Tip & How-To about Chevrolet 1500

Prevent early vehicle bulb failure

Help your vehicle bulbs enjoy a long and full life.
When replacing turn signal, tail light or any other bulbs on your car, don't forget to apply an ample amount of bulb socket grease in the socket before inserting the bulb.
The dielectric grease will prevent moisture from contaminating the bulb to socket contacts that cause corrosion and high electrical resistance that promots early bulb fatigue and failure.

I am having problems with the rear turn lights one not working and the other blinking very quickly. Some other sights have said that it is the Turn Signal Relay - the car is a 2007 Nissan Altima 2.5s and for the life of me I cannot locate where the Turn Signal Relay is - PLEASE HELP.


replace bulb make sure the front 1 works too will cause the indicator to blink fast,it is a bad bulb not relay when you replce bulb make sure you get the corect number most have 2 filament in bulb ,if you put a 1 filament bulb it will cause all kind of weird stuff like keeping your indicator on ,or your tail lights will be too bright on 1 side ,when you replace the dual filament bulb it as to be put on only one way ,if the wrong way it will cause the tail light to be bright and signal dim,the signal should be bight and tail lights dim,ive seen alot of people make that simple mistake including alot of mechanics,make sure you get the correct bulb number
