    yeah ive done all of that yeah i was thinking the wiring has a sort have of the time it works and half it dont tried about 3 different lights nothing changes and after putting in a new light after it burns out after one month. i have no idea any more. i was thinking about wiring the side marker to that light so they both blink and would be on at all times when lights are on but whould i risk shorting that out or not getting correct power to both lights?

Sounds to me like you may have a short in your signal wiring or you aren't replacing the bulb with the recommended bulb size. The correct bulb size may be found in your owner's manual or at a wal*mart, they may have a little kiosk to help you find the exact replacement number. Any auto parts store can look up the number of the bulb you are trying to replace as well. I hope this helps. Good luck and don't forget to rate! Thank you!

    If you are talking about running a "bridge" wire from the positive signal wire of the side marker light to the turn signal, that might work. Worst case scenario if it does short, you'd just blow a fuse. Just make sure you are running the right wire. Use a wire tester to see which one is for the signal.

  • wraith0127 Mar 02, 2009

    Just be careful replacing the fuse with a higher amperage. The fuse was designed to prevent damage to your electrical system in case of a short and putting a higher amperage could cause an electrical fire. The amperage increase from one bulb to two won't be much so the original fuse may work best, also see if you can find out what size fuse was supposed to be in there, if someone replaced with a lower amperage, that may be the cause, too.

TURN SIGNALS


Hi

Did you check the fuses for the turn lights? Do the
parking lights work? If the parking lights work then you probably have a
problem either in the switch or in turn signal module thing.
The burned out bulb is what might be causing it not to blink... if one bulb is burned out you gotta replace it, make no difference if front or back,the left blinker will not work if the left front or rear bulb is bad.
same with the right side. if the front right or rear right turn signal
light is burned out it will not work.....get replacing the bulbs.Hope this solves your problem.Please rate me if my solution helped you.

Regards,

Right blinker dont blink but parking light works


There are 2 filaments in the bulb. One filament for the blinker and one for the parking light. All you need to do is replace the bulb and everything should work as expected. The blinker filament usually burns out first because of all the on/off cycles

Brake light and blinker on driver side does not work even after replacing bulb


I am assuming that the right (passenger side) turn signal light (blinker) is working fine. This will usually mean that the electronic flasher is not malfunctioning due to the fact that one side still works.

Since the right side brake light is working, I can also assume that the brake light switch is okay.

It is possible that more than one bulb may have been out. The quickest way to test this is to turn on the hazard lights and slowly walk around the vehicle. Make a note of which lights are flashing on one side of the car and compare that to the other side. One bad turn signal bulb (front or rear) is enough to prevent that whole side from blinking. It is also possible that a single bulb is responsible for both turn signal and stoplight. Make certain that the bulb that was replaced was not the back-up bulb. Replace all other bulbs found to be burned out.

And finally, check to see if there is power to the bulb socket. If it is a double-contact socket, there should be power to one of the contacts for "parking lights", while the other contact should be for "brake lights". Make sure the correct bulb was installed.

Right read blinker/break light dont work, turn signal blinks rapidly


It's the bulb. There are two filliments in the bulb. One is for when you turn your lights on and the other is for breaking and blinker flashing. When the break filliment goes bad it causes the blinker to flash very rapidly. 100% the bulb. Change it and all will be good again. P.S. if it were a fuse none of the break lights or blinkers would work.
