Hey everybody! I love my Pilot EXL which I bought in 2009 and have put 200,000 miles on it myself. Drove from San Francisco in it and as you probably know, it's a dream.
I've just had another Timing Belt job done along with other minor replacements: cabin fan, alternator, lower power steering hose etc. I didn't have this problem before the repair, but now my directionals don't work (not on the dash or bulbs), my hazards do (on the dash and the bulbs. I just replaced the headlight switch but still no luck. Whatcha think?

My first guess would be a relay or the switch in the stalk died. However - if somebody replaced the cabin fan, there's always the possibility that there's a loose or tweaked connection somewhere behind the dash.

Use the 'search community' feature on the top of the page - I'm sure there are other threads on this forum discussing a similar problem. Doesn't mean your fix will be the same, but it's a good place to start.

Since the hazards work even when the engine is off but the turn signals only work when the engine is on, maybe it's a fuse?

No. 10, 7.5 amp fuse in the driver's side interior fuse box, as I've highlighted for you in the attached document? Check not only by sight, but with a multimeter, or swap for a known good identical fuse.

You hit it on the head! I just checked the #10 with my ohm meter and it's open. Cant find one here but will get one asap and let you all know. Thanks for responding so quickly.

I replaced the light/directional switch and finally the #10 fuse and I can keep my arm inside again on my turns. Thanks for the help!
