Turn Signal Problems

Does anybody else have problems with their front turn signals. My driver side turn signal lights up when the lights are on but they do not flash when I turn the signal on!!!!

What year Cobalt? Do your blinkers hyper flash? Did you try changing the bulbs yet?

Does the bulb flash? Or only the dash light?

it might be the clicker itself, usually located somewhere underneath the driver side dash.

The other question is, are you sure it's just the front?

Nope, blinkers are controlled by "BCM"

The back blinker flashes faster than it should like the front blinker is blown

Did you check if the contacts were still in the socket or if they were clean from corrosion?

It won't work if there is no contacts left inside the socket. Time takes it's toll on an 05 . Sometimes the contacts will weld themselves to the bulb from arcing and heat. When you pull the bulb out , it rips out the connector contacts.
