First, check the fuse box, find the fuses for the turn signals, tail lights, and hazard flashers. Make sure that they are all good. Then, somewhere under the dash, at least in most cars, is a module called the 'flasher unit'. This is what actually makes the lights blink on and off. It is difficult to get these tested, but you might try an automotive electrical repair shop. Third, if none of the the previous have worked, take the car to the above mentioned automotive electrical repair shop. The problem might be in the switch in the steering column, or in the related wiring. In either case, troubleshooting it yourself can cause other malfunctions, unless you are a very proficient electronics technician and mechanic.

Signals fast in the front and inoperative in the rear is an indication of an inoperative (or burned out) brake lamp. Check the rear brake/tail/bu light wiring harness, for it is probably disconnected. This harness is located just inside the rear bumper (or behind the trailer hitch if you have one). You may find two connectors. Also check the bulbs themselves. I used cheapo wire taps from Radio Shack to attach a custom trailer wire harness on my 1992 Suburban, and over time the road salt ate away at the exposed copper strands in the wires, giving me this symptom on a yearly basis..NewHad the same problem with my 98 Suburban, found out that my tail light assembly is corroded, had it sand blast and it working superb. good luck New My problem started with first one side, then a few days later it went to both sides. Turned out my cable under the rear bumper had caught on something when I was offroad driving, but it didn't completely pull apart to begin with. Then later, it finally parted all together. It took all of 10 seconds to repair it once I knew what was wrong.

no Lincoln was an abolitionist or a person who was against slavery. Linoln thought slavery was wrong and wanted it to end and he hadn't owned any slaves because he knew owning another person was wrong.
