The most likely cause is a burnt out front or rear bulb. The turn signal arrow that blinks when you turn it on should be lit on but not blinking, that would mean a bad bulb. check this first. Turn the blinker on , key on, and look for an unlit bulb. replace. easy stuff 1st.

hope this helps Mike

The fuse for a right turn signal on a 2001 Buick Park Avenue


The left an right turn signals get there power from same fuse ,HZDT/SG fuse 15amp in the left under hood fuse box. through the turn signal hazard flasher module. Here is how they work .
Turn Signal/Cornering Lamps
The HZDT/SIG fuse in the fuse block - underhood - left supplies battery positive voltage to the turn signal/hazard flasher module and have ground at G202. The turn signal lamps may only be activated with the ignition switch in the ON or ACCY position. The T/SIG fuse in the fuse block - underhood - left supplies battery positive voltage to the turn signal switch. When the turn signal switch is placed in either the left or right position, current flow is from the turn signal switch assembly to the turn signal/hazard flasher module. The turn signal/hazard flasher module then sends an on-off voltage signal to either the left or right turn signals and their instrument cluster (IPC) indicator. When the hazard switch is pressed, all the turn signal lamps will flash including both IPC turn signal indicators. The left turn signals have ground at G106, G400 and at G402. The right turn signals have ground at G105 and G400. The turn signal switch supplies battery positive voltage to the cornering lamps, the left cornering lamp has ground at G105 and the right cornering lamp has ground at G106.The turn signal switch or the turn / hazard flasher module is bad or there is a wiring problem. Go to you tube an check out a few videos on basic electrical testing ,then get a DVOM - digital volt ohm meter , an wiring diagram an trouble shoot the circuit . There may even be a video on test turn signal circuit .

1998 monte carlo brake lights dont come on


This is fairly easy to diagnose. Down by the brake pedal there is a switch. You may have to remove some trim panels to access it. There should be one wire with power all the time. There should be another wire that has power only when the brake pedal is depressed. If there is no power on any of the other wires with the brake pedal depressed than the switch is bad.

If there is power than the more common problem is the turn signal switch. I know it doesn't sound like it could be the problem but let me explain how it works. the turn signal and the brake use the same bulb. In order for the correct power source, brake lights or turn signals, to get to the correct bulb the turn signal switch is used. If you are not turning the power from the brake switch is routed through the turn signal switch and then sent to the two brake brake bulbs. If you are turning to the right power from the brake switch is cancelled to the right bulb and replaced by power from the turn signal flasher.

One quick way is to see if the third brake light is working. If it is you know the brake switch is working since power to the third brake light bypasses the turn signal switch.

Good Luck and let me know how it goes!

My right front turn signal not working the bulbs are good and so is the fuse but I don't have fire going to them it's a 2010 chevy 2500hd


You don't have fire , never heard it called that before ! Battery voltage , power but never fire ! An open CTSY fuse located in the I/P fuse block will affect the operation of the right front turn signal only
Turn Signal/Hazard Lamps When the turn signal switch is placed in either the left or right position, a ground signal is completed from the turn signal switch to the BCM. When the hazard flasher switch is activated, a ground signal is completed from the turn signal/hazard switch to the BCM. The BCM then sends an ON-OFF voltage signal through the fuses to the appropriate turn signal and side repeater (export only) lamps or to all of the turn signal fuses for hazard operation. The driver door switch and passenger door switch also receive voltage from the BCM turn signal supply voltage circuits for the mirror turn signals. The door switches have no function or control of the mirror turn signals other than a pass through connection for the circuits. The audio chime is also activated when the turn signals are ON. The instrument panel cluster (IPC) receives the signals to activate the turn signal indicators over the GMLAN serial data system. When the hazard switch is pressed, all turn signal lamps will flash including both IPC turn indicators.
Ground is applied at all times at G201 to the turn signal/multifunction switch. The turn signal lamps may only be activated with the ignition switch in the ON or START position. When the turn signal/multifunction switch is placed in either the TURN RIGHT or TURN LEFT position, ground is applied to the body control module (BCM) through either the right turn or left turn signal switch signal circuit. The BCM then applies a pulsating voltage to the front and rear turn signal lamps through their respective control circuits.

