I understand. Look at the tailight lenses and see if there are screws on the lenses or not. If yes, then unscrew the lenses and remove the bulbs. Do 1 at a time and reinstall each bulb before doing the next one.

Get a can of WD-40, a rag and check the socket and bulb contacts for corrosion. Spray the socket with WD and wipe off excess.

If the tail lenses do not have screws, the access is behind the lenses, inside the vehicle. You would twist the socket to remove the harness and then remove the bulb. Repeat as instructed with screw type lenses.

Same thing for the front signals. Hopefully you would find 1 bad socket and WD has cleaned it. If socket is too corroded there are replacements in the "HELP" accessories section at many Autoparts stores. Then it is a simple matter of clipping off the bad socket and replacing it.

Do not panic about that necessity. It is actually a delicate process which is better handled by small female hands anyway. "Remember Rosy the Riveter". There is a way to use a test meter to substitute for a fuse. It is called an Ohmmeter and costs about $10. But do not worry about that yet. Many problems are solved with WD 40.

make sure that all of your turn signal bulbs are not blown they run through each other so you know when one gets blown.

Turn signals and hazards wont work on my 1990 Deville fuse is fine. what next?

It sounds to me that your turn directional switch located behind the steering wheel has failed (was a common problem in those years) If you have an airbag in the wheel then the switch is called a clock spring. To test unplug the connector under the dash going to the switch and plug in a new switch. and manually turn the new switch back and forth to see if systems work.

Turn signal not working

Press the Hazard switch on and check the turn indicator lamps. Replace the faulty lamps.
If the hazard lights do not work then the trafficator flash can is faulty provided the trafficator fuse is OK.
Check the fuse for the turn indicators, if it is blown the replace the fuse.

Have 95 mitsu..Diamante, the hazards flash but my turn signals wont. I have replaced all fuses, does anyone have a solution?

Did you check to make sure all the bulbs are working? on some cars the flasher for the hazards work even when some bulbs are out but the turn signals will not. If you have blown bulbs replace them and it should work if not then you have one of a few cars that have two relays for the signals, one for hazards and one for turns signals.

1998 taurus - turn signals were working - pushed the hazard lights button - hazards did not work and also now turn signals do not work

Check the fuse/relay panel for a blown fuse/relay. Also look at the turn signal flasher and the four way flasher located in fuse/relay panel for problem. If the fuses are good replace the flashers to correct the problem. Hope this will help you.

Hazard flashers do not work. Turn signals do. Changed relay. Nothing. Ugh. 1992 oldsmobile cutlass supreme

You changed the hazard flasher or the turn signal flasher? It has two, one for the hazard and one for the turn signals

Turn signals and hazard don't work

Next best guess is the flasher unit has failed, this could be your little blue box, pick up a replacement at any auto parts store and replace it.
