Question about 1999 Audi A6

Turn signal shorting out

I have a 1999 A6. My drivers side turn signal inside the headlight housing is not working. The bulb is fine and I replaced to make sure, but when I turn the signal on it pulses very rapidly and the actual light does not work. I pulled out the bulb sockett and there is a small amount of corosion or ''''black'' (from short?) on one of the three conections were it goes into the housing. I cleaned it off but it did not fix the problem and the fuse in the fuse box is fine. Any ideas?

I have had this problem. The hot bulb melts part of the housing the bulb contact are in and this interfears with the 12+ contact to the bulb. The melted plastic must be scraped away to get this to function properly. Remember to pull your fuse before doing this. You may also have to remove the headlight to do this. The front bumper must be removed to remove the headlight.

Turnsignals normal with headlights off.But , blink real fast when headlights on


Check you running light bulb.. some of those have two elements in them and one side could be blow inside the single bulb. The blinking is how the car tells you that you have a bad bulb, or maybe a short. Mostly likely it just a bulb.

Turn signal bulb out


That is probably the relay, start replacing the turn indicators relay.

If thet does not work , then it is probably a short on the instrument panel stick.

Check also the indicator fuse.

Marker lights wont go on


on 1998 and earlier models, the side marker light housing is located next to the headlight housing. Remove the screws and pull out the housing to access the bulbholder on the back of the housing. On 1999 and later models, the park and turn signal bulbs are located in the bottom of headlight housing. Twist the bulbholders out to replace the park or turn signal bulbs. Installation is the reverse of the removal directions.

99 toyota sienna right turn signal lights up when headlight are on. It dosn't flash through flasher or manually, works fine when headlight switch is off


Chances are you have a short or a bad ground in the circuit.
I would check for voltage and ground at the sockets for that side.
The parking light voltage is grounding thru the turn signal side thru the indicator lamp on the dash.

99 yukon denali drivers side turn signal in rear tail light not working, i replaced bulb and still nothing, I looked at the connections and wires and found nothing, front turn signal blinks fast, passenger...


The circuit board needs to be replaced. Which is the board that the bulbs sit in. If you remove the turn signal bulb. You will notice the bulb socket will be slightly burnt inside. I had the same problem with my 99 Denali and replaced the circuit board for $35.00. Now everything is fine.

I have taken my car to many shops to solve this problem. Long story short your tail light has a bad circut and entire lamp must be replaced. (Lamp cost approximate $130.00)
