Question about Dodge Colt

1 Answer

Rear turn signals work, not the front

My rear turn signals work just fine, but the front don't. I changed the flasher and sockets, and they do light up while the headlights are on, they just don't blink. I checked the fuses as well.

SOURCE: 1991 Ford E150 turn signals do not work,emergancy flashers flash constantlly unless the flasher relay is unplugged from fuse block

Hi,

If I understand you right based on your post/description, the signal lights would still turn on even if any or both of the flasher relays are removed. Should this be the case, then the signal lights are not getting the power from the flasher relays but from the brake light circuit.

Perhaps your concern is not with any of the flasher, but simply missing or loose ground more particularly with the rear lights. Perhaps you could try determining which of the wires for the brake lights and signal lights (as they come out of the light assembly) would be ground . A test and even possibly a temporary workaround is to hard wire a second ground connection from the determined ground wire of the lights and attach it to any conveniently located bolt or screw to the body. it may be to your advantage to do this on all the rear lights assembly.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

How can I repair a malfunctioning left front signal light?


The flasher unit for the four ways is separate from the turn signal.
If the rear light is flashing fast means the front light is malfunctioning. Check all wiring from the dash to the light itself. I had one a wire was pinched and had broken

I have a 1992 chevy c1500 with light issues. Left turn signal works fine, right side blinks like 4 ways,along with license plate light.when head lights are on nothing for right side turn signals. Hazards...


It seems to be a ground defect on right side. Do you have the same bulb's number . What about the front flasher. remove right rear lamp assembly remove connector measure voltage between ground and current .reconnect it measure voltage at bulb socket. you should find your problems
hope it helps

Grand prix front turn signals lights will not work but rears flash rapidly.


Definitely not the flasher, as long as it is flashing or blinking somewhere. Rapid flashing indicates a burned bulb, but since you already tried new bulbs in front, possibly bad bulb sockets, loose connectors, or a bad ground for the front bulbs. If you have a test light or voltmeter (multimeter), check for power at the socket when turns are on. If power then at the front, try new bulbs or trace the ground for those lights. If no power to the socket for turn signals, recheck wiring.

Turn signal lights not working. turn on emergency flashers and the right signal flashes and bath back lights and the front right flash but the left front don't. any idea's


The 2 filament on the LH Front turn signal is most likely burned out, ...........or the ground to it, & the entire socket needs replaced. Caution lights, send signals to ALL FRONT & REAR lights. All turn signal lights must be in working order, as it is a "pulsating" currect surge sent to the bulbs, LH or RH, depending which direction you wisk to turn. If 1 filament is broken, the circuit is incomplete, & no flash will occur. Usually you will get one light that stays on, & the front or rear missing lighting, is the one whichis the culpret.

My 199 Ford Expedition-Left turn signal and brake light in rear does not work. I had the buld changed last Sat. And it was working for almost a week...But now I was told by a friend that is not working...


It is very common for the light bulb socket to become minorly burned. You need to replace the socket. They are less than 10$. Hope this helps. TJ

Driver front turn signal does not blink. front


This may have more then one bulb in the front or possibly a bad socket try wiggling the new bulb in the socket to see if it will work.Compare all turn signal lights that come on the passenger side to those drivers side.Some vehicles also incorporate sidemarker lights with the turn signals.
