What do you mean by indicator, the signal light itself or the indicator on/in the console.

Mitsubishi montero limited 2002 left turn signal stays on solid even when engine is off.

It sounds like there is a wire shorting to earth (The metal body) of the car somewhere. I would have a close look around where the wires to the indicators go through any panels or into the lights themselves for damage. Have a look inside the indicator housings on the front and back, there may be water or something in there causing a short. Cars use whats called a "neutral earth" electrical system. Components have an "Active" or positive wire supplying power when switched on, and its negative or neutral is supplied by a connection to earth or the metal body parts of the car.

I would say not as most flasher cans just flash and the required circuit to either left or right is connected when you select left or right. Recheck the LHR bulb is in a clean socket and is tight and the earth wire is connected correctly to a clean earth point. The problem is the completion of the circuit in the LHR bulb and holder and wiring.

I have a 2005 Chevy Tahoe and the hazards come on when I use my left turn signal occasionally. The right turn signal works fine.


i am not sure if you mean your hazard lights actually come on, or if all 4 indicators come on at the same time.
hazards coming on would suggest a fault in the indicator switch, or a short in the wiring.

all 4 indicators coming on, would suggest a bad earth connection on the rear left side of the vehicle. this is far more likely, and can be cured by tracing the earth wire to teh body of the car, and check for loose, damaged wires, or corrosion at the earth point on the body.

easy way to tell, is to switch on the tail lights at the same time. if these get brighter and dimmer in time with the indicators, it is almost certainly an earth fault.

hope this helps

Hello, the front left indicator is not working neither flashing at all. The rear left indicator just stays lit and does not flash. The right indicators work fine. I have bought the correct bulbs and...

Concentrate on the front indicator.
With a meter check you have an intermittent supply with the ignition on and left indicator selected.
If its ok, it will be an earth (ground) problem. Check using a temporary earth wire from the indicator unit to the chassis.
If no voltage found at indicator bulb, trace the supply cable back to source.

1988 acccord turn signal acts like light is blown

Check the earth to the offending light unit. Clean all the relevant connections. You could also try fitting a temporary earth cable and watch for any improvement. If you find that there is improvement in the operation of the indicator/flasher make the temporary earth cable permanent.
