Turn signal is not flashing/blinking in the rear but is flashing in the front. Is the fuse out?
Have you tried a new bulb?
Yes bulb is not out
Does the brake light on that side work? Inspect the socket for damage. Be sure that you have the correct number replacement bulb in there. HTH. -Jim
Jim-Signals are not flashing in the rear on both sides and the bulbs are not blown out. They flash in the front.
Possibly the emergency flasher button issue. If I not mistaken your turn signals also go thru this button and when it goes bad you can loose either front or back turn signals or both.
Dandyoun- so what's the solution
You will have to do some trouble shooting to be sure but the hazard switch or the multifunction headlight/turn signal switch could be the culprit.
Since it's flashing in the front it's not the hazard switch. Does the brake light on that side come on?? Check for power at the socket as well. HTH. -Jim
I don't know about brake light will check that out thank you Jim
Hello Jim the break lights are on so what can be the problem
Ok, since the brake light on that side comes on (same bulb, socket, and wiring) that eliminates everything in the circuit except the flasher and the turn signal switch in the steering column. Since the other 3 corners of the car will flash, that eliminates the flasher. So it's going to be the turn signal switch in the steering column. When you step on the brake pedal power goes straight through the turn signal switch to the back of the car and the brake lights come on. The turn signal switch, when activated, diverts power to the flasher then to the back of the car. Sounds like the contact inside the turn signal switch for the rear (one side) is bad. HTH. -Jim
Can I tag on with a similar question? My Malibu is 2007, with many of the same symptoms that niecyblu described. Front turn signals flash rapidly, but rear turn signals don't flash at all. Bulbs are fine - I replaced them to be sure. The difference in my case is, the rear brake lights are also not activating (except the center light on the trunk lid). Any idea what I might need to replace?
