: Turn signal stops working and then starts working again

This happened one other time about 3 months ago. My front driver side turn signal stopped working. The flasher would go into hyperflash, indicating a bulb is out. After a few hours, everything was fine. Then, recently, it happened for about 4 days. I figured the bulb needed to be replaced. However, yesterday it just started working fine again. Does anyone know what could be causing this?

Did it happen after a hard rain, high humidity, etc? A poor connection will raise the resistence of the circuit and can cause weird behavior. An bad bulb can be intermittant but that's rare.

Actually, no. It's been extremely hot and humid in my area, with no rain. Could it be a connection? It seems to be happening intermittently now.

Corrosion in a bulb socket or connector. These can be hell to find.
