Just got one (it was love at first sight) and am so thrilled, except for an issue with the turn signal. Don't want to go through the hassle of taking it back to the dealer if it's an easy fix.

The issue:
Left turn signal fine, lights up (front and rear) normal blinking speed.
Right turn signal, only rear lights up, fast blinking speed.

What's going on? Any ideas? Any help is greatly appreciated.

There's an open circuit in the right front turn signal. It could be a burnt out bulb, a loose connection, a faulty socket, or a broken wire.

Try swapping bulbs with the left front signal. If the problem moves with the bulb, the bulb is bad. If the problem stays with the right side it's a faulty socket or a broken wire, best left to the dealer to find, especially if it's still under warranty. Otherwise you'll have to trace the broken circuit yourself.

If you're lucky, the problem will fix itself as you're plugging and unplugging the bulbs.

Welcome to MV. Seriously, Whattookmesolong, what took you so long!?! Razz emoticon
Post pictures. We love pictures.

Cars do the fast blinky thing when a bulb is out. Once you determine that is the problem, I'd replace the pair so they match in brightness.

Ahhh. I've come to the right place Many thanks for the replies. Will try and see if it's just the bulb. I had also reached out to the salesman and he said the same thing

Pictures soon. It's just a stock 2023, but man, she is a beauty. What took me so long indeed. Laughing emoticon

Swapped out both front turn signal bulbs. Problem solved. Thanks!
