I have a 1998 f150 all the lights hazards brake lights work but the turn signals don't also if my turn signal is in left or right position an I hit the brake tail lights go out need help thanks

Some of it sounds like a ground problem. The ground wire color for the rear lamps is black. One way to check a ground is to use a testlite connected to battery voltage, touch ground wire terminal or bare wire, if the lite comes on, the ground is good enough to turn on testlite. Ground will take the path of least resistance, It may be trying to ground through the circuit of another lamp. It can cause some weird problems.
See the splice, you may have to backtrack the ground wire to the splice, separate everything, check the grounds separately.3c39770e-a9f9-4d57-bf56-1d14bf071b82.jpg
I found a wiring diagram that I like better than the first. The top wires are voltage, the bottom is ground. At the lower rear lamps, the turn and brake lamp uses the same bulb filament, just not at the same. The lower brake lamp is wired through the turn switch. Your tail/park lamp is the brown wire for voltage.

Troubleshoot your lights

Fixing lights can be difficult:

You have a tail or brake light that doesn't work, but you replaced the bulb and no change. You'll have to troubleshoot, so buy a simple volt/ohm meter.

Be sure the power is off and no power on any of the socket pins. Then clean the light socket and connection pins with a stiff brush or steel wool.

First, measure all the light socket pins for power. If you don't see any voltage, must be a fuse out or a broken wire or you aren't getting a good solid ground reference.
Turn power off and make sure the socket ground is really ground by using the ohmmeter between the socket ground and a known good ground. If the ohmmeter reading is 1 or 2 ohms the socket is probably good. If the ohmmeter measures higher, then the ground connection is bad or ground wire is broken. Try to trace the ground wire, run your own wire if you have to.
Once the the socket ground measures ok, then you have to determine which hot pin is bad.
There are two hot pins, one for each filament, tail and stop light.
Pick one and measure the voltage referenced to the, now good, socket ground.
You should have power now, so try a bulb in the socket.

This Tip still in work.

Is there a fuel pressure regulator if so where is it located or is the fuel pump the only source of fuel pressure

Hi Richard, Im AL the owner of Big As Auto Repair.

Richard, the fuel is to create the fuel pressure that is needed. But, the pressure regulator is only to keep the correct pressure at the fuel rail. On almost every vehicle the pressure regulator is either on the fuel rail "OR" on the fuel pump module inside the gas tank. If you have no fuel pressure I would suggest checking for power and ground going to the fuel pump in the tank before buying any part. Because if you have power and ground at the pump then you will need a new fuel pump. If you don't have power and ground at the pump. You'll need to check for blown fuses and swap the fuel pump relay for one that is the same type in the fuse block. Hope this helps and please visit my auto-repair-website and give me thumbs up.

97 Silverado, heater/a.c. fan not working

Check for voltage and ground at blower motor connector, hvac turned on, if good voltage and ground with no blower action, suspect the blower motor.

If you missing voltage or ground we can backtrack the circuits.

No spark

Someone would check for voltage and a ground signal at the coil, then backtrack to the distributor.

Someone will need to check for voltage and a ground signal at the coil and backtrack to the distributor.
You may need a shop manual to get the test procedures for the ignition module.
It could also be a relay.

On my '98 grand cherokee i've replaced plugs, rotor, d'cap, and coil and still will not start. why?

Was it running before you replaced all of those? If so, then you need to backtrack and check that you got everything hooked up right.

If it wasn't running, you need to tell us a lot more indication other than it just won't run. Like what error codes you got, etc.

Glows plugs not hitting. truck wont start

There should be a glowplug relay and a timer. Check for power going to those parts which get power from the Keyswitch. Check your ground to the timer, sometimes the wire connections look clean, but they just don't work. The power won't go through the timer unless its grounded.

Backtrack the glowplug wires back to the firewall to find your parts.
