Q: Blinkers not working when setting alarm.

asked by on

The left side blinker and lights don't go on when I set the alarm.

Whoever put the alarm in for you did not hook up to the parking lights but the turn signal circuit. Check with whoever put it in or have a mechanic, like one from YourMechanic, come and see if they can identify the wiring issues.
