You may have some corrosion in the socket where you plug in the bulb. This would cause the lights to not blink. Put the turn signal on, and check the lights, front and back. Are then on, and not blinking, or are they not on at all? If the bulbs are good, and they aren't on, it's the bulb socket problem. Get fine sandpaper, fold it around a pencil eraser, sand off any gunk or corrosion inside the socket. It could also be a faulty ground wire, check for a loose wire at the light assembly. front and back.countrycurt0

The right turn signal comes on but intermittently it makes long duration of blinks. Sometimes both the right front and right rear will be energized in the on position but will not blink at all. We have...


You say it's the right turn signal that is malfunctioning. If the left works correctly, then the problem is most likely NOT the flasher unit. That unit provides the flash for both left and right signals. I think that flasher unit is mounted on your steering column, down under the dash. It will probably be an aluminum cylinder, but may be a rectangular black plastic block. Before you change the flasher unit, I'd suggest checking the front and rear turn signal light bulbs. On the front, those are the parking light bulbs, and on the rear are the stop light bulbs. You may have a poor connection, probably from corrosion, or the bulb is very nearly burned out completely. Good luck.

Time to change the flasher unit, it's usually close to the drivers side of vehicle and behind a fuse box access panel and will have something like "12v 23/98W " on it. It's a largish cube shaped componant and may be water damaged !

Left signal light doesn't blink.Bulb is good. Does this mean a bad flasher? If yes, where is it?


No, if the flasher was bad, both left and right would not flash.

It means that one of the two left bulbs has burned out. When you have two good bulbs on the left side, the turn signal should blink.

Turn signal comes on,but doesn't blink;all 4 hazards work.


Check near the fuse box and the left side under the dash. There are two flasers in a car, one for the hazards and one for the turn signals. You are on the right track for if the hazards are working the bulbs and wiring to the bulbs are eliminated. Once you replace the flasher your problem should be fixed. When checking for the flasher remember they sometimes are clipped or taped up, so feel around as well as looking.
