    I have the same problem with my S80 (1999). None of my bulbs are out, we checked thoroughly. It happened once before and eventually just stopped on its own. This time it's been a month and it drives me crazy. You can't see your MPG, etc.

I had a similar light in my Camry.  It usually refers to the bulbs in the rear of the car.  Brake lights, rear turn signals, tail lights, reverse lights, and license plate lights.  Check those and make sure none of them are burned out or loose.

Alpha Romeo 156 My Left hand indicator light stays on continually, does not flash. and when I turn the hazard light switch on both indicators continually glow.


Generally speaking, symptoms of a bad or failing turn signal bulb are usually the culprit...in your case, either it's the front left or rear bulb. Varies for different vehicle makes...common signs include:
  1. turn signal light staying on solid
  2. or blinking very fast
  3. or either sides of the bulbs stop blinking altogether.
To test this, make sure you reconnect everything you disconnected.
Turn the left signal light on; go to the front of the vehicle, is the turn signal bulb illuminated? If it lights up, even though it is not blinking obviously the bulb is okay. If it doesn't, replace it- problem solved. You'll do the same procedure for the rear turn signal Is that lit up? If not replace the bulb and the problem is solved.
Another common failure is when the turn signal blinks really fast, same procedure as mentioned above.
If both bulbs for the left side and right side illuminate but don't blink, the problem is in the steering column turn signal switch.
If the left or right side blinkers don't work properly at all...then check the integrated hazard warning/turn signal flasher relay- that may be defective; again, that's usually the case if both sides of the signal light don't work.
If you are blowing any fuses related to the flasher system, you have an electrical overload in the turn signal circuitry.

Passenger side brake light out


If the fuse is alright (brake and running lights) and the left side brake light works I would suspect a bad ground or socket.
You could use a test light to check if you have power to the bulb. Do this while the brake pedal is depressed. First remove the bulb in question ( look at the left lens a note position of brake light) just mirror the position. With bulb removed ground one end of the test light to a bare metal body part or ground wire. Use the needle end to test the exposed contacts. You will see then once you remove the bulb. One contact is battery + and the other is the ground. While the one lead is properly grounded if the probe touches the contact and the light 'lights' that means its getting power. If either of the contacts fails to light the test light you have a fuse or wire problem.

Through steps like above you can also check the ground by hooking the probe back wards. Connect the clip to the Bat. + and probe the other contact to make sure the ground is working.

The dashboard daytime running lights indicator symbol has quit lighting up in my 2003 L200 saturn sedan. The lights do work just not the indicator. I looked in the manual and saw the relay ciruit , but no...


The running light indicator bulb may have failed, remove the cluster and check the bulb. If the bulb has a white housing the part number is 21019273 if the bulb has a yellow housing the part number is21019274. You may have to get the bulb from a GM/Saturn dealer. Thank you. PS There is not a fuse for the individual bulb.

What is bulb position light failure? what is whistling noise mean once the car warms up


Bulb position light failure indicates that you have a burned bulb somewhere around the car. Check all of them. Brake lights, parking lights, flasher and so and so.

This is a very common problem with Volvo.

You could alo get this problem eventhough no bulb is burned. If it's the case, test each bulb contact in their socket playing with them. Make sure you put some electric grease on contact replacing the bulbs.

Check if there were a recall for your specific vehicule and if it has been done on yours. I know that during the years, some recalls were adressing this type of problem.

Regarding whistling noise during warm up try to remove oil filling cap during engine is running. if the noise stops it's probably the PCV that is blocked and need to be replaced. If it doesn't fix it, let us know and we will go more in depth.
Hope it helped

How do i change the tail light on my 1998 nissan sentra?


the actual tail lamp lens of the light bulb inside the lens?

for the actual light bulb, open the trunk at the back of the lens there will be a grey circle connector, 1 is the turn light, 1 is the tail light, simply rotate that connector opposite of the position that says "lock" written on the circle connector, that pulls out and then you can turn the bulb and replace that.

for the actual lens, you will need a 8mm socket and possibly a pry bar or a hammer. there are 3 8 mm bolts at the back of each lens, find them, they should be at each corner of the light, take those out, unclip the bulb harnesses mentioned above, unclip any connectors, should be 1 white one, then hammer the ends of the bolts you removed, this loosens the seal around the tail light. simply pull the tail light straight out, if it wont come out varify you removed all bolts and connestions then proceed to use the pry bar or the end of a hammer to pull the light out which will pull out towards the outside of the car not into the trunk. takes about 15 mins to do very easy.

Bulb Failure position option


the position bulbs are located in the trunk and you access them the same way you access the tail lights im not sure what the bulb does but its a 10 dollar fix. FYI when you replace the bulb the message center will still tell you that it has failed you have to take it to the dealer to have them to erase the message (i just left mine it seemed a waist of money)

Position Light on Volvo S60


Not sure but maybe you should verify rear position lights located in the trunk.
There are two bulbs on each side, even if you replaced one of them the other one could be burned.
