TURN SIGNAL MALFUNCTION

1999 Buick Park Avenue

Electrical problem
1999 Buick Park Avenue 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 116000 miles

I think I did this backwards.I donated $20 thru PayPal before I registered to ask a question. Not sure my donation will show up now.

I recently acquired a '99 Buick Park Avenue 2nd hand and I absolutely love its performance and the immaculate leather interior; I am just frustrated with having no turn signals.

Within 48 hrs. Of getting the car, we noticed that the LEFT signal wouldn't flash; just stayed on constant. And when we'd park the car and turn the ignition off, the left turn lights stayed on solid which would have run the battery down had we not pulled the fuse under the hood, passenger side.

We inspected the bulbs/lamps. All seemed to be good, but we didn't change them. Reading a couple of posts on this sight makes me wonder if that would help.

What we did do was acquire a used turn signal assembly from a salvage yard, installed it and all seemed to work. Within 24 hrs. It was doing the same thing again. We assume it has burned up these 2 turn signal assemblies.

I love this car and my husband is saying " trade it off" and so is my son, but I want to get another opinion before I give it up.

Thank you for your help! Kelly Stamm
