Customer Question

I was hooking up trailer lights and think I shorted out the flasher module. Checked fuses and found a blow flasher fuse but nothing else. I get the right directional light to go on but doesn't flash, the left does nothing. *****

the HZDT/SIG fuse or the fuse called T/SIG ?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
The HZDT/SG (15 amp) was blown. When I replaced it the hazard signals blink. The T/SIG fuse was ok, but I put a new one in anyway and the direction signals do not flash. The right side directionals go on but do not blink. The left side do not even go on. I check the fuses in the inside panel for the left and right directionals and they are both good.

if that fuse or the other one is NOT blown then when the trailer wiring or what ever happened to short out to blow the fuse has damaged the turn signal flasher moduleyou will have to replace the turn signal flasher module and that should correct this issue you are havingthere is nothing else that would cause this problem you are having
