You need to check your fuses if fuses are ok locate indicator relay and check it has a live and a good earth if so open the relay and you should see a bad joint inside if this is the case you can either solder it back up or sometimes they are burnt out and need to be replaced if the relay is ok check the hazard switch

Rear passenger flasher won't come on changed bulb and it still won't come on


Check for blown Turn signal fuse. A bad bulb is usually indicated by turn signal indicator light on the instrument panel staying on (No flash function). Also check the wiring harness on the chassis. ( left rear, usually close to bumper) Check the connector that feeds power to the rear lights for corrosion.

My rear turn signals are not working. front turn signals work rear parking lights work brake lights work


In the diagram for rear lamp, the top wires are voltage, the bottom black wire is ground. The brown wire on either side should be tail lamps, goes hot when you turn on the headlamp switch. The other top wire on either should be for turn signal. With everything turned on, is there voltage on that wire?
Because the front works and the rear don't, possible wiring circuit problem? The voltage for turn signals comes from bcm. The bcm knows when you turn on turn signal switch, either side, then the bcm sends voltage to turn signal lamp at the rear and front.

Could have connection issues at the BCM - body control module , lose ground . The BCM controls all the thing's your have problems with .
Turn Signal Lamps
When the turn signal switch is place in either the right or left turn position, the turn/hazard request circuit is pulled low, through a resistor. The body control module (BCM) uses the resistors to determine if the left or right turn signals have been requested. The BCM then supplies an ON-OFF voltage to the turn signal lamps and turn signal indicator on the selected side of the vehicle. The turn signals receive a ground at G101, G401, or G403.

When the ignition switch is turned to the ON position, the vacuum fluorescent (VF) display (radio) turns on at maximum brightness. When the park lamps are ON all incandescent back lighting turn ON at the dimming level indicated by the IP dimmer switch. At the same time all vacuum fluorescent (VF) displays dim to match the indicated dimming level. When the headlamp switch is placed in the PARK position, the park lamp supply voltage circuit provides an input to the body control module (BCM). The BCM then supplies voltage to the instrument panel dimmer switch through the instrument panel dimming lamps control circuit. The setting of the instrument panel dimmer switch determines the amount of voltage that the instrument panel dimmer switch supplies to the BCM through the instrument panel dimming lamps low reference circuit. The BCM then sends a pulse width modulated (PWM) voltage to all the interior lamps. All the vacuum florescent (VF) and incandescent back lighting lamps are provided a specific voltage and are then grounded. When the headlight switch is turned to the PARK or HEADLAMP position, all incandescent back lighting turn on at the dimming level indicated by the IP dimmer switch. When the IP dimmer switch is moved from MIN to MAX, all vacuum fluorescent (VF) displays, as well as all incandescent back lighting respond from Minimum intensity to maximum brightness in response to the IP dimmer switch.

Engine Coolant Indicator(s)
LOW COOLANT LEVEL
The IPC illuminates the low coolant warning indicator when any of the following occur:
• The BCM detects a low coolant level condition for at least 30 seconds. The IPC receives a class 2 message from the BCM requesting illumination.
• The IPC performs the displays test at the start of each ignition cycle. The indicator illuminates for approximately 3 seconds .

The thing to do first would be to hook up a factory or professional type scan tool an check for Instrument cluster or BCM DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes . Then checking connection 's at the BCM , testing power an grounds .

2010 chevy equinox right rear turn signal doesnt work, replaced bulb and still the same. front works, is there a fuse for the rear light and where is the fuse located.


RT/SIG fuse #11 15amp - I/P fuse box . Fuse Block - I/P
In the center of the instrument panel, beneath the right side of the radio, in back of the right side console access panel.
This fuse is power to the BCM , When you put on the right turn signal , this is a voltage signal to the BCM . With logic ( programming ) the BCM then controls the turn signal !
Turn Signal/Hazard Lamps
The body control module (BCM) is responsible for controlling the turn signals and hazard lamps. When the turn signal switch is placed in either the left turn or right turn position, the BCM receives a signal from the turn signal switch. The BCM then sends an on-off voltage signal to either the left or right turn signals and their instrument panel cluster (IPC) indicator. When the hazard switch is pressed, the BCM receives a signal from the hazard switch. The BCM then will send an on-off voltage signal to all the turn signal lamps. All the turn signal lamps will flash including both IPC turn signal indicators.
There could be a DTC- diagnostic trouble code stored in the BCM pointing to the problem ! I suggest you take your vehicle to the dealer or a ASE certified repair shop that has the diagnostic tools to find the problem . Just so you don't waste your money replacing parts that don't fix it.

I have Ford Explorer model 1998 but its indicator lights are not working meanwhile the hazzard lights are working


Your turn signal flasher is separate from the hazard flasher. Replace the turn flasher.

Both the turn signal flasher and the hazard warning flasher are mounted on the fuse panel on the truck. To gain access to the fuse panel, remove the cover from the lower edge of the instrument panel below the steering column. First remove the two fasteners from the lower edge of the cover. Then pull the cover downward until the spring clips disengage from the instrument panel.
The turn signal flasher unit is mounted on the front of the fuse panel, and the hazard warning flasher is mounted on the rear of the fuse panel.

What exactly do you mean by everything ese works?
Do you have directionals indicating on the instument panel?
do you have front signals and no rear or vice versa or do you not have any directionals and no emergency flashers?

If you do not have any type of flasher you need to replace the flasher relay in the fuse panel.
If you have emergency flashers and your front signal work but rear do not the primary culprit may be the integrated circuit board that are attached to the composite tail lenses. You can buy the circuit board portion seperate from the tail lense and at a cheaper rate than buying the whole unit. Dealers try to sell the unit as a whole so you might want to pursue other avenues first..
