What is the purpose of Rear Turn Signal?
Turning signals are a key safety feature of any vehicle. It acts as contact for drivers after the vehicle has taken a right. The turn signals also double up with the front turn signals as an emergency blinker working alongside. They are also used for marking the vehicle's presence during extremely low visibility conditions.
How Rear Turn Signal Works?
The turn signal stalk switches on the rear turn signals. When the stalk is engaged in either direction, the circuit with the selected side's forward and rear turn signals is completed. When the switch is engaged they receive power through the battery, and a fuse in the junction box protects them. Unlike other bulbs that are constantly illuminated the turn signals blink. This intermittent glow is achieved through a flasher or module that transmits power to the bulbs intermittently. This module allows to blink the lights in a rhythm pattern.
Where is Rear Turn Signal Located?
The rear turn signals are present in the vehicles' tail light clusters that are found at the rear end.
