,I suspect you have a bad flasher, it is usually located in the fuse box or near it. If this was helpful please leave me good feed back

SOURCE: 1998 Ford Explorer blinker problems

you need to go back over all the bulbs. Take each one out and put it back in making sure its working properly. Most likely a bulb is not grounding. I had this on a f-150 that took two days to track down. Good luck

Have you checked the contacts to make sure they have good contact with the bulb base? I have a 1995 Ford Contour. The turn signal went out. I replaced the bulb and it would work when it wanted to. I checked the contacts and sure enough they weren't making good contact with the bulb. I took a screwdiver and slightly bent the contacts a little. It has worked good ever since.

SOURCE: right read blinker/break light dont work, turn signal blinks rapidly

It's the bulb. There are two filliments in the bulb. One is for when you turn your lights on and the other is for breaking and blinker flashing. When the break filliment goes bad it causes the blinker to flash very rapidly. 100% the bulb. Change it and all will be good again. P.S. if it were a fuse none of the break lights or blinkers would work.

that vehicle has a desperate relay for the hazards which is why they work, you have a defective signal flasher sometimes called a signal relay, follow the noise to locate exactly where the part is, usually under driver side of dash, it is a very cheap part and easy to install.

There should be two flasher controls in your fuse box, one for the hazards and one for the blinkers. If replacing the flasher does not work, a bad ground at the signals can cause this problem.

1996 Buick Regal. Blinker Issues


Hello,
I know it sounds strange but I would first check the bulbs and then check the hazard switch. The hazard switch is also the flasher unit. It fails and there are alot of stsange sinarios.

I hope this helps,

My right blinkers wont work


well rule out the flasher unit first by replacing it... cheaper to replace that and rule it out then replacing the switch and finding out it was the flasher..
