Question about 2005 Honda Civic

Front left running light does not work, but flasher does

Have tried swapping out for new socket and tried 2 new bulbs. Both elements appear normal, but when lights turned on, the yellow running light does not come on, however, when the turn signal is activated, the other element does blink appropriately. Where could the problem be? Thanks

It sounds like there is either an open in the circuit or may one of the pins in the connector is bent back and not making a good connection.

Left bleaker and break light not working. Turn signal works bleaks faster than right side.


Has the vehicle been in an accident on the left rear side. First check the bulb to be sure it is not defective, trade it out with the side that works properly to test. If the bulb works well then My thought are you may have a shorted wire. The turn signal flasher works by heat build up within the flasher the heat is caused by the load of the bulbs, the load heats the metal spring causing it to open the circuit then as quickly as it cools down the circuit closes again lighting the bulbs.
There is also a possibility of a defect in the turn signal mechanism on the steering column. The turn signal switch on many models does three different things on many models that use the same bulb element / or bulb for brake and turn on rear of vehicle. It controls the circuit for brake light by sending power both left and right side rear when turn signal is in neutral position then when turn signal is in left turn the switch cancels brake light power to left side rear and supplies flasher power to left side while maintaining brake light supply to the right side rear, and so on opposite when the right turn is chosen on turn signal switch. The turn signal indicators on the dash normally run off the same circuit as front turn signal bulb only which is also controlled by turn signal switch. Front has turn signals but no brake light.
I think there is an additional load on the left side rear turn circuit and it could be either a wire that is shorted or the turn signal switch if the same bulb element is used for both functions.
Often times if trailer lighting is connected the flasher will also blink a little faster because of the extra load of additional bulbs.

Right front side turn signal does not work replaced all bulbs and checked fuses headlight flashers work when hazards are on front to back except driverside turn signal ,in dash right stays solid left


I don't believe it would be a bad ground for just one light. It could be a wire, a socket connector, or the bulb socket itself. See if the wire has power at the socket when signaling left, with key on. If there is power, probably a bad socket or connector. If no power, check for power coming from flasher-the wire going to front left, or driver's side. If you have power from the flasher, but nothing at the socket, the wire has probably broken.
Good luck.

The left rear turn signal on my 1998 Aurora will not flash. According to the Owners manual the correct lamp is a 3057. I have tried 2 new 3057 bulbs they light up but won't flash. The right turn...


Normally, it means either the front or the rear bulb is burned out. If front and rear bulbs are good, and that means both lamp filaments in both bulbs are good. It could be the flasher, a bad ground, a bad bulb socket, or the turn signal switch.

Left flasher makes buzzing noise when engaged and will not flash


The flasher bulbs are 2 element bulbs. If one element burns out, the other one has too high resistance since the 2 elements are in parallel. I had this issue too, and replaced the flasher bulbs and it was fine. The upside to this is that it only cost about 4 bucks for a 2 pack of bulbs. and it was only 2 small screws to remove the lights in the front, and 2 nuts to remove the rear light assembly. You have to pull back the trunk lining to access the rear fasteners though.

2008 Chevy Cobalt front right turn signal is not working. Back right signal blinks fast. Left signals work just fine. I tried replacing the bulb and it did not work. Do I need to replace the...


No - headlight ok.
The reason that the Right turn signal blinks fast is that there is half the normal load (resistance)
on the right side, since the Right front turn signal isn't working.
Since you replaced the Right front turn signal bulb, your problem lies in the bulb socket or
the wiring to the socket.
(1) try cleaning out the socket - there's probably a contact problem in the socket. You
may need to squeeze the contacts together to provide good contact to the socket contact.
(2) if contacts inside the socket are ok, try back-probing the socket - to make sure that the
socket is getting 12V DC to light the bulb. Replacing a bulb socket is easy, and commonly done.
Any auto parts dtore should be able to sell you a new socket - its just a matter of cutting out the
old one, and then splicing in the new one. Most shops will use small wire nuts, buried under several
wraps of E-tape (electrical tape).
(3) if bulb AND socket ok, you have the worst problem known to man - a wiring fault. In this case,
you'll want to run a new wire from the flasher module (under the dashboard) to the turn signal.

Maybe I'm missing something, but have you tried replacing the bulb? Sounds like you have a dual-element bulb, where the flasher (high intensity) element is out but the normal low-intensity element is still OK. Had the same thing happen on my Buick.

Turning Lights Not Working


If you put a 2 element bulb in a single bulb elemet socket you would or could destroy the flasher unit. Especially if it is a electronic flasher try replaceing the flasher but get mechanicl flasher they last longer.

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.
