One of 2 things to have checked, if all your bulbs and connections are correct. 1-stop lamp switch module.
2-multifunction/combination switch (blinker arm/components that are in the steering column). For about a 1/2 hrs. labor cost, a mechanic should be able to test the circuits.

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.

Hi, is there a trailer plug on the truck? It sounds like something wasn't wired correctly or someone has been into the wiring. Another possibility is the harness getting trapped in a tailgate hinge. Look for something like that in the back of the truck. If you can tell me your model and year, I may be able to find the wiring diagrams. Thanks for using FixYa.

I think your trouble is in the turn signall switch, just had the same trouble on my truck. Turn signall switch is about $250 because it is actually turn signalls, wipers, washers, 4 ways, and dimmer all in one.

2005 Nissan Frontier...when I step on the brakes my right turn signal comes on but doesn't blink? when I turn on the Left turn signal and step on the brakes, it blinks just fine! What's causing this?????


If the turn signal bulbs are the same as the turn signal bulbs it would indicate the brake light on the left is not working. If the brake lights AND the right turn signal come on it could indicate a wire is getting a cross feed from an improper source. If you are comfortable with electrical systems - If you have a tow package you may want to check the wires to the trailer. Otherwise have it checked by an electrical shop.

Left rear turn signal and brake light dont work


You have a broken wire to the turn/brake light portion of the light as they use the same wire. Or where the plug goes into the light assy could be bad. Torsion mount lights are horrible and you should think about replacing with a universal light that you can wire direct.
