2.0T. Where is the indicator/blinker relay?

After three or four blinks, the left rear light stops. This is the case whether I am using the indicator or emergency flashers.

SOURCE: 1991 Ford E150 turn signals do not work,emergancy flashers flash constantlly unless the flasher relay is unplugged from fuse block

Hi,

If I understand you right based on your post/description, the signal lights would still turn on even if any or both of the flasher relays are removed. Should this be the case, then the signal lights are not getting the power from the flasher relays but from the brake light circuit.

Perhaps your concern is not with any of the flasher, but simply missing or loose ground more particularly with the rear lights. Perhaps you could try determining which of the wires for the brake lights and signal lights (as they come out of the light assembly) would be ground . A test and even possibly a temporary workaround is to hard wire a second ground connection from the determined ground wire of the lights and attach it to any conveniently located bolt or screw to the body. it may be to your advantage to do this on all the rear lights assembly.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

SOURCE: No turn signals or emergency blinkers

I had the same problem twice before. Solved it the same way both times. In my case it was the Hazard switch at the top of the steering column. It was stuck. I knew it was that because the signal lights had been functioning perfectly until I parked my car alongside the road with the hazard lights on to do some nighttime fishing and sip a little white lightnin'. (just kiddin' about the white lightnin')

When I got back in my car to go, I turned off the hazard lights but I had no turn signal lights! So I kept pushing that hazard button up and down for about 30 times with my left turn signal arm down until it started working again. So after having this happen to me twice, I learned a valuable lesson: Don't ever use hazard signals in this car.

SOURCE: Indicators not flashing on Audi TT

i believe the audi uses two relays for the turn signals and hazzard lights so it would appear the turn relay has failed. it should be located under the dash near the steer column.... seems to me me they have some shielding under the dash so it may be hard to get to.

You may have two relays one for hazards and one for turn indicators.

Alpha Romeo 156 My Left hand indicator light stays on continually, does not flash. and when I turn the hazard light switch on both indicators continually glow.


Generally speaking, symptoms of a bad or failing turn signal bulb are usually the culprit...in your case, either it's the front left or rear bulb. Varies for different vehicle makes...common signs include:
  1. turn signal light staying on solid
  2. or blinking very fast
  3. or either sides of the bulbs stop blinking altogether.
To test this, make sure you reconnect everything you disconnected.
Turn the left signal light on; go to the front of the vehicle, is the turn signal bulb illuminated? If it lights up, even though it is not blinking obviously the bulb is okay. If it doesn't, replace it- problem solved. You'll do the same procedure for the rear turn signal Is that lit up? If not replace the bulb and the problem is solved.
Another common failure is when the turn signal blinks really fast, same procedure as mentioned above.
If both bulbs for the left side and right side illuminate but don't blink, the problem is in the steering column turn signal switch.
If the left or right side blinkers don't work properly at all...then check the integrated hazard warning/turn signal flasher relay- that may be defective; again, that's usually the case if both sides of the signal light don't work.
If you are blowing any fuses related to the flasher system, you have an electrical overload in the turn signal circuitry.

Sounds like you may have the wrong bulb installed causing feedback to both circuits

Left turn signal blinking fast in front of vehicle, but not blinking in rear of vehicle 2004


That is an indicator that the bulb in the rear is burned out. Most vehicles built since 1995 use this method to tell owners that a blinker is out at a location on that side of the vehicle. Replace the bulb in the rear and it should work fine.

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

I have a 2006 dodge caravan and the rear turn signals will not work. fronts work fine, headlights and fog lights work fine. I checked all fuses and bulbs and none are burnt out. the turn lights on the dash...


Hello Durant.
Your rear signal lamps are turned on by the body control module (BCM).
You could have some broken wires from the BCM to the rear signals or the BCM isn't providing power to them. The BCM must be getting a signal input because the front ones are functional.
If you want to trace the wires here are the colors you are looking for.
Left rear wire is white/dark green.
Right rear wire is white/brown.
You may need to have your BCM scanned to verify.
If you would like more information to solve this yourself ask me.

Blinkers don't work: When I use my blinkers to


The right blinker issue sounds like you have one bulb out either front or rear check them both. The left blinker issue sounds like either bulbs(both out) or fuse, or worst case blinker switch has gone bad on left turn only so not picking up the signal.

The rear/front blinker lights sometimes flicker fast then slow. What is this that is happening?


Usually when a turn signal 'blinks' faster than usaul it means you have a bulb out. Turn on your hazard flashers aka "four-ways" then wlk around your car to find the culprit.

Hope this helps!

Left blinker blinks faster than the right. which the back left blinker does not work and front left blinks really fast.Right blinker works normal?


Flasher relays relies on bulb wattage for the speed of the blink.
You probably just have a blown bulb in the left rear blinker.:)
