Your turn signal flasher behind the glove box keeps flashing and only goes off when you apply the brake pedal all signals and lights work how do you fix this?
It's easy, just go to a gasoline station and ask them to check the blinker.

The relay that handles the turn signals is separate from the relay that handles the hazards. Most likely you have a burned out turn signal relay. Most likely the relay is lo…cated in your fuse panel and is a very inexpensive item to replace. turn signals and hazards have separate flasher cans both look the same and are generally in the fuse box replace the hazard flasher can. they cost about 2 dollars at auto store HOUNDDAWG ADDS: There may be a lamp with one of the turn signal elements burned out. If one is burned out turn signals may not work even though the lamp appears to be working when the lights are on. Otherwise replace emergency flasher or possibly turn signal switch in steering wheel. gaffer0118 adds: I had the same problem on my 2003 Saturn L200. When I cycled the Hazard Signal/switch for about 30 seconds, both left and right turn signals once again worked!!
How do you fix the problem of the brake lights and turn signals and emergency flashers not working when all fuses and bulbs are good?
%REPLIES% The WD40 solution I had the same problem on my 98 Grand Marquis. A Linclon Mercury mechanic told me the problem was most likely in the hazard flasher switch on top… of the steering column. He recommended I spray WD 40 around the switch and push it down *and let it pop up several times and wiggle it around. It worked for me - problem solved. Apparently, over the years gunk finds it way in there, be it dirt, liquids, etc. Furthermore, he said there is no "flasher" you can replace as you may remember in older vehicles. Good luck. The rest or these posts are simply testimonials for the first answer . The WD-40 squirted in the emergency flasher switch worked in my 97 ford mustang. Thanks so much for the info. . Thanks for saving me the coins to pay a mechanic. I have a 97 Ford Van and the question fit my problem to the tee. The solution also fixed my problem. . My wife push the flasher and that started all the problems. I took your advise and it worked for me too on my 1995 Grand Marquis. Thanks for your imput. . I have a '99 Ford F-150 4.8 Liter V8, and this seems to have fixed the problem. It began as an intermittant problem and has gotten progressively worse over the past couple of months. I thought it was only affecting my turn signals, but I later discovered it also involved my brake lights. Moving the emergency flasher switch up and down a number of times solved the problem. Thank you! . This also worked for me I have a 1999 Ford Expedition. I moved the hazardous lights up and down and the problem was solved. . I thought I had checked the relevant fuses on my Ranger truck, but missed the one for brake-Emergency Flashers. My flashers were on - the button in the extended position when the fuse blew. Because the fuse went I didn't know the flasher was still in the on position. Therefore the turn signals and brake lights didn't work. It wasn't until I got the flasher in the off position that the turn signals started working again. . hey it worked for me too! i almost brought her in to the vultures till i found this. thanks!!!! . Worked on 1998 Lincon Continental...moved hazard warning switch in steering column up and down....worked great! THANKS! . The WD40 worked like a charm. I have been trying to fix this problem for 2 hours. I sprayed WD40 and problem solved. Thanks so much. . It works , don'ask me how , but it works. . Just used WD4O on the hazard switch of a 97 Aerostar whose blinkers have not worked for months. The switch now works freely, and the blinkers work, too. . I had a right front turn signal not working, sometimes. Then the left front stopped working, sometimes. Replaced lamps and still no joy. Tried the hazard flasher switch a few times and it started working but only sometimes. Sprayed WD40 into the hazard switch, exercised it a few times, and all OK now. Many thanks to the original poster. . Good Morning! Let me echo the repair of the WD40. I had the same symtems of turn signals, flashers not working. Checked all the fuses. Went to Auto Zone to seek advise, They called FORD for me (really nice guys here in Warren, Pa) Ford pointed them/me to a light processcor that costs in excess of $200. A dealer only part) Auto Zone then suggested for me to access the web and seek out like problems which I did. Thank you to the original poster of this issue and Auto Zone. Several squirts and I worked the switch...and presto...everything started working again! No cost at all to fix this prob. I already has the WD40! . It worked for me too on a 1997 Ford Thunderbird! Took me 2 days of checking things and not being able to use the care before I "Google'd" the problem. The Internet is great and so is your web site! You should have an option for people to pay something if you site helped them. This was worth at least $50 (and more if I would have taken it somewhere). . Thank you VERY MUCH !!! The WD-40 solution worked GREAT !!!!!!!!!!! . Thank you, worked for my 1997 F-150!
Brake lights don't work with headlights on only right side brake lights partially with headlights off Right turn signal in rear works always left turn signal flashes quickly always Any advice?
You have some problems with electrical connections. Most likely the ground wire of the tail lights. Also, the left light may be burned out or have a POSITIVE wire connection p…roblem.
What causes both turn signal lights to flash when either signal is turned on and to stop when brake is applied only when lights are on?
Answer . It depends on the car. Some cars require that you turn on the turn signals to make the 4-way flasher work. If that's the case with your vehicle, make sure the eme…rgency flashers aren't on.\n. \nOtherwise, it's probably a problem with the turn signal switch.

If all the fuses are good, then most likely the brake light switch right on the brake pedal inside the car. Check that.
What is wrong with your 2000 Pontiac Montana when you press the brake pedal and put on your turn signal the lights all alternately flash?
There is a ground fault in one of your wire connections into yourtaillight. It is usually a connector for your rear light assembly.Remove the plugs from the tail light assembl…y starting with theside that blinkers flash fast when brakes are applied. You willfind that the pin to your ground will have a blackish tint to thepin (on the brake light assembly). Clean this pin and thecorresponding plug recepticle. I added a tiny piece of tin foil tothe plug in the ground pin hole to ensure a tight connection. Plugin the unit while not installed and see if that eliminates theblinker lights from coming on on the dash when the brakes areapplied and the blinker is on.

What would cause the turn signal lights on a 1992 Explorer to light up but not flash The emergency flashers work but the turn signals will not flash?

What fuse controls the brake lights on a 96 Chevy 1500 All lights and turn signals work except no brake lights when brake pedal is pushed?
I'm not exactly sure which fuse it is, but it doesn't sound like a fuse to me. I would check the switch on the pedal, just simply short acrost it from terminal to terminal wit…h a screwdriver, if the brake lights come on, the switch on the pedal is bad, if they don't then it probably is a fuse.
When any turn signal on a vehicle flashes more rapidly than normal, then that means that a signal light on the side that is blinking is burned out. It could be either the fron…t of back. You should check your signals to see if one is burnt out. The brake however should not affect this - you could have a short.
The signals and the emergency flashers have separate circuits, separate fuses, separate flasher relays. Start with checking the fuses, the bulbs, the signal flasher relay and …wiring and if it still doesn't work it may be the signal switch is bad.
Some vehicles have a master electical control switch mounted on the steering column that controls all those functions
When you turn on your headlights in your 1997 freightliner century your driver side marker lights brighten and wont flash if you signal left but when lights are off all signals and brake lights work?
Did you replace these with LED bulbs, by chance? If so, you need toadd resistors to the wiring in order for them to function properly.LEDs draw much less amperage than incande…scent lights do, not tomention that all of the LEDs in an LED bulbs run on the samecircuit, whereas a dual filament incandescent bulb has separatecircuits for each filament.
