Signal lights on dashboard


I would start at the left brake light. Check the bulb and wiring. Your brake light could be grounding through the blinker circuit.

My left flasher stopped working suddently


If the right flasher is working and the left flasher is not, that should be a burned out light bulb, either front or rear. (outside)
If you will wait until it is dark, it is easier to diagnose.
After dark, turn on the right turn signal, then look carefully at the brightness of the front and the brightness of the rear turn signal. Now, turn on the left, and again observe the brightness of each. One of the bulbs should be out, or not as bright as the other side. That is the bulb you will need to replace.

Problem with turn signal when headlight is on


this sounds like a earthing problem , so check the wiring for the head lights, see if any wires are trapped between something, bare wire touching car body , anythingthat doesn't look correct, could also be the indicator lever itself with a problem , but check the headlight wiring first

No break lights, high beams, or turn signal lights


Do they work intermittently? Do your low beams go out sometimes when you put on turn signal? Do hazards work sometimes and if you play with switch they work off and on? I just had a problem with headlights would go off if I put on turn signal and if I jiggled the turn lever they would come back on and had trouble with all light working intermittently, brakes, turn and hazard. It was a Turn signal switch problem.The contacts in the switch were bad, all corroded and green when I took it apart. I know you wouldn't think this would affect brake lights but hey all run through this switch because of hazards and high beams. I got a new switch from dealer and all is working great now. Here's a link a link I used for switch replacement instructions. http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f11/write-up-replace-turn-signal-switch-97-xj-620147/
If it isn't a fuse or wiring issue I would look into the switch.

MY LEFT TURN SIGNAL ARROW INSIDE STAYS LIT WHEN THE CAR IS STARTED BUT DOES NOT FLASH.THE RIGHT FLASHES.THE LEFT TURN SIGNAL CLICKS ONCE THEN NOTHING BUT IF I MANUALLY PRESS DOWN IT FLASHES.


make sure all the turn lights are working on your car. sometimes this is an indication of a burnt out bulb. you likely need to replace the flasher relay under the dash. if you have trouble locating it. turn on the turn signal that works and listen for it. once you know where the general location is put your finger on it and if it's clicking you have found the right relay.

Left brake light not working , right turn signal on both tail lights flash


Your problem is that you have a bad earth on the Left hand side rear light so get a jumper lead and put 1end to earth and the other one hold on the light casing or on the black wire on the light and turn on the indecators and it will light up and stop light and rear light will be bright as the same with your head lights if 1 is dim and the others bright its the EARTH WIRE same on the rear its only earth..

My turn signals will blink very fast until I jiggle the turn signal arm, sometimes turning on the bright lights accidentally. Now only the back left blinker (turn signal) will not come on until I jiggle...


check ur connection....check ur light bulbs front and back and replace the ones who dont work....also undo the stearing casing and look for loose or broken wire...if problem cant be fixed bring it to a auto electrician....
good luck
