SOURCE: how do you resolve low beam bulb failure?

I CHECKED THIS ISSUE OUT FOR YOU. ALL YOU ARE REQUIRE TO DO IS REPLACE THE LOW BEAM.. GO TO ANY ADVANCED ATUO PARTS STORE AND PICK UP FOR ABOUT$13.. WHEN INSTALLING THE NEW LOW BEAM USE A RAG, OR CLOTH TO HANG ON THE GLASS OF THE NEW BULB..YOU CANT USE YOUR FINGERS TO PUT THE NEW BULB IN, THE OILS OFF OF YOUR FINGER TIP WILL MESS WITH THE LIFE OF THE NEW LOW BEAM... SHOULD BE A VERY SIMPLE TASK.. GOOD LUCK KEITH...

Agreed, you can do one of two things. Replace the alternator, or get some new brushes and try out your soldering skills. Good luck.

Brake lights rear blinkers quit working when turn signal is on flashes really fast


You simply have a burned out bulb or bulbs. With the key turned on turn on the directional for the left side and then the right side. Typically one bulb is blown and the opposite side works normally. Observe the normal side and note which is the flashing bulb. It is the flashing bulb on the other (malfunctioning) side that needs to be replaced. To replace the bulb you must remove the entire brakelight assembly, which isn't difficult. Open the trunk and locate the electrical harness that lines up with the brakelight assembly. Near the harness, locate the two (possibly three) nuts or wingnuts that attach the brakelight assembly to the car. Once the nuts are removed, the assembly can be pulled off the rear of the car. After replacing the bulb, be sure to test the operation of the new bulb before reassembling everthing.

96 900 SE turbo, brake light and tail light failure on SID. go to put car in reverse and car stalls, Note, License plate bulbs are out as well as 1 of the rear fog light bulbs, don't know if that would...


1996 SAAB 900 SE Brakelight Failure SID info
- stalls in reverse etc.

The problem lies with the grounding point in the left rear body cavity on the floor, see the diagram.
Rust eventually destorys the ground and the car will not run in reverse nor do the backup lignts or the rear hatch defroster work amongst other things
Re-attach the grounding wire to an existing welded stud on the side body panel and the problem is solved.

1993 Accord: My break lights are out-how do i fix them?...


if both of your brakelights are out it is most likely to be a fuse other than the bulbs themselves.take the cover off the fusebox and on the back of the cover there should be a drawing telling you what fuse is for what.check and replace if need be.hopefully this helps

Brake lights won't come on changed switch and checked fuses under dash are there more fuses


Remove the brakelight bulb holder, If you pop out the entire assembly it will save your knucles some skin. Then you want to take some fine sandpaper and clean the contacts "on the housing" well, and coat the with a thin film of dielctric grease or vaseline. I'm sure this will resolve your problem. I've had to do this to numerous Volvo vehicles over the years. Also once you're finished, the dash indicator may "not" go out unless you purchase the bulbs from Hella because of their candlepower exclusivity.

1995 Volvo 850 - Headlights and brake lights are out


Hi Metzgerism!

No tools are needed to do such replacements, as both head- and brake-lights are accessible by simply removing panels/caps that cover them. For the headights there are caps that can be twisted and removed, while for the brakelights you need to carefully pry open a panel on the rear post.

Good luck!

PS: You seem to have double-posted your question, so I  just posted the same reply here as on the other one.

1991 buick regal brakelight and left signal


I would check the wire leads to the light inside the truck. The trunk seals are prone to leaking and cause the exposed wires and leads to rust out. If they are dirty or rusted up, pull out one wire connector at a time from the wire harness plug going into the light. Take a fine grit sandpaper and clean it up. If the break off or are brittle, go to your local Radio Shack and pick up some new ones for about a buck. Cut the old ones off the wire and crimp the new ones on with a pair of needle nose pliers... Easy cheap fix...
