Question about 1995 Pontiac Grand Prix

1 Answer

Left directional does not stay blinking

I know it isn't the bulb or flasher. It only stays on when i wiggle pivot handle, but handle doesn't snap back after left turn is completed. Right side works just fine. could it be the pivot handle or the directional switch in the steering column that is causing the problem, also i need to know how to remove the steering wheel locking plate to get to the directional switch. I have removed the steering wheel. thanks for the earlier help.

The locking plate is held in place by a retention ring that fits in a groove on the steering column. There are several ingenious ways to get it off but you might as well go rent/loan the correct tool as its one of those things that comes off easier than it goes on. The tool will depress a small but very strong spring behind the plate so the ring comes off easily, carefull dont let it fly off and get lost. If the turn signal stalk is not broken this is a good sign as you say that the right side works, you should be able to see what is going on once you have it opened up. Sometimes the turn signal actuator assy can be taken apart and cleaned the springs adjusted and reassembled. If you dont have the experience or the patients just get a new one, but it can be done.

I doubt it is the flasher since it handles both sides. A more likely cause is a faulty bulb socket or wiring problem.

I don't know how to change the head light on my 1997 Jeep grand Cherokee. there doesn't seem to be any screws to loosen the light.


Hi Clint,

I just want you to know that you are not crazy or blind!

The reason you cannot find any screws is because you are dealing with a snap-together vehicle.
If you only want to replace the bulb, you can reach around the radiator support and twist the bulb retainer to remove it and the bulb. If you are wanting to replace the ENTIRE headlamp assembly, follow the instructions below.

REMOVAL

Grasp lower edge of headlamp lens and pull straight back (away) from Grille Opening Reinforcement (GOR) . Disengage lower adjuster pivots from lens assembly.
Grasp upper edge of headlamp lens. Pull straight back (away) from grille opening reinforcement (GOR). Disengage upper adjuster pivot from lens assembly.
Rotate bulb lock ring counter clockwise. and remove ring and bulb from lens.
INSTALLATION

Replace by seating the assembly in the lamp housing and turning the lock ring 1/8 turn clockwise to secure.
Align upper adjust pivot into headlamp opening and snap into place.
Snap lower adjuster pivots into place.

I have a 2000 Ford Escort. My left turn signal inside is blinking real fast. Outside it isn't working. Also, the brake light and Haz.Flasher isn't working on the outside either on the left side....


In the fuse panel with the fuses inside the car there are two big round units plugged into the fuse panel, one is your turn signal flasher one is your hazard flasher. I would start with those and move to other things if that doesn't fix it. Hope this Helps.

try your emergency flashers, do they blink at a normal speed? if yes, replace flasher for turn signals.if not check the bulbs on the side that blinks fastest,even if they look good there could be a broken filiment.tap on the bulb, if the filiment moves it's a bad bulb.

Left brake light stays on


Usually when your signal blinks rapidly it indicates a blown bulb.   Switch on your four-way flashers and check your bulbs at each corner.  On the brake light staying lit, check to see if the left-rear bulb is installed correctly and is the correct bulb for the application.  I've seen people force bulbs in sockets causing the braking element of the bulb to light instead of the parking element.  The braking element is much brighter than the parking element.
