SOURCE: Turn signals

My car is more modern 04 but I had a similar problem. Solution to mine was replacing ur turn/tail lights. Check the actual plug it could have corroded terminals. For whatever reason it was causing the indicator to dim so much it stopped working when Lights were turned on.

Right front side turn signal does not work replaced all bulbs and checked fuses headlight flashers work when hazards are on front to back except driverside turn signal ,in dash right stays solid left


I don't believe it would be a bad ground for just one light. It could be a wire, a socket connector, or the bulb socket itself. See if the wire has power at the socket when signaling left, with key on. If there is power, probably a bad socket or connector. If no power, check for power coming from flasher-the wire going to front left, or driver's side. If you have power from the flasher, but nothing at the socket, the wire has probably broken.
Good luck.

2008 Chevy Cobalt front right turn signal is not working. Back right signal blinks fast. Left signals work just fine. I tried replacing the bulb and it did not work. Do I need to replace the...


No - headlight ok.
The reason that the Right turn signal blinks fast is that there is half the normal load (resistance)
on the right side, since the Right front turn signal isn't working.
Since you replaced the Right front turn signal bulb, your problem lies in the bulb socket or
the wiring to the socket.
(1) try cleaning out the socket - there's probably a contact problem in the socket. You
may need to squeeze the contacts together to provide good contact to the socket contact.
(2) if contacts inside the socket are ok, try back-probing the socket - to make sure that the
socket is getting 12V DC to light the bulb. Replacing a bulb socket is easy, and commonly done.
Any auto parts dtore should be able to sell you a new socket - its just a matter of cutting out the
old one, and then splicing in the new one. Most shops will use small wire nuts, buried under several
wraps of E-tape (electrical tape).
(3) if bulb AND socket ok, you have the worst problem known to man - a wiring fault. In this case,
you'll want to run a new wire from the flasher module (under the dashboard) to the turn signal.

Turn signal doesn't work when headlights on


It sound like you have a grounding problem, does the headlight on the left seem dimmer than the right? Check the ground wires and the light sockets for corrosion.

1992 chevy s10 no brake lights or turn signals


Check the front and rear (although probably the rear) turn signal bulb socket for corrosion and/or water intrusion. If you find corrosion attempt to clean (but you will probably have to replace the socket and bulb). For water intrusion you will probably have to replace the break lamp assembly.

1966 chevy turn signal does not work


check the light socket and the wires leading to the socket.The contacts inside are probably nasty looking green or have a white powdery looking corrosion on them,also check to make sure the bulb fits in the socket properly,it could just be worn out.The switch in the column could also have a bad or broken contact,but start with the simple stuff first.

Signal flasher replacement for 94 impala ss


It is possible that one or more bulb is the wrong type. Make sure that all turn signal bulbs are the correct ones and have the same number on them (i.e. 1156;1157 etc.) You can look this up at an auto parts store, or have a sales representative look it up for you. If they are all the same, check all the light sockets for white residue, rust, and corrosion. Also check the wiring for frayed or burned (melted) insulation. Replace any damaged wires or sockets, or bulbs.
I hope this information helps you in fixing your lights. Thank you.
