I assumer you're getting a a "check left turn signal" error message too? The rapid flash is the car's way of letting you know you've got a bulb out. The front bulbs can be tricky since they're double filament. If one filament is out the light may look dim. Set the hazards on and inspect. Last time this happened to me on my 2001 S60, the bulb was fine and the socket was flaky. You may need to clean the contacts and check the resistance from the plug to the socket. Mine is working now - for the time being. I hope it's not your front bulb because you have to remove the air filter to get to it. Good luck!

My name is Dave, any help would be much appreciated! When I turn on the left or right directional indicator from the lever on the steering column it makes a rapid blinking on the control panel, the front...


Hi, I have a couple of questions.
1. were the signals working before you replaced the brake light bulbs, and did you use the recommended bulbs?
2. Do the brake lights work now?

The brakes and signals use the same filaments, so these things are tied together.

Rapid right blinker light


Rapid blinker usually means there is a burned out bulb in one of the turn signal lamps.

My left & right indicator does not work & does not blink when it's on.. how do i fix it?


There could be several things that will cause your blinkers to stop working. Most will have to be diagnosed by a QUALIFIED automotive electrical shop but there is one thing you can try first. Step one is to turn your blinker stalk rapidly between right and left turn. Don't damage anything, just go back and forth several times real fast. Next, turn your emergency flashers on and off. Rapidly, like you did with the turn signal stalk. Again, don't damage anything, just do it as rapidly as you can, several times. What you are trying to do is clean the contacts inside the switches. Those two circuits work together to operate the turn signal lights and the emergency flashers are rarely, if ever, used and the contacts get a little corroded.

Replace front turn signal bulbs


odd speed blinker is a message to tell you that a light bulb has burned or is disconnected. All front lights can be replaced from the engine compartment EXCEPT the turn signal :( .Unfortunately you will have to pull the headlight assembly out in order to reach the turn signal bulb. If the light was off since the assembly was replaced, there is a chance that the socket was simply left unplugged.

Right read blinker/break light dont work, turn signal blinks rapidly


It's the bulb. There are two filliments in the bulb. One is for when you turn your lights on and the other is for breaking and blinker flashing. When the break filliment goes bad it causes the blinker to flash very rapidly. 100% the bulb. Change it and all will be good again. P.S. if it were a fuse none of the break lights or blinkers would work.
