Also look at the socket itself and check for corroded rusted or bent tabs as well as making sure that you are using the correct bulb. Just because you use the same number as the one that came out doesn't neccasarily mean that it is correct. If your ligh just comes on and stays on when using the turn signals and it does this on both sides that is usually an indication that the flasher itself is bad.

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.

Fast flashing turn signals


I would change out the turn signal bulb on the right front. A blown bulb can cause the fast flash issue. The signals staying on is not related to the bulb being blown. That is most likely a problem with the multifunction switch, the knob you use to signal.

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

2006 pt cruiser on drivers side rear turn signal


The turn signals flash depends on each and every bulb working correctly. When one bulb fails, you will notice a change in the flash frequency, as you describe.

Replace or repair the bulb that is not working, and you should be good to go.

Front signal light not working and rear signal lights flashing fast on 1999 intrigue


Your front turn signal socket is shot. Buy a new one at the dealer for about 30.00. It will fix it. You may be able to clean it and wiggle it to get it to work. But it wont last very long. I had the same problem. Replaced the socket and it is fine. Note: If one side is bad the other side it not far behind. Probably 2 or 3 months it will go also. Good Luck.

My right turning signal sometimes doesnt work. The light in the dash stays on, but doesnt flash. When this happens the front light stays on when the signal is applied, but the back one doent work. Ive...


  1. Turn 4 way (hazard) lights on check to see that all lights are flashing if rear is not flashing suspect bad ground since 4way usually goes through brake light.
  2. If everything flashes you may have a bad flasher relay find it replace it.
  3. If light still will not flash check light socket by removing bulb & looking for burnt melted contacts or plastic. You find any of these problems consider replacing socket.
  4. If you do not find any problems with socket use a cheap test prob connect alligator clip to metal ground near socket with bulb out turn on blinker carefully touch each contact inside socket when you find the right contact prob should light up & blink.
  5. If you cannot get prob to blink move prob ground to new location do step 4 again.
  6. If you still get no blink start probing wires coming into socket until prob lights working away from socket.
  7. Ground is on the side of the socket when you look in it.

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.
