After washing the car, I found my turn signals didn't work anymore (blown fuse). Obviously water got in somewhere that it shouldn't have. Anyone else experience this or know where the "weak" point is?

After washing sometimes mine go out. I remove the bulb and wipe the connection area where it plugs in and the bulb itself. I find mine corrodes but once I clean it out it works again...

Possible.

Two things - and very simple:

1. Google the layout of the fuse box. Check/replace the fuse. Easy.

2. Bulb could have popped out or connection loose. Super easy to check in the boot.

If it's one of those two things, it's a 3 minute job to check and/or fix.

OK, but it's water triggered...which could be bad news in the rain.

Got to be ez to fix.

A year and model would be nice to go on... the batteries in my Crystal Ball died last night.

Please... this is an on going problem...

If you have a question please let the rest of us know the year and model of the car as that is a great help to diagnose your problem. :facepalm
