How do I fix my turn signals?


The wiring harness connects to the firewall and was probably jostled when you reached under the dash. Wiggle the wire harnesses under the dash while you have the key and turn signals on and a helper watching the front lights. When they come back on, then you found the problem harness.

Tip

Both Lower Brake Lights Not Working


Check Brake Light Bulbs: All cars have three brake light bulbs that create the brake light illumination affect. If the lower two bulbs fail no lower brake light operation will occur. I know what you're thinking, you might say two brake lights at once? But in reality one brake light went out at a time and you did not notice. People only tend to notice something when they almost run into the back of your car to help persuade them to inform you the brake lights aren't working. Remove either of the brake light bulbs to confirm the bulb is ok or burned. After the bulb has been removed inspect the filament and replace if failed. If the brake light bulbs are ok continue to the next step.

Checking the Turn Signal Switch: Most American cars are designed to have the brake light switch wiring intergraded into the turn signal switch. Because the brake light bulb and the turn signal bulb are one and the same the turn signal switch interrupts the brake light circuit and installs the blinker signal circuit when the turn signal switch is activated. If this switch fails it will not allow the brake light signal through to the brake light wiring. To test for this condition a car repair manual is needed to test incoming and outgoing electrical current. If brake light switch power is present at the turn signal switch but not at any outgoing brake light wires the turn signal switch has probably failed.

I need a fuse diagram for a 2006 Ford F250 2WD. My lights all work great on the PU but when I connect the trailer the lights work but no brake lights or turn signals.


If all the lights work properly with the trailer wiring not connected then the truck itself is fine. If attaching the trailer wiring causes the lights to permanently stop working on the truck then you are blowing a fuse and it will need to be replaced. Your owners manual will show you where the fuse panel is. You should be able to check the wiring plug at the back of the truck to be sure it is working properly with a test light and a helper. If the power for signals/brakes etc are not all working at the plug, then trace back and fix these. If all is good at the truck's plug, then the trailer wiring must be faulty. Again, go through it and fix anything that is broken or corroded. Of course it goes without saying, make sure all the bulbs are good.

I replaced light bulb and brake switch is there anything else that needs to be rp;acedto make brake light work


If you have already check fuses, and brake light's still don't work, it's going to be your turn signal switch, the brake light circit runs thought the brake light switch, if your car has a middle top brake light in back of rear window, most of the time that one will still work, and the turn signal will also work, but not the rear ones brake light's, when turn signal switch is bad, hope this was very helpful.

Just bought second hand 98 chevy lumina and someone stopped me saying I have no brake lights, so I checked and I only see a place for backup lights and turn signal lights. Why do I not have any break...


The brake light in the rear window and the main brake lights are on a different circuit. After the signal leaves the activating switch on the brake pedal arm, it splits. One circuit goes straight to the high mount brake light, the other goes into the turn signal switch. If the rear turn signals work but the brake lights don't, suspect the turn signal switch, not the bulbs and wires. Better to check this before removing and checking bulbs, wires and fuses. It is a common problem with the W-body cars like Lumina, Monte Carlo, Buick Regal, Olds Cutlass and Pontiac Grand Prix. (Approx 94-99 models). Part number is GM 190005031 (w/o radio accessory control) or 19005032 (with radio controls)

No passenger side brake light. right flasher module going bad .


Check the rear bulb socket. You might even try wiggling the wires on the back of the socket while you have the signal on.
