Lt frnt turn signal bulb and lt headlamp not working, replaced tu
Lt fr turn signal and lt hlamp not working, replaced turn signal bulb, still not working, bulbs look good. Im not sure but the headlamp may have gone out when I was replacing the turn signal bulb or may have quit at the same time. The other blinkers on that side work but blink very fast. Thanks, Grady

Do you know how to do voltage drop testing ? Leave the blubs in there sockets turn the low beams on , measure voltage on the power side , LH low beam yellow with black stripe an for the RH low beam dark blue wire . If you have battery voltage there, power side is good . Then check ground side both are yellow wires , test with lights on . if you see 6 volts , 12 volts .anything more then .03 millivolts you have a ground side problem . The lights ground through the light switch .
Voltage to the headlamp switch is available at all times from the HDLP SW fuse 7 through CKT 1940 (ORN). When the headlamp switch is turned to the HDLP position, the headlamp power relay coil is energized through CKT 352 (WHT). A signal is also sent to the body control module (BCM) that the headlamp switch is ON. When the headlamp switch is in the AUTO or PARK position, the ambient light sensor (located in the right speaker grill) senses either daylight or darkness and sends the signal to the BCM. When the Ambient Light Sensor detects a dark condition, the BCM produces a signal that will energize the headlamp power relay through CKT 352. The relay coil is grounded through terminal F7 connector 2 of the underhood fuse block to CKT 350 (BLK) to G102. When the headlamp power relay is energized the relay supplies power to the LT HDLP and RT HDLP fuses. The RH low beam headlamp receives current through CKT 198 (DK BLU) from the RT HDLP fuse. The LH low beam headlamp receives current through CKT 712 (YEL/BLK) from the LT HDLP fuse. Both headlamp low beam bulbs are grounded by CKT 524 (PPL) through the underhood fuse block to the multifunction switch (low position) contacts through CKT 10 (YEL) to the headlamp grounding relay in the body relay block through the normally closed contacts to CKT 1850 (BLK) to G200.
the front lights for the park lights work off of a separate filament and wire circuit than the signal light.you may just need to replace the bulbs at the front of the car.it may also be a bad socket for the signal lights only and not the park lights.

Turn lamp socket and wiring (13410) assembly 1/2 turn counterclockwise and remove from parking lamp (13200) housing.
Remove screw from park/turn signal housing.
Using 1/4 inch drive socket extension and swivel, insert tool through two access holes in upper radiator support. Remove screws from park/turn signal housing.
remove the mounting screw on the lens, then remove the top 2 bolts holding the headlamp, pull headlamp out to gain access to the mounting nut on the turn signal. Remove the nut and the turn signal light will pull straight out allowing you to replace the bulb.

CAUTION: Halogen bulbs contain gas under pressure. Handling a bulb improperly could cause it to shatter into flying glass fragments. To help avoid personal injury:
Turn off the lamp switch and allow the bulb to cool before changing the bulb.
Leave the lamp switch OFF until the bulb change is complete.
Always wear eye protection when changing a halogen bulb.
Handle the bulb only by its base. Avoid touching the glass.

You have a short in the front turn signal bulb. The reason it flashes faster is too much resistance due to a shorted bulb. I the bulb was out but not shorted it would flash slower or not at all. To fix this problem replace the front turn signal bulb that does'nt illuminate.
