    does your jeep have the overhead console if so mine had a broken light that would make contact with the roof and pop the fuse if you pushed the light up too far iremovde the console to fix it and found the mounting holes were broken but there were extra ones so all ihad to do was relocate the screws and it was as good as new i glued the broken plastic mounts lust in case it gets broke again and taped the wires so they cant touch the roof anymore and it has been good every since directions to remove the console were found in a haynes manual i bought for 10.00 at advance auto hop this helps

Cant figure it out


First check all bulb sockets for corrosion, dirt etc and spray as needed with WD-40 or similar. Back-up and running lights are a different circuit/contact at bulb than turning and braking.

I bought the jeep with no manual! I need to change the light bulb in the rear and cant figure out how to get the cover off from the outside or get to the bulbs from the inside


No owners manual will tell you how to work on your vehicle?

If you see no screws on the outside, you obviously have to remove
or pull back the interior panels, to get the lamp assy off or access
to the bulbs

All vehicles are that way

Ok, today I replaced/removed several exterior lights: 1) I replaced the left headlight 2) I removed a burned out bulb from the high mount brakelight (local part store was out of stock, coming in...


I can help you out with the left turn signal not blinking. Maybe it's a flasher or the light bulbs aren't getting current through the wiring.

I can't help you out with the interior gauge lights not turning on when you turn the headlamps on. It may have to do with the headlamp switch, though.

I've never seen the lights on the radio not dim when the headlamp switch is turned on. hm.

Good luck on this repair.

I got a 2002 ford taurus and when i go to turn my headlights on the interior light dont work and the blinkers light up but they do blink when im turning, i was what it could be thats causing that thank...


Many turn signal lamps will have multiple bulbs in them. If "one" of the bulbs is faulty, the interior lamp or lamps will come on, indicating a bad bulb. You will need to turn on your left blinker and view the bulb and make sure all bulbs appear to be blinking on front and rear of the car, then repeat with the right blinker. If you find one that doesn't appear to look right or blinks faster slower or dimmer, then replace the bulbs in that turn signal. The interior light may begin working properly when you replace the "shorted" bulb for the turn signals. If it does not, check the fuses to make sure the "shorted" bulb didn't damage your fuse for the interior lights.

2001 Jetta Interior Climate Control Bulb


There is one bulb (for all three knobs) behind the center knob. Turn the knob to the straight up and down 12 o'clock position and pull the knob straight out. Wrap a soft cloth around the jaws of a pliers, that works the best. Pull the bulb out with a needle nose wrapped with a rubber band. The bulb is a sylvania 2721, available at most auto parts stores. You can also use a small piece of vacuum tubing to pull the bulb out. (pull straight out, don't twist it)

How do i replace interior light bulbs, and third brake light bulbs..etc....etc?


most of the interior lights can be replaced by popping off the cover and pulling the bulb. usually there are just a few plastic clips that hold it on. as for the third brake light, there are 2 i believe t16 or t17 star screws that hold the lens on. once you have that off, the rest is obvious.

Cant get my interior lights to come on when i open the door.


My 02 did the same thing, i don't know if you tried this, but turn the interior lights on with the dimmer switch, then back off. Then lock the car with the remote and hopefully when you unlock it the lights will start coming on.

2007 Kia rondo interior lights stay on when headlights turned on


I had the same problem for months. Finally took it to the dealer. The first time, they diagnosed is as a short in the rear interior bulb, and put in a new bulb. Got it home and still had the same problem.

The second time in, they figured things out. On the dash to the left of the steering wheel is a knob that controls the brightness of the dash lights. But, if this knob is all the way on, it turns on the interior lights and keeps them on. Just had to turn this knob down, and the problem was solved!

Interior light


No. If you see that the bulb was burned, you can replace it yourself, you dont need to take off the battery terminal since taking it off might cause more trouble to your car. dont worry you cant be electrocuted by a 12V dc by just replacing the bulb
