My blinkers are working properly, however, I get a fast blinking sound. Would buying a new emergency flasher correct this problem? The flashers are currently workiing.

There are usually two different flashers for the 4-way and turn signals.
Before you replace the flasher, make sure all your bulbs are working.

Need a diagram for how to find the flasher in a 1999 dodge stratus..it's not in the fuse boxes


Simple method without mystery:
  1. Turn blinker flashers on;
  2. Listen for clicking;
  3. Find source of clicking. It is the flasher. :)
NOTE: Emergency flashers and blinkers usually use a separate flasher unit, but one is close to the other. If your blinkers do not work but your emergency flashers do, find the emergency flasher unit by finding the source of clicking, then locate the blinker flasher nearby. They will ALWAYS be underneath the dashboard on the driver side.

Cant resolve a blinker issue, Tried the easy stuff.


The signal wire going to the right front has a splice for the dash indicator, a wire branching off from the turn wire and going to the dash. It sounds like that right signal wire is broken or lost a connection before it splices off to the dash, so the problem sounds like it is under the dash, either coming out of the turn signal switch to the flasher or from the flasher to that splice. You may need a multi-meter to check voltages on that wire at various places under the dash. Ascertain which color wire you need to concentrate on. Check for voltage on it with key on and right blinker on-voltmeter will spike to battery voltage, then fall to zero as the flasher breaks voltage continuously, if checked after the flasher. If checked when leaving the turn switch, it should be a continuous signal on that wire. Think you better find a wiring diagram to find the right wire to check. Good luck.

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?

The blinkers only work some of the time. All bulbs are good and the emergency flashers work. I found the flasher for the blinkers, but if it is bad, will the blinkers work some of the time and other times...


you need a signal flasher to correct the problem.flashers will act this way some times when they have an internal problem with the bi-metallic strip that actually completes the circuit and makes the clicking sound.make sure you have found the signal flasher and not the hazard flasher as they look the same.with the hazard flashers on you can see what the signal flasher will look like and it is in the fuse panel.

All of a sudden my front blinkers started blinking very rapidly. My front emergency flashers work fine. However, neither of my rear blinkers work, nor do my rear emergency flashers work.


You probably have a lamp that is burned out ... when you have only one turn signal light, it reduces the load on the flasher by 50% causing the bi-metal strip to heat at twice the rate as with two lamps.

No turn signals or emergency blinkers


Sounds like a multifunction switch, work the emergency flasher button up and down a few times, then attempt to work the turn signals if the signals work then you will need a multifunction switch.

Turning signals dont blink


Problem is the Turn Signal "FLASHER" unit, 1.Turn on Emergency FLASHERS 2. Go under Dash while they are on Listen -for Clicking sound then feel for it 3. Should Be a Silver Round Unit About as Big IN ROUND as Half dollar coin 4. ok now Look Around for the SAME EXACT Thing Clipped onto Something Under dash At Driver side Usually Between Steering wheel and Center HUMP in Floor, 5. once you find it Take OUT the first One you Found Emergency FLASHER) and 6. Put it In Place of Turn Signal Flasher, 7. Turn off Emergency Flashers- Turn Key in "ON" Position but don't start then Try Turn Signals. Yaaaa !!!! they work ?? LoL hopefully this Does the trick, if they work Buy new one and Replace Always Use NEW For TURN Signals as they are used Much More than Emergency Flashers. Hope this is Good Instructions For you and Helps you Solve The Problem, Please DONT Forget to RATE ME Thank you Rejakwilson@aol.com

Blinkers stopped working


Your F--150 has 2 flashers, emergency and turn signal. Both are mounted on the fuse block under the dash. The turn signal flasher is mounted on the front of the fuse panel, the emergency flasher is mounted on the rear of the fuse panel. so replace the turn signal flasher should solve the problem. Let me know how it goes.

Blinkers not working


Did you check the bulbs? If one bulb is burned out, the blinkers won't word on that side. You could have one bulb burned out on each side. Start the car, put left signal on. Check front and back lights. Is one light on but not blinking? If that's the case, the light that's not on at all is burned out and has broken the circuit so the good light stays on and won't blink. Check the other side. You also have a 'flasher' , actually 2. One for emergency flashers, one for the turn signals. It could be that the turn signal flasher is shot. You just have to unplug it to remove. It's probably located near the fuses. good luck countrycurt0
