    Question Blinker won't blink

    I just replaced my front blinkers and they were workin fine for a few days, then the left one just stopped blinking. The lights all work, it just won't blink. This might be a stupid question, but what's wrong and what do I do?

    Check the bulb again and check that it has a good ground.

    Good ground? All I know to do is take out the old one, and put in the new one.

    Also, when changing bulbs, DON'T touch the glass with bare skin, or the oils from your skin will burn it out PRONTO, as the "bright" element of the blinker bulb is also your daytime driving light... they get really hot and will go poof very quickly if contaminated.

    U probably just didn't push the bulb in far enough. It should snap. I did the same exact thing a month or so ago, and then i realized the bulb was not completely snaped in. I know it sounds obvious but double check, sometimes car problem are just that simple.

    I had an issue in the steering column. If I would adjust the wheel it would cause the right turn signal to freeze. Try adjusting the wheel up and down and see if your turn signal starts working. If it is you have a short in the switch. Pray its just a bulb/ bad connection.

    Is the right side blinking? If not I would look at the flasher but if it does blink I would do as others have said and recheck all the bulbs to make sure something isn't jacked up.

    has the right stopped as well? if so do this:

    check your turn signal indicator fuse that's located up under the dash and to the right of the steering column. you have to remove the panel under the sterring column in order to do so. it's round (feel for it) about 1-1.5" diameter.

    if not, check your bulbs are in/connected all the way.

    I don't have time to check them right now, but I would think that if there was a bad connection, the light wouldn't come on. The light comes on (I turned my hazards on and both back lights and the front right were blinking, but the front left stayed solid). So could it still just be a bad connection even if it lights up?

    Change the bulb & use a Sylvania ONLY.
    GE's will melt the base & crack the bulb.

    Then if you still have problems report here.

    If your blinkers are starting to blink slower there is a chance that your flasher is going out. On my car when I first got it they would blink slow, then they stoped. When I changed it out they started to blink faster. So basically just change out the flasher and see if that helps. You should be able to find one at Vatozone for about $8.00.

    Well I went to the shop and bought a couple more signals, cuz I dropped and broke one of mine when checkin it out. I think the problem was that I didn't use bulb grease when I put them in the first time. I didn't know I had to. I think the problem was corrosion. I scraped some crap out of the socket, put the bulb grease on the base of the bulb, and hooked it up. Workin great so far, but I'll let ya know if anything changes. Thanks for your help guys.
