What you speak of as to the left blinker doesn't flash, yet the instrument cluster shows the green arrow (to the left), and yet that and the left turn signal lights do not flash, appears to be a simple burned out bulb. If one of your left turn signal bulbs are burnt out, then the #552 Flasher Unit in your fuse box is NOT the cause. It's the "Amperage" not being correct to the flasher unit. Place the parking brake on and start your vehicle. Put the left turn signal on and check to see ALL the bulbs are illuminated for the left turn signal. If you find one bulb that is not illuminated, then replace the bulb. It should be an 1157 bulb, but in the front it could be a 1157 Amber bulb dependent on whether your turn signal lens is clear or yellow.

If you still have difficulty finding the dead bulb, turn on the right turn signal and see which bulbs are illuminated and this will give you an idea as to which bulb on the left side isn't working, or turn on your Emergency Flashers which will turn on both the left and right side lamps and see which bulb is not lit up.

I hope this Helps,

Turn on your HAZARD blinkers and go around the car and see which lights are not blinking, and replace the bulb.

What would cause the blinker to blink very fast and the left rear blinker doesn't work.


You obviously have a bad connection somewhere in the taillight. Some trucks it is a common problem and the taillight circuit board is the problem.

Left blinker is fast front blinker light working left rear blinker light not working.


When a turn signal bulb is blinking fast, it is an indicator that a bulb is bad in the system. Replace the left rear turn signal bulb, then see if the left front blinker has gone back to normal. This is most likely your problem. Let me know if it is still a problem and i will help you fix it. Good luck

Saturn 2002 VUE Turn Signal not working properly.


You need to check your left side turn/park lamp bulbs for correct part # & installation.If that checks out you deffinetely have a ground problem.When you have other lights blinking with you turn signals you have either a bulb incorrect or a bad/poor ground.If bulbs check out check your forward lamp harness ground.Hope this helps

Fast Blinker


Usually a fast turn signal means that there is a light out. You should probably check all of your lights, including back-up lights, and turn signals. If there is one out then replacing the burnt out bulb should fix the problem.

BLINKERS NOT WORKING


Ok this a way different problem than i thought it was first thing to look at is the relays and fuses and connectors to make sure they are not loose, pull them out and reconnect them. Engine running = vibration. Engine not running = no vibration. If thats good your left light blinker may be shorted to your constant power. Your right blinker may have an intermittent open. I looked at turn signal flashers online they are about $10 each, maybe swap em out then return if it does not fix it. It really sounds like a wiring problem though so look at the back side of where the light is connector and tell me what you find if anything
Good luck
