I have the car listed above and the turn signals don’t work but still have the bulbs inside. I’m missing a parking light and don’t know which bulbs go to them or the turn signals.
Do you
have the same problem?

Hello, I'm Danny.

You might be experiencing the loss of turn signals due to a defective or burned out turn signal flasher relay. The relay is located under the dash. Here is a tutorial on how to test a relay and electrical wiring:

The bulb numbers needed for your car are 1156 and 1157 that are available at all auto parts stores. If the turn signal lenses are color plastic they will require a clear bulb just like rear brakes. If the plastic turn signal lenses are clear then it will require a yellow coated bulb. Here is a tutorial showing how to change a bulb:

I've attached a picture of the bulbs and the flasher for your Infinity. Hope this helps and thanks for using 2CarPros.

Okay, under the dash to the left there are three blue blocks, is that where I plug the relay at? Also which one should I remove the 1st, 2, or 3rd block?

Sorry for the delay.

If you are looking at one of the 3 relays to the left of the steering wheel then these are not one of the flashers.

Below you will find the info about how to test the flasher and the close up of the location. You will see this on the right side of the steering wheel closer to the center console.

In order to access this you are most likely going to have to remove the knee bolster which is the panel under the steering wheel. To do that, you need to remove any screws from the bottom of it and then pull it down as it will be clipped in at the top most likely.

Please run through this and let us know what you find. Thanks
