Customer Question
My 2002 Nissan Frontier...

My 2002 Nissan Frontier turn signal is dying. Blinks once or twice every third try. Hazard lights, same thing. Do I replace the the turn signal mechanism under the dash?

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the fuse?

Would the fuse be the problem if the signal works sporadically?

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Frontier yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes. Have purchased the turn signal mechanism from an auto parts store but am not sure how to get to the spot where it goes. Under the dash?

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Not that I can think of. Thanks.

What Customers are Saying:

I was in trouble with an electrical issue with my brand new Nissan. I frantically went online trying to find help and luckily I found your site. I reached a NISSAN tech named RIP. He was absolutely tremendous and helped me work through the issue. What a pro!
