My turn signals were working but they quit. The lever for the turning signal feels loose. I have hazards. And everything is fine with the brake lights. Why do the turning signals not work? Also, my speedometer cluster lights don't work. The cluster fuse keeps blowing. Could all this be a result of the same problem? Plus, could the ground for the cluster light be in the steering column.
:confused::mad:

It could be your turn signal switch. The turn signals, and the hazards are on different circuits in the switch. The short in dash lights could be anywhere, you are going to have to troubleshoot the wire harness, or the cluster itself. A short usually occurs before the load when it blows a fuse, or the load is a short. The dimmer switch for the cluster lights could be grounding the power, because it is a potentiometer, and one side of the resistor is ground. If it is just your cluster lights that are not working, and your courtesy lights are still working, it is probably the dimmer switch.
