SOURCE: My 87 k100rt bmw left hand indicator switch doesnt work reliably

The switch may just need cleaning. Remove the switch unit from the handlebar and spray a good quality switch and contact cleaner into it. I had a similar problem with the indicator cancel switch. Do not use WD40. Get the switch cleaner from an electronics shop.

Alpha Romeo 156 My Left hand indicator light stays on continually, does not flash. and when I turn the hazard light switch on both indicators continually glow.


Generally speaking, symptoms of a bad or failing turn signal bulb are usually the culprit...in your case, either it's the front left or rear bulb. Varies for different vehicle makes...common signs include:
  1. turn signal light staying on solid
  2. or blinking very fast
  3. or either sides of the bulbs stop blinking altogether.
To test this, make sure you reconnect everything you disconnected.
Turn the left signal light on; go to the front of the vehicle, is the turn signal bulb illuminated? If it lights up, even though it is not blinking obviously the bulb is okay. If it doesn't, replace it- problem solved. You'll do the same procedure for the rear turn signal Is that lit up? If not replace the bulb and the problem is solved.
Another common failure is when the turn signal blinks really fast, same procedure as mentioned above.
If both bulbs for the left side and right side illuminate but don't blink, the problem is in the steering column turn signal switch.
If the left or right side blinkers don't work properly at all...then check the integrated hazard warning/turn signal flasher relay- that may be defective; again, that's usually the case if both sides of the signal light don't work.
If you are blowing any fuses related to the flasher system, you have an electrical overload in the turn signal circuitry.

My turn signals don't always work and the flasher warning doesn't seem to work. I have replaced the multi-function turn signal switch and the problem continues. Any suggestions what is wrong?


With intermittent issues, you have to test when problem is ongoing. These issues can be a pain to track.
There is a hazard switch separate from the multifunction switch. There are separate turn signal and hazard fuses, not only check the fuses, check the fuse circuit for voltage. Use a testlight to check voltage.
Use a wiring diagram, check proper color voltage wires to and from hazard switch, to and from turn switch when problem is ongoing. I can only help you with testing.

The fuse for a right turn signal on a 2001 Buick Park Avenue


The left an right turn signals get there power from same fuse ,HZDT/SG fuse 15amp in the left under hood fuse box. through the turn signal hazard flasher module. Here is how they work .
Turn Signal/Cornering Lamps
The HZDT/SIG fuse in the fuse block - underhood - left supplies battery positive voltage to the turn signal/hazard flasher module and have ground at G202. The turn signal lamps may only be activated with the ignition switch in the ON or ACCY position. The T/SIG fuse in the fuse block - underhood - left supplies battery positive voltage to the turn signal switch. When the turn signal switch is placed in either the left or right position, current flow is from the turn signal switch assembly to the turn signal/hazard flasher module. The turn signal/hazard flasher module then sends an on-off voltage signal to either the left or right turn signals and their instrument cluster (IPC) indicator. When the hazard switch is pressed, all the turn signal lamps will flash including both IPC turn signal indicators. The left turn signals have ground at G106, G400 and at G402. The right turn signals have ground at G105 and G400. The turn signal switch supplies battery positive voltage to the cornering lamps, the left cornering lamp has ground at G105 and the right cornering lamp has ground at G106.The turn signal switch or the turn / hazard flasher module is bad or there is a wiring problem. Go to you tube an check out a few videos on basic electrical testing ,then get a DVOM - digital volt ohm meter , an wiring diagram an trouble shoot the circuit . There may even be a video on test turn signal circuit .

Turn signal lights don't work


The first place to start are fuses, check your owners manual for location, typically left side of dash.

The emergency (hazard) flashers and turn signals are on separate fuses and run through the hazard switch. If all the lights work when the hazard switch is on then the problem will likely be a blown turn signal fuse.

Other possibilities are the hazard switch itself is bad, the turn signal switch is bad or a broken wire, all of which require a meter (or test light) wiring diagram and knowledge of the circuit to test it - better to have it done.

Left turn signal lights are not working


In my case the left front turn indicator lamp worked, but not the left rear indicator, although all the lamps would turn on with running lights activated, as well as the backup light and 'night-light' mode. The left rear turn indicator would not work with the hazard lights activated. I tested the combination switch (this is the left/right turn indicator switch you use when driving to indicate which direction you are going and is mounted/located on the steering column) and it tested O.K.. I had good continuity from the combination switch black wire, and resistance on the blue-white wire from there to the left rear turn indicator lamp, as well as good continuity on all wires going out from the left parking light fuse. Since the Haynes manual indicated that the flasher module was probably good if it made the tell-tale clicking sound, I was feeling perplexed. So I took it into a local shop that specialized in auto electrics and it turned out to be the flasher module. I was under the impression that it operated in a straight-forward left-right manner, but apparently it has a different circuit for each turn indicator lamp. So even if it is making the appropriate clicking sound when the combo switch is flipped, it could still be the flasher module. Obviously the manual leaves a bit to be desired in the troubleshooting of malfunctioning turn indicators.

My left rear turn signal is out on my 2006 Malibu. The bulb is good, but I replaced it anyway since I had the assembly apart. The left front flasher works fine as well. Before I try and replace any...


Stop lamp an hazard lights work ?
The body control module (BCM) is responsible for controlling the turn signals and hazard lamps. When the turn signal switch is placed in either the left turn or right turn position, the BCM receives a signal from the turn signal switch. The BCM then sends an on-off voltage signal to either the left or right turn signals and their instrument panel cluster (IPC) indicator. When the hazard switch is pressed, the BCM receives a signal from the hazard switch. The BCM then will send an on-off voltage signal to all the turn signal lamps. All the turn signal lamps will flash including both IPC turn signal indicators.

Repair an open, high resistance, or short to ground in the inoperative turn signal supply voltage circuit. Refer to Circuit Testing and Wiring Repairs .
Did you complete the repair?
