Answers :

The turn signal switch in the steering column has a short in some models. Have someone watch your brake lights and move the 4 way flasher on top of the column from left to right without deploying the switch for the 4 ways. If your brake lights flash ,the harness needs to be replaced if they are still available. Harness around 300.00 plus labor.

I have a 1991 Volvo 240s recently I had to replace the circuit board on the left side taillight assembly because the connecting parts for the turn signal were worn out. Upon doing so the turn signal and one of the brake lights worked however the rest of the lights in the assembly stopped. I replaced the fuse and checked all the bulbs so I am really at loss for what to do because the lights on the other side and the headlights do work. What is wrong with the lights on the left side, and how can I

2005 Scion XA rear passenger side turn signal bulb stopped working and indicator started blinking rapidly. I changed the bulb and still the same. Checked fuse and it's ok. Switched the working driver side turn signal bulb with housing to the non-working passenger side and it wouldn't work there. After putting new bulbs in both sides (since I bought a pair I figured "why not"), I disconnected the car battery to "reset" the power in the car, and when it turned back on it was still the same.

2006 Ford Escape. I replaced the rear right turn signal bulb, and it worked OK for an hour. Then it stopped again. So I took the back fixture out again ... Bulb OK, so I put it back together. Worked fine for an hour, then stopped. One more time it has worked, then NOT worked. What do I check next?


You can check the fuse for the light to make sure it is not blown or broken as this could lead to you experiencing such a problem.On the other hand, it is very likely that the bulb is having a partial contact with its housing. In other words, i ... Ford Escape

I've got a 2000 mitsubishi galant 4 cylinder. Speedometer, tachometer, oil, and temp gauges don't light up, all fuses in the car are still in working order, bulbs are not burnt out, I checked.

What could cause my right front turn signal to not work some of the time. The bulb was checked and even replaced but did not solve the problem. Each time the car is turned off, the signal will work for a few flashes then just stop. The side and rear signals work just fine.

2002 F-250. My back turn signal stopped working but the bulb was still good and the fuse was still good. Then all of the turn signals went out and when I checked the fuse again it had blown. I replaced the fuse and it blows when I turn the left signal or hazard lights on. I went through 5 fuses in about 3 minutes. what could be wrong?


You have a short somewhere in the wiring for the left blinker, which also explains the fuse blowing when the hazards are actuated. The easiest way to check this is, with the engine off, take a multimeter, set to ohms, and touch the red lead to one si ... 2002 Ford F250 Super Duty SuperCab

My taillights, rear side lights, and instrument panel illumination lights are not working. The brake and turn signal lights are working.

I would think that if the ground is not present then you wouldn't get the lights to operate at all, so I would more suspect the switch by the symptoms that you have described, or a wire harness has lost contact behind the light switch, I would say yo ... 1999 Ford Taurus
