SOURCE: turn signal bulb broke in socket.

you'll be ok using needle nose pliers and a tin of wd 40 lube. but don't go too crazy with the stuff as it doesn't really like playing with terminals. but in this case use the straw attachment, for in between the outer casing of the bulb an the inner casing of the socket. leave for a couple of minutes then use the needle nose pliers, grip the casing of the bulb, inner and outer, push the bulb in with the pliers and then twist.

Goodluck

SOURCE: how do I replace the

You have to take the covering in the trunk loose to get to the light sockets, they should turn left or right to remove, then don't touch the new bulb with your fingers as the acid on you skin wll make it go out faster than normal. the new bulbs should be flat socket type that snap in and out, use plenty of bulb grease when replacing all bulbs, helps with corrosion and water sealing.

SOURCE: 70 chevelle front turn signal does not work but

Hi, either the turn signal switch is bad or the wire has broken. First trace the wire back toward the switch to see if you can find a break. If you have a test light, ground the clip to a bare spot under the dash and shove the probe into the back of the turn connector (blue wire) at the base of the steering column. This connector is attached to the side of the column just above your feet. Turn the key and signal on to see if the light will blink. If it does, you know the wire is broken between that connector and the bulb. If it doesn't blink, replace the switch. Please let me know if you have questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

Replace rear signal light on driver side


Open the rear hatch, remove the screws that hold the rear taillight assembly to the vehicle. Find the socket for the bulb you need to replace and turn it counter clockwise. Remove the socket, then replace the bulb. Installation is the reverse.

Click on the link.
This is for turn signals. Get at the turn signal switch. See the purple wire, L terminal on top of turn signal switch in diagram, that should go hot with key on, use jumper wire from that terminal to one of the wires on bottom of turn signal switch in diagram, those are, front/rear, left/right turn signals. If the turns signals work properly with the jumper, but, other wise don't, the problem should be the turn signal switch. If it still doesn't work properly, you would have to check wiring circuits.
Sometimes a faulty ground can cause weird problems. Sometimes the bulb doesn't make good contact in the bulb socket? Try putting a little pressure on the bulb in the bulb socket, see if it starts working?

Rear driver turn signal does not work, now neither does the driver front turn signal. no passenger brake llight. bulbs replaced, sockets replaced, lens assembly replaced. everything works when pluged...


The problem has to be in the multi function stalk if all of those parts were replaced correctly. This is the actual turn signal switch on the steering column.

Is there a trick to getting to the rear turn signal on a 2003 ford focus hatchback. I had removed the screw to the lens cover but I still cannot gain access to the turn signal bulb to replace it.


Replacing tail/brake/backup lights and turn signal bulbs (coupe)

1. Make sure the headlamp control

is in the OFF position and then

open the hatchback.

2. From inside the luggage

compartment remove the wing nut

of the rear light assembly cover.

3. Using a Phillips screw driver

remove the screw. The lamp is still

retained by a spring loaded clip.

Remove by gently pulling out the

light housing.

4. Turn the bulb socket counterclockwise as far as possible and pull it

out.

5. Pull the bulb straight out of the socket.

Install in reverse order.

Check the bulbs if the bulbs are good suspect the panel that the bulbs go into. Which are also called the sockets you may have to replace the sockets this is not an uncommon problem.

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.

Rear tail / brake lights


Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Almost always, your described concern indicates a loose ground particularly on the driver side. What is required is to check the connectors leading to the driver rear side and/or a ground wire. Often, the problem would be the ground terminal is loose or corroded leading to the body of the vehicle. A temporary workaround is to determine which is the ground in the bulb socket (always the body) and wire a jumper wire to any exposed metal part of the rear end.

Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

Turn signal problem


step by step. 1.if other side rear works switch bulbs. if works replacement bulb no good. 2.doesnt fix it then carefully check wire to socket. if ok burnish the bulb contact in socket and outside a bit if socket uses outside as ground. 3. if this doesnt fix it; its out of my league and we need an expert. should be able to do this most american brand cars. oh! problem is that there is no complete circuit through the socket and bulb.
