Electrical Technical Information Discussion, Turn Signals Solid When HeadLights On! in Item Specific Cadillac Discussion; For some reason, when my headlights are on the turn signals are solid, however they do flash when I move ...
I have the same problem with my '97 STS! However, in my case, only the left blinker light is on when the lights are on (this is only on the inside). In addition, I observe the following anomolies:
1. The left front turn signal light is not illuminated when the lights are on like the right side is, but it does blink with the turn signal is turned on.
2. The left turn signal blinks faster than the right turn signal.
3. When I turn on the right turn signal, the "Hazard" indicator on the dash blinks with the turn signal light.
These things were not happening 2 weeks ago and I know of nothing that could have triggered it. When it first started to happen, I replaced bulbs but did not get any change in behavior.
*** HOWEVER ***
I have read on this forum today that you can get some strange things like this happening when your bulb sockets are corroded. And, when I was replacing the bulbs, the "white" light on the left side that turns on to illuminate the side of the road when you put on your turn signal was rusted into the socket. I had to break the bulb and remove it with a needle nose plyers to put in a new one. The new one works, but I still have the same problem in the cabin and it is driving me NUTS! My next step is to try to clean out that socket (previously mentioned) to see if that solves the problem. If it doesn't, I will probably try replacing it! I'll let you know how that goes!
By the way, have you ever owned a car that has so many darned light bulbs?
