Q: Turn signals and emergency flashers not working

asked by on

I have no turn signals or emergency flashers.

This is most likely due to a blown fuse or because the device that flashes the lights has failed. The component that flashes the lights interrupts the electricity flow to the lights to make them flash. This "flasher" as it is called can be a high failure rate item. I would ask for help from one of the mechanics at YourMechanic to help diagnose and correct your lighting issue by replacing the flasher if needed.
