Symptoms of a Faulty Nissan D21 Turn Signal
Communication among drivers on the road is very important to avoid accidents. Your turn signal is a crucial feature in this aspect. All you need to do is flip your lever, and the other drivers on the road know where you intend to turn. Without this car light, more accidents surely have occurred already. This part is known to be vulnerable to different issues such as blown bulb or bad wiring connections. With this, before things get worse, you should be able to know when you must start working on your turn signal.
Turn signal does not flash
Your turn signal is meant to flash to set it apart from your running light. You only activate your turn signal every once in a while, so other drivers should know when it is activated. When the turn signal does not blink, there is a problem with your turn signal flasher relay. This part makes the turn signal self-cancel, causing the blinking of the bulbs. You should check this part for damage or corrosion that may cause the malfunction. It is located at the metal flange near the clutch pedal stop of your pickup.
One turn signal flashes faster than the other
Your turn signal lights are meant to flash in unison. When one flashes at a faster rate than the other, the problem lies on the bulbs themselves. One may be blown, causing higher voltage delivery to both bulbs. This may also be caused by incompatible bulbs. Higher-quality bulbs tend to flash faster than lower-quality ones. With this, you should check your bulbs and make sure they are not blown or incompatible.
Turn signal lights on one side do not work
If both your Nissan D21 turn signal lights on the left headlight and tail light assemblies do not turn on, the bulbs on both assemblies may not be touching their sockets well. These cause the malfunction in the activation of the bulbs. Check the sockets for corrosion or loose connection. Also check for bad grounds on wires connected to the sockets.
Both front Nissan D21 turn signal lights do not work
If both turn signal lights on your headlight assemblies do not work, it may be caused by a fuse issue. Check the fuse and replace it if necessary as it may be damaged or corroded.
