You have a grounded circuit. The ground.fault is after the load but before the switch. With a grounded circuit you loose control of.the load. In your case the signal. All electricity flows in a path to the.load and back to the source. Follow the wires going from your turn signal to the turn signal switch. That is where your problem will be. Also check your turn signal relay it can be faulty as well

Intermittent problems can be the most frustrating thing. This can take a lifetime to solve or a few hours depending on whether fault shows itself when working on bike. More than likely it will be a leaky turn signal switch. Problem caused by owners using pressure washers and power washing the hand controls etc. forcing water into switchgear. Power washers should never be used near electrical parts or wheel bearings as water will be forced passed seals causing corrosion and eventual failure.

Right hand signal will not cancel.


Did you replace the stock turn signals with LEDs?

If so you probably need a "Load Equalizer"

My right turn signal flashes rapidly, and after turning it suppose to turn off itself but i have to turn off the signal manually. the left sometimes turn off itself.. how can i fix this? 98 buick century


when signal is rapid it useually means that a light is out. About your signal not turning it self off.
That is a defective indicator switch which useually means removal of steering wheel.

Your turn signal switch is most probably faulty. You will need to replace it. Please, check the videos below. The first video shows a similar problem on a Renault Clio. The second one shows the operations to replace the turn signal switch. I think that the operations are quite similar in most modern cars. Good luck!

replace the turn signal switch it self, mine did the same thing with the left turn signal, put in fuse and it will continue to flash... went to junk yard pulled one out of a 97 avenger just like mine, swapped them out and now it works fine. looked to be like some corrosion... to repace: 3 screws under columb, 2 screws on side of signal switch (black plastic side). unplug and replace

01 Softail Deuce left turn signal comes on, will not go off


I'm new to this site but actually has fielded a question about a Triumph motorcycle I'm worrking on!

I have an '03 Anniversary Deuce and I ran into (not the exact) but similar problem. My bike has the bars internally wired from the grips all the way through the top triple tree. Somehow over time the turn signal wire got shorted "internally". You might want to just unbolt the turn signal switch from the bars to see if the wire got pinched up high. If not...move the wires around to see if that helps. If it does...ultimately you should re-wire the connections. Just my experience...good luck!
