Greetings All,No your not getting drafted...My 02 Eldorado has issues.I tried turning the mist tab on the turn lever and my hazard lights came on.When this happened,my signal lights acted like the hazard lights.Both blinking when signaling right or left.The windshield wipers are not working now either. I pulled the hazard fuse and the turn signals do work but,no headlights.Tail lights work.Hazards go on and off properly.. I can't figure out what's wrong.. I'd appreciate any suggestions on how to fix the problem..Thank You..
Last week I ran into a problem with my right turn signal (2005 STS) not working. Before then, the signal would work intermittently, particularly after replacing front brakes. After replacing the bulb and checking the wires, still no turn signal. I Googled to try to find out what could be the problem and found out that the sockets on the '05 can fail due to thermal damage since the running lights were designed to stay one when headlights are off, which increases the duty cycle. The same problem can also occur with the '06. GM issued a bulletin about the sockets being a problem. When trying to figure it out, my last resort was to inspect the harness that is connected to the turn signal assembly. And sure enough, I discovered the problem. The connection was contaminated with dirt. The reason why the turn signal would act up after replacing the breaks is because I rattled the connection. I almost didn't check the connection because it looked to be tight and I figured chances are it's either a short or the socket. But, common sense prevailed (Actually, Thank You!, Lord Jesus), and at the last moment I decided to check it. Glad I did!
Hello. New to Cadillac and the forums. Bought a 1996 Deville about a month ago. Been a Lincoln guy for a while having owned a 96 Mark VIII for many years. Loving the Deville. I’m in no way a mechanic but I can make a lot of repairs myself. Thank you all for your informative posts I’ve had the opportunity to read thru seemingly the entire forum that relates to the mid 90’s Deville. I do have a question (I’m sure I’ll have more). I ran out of blinker fluid. I know, I know, but it describes the problem pretty well. When I first got the car the turn signal would occasionally make a slightly different noise, like its normal click but labored. For the last week the turn signals would work for about 20min (almost all my commute). Go to get off the freeway, hit the turn signal and nothing. Turn the car off and on and the signals would start working again. This morning the blinker “ran out of gas”. It would blink and click once or twice and stop for the first turn or 2. After that it like half clicked and nothing and now nothing. Emergency flashers work, indicators on dash lights up, clicks sound faint but might be normal, exterior signal lamps are lit/flashing. I guess the first questions is what do I replace and where is it? The relay? The switch? Something else? Is there some other test I should run to determine what’s faulty? Second question what is it I’m specifically looking for. Blinker, turn signal, flasher, relay, switch: There’s a lot of different names to describe the correct part. Looking on advance auto what should be “exact fit” for my car for turn signal relay has very different pictures of the parts. Some look like an actual connector others look like the 3 prong square thing I’m familiar with. Thanks for your help! I really appreciate it.
