Q: Blinkers

asked by on

right side blinkers dont blink but come on. left side is fine

My car has 150000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

In most cases when the blinkers work on one side and then comes on when switch to other side but do not blink then one of the bulbs is bad and need to be replaced. Look for one of the bulbs on that side to not light and then replace that bulb to see if it starts to blink.
