2005 buick rendezvous left brakelight will stop working after driving for about 10/15 minutes.have replaced bulb and checked fuses now it doesn't work at all


I would suspect a bad socket, this type that use the push in bulbs,(like a 3057 and 3157) are known for bad contact even if it looks good. Try to wiggle the bulb to see if it lights up, if so replace the socket. Hope this helps and 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.

All indicators have stopped working


You have the wrong bulb in!

The bulb with the offset pins is a stop / tail bulb, it has two elements and two contacts on the bottom. Typically they are 5 watts element for the taillight and 18 or 21 watts for the stoplight. The offset pins make it so it will only go in one way so the contacts line up to the correct function of Stop light or Tail light. Some cars have combination stop tail bulbs, some have a single 18 watt bulb at the back. The FRONT light indicators are always a single element.

You can see the two elements, the two contacts and the two offset pins in this image.

I have a 2001 Subaru Outback wagon, LL Bean Edition. I just noticed that the left rear brakelight, tail light and blinker light do not work. I replaced the brakelight bulb but the brakelight does not...


Owners manuel chapter 11 & 12 should show you the fuse box placement and layout..there are two fuse boxes, inside behind the coin holder to the left of the steering wheel, slide out the holder..I believe #5 on the fuse box is the fuse for tail/brake lights. Also under the hood in the engine compartment on drivers side there is the main fuse box.

1997 Back Left TailLight


For this problem and future ones that involve electrical stuff, I recommend buying a cheap digital multimeter. They can be had for <$20 US at auto parts stores or electronic parts stores, are easy to use and provided with brief Chinglish instructions (that sometimes are good for a laugh!). 
You need to turn on your lights and measure between any contacts you find more central to the socket and the exposed metal shell of the socket.
If you are finding any voltage there, no bulb on earth will work.
Your Golf may have multiple fuse circuits so you need to check continuity of the fuses that could affect that light; continuity is another thing you can measure with your new meter!  There will likely be two different functions available, one of resistance and the other indicated with the standard symbol for a diode that looks like and arrow pointing to a bar with lines from either end.

Turn signal/hazard light inoperable---left front only


I recommend replacing the pig tail that holds the burnt signal bulb.  These tails are available at most auto parts stores for about $10.  Coat the contacts for the bulb in dielectric grease to prevent reccurance.  I have done this several times, cheap, quick and easy.  This is a very common problem on F-bodies, just take note as you see them driving at you on the highway with one DRL on and one off.  Good luck.
