Blinker trouble

Postby Chazzman » Sat Jun 07, 2003 12:42 am

For some reason I just noticed that my left turnsignal isn't working at all. it doesn't light at all, even when I turn on my hazard lamps the only thing that lights is the right hand side.
Not even my lamp in the gauge cluster is lighting up.
What gives?

assuming you've checked bulbs and fuses, i would start looking at the wires..

Check your blinker fluid you might be running low:D  Actually I have a similiar problem, my turn signals work but when I turn on my hazards the front right doesnt go on with the rest of the lights. But it works with the turn signal. :rock:

I have a similar problem. With my 4 ways on they all flash. my passenger front and rear blinkers work. the problem is my drivers side turn signals will come on but will not flash. I have changed both of my flashers (hazard and turn). I have bulbs to put in tomorow hope it doesn't rain. I really hate testing wires.

The 1157 and 2057 bulbs are dual filament bulbs. One goes to the brake lights and one for the turn signals. I don't remember which is which.
If a filament has opened it can cause the probems that are being talked about.
Also a grounded bulb receptacle can cause these problems. Maybe a can of contact cleaner would come in handy? :)

A common problem is the turn signal switch assembly.  It's the part in the steering wheel that has all the contacts to complete the circuits.  They are about $30 from any parts store.

For me, my 4 ways would work fine, but both the signals would just stay solid in the instument cluster, so I changed this part and now everything works

I had the same thing happen on my 91 GT. Both sides would come on but wouldn't blink. At first the dealer said it was the steering column switch. Way too expensive to fix so I lived with manual blinkers for a year. I finally decided enuough was enough and ripped everything apart. I found that the connections inside the bulb sockets were covered in some type of yellowish goop.Some kind of conductive gel I'm told. I used a Q-tip to clean the connections and have't had a problem since.

Thanks for the help!! I had a loose wire on my passenger rear turn signal. Works like a charm now.
