Default No Turn Signals

Hi,
I am the owner of a 1994 accord ex 4 door. The other day my girlfriend
noticed my front driverside turn signal wasnt working, so I went to the auto
parts store and bought a replacement bulb. When I went to install it I found
the housing was cracked and the light was filled with water. I drained the light
housing and fixed the crack but the contacts to the bulb had become coroded,
So Im laying in the driveway jiggling the bulb to try to get it to work with the car
running and the turn signal on when all of a sudden all the turn signals front and
back just stop working. I have checked both interior and underhood fuse boxes
but cant find any blown fuses. I also replaced the flasher above the interior fuse
box but still have nothing. Does anyone have a suggestion???. Any help would
be greatly appreciated.

Thanks Again
dieman

im not an expert on the turn signal circuits, but i believe when you pull a bulb it puts a break in the circuit and the whole thing stops working.

try taking a file to the contacts, then put the new bulb in

The hazard lights work except the one on the driverside front so there is power
there. Why would I not get power on the turn signals?????

If the hazard lights work, and the turn signals do not, AND you are CERTAIN that all the fuses are good (Like #32 in the under hood fuse box...) then there is a good chance that your combo switch isn't working.... I'd start by double checking fuses, then pull the old bulb out, make sure the hazzards work still, then try the turn signals, if it doesn't work then you obviously don't have power to any of the bulbs, now we need to backtrack to under the dash and see if you're getting power to the turn signal relay... now since my brain isn't functioning right now I don't know if you've got the KG, KH, or KE model so my wiriing diagrams aren't doing me any good..... Download a manual from the link below if you don't have one already

easiest test is to put a voltmeter on the contacts and see if you get anything from it...

you said you replaced something that wasn't a fuse, are you talking about a relay?

clean up the left side bulb socket, replace the bulb so we're working with a complete system.... then check your ground wires at the bulbs, now turn on the blinker, test for power at the socket, if you don't have power, test for power to the flasher relay.
