Turn signals not operating

Scene: Hazard lights work, Guide light comes on when signal switch on,
tailights and brake lights work . Turn signals do not work - no signal on

I just bought the car the turn signals work in the front but not in the back whats the problem?


Have you checked the bulbs already?
Don't know what kind of car you are dealing with here.
Most vehicles - the brake lights and rear turn signals share the same electrical circuit to the rear tailights. Usually the turn signal switch will separate which signal goes to the back.
Do your brake lights work? Is there a High mounted stop lamp and does it work?
I have seen a Hazard Switch be ON and fuse blown causing the Hazard Flasher to be inop - which prevented the turn signals from working. Turning OFF the hazard flasher brought back the T/S.
Check the rest of the lights - see what does and doesn't work - and do the front turn signals flash? Stay On? Or flash really slow?
Let me know what you find out and if this helps you at all.

1998 cadillac eldorado rear brake lights and hazzard lights do not work


More likely that the turn signal switch assembly is bad.Have someone watch the tailights(or use a large mirror) to see if the bright tailight filaments come on with the brake pedal held down while you wiggle the hazard light switch.

Where is the brake relay on a 2001 gmc sierra.


Try wiggling the hazard light switch while pressing on the brakes.The taillights are connected to the turn signal switch before it goes to the brake switch.The contacts on the hazard switch are probably dirty(I remember this problem years ago,same symptoms-3rd light works but l/R tailights not working).You may just be able to turn the hazards on+off a bunch of times to clean the contacts instead of replacing the switch.

I have a 1977 Mercury Grand Marquis the turn signals, brake lights, and turning lights do not work. The running lights and hazard lights do work. I checked the bulbs and the relay can for the turn signals...


Turn signal switch (also brake light canceling switch) most likely bad or bad wire to it or from it. Check, with key on run, for power into switch. Turn switch on, check for power out. No power out switch bad. Power out, trace to rear tailight harness for broken wire.

I have no signals and when brakes lights are on, lose brake light to either side turn signal is set on


Hi!!

If you activate the turn signal switch and you step on the brake pedal, the turn switch (on the steering column) deactivates the brake light to make the signal light more visible. The bulb for the stop and turn lights is the same.

Turn hazard lights ON. If they don't blink, replace turn/hazard flasher, If one or more lights don't come on, replace bulb.

Check fuse and circuit wiring for broken or loose connections. If all looks fine, check following:

If front turn lights work fine, check brake/turn bulbs.

If turn lights come on but don't blink, replace turn signal/hazard flasher.

If front and back turn lights don't come on, replace switch on column.

Let me know how it worked out, Good Luck

I have no brake lights or turn signals on my 95 gmc truck. I have replaced the boards but no luck. Also have checked fuses.


OK if the fuses are good , use a test light and check to be sure you have power at the fuse terminals. you'll check from ground to the terminal on top of the fuse. you should have 12vdc. then , check for power at your brake light switch on both terminals while the brake pedal is pressed, it is located located on the brake pedal assembly. also , check your hazard flasher switch to be sure it is not on. if it was on, check your flashers, both the turn signal and hazard flasher. If everything checks out , your problem is probably in your turn signal switch assembly located in your steering column.

Bottom brake lights and hazard lights do not come on. All other lights work including top brake lights. Fuses and bulbs checked.


Check for power out of brake light switch by brake pedal. Of its faulty , the 3rd brake light will still work. Hope this helps
