View Full Version : signal problem?

02-07-2006, 09:32 AM
I am in need of some wisdom I have a 89 sidekick and recently the Turn signals have all stopped . I have replaced everything from the bulbs to fuses.
it wouldn't be so bad if it was just my bush mobile but it's a daily driver.
I am thinking that it might be the switch in the column? I am just wondering if this is a regular problem? anyways any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.[cheers]

there is still only one... there is the "flasher module" and the "signal stat" or the actual arm. the 4 way is run through the flasher, the signal stat gives the power to both sides of the veichle.
