BLINKERS QUIT WORKING OR WORK WHEN CAR IS NOT IN MOTION

Posted / edited by AnonymousUser on : 15-01-2018

Answers :

What do you mean not in motion. Are they both lights, one light, running engine not running. I would suggest looking at the connetor to the signal light fixture making sure its all the way locked in or even for a loose power or ground wire at the connector. Possibly the relay to the blinker is intermittent. I'm giving you a generalized solution because i'm not sure exactly what is wrong. Do you have the light on the dash board working and the signal light is not when it stops working do yo hear clicking. If you hear clicking for signal light is it fast or slow.

My left signal arrow and blinker quit working. I took it to my auto guy and he replaced the bulb but it still doesn't work. I don't have anyone to ask so I have to see what they find. Will it be a huge problem? I really need my signal light. People blow the horn at you in my town if you do anything they don't like. I don't but I don't want to have anything wrong with my car - its a great car! Thanks Linnie Todd


It won't be a fuse because the same fuse operates both sides, the most likely thing, if both the front and rear are affected, is the switch not making contact when you select left indicator. ... Buick Century

I drive a 2006 nissan maxima and while i was driving it the TRACTION CONTROL light, ABS light, BRAKE light, and the SLIP light all came on and my speedometer quit working as did my heater and the letter "D" that shows which gear im in quit working.

My 2006 suby's battery went totally flat (my fault). I re-charged it overnight and all things electrical are working fine. The car idles when stationary, but when in motion it stalls when I approach intersections, half way through a roundabout, turning sharp corners, etc. Quite dangerous as, of course, I lose power steering. I've been told it may have something to do with the computer settings being 'out of whack' after the flat battery. Its not a clogged throttle line.


Next time your suby looses battery power your going to have to disconnect the battery when charging it,And yes it the computer out of whack its the long fuel trim that you removed reset it, idle the car part throttle it maybe around 1300 RPM then let ... Subaru Forester

I have a 99 ford explorer. My blinkers/hazzards are not working. When i turn on the parking lights, it does turn on the blinker lights. So I know it has to be a fault from the switch to the lights. They worked when I first bought it a couple months ago, but then quit. There was a buzzing noise in the relay under the dash but it has quit now too. I tested the relay on a 99 explored and it works fine. I looked at the wiring harness that goes into the blinker switch and a white and red striped wire


Yes, that is the problem with that white wire; it is the power- in source for the blinkers. A new harness may not be necessary, unless there really is a clip and you can't replace it. But on many of those connectors, there is no extra clip or retaine ... Cars & Trucks

My right turn signal quit then it worked and the left one quit, they both worked, and now neither work. The hazards work and I am sure it's not a bulb given how the quit. My question is whether there is a turn signal flasher on this car that I should try to replace before I go directly to replacing the switch. Or would it be some other problem?

I took my 2006 Mazda 6 in for an oil change yesterday. The mechanic said when he tried to start the car to back it out of the garage, the car would not start. He checked the battery and said it had a bad cell. He jumped the car to start it so we could take it home and I would replace the battery. While driving home, we found the auto down function of the power windows quit working and the drivers door switch for the passenger front power window will not work.

I have a 2008 Chev Impala LT. As long as the car is in a forward motion, the heater works fine. However, as soon as the forward motion is stopped, the heater immediately starts blowing cold air and will not blow warm air until the car is in forward motion again. Also, the engine operating temperature can be up to normal and the car still has to be driven at least six miles before warm air starts coming out of the heater vents. Norris
