Q: Turn signal lights not working.

asked by on January 13, 2016

All lights but the turn signals work.

I believe there was a recall done on the turn signals for your vehicle. You may check with your local dealership and see if this applies to your vehicle. If not, these are cars are known for having faulty turn signal switches and flasher switches. Of course, could be a problem somewhere else in the circuit, such as an open or short. The fuse could be blown, too. If you do find a blown fuse, you’ll need to track down the reason it blew in the first place. I suggest you have your vehicle inspected and repaired by a certified technician, like one from YourMechanic.
