Electrical problem
1991 Acura Integra 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual

My turn signals are messed up. If you turn on the right turn signal the right and left flash. If you turn on the left turn signal the left and right flash. If you turn on the headlights and the right turn signal it works perfect. If you turn the headlights on and the left turn signal the left works good but the right turn signal goes out. What's my problem?I checked all fuses and switches and wires. The other thing is my hazards do not work. As soon as I turn one of the turn signals on and then turn the hazard on the turn signal stops working. Help.I need my car to work properly. Thanks

Test continuity and resistance to your multi-function switch. Suspect bad switch.

I've already tryed the switch no diffrence.I did find out that if you turn on the headlights and wiggle the switch a little and turn on the turn signal it works like it should. So I don't know what's wrong with it.I need this car running before the 24th.

I still maintain that the problem is due to bad multi-function switch. The entire light switch (turn signal stalk included). That is the only logic that explains the turn signal works when you wiggle the switch.

The 14-pin is the socket to the multi-function switch that runs the headlamps, turn signal, hazards.

Okay I'll see if I can get a new switch. Thanks for the help. What about the flashers?How do fix them?They don't work at all. Are they part of the turn signal problem?

This is your flasher. Responsible to create the "intermittent effect" to the turn signals and hazard lamps. Are you talking about the hazard lamps?

If you are, then yes, it is a part of your problem.

Where is that located at?And if I replace that hazard relay and the multifunction light switch my problems should be solved?Thanks

The flasher should be by the steering column. My opinion is that replacing both the flasher and the multi-function switch should fix your problem.
