Usually you should be able to get at it without moving anything, when it is working you can listen for it and locate it.

My left turn signal recently stopped working. Before ceasing to work, the turn signal (just the left) would blink very rapidly (machine gun speed).


sounds like one of light bulbs was malfunctioning and caused the flasher unit to blink rapidly and iy burned out. Replace front and rear turn lite bulbs and see if flasher flashes. if not check fuse and replace fuse. If fuse okay replace flasher unit. Good luck

Right turn signal possible short


the wire is shorted.

trailer hitch hack job.

collision damage to rear.? wrecked the harness.



why would the flasher be bad, if left side front and rear works perfectly

we use a 15amp circuit breaker to replace the flasher fuse.

then find the short, (beaker keeps popping) when right turns are selected.

is this car under warranty?

did some one put in an illegal larger fuse in this circuit? dont

its a simple shorted line

we have a thing (real edison like) called an ammeter

we can measure the actual short, all look here its 15amps

just as the breaker trips, bingo city

then all we do is start pulling all inline connectors to find the section that is shorted, front or rear.



does that help?:

Where is the emergency flasher relay located on 2013 Rogue?


Here is what the service manual says. Looks like it is not a flasher relay but a function of the body control module.

TURN SIGNAL AND HAZARD WARNING LAMP SYSTEMSystem Description OUTLINE Turn signal lamp and the hazard warning lamp is controlled by combination switch reading function and the flasher control function of BCM.
TURN SIGNAL LAMP OPERATION - BCM detects the combination switch condition by the combination switch reading function. - BCM supplies voltage to the right (left) turn signal lamp circuit when the ignition switch is turned ON and the turn signal switch is in the right (left) position. BCM blinks the turn signal lamp.
HAZARD WARNING LAMP OPERATION BCM supplies voltage to both turn signal lamp circuit when the hazard switch is turned ON. BCM blinks the hazard warning lamp.
TURN SIGNAL INDICATOR LAMP AND TURN SIGNAL SOUND OPERATION - BCM transmits the turn indicator signal to the combination meter with CAN communication while the turn signal lamp and the hazard warning lamp are operating. - Combination meter outputs the turn signal sound with the integrated buzzer while blinking the turn signal indicator lamp according to the turn indicator signal.
HIGH FLASHER OPERATION (FAIL-SAFE) - BCM detects the turn signal lamp circuit status by the terminal current value. - BCM increases the turn signal lamp blinking speed if the bulb or harness open is detected with the turn signal lamp operating. NOTE: The blinking speed is normal while operating the hazard warning lamp.

Ford f150 truck flasher relay


I doubt it is the flasher since it handles both sides. A more likely cause is a faulty bulb socket or wiring problem.

Turn signal works then stops with lights just staying on. I replaced but fuses, left and right turn.


The flasher module is the culprit in most of these dilemmas. It will cost less than 10 bucks and could be necessary.(especially if never replaced...very mechanical)

1998 Dodge Durango flasher relays location


Turn on the Durango and check each of the four turn signals to make sure that the bulbs are not burned out. If you find one that has gone out, replace the bulb and retest the turn signals. When a bulb goes bad on this circuit, the resulting operation can mimic a bad flasher or one that is failing.

Locate the combination turn signal flasher and relay. It is on the left end of the driver's dash. Open the access door and view the collection of relays and fuses. At the left side of the mounting block is a larger flasher and relay. This is the combination turn signal flasher and relay.

Test the relay by placing you finger on the relay housing and activating the turn signal. If you have found the right one, you should feel a clicking as the turn signal blinks. Remove the relay, replace with the new relay and close the access door

.

Start the Durango and activate the turn signals to check that they each work. The light should turn on and should blink. Also, check the hazard lights to make sure they work.

I constantly hear the blinker in the car but the lights will not come on inside or outside of the car.


The hazard/turn signal flasher is a small square relay located right above the integrated control unit on the interior fuse block behind the left kick panel. If the flasher unit is functioning properly, you can hear an audible clicking sound when it’s operating. If the turn signals fail on one side or the other and the flasher unit doesn’t make its characteristic clicking sound, look for a faulty turn signal bulb. If both signals fail to blink, the problem may be due to a blown fuse (in the engine compartment fuse box, far upper left as you are facing the auto), a faulty flasher unit, a broken switch or a loose or open connection. If a quick check of the fuse box indicates that the turn signal fuse has blown, and the same thing happens after you replace it, you should check the wiring for a short.
To replace the flasher, simply (may be easier said than done) pull it out of the fuse block.
Installation is the reverse of removal.
Hope this helps you.

Right Turn Signal acts like the Emergency Flasher.


If you have an aftermarket trailer plug on your truck, you are going to want to inspect the wiring to the plug, and the connections in the plug. I think it's shorting out.
