    Blinker problem

    08 wrx
    50k

    Blinker is flashing like its out in the cab but all of the bulbs are in working order.

    Tried a search and came up short.

    Btw, I hate electrical stuff because I suck at it.

    Thanks!

    What do you mean its blinking like its out...like its blinking fast? I would check your parking lights and all other exterior lights as well as your turn signals again ( make sure they are all as bright as there supposed to be)...sometimes one of the filaments will break..Ive seen this cause weird problems before...I know you wouldn't think from a simple broken filament...

    All the lights were in working order when I first posted.

    I went to napa and bought a front and rear blinker bulb. Replaced the rear, didn't fix it. Went to replace the front and noticed that I had to take the battery out. Did that, got the bulb out, realized that napa gave me the wrong bulb for the front. The bulb looked fine though. Put everything back and now it works fine. I think disconnecting the battery may have cleared up my issue but time will tell. Who knows...

    Thanks for your input!
