This may be a bad dual filiment bulb (1157,3057) dependin on year. Also the bulb may be in backwards. This is hard to do but is a possibility. If the signal indicator is on and stays on it is most likely a bad bulb. Otherwise you have a broken wire or a short in the lighting harness.

Why would Front headlight signal light one side 95 Corsica dim with right dash signal lit up but not working Why will lights suddenly brighten dash signal turn off yet still not work All bulbs good?

You have a dual-filament signal bulb somewhere with a bad ground. Turn the headlights and turn signal on. The bulb with the bad ground will go completely out at times, even though the headlights are on.

Why do your turn signals work with headlights off but turn on and stay on with the headlights on 93 civic?

Check the contacts on the turn signal bulbs. Sounds like there may be a crack between the two contacts allowing the headlight/tailight voltage to cross over onto the turn signal contact. Hope this helps.

Turn signal light stays on when headlights are on does not work when headlights on but does work when headlights are off this is on a 90 prizm?

I realize that this is going to sound pretty dumb BUT....... Take the turn signal apart, totally, and wire brush all the connections very well. It sounds like you are getting a feed back through the ground. Do the same with the headlights. Put a little dielectric grease on the bulbs before putting them back into the sockets.

71 nova turn signals stop working when headlights are turned on?

I would almost bet it's the directional light switch in the steering column. Do they not work when you step on the brake pedal also? I'd put my money on a faulty ground at one of the turn signal lights. Watch the bulb when you turn on the turn signal with the headlights OFF. If both filaments are glowing in any bulb, it doesn't have a ground.
