You need to buy the whole signal stick assembly and switch with the attached wiring harness connector at a salvage yard. They should be interchangeable1986-1993.

Lower brake lights only work when I manipulate turn signal. Any idea how to fix this problem?


Sounds like you need a new turn signal switch. The lower brake lights are wired through the turn switch. When you fiddle with the turn lever with brake pedal pressed, you are making old worn contacts touch again. A new or even used turn switch should make it work right again.

I had the same problem on a 92 & 95 Dakota years ago, replaced the turn signal switch in the column & found a loose ground wire in the harness back by the tail lights. Never had a problem again. If you're gonna try to replace the switch you will need tamper proof torques bits just FYI. Good luck. Let us know how it turns out.

Front turn signals work intermittently, side signals work as well as the rear


Loose connection at the sockets or joints. Check bulb seating at sockets (new sockets can be loose-Fong Kong) and clean cable connections

Mazda eletrical right side indicator not working


Remove the bulb and either replace it or check to see if it is good with an ohm meter. If the bulb is good check to see if the connection is corroded. If so, make sure the power is off and clean the connection throughly with a wire brush or other tool. If there is no corrosion check to see if you have 12 volts DC at the connection with a volt meter set to 20 volts DC. If the bulb is good, it is clean, and you do not have voltage then you have a wiring problem. Work you way backward and check for a loose or cut wire.

I have a 2001 Pontiac Firebird. When i start my car, my left turn signal light comes on but the right front turn signal light remains off. If i turn my lights on, the right turn signal light then comes...


Perhaps a dicky connection somewhere. Perhaps corrosion, even moisture in the connection plugs. Inspect all connections to your indicator lights. Also check for worn or damaged wires. Also Have a look inside the lenses of the lights to see if the the globes are corroded or have water ingress etc and causing shorts to other wiring within the lighting circuits.

You may also consider turn indicator lever to on to indicate truniong right, make sure the engine off. Have someone watch right indicator and literally grab the plugs/leads to the indicator globe and give them a shake to see if the fault goes away. If it doe stop intermitantly then it will help point you in the correct area.

While a fast flash usually indicates a burned out bulb, you've obviously covered these bases. Your next step should be to check the turn signal solenoid, also called a turn signal "flasher", as these ususally cost between $6 and $12. If that doesn't fix your problem, you may be looking at a new turn signal switch (that's what they're called, even though they control the headlights, too.) Just make sure you exhaust all other options, as these cost around $270.

Right turn signal won't work after replacing bulb 2004Range Rover


I've had the same problem. It is the actual socket that the bulb plugs into - it is defective. Try removing the light unit and turning the bulb a bit (with the indicator on) and you'll see that it will slow down once it makes contact. Very annoying!!!! RR should have had that fixed ages ago. May need new socket.
