Question about 1999 Buick Century

1 Answer

My front turning signal flashers don't flash. The bulbs stay lit when the headlights are on, but don't flash, so the bulbs are good and making contact. The dash and rear signals flash rapidly. I cleaned the sockets to make sure there is no corrosion. Would it be the flasher module is bad even though the rear still flashes?

Right front side turn signal does not work replaced all bulbs and checked fuses headlight flashers work when hazards are on front to back except driverside turn signal ,in dash right stays solid left


I don't believe it would be a bad ground for just one light. It could be a wire, a socket connector, or the bulb socket itself. See if the wire has power at the socket when signaling left, with key on. If there is power, probably a bad socket or connector. If no power, check for power coming from flasher-the wire going to front left, or driver's side. If you have power from the flasher, but nothing at the socket, the wire has probably broken.
Good luck.

I have a 2000 maxima...when headlights are on, passenger side blinker stays lit on the dash and doesn't flash at all. While the headlights are off and i turn the passenger turn signal on it then b


Plain and simple...Your turn signal circuit is shorted to your headlamp circuit. What USUALLY causes this is an incorrect light bulb has been installed in the vehicle or the light bulb was installed incorrectly. There are other possible causes of these circuits being shorted together, but 99 out of 100 of the times that I have seen this it is either because somebody just replaced a bulb or a bulb socket melted somwhere on the car. Be sure to check both the front AND rear bulbs.

I have a 1995 chevy cavalier and the turn signals just stay on and don't blink. I have changed the flasher and the multi function switch and still no luck


First, is it doing it on BOTH isdes or just on one side? Example: turn signnals flash OK when turning left, but only come on and stay on when turning right. If it is doing this, then you most likely have either a blown bulb or a bad bulb socket on the side that is not flashing. You need to check both the FRONT and REAR bulbs to make sure they are all functioning properly.
If it is doing it on BOTH sides, then you either have a bad flasher, or at least 2 bulbs burned out (one or more on each side).

Are you sure you replaced the correct flasher? The flasher for the HAZZARD lights is plugged into the convinience center under the left side of the dash. If this is the flasher you replaced, it is the wrong one.
The turn signal flasher is mounted to the driver's knee bolster bar near the steering column. It is held to the bar with a clip. (see diagram)

My front turn signals keep going out and when i changed the bulb the light doesnt flash it just stays on


Please check if you have the correct part number bulbs? The front and rear bulbs are dual filiment, one for the signal and the other smaller one is a running light. If the bulb you have are correct, does your 4 way flasher function work and or left turn signal work? If the remaining rear flash ok, then your flasher unit is OK. You can also check the bulb running light by turning on the headlights. You might have a faulty or incorrect bulb if it does not light up.

I just recently had he same problem with mine. I replaced the front right turn signal bulb, but after a week of it working correctly, my wife complained that the turn signal did a double time fast flash. I found the rear bulb signal/ brake bulb was out as well. So I decided to purchase a dual pack bulb set and replace both the rear brake/signal bulbs (bulb number 4135) Your auto part store person can look up the correct number for the bulb brand you choose for the van. Since all the bulbs are about the same age and wear, I would recommend replaceing all of yours. Good luck.

How to change the turn signal flasher?


Check the the bulbs at the front and rear of the vehicle work. If one is not lit up, replace that one. On some of the earlier model cars the blinkers would stay solid and not flash when one or both bulbs were blown. Modern cars have a rapid flash when one or both are blown

Driver side signals only work when headlights are OFF


What may have happened is either the headlights wiring or the parking lights wiring somewhere along the wiring fused to the left turn signals wiring. Depending on if the turn signals go on when you put the parking lights on or the headlights on.

If the signals come on when you turn on the headlights than you only need to locate the light green wire that comes off the left turn signal harness.

Next follow that wire the entire way back to the firewall looking for another wire fused to that wire as you go.

If there are no signs of this you need to continue looking on the other side of the firewall all the way back to the turn signal and hazard flasher unit which is a black box that connects to a black harness located next to a grey harness behind the knee bolster.

But if the signals come on when you turn on the parking lights than you will also need to check the wiring from the rear left signal and follow that light green wire all the way back to the turn signal and hazard flasher unit.

This should fix your problem, but if not than your problem may lay within the the wiring between the turn signal/hazard switches and the turn signal and hazard flasher unit.

Also you may have a burnt circuit in the junction block. This block is where the light green from the rear left signal and front left signal meet. Don't have a description but if you cannot find it let me know and I will go out to the yard and look myself and let you know.

Try replacing the flasher first. If the does not fix it then you have a bad turn signal switch.
