REAR LIGHTS AND FLASHERS IS NOT WORKING


Hi there
your problem is either Light switch, broken wire from switch or from the fuse box or broken wires from switch to rear end which should run down 1 side of car coming from front to rear via in sill [thats in the side by the seats in side under the carpet either side] or it could be a earth wire broken so remove the rear light cover and turn on the rear light and touch a wire from any metal service to globe holder if it lights the globe then fir a wire to any light to earth and every thing should work.

My right front turn signal wont work, the dash board light came on telling me i need a new bulb i put one in and it still does'nt work . I checkd all fuses and they are good , me right rear turn l


are you sure that you put the right bulb in? Some of these bulbs look very similar, (like a 3057 and 3157 or 3156) but they are different. A customer came in with this problem and the problem was that they put a bulb with a single filament in when it was supposed to have a dual filament. the bulbs looked the same and they just grabbed them off the shelf instead of asking the parts guy what their vehicle called for.

I have a 2000 Mitsubishi mirage and my left turn signal on the rear stays on when I switch the head lights on I switch out all the bulbs and put a new, headlight -turn signal switch combo on so what else...


It sounds like a bad earth connection in the vehicle rear wiring loom. If you have a multimeter test for continuity of the earth wires with the globes removed to prevent any false readings. Check the earth wire that runs from the all the globe sockets in the left hand light unit and any connector blocks in the wiring loom near the light assemblies as well as where the earth wire is attached to the body. If necessary, remove, clean thoroughly by removing any corrosion or paint and re-attach securely.

1997 Ford Light Duty F-250 Problem: Passenger rear brake light / signal light Brake light is intermittent. Signal works most of the time. Emer. flasher is intermittent. Center & left side work fine....


It appears that you may have an intermittent earth connection between the globe sockets and the vehicle body.
First, check how well the metal base of the globe fits into the socket. If it is a bit loose remove the globe, squeeze the sides of the metal socket with some pliers so that the globe fits snugly in the socket. If it is still not working correctly, check the earth wire that runs from the globe socket and any connectors in the wiring loom near the Light Assembly as well as where the earth wire is attached to the body. Remove, clean and re-attach securely if necessary.

I don't have any rear tail lights


If both the taillights are out, it's most likely a fuse. Locate the fusebox and replace the fuse that handles them. If it blows again, you have a short in the wiring.

How to change left turn signal bulb


Rear. 2 retainers PLUS a very tight ball socket holding the light assembly into place. Be ready to catch the tail light when you pop it of the ball socket.
Front. Use the headlight removal tool in the tool kit. Open front bonnet and push down and remove tear shape trim on headlight side in question. Place headlight tool onto spline and with one hand ready to "catch" the headlight, turn the tool until headlight pushes forward. Then remove headlight by hand and replace globe as required. Be careful of bayonet fitting. Can be fragile.

You will need to start tracing the wiring. I have found "green" wiring in these vehicles for many electrical problems. Start at the front and work your way back.
