This is not my fix but it is the problem. My 2001 Ford Explorer sport trac left turn signal wasn't working. The flashed on the dash was flashing rapidly so I assumed bulb. Wrong. I tried all I knew to try. I finally broke down and took to ford dealership. $360 later I was told cheap part lots of labor. Ok I paid and was glad I could legally drive again. Problem. Two weeks later same problem. I took back to the dealership. ( Shawnee, Oklahoma ). I was told a different part but once again lots of labor and $360 again. I refused this time. What I found online is this is a common problem. Try changing the position of the tilt steering wheel. For my truck when I put it in the up position my turn signal worked properly. The tilt shorts the wire out. I plan to go talk to the dealership but not expecting much as they were not friendly or helpful to begin with. I hope everyone with this problem would report it as it is a Ford defect in many vehicles. It should be a recall

Sounds like the rear brake light bulbs are burnt out.
Try changing the left and right stop light bulbs.

I have a 2001 Oldsmobile Silhouette. When I turn on my left blinker all is fine until I press the break then the right blinker shows solid on dash and park assist lights flash. When I turn on right...


Your problem is either a bad bulb in the tail light/brake lights or your turn signal switch is bad. I'm more inclined to say that the problem is the turn signal switch and you need to replace it.

'96 cadillac eldorado left blinker blinks fast


Have you checked to see if you have a blinker out? If you do, then thats your problem. If not, check your blinker fuses. Hope this helps, James Booth.

Left blinker blinks faster than the right. which the back left blinker does not work and front left blinks really fast.Right blinker works normal?


Flasher relays relies on bulb wattage for the speed of the blink.
You probably just have a blown bulb in the left rear blinker.:)

Fast Blinker


Usually a fast turn signal means that there is a light out. You should probably check all of your lights, including back-up lights, and turn signals. If there is one out then replacing the burnt out bulb should fix the problem.

TURN SIGNAL BLINKS TO FAST RIGHT


The blinker usually blinks fast when a turn signal light is burnt or not contacting. Check the signal bulbs to see if they are contacting or in good condition. If that is not it. Try replacing the blinker under the dash.

Recentley my right rear blinker light went out I replaced it now brake or blinker is working front right blinks realy fast


The fast blinking means that the new bulb is not any good. Try putting in another bulb. If that does not take care of it, then it could be your blinker switch.
