blinker fluid

Guys my blinker plastic was broken in a hailstorm now its acting weird Ive already checked the blinker fluid and its full. In all seriousness its acting weird and it would take me all day to list all the odiosyncrasies Ive noticed after driving it like this for a few days

main problems are.

1. right blinker (one that was damaged , alot of water got into the housing) stays on on the dash . (and while its on actually blinks faster then the left)

2. door alarm goes off randomly while headlights are on (door defeat fuse is OUT) very annoying

I pulled all the fuses that I thought would be relevent to this issue but no luck

anything else I can look at like a relay ? Im to electriction (I cant even spell it either) so Im not sure how the water could have damaged the system, only thing I could think of is to check fuses

My guess is the flasher is going out (the cause of it staying on on the dash), had this issue with my mother's XJ. As far as the other blinking faster, the other bulb might be out or shorted, or again the flasher.

Blinker Fluid [BF-01] - $8.99 : KaleCoAuto, Hard to find automotive items!

Check all yours bulbs and make sure none of them are burned out. Also I'd pull the cover off where it broke, and remove the bulb, then look in the socket there for any kind of corrosion.

If it has any it could cause some issues, clean it out with some contact cleaner, put a little bulb grease in then replace the bulb.

OP,

Make sureyou replace the dilithium crystals in your warp drive.... If that doesnt help, then you try checking the number of transmissions... you should have at least 2.

All good I even went ahead and bought one of these in hopes it would fix my blinker

radiator insulator
The weakest part of your car is the likely the radiator. It is a simple matter of physics when we tell you this: Energy is lost through heat. Transmissions, as they lose more and more heat, begin to cause more loss of power. However, that's only a small part - The worst part is the radiator! All sorts of heat is lost through the radiator - in essence - losing the horsepower through heat! Not anymore!! KaleCoAuto brings you the Radiator Insulatior - Simply slip over your radiator and enjoy the power! KaleCoAuto radiator insulation is made from only the finest asbestos, and is guaranteed to trap 90% more heat!
No luck. Turns out it was a burned out bulb
