Check the fusebox. It may be under the dashboard and/or under the hood, depending on the make & model of the vehicle. If your vehicle has glass tube fuses, you 'll notice one that's blackened in the centre or missing a piece of the wire. If it's the coloured plastic plug type, you are looking for one that's blackened in the centre or missing a piece of the metal in the centre. Either way:
1) it will look different from the rest so check carefully.
2) replace the fuse with one that has the same amperage as the burnt one.

a) Tube type: amperage number will be stamped on the shiny metal end.
b) Coloured plastic plug type: Besides using the colour codes, there is normally a number stamped on the side. If you can't read it, pull another fuse that has a similar colour and read the amperage.

SOURCE: same problem: door ajar light was on, dome light

Check fuse 23, 27 and 33 inside the vehicle. Chances are you blew a fuse when the dome lamp shorted. The modules should be okay.

How to replace bulb in front bumper turn signal housing 1995 jag xj6


hello,
  • Identify the blown bulb. Note that if a headlight bulb has blown, the dip beam is on the outside and the high beam is on the inside. Turn off the ignition switch and light switches.

  • Open the hood and replace any blown headlight bulbs. Press the plastic spring clips and remove the bulb holder from the assembly. Pull the bulb out of the bulb holder and replace it with a new bulb. It only fits one way. Be sure not to touch the bulb's glass. Replace any parking lights at the same time, they are in the headlamp unit too.

  • Remove the front turn signal light unit in the bumper to change the turn signal bulb. Push gently on the inside edge and insert a blade between the bumper and the lens at the outside edge. Compress the spring and remove the lens. Fit a new lamp by inserting it into the plug. The side marker light is changed using a similar process.

  • Open the trunk to replace the rear fog light, stop light, tail light, reversing light and turn signal light. Remove the rear light cover and turn the bulb holder fastener 90 degrees counter clockwise. Remove the expired bulb, fit a new one and replace the parts, turning the bulb holder clockwise.

  • Thanks..

    How do I get to the backup lights to replace them? Does the clear cover next to my license plate just pop off? I have a 1988 Cadillac Eldorado Biarritz, 2 door. Thanks for any help.


    No u have to open your trunk,when u open it look down just behind the light u should see what looks like three or four big plastic wing nuts unscrew these and the whole light assembly will pull out so be careful not to drop it once u get this off the light to be changed should be on the back of the light assembly gently twist the bulb holder piece Counter Clock wise it should come out easy,pull old bulb out replace with new one ,turn the bulb holder clock wise to put back in,and reverse the steps putting the light assembly back just remember not to tighten the black wing nuts in the trunk to tight

    Open the Back and unscrew the tail light screws on the inside of the door jam. The whole tail light assembly will come out. Twist the bulb socket counter clockwise, pull the bulb out. Place new bulb in the sockett, place sockett back in tail light and turn clockwise till it stops. Place tail light back in hole, put screws back in to door jam to hold tail light in.

    The dome light does not come on when the doors are open. I replaced the light bulb, but it still doesn't work. What should I do now?


    Hi,
    where the door hinges to the cab [ where it open and closes] there is a spring loaded button type plunger. This is spring loaded so when the door is closed the 'ground' is not able to connect. When the door is open the spring fully extends and makes contact with the ground wire. If all other interior lights are working most likely the problem is in or near this piece. First check to see if when you manually turn on the overhead light and or other interior lights that the others do indeed work and the dome light doesn't. If this is the case check where the bulb went in FIRST - pull the new bulb our and inspect CLOSELY that the unit is also working properly - there is a small spring here too that makes sure the bulb is making good contact.
    Between these two [ if all other lights are working] you should get some light on the subject.
    Hope this works for you.

    Maybe check to see if your button next to your headlights switched is pushed in or out?

    How do you remove headlight bulb on mercedes 1997 sl? Have already opened the plastic cover, unplugged electrical wires, unscrewed collar. How does the bulb come out?


    all you have to do is pull at this point. sometimes they get a little "stuck" in there so move up and down until the bulb comes loose. be sure not to touch the new bulb with bare fingers. if you can, get latex gloves to do this. simply install the new one reversing all the steps you already told me. cheers

    Break light problem


    Do you know if the brake light bulbs are working? (are the bulbs good?). (the bulbs have two parts, one for brake lights the other for running lights)
    If the third brake light bulb is working the brake lights should be with good light bulbs.
