    does your left and right turn signal not work??? usually it's just one that the arrow will stay on... it's more than likely the bulbs (up front) that went out...

    Some cars have a different flasher for turn signals and hazards. If both sides are out, I would check that.

    +1 for the flasher. Both bulbs being out up front at the same time would be out of the ordinary unless you have been driving around with one bad for a while and did not notice.

    you would think . . but ive had it happen before. With they way our housings get heat/stress cracks in the lenses; driving in the rain long enough, moisture could get in both housings at the same time.
    but i agree, it could be the flasher. .

    if new flasher did not fix it or if you do not find problem with wiring and bulbs , next i would check the lever connection on the steering wheel housing

    Check the "Turn B/U" fuse #2 in the IP fuse block.
    Also turn on the hazards and walk around the car to make sure the 2 front and 4 rear bulbs all flash. That will prove the bulbs are ok.
    Another thing to check is to make sure you replace the correct flasher. There are 2. One for the hazards and one for the T/signals.
    It should also be noted that the front t/sigs run through the DRL module so tha could be a problem

    Question Flasher

    I need some help. I have a 2001 WS6and I replaced the turn signal bulbs

    with LEDS and an electronic flasher and it all works great except that now

    my hazard lights work ridiculously slow. I replaced the flasher to the right of

    the steering column and I would like to know where the other flasher is

    located. Any help will be appriciated. Thanks.

    I think LEDs need more current to operate as normal bulbs would. I could be wrong about this.

    Easiest way too find it is to turn on the hazards, listen for the click noise and follow it. The hazard flasher mounted up under the driver's side dash to the left of the steering column

    Oh OK. Is that what a ballast resistor is for? The last time I dealt with LED lights was when I was helping a coworker set up an LED tail/signal assembly for his Ninja ZX7. I think we needed resistors. This was years ago though.
