Question about 1995 Toyota 4Runner
My turn signal keeps going out. I know it is not the bulb because whenever I go to look at it all I have to do is push the bulb back in and then it begins to work. After driving for a while though it stops working again. What should I do?
Problem is there at the bulb, not the bulb itself, but the seating of the bulb in the light socket. The base of the bulb has two small tangs on it to keep it secure in the socket. You push the bulb in, and then turn it clockwise just a small amount for the tangs to catch in slots. Then the bulb cannot be pulled out of the socket without turning it back counterclockwise just a bit. If the bulb seats but still doesn't make good contact in the socket, the problem is the socket.
The base of the bulb has a button like contact point on it. That button contacts a similar button in the socket base. The buttons are electrical contact points. Your bulb and socket is not keeping the contact points together.

Problem solved, Since 3 of the 4 turn signals worked I did not fuse was a problem
but after checking the turn swithch, I pulleded out the fuse which looked ok, but when
I put it back in all the turn signal lights woked! Apparently just one part of the surface
of the fuse was corroded.

Tail lights and brake lights are two seperate things . There are different bulbs for each. When you put your lights on does the front parK lights com on ? Usually the are on the same circuit as the tail lights. Check for fuse first.
