My Toyota Avalon xls...

My Toyota Avalon xls 2003 is the issue

Yesterday both right and turn signals stopped working completely

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you hoping to fix this yourself?

Yes

Mechanic's Assistant: Great! What have you tried so far?

Checking for fuses

Mechanic's Assistant: Is there anything else the Toyota Mechanic should be aware of about your Toyota?

But I am not clear what do

Can you explain to me in detail what exactly is going on with this car? What exactly is your question?

yesterday all of a sudden both turn signals blinkers and correspondent lights stopped working
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
how can I fix them?
Toyota Mechanic: Skyvisions, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

What do you mean by correspondence lights? When you push the four Way flasher button do the flashers work front and back and both sides? Has any work been done to the vehicle recently?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
no work done. It means the turn signals do not work at all, both inside and outside the car
Toyota Mechanic: Skyvisions, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

When you push the four-way Flasher button can you hear any relay click on or do the lights work? Do you have a voltmeter or A simple 12 V test light to check a few things? Is there anything else in the vehicle that does not work? The dome light? The horn?

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Everything else works. No click sounds at all. And no, I do not have a voltmeter.
Toyota Mechanic: Skyvisions, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

If the four way flashers are not working and the turn signals are not working the only way to find out what happened or what's causing this is to check for specific voltage at specific points. To do this you need at least simple 12 V test light. Is this something that you think you would be able to pick up at the parts store or something that you would be willing to try or are you just looking for general ideas as to what to do?

I am willing to fix it myself
Toyota Mechanic: Skyvisions, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

You will need to get to a nearby auto parts store like AutoZone or similar and purchase a generic simple 12 V test light. This will have a simple clamp on one end that would clamp onto a good metal surface and a probe with a light built into the probe. Typically less than $15 for a decent one. You don't want to go to cheap because it will have a flimsy cord and lousy bulb in it.

Ask Your Own Toyota Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
ok. then what?
Toyota Mechanic: Skyvisions, ASE Certified Technician replied 2 years ago

Once you have the test light let me know and I will start walking you through a few checks.
