Check the socket that the bulb sits in. It is very common for these to go bad. The socket can be replaced and can be purchased from your local gm dealer.

Turn lights don't blink

If the turn signals don't blink on both sides of the car, the culprit is the flasher, a small box usually located under the dash on the driver's side. Replace it with a new part.

If the turn signals don't blink on only one side, one of the bulbs on that side is burned out. Turn on the turn signal for that side and visually inspect the turn signals. Replace the burned-out bulb.

1998 olds intrigue drivers side signal light keeps burning

It happened to my 98 Intrigue. It stopped as soon as I changed the sockets. It is very simple to do this, just pull it out the the plug from the connector about 4 inches from the socket. I got used ones at the junk yard, 2 bucks a piece. Been working fine for almost 2 years.

Turn signal driver's side doesn't blink

A safety (warning) feature on many cars is that the turn signal light will come on but not blink. This should indicate a burned out filament in one of the bulbs on the effected side. Try checking the bulbs and replace them one by one and see if this cures the problem.

Side signal driver side

What your describing sounds like incorrect bulb positioning. If the socket is not located correctly then water can enter the light housing and blow the bulb, sometimes in pieces. This is the only condition that a bulb blows to pieces, when a hot bulb meets water. If needed remove the entire lamp assembly to make sure it is properly located in the socket. Good luck.

Blinkers not working

Did you check the bulbs? If one bulb is burned out, the blinkers won't word on that side. You could have one bulb burned out on each side. Start the car, put left signal on. Check front and back lights. Is one light on but not blinking? If that's the case, the light that's not on at all is burned out and has broken the circuit so the good light stays on and won't blink. Check the other side. You also have a 'flasher' , actually 2. One for emergency flashers, one for the turn signals. It could be that the turn signal flasher is shot. You just have to unplug it to remove. It's probably located near the fuses. good luck countrycurt0
