Turn signal dashboard indicator light

Postby swoopster » Tue Sep 22, 2015 9:11 pm



Hello all,

My turn signals work...front and rear. What doesn't work is my Left dashboard turn indicator. The Right one works. It will not light up in Hazard. So I have little confidence in daytime traffic that my actual signal is on and working.

Is there a bulb in the dashboard unit that needs to be replaced? How to get at it if that is the case.

thanks,

s...

It's more than likely you have a burned out IC bulb . You'll have to pull the cluster to replace it

Good evening swoopster , not a simple easy to get to replacement of a turn signal bulb. You have to remove the windshield and dash. Go to the how to do section of this forum and look up the heading of (how to replace the dash with LED) this is a step by step of what needs to be done to replace the burned out turn signal bulb. :D :D

thank you wingman and winger,

I had done all kinds of searches on the subject ( I hate to ask if the info is available ) but was most likely entering in the wrong search terms.

I was afraid of that!!!

thanks
