Hi staki
dave here

if you turn on your right turn indicator and walk around the car you will likely find one of your bulbs are out or that your brake light is out on the right side. if all your indicators flash have someone press the brakes while you check the light.

How to fix rapid flashing turn signal when all bulbs are OK?


Easy way to find the location of the flasher unit: Turn on either the RIGHT or LEFT indicator, and listen for the click under the dash. When you find the source of the click, THERE'S THE FLASHER UNIT! :)

I need to know how to replace the electronic flasher for my turn signals on my 2001 grand am se. My turn signals only work a quarterof the time.


are you sure you don`t have a bulb filament that is making and breaking contact causing the flasher to intermittently work.assuming you mean they either stop flashing or flash faster than normal.when the flashers are working look under the dash and find the flasher unit with it operating.all you have to do is pull the flasher out of its location and install in reverse.i say check with the signals working because the hazard flasher looks the same but is a different unit.

When failed trun signal bulb, Jeep turning signal is fastly blinking. I changed rear turn signal bulb with LED bulb, but turn signal blinking speed doesn't go to normal, At first couple of seconds it is...


Try replacing with the same bulb type as was failed. Flasher unit isusually reliant on resistence from the bulbs to what speed that side will flash at when powered.Some of these led type have less resistence and that equates to a faster flash speed.That is why when one bulb blows that side will flash faster or may even stay on without flashing.You could even swap the led to the other side( to confirm.Check with the bulb retailer to whether they have those bulbs with a higher rated resistence in led.If this vehicle has leds as standard,you may need to get the correct type from dealer. Hope this helps or get back with findings if it still has fault after replacing bulb.

When putting on the left or right turn signal or flashers the two front lights do not flash. Also noticed that as the rear flash, it is faster than normal.


sounds like a bad bulb or flasher...
If the light outside light up , but do not flash.... then plink the flasher ( round silver bulb in the fuse box) with a finger and see if they start working...

Signal lights flash faster than normal, back signals work front ones do not, front lights work when head/parking lights turned on.


The fast signal flashing indicates that you have a burned bulb (or one of the bulb elements is burned).
Based on your saying it's the front one on the side your flasher control is set when the signal light flash faster

By a new bulb light and replace the faulty one
hope it will help

LEFT TURN SIGNAL FLASHING TOO FAST


when a turn signal indicator flashes faster than is normal it is your vehicles way of telling you there is a problem with the lighting system, do a visual check of your turn signals and you will find a burned out bulb. just replace the bad one and it will return to normal

Turn signals


The flasher unit, normally located under the dashboard, could well be due for replacement.
Rapid operation and only a faint display of the signal on your dashboard normally signals a failed bulb.
You have it on both sides though so if you haven't noticed that the problem favors one or the other sides, the flasher is likely bad.
You might have someone watch your turn signal lights to see if there is any action at all from them.

FYI; the common flasher has a heating element in it through which some of the current for the bulbs flows to make them load dependent and thereby letting you know when you have a failed bulb.
The lowered current causes an incomplete thermal cycle of the heated element and a more than normal flash rate.
