Hi, Is this problem with both sides i.e. Left & Right turn or is it just one side?
If it is just the one side, it could be that water has got into your indicator light either the front or back causing the bulb holder to corrode giving you the problem your having.
It also may be that a bulb has blown on the front or back as this can also cause the problem you are having.
The other reason could be that the earth wire, is not earthing on the car properly and if this is the case the earth wire will need finding and undone, so it can be sanded underneath where the earth wire touches the car and doing this will ensure the wire is grounded properly as it can corrode, where the earth strap is bolted to the car. How ever this is the least likely cause of your problem!
Do the signal lights come on and stay on without flashing or do they stay off, but does the signal light on the dash board come on as normal and flash does this also just stay on.
Please let me know and i will be able to assist you further.

Cac't find turn signal flasher on 1997 GMC Savana


Fast flashing is usually indicative of a bulb out as the load is decreased. Perhaps a side repeater?

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

Turn signal will eluminate but not flash. emergancy lights work and flash fine. Have replaced the flasher and turn signal switch.


You know you have 2 flashers right, one for emergency flashers and one for signal lights? Does it refuse to flash on both sides, right and left? Have you checked all bulbs front and back are good?

How to fix turn signal on 86 Chevy Astro Van


you don`t say but do the lights work either on the front/back on both sides.if not then it may be a fuse that needs replacing or need a bulb replacement.if the lights work but don`t flash then it sounds like a signal flasher problem.the flasher is located in the fuse panel under the dash on the drivers side.if the hazard flashers work then turn them on to find the hazard flasher by the fuse panel then you will know what the signal flasher looks like and change the signal flasher.make sure you change the one for the signals and not the hazard one.if the hazards work then i would say the signal switch is good as the hazards work through the same switch.

92 caprice classic turn signals not working, but the bulbs are fine. Hazards, brakes, etc all work fine. Any ideas?


Yes, the problem is the turn signal flasher is defective. You can has two flasher relays. One for the turn signals and one for the hazard lights. That is why the hazard lights flash and the turn signals do not. Replace the turn signal flasher relay located on the drivers side of the steering column, mounted behind the instrument cluster in the convenience center. They are both mounted in the same location so turn on the hazard lights and the one that you put your finger on that is not clicking is the turn signal relay.

1993 Dodge Shadow...left turn signal won't flash


If the fuses are good and the front and rear bulbs are good, change the flasher for the turn signals, even tho the right is working. If that doesn't fix the problem, it might be in the turn sgnal switch on the steering column.
If both bulbs are good for the backup lights and fuses are good, then the backup light switch, which is screwed into the side of the transmission has to bad.
