I had the same problem. What it was when you put the bulb in the clip that hold it and ground it was bent. Just straighting it out made it work.

Left bleaker and break light not working. Turn signal works bleaks faster than right side.


Has the vehicle been in an accident on the left rear side. First check the bulb to be sure it is not defective, trade it out with the side that works properly to test. If the bulb works well then My thought are you may have a shorted wire. The turn signal flasher works by heat build up within the flasher the heat is caused by the load of the bulbs, the load heats the metal spring causing it to open the circuit then as quickly as it cools down the circuit closes again lighting the bulbs.
There is also a possibility of a defect in the turn signal mechanism on the steering column. The turn signal switch on many models does three different things on many models that use the same bulb element / or bulb for brake and turn on rear of vehicle. It controls the circuit for brake light by sending power both left and right side rear when turn signal is in neutral position then when turn signal is in left turn the switch cancels brake light power to left side rear and supplies flasher power to left side while maintaining brake light supply to the right side rear, and so on opposite when the right turn is chosen on turn signal switch. The turn signal indicators on the dash normally run off the same circuit as front turn signal bulb only which is also controlled by turn signal switch. Front has turn signals but no brake light.
I think there is an additional load on the left side rear turn circuit and it could be either a wire that is shorted or the turn signal switch if the same bulb element is used for both functions.
Often times if trailer lighting is connected the flasher will also blink a little faster because of the extra load of additional bulbs.

If the right side works it's not your flasher, Its your left side bulb, either front turn signal or rear tail light bulb.

No left turn single


assuming you have check both front and rear signal lights and they are working then it sounds like the signal flasher is not working for the left side only.put on the hazard flashers to check bulb operation and if the bulbs work then the only thing in the system is the turn signal flasher not working for the left side.the signal flasher looks the same as the hazards but is a different flasher located in the same area as the hazard.

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.

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.

1993 Dodge Shadow...left turn signal won't flash


If the fuses are good and the front and rear bulbs are good, change the flasher for the turn signals, even tho the right is working. If that doesn't fix the problem, it might be in the turn sgnal switch on the steering column.
If both bulbs are good for the backup lights and fuses are good, then the backup light switch, which is screwed into the side of the transmission has to bad.
