    wife can make and said indicator wasn't working. I went out and the main indicator on drivers side head light wasn't working. I changed the bulb and still nothing but the fog light flashes instead ? instead of the the indicator ?
    every other flasher is working.
    can someone help

    The fog light is the "stand-in" flasher. The car still thinks the flasher isn't working. Perhaps it's the bulb holder, not the bulb?
