    Thanks.....I finally just went and took it out. This bulb hadn't been removed in many years, so it was kind of stuck in there!

All signals and other flashers work but passenger front flashers do not work


Use a test light, test for power and ground at the bulb contacts. Then test for power and ground at the wires. Probably needs a new socket, common problem.

97 TAURUS HAVE BRAKE LIGHTS - NO BACKUP LIGHTS WHATS THE PROBLEMS?


The lights may be burnt out or the fuse may be blown. I would start with the bulbs. Please see the owners manual for the directions on how to replace the bulbs.

Hope this helps.

Parking and backup lights quit working.everything else works including instrument lights.checked fuses and parking light relay both are good. Can someone please come up with a suggestion.


Try checking out your light bulbs in parking and backup light locations. Sometimes when one bulb goes out or just comes loose, it stops the entire circuit from operating.

The brake lights for 1990 Ford Taurus won't work, but the 3rd brake light does.


It could be the turn signal switch. I think that car uses the same bulb for the rear turn signals as they do for the brake lights. If that's the case the power for the brake lights is routed through the turn signal switch. The nice thing about that car is the switch is easy to change. Take the shroud loose around the steering column and the switch is held on with two screws.

I have a 98 Ford Taurus -- turn signals work, but no brake lights when brake pedal is pushed? Does this sound like a fuse, switch or bulb problem?


i had the same problem in my ranger, check fuses, wires, possibly one bulb is bad, i had to rewire mine because of a burnt wire.

How do i replace the license plate lights on my 1990 honda accord. i can't get the bulb out of the socket


You should have two license plate lights, right above the license plate. If you remove the two screws that hold the one you want to change in, the entire fixture will drop down(best to do this with the trunk open). Remove the metal clip plate that covers the bulb. The bulb SHOULD simply pull directly out.
Hope this helps you.

I have a ford taurus 95 and the passenger brake lite and blinker is not working but when u put the lites on the bulbs work but still no brake lite and blinker


You most likely need a new bulb in that location.
It is a dual filament bulb......one filament for the brake and signal and one for the running light ....both in the same bulb.
Remove the old bulb and get a replacement bulb using the # printed on the old bulb.

How do I change a headlight bulb in a 2003 focus?


Drivers side: Remove plastic cover on rear of headlamp by pushing down on long wire clip.Pull cover outwards and downwards to release the two clips on top of cover.
Remove wiring connection from rear of bulb.
You will now find that a mirror and torch will come in handy.Using the mirror you will see that the bulb is held in place with a spring clip that locates under a metal lug on the headlamp.Push the clip so that it releases from the lug and swing the clip away from the bulb.Remove old bulb.
Insert new bulb making sure the locating tab is in the correct position.[Use the mirror to check].
Replace spring clip.
Reconnect electrics.
Replace rear cover and long wire clip.

Passenger side:Little more difficult.Remove battery cover and follow the same instructions as for the drivers side.Not so much room to work this side though.
Do not touch the glass parts of the bulbs whilst changing them and if you do clean the glass with metholated spirits before fitting.
