Bad driver's side turn signal on a 1989 Buick Century

My left front turn signal isn't working, but it lights up when the parking lights are switched on. The bulb is fine and I get power through the wires. Is it the socket? Is it the switch? How do I replace either of them? Will I have to splice anything into the feed wires?

Turn signal tail lights and BRAKE LIGHTS NOT WORKING


It can be faulty brake light switch causing the problem or its blown brake light bulb. First check and confirm brake light lamp is working and that's not the case.

For turn signal not working it can be faulty turn signal switch or its issue with wiring:----

The right turn signal on my 1997 buick park avenue will not work. all other parts of this multi switch work


Does the front and rear light on the right side come on when you activate the switch ?
If a light is out the system won't flash.
If one side comes on and the other does not, the problem is usually in the turn signal switch.

Both of the turn signals do not work. The hazard lights only work in the back. I looked at the fuzes on the passenger side, and they are still good. What can I do to get them to work?


It sounds like you have at least two bulbs out in the front. I suspect that both turn signals did not stop at the same time? Check the front bulbs. Many turn signal bulbs have two filiments; one for parking lights and the other for turn signals. The same filiment is used for turn signals and hazards.
Another possibility is that there is a bad or broken ground wire in the front?
Finally, it could be the turn signal switch.

My blinkers sometimes dont work? looked at the fuse and it seemed okay but i replaced it anyway..seemed to work fine for a couple months now its doing it again...could it be an electrical problem or turn...


Try replacing the Flasher Relay. It has 2 relays, one for the turn signals and one for the hazard lights. The one for the turn signals is located Front seating area, driver side, under dash, behind instrument panel, mounted on passenger side of steering column.
The hazard flasher is located Front seating area, driver side, under dash, above kick panel, mounted in top of convenience panel.
Replace the Turn signal flasher.

Turn signal light staying on in front driver side and back turn signal light blinking too fast on driver side in back. All bulbs good.


Double check your front drivers side bulb sounds to me like the bulb is bad. It may look ok but could be bad. You might try swapping bulbs between the right and left front lights to test it. If the problem moves to the other side then you've found your problem. Good luck.

My left turn signal went out and I believe it is just the fuse but don't know which fuse to change


CHECK ALL THE BULBS ON THE LEFT SIDE BECAUSE THE FUSE WOULD CAUSE BOTH SIGNALS TO NOT WORK.IT IS ALSO POSSIBLE THE TURN SIGNAL SWITCH IS BAD.

check wire contacts in socket. If they are melted change the socket
It can be removed easily just unplug the wires.
