Remove two bolts that secure the plastic panel on the underside of the front end of the car, directly below the turn signal housing. The panel will then hinge down allowing you to reach up and access the bulb socket, which has a lock ring that must be compressed while you turn the socket to remove it from the housing. If yours is like mine, the wires are too short to drop below the access panel, so you'll have to reach up with both hands to change the bulb. Also, if yours is like mine, you may see evidence that the bulb gets so hot that the socket shows evidence of burning and/or heat degradation. I'm actually on this site looking for information on a possible recall by Pontiac for this, or at least maybe an upgrade socket.

2001 ws6 6speed Trans am no start. Will crank over but will not fire. Can hear fuel pump turn on with key. Also smells like raw fuel. Fuel is new 91 octane.


Its flooded at this point. let it sit & plugs dry. Diagnose no spark problem, Don't keep turning it w/o spark. The oil is getting all the unburned fuel. Change that oil after u diagnose spark problem. could be coil, ignition relay, ect.

What would cause the right blinker light on the dash stay on but only when the headlights are on and blinker still blinks on my 2001 Pontiac trans am ws6 ?


That would be caused by a bad ground connection to either the front or rear parking/turn (probably rear) signal bulb socket. When the ground is bad, the parking light filament with find a ground through the blinker filament, then through the turn signal indicator, keeping it turned on. I have seen this on many cars over the years. Hope this helps, good luck.

This sounds like the wiper control module.Most of these are a module attached to the wiper motor but are replaceable seperate from the wiper transmisson.

Driver front turn signal does not blink. front


This may have more then one bulb in the front or possibly a bad socket try wiggling the new bulb in the socket to see if it will work.Compare all turn signal lights that come on the passenger side to those drivers side.Some vehicles also incorporate sidemarker lights with the turn signals.

Not sure of any recall on these and looked through most of the recalls on this vehicle but you can go to the parts store and buy a replacement socket and cut the wires and replace the socket.
