I can only think of 2 things , 1 is that your flasher relay needs changing , this usualy is under the dash in most vehicles near your legs whilst driving , this relay is usualy round shaped like a mini coke can , i would suggest replacing this first as this is the cheaper option , if not succefull it may be the indicater arm itself which would require you to remove steering wheel to remove and replace!

but the first option sounds like the cause as relay contacts may be shorting out and getting stuck , thus being the reason for working intermittantly . if both these solution fail then you may have a short in the wiring , but have faith and try the cheaper option first .

good luck

2003 kia sorento keyless entry not working

If both remotes light up and don't work even right next to the car, the car and remotes may need to be paired again. I found where someone mentioned disconnecting the car batter for more than one minute but less than five and seeing if it works again. If not, you may have to get it checked at a dealer. Most of these fobs are only programable with special tools at the dealer. I've purchased nissan oem fobs new on ebay, but still had to pay the local dealer to get them to work.

My blinkers work sometimes and then stop working for a while, then will start working again for no reason, its very random. I dont know what i should do to get this fixed.

The turn signal flasher is bad. It is built into the hazard switch. Replace the hazard switch. The next time the turn signals quit turn the hazard switch on and off a few times and see if they start working.

1993 Geo Prizm turn signals dont work. Hazard lights DO work. Checked fuse several times & its ok. Any suggestions?

You have a bad turn signal switch if the hazards work and the turn signals do not. It has nothing to do with the fuse or the flasher unit. Your switch is bad or you have a bad connection some where.

Turn signals sometimes don't work

Change the flasher to an electronic unit. They are far less likely to give you trouble.

1998 S90 Turn signal problem

I had the same problem with a 960. I checked the rear turn signal bulbs and they were okay. I took a look at the front left turn signal bulb and the two contacts on the bottom of the bulb had melted into one contact. If you remove the bulb, the turn signal will function again when the parking or headlights are turned on, but will flash fast since there is no bulb in the socket. You may also want to check the socket of the bulb to be sure that they are not shorted together.

Hope this works.
