When you turn on the blinkers do they stay a steady on?
if so then on bulb is not the right one or one is not working

I have a 89 Olds Ciera, and when the turn signal quit working ( bulbs did not light at all) I change the flasher, and they work fine. I found the flasher behind the ashtray. Of course I had to remove the ashtray.

A funny thing about this car, ( it was a gift) it seems every bolt I have had to loosen is metric! Metric for the thermostat housing, metric for the bolts holding the ash tray in. Were 89 Oldsmobile Cieras made in a foreign country?

Brake light trouble right side brake light will not come on but both flashers work also turn signals work older ford truck what could the problem


I have to think the problem is inside the turn signal switch, a poor internal connection. You know the brake signal first goes through the turn switch before it goes to the bulbs. That is why the brake lights and rear turn signal lights share the same filament in the bulb, and the same wire going to those lights. The only difference is the turning side light is affected by the turn signal flasher, causing blinking, while the other side- the non turning side-does not go through the flasher relay, but straight to the bulb from the turn signal switch. Change your turn signal switch and I believe you will solve the problem. Let me know, okay?

I have a Frontier XE 2001. Niether turn signal works have good bulbs and fuses are OK. Where else should I look.


did both signal lights stop working at the same time or not,it may just be the signal flasher has gone bad,it is located under the dash by the fuse panel.if the hazard flashers work then i would say the signal flasher is bad.with the hazards on you can locate it and that is what the signal flasher looks like and it is a separate flasher,

My right rear turn signal does nor work. It flashes rapidly. I replaced the bulb and it still does the same thing. Is there a flasher unit under the dash that I might have to replace?


make sure both signal lights work front and back if so then there is a signal flasher that will need replacing,it is located at or on the fuse panel under the dash on the drivers side.if you turn on the hazard lights you can find it under the dash and you will know what the signal one looks like also this will allow you to change the correct one and not the hazard flasher that some people tend to do thinking that they changed the right one only they have changed the wrong one.

The right turn signal comes on but intermittently it makes long duration of blinks. Sometimes both the right front and right rear will be energized in the on position but will not blink at all. We have...


You say it's the right turn signal that is malfunctioning. If the left works correctly, then the problem is most likely NOT the flasher unit. That unit provides the flash for both left and right signals. I think that flasher unit is mounted on your steering column, down under the dash. It will probably be an aluminum cylinder, but may be a rectangular black plastic block. Before you change the flasher unit, I'd suggest checking the front and rear turn signal light bulbs. On the front, those are the parking light bulbs, and on the rear are the stop light bulbs. You may have a poor connection, probably from corrosion, or the bulb is very nearly burned out completely. Good luck.

Turn signal doesn't blink just lights up


You should check the bulbs first. Front and rear, park,brake and turn signals. I think you will find there is either a bad bulb or possibly a faulty socket. If those are fine it may be a flasher problem. You can find the flasher by turning the signal switch to the side that works with the key on and find the clicking flasher. Good luck!!!

Both turn signals light, but do not blink


under the dash on the driver side there is a round or square sliver box that should say turn signal or flasher on it in the fuse box.

Flasher or turn signal switch


When you select left or right do any of the bulbs come on? If you select left check front and back left side if one of the bulbs did not come on the flasher will not work. Change the bulb that is out. Same with the right. If the fuse for the turn signal is good (check fuse or replace do not use visual, some appear to be good but are not).
The emergency flasher is different from the turn signal flasher. Look at manual for location of turn signal flasher. If you manually lift and lower turn signal control you may hear a clicking under the dash to locate the flasher.

Turn signal will not ''flash'' on /off-cops pulled me over about it


The problem is most likely not a bulb and certainly not a fuse but the 'flasher'. The flasher is located under the driver's side A/C duct above the fuse box. It just plugs in so you shouldn't need any tools.
