike to battery voltage, then fall to zero as the flasher breaks voltage continuously, if checked after the flasher. If checked when leaving the turn switch, it should be a continuous signal on that wire. Think you better find a wiring diagram to find the right wire to check. Good luck.

How do I fix my left blinker? light still works but it sticks instead of blinks


What you speak of as to the left blinker doesn't flash, yet the instrument cluster shows the green arrow (to the left), and yet that and the left turn signal lights do not flash, appears to be a simple burned out bulb. If one of your left turn signal bulbs are burnt out, then the #552 Flasher Unit in your fuse box is NOT the cause. It's the "Amperage" not being correct to the flasher unit. Place the parking brake on and start your vehicle. Put the left turn signal on and check to see ALL the bulbs are illuminated for the left turn signal. If you find one bulb that is not illuminated, then replace the bulb. It should be an 1157 bulb, but in the front it could be a 1157 Amber bulb dependent on whether your turn signal lens is clear or yellow.

If you still have difficulty finding the dead bulb, turn on the right turn signal and see which bulbs are illuminated and this will give you an idea as to which bulb on the left side isn't working, or turn on your Emergency Flashers which will turn on both the left and right side lamps and see which bulb is not lit up.

I hope this Helps,
