    Front or rear signal light?
    Does the turn indicator lite on the dash stay lit when you push the turn lever so that turn lite is supposed to work?

    Get back with me and we can get this fixed

For Front turning signal, you need to remove the whole head light system to get to turn signal. 4 screws attach it to the car's body. Make sure to remove the lamps first and disconnect the switch for the turn signal lamp. Just replaced it last week myself.

This is straight from the owner's manual.

#1 Make sure the headlamp switch is in the OFF position and open the trunk.
#2 Carefully pull the carpet away to expose the backside of the tail lamp assembly.
#3 Remove the nut and washer assemblies, then pull the lamp assembly away from the vehicle.
#4 Remove the bulb socket by rotating it counterclockwise, then pulling it out of the lamp assembly.
#5 Pull the bulb straight from the socket.

Install new bulb(s) in reverse order.
Good luck

SOURCE: procedure to change turn signal light bulb on a

Remove 3 or 4 of the plastic pins holding the inner fender. They are located around the lip of the fender opening. The pins are removed by pulling the center cap of the pin straight out about an 1/8" and then wiggle and pull the whole pin out.
Pull the inner fender down and back.
Reach your arm in and grab the socket and squeeze the locking tab.
Rotate the socket counter-clockwise less than a quarter turn, and pull straight back.
Reach your other hand in and remove the bulb by pulling it straight out of the socket. It takes a 3157 bulb

SOURCE: Can't figure out how to change the bulb for turn signal on Jeep

it can be a pain because the screws are hidden. first you must remove the parking lamp raise the hood. one screw is visible from the top looking down at the lens...the other is hidden on the bottom side....look between the park laml and the turnsignal housing..a long phillip scew driver can reach it. once you have that removed lookng straight down at the turnsignal assembly you should see 2 screws. remove them and roll the assembly out and away from the body...you should see the bulb holder

Turn signals are one of the easiest systems in your car to troubleshoot. Your signal flashers either work or they don't. If they don't, either you need to change the bulbs or you need to replace your turn signal relay. Know more about car diagnostic tools for automobile.

The brake lights work but the turn signals don't!! Have checked the fuses and bulbs, but not finding the problem


Fuses and bulbs OK, but wires? Additionally I suggest keep in mind that turn signals work with FLASHER devices (two independent) on 1993 Buick Skylark..

Application: Turn signal
Flasher is located: Front seating area, driver side, under dash, driver side of steering column, mounted on support bracket

Application: Hazard flasher
Flasher is located: Front seating area, driver side, under dash, above kick panel, mounted in top of convenience panel

Hope this helps (remember to rate and comment this answer).

How to fix turn signal on 86 Chevy Astro Van


you don`t say but do the lights work either on the front/back on both sides.if not then it may be a fuse that needs replacing or need a bulb replacement.if the lights work but don`t flash then it sounds like a signal flasher problem.the flasher is located in the fuse panel under the dash on the drivers side.if the hazard flashers work then turn them on to find the hazard flasher by the fuse panel then you will know what the signal flasher looks like and change the signal flasher.make sure you change the one for the signals and not the hazard one.if the hazards work then i would say the signal switch is good as the hazards work through the same switch.

Turn signal dosent work


you need to check to see which bulbs don`t work both front and back lights for the signal on the side it`s not working,you don`t say if any signals work or not if no signals work then you need to check the fuses under the dash on the driver`s side.now if it`s just one side then check the lights as mentioned above.if one isn`t then replace the bulb.if neither bulb is working then it sounds like the signal flasher is not working.turn on the hazard flashers and check the lights front and back.if all bulbs work then leave the hazards on and look under the dash for the flasher that is making the noise,this will show what the signal flasher will look like,then find the signal flasher on the fuse panel under the dash it should be located on the fuse panel.and replace

Front driver's side signal light does not work. Changed the bulb and it still does not work. The driver's side rear works and the passenger side works (front and back). Also, when the signal arm is pushed...


when a bulb fails on one side of the indicators the other bulb, same side, flashes faster, SO.you have just answered the question yourself,as you have replaced the bulb with a new one, the contacts for the new bulb are at fault.

Driver front turn signal does not blink. front


This may have more then one bulb in the front or possibly a bad socket try wiggling the new bulb in the socket to see if it will work.Compare all turn signal lights that come on the passenger side to those drivers side.Some vehicles also incorporate sidemarker lights with the turn signals.

Front turn signal bulb replacement


In your manual on page 5-53 it states how to change the bulb out
for the turning signals - we had the drivers side out. Gave it to our mechanic and had it completed in about 2 hours.
