Question about 1992 Toyota Pickup

1 Answer

Lighting problem I step on the brake and the left turn signal light comes on inside. At the same time the left front turn signal lights up as well as the left rear. I checked all the bulbs and they are fine. It only happens with the left side.

    Before you pay someone $100/hr ;



    Is the brake and turn signal in the same bulb ?

    Does the turn signal blink ?

    Will the front turn light come on if the rear turn bulb is removed ?

    If you switch the left and right turn signal bulbs does the problem switch to the right-hand side?



    You can place something on the brake pedal and start moving some wires and see if the signal light goes off.



    What was the work you did to the truck before the problem started ?

You have a short in the circuit. It would be really hard to diagnose it yourself, take it to a shop.

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.

Turn signals and high beams


First check around all the lights (front, rear, headlight, turn signal, parking, fog, etc..) for loose, broken, or bare wires, and/or loose , broken, or bad connectors. Any of these could cause the lighting to short. If everything is in good working order, then the problem will most likely lie with switch inside the column (the lever).

Brake/Signal Lights Problem.


Sounds like a ground problem to me. Bulbs are not getting there ground to complete the circuit so they backfed through the other bulbs.

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

Electrical problem


Find the ground wire on one of the lights and add another ground wire to a good clean metal surface and see if that fixes the problem. It defently sounds like a ground problem at one of the lights.
