Directionals arent functioning. Replaced bad front signal lamp and replaced fuse in panel in the car even though it looked okay. Is there another fuse I should look at in the engine block fuse box or might there be another problem?

Hi, the likely problem is a bad flasher relay. You can see a couple of different styles here: http://www.theautopartsshop.com/auto+car-usa+parts/saturn+sl-series+flasher.html

I've seen a couple of different locations listed for the flasher in your car. One says it's on the back of the fuse panel, the other says it's under the middle of the dash. Stick your head under the dash and see if you can spot something like the pictures at that link above. There may be a separate flasher for the hazard lights. Try turning them on. If they work, trace the sound and you may find 2 flashers there. You can see which is which by pulling each out with the hazards flashing. They will stop flashing when you pull out the hazard relay. Please let me know if you have more questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

2008 CTS front directional not working?


Try replacing ALL directionals for the side that is not working properly. That fast blink in the back usually means bad bulb, but could also mean bad relay.

Can you elaborate? You say emergency flashers work, but FR directional does not. Does the bulb-in-question light when the E-flashers are going?

03 chevy venture rt.front parking light&turn light don't work replace bulb&socket


The rapid flashing occurs because of the light problem. If the 20A PARK LP fuse in the underhood fuse block is OK, the front marker lamps and the park lights should turn on when you set the headlamp switch to PARK. If the 10A T/SIG fuse in the instrument panel fuse block is OK, and the ignition switch is on, moving the turn signal multi-function switch to signal a right or left turn should cause the turn signals to flash. If this doesn't happen, check for a missing ground connection to the socket you replaced and check to be sure the replacement lamp was not forced into the socket backwards (it happens).

Rear directionals blink fast but no blinking on either side in the front. Tried 4157 and 3157 bulbs and no luck. Replaced the hazard switch with an OEM switch and did not fix the problem. Put a volt...


If you have voltage in the socket with directionals then look in the socket and bend the tabs so that they will contact the bulb. They get hot and pull away from the bulb, rarely, but sometimes the tabs in the sockets will melt and break

No brake light,no turn signals , no flasher lights...I have checked fuses for each and they are OK. Also all bulbs are OK. Any suggestions.


Hi!!
Your multifunction switch may be defective. Replace it. $39.99 at AutoZone
  • Combination switches operate wipers, directionals, horn, headlights and dimmers.
  • When not replaced, wipers, directionals, horn, headlights and dimmer, independently or as a group, will not function or turn off potentially causing safety issues.

2009 cargo van chevy 2500-- cant find fuse for left directionals


first never plug back in to that trailer, it may have bad wiring, the next thing to do is to check the front and rear bulbs, they may have blown,if it was a fuse the signal inside would not blink,so this tells me you may have blown the bulbs,and also this trailer is unhooked from the van and lights still dont work?. good luck.

No turn signals


Check your ignition switch.It is possible it is coming apart and only powering up some accessories.

I have a 2005 Nissan Xterra SE. 95,000 miles. I have hazards but my directionals have stopped working. I believe its a fuse but I cant locate which fuse to check?


if your fuse box doesn't tell you which fuse is which, just pull them one at a time and replace any that are blown. if not a fuse, replace bulbs