Left bleaker and break light not working. Turn signal works bleaks faster than right side.


Has the vehicle been in an accident on the left rear side. First check the bulb to be sure it is not defective, trade it out with the side that works properly to test. If the bulb works well then My thought are you may have a shorted wire. The turn signal flasher works by heat build up within the flasher the heat is caused by the load of the bulbs, the load heats the metal spring causing it to open the circuit then as quickly as it cools down the circuit closes again lighting the bulbs.
There is also a possibility of a defect in the turn signal mechanism on the steering column. The turn signal switch on many models does three different things on many models that use the same bulb element / or bulb for brake and turn on rear of vehicle. It controls the circuit for brake light by sending power both left and right side rear when turn signal is in neutral position then when turn signal is in left turn the switch cancels brake light power to left side rear and supplies flasher power to left side while maintaining brake light supply to the right side rear, and so on opposite when the right turn is chosen on turn signal switch. The turn signal indicators on the dash normally run off the same circuit as front turn signal bulb only which is also controlled by turn signal switch. Front has turn signals but no brake light.
I think there is an additional load on the left side rear turn circuit and it could be either a wire that is shorted or the turn signal switch if the same bulb element is used for both functions.
Often times if trailer lighting is connected the flasher will also blink a little faster because of the extra load of additional bulbs.

My right front turn signal doesn't work, I have replaced the bulb the right rear works fine


You would check the socket with a test light or meter to see if you have power and ground. If no power, the turn signal switch would be the next thing to check.

2010 chevy equinox right rear turn signal doesnt work, replaced bulb and still the same. front works, is there a fuse for the rear light and where is the fuse located.


RT/SIG fuse #11 15amp - I/P fuse box . Fuse Block - I/P
In the center of the instrument panel, beneath the right side of the radio, in back of the right side console access panel.
This fuse is power to the BCM , When you put on the right turn signal , this is a voltage signal to the BCM . With logic ( programming ) the BCM then controls the turn signal !
Turn Signal/Hazard Lamps
The body control module (BCM) is responsible for controlling the turn signals and hazard lamps. When the turn signal switch is placed in either the left turn or right turn position, the BCM receives a signal from the turn signal switch. The BCM then sends an on-off voltage signal to either the left or right turn signals and their instrument panel cluster (IPC) indicator. When the hazard switch is pressed, the BCM receives a signal from the hazard switch. The BCM then will send an on-off voltage signal to all the turn signal lamps. All the turn signal lamps will flash including both IPC turn signal indicators.
There could be a DTC- diagnostic trouble code stored in the BCM pointing to the problem ! I suggest you take your vehicle to the dealer or a ASE certified repair shop that has the diagnostic tools to find the problem . Just so you don't waste your money replacing parts that don't fix it.

Right rear turn signal will not work.


If it's a V6, 10A fuse 17 supplies power to the steering control module which contains the turn signal switch. The switch setting data is fed to the totally integrated power module, which is powered at all times, to generate right turn signal voltage. If the left turn signal is OK, there could be a defect in the TIPM that prevents it from sending 12V output via the WHT/YEL wire to the right lamp. Does the stop function work? The same lamp performs both functions as determined by by the TIPM but may not be implemented in the Avenger.

Right turn signal does not work, bulb don't light, but the four way flashers do...... Thanks


Howdy, No Big Deal, Follow this, Common Power To Left and Right Signal , orange wire to flasher relay for left black wire for right, there are two relays inside flasher module 1 the left and right signal share the other is for the hazards. The is a common ground for the signal lights and hazard so if one side works good ground if the hazard works good ground...maybe power wire from 320 dollar turn signal unit maybe 160 on ebay....hope this helps keep smiling.....Doug in Clermont, Florida
