    When the key is turned to the on position the front two signal lights come on steady the back two do not. Activating the signal switch does nothing at all to either set of lights.

Check all the grounds. Clean the connections everywhere and see what happens.

If you are talking about the back and it has 2 filaments someone has put front signals on the rear. These bikes came with front turn signals that take dual filament type 1157 bulbs like the ones used in tail/brake lights. The lower power filaments are on normally and the when you switch a turn signal on the low filament in that bulb is turned off and the high power filament flashes.

I would start by checking the bulbs with an ohm meter or continuity checker. The rear bulbs (1156 type single filament) should have somewhere between 0.5 and 1.0 ohms between the metal shell and the contact. The front bulbs (1157 type dual filament) should have between 0.5 and 1.0 ohms between the shell and one contact and 2 or 3 ohms between the shell and the other contact. If any bulbs have no continuity replace them.

If the bulbs are all OK you need to check the connections where the signals plug into the harness. The rear connections are usually under the passenger seat and the front ones are usually inside the headlight shell. Make sure everything is plugged in the way it should be - the wires are all colour coded to make it easy: green to green, light blue to light blue &c.

If the bulbs are OK and the wires are all plugged in correctly the problem could be the switch and it probably just needs to be cleaned. If you don't already have contact cleaner in your shop you should get some. Contact cleaner will fix more electrical problems than your buddy who is really into wiring. ;-)
Note: You need to get real contact cleaner. WD40 is a fine product and has many uses, but it is not real contact cleaner. It leaves a sticky residue that will attract dust and you will have dirty contacts again before you know it.

You can usually clean your switches without taking anything apart. If you look at the bottoms of your switch clusters you will see that there are small holes, just the right size to accept the straw from the contact cleaner and located so that it will spray right onto the contacts.

Just spray the contact cleaner into the hole and work the switch or button vigorously several times, then turn on the key & try it. You might need to repeat the process several times before it works properly.

Its possible that you can find all the answers to this and other problem in the Service Manual:
* Fix-Your-Problems Service Repair Manual Year/Model Application: 1986, 1987, 1988, 1989, 1990, 1991, 1992, 1993, 1994, 1995, 1996, 1997, 1998, 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004 Suzuki LS650 (LS-650) Savage Motorcycle.

Hope help with this.

02 Buick LeSabre Ltd. Rear flashers work (blinking rapidly), front bulbs stay on, inside indicators also flash rapidly. Replaced control module under the dash. Did not help. What else could it be?


Hi there., when flashers/indicators work rapidly on the dashboard you should check whether it is the same on the actual bulds. Fadt flashing is usually a sign of a bulb failure somewhere. If everything is functioning ok externally I would consult a competent technician for a diagnosis.

Turn signals not working


It sounds like the turn signal module is defective. Sometimes, one electronic part will have an affect on another part. You can either visit your local HD dealer and spend a couple of hundred dollars for them to troubleshoot the problem or you can visit clymner.com and buy your own workshop service repair manual for about $30.

97 ford expedition. Turn signals work but shifter won't automatically turn off signals after turn is made. Must do so manually? Cause/solution?


There are some springs and plastic parts in there which are toggled by a shaft finger. Probably something plastic is broken.

Its not partial repair job, its possibke that you need to replace this multiswitch.

Keep us updated.

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 .

your local auto parts store can give you your specific information, as can the parts desk person at your local dealership or possibly even an aftermarket repair shop by using an electronic component locator manual. your local auto parts store will probably be the most willing and friendly.
