1987 dodge dakota turning lights


Asked by Apr 04, 2015 at 11:04 PM about the 1987 Dodge Dakota STD Standard Cab LB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

what can be wrong with the turning lights when both the front turning light do not work at
all but both of the back turning lights work fine?

1 Answer


If the turn signals flash fast then you have an open circuit somewhere from the turn signal switch to the front turn lamps, if the turn signals flash normally then the turn signal switch has lost the entire front portion inside the switch itself, sometimes a partually engaged 4 way switch can cause this condition, try cycling the 4 ways a few times and see if that clears up your problem.
