Almost always it's a bad bulb. Check to see if all the bulbs work. You can take out the bulbs and use a volt/ohm meter to check them for continuity. Sometimes there's corrosion in one of the sockets the bulbs go in. The filament is the weakest point and after awhile they get brittle and break. Most cars use 1157's that you get at Walmart cheap. If you can't test them just buy some and start swapping them out. The bulbs in question would be the bulbs on the side you're having a problem with. We're talking about the bulbs at the front and rear of the car, and also sometimes some smaller side marker bulbs. Have someone help you check them, and compare the side that works with the bad one. I usually start with the rear'cause there' usually more bulbs there so more of a chance I'll find it without taking too much apart. Most cars rear lights are accessable through the trunk, after you undo some retaining fasteners. Sometimes they look fine when they aren't, other times you can see a broken filament inside, and sometimes the bulb is black on one side. I had a Chevy awhile ago that the headlight was 1/2 full of water and it worked fine for months. Good luck!

Flasher is under the dash, drivers side, follow the clicking sound the signal makes when turned on. That sound comes from the flasher. If signal is staying on it could be you have a bulb or two out. Check your signal lights before replacing the flasher.

That usually indicates that one or more of the bulbs have burned out. Turn on the left signal, get out of the vehicle and see which bulb is NOT turning on. Replace that bulb and the signal should work again. Also the flasher may not be working for one side.

You did not mention if it is a bulb problem or it will not flash. If it blinks faster on one side than the other, then you have a bad bulb. Check them and determine which is not working and replace it. If the indicator stays on steady, then you have a flasher problem. it will not flash

Replace the Flasher Relay. If that does not correct the problem, then the turn signal lever is defective.

Why does the right turn single on a 1985 Buick lesabre limited stay on on the right side?

If you mean it stays on and does not blink then check the other turn signal bulbs on the right side front/back. If it blinks but does not turn off when you make a turn then the problem is in the steering column canceler.

What to do about the turn signal lights in the dash staying on and the turn signals dont work?

Typically if the turn signal lamp on the dashboard stays on (i.e. does not blink), it means you have a burned out turn signal bulb on either the front or rear of the car. This is especially true if it happens only on one side (i.e. left or right turn signal). If the problem exists on both sides of the vehicle, check your flasher unit.

Signal light works right and left but green aroow stays lit after turning signal off on 1995 buick skylark what causes this?

Get the green arrow to stay on. Now get out of the car and walk around it, looking for the turn signal bulb that stays on. That bulb has a bad ground. I fixed mine (very) temporarily with aluminum foil, then later by running a new ground wire. I just wrapped stripped wire around the base of the bulb and ran it to a ground.

85 Chevy blinker stays lit but not flashing any suggestions?

The first thing I would do is replace the flasher. The flasher is what controls the on / off of your blinkers, giving you the blink blink. If that doesn't work, it sounds like your turn signal switch is going bad. GOOD LUCK

I knicked the front driver side signal on my Dodge ram replaced it back in and it works but won't blink It just stays solid is it Flasher Bulb?

If the bulb is the correct one and the other side of van lights all flash, then it is not the flasher. Check front and rear bulbs on the side that stays solid. Could be bad parking light or taillight bulb. Hope this helps.

When the headlights are turned on the right signal light comes on and stays on and does not flash Can someone help?

First thing is to check for a burnt out bulb in either the front or rear turn signal for the side that stays lit. Second, if the bulbs are fine then check for a bad turn signal fuse/cannister. Hope this helps.

1996 olds mobile ciera How do you fix a turn signal when the hazard lights blink right turn signal blinks but when using left turn signal it just stays solid?

It sounds to me like you have a bulb brunt out. With a bulb burnt out there is not enough load on the flasher to make it flash.When using the hazards there is enough load because all the bulbs are working through one flasher fuse, you would need at least two bulbs burnt out for this to not work.The flasher fuse is a automatic resetting circuit breaker, and needs enough load to pop the breaker, and one bulb is not enough load to preform this. Need more help contact me through my board and I will try to help.

Why the left indicator light in 66VW speedometer stays on?

Sometimes one of the dual lite bulb filaments will partialy break and drop onto the other one and then gets power from the the other filament so it will come on now. Check all your connections for ground are clean and tight. Worst case scenario is the signal switch may be bad. If your right one is working fine then it won't be a signal flasher unit.
