So I've searched around and found the answer may be the cpu box where the relay is. I checked for signals on through the green/black wire and the green/yellow wire and they both receive voltages. The problem is the left blinker not working. I hear a fast click, but the dash light and the front/back left signal light won't come on. My right side is perfectly fine. With the hazard switch on, only the right side works.
That's when I opened the box, took the relay out, and examined it. I believe that the left blinker doesn't work because of this orange corroded thing on the board. Is this board fixable or cleanable? I never dealt with this and don't know how to tackle it.
i haven't checked to see the bulb in the rear yet, but shouldn't the driver's side bulb work without the rear being blown or not? would the dash not light up if the bulbs in the rear or driver's side is blown?
i'll take a look in a bit. i found out that i was missing a brake light bulb, and thought it was blown. so possibly the previous owner removed the left blinkers as well.
If he'd searched, he would have found numerous references to the left and right blinker fluid reservoirs.
To the OP, the right reservoir fill point is right behind the passenger side headlight bucket. The fill point for the left reservoir is at the back under the rear hatch.
If your local autoparts store is out of blinker fluid, you can use Windshield cleaner fluid like you get at AutoZone in the gallon jugs for a buck or two while the blinker fluid is on back order. But only use the blue stuff.
mine had a burned solder joint, so i resoldered it, and it works. took lees time to fix that than to check the bulbs!
mine was also the left
Judging from my picture, do you see anything that I need to solder? Because everyone is telling me it's the bulbs. I replaced the bulbs today and my problem is still there. My left arrow dash light doesn't blink or turn green. It's black as if it's not turning on. On the outside of the car, there is no light at all. However my right arrow blinks and turns green, just like how it should be. My right blinkers has been working fine all these time before I replaced the bulbs.
Just to see for myself, I took off the right bulb in the rear and I heard a fast ticking sound, but the light on the dash still blinks no matter what. So I think my problem is the relay, but everyone is saying it looks fine.
What about the BTN 60amp fuse in the engine bay? I took it off just to see what it does and the dash light doesn't blink for the right side. My right blinkers became just like the left blinker; only a fast tick and no lights on the outside of the car and on the dash.
I've already replaced the fuses in the fuse box near the relay, in case anyone was wondering. I don't think it's the blinker switch because my multimeter is receiving continuity from the green/black and green/yellow wires when I have the switch on. Though I was checking the end point that connects to the relay box, and not the other point that connects to the blinker switch.
Unplug the 7 wire plug from the CPU which houses the G/B and G/R wires. Jumper a wire between these two wires and move the turn signal switch to left turn position and see if the left blinker lights turn on or not, and this is done w/the key to on of course. G/R provides voltage for G/B. The wires mentioned in your first post are unrelated.
G/B is powered by G/R so if the jumper lights up the arrow/ blinker light then the problem lies within the CPU. W/o the jumper the G/B wire should receive voltage when the turn signal indicates left turn. Another possible cause would be one of two wires mentioned is pulled back within the plug making poor contact w/the circuit board.
So I went to pick-n-pull and to my luck there were two s4 rx7 at the lot. The cashier and online database said there's only one in the lot, but i guess they haven't updated the system yet. This leaves me wondering if they even have other cars in stock and just haven't updated it in the system; for instance, i was waiting for a 240 to show up, but they never updated the website.
anyways, long story short i was able to get 2 blinker relays. brought them home and 1 of them were bad and the other one works fine!
i now have left blinker!!!!! thanks for the help guys!
