Blinker Giving No Sound??

For some reason when my blinker- right or left- is applied it does not always give a sound. The blinker light works but the sound doesn't. Other times it randomly does give the blinker sound. Seems like it's shorting. Anyone have any advice on how I can fix it? Thank you!

Probably the driver door speaker going out. Seems common on these cars and was my problem. Turn all your music to that one speaker using the radio controls and see if it plays music. All the chimes and blinker noises come out of that speaker.

Dont forget the toilet paper. I'm surprised my speakers haven't blown up. I play music ignorantly loud when i feel me end up turning my radio on and all my speakers dying >.>

When you replace the speaker, be careful not to damage the water barrier inside the door.

Fixed one left front side speaker for $93 parts and labor at my dealer. I didn't have to pay for it as the car was under extended warranty.

what year is your car?
can anyone confirm or disprove that 05 and 06 do NOT play the chimes thru the speakers, but rather thru the speedo cluster (theres a small speaker in back)
