Directional signal malfunction Sign In

I have a Chrysler Crossfire (2004) I changed the bulbs directional signals and neither one of them blink but they work. I also checked the fuses but I am stumped as to why they do not work.

? Not strong in these cars but an idea. Probably either one relay/flasher for both directionals and hazards lights if neither work at least look at it. If not using that type it's using the vehicle's control module and a code reading will likely show up gives some direction to chase down. May need the highest end code reader there is not just any.
Just a question - Did any sockets look overheated or in trouble in any way? It's totally possible one shorts or sends voltage back and all hell breaks loose,

No the fuses don't seem to have gotten that bad but I'll look into the relay/ flashers to see what I can learn but that's a start.. Thanks

If troubles with just flasher or two of them is doubtful look up parts for this see what it asks, or comes up with nothing. There are electrical parts that do move inside or the show stops for that item.
Relays are another. They allow for a higher draw of current away from the source that triggers it to work just so less heavy wiring can be routed.
Do check fuses with a test light and for continuity not just looks. So far not super common but some are not making the connection but look fine to your eyes.
Many vehicles have a couple spares marked at such in fuse box or center for them just if you do only use exact rated fuse NOT a stronger one is a higher number.
Good old owner's manual may be helpful on locations for each item(s) covered by fuse or relay hope you have it original to the specific car.


Good luck see what you can find and hope it's just something silly many things are just that,
