Check on the back of the bulb . There should be 3 wires on 3 pins If there is a spare pin then I would say that is where it is supposed to be.

Make sure the part store gave you the correct plugs and wires. Consult a third source for a firing order.

On your year the 02 sensors did more for fuel economy. Of course this was a major part. But it did not affect the performance of the car. they would usually run rich and use more fuel. If the wire is from the 02 sensors the check engine light would be on. If you have the early 95 , OBD1, It is getting harder to find shops that can hook it up to a daignostic computer. Later is the OBD2. Most all shops can hook up. The loss in acceleration is probably the fuel filter. At low end you will get plenty of fuel. but at the higher speeds the filter is clogged and. will not let the fuel flow through like it should. You will have pressure , but not flow.. Other things could be the catalitic converter and air filter.

What should I check and/or reset on a '94 Camaro to get it to start after a minor collision which deployed the airbags?

If fuel pump issue, check the fuel pump relay. I wasn't sure of engine size, may not make a difference. Check the relay wiring circuits. The pink wire is voltage to load side of relay, fuse protected, goes hot with the key on. You can use a test lite to check for voltage. The control side of relay, left side, needs voltage and ground, that bottom wire is a chassis ground. That top wire is voltage, should be hot with engine cranking, comes from pcm. Hopefully that relay is located behind driver side kick panel, to the left of foot-well. If it isn't located in that area, then, I don't know?

My husband replaced the turn signals & headlight & now car wont start

Hello! I sent a test procedure to you Wednesday evening but It appears you did not receive it ..This is the path for Battery and Ground to pull the crank relay which applies +12 volts to the starter solenoid..Either there is a fault in this path or the starter itself was damaged in the collision...Leaving the ignition switch when in start ...+12 volts on the Yellow wire goes to the Crank fuse (10A)...Other side of fuse is Purple wire to PCM C-2 Pin # 23...+ 12 volts at this point...PCM sends a ground on C-2 pin #76...Yellow/Black wire to crank relay....+ 12 volts from the PCM ABS fuse (10A)...via Park/Neutral switch to crank relay...Relay pulls and applies +12 volts on the Purple wire that goes to the starter...That +12 volts, if there,indicates a starter damaged in the collision...If not there chase it back until you lose it...Would you be so kind as to not rate my solution until the test procedure is accomplished...Send a comment..saailer

How do you replace a headlight on a 2006 lincoln town car (low beam - left side)

Open the hood. Remove the black plastic grill assssembly ( Laying horizontal between the radiator and front bumper). There will be a couple of plastic screws (or some other fastening system) for this part remove and set aside. There is another black plastic grill assembly standing vertical. Remove similar fastening devices and set aside. IF DURING THIS ENTIRE PROCESS there is ANY part that does not come off freely after removing a fastening device (plastic screw, metal screws, hex bolts, bolts) LOOK FOR A PLASTIC CLIP - unclip that as a final step in each of these processes. To continue, Each headlight is attached by three hex or phillips screws.- Remove them and set asside. There is a major clip attaching the headlight at the top. Unattach this and gently remove the entire light housing. The housing will be the unit containing all parts high beam, low beams, side lights, and blinkers. It is a nice tidy unit. To continue, look for a black plastic removable panel on the back allowing access to the back of the bulbs. Remove the 5 screws and set asside. You now have access to the bulbs. The bulbs are attached by a solid plastic clip. Grab the back of the plastic bulb housing and turn about a half of an inch to remove the bulb. Unattach the clip from the wirering harness and you will have the bulb removed. CAREFULLY remove the new bulb making sure not to touch the glass portion of the bulb with hands directly. Skin oils or other debris is not recommended to get on the bulb. Deliberately refasten the bulb wiring harness and replace to the back of the reflection housing. Reassemble all devices. Rinse wash repeat for the other side :)

This seems complex for the task at hand and it is. But from the perspective of repairing a front end after a minor collision is is wonderful. Enjoy...

Running lights don't turn on. indicator lamp flashes then goes out and headlights don't turn on

two things to consider here-has this car been in a front end collision and have you checked to see if the bulb in one light is burned out.wires for the light run across the front of the car and are easily damaged in a front end collision. also if a bulb is out you get this type of problem. It can be difficult to get top the bulbs. you need to remove screws just above the grille going into the core support and pull out on the grill/bumper cover to expose screws for the headlight then with the headlight loose pull it out a little and release the bulb. check the filament to see if it is broken
