If they both come on, front and rear, but won't flash, then the most likely problem is the winker relay. When you flick the turn signal switch and they sometimes flash, that's because you're working the relay repeatedly and jarring it into action. Try a new realy (the box that makes them flash) and you should be fine.

2011 Ford Edge Rear Left Turn Signal not working - Bulb and Socket confirmed good. Fuse Controlling both Left Front and Rear turn light confirmed good. Front Left turn light working fine.


The flasher is under the dash.If you turn on the signal listen for it's location.Turn on your 4 way flasher and see if the left rear light is flashing.If it's not then replace the bulb.If it still does'nt work after replacing the bulb check if there is power to the socket. Use a probe light.If no power to the socket.There is a break in the wire or worse the signal switch may be the culprit

My left turn signal was flashing fast. I checked bulb in back left. Turn signal good but bulb below it was out. I changed that one but turn signal still flashing fast. all other bulbs look good. ??


If the front and rear bulbs flash fast also, replace the hazard switch or you could live with it. As they are working. If one doesn't work, check grounds. I just run a new ground, much easier than cutting open the harness to find the break.

1991 Nissan Pathfinder left turn signal comes on when I apply the brake


check that all your bulbs are correct and are making contact. this commonly happens when a wrong bulb is installed in a socket. the other reason this happens is a bad ground, and one bulb uses another as a ground path. I would start at the rear left light and check that everything is good there, then move on to the front. 99 percent of these kinds of problems are at the lights themselves.

I need to find the flasher relay for a grand marquis 2001 .does it has one? My turn signals wont work I can hear the sound but don't even flash


Yes, it does have a flasher, although it may be a combined unit with the hazard flashers relay. So you hear the clicking of the flasher relay? That seems to indicate the relay is working properly. Have you checked the bulbs and the turn signal fuse? Any turn signal bulbs light up anywhere, front or back?
How about your brake lights, do they work? Your car may have separate, stand alone turn signals in the rear, but many American cars use the same bulb and same filament on the bulb for the brake lights and turn signals. If your merc is like this and the brake lights work, then the bulb must be good.
Turn on the hazard flashers and see if all bulbs work and flash at each corner of the car. This would be the same bulb as for the turn signals. If they work, it could be a bad turn signal switch, may even be the flasher relay somehow malfunctioning, and in a few cases, a bad hazard switch can affect the turn signal switch. Check fuses and bulbs first. If you have any type of body control module that controls lights and other accessories, you may have to investigate that. I know I'm not being very helpful, just throwing out a few suggestions. Good luck.

The left rear turn signal on my 1998 Aurora will not flash. According to the Owners manual the correct lamp is a 3057. I have tried 2 new 3057 bulbs they light up but won't flash. The right turn...


Normally, it means either the front or the rear bulb is burned out. If front and rear bulbs are good, and that means both lamp filaments in both bulbs are good. It could be the flasher, a bad ground, a bad bulb socket, or the turn signal switch.

Front signal light not working and rear signal lights flashing fast on 1999 intrigue


Your front turn signal socket is shot. Buy a new one at the dealer for about 30.00. It will fix it. You may be able to clean it and wiggle it to get it to work. But it wont last very long. I had the same problem. Replaced the socket and it is fine. Note: If one side is bad the other side it not far behind. Probably 2 or 3 months it will go also. Good Luck.

No rear brake light / turn signals on 2001 Chevy Cavalier


The problem is the turn signal/headlight/hazard switch assembly on the steering column which the brake light wiring runs through. The part is easy to change and cost about $50 at most parts stores
