Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I noticed my turn signals and tail lights werent working but I still had break lights, checked the bulbs and fuses and they were good. It drove just fine all the way home but when I tried starting it up later it wont start. What might be wrong and are the two problems related?

Check battery connection and especially the ground wire to the frame and engine block. Sounds like you might have lost a ground somewhere. Hope this helps

It your flasher relay.

Turn signals, emergency flashers and tail lights are on the body of the car, Back- up lights are mounted in the trunk lid. I don't know if the tail-lights in the trunk lid come on ...or not. That may have something to do with it, but when you mention that it wouldn't start, dandyoun has a valid, good point. Michael does too about the flasher breaker relay.
