Signal light broken

How do I change /replace the rear signal light bulb on Saturn 200 L 2001 ? the front signal light is still working so Im hoping its not an electrical problem as I have had many electrical things go wrong intermittently. The dealer sold me the used car 8 years ago but gave me a Saturn 2004 car manual. Can I download the car user manual somewhere? Thankyou Laura GK

    Thankyou so much, we were able to replace the lamp with all the advice given easily. It is intermittently working now, seems to be loose connection cause when we tap on the back light casing it comes back on but mostly works

    If you take the bulb back out and very carefully bend the wire prongs out just a tiny bit, it will tighten it up some. Glad it worked.

You will need a torx screwdriver. Open trunk, and on the side of trunk where light is, you will see 2 screws. Undo them and light casing will pop right out. Turn the round socket counter clockwise and viola! There's the bulb. Pull old bulb out and place new one in. . Test light and when putting the casing back in , make sure it goes in right before putting the screws back in. Good luck I hope this helps please rate this solution thanks

SOURCE: 2002 Saturn Vue Ignition Cylinder lock problem

The keys on this vehicle have a problem with wearing down to the point where it's a pain to get them to work in the ignition cylinder. Examine your keys for wear and that may have been your problem since day one.
I have a 2004 Vue and I have the only key I got with it (used car) worn down to the point where it will no longer work in the back door and is a pain to use in the ignition cylinder. It also falls right out of the ignition cylinder when the car is running. I have a copy of the key that was made when I got the car which works just fine and doesn't fall out, and looking at the two side by side, you can see that Saturn's key has worn down substantially since I got it two years ago.

SOURCE: 2004 saturn vue Replaced battery. Radio and Cd no longer work.

Turn off the car and remove the negative battery cable off. let sit a few minutes then reconnect the cable. try it several times. The removal of the battery causes the computer to deprogram itself. what you will be doing is re-programming the computer module.

SOURCE: How do you get to the front turnsignal bulb to

Open the hood and look behind the headlamp assembly and you should see some clips / pins. Pull up on the retaining pins and the headlamp should slide forward and out of the way. You will then see the electrical connector, disconnect it. Look at where the signal assembly is and you should see the socket for the bulb, just twist counter clockwise and it will pop out for you to change

Possible Causes
The following are malfunctions that could cause a rich condition:
^ Fuel pressure too high. Perform fuel pressure test.
^ Leaking fuel injector(s). - Perform pressure leak down test.
^ Vacuum leak around the MAP sensor grommet.
^ Oxygen sensor contamination.
^ Restricted exhaust or air intake.
^ Fuel Vapor Canister saturated with fuel.

IMPORTANT:
If the front oxygen reading voltage is above 600 mV and the rear HO2S is above 600 mV all the time, the O2 sensors are probably not
at fault.

I have a Chevrolet cobalt and the left turn signal will not work the inside light on dash flashes fast. I have changed the light bulb still doesn't work.


Fast flashing usually indicates that one of the exterior bulbs isn't functioning. You've checked front and rear signal lights, right? If the bulb is good, it could be corrosion in the socket, bad ground, broken wire, etc.

Fast flashing turn signals


I would change out the turn signal bulb on the right front. A blown bulb can cause the fast flash issue. The signals staying on is not related to the bulb being blown. That is most likely a problem with the multifunction switch, the knob you use to signal.

My Turn Led Signal Can Not Blink


The LED lamps are not plug-in replacements for incandescent ones because they place a much lower load on the flasher.

You are going to have to check wiring. Many it is the socket. If you have a test light or meter you can measure the voltage.

There are several turn signal lights, front, rear, side, etc. Do any of them work on the drivers side? if not then it may be the column switch. If only one light is out, then it will be wiring somewhere. Chasing wiring problems is as hard as chasing hydraulic problems, requires patience and starting at one end and continuing till you find the problem.

Good luck, Jim

Signal light blinking too fast


I just had that problem with my jeep cherokee and either your bulb has burned out or it is burning out. Time to replace it. Turn the signal light lever on the side that's flashing fast, get out of the vehicle and look at the front and back signal lights and replace the one that isn't blinking...hope this helps.

2004 Saturn Ion blinker problem!


Usually when the turnsignal blinks rapid this is a indicator that the turn signal bulbs is blown, you will need to check both the front and rear signal to see which is not working, and then change the blown bulb or bulbs.

1998 pontiac transport/montana has not tail or break lights...turn signals blink fast or not at all. changed rear bulbs and noticed carbon on front build up on front bulbs. Help!


If one of the filaments in the bulbs is burned out, the remaining working lights will flash alot quicker.
Check the bulbs, and replace if the filaments are broken.
If the front bulb has a carbon build up it blown out...change it..
Once the bulbs are replaced your signals should work properly.

Front signal light not working and rear signal lights flashing fast on 1999 intrigue


Your front turn signal socket is shot. Buy a new one at the dealer for about 30.00. It will fix it. You may be able to clean it and wiggle it to get it to work. But it wont last very long. I had the same problem. Replaced the socket and it is fine. Note: If one side is bad the other side it not far behind. Probably 2 or 3 months it will go also. Good Luck.
