Folks,<br>Left front turn signal was giving me issues; intermittent blinking etc...<br>Checked the socket and found corrosion; cleaned it out best as I could with a socket brush; no joy. A tech got it working somewhat but says I need a new socket harness. In the meantime, the left front signal works, the rear works UNTIL I hit the brakes and then the flasher either speeds up OR slows down or just stays lit continuously. Changed bulbs multiple times and just had another motorist report my left stop lamp burned out.<br>Put in new bulbs on both signal and stop lamp and it works fine with the key in acc position but starts acting up again once the car is started?<br>It's a 97 850 wagon; any thoughts or common ground probs? Is the whole thing linked to my corosion in the left front socket? Very puzzling <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vortexmediagroup.com/images/banghead.gif" BORDER="0"> <br>John

Re: Turn signal shorting? (c17flyer)

the black plastic piece behind where u mount the bulb could be giving out (i suppose it could be called the socket), mine did.
