hey all
out of the blues, when driving, the left-turn indicator light was not blinking-completely dead. (i cant remember what its called hehehe... used ) anyways so yeah the ligths outside are blinking normally, the clickin-like-metronmoe sound is still going, but the left sign isnt working. Even when i activate "Flashers", only the right "arrow" works, or if i give a right sign.. but the left arrow on the dashboard is dead.. any advice ? is it a fuse or a led in the board ? how to fix it ?

I would say a bulb. Pull out the cluster and look for a bulb near the indicator.

There is a bulb on the back side of the instrument cluster behind the turn indicator. This is a mini light bulb, not an LED. You will most likely need to pull the instrument cluster out to replace the bulb. The right indicator will light and work correctly if the left bulb is burned out.

That's what Andre saying pull your cluster gage out check your bulb mine went out on the right side didn't bother two years later the whole cluster died.
