2001 Chev Silv 1500 Parking Lights Burn Out

My 2001 Chev. Silv. 1500 Parking light bulbs burn out consistantly after one month ( right side) and three months ( left side) First time visit to Dealer cost $50 diagnose & check elect. system, $32 for bulb replacement. Now I buy two bulbs $6 at parts store and take 1 hour to R/R the bulbs. The Dealer says they have no Technical Service Bulletins on this problem. I know two other Owners of Silv. 1500 with the same problem.

    The dealer checked the Electrical system ($50) I don't know how well or how extensive. They did say the Ground was OK. Filimate verticle or horizontal, I don't know . Will pull & check. Can't tell from looking in the light.. Thanks for the tips.

    wlucas, Unfortunately I have notice that same situation on a large number of Silverados, Tahoe's, Yukon's and such for several model years. I have not had the opportunity to investigate the issue.

    When your front bulb is in the "installed position in the front turn signal lens, does the filament lay in the horizontal or vertical position?

    Has anyone performed a voltage drop test on the 12 volt wire to the bulbs and the ground side of the bulbs?

    Let me know,

Have a 2003 Chevrolet silverado, right rear tail light does not burn when lights are on, this light will burn when brake is applied or when turn signal is used. What is the problem and how can it be fixed?

There are 2 filiments in the light bulb. One is for running lights and the other is for brake and turn signal lights. Simply replace the bulb and you should be ok.

Bypass head light switch and see what you get. Three items can cause your problem . The head light switch, flasher relay , shorts in circuit. I would go with switch.

I need the structions to replace the right side headlight.

First take out a 1/2 inch socket, 5/16 wrench and remove the battery. Hidden by the battery is a horn which is removed by removing the 1/2 inch screw. Now you have access to both the left and right low beam headlamps.

You need access to both because the other headlamp is about ready to burn out.

Next, take the largest screw driver in your box and use it to lift the tabs on the headlamp connector. Use a shop light or flashlight to see, but the tabs lift from the top. Gently wiggle the connector downward until it releases.

AFTER disconnecting the connector, the bulb assembly should turn counter clockwise a full 40 degrees and stop. After rotating the assembly, pull/wiggle the bulb assembly straight back from the light assembly.

Buy a pair of bulb assemblies and reverse process.

I have a 1993 chevy 1500 and everytime i turn on the parking or headlight my right turn signal wont blink and stays on , also when i have the lights off and step on the brake the parking lights go on

Sounds like you 've got a cross connection in the rear right taillight bulb, or wiring to that area.
Start by pulling the bulbs out and checking if it makes any difference with the bulb removed. Check the brake pedal...see if the parking lights still come on.
Look at the bulb socket contacts, and the bulb contacts and look for black marks, or burned out filament in the bulb.. if everything looks good there, start tracing the wiring back and look for cuts or a place where the wiring may have been pinched, cut, bared etc. if your right turn signal isn't working and the parking lites are getting triggered, it's got to be in that right rear taillight or wiring...

2001 toyota corolla parking lights stay on

Most likely a bad headlamp switch, UNLESS you have a remote starter hooked up. Corollas with a body computer really do not like remote starters, they cause really bizaare things to happen.
