During a complete stop and a turn signal is activated, there is a slight sound o clicks, and I don't mean the turn signals clicks. What should I do?
Do you
have the same problem?

This sounds like the flasher is out but let's start with the easy stuff, the fuses # 21 and 7 in the under dash fuse panel. this guide will help you with the test if the fuse is okay and I have included the flasher location as well just in case. I have also included the blinker wiring diagrams as well so you can see how the system works.

Check out the diagrams (Below). Let us know what happens and please upload pictures or videos of the problem.

A few days ago the right turn signal light came on in my Accord and stayed lit (not blinking) while I was driving. The turn signals and emergency flashers didn t work. I parked my car and a few hours later saw that my right front and back signal lights were on (as though I had left my lights on). My auto door locks worked and lights inside worked. When I went to drive home later that day my battery was dead. AAA jumped me and I drove home with the dash turn signal still on. About fifteen minutes into driving the dash light went out and turn signals worked again. Strange. This morning my dash light right signal came on again but went out again a few minutes later. I drove my car home and used a different one.

Could this be a bad battery causing this? If not, what could it be? Thanks for the help.

This sounds like the turn signal flasher is stuck or going bad here is the location so you can change it out. Check out the diagrams (Below). Please let us know what you find.

My blinkers work fine when my headlights are not on. When I turn on my headlights and try to turn on my blinker, both blinkers start to flash and it looks like my hazard lights are on. We have already changed the multi function switch.

Hi,

It's possible you there is a poor ground at G601 or a blown fuse or relay causing a voltage drop in the electrical system. I'm attaching exterior light wiring diagram, fuse block location and repair guides below. I highlighted the grounds and fuses for you to pay special attention too. The ground wire on the left front drivers side front floor ground. Lift the carpet up and make sure the ground wire is clean and tight. Let us know if this information was helpful and what repair the lights.

The front and rear left indicator lights and hazard lights do not work. The right side lights work fine. All of the bulbs are intact and working and the visible connections are are clean and attached properly. Can you help me or will I need a my mechanic to diagnose it via his computer?

If the hazard lights do not work for these bulbs as well, either the bulbs, flasher relay or wiring has a fault. Such diagnostics do not require any computers and neither would it help. It sounds like one of the fuses is out please check #16 under the hood and #7 and 21 under the dash here is guide to help check for power.

This wiring diagrams will show how the system works with the fuse locations as well. Check out the diagrams (Below). Please let us know what happens.

My 2003 honda accord ex, my turn signal on the drivers side works on the fron t and back, also instrument panel, as far as flashing. Now my passenger side on the other hand does not work on the instrument panel or on the front or back of car, has no flash at all. I thought it might be a fuse but don t really know, or do I know the location.

Hi scarface80,

If the hazard lights works all the bulbs correctly, either the flasher relay or switch is faulty.

There are no separate fuse for left and right.

I have a problem with my accord 2003 about left turn signal. All of a sudden it stop working but right turn signal is working though. Only Right hand side of Hazardous lights are working. I have checked bulbs they are ok, also there is no rust or corrosion in their nest. All fuses are ok as well though I did not see any dedicated fuse to signals. Have you guys encountered such a similar problem before?

Hi ozgul1969,

An open in the wiring circuit between the flasher relay and combination switch would cause the problem.

After checking Flasher relay I realized that it was the problem. I paid $20 to buy a new one and replaced the old one. Thanks for your reply.

My left turn signal would not come on. They told me the bulbs and fuses were fine, that it was an electrical problem that would cost me $99 to diagnose. Can anyone offer help, on what the problem is or how to diagnose it myself.

If the bulbs check OK, and the right turn signal works, it is most likely the flasher relay. It is located behind the left kick panel, in front of driver door. To the upper right. Pull out the flasher unit, jumper between pins 2 & 6 (1 is at top, 6 is at bottom) Switch on left blinker. If the bulbs light up, you have a faulty flasher unit. New ones are about $35 at your dealer. It's only money! Cheaper diong it yourself.

The turn signals don"t work and the fuse is fine. The hazard switch is missing because. Does the hazard switch have to be plugged in for the turn signals to work.
