Left bleaker and break light not working. Turn signal works bleaks faster than right side.


Has the vehicle been in an accident on the left rear side. First check the bulb to be sure it is not defective, trade it out with the side that works properly to test. If the bulb works well then My thought are you may have a shorted wire. The turn signal flasher works by heat build up within the flasher the heat is caused by the load of the bulbs, the load heats the metal spring causing it to open the circuit then as quickly as it cools down the circuit closes again lighting the bulbs.
There is also a possibility of a defect in the turn signal mechanism on the steering column. The turn signal switch on many models does three different things on many models that use the same bulb element / or bulb for brake and turn on rear of vehicle. It controls the circuit for brake light by sending power both left and right side rear when turn signal is in neutral position then when turn signal is in left turn the switch cancels brake light power to left side rear and supplies flasher power to left side while maintaining brake light supply to the right side rear, and so on opposite when the right turn is chosen on turn signal switch. The turn signal indicators on the dash normally run off the same circuit as front turn signal bulb only which is also controlled by turn signal switch. Front has turn signals but no brake light.
I think there is an additional load on the left side rear turn circuit and it could be either a wire that is shorted or the turn signal switch if the same bulb element is used for both functions.
Often times if trailer lighting is connected the flasher will also blink a little faster because of the extra load of additional bulbs.

TURN SIGNALS


Hi

Did you check the fuses for the turn lights? Do the
parking lights work? If the parking lights work then you probably have a
problem either in the switch or in turn signal module thing.
The burned out bulb is what might be causing it not to blink... if one bulb is burned out you gotta replace it, make no difference if front or back,the left blinker will not work if the left front or rear bulb is bad.
same with the right side. if the front right or rear right turn signal
light is burned out it will not work.....get replacing the bulbs.Hope this solves your problem.Please rate me if my solution helped you.

Regards,

2002 dodge durango left turn signal works right turn signal does not


have you checked the bulbs front and back. to see if they work, bulb check. then it sounds like you might have a bad signal flasher that only works the left side and not the right side. or if a bulb at the front or the rear gets bright but not the opposite bulb on the same side then you may just have a bad bulb or socket or power to the socket when doing the bulb check.

Kia turn signal works but blinks fast on right side when parking lights are on


turn on park lights and signal on right side and take a good look at the front and rear light , see if one is dimmer than the other this may be due to a bad ground and when the park lights are on and drawing more power it also needs better ground, check the sockets front and rear try wiggling the bulb to see which one is causing the problem

Right front turn signal lights up but doesn't flash. rest of turn signals flash but right side rear flashes fast. Hazards work except same right front turn signal.


This is a know issue with the G5. Its likely the BCM (Body Control Module. If you replaced the front bulb and it doesn't resolve, check the "receptacle" where the bulb plugs in and see if there are issues there, an easy way to confirm, is to remove and unplug the headlight assembly from the opposite side and plug it in to the "non-working" side. If it still doesn't work, its the BCM. The BCM is vehicle specific, so you will have to get a replacement and take the new part and your vehicle to your dealership to get reprogrammed. You can't program it yourself. The part # is: 216171 and sells for about $180 and dealers charge between $50 and $100 to reprogram. Best of Luck

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.
