Hello....I have a 2004 MDX and tonight coming home I noticed that my turn signals where not working. When I parked in my driveway I put the Hazard lights on and they worked for about 30 seconds and then stopped working also.

I checked the manual and the 7.5V fuse in the inside of the car (driver side) for the turn signals is good. When I lock the car and set the alarm the blinkers seems to work.

I was doing some research and people talk about blinkers not working or stuck on ON inside but always with the hazards working.....in my case neither the blinkers nor the hazards are working.

Thanks for the help.

There should be a relay under the hood for that. See if that's working.
Thanks for the input. I am not familiar with any of this. I assume is in the fuse box under the hood, is it the kind that are square that look like an oversize fuse? I remember seeing three of those, what I am looking for?

Thanks

I'm betting it's the turn signal / hazard relay. Unfortunately, that's not a lot of fun to change, being on the back side of the fusebox on the left side of the driver's footwell (behind the plastic trim piece).

The thread linked in forbin404's post above shows how to get the fusebox out. Here's what the back side of that fusebox looks like...

It's not an expensive part ($7-11 from rockauto.com) but I'd make sure and get one from a quality manufacturer, whether Honda or ACDelco - just because replacing it is such a pain.

Hello guys...I was hoping tochange the relay this morning.....I removed the one nut that is on the panel but that whole box is not coming out.....do you happen to know how to remove the box? I assume I have to remove the whole box correct?

Thanks again.

I bailed out when I got to that point, too... In my case I was just trying to work out how to install a blinker that was LED-friendly (since I'd replaced the yellow rear turn signal lamps with LED lamps to get rid of the "egg yolk look"), but decided it was just easier to install resistors on the lamps and call it a day. ;-)

Here's the page from the manual - looks like it's "just" a matter of pulling it out at this point. I suspect (but don't know) that the "box" to the right has some sort of clip / bracket that holds it in place.

Good luck!
