Cosmetic Lights on front of car

I hit something with my car a few months back and it popped out the lights that are next to the turn signal. They are fake lights, purely cosmetic but I would like to replace them. Where can I find them and does anyone know exactly what they are called?

My tail lights won't turn on in my 98 Acura integra all my other lights work my brake lights and my lights I front work but my rear lights won't work I keep getting pulled over what could it be


Hi Justin.

My first thought on this would be to check your fuses. The tail lights, brake lights, turn signals, and all four front headlamp filaments (left and right, low and hi beam) have their own fuse. This makes sure you don't lose all your lights if one bulb shorts. Take a look in your owners manual (or just pop the fuse panel, they're usually labeled on the back of the panel or lid) and look for a fuse marked something like 'tail light'. More likely than not, that's the problem.

After that, the next thing to look at would be the bulbs themselves. Unlikely you'd burn both out at once, but if they lights are dead you'll get no light.

Hope this helps!

Hi Everyone, I have a 2009


Bad grounded,u must ceck the signal (12V on the dash,empiric u can do it with a bulb and a wire,ceck every wire terminal under the dash instrument also the terminals from the back breaklight,eliminate the hipotese of a bad grounded instalation).Bad plugs (cleaning spray also helps).Main fuse/relay under the hood.Best guess:ceck the alternator charge rate can be overcharging making the bulbs /fuses/relays get burned.Inspect battery for acid over (overcharge signal).Ceck link alternator/starter/motor to chasis ground.Cheers,hope u deal the problem,let others know.

What wiring do i need to check when i hit my breaks and my head lights pop up?


Now that's funny! Rear fixed...front pops! Since the rear is where the work took place you need to check for crossed wires at the brake lights and turn signal lights. If there is uneven current draw on the circuits, the lights in front could be getting some of the power. Brake lights get the most power in the rear bulbs!

Suddenly, No tail lights, brake lights, turns signal or back up lights At 83000 miles, 6 months ago, replaced head gaskets. 1 week later, service engine soon light came on. Tech said it was an oxygen...


just look for the blackened/burned pin on the rear light plastic connector and sand it down to re-establish a good electrical connection and save yourself $800 big ones on replacing the multiswitch.

CHECK TURN SIGNAL FUSE.IT COULD BE BLOWED OR YOU HAVE FAULTY TURN SIGNAL SWITCH.BECAUSE BACK LIGHTS AND TAIL LIGHTS SHARE SAME CIRCUIT WITH TURN SIGNAL SWITCH.

Signal lights, fuse box and signal light relay in 2001 Volkswagen


The bulbs on these cars can be delicate. Some get replaced every year or so-( headlights, tail and brake) and some I've never touched in 8 years (my front turn signals and marker lights)

The fast blinking occurance is normal when a turn signal bulb goes out.

The rear lights are common to blow, I keep spares in the glovebox.

Make sure you were given the correct bulb, check to see that it works and isn't defective. Also there is an empty spot in the rear bulb holder- make sure you didn't mistakenly pop a bulb in there cause' it won't work.

The front right signal light is in the right headlight housing. Open the hood and on the back of the housing there are two plastic caps. One is curved and one is rectangular- you want to take off the rectangular one.

Open the drivers door and on the side of the dash there's a cover. This is the main fuse block. Use a coin or carefully with a screwdriver pry it open. To check a fuse pull it out, noting exactly where it came from, and visually inspect it to see if it is blown.

Fuse # 2- turn signal system
Fuse #4- License plate lights
Fuse #7- back up lights
Fuse #13- brake lights
Fuse #22- parking and side marker lights, right
Fuse #23- parking and side marker lights, left

The turn signal flasher is integrated into the hazzard button in the center of the dash. If all else is good and you suspect the flasher is bad, which is a good possibility, call a VW dealer and have them run your VIN# to check for recalls. The hazzard switch for some cars around your year had a recall on em'.

1998 Lincoln Town Car: No turn signals, 4 way flash, brake lights


If only your brake light in middle of rear window works then your other bulbs are bad. If brake lights all work in the back than bulbs are good. If you put turn signal on right or left and the bulbs light in front and back then you need to change multifunction light control box under dash. My understanding is it cost $600 new. So I would try used.

Electrial problem with rear lights


Sounds like you need to find the short in your wiring. Follow from the back to the front.

Brake light and turn signal light not working


Did the new lens come with new sockets? If not damage may have occured there that you cant see. only other possibilty is wiring damage in the rear that may be hard to see. The condition you describe is simple "backfeeding" if you look hard enough youll either find bad sockets or damaged wires close to the lens that took the hit. Hope this helped. Thanks
