Turn signals wont work bulbs ok dont have a manual to the car dont know wich fuse goes to the turn signals


pickup a test light and check all the fuse if the fuses are good then you probably have a bad signal flasher.make sure you change the signal flasher and not the emergency flasher as they look the same.

Trying to change a rear light bulb and dont know how to open it up


Rear Turn Signal, Brake & Parking Lights The taillamps, stoplamps and rear turn signals lamps are all incorporated into the rear taillamps. The taillamps are lit whenever the parking lamps or headlamps are in operation. The rear turn signal lamps flash with the front turn signal lamps whenever a turn is indicated with the turn signal/headlamp dimmer switch. The stoplamps light whenever the brake pedal is depressed and the stoplamp switch is closed.

The trim panel is likely held in place with retainers like this. Back out the screw to release tension on the pin legs and remove the fastener

The taillamp is retained by plastic wingnuts

Remove the plastic wing nuts from the taillamp housing

Remove the taillamp housing from the vehicle to service the light bulbs


  1. Open the rear compartment (trunk).
  2. If equipped, unhook the convenience net that stretches between the taillamps. It is attached to hooks molded into the plastic taillamp assembly retaining wingnuts. Loosen the rear compartment trim panel. It is retained by plastic pins with a screw in the center. Back out the screw to release any tension on the plastic pin legs, and pull the trim (thin carpet-like material) for access to the taillamps.
  3. Remove the plastic taillamp assembly retaining wingnuts.
  4. Remove the taillamp assembly from the vehicle and service the light bulbs as required.
  5. Installation is the reverse of the removal process.
  6. Test the lights for correct operation.

When i turn the turn signal to make a left or right hand turn all lights lite up but dont blink


Check to see if the front or rear bulb illuminate when you set the TS switch to the right or left. If the bulbs light in only the front or rear you have a signal head issue.
Let me know.
