Driver Side Turn Singal Issues, Fuse or Bulb Problem?

Hello,
I have a 2007 Chevy Cobalt thatís pretty standard, no power windows, electric locks, etc. What's going on is my turn signal on my driver side is acting weird. When I pull down the wand to activate it; it comes on but blinks rapidly in my headlight but not in my tail light.

At first I thought I needed to replace my tail light bulb, but the tail lights and the brake lights work fine and the bulb doesnít seem to be burned out. Then I tried looking at the ownerís manual/fuse boxes to see if there was a burnt out fuse but could not find any fuses that are specifically for the brake lights/turn signals? I went to AutoZone and they weren't really sure what the problem was either. Has anyone on here had this same problem or knows a solution?

In a couple weeks Iím bringing my car to the dealership to get a tune up and whatever else needs work but I would like to fix this myself if possible. Thank you for reading.

-Adam

Welcome to the forum, Adam86!

I completely understand wanting to get this resolved on your own. If it does turn into a dealership repair, keep me posted on the progress! I'm available for any follow-up on the appointment, or to answer any questions you may have about warranty or recall information.

Quick blinker means an open circuit. Is the bulb in your instrument panel working? It is the same relay as brake light so that's good. Make sure bulb is good. My guess is that you misdiagnosed andyour rear bulb is actually burnt.

Yes, the bulb in the instrument panel is working. When I pull down the wand the arrow blinks rapidly while the right arrow blinks fine. I'll check out the rear bulb when I get off of work today, thanks!
