Computers. the signals box expects resistance of 2 tail/signal/light bulbs per side. only one filament out will cause problems. look for simple solution or dealer will charge almost 2000.00 dollars for new sognals headlight control box. After they install it and realize they did not fix it they keep looking finding a simple busted filament and still charge you for the box.

Where is the emergency flasher relay located on 2013 Rogue?


Here is what the service manual says. Looks like it is not a flasher relay but a function of the body control module.

TURN SIGNAL AND HAZARD WARNING LAMP SYSTEMSystem Description OUTLINE Turn signal lamp and the hazard warning lamp is controlled by combination switch reading function and the flasher control function of BCM.
TURN SIGNAL LAMP OPERATION - BCM detects the combination switch condition by the combination switch reading function. - BCM supplies voltage to the right (left) turn signal lamp circuit when the ignition switch is turned ON and the turn signal switch is in the right (left) position. BCM blinks the turn signal lamp.
HAZARD WARNING LAMP OPERATION BCM supplies voltage to both turn signal lamp circuit when the hazard switch is turned ON. BCM blinks the hazard warning lamp.
TURN SIGNAL INDICATOR LAMP AND TURN SIGNAL SOUND OPERATION - BCM transmits the turn indicator signal to the combination meter with CAN communication while the turn signal lamp and the hazard warning lamp are operating. - Combination meter outputs the turn signal sound with the integrated buzzer while blinking the turn signal indicator lamp according to the turn indicator signal.
HIGH FLASHER OPERATION (FAIL-SAFE) - BCM detects the turn signal lamp circuit status by the terminal current value. - BCM increases the turn signal lamp blinking speed if the bulb or harness open is detected with the turn signal lamp operating. NOTE: The blinking speed is normal while operating the hazard warning lamp.

I have no signal lights, left or right, on my 2000 Oldsmobile Intrigue. I was having a problem with a front bulb not contacting properly making the right signal flash rapidly. I left it flashing while


Check if your emergency flashers still work. You possibly need a new flasher. Some cars have separate flashers for turn signals and emergency flashers, but some they are both together. If your emergency flashers still operate leave them on and find the flasher (follow the clicking noise the flasher makes) and see if there is another flasher right next to it. swap with the emergency flasher and see if your turn signals work again. If so, replace the faulty flasher.

1970 beetle how to fix flashers


1. Do your emergency flashers work?
Check all your fuses, make sure they are getting a good contact.
If your emergency flashers work, it may be a faulty turn signal switch.
If your emergency flashers work that will eliminate the flasher. The one flasher works both turn and emergency signals.

I have no signal lights


Do the emergency flashers work? If they do the turn signal flasher relay is probably bad.There should be 2 one for turn signals and one for emergency flashers. What you can do if emergency flashers are working is turn them on and see where the clicking is coming from.The 2 flashers are usually very close to each other.

Blinkers wont work.all my lights turn on flashers work just no turn signals only front side markers what can it be?


This vehicle should have 2 flasher relays one that operates the emergency flashers and one operating the turn signals.Easiest way to locate these would be to turn the emergency flashers on and listen to where the clicking is coming from usually the flasher are pretty close to each other.Once you find the flasher unit you can swap the flasher unit that is working with the one that is not and if the turn signals work after that you will need to purchase another flasher relay.

I need to find the emergency flasher light flasher so that i can replace it on my 85 cj7


Pretty sure there are two flashers on the fuse panel. the one that doesn't make any noise with the turn signals operating is the emergency flasher.

1995 F150 the turn signals do not work, but


Look in the fuse panel and the turn signal flasher is the big round most likely yellow or silver in the corner of fuse panel. The emergency flasher is in the back side of fuse panel right directly behind the turn signal flasher.
Remove the emergency flasher and install it in place of the turn signal flasher and see if this corrects the problem and if so get a new flasher. If this does not correct it problem will most likely be the multi-function switch.

If you have no turn signal operation check the turn signal flasher unit. More often than mot this will be the problem. Your emergency flashers operate on another circuit with another flasher unit. The flasher units are very cheap to purchase and easy to gain access too.
