Solid/non-blinking left turn signal

I searched and couldn't find anything similar. When I hit the left turn signal switch, both the dash light and taillight go solid. Right side doesn't have the same problem. Relay maybe?

There isn't a relay.

Many goofy tail light/brake light/blinker issues can be solved by cleaning the bulb sockets and putting in new grease and cleaning the ground points for the tail lights. The tail lights ground through their mounting bolts, to unbolt them and clean up where they mount until it is nice and shiny.

Since it works for the right hand side, it doesn't sound like the flasher (on the top of the fuse box below the driver's side dash) but you can switch it with the other one that drives the hazard lights to check.

If that doesn't work, you got a short somewhere.

You don't mention the front light... A burned out bulb can give those symptoms.

The turn signal flasher can is a relay. Try swapping it.

That can be deceiving though. Some newer electronic flashers will still flash no matter the load so you can't tell if a bulb is out.

Ended up being a burnt out drivers side rear bulb. No broken filaments and I always thought that the turn signal would flash faster if there was a burnt bulb. Guess not. Anyway, thanks for the suggestions.

I guess it is a relay, I've just never heard it called that.

I'd call it a circuit breaker before I'd call it a relay.

I call it a flasher or relay. I haven't heard it called anything else. As long as we are on the same page though. The silver can for the turn signals and e flasher. LOL
