I have a 2006 honda oddyssey and when I turn on the headlights, the right side blinker does not flash and the left side blinker stays lit. The hazards will not work at all with the headlights on.
What could be the problem and how much will it cost to repair?

Re: Blinkers will not work when headlights are on.
You have a left side turn signal out in the front or back replace bulb the reason why your bilnkers wont blink is because your flasher relay is bad the relay will be located n the fuse panel under the drivers dash any auto parts store should have the light and the relay in stock replace both of those and youll be in buisness

Hazards work only when lights are off. Left signal light stays lit on the dash and does not blink and is stuck on (lit up) when lights are lit. If I place hazards on while lights are on only right side flashes and whole dash lights flash too... I replaced the flasher relay and it still does not work. Suggestions anyone? Thanks!
Plain and simple...Your turn signal circuit is shorted to your headlamp circuit. What USUALLY causes this is an incorrect light bulb has been installed in the vehicle or the light bulb was installed incorrectly. There are other possible causes of these circuits being shorted together, but 99 out of 100 of the times that I have seen this it is either because somebody just replaced a bulb or a bulb socket melted somwhere on the car. Be sure to check both the front AND rear bulbs.
If it has a combination switch,headlights,wipers,turn signal all on one lever,then it is the problem.Unless the bulb in that signal light is bad,the filiment in the bulb can melt down and cause a back feed.Try changing that one bulb first.
What may have happened is either the headlights wiring or the parking lights wiring somewhere along the wiring fused to the left turn signals wiring. Depending on if the turn signals go on when you put the parking lights on or the headlights on.
If the signals come on when you turn on the headlights than you only need to locate the light green wire that comes off the left turn signal harness.
Next follow that wire the entire way back to the firewall looking for another wire fused to that wire as you go.
If there are no signs of this you need to continue looking on the other side of the firewall all the way back to the turn signal and hazard flasher unit which is a black box that connects to a black harness located next to a grey harness behind the knee bolster.
But if the signals come on when you turn on the parking lights than you will also need to check the wiring from the rear left signal and follow that light green wire all the way back to the turn signal and hazard flasher unit.
This should fix your problem, but if not than your problem may lay within the the wiring between the turn signal/hazard switches and the turn signal and hazard flasher unit.
Also you may have a burnt circuit in the junction block. This block is where the light green from the rear left signal and front left signal meet. Don't have a description but if you cannot find it let me know and I will go out to the yard and look myself and let you know.
Did you double-check to be sure the fuses are intact and not blown? If they are OK, it could be a turn signal relay or the switch itself (I have firsthand experience with the switch failing with respect to headlight operation, so there's no reason to believe that it couldn't fail for turn signal operation as well).
If you find that it's the switch, reply here and I can walk you through its replacement - it's about a five minute job.
