Question about 1987 Ford Mustang

1 Answer

My turn signals started blinking really fast, and

My turn signals started blinking really fast, then slow, then fast again. Then they would stay on solid and not flash, and then stopped working completely. I try to flash them manually by flipping the switch back and forth and nothing happens. I tried the emergency flashers and they do work. Do I need a new flasher or a new switch? Is it an easy fix?

Alpha Romeo 156 My Left hand indicator light stays on continually, does not flash. and when I turn the hazard light switch on both indicators continually glow.


Generally speaking, symptoms of a bad or failing turn signal bulb are usually the culprit...in your case, either it's the front left or rear bulb. Varies for different vehicle makes...common signs include:
  1. turn signal light staying on solid
  2. or blinking very fast
  3. or either sides of the bulbs stop blinking altogether.
To test this, make sure you reconnect everything you disconnected.
Turn the left signal light on; go to the front of the vehicle, is the turn signal bulb illuminated? If it lights up, even though it is not blinking obviously the bulb is okay. If it doesn't, replace it- problem solved. You'll do the same procedure for the rear turn signal Is that lit up? If not replace the bulb and the problem is solved.
Another common failure is when the turn signal blinks really fast, same procedure as mentioned above.
If both bulbs for the left side and right side illuminate but don't blink, the problem is in the steering column turn signal switch.
If the left or right side blinkers don't work properly at all...then check the integrated hazard warning/turn signal flasher relay- that may be defective; again, that's usually the case if both sides of the signal light don't work.
If you are blowing any fuses related to the flasher system, you have an electrical overload in the turn signal circuitry.

95 Mazda 323 Hatchback - front left turn signal works sometimes. When not working, indicator blinks fast and rear left signal light blinks quickly as well. I was told it was the bulb but how can that


Could be a faulty socket too. The flasher "blinks" slow when all lights are functioning. A short to ground, to another circuit, or an open circuit can make the flasher blink fast.

fast flashing signals mean that one of the bulb are not flashing, usually a burnt out signal bulb. just turn on the signals and check for what bulbs don't flash. replace bad bulbs and then chack again.
