Signal Help

Soo yesterday i had noticed, When I signal, my Directional light for the signal on my dashboard was getting weaker, i didn't think much of it an continued on with my night, on the way home i realized my signals didn't work, decided id check in the morning, probobly a fuse or bulb.

Next morning i wake up, check all the fuses, including under dash an under hood, especially check hazard fuse an the tailight fuse, They are all fine, nothing.

Now my signal still ticks, just ALOT faster then usual, my signals don't turn on an neither do the green directional lights on the dash, if someone could help me out an point me in the right direction that would be great

(Also to include, my hazard fuse kept blowing a week or two ago because i had a shot battery, so i had put in a 20 Fuse to compensate, its been about a week an a half with my new battery and i never replaced it with a 10 fuse, think i could have damaged a wire)?

thanks, jkba

That's very possible, fuses have an amp rating for a reason. If all your fuses check out then id get a multimeter and start checking where your power to lights stop at.

Re: Signal Help

you aren't going to damage anything by putting a bigger fuse in. just means you probly won't get the proper amount of current flow to the devices you are trying to operate. i would go back to a 10 amp fuse first and go from there.

I fixed the fuse with the correct amp and nothing, im thinking its the flasher relay above the in-dash fuse box, going to have to check it out tomorrow

If he kept blowing fuses then there were too many amps drawn through that fuse...if everything is working properly then no, putting a bigger fuse in won't damage anything. But, it is possible that he damaged something by allowing too many amps through the fuse...
