What's wrong with my turn signals?

6 posts in this topic

I have a problem that I know someone knows what is wrong. Ever since I unhooked the boat trailer after my last trip, the turn signals have been acting up. After engaging the turn signal they will blink as normal for about three blinks, then they go crazy blinking very rapidly, sometimes slowing down some but then will blink rapidly once again. Brake lights and tail lights work fine. Fuses all appear to be fine. It is a 91 Ranger. Any help is appreciated -LaVoi

It sounds to me that your flasher is bad. This is a plug type resister that plugs in to the fuse panel. Should only be a few dollars. It will be silver metal round or square, kind of like the starter on a florescent light. It will be labeled as a signal flasher. Get a heavy duty flasher if you tow your boat a lot.

Fast blinking in cars usually means the bulb is ready to go bad...you try replacing the bulbs yet?

I would have to agree with your problem being a flasher, and definitely get a heavy duty flasher, They are very cheap and simple to replace.

Weird, I have that problem when I tow my buddies boat. Well, actually its fine when towing, but when I unhook them (trailer and all)then they start to blink fast. I turn off my truck then restart it and they're fine. My boat doesn't do this, only my buddies.

Flasher hmm..

    • You can save the mapping data on an SD card. In order to create a map you will need the Zero Line Card. You will take the SD card and plug it into your PC. Down load the map data into the zero line software. The software than creates the map and uploads it to the zero line card. It is typically recommended to use an SD card for the data as once the zero line card is full of either maps or map data another card will need to be purchased.
    • whats a samsquatch?  lol
    • Nope....don't need friendseyeguy54..... It was a darn samsquatch!
    • Way to get him out MM!  I'm sure he appreciates it.
    • I believe some units come with maps of some lakes but probably wont have any real detail as far as contour lines.  I think most will have a map of the US but when you zoom in you wont get much for detail on lakes and If they do contours will probably be 5-7ft apart.  If you want to put data on a card you will need a zero line card for mapping. About $150 i think.  8 hours should give you quite a bit of mapping.  Best would be to buy from a retailer so someone with knowledge of the product can show you how to run it.  You might be able to take some snap shots of sonar and put on a blank card but don't think you can map with it. I would get a Lakemaster card for the area(s) you want to fish.  Worth every penny.
    • Turkey season is over for my nephew!! It was a long season with many hours spent in the blind. He seen more turkeys then ever before and had a toms close enough to grab. It is going to be nice to sleep in. Until fall turkeys!
    • Heading up to Devils in a couple weeks and again later on.  Doesn't look like a lot of activity on here.  Tryng to get an idea whats happening before I go.
    • I have been out the last two days locally and haven't set the world on fire. Caught a few each day, but fish have been scattered. Lake is loaded with curly leaf mats this year, so that hasn't helped things. Once that starts dying and weather warms up, things should pick up.
