Hi,

If I understand you right based on your post/description, the signal lights would still turn on even if any or both of the flasher relays are removed. Should this be the case, then the signal lights are not getting the power from the flasher relays but from the brake light circuit.

Perhaps your concern is not with any of the flasher, but simply missing or loose ground more particularly with the rear lights. Perhaps you could try determining which of the wires for the brake lights and signal lights (as they come out of the light assembly) would be ground . A test and even possibly a temporary workaround is to hard wire a second ground connection from the determined ground wire of the lights and attach it to any conveniently located bolt or screw to the body. it may be to your advantage to do this on all the rear lights assembly.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

1987. Why is there no power at the turn signal cam?


Do you have brake and parkng lights? The turnsignal switch on the column is just designed to relay a path to the flasher and then it is designed to interupt the brake and some of the parking lights lights, which cause the flashing on and off. Double check fuses double check bulb socks and bulbs for good contacts. Does the 4 ways work? If the lights all flash then locate the turn signal flasher and switch with emergency flasher if possible to rule out relay. If those are all good and the emergency flasher lights work and bulbs, then you would have a problem with the turn signal switch. Hope this all helps

I have a 2003 S10. My rear turn signals work, emergency flashers work, and my 3rd brake light works, but my tail light brake lights don't work. What do I do?


Check for power and ground to the lamps. Most likely you have lost ground, since you replaced everything else.

My signal lights and brake lights will not work I need to know if it's a fuse


The fuse is always the first thing to check, then put turn signal on (and ignition on) step out side and see if the front or rear bulbs turn on but don't flash. Turn on emergency flashers on, do they work? If not could be the flasher relay. Brake lights are trigered by a switch under the brake pedal or wired to the brake master cylinder.

What would cause the turn signals to work sometimes and sometimes not ?


A bad flasher relay would do that. They are usually located on the fuse panel and plug into it.

1994 Chevy C1500 truck. No rear brake lights


Most likely this is a brake light switch issue. Replace switch.

If your emergency flashers don't work, all flasher bulbs are fine, but flashing too fast, then check and replace Hazard light switch.

I have no signal lights


Do the emergency flashers work? If they do the turn signal flasher relay is probably bad.There should be 2 one for turn signals and one for emergency flashers. What you can do if emergency flashers are working is turn them on and see where the clicking is coming from.The 2 flashers are usually very close to each other.
