If the blinker light on your dash also flashes rapidly it generally will mean that one of your blinker bulbs is burnt out. Try each direction and check the front and rear bulbs yourself. It is not impossible to have burnt out a bulb on both sides, so check them all carefully. If the lights themselves flash rapidly, or do not flash at all, then yes change out your flasher, which you should be able to get from any local parts store for a reasonable cost.

1995 mazda 626,front left turn signal doesn't work (blinks rapidly on dash)Only when the headlights are on, 4 way emergency flashers work fine. Bulbs ok. changed flasher it's ok. ???


I hear what you are saying however....whenever there is a bulb that is not good....you will get rapid flashing on the dash. Replacing the bulb is cheap...do it as a test if nothing else.

How to fix rapid flashing turn signal when all bulbs are OK?


Easy way to find the location of the flasher unit: Turn on either the RIGHT or LEFT indicator, and listen for the click under the dash. When you find the source of the click, THERE'S THE FLASHER UNIT! :)

Left turning signal blinks rapidly


Find your turn signal flasher under the dash, you should be able to hear it click with the turn signal on. The flasher plugs in and is easily replaced. If you go to a parts store first you can see what yours looks like.

I have no signal lights, left or right, on my 2000 Oldsmobile Intrigue. I was having a problem with a front bulb not contacting properly making the right signal flash rapidly. I left it flashing while


Check if your emergency flashers still work. You possibly need a new flasher. Some cars have separate flashers for turn signals and emergency flashers, but some they are both together. If your emergency flashers still operate leave them on and find the flasher (follow the clicking noise the flasher makes) and see if there is another flasher right next to it. swap with the emergency flasher and see if your turn signals work again. If so, replace the faulty flasher.

I have a 1987 chevy deluxe r10 dont have any turn signal I have head light brake lights park light an hazard lights but no right turn signal nor left turn signal I have check all fuses and put a new signal...


I think you might have a separate flasher for the turn signals under the dash. The turn and hazard flasher would look alike. Turn you hazards on and find the flasher for it under the dash. You will probably be able to feel it working and hear it clicking. The other flasher under the dash is for the turn signals. Try replacing that one. I think it was in later years they began to combine the two into a single composite flasher.

Turn signals aren't working but flashers are


that is because they run off different systems, they both have thier own relays, normally the common fault with flashers not working is either, fuse, or relay (flasher repeter unit), if you turn your turn signals left or right can you hear a click click click noise? if not its your flasher unit, hope this helps

Flasher or turn signal switch


When you select left or right do any of the bulbs come on? If you select left check front and back left side if one of the bulbs did not come on the flasher will not work. Change the bulb that is out. Same with the right. If the fuse for the turn signal is good (check fuse or replace do not use visual, some appear to be good but are not).
The emergency flasher is different from the turn signal flasher. Look at manual for location of turn signal flasher. If you manually lift and lower turn signal control you may hear a clicking under the dash to locate the flasher.
