Right front turn signal not working, no power getting to socket.


Does the signal light on the same side work? If not you may need a Signal switch. Depending on the year you should be able to order one or most Autozones carry them in stock. I would stay away from a generic one that fits most. Try and get a OEM switch. One more thing there is a wiring harness that runs to the back and to the front. Trace your power wire back to the fuse box. use a 12 volt tester it looks like a ice pic with a bulb inside and a wire that you has a alligator clip on the end. Take the clip and ground it to a spot on your vehicle that does not have any paint on it or you will not get a good ground. The tester has a sharp point on it as you trace the wire ground your tester (they cost anywhere from 10.00 to 30.00 US dollars) and push the end into the middle of your wire if it has power the light will come on when it does not somewhere from where you tested it and the spot that did not light up in between the the two places is where the break is. Also I know this sounds elementary but turn the keys on and put the signal lever on the side that your pronlem is.
i hope this may help you,

How can I repair a malfunctioning left front signal light?


The flasher unit for the four ways is separate from the turn signal.
If the rear light is flashing fast means the front light is malfunctioning. Check all wiring from the dash to the light itself. I had one a wire was pinched and had broken

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.

Have a 1999 Chev. Suburban. Problem is with brake lights. Top panel (on roof) works but neither side panel works. Replaced circut boards in tail lights, new bulbs, and all fuses are good. What next?


WITH A GOOD FUSE TESTER, TEST ALL THE FUSES FUSEBOX UNDER THE HOOD & INSIDE THE VEHICLE. IF THE FUSES ARE ALL GOOD WITH THE TESTER YOU MUST HAVE A BAD BRAKE LIGHT SWITCH OR A BAD TURN SIGNAL SWITCH. THE BRAKE LIGHT CIRCUIT GOES UP THROUGH THE TURN SIGNAL SWITCH & THEN TO THE BRAKE LIGHTS. FIRST OF ALL IS THE BRAKE LIGHT SWITCH GOOD ? THE ORANGE WIRE FEEDS THE BRAKE LIGHT SWITCH, THE WHITE WIRE PUTS POWER TO THE TURN SIGNAL SWITCH, SO THE LIGHTS CAN BE USED AS TURN LIGHTS OR BRAKE LIGHTS. , PUT A TESTER IN THE WHITE WIRE & PRESS ON THE BRAKE PEDAL. IF THE TEST LIGHT LIGHTS UP, BRAKE LIGHT SWITCH IS GOOD, BY THE WAY THE BRAKE LIGHT FUSE MAY BE LABELED" STOP", THE FUSE LABELED" BRAKE" IS FOR THE ABS SYSTEM. TO CHECK THE TURN SIGNAL SWITCH FOR BRAKE LIGHTS, REMOVE THE PLASTIC COVER FROM UNDER THE STEERING WHEEL, PRESS ON THE BRAKE PEDAL, PUT THE TESTER IN THE SMALL YELLOW WIRE, THEN THE SMALL GREEN WIRE. IF THERE IS NO POWER IN EITHER WIRE, THE TURN SIGNAL SWITCH IS BAD.

Left turn signal flashing fast, bulbs are OK, can't find the flasher unit


you said lights are working fine on rear but generally when they flash fast there is a turn signal light out on the side they flash on. Did you look at the turn signal light on the front of the vehicle?

The driver side rear left turn signal will not flash, the front signal flashes very quickly, the right turn signals are fine. I replaced the pin tail and the bulb, and still not working


Check if you have fire at the centre pin of the light socket using a tester. If not, the wiring is shot somewhere. If you have fire, you replaced the dud bulb with another dud! (I know, it happened to me some time ago on my Chevy)
