Left blinker does not work front binks fast switched out both sides and it still does not work


Is the rear light working if not replace the bulb. If the light is working then try the flasher but you will find I think that you have a bad turn signal switch.

Saab centre consil lighter not working


interior fuse box lower dash drivers side the lid will give the fuse location etc . the rear 'lighter socket ' is usually for 12v auxillary input lead ie tyre compressor , unless it had a lighter in it, don't use this as a lighter socket as will blow fuse , the same may be for the front as most cars i've seen post 2008 dont have cigarette lighter's only 12v AUX sockets . check with your drivers handbook

I can't get power to my lighter and 12v plug up front in my 2005 kia sedona


remove the socket and check the connections, then test with a test light top see if you have power there, disconnection is the most common problem.

2005 Cadillac Escalade 12V outlet problems


Could be debris in the socket of each outlet. You would need to gain access to the back of the sockets to check for power and ground.
Keep in mind you may have a fuse for the outlets and another for the actual cig lighter.

Why both turn signals don't work


For the defroster:

Turn the defroster on and check for 12v at the connector on the window. If you have 12v, check for breaks in the element (the thin lines running across the window). If you do not have 12v and the fuse is good, the culprit will most likely either be the switch or the wiring.

For the right park light:

Check the bulb socket. You should have 12v at one terminal (with the park lights on) and ground at the other. If the voltage and ground are ok, you either have a bad bulb or possibly a bad socket. By bad socket I mean they can sometimes distort and not allow the terminals to make good enough contact.

Hope this was helpful.

2008 Chevy Cobalt front right turn signal is not working. Back right signal blinks fast. Left signals work just fine. I tried replacing the bulb and it did not work. Do I need to replace the...


No - headlight ok.
The reason that the Right turn signal blinks fast is that there is half the normal load (resistance)
on the right side, since the Right front turn signal isn't working.
Since you replaced the Right front turn signal bulb, your problem lies in the bulb socket or
the wiring to the socket.
(1) try cleaning out the socket - there's probably a contact problem in the socket. You
may need to squeeze the contacts together to provide good contact to the socket contact.
(2) if contacts inside the socket are ok, try back-probing the socket - to make sure that the
socket is getting 12V DC to light the bulb. Replacing a bulb socket is easy, and commonly done.
Any auto parts dtore should be able to sell you a new socket - its just a matter of cutting out the
old one, and then splicing in the new one. Most shops will use small wire nuts, buried under several
wraps of E-tape (electrical tape).
(3) if bulb AND socket ok, you have the worst problem known to man - a wiring fault. In this case,
you'll want to run a new wire from the flasher module (under the dashboard) to the turn signal.

My brake lights do not come on when i press the brakes. i have changed the switch for the brake lights but I still get nothing, which wire do I need to change because the brake light wire on my 2000 Esteem...


If you have a meter.... check the bulb socket for 12V DC with someone applying the brake or watch for a 12V DC pulse on the meter when the meter leads are on the socket contact with the emergency flashers on. (+) lead to socket contact and ( - ) lead to chassis ground. If you have the 12V DC on the socket contact then there is a problem with the chassis ground wire.
The brake light socket has 2 terminals. One is for the tail light 12V DC power when the headlights are on and the other one is 12V DC only when the brake lights are supposed to be on. (i.e pulse hazard or brake applied light on)

Also check the BRAKE light fuse in the fuse box located on the front of the left kick panel wall drivers side with a black cover. (4" x 2.5") There is also a fuse and relay box on the left side of the engine compartment. (4" x 7")

The wire color connected to your NEW brake switch that leaves the switch for the tail lights is the same color on the rear of the car and terminates at the tail light assy quick disconnect connector.

Front turn signal does not blink when turned on. bulb lights when lights are turned on.


Have you checked the rear turn signal on the same side? Usually when one (1) turn signal stops blinking another bulb on the same side has failed. It can be rear or side lights but most of the time it is the rear light on the same side that has failed so the front light will not blink.

Also I would check to see if there was 12V when the turn signal is selected and a ground on the bulb socket. (signal off)

Does the bulb have one or 2 contacts on the base of the bulb besides the barell? If it is a 2 contact bulb (1157) then there are separate circuits for the turn and parkling lights. Follow the socket wires back to the connector and check to see if there is corrosion in the socket or the pigtail connector. All of the terminals socket and pigtail connector should be clean. Also check for signs of any breakdown in the wires especially around terminal ends.

Your dealing with a 2 wire series circuit... power and ground. It takes both to make the bulb light.

Check the ground for Zero (0) Ohms and power for 12V. One of them has to be missing and you will need to find out where the break is in the circuit.

Often the ground is provided by the turn signal selector but if the selector is bad all lights on the same side would not work. If the rear light works and the front light does not then your problem is probably very near the front light.

1. Dirty socket terminal
2. Poor pigtail connector connections
3. Broken chassis ground or power wire

Volvo V70 (2008) won't charge my cell phone. I thought it might be the phone charger itself, but I bought a new one and it doesn't work either.


Probably just the fuse.

Check if it works in the boot, you have a permanently live 12v socket in the boot. If it works on this one then it must be the fuse which controls the two front 12v sockects.

To access the fusebox - Carefully remove the cover underneath the dash board in the passenger footwell. It is held on by two clips, these are released by pushing the centre of the clip in.

Once you have the cover off remove the two front screws holding the fuse box in place, then carefully pull the fuse box down and towards you. The handbook will tell you which of the fuses relates to the 12v sockets. Remove the fuse and replace with a matching one, these can be purchased from most garage for around 10p.

Before replacing the fuse box check the socket works. If it doesn't then you will need to get it checked out by the dealer or an auto electrician.
