Question about Cars & Trucks
She has changed the bulbs and it doesn't work
There should be a fuse, and a reset button somewhere on the back or top of the unit. Its probably gonna be a pain in the *** to get to.

SOURCE: We were changing the right
yes. you could have blow a fuse, as if you were wiggling it around, could of shorted it out with positive on ground contact, which could blow the fuse. Check in your fuse panel, should be marked as break lights or turn signals, and most likely fuse has been blow. If this solves that, now back to the beginning. You said, that might be missing a clip or something, best thing to do, is open other side that you know works,(left front blinker) look to see how it looks and compare to right side, and that should tell you what possible clip or part is missing. Get a couple back up fuses, in case happens again, while trying to fix this right side bulb. I am sure, in this case, if no lights work now, it is a fuse.
Please let me know if this works, and if there is ANYTHING i can do to help you more through this fix it job. If I did help, please respond in comment and/or checking on thumbs up of help area. Thanks Mike

More than likely it's not all the bulbs that are burnt out. Your head lights work like a relay if one bulb is bad then none of them work. Try looking for the bad bulb (this will require you to pull the head light assembly a part to look at the bulbs) what you are looking for is blackening around the clear part of the bulb, also if you pull the bulb out of the socket and give it a bit of a shake does it make a rattling sound? If so then it's bad.
In regards to your left turn signal have you replaced the bulbs or check to see if they are burnt out as well? The also operate as a relay and will not work if one is burnt out.
You may be right about it being a switch. If you have the time, take the door panel off which can sometimes be a pain, **** worth it. Check to make sure the wires are still connected properly. If they are then i would look in and around the window tract to see if there is anything that could be impeding the window from going down. Other wise it could be a bad button system and just the drivers side button is shot. You may have to replace that. Hope this helps. Good luck.

If the other one is working then there is something wrong with the wireing between the two of them, or the connection in the light or the bulb contacts are dirty in the holder.

Try reading the OBDII with a code reader and see what it is then erase codes and see if it stays off ,could be more than one circuit on this fuse so the fuse blowing has thrown the light on for whatever reason ,Also try disconnecting the battery just out of interest for a few minutes and reconnect it might go out if your lucky
