Recently i have had my passenger side front blinker cut out on me. Like sometimes it wont blink and then it will work again the next day or the next time i drive it. Even sometimes when i unlock my car just the driver side blinker flashes. I have already changed out the bulbs thinking it might have been a bad bulb but it is still doing it. Anyone have any info about this?

I had the same issue with my left front turning light. It goes out three times already in 5 months. The dealer tried to fix it and I was told it was a bad design...
Any one has any tips of how to fix this? Appreciated.

Apparently you didn't click that link andrewsu. If you did you'd see that it's a TSB that tells you exactly what's wrong. Also, it seems your dealer doesn't know about this TSB because if they did, they would have follwed the fix procedure and everything would great.

Dear ilal2ielli, I have brought my car in for this 5 TIMES for this issue. I also advised the dealer about the TSB. They said they fixed according to that in the secon time. They claimed they replaced the whole module already. But it still come back after a couple of weeks every time. Tomorrow I will bring it in for 6th time, dealer said they do not know what to do either....
I got my car 8 month ago and have 17K miles on it already. Any one have any good suggestions!!!
Thanks a lotttt!

OK. So is there anywhere that will tell us how to fix the problem ourselfs? Like say i fyou CAN'T take it to a dealer to have it fixed.

I have an 05. So that TSB is no good for me. But the headlight housings are most likely from an older make. I bought a second set and baked thouse did the crap for my DDE's (which don't work anymore). and tinted my headlights. So i can't take mine in to get it fixed. the driver side will stop blinking and I have to pop the hood and turn the handle that is fo rthe plastic rod that the bulb is connected to. Almost like it doesn't have a solid connection in there and vibrates itself away from the connection. so I have to keep adjusting it.

Gets to be a pain in the ass.

yeah i had this problem before... and actually, maybe you should try to align the turn signal thingy 90 degrees, not a degree more..... try it out... open up ur hood and turn on the hazard light.. then adjust the turn light "stalk" (under the hood) until it fixed.... prob it's the same prob as mine... mine is an 03 tho...
