4-wheel drive - 186,000 miles
Hi All! I'm a newbie. Nice to meet you! I'm also not very astute at car repairs, so please be patient ;)
My Montero turn signals on both sides stopped working. The bulbs are good; the flashers are working, and I have checked all the fuses.
When I lift or depress the turn signal switch (arm), there is no clicking noise indicating that the signal is on, the bulb does not light up and nothing on the dash indicates that the signal is on. Now, BEFORE this happened, I would sometimes hear a grinding sound (like when you turn the key on but the car is already running!) When I used the signal switch. Now there is no sound and the signals don't work.
I've read other posts on here that suggest replacing a 'signal flasher' but I don't know what that is and couldn't find it in the parts catalog.
Please help! I live in So. Cal and driving in rush hour traffic on the freeways with no blinkers is gnarly (and people like to tell you you're number one)!
THANKS SO MUCH!
have the same problem?
