What do the turn signal lights mean?

The turn signal lights located in your instrument cluster are connected to the same circuit that your turn signal lights are on for both the front and rear of your car. When your have the turn signal engaged, it will flash along with the lights on the front and rear of the car. It’s there to remind you that they are on in case they didn’t get canceled off. If the turn signal is flashing faster than normal it is indicating that a bulb is burnt out and needs to be replaced.
