92 Olds Cutlass Ciera Turn SIgnal

Hope this doesn't seem like too stupid a question, but I can't figure it out myself. Right turn signal works fine, left one does not blink, just stays on. Both outside lights come on. Is this a bulb or the flasher? If it's a bulb, which one?

I can't remember if that's a combination bulb or not
If they go 1/2-way (1 filament), it'll do that on some cars
(some cars the indicator flashes like crazy)
I've had a few Cutlass' and can't remember if it just stays on when there's a problem

Easy enough to check
Pull the bulb and check both filaments
...or if there's only one, than that's not it lol

I'm not one for throwing parts at a problem, but if you get a good bulb and that turns out not to be the problem, it's a good idea to have a spare in ther glovebox

The rear light is turn signal, tail light and brake light, so that sounds like the place to start.

Yeah, if that's the case I'd put cash on it being the bulb

does it work with 4way flashers. If so I bet it will be flasher.

Haven't tried the brake lights, but the hazards do come on, so it's looking like the flasher. Anyone know where it is in this car?

Allso make sure front signal lights up as well they are all on same line. If one front signal light is out signals will not flash on that side. Good luck.

Turn on the good signal the right one I think you said and listen and follow the sound.
