Im not positive but it looks very similar to my moms 2006 honda accord which goes through bulbs like there nothing...on her car in order to change the bulbs you actually have to pop the hood and look down towards the light and you can see the bulb make sure that you take out the blinker bulb and not the low beam bulb also if it is on the right side you may have to remove the battery to see the bulb so look on the left side first and if you can see the bulbs then you will know if you need to take the battery out or not

Right rear turn signal and brake light don't work. Bulb is good, front turn signal flashes fast


YOU NEED THE LIGHT SOCKET.UNFORTUNATELY THAT PART IS NOT AVAILABLE AT THE DEALER OR AFTERMARKET.THATS WHY THE DEALER WANTS TO SELL YOU THE LIGHT ASSEMBLY BAR.THE SOLUTION IS TO GET A USED ONE AT THE AUTO WRECKAGE OR SIMPLY SWAP THE SOCKET WITH THE REVERSE LIGHT SOCKET AND THAT WILL SOLVE YOUR PROBLEM.BOTH SOCKETS USE THE SAME LIGHT BULB #3057.

Turn signal lights not working. turn on emergency flashers and the right signal flashes and bath back lights and the front right flash but the left front don't. any idea's


The 2 filament on the LH Front turn signal is most likely burned out, ...........or the ground to it, & the entire socket needs replaced. Caution lights, send signals to ALL FRONT & REAR lights. All turn signal lights must be in working order, as it is a "pulsating" currect surge sent to the bulbs, LH or RH, depending which direction you wisk to turn. If 1 filament is broken, the circuit is incomplete, & no flash will occur. Usually you will get one light that stays on, & the front or rear missing lighting, is the one whichis the culpret.

Replace front right turn signal bulb


I replaced the front right turn signal on my 2005 Pontiac Montana by reaching up from underneath. I tried removing the battery but the opening from above was too small. I was able to pull the ground effects open enough to get my arm in. When you reach the bulb holder feel for two wings on the bulb socket and give the whole socket a quarter turn to and it will release. The wires are long enough so the entire bulb holder will drop down below the vehicle so you can easily replace the bulb.
Reverse the step to put it back in. You will not be able to see what you are doing so I had someone guide me by watching from above. Took less than 10 minutes once I decided to change the bulb from the bottom. I did not need to jack the vehicle up or use ramps.

How do you replace the front turn signal bulb? I am having a difficult time.


turn signals are replaced one of two ways from the inside or the outside. #1 If they are replaced from the outside there will be a couple of screws on the out side of the lens take these out and the whole lens will come out turn the socket on back of lens and the bulb will be right there push bulb in and turn change bulb and reassemble. #2 you have to get at it from under the hood look from on top of signal or look up from under car you must get to the socket turn it and the bulb will be there push bulb in and turn replace bulb.

Right front turn signal not working at all right rear flashes fast? 2004 Impala


Sounds like your front turn bulb burnt out. When the turn signal operates fewer bulbs it works faster. You need to change the right front bulb.

Replace front driver signal light bulb


Depending on whether it is the front or the back turn indicator light will determine on what needs to be done. If it is the front turn indicator light open the hood of the car you may need to take the entire headlight out. The headlight may have screws, take the screws out then the front light will come out from the outside of the vehicle replace the burned out bulb. The bulb should snap right in and then put the headlight back in make sure you put all screws back in from the inside of the hood. Step2 If it is the back turn indicator light, go through the trunk of the vehicle. If there is a panel covering the lights you must unscrew the panel and then replace the burned out light bulb. Some panels can be folded down without removing all of the screws to access the lights. This light may not require for you to pop the entire light out you maybe able to just replace the bulb. After you have replaced it screw the panel back into place. The back light should not require the entire light to be lifted out just a simple bulb replacement. Step3 In replacing either the front or the back indicator light you must gain access to the turn signal housing which is usually in the same case as the headlight or your rear lights. It is very helpful to also get the owners manual out this will tell you exactly what type of bulbs you will need to get to replace the indicator bulb.
