How do you fix your turn signal if it works when you turn the hazards on but it does not when you want to turn?

You need to replace the turn signal relay. It should be right next to the hazard (emergency) relay. Turn on the hazards and follow the clicking sound under the driver side dashboard. Once you've located it, if you touch it you can feel the hazard relay working. The other relay is for the turn signal. It's a small round canister. It's just a matter of removing and replacing.

I had the same problem with my 97 Accord. My hazards worked, but the turn signals did not. I thought it was actuallly the signal arm. In the end, it had nothing to do with the signal relay, arm, or bulbs. I just changed a fuse located in the fuse box next to my brake pedal (it was bruned out) and it worked. I don't know what kind of car you have, but if it's a Honda this is probably the problem.

Both turn signals work when they want to. The hazzard lights work just fine. All bulbs are great. The turn signal indicator will flash inside the car for a few seconds and then stop. The outisde turn signal lights stop too.

When making a left turn on a green light, you should make sure that you signal. You also want to make sure there is no oncoming traffic so you can turn safely.

It may be a safety feature on your car. If you are going to make a turn you for sure do not want the cruise to be engaged.

Do you want the flasher or the turn signal fuse? The flasher is mounted on the left side of the steering column under the dash and the turn signal fuse in in the fuse panel. GoodluckJoe
