I think your parking light and turn signal use the same bulb with two filaments (if they are in the same socket/fixture). One filament is probably burned out. You'll need to replace the double-filament bulb.
Front or rear? If its the rear light, you should check inside your trunk. Move any liner that may be over the light housings, and look for fasteners, usually plastic wing nut types, that you can remove and lift out the whole tail light assembly. Once out, you can change the individual bulbs.
If it's the front turn signal, I think that's part of the headlight assembly, and you may have to remove the whole assembly to get at the bulbs. Look for screws in the top cross member, and in the panel next to the radiator to remove the assembly.
you'll need a 10mm socket and a 1/4 in drive rachet, look around headlight assamble you have to remove 3 hex head screws 2 will be in front of head light 1 above and 1 below, then the 3rd will be in the lower corner next to turn signal light ,once you remove all bolts there is a rubber strip around headlight on edge of grill very carefully remove the three black molding buttons ,next you'll have to pull outwards on assamble till you feel it release then carefully reach around back of headlight assamble and turn bulb housing to left and remove bulb and replace ,reassemble in reverse making sure you you line up mounting post before pushing it back in ,it may take some force to set it back in, PS . check to make sure it works before you put it all back in. good luck .
I hope this helps you if it did please let me know by clicking on helpful -yes .thank you .
This is commonly an earthing problem, but can also be caused by a wrong bulb or blown bulb. Check all bulbs, and that they are tight in their bulb holders, with clean contacts. The stop\tail bulbs can short out inside the glass from one filament to the other. Bulbs sometimes look black when the burn out and try earthing the light assemblys with a small test lead( with an aligator clip either end)
Sounds like you have a bad left rear light bulb, as far as the Left Front headlight i would check to make sure you have power and grounds at the connector, if you dont trace the wiring down and check fuses , the grounds should be close to the source.
If you are Replacing the REAR BULB Look Along the RUBBER SEALFOR 2 SCREWS and REmove them this will Free the INTIRE TAIL LIGHT and Give you Access to the Bulbs.it is self Explanitory After this. If it is THE FRONT BULB Open hood and Look at the top of Headlight Lense Just Behind it but On TOP and REMOVE the 1 10mm Bolt to Free the Intire HEADLIGHT and you will See the Turn Sygnal BULB on the OUTSIDE END of the HEADLIGHT LENSE and It TOO Is self EXPLANITORY.
the front of the car and open the hood. Locate the two screws that
mount the headlight assembly to the front of the vehicle. The screws are on top of the assembly at both ends. Use a Phillips head
screwdriver to remove the screws. Pull the headlight assembly straight
off of the Intrepid.
the turn signal electrical connector at the outer side of the headlight
assembly. There is a thick wire coming out of it. Turn the electrical
bulb socket counterclockwise to take it out of the headlight assembly.
Pull the turn signal bulb straight out of the electrical socket.
in a new turn signal bulb. Reinstall the electrical socket with the new bulb in it to the
headlight assembly. Turn the socket clockwise until it is tight. Push
the headlight assembly back in place on the car and use and screwdriver to put the mounting screws back in.
What may have happened is either the headlights wiring or the parking lights wiring somewhere along the wiring fused to the left turn signals wiring. Depending on if the turn signals go on when you put the parking lights on or the headlights on.
If the signals come on when you turn on the headlights than you only need to locate the light green wire that comes off the left turn signal harness.
Next follow that wire the entire way back to the firewall looking for another wire fused to that wire as you go.
If there are no signs of this you need to continue looking on the other side of the firewall all the way back to the turn signal and hazard flasher unit which is a black box that connects to a black harness located next to a grey harness behind the knee bolster.
But if the signals come on when you turn on the parking lights than you will also need to check the wiring from the rear left signal and follow that light green wire all the way back to the turn signal and hazard flasher unit.
This should fix your problem, but if not than your problem may lay within the the wiring between the turn signal/hazard switches and the turn signal and hazard flasher unit.
Also you may have a burnt circuit in the junction block. This block is where the light green from the rear left signal and front left signal meet. Don't have a description but if you cannot find it let me know and I will go out to the yard and look myself and let you know.
