Honda Accord blinker question

15 posts in this topic

I have an (03) accord that the blinker quit working both front and back there is no fast blink or any clicking it just quit working both front and back. Could I be lucky and have it be a fuse or is it likely the arm needs to be replaced???

Does either side work, (left/right)? If not check fuse #16 under the hood, or fuse #7, and #21 inside the car.

Left side works both front and back it is just the passenger side that does not.

Looking in some past history on these, I found a remote starter causing a concern with turn signals. If you dont have a remote start, it wont be this! Or I found a few multiplex control units, I believe they are part of the interior fuse panel!

I have no personel experience on this car, these are just history fixes! Good luck! Do the hazard flashers work?

OK all the fuses look intact, the emergency flashers also only work on drivers side. No remote start. to test the multiplex control units do I just buy a new one and swap them out? or can I tell if they are busted?

Thanks!

The flashers on these fail, smaller relay in under dash drivers side fuse box way up top.

any idea what these are labeled? I pulled out my manual and it wasn't much help...

Thanks for all the help!

This sounds like a Multi-function switch (the turn signal switch) or a flasher.

Just a guess at this point.

Try putting the right side on, wiggling the turn signal switch around while in the up position.

Little update, just for kicks I swapped the bulbs in back and know the back bulb is good. I pulled the front one and it looks good, but I would have to pull the battery to swap those and did not have time before work... Any idea how those relays, flashers are labeled? And are they in the fuse box? I can't find anything there but it might be labeled with a goofy code or something.

The flasher relay is in the interior fuse box.

I just wanted to say thanks, It was the flasher/relay and I don't think I ever would have found that thing without the pic from 4waderingeyes. When you look at the fuse box under the dash you have a door to get at the fuses and thats all you see it does not look like more is there.... You have to take off some plastic molding to see the rest anyway thanks again!

    • Love the curvature of the antlers.   Beautiful mount!
    • Not a monster for sure but he makes the season a success. I wasnt going to be able to hunt tomorrow because of a first communion, not afternoon today because of my dads birthday, and only evenings Monday&Tuesday.  So time was limited and i am more than happy to eat jake. Here he is.
    • Either I'm slackin', or the sun is rising earlier than it did last year! Didn't make it to the river until 6, but surprisingly I was still the first to arrive  walked to my normal starting spot, but once there, something told me to go out of the ordinary. So I packed away my black panther martin and put on a crayfish husky jerk. I didn't catch the trophy I desired, but I did catch some nice ones, with the biggest being about 15 inches. I ventured farther downstream than I ever had before, and wanted to keep going, but it appeared that the fishing easement ended, and I may have been on private property. I stayed in the river the entire time, but didn't want to push my luck, so I went back upstream. Caught 19 total, probably lost at least as many. Surprisingly, no brook trout though. 
    • Oh yeah, a lot of the newer 1/2 tons have frame rust issues as well.  If you want a serious off-road machine, you need to go back to the models with the straight front axles, and of course, they're getting harder to find in decent shape too.  Especially in the rust belt.  You can still find solid older trucks if you head west, young man...        
    • Just to be clear- The wrangler wasn't introduced until 87 so at least compare apples to apples and having owned ford,chevy and dodge trucks of the Wrangler era I can testify they all have issues. My 08 Ram had more frame and fender rust than my older Jeep. The Chevy's have plenty of frame issues as well. Yes. It's a concern but if you want something like this,there is no better alternative.   https://www.google.com/search?q=chevy+frame+rust+problems&client=opera&hs=Lrs&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjAnPz1kMrTAhVpw4MKHSs9B1UQ_AUICigB&biw=800&bih=381
    •   Good questions. You have 3 body style configurations to choose from.  The YJ body was made from 87-97 and that had either a 4 cyl or an inline 6. It had leaf springs and a pretty spartan interior IMO. Some serious off roaders liked the leaf springs but they rode pretty rough IMO.   I feel the 4 cyl is anemic especially with bigger tires. The 4.0 inline 6 is bulletproof, has decent torque and power and fits the Jeep about perfectly. In the YJ series the manual transmission seemed like a better option in my experience.   The TJ ran from 98-06. This version replaces leaf springs with coil over shocks. Mine is an 06 and has the dana rear with the 4.0 and auto trans. I have BFG AT KO 32x10s and on gravel they have taken out 2 side mirrors by throwing rocks at them.    I prefer the TJ series. It has better suspension and interior than the YJ while keeping the original drive train. Fuel economy pretty much sucks as you are essentially driving a brick. I probably get about 12 MPG. If they had done a diesel I would think the wrangler could get 30 but...   The JK series replaced the TJ and was a pretty radical redesign. The body is wider, the drivetrain is totally different and the interior was upgraded quite a bit as well. They went to a pentastar V6 instead of the inline 4.0. trans was upgraded as well. They also started to sell the 4 door unlimited which gives more interior space as well. The new ones are much more civilized and refined which is great for taking the top off and driving to the lake or beach. OTOH they are expensive and harder to justify taking off the top and heading into the woods to hunt or find mud. 
    • Yes, you do have to have at least a weak cell signal and battery for the GPS to work. I know that can be challenging at times in the woods.
    •   Not sure about the new V6, but the old inline 6 was bulletproof, and had a lot of low end torque, which is a desirable feature in an off-road vehicle.       Any 1/2 ton pickup truck from the 70's and early 80's in particular, had a much better frame than a Jeep.  Body panels rust in all of them.   Not saying this is a deal-breaker for a Jeep, just something to watch for, since it is a very common problem.
