    2012 wrx drivers side blinker stays on

    Hey all...I know a lot of people have had turn signal issues,but I haven't seen this one. I had just replaced the drivers side front turn signal and it was fine and then the turn signal started going crazy and now it's just staying on front and rear lights. Any ideas?

    Do you mean your parking lamps are on? Is there a switch on the top face of the steering column as in earlier models? Does the owner's manual mention this?

    Sounds like maybe a fault with the relay. I'd replace the bulb again and see if it get's any better. If not, check the relay.

    Also, what kind of bulb did you use? Per your manual you should be using a 12V-27/8W bulb 1157NA.

    Honestly, I went to NAPA and told them the car and they looked it up and gave me a pack of 2, looking at it now it's BP1157NA. I also didn't disconnect the battery or anything. The front bulb had stopped working by the time I had gotten to my Wife's work, so I just hit the whole headlight with my hand and it blinked and then came on. However, both front and rear were still staying on again.

    I actually took it apart again... put the OE bulb back in. For some reason it started working fine. Maybe it was the spring not getting good connection or something IDK ... for right now it's working though. One less trip I have to make.
