Rear turn and stop lights won't work. Replaced bulbs, but still out. Can't locate a blown fuse.

On some vehicles when a light is burnt out it turns that whole section off on others the lights are individual and can burn independently. ----------------------------------------------------------------------

Replace 2007 saturn aura high mount brake light

If its an LED panel, you won't be able to replace the bulbs, you will have to replace the whole unit. That being said, an LED unit should not have burned out in 5 years. I would find someone with an electrical tester first and make sure you have current going to the light before you go ripping anything out or paying $100 for another one. A simple volt meter should work, just unplug the wire harness and test the end coming from the car when you have your foot on the brakes. It should read some current coming from the fuse box. That should at least get you started.

Emergency brake light on my 1994 Toyota Camry won't shut off even after I replaced e-brake light switch.

If you disconnect the wire(s) coming from the switch, does the light say on? If so, there may be a short to ground fro the switch to the lamp. You would need to replace or have the wire replaced.

Electrical - won't start. Hooked up fan to heater, smoke came out from under the hood, car won't start. Lights work, any key related electrical functions won't work

Your fan or heater likely shorted out and burned up, causing your one of the main fuses to blow due to the spike in current. You will need to determine what burnt up and replace it before replacing the fuse, or you may create a fire hazard or cause further equipment damage. Also double check any changes to wiring to make sure that everything is hooked up properly.

Have a 2006 Chevy Silverado. The left brake light keeps shorting out. Turning light OK.

check the contacts in the socket itself, with the newer tail light and brake light bulbs and the thin wire they use for contacts, any dark or slightly burned areas will cause the bulbs to burn out prematurely

You may want to change the blower motor as a precaution.
Do all the fan speeds work?
If not .....change the fan resistor board which is right beside the fan at the same time you change the blower fan motor.

Change head light on 97 mustang

The actual light? or just the bulb inside the light?... If you mean the whole light then pop the hood and look around the lens and you will a few screws that hold it in place. Remove and replace. If you mean the bulb, pop the hood and and look behind the light cover and you will see where the light bulb attachment screws into the back. Unscrew the attachment and remove the bulb. When you replace with the new bulb be careful to not touch the bulb with your bare hands as a chemical reaction will cause the bulb to burn out faster than normal. Put it all back together as it was before and you are good to go.

How do I replace a fog lamp in my 2003 GMC Sierra hd

are you talikn about just the bulb? or the whole light?
For the bulb just unplug wiring from the back of the bulb and twist bulb and pull, do not touch the bulb of the new light the oils from your fingure will and can cause the bulb to burn out premature

the entire ligh has two pop rivets one on each side remove those. there is also an adjuster knob remove the knob and the spring pull the light off and replace with new.. you may want to mark the location of the adjuster knob so that on reassembly you know where the adjustment was for proper light position

Bulbs keep burning out

When you replace headlights in today's cars, DO NOT TOUCH THE GLASS OF THE BULB!. Handle the bulb only with the packing material the bulb ships in, or with a clean dry cloth.The oils in your skin will cause premature failure of the bulb.

Also, check the sockets (car side) carefully to make sure they are not burned.

NAPA or Auto Zone will have the bulb in most cases it is one unit and you have to replace the whole thing but by going there and looking at the bulb you will see what you have to do
