Driver side turn signal light

The bulb is fine, and it turns on when lights are turned on. But it does not come on when turn signal is initiated, nor when remote key is pressed (either opening or closing)

    I did try a new bulb, but thought comes to mind that it is a biased bulb and may require installation with the right bias - will try it again.

    Thanks

You say the bulb is fine. It's probably a dual (2) element bulb, and one element is blown, thus runs on running lights but not on blinker which is another brighter element. Did you try a new bulb?

    make sure all contact in socket are clean too. Spray with WD-40 or similar if needed.

Turn signal and break light


Make sure all the bulbs are working in the turn signal. Some front turn signals will use two or more bulbs per side. If any one of these bulbs are burned out it will cause the turn signal to flash at a fast rate. It also could be a bad control lighting control switch a.k.a. multi-function switch.

Side lights dont work


Fuse sure didn't play, bulb is unlikely to be all bad. Check the turn signal switch, first find the turn signal switch plug, put the key to ON file, in trying to find a turn signal lamp switch wire (flash to the thread) will this wire with no light ON one side of the turn signal line connected to see if a turn signal light, the light is turn signal switch is broken, or the plug contact undesirable, don't light it is turn signal switch to light ON one side of the light path, in order to determine whether the light bulb is broken can open a small lamp or led brake lights to borrow their wire leads to a turn signal whether turn signal light, so you can determine whether the light bulb not bright side is broken.auto diagnostic tool.

Turn signal bulb was working, now it isnt


its is not uncommon for the contacts in the sockets to become corroded or just expand to the point of where they do not contact the bulb,try to test the socket with a multimeter for voltage,if it has voltage then its most likely the contacts,which sometimes can be rebent,but replaceing the sockets is a better solution,and can be picked up at most stores or 4x4 shops and junk yards.

When i press brake pedal driver side brake light quits working but other wise it works fine?


That has a double filament bulb in it. One is for the tail light and the other for the brake and maybe the turn signal. If your turn signal flashes the tail light and not an individual turn signal bulb it will behave the same way. The way it works is that the tail light filament goes off and the brighter brake light filament comes on. The brake light half of the bulb is out. If you change it, change the passenger side too, it will do the same shortly if you leave it in. They tend to go bad in pairs. Good luck.

2001 Explorer Sport ,Rear Driver Brake Light and Turn Sig. Broke


Rear lights are double filament bulbs one side for the lights other side for the brake/turn signals so it still may be a bulb. Do u have a test light or volt meter you can check to make sure u have power there when brakes or turn signals are activated. Or just try another bulb.
