Toyota Camry Turn Signals
Turn signals are an essential safety feature on every Toyota Camry; they alert other people on the road regarding your intention to switch lanes or to turn right or left. If one or more of your vehicles turn signals has been affected, its important that you find an appropriate replacement quickly. Thankfully, its relatively easy to find and install new Toyota Camry turn signals.How do turn signals work?
Turn signals work thanks to the turn signal circuit. This circuit is powered up by the first turn of the ignition key; this power is sent through a fuse panel to the thermal flasher to the stalk on the steering column. Finally, it reaches the turn signal lights, activating the blinking light visible to other drivers.What turn signal replacement options are available?
Depending on the source of the turn signal problem, select one of the following options:
- Replacement bulbs: If the bulbs have gone bad, simply buy new bulbs. LED signal light bulbs are available in a variety of colors to suit your needs and preferences, such as yellow, red, and white.
- Turn signal lens: If the turn signal lens was damaged in an accident, select a new one that fits into your Toyota Camrys existing lamp assembly. Having clear turn signals is required by law, so be sure to make this a priority if your turn signals should lose their function in any way.
- Turn signal relay: The relay is the electrical apparatus that controls the turn signal. When the relay stops working, select a new one that is compatible with your particular Camry model.
