You probably broke or bent the little pin that sticks out of the multi-function switch that makes the contact for the horn through the back side of the turn signal cancel cam.

When u turn left turn signal on they flash really fast and the light on fender doesnt light up now with no turn signals on and you push horn button left side starts flashing with the fender on flashing...


dear,

firstly make all the bulbs glow in the indicator segment.
this will moderate the flasher speed as due to even one bulb fused, causes other bulbs to glow at high rate.

thanx

    97 lumina blinkers dont work. Causes brake lights to go out when engaged. When emergency flashers on, rear doesn't flash unless turn signal is engaged then the one acts properly. Problem occured twice...


    The problem is with your multifunction switch.The steering wheel has to come off and you need a special puller for this.Also the air bag is part of the horn pad that has to be removed so the S.I.R system has to be disabled.S.I.R means Supplemental Inflatable Restraint.The indicator switch is part of the multifunction switch.It does not come off like earlier models.If you are not familiar with air bag systems then You should not be trying to replace the multifunction switch on your own.There is also a clock spring that is on the steering column and if it is not installed properly then it will fail and turn the air bag light on.Then it will have to be replaced.The price for that spring here where I am located is over $200.00.Could be more where you are.Hope this info helps.Good luck.

    The turning signal works and then it doesnt


    Sounds like the "Multifunction switch" has broken. The Multifunction switch is a one piece unit that mounts to the column, and is what the turn signal lever is part of. You'll have to replace the whole thing, as it sounds like something's broken internally. To service the switch involves removing the steering wheel, and possibly dropping the steering column to access the wiring connections. As a precautionary note, care and the proper tools must be used when dealing with the airbag and its components in the steering wheel. I hope this helps

    Rear turn signals don't work, bulbs are good, front signals blink fast, at first only drivers side didn't work occasionally, now neither side works at all. What's wrong?


    are you sure bulbs are good ?? double check bulbs also make sure there is a ground wire from your light fixture is grounded to the body near by this might be causing your problem .. usually if front ones blink fast rear bulbs are bad ... thanks Jerry holler if you need more.
