Signal on the rear drivers side of my truck quit working

This is the second time this has happened. I have checked the fuses and the bulbs everything is fine with those items. The last time it happened the auto worker advised the bulb was laying on the computer board.

Pull the bulb out and look to see if the contacts are burnt. All of these trucks have this problem. You can replace the bulb, put some die electrice grease on it and bend the contacts back out, some times you will need to clean it also. Or you can spend the money and get a new socket, But that will cost money.

There are a few things it cold be. Moisture cold be getting in it, if the vehicle has been in a wreck a wire could have gotten pinched and i have seen people back there watercraft into the lake and not unplug there connector and it shorten there lights out. I know it will take time but get a creeper and trace your wires down lookin for frails , they should be in a cluster running from the back of passenger side rear, across to back drivers side then down the frame. Make sure your rear light is sealed and has no space for moisture to get in. I have seen alot of aftermarket lights let moisture in. If that doesnt work check your fuses and if thats not it then check your turn signal switch that is inside your steering column, thats what i found to be wrong with my wifes 87 ford bronco ll after i ruled out all the other things got ruled out. Good Luck and i hope I was helpfull. I know it can be frustrating.

BMW rear left hand side tail light and flasher not working also drivers window not working


The electric window could either be the fuse,switch, or window regulator motor at fault..Sometimes the window motor electric plug can vibrate loose or become loose from door slamming..Also the switch can become loose as well or contamination if you are lucky..You will have to remove door panel to inspect these components..and fuse panel..The light could be a faulty bulb..Check and replace bulb..before involving the signal indicator switch lever...If bulb is at fault go ahead and change bulbs at both rear sides..Do not try to repair signal switch because of air bag..If you can hold down on the turn signal switch and it works the switch is at fault...

Turn signal won't work


Start by checking the light bulbs. They are accessible in the trunk for the rear and in the bumper for the front. If bulbs are intact, then check your fuse box. Remember that you have two fuse boxes, one in the vehicle usually on the driver side and can be accessed as you open the door. You have a second fuse box under the hood usually on the driver side. Most fuses are labeled. With a test light, you should be able to determine if fuses are good or not. Good luck and happy motoring.

Indicators not working


That is a common problem when one of the turn signals bulbs is out. check the light bulbs on the side that is not working or the side that the dashboard flashes quicker. replace the light bulb front or rear. take a good look at the light bulb filament inside. some times is not easy to detect some other time the light bulbs will be light black powder inside if they are bad. if the light bulb does not fix it also check for the fuses may always be fuse as well.

Front driver turn signal quit. changed bulb, worked for short time, then quit. bulb OK. passenger side quit 1-2 months later. bulb OK. neither front emergency flasher work. automatic daytime front lights...


Check for head light (daytime)relay to be bad,this might have to do with the turn signals also,if the turn signals on this car,also have running lights in them,If this relay is not bad,replace the body control module.

95 lumina turn signals


make sure you replaced the correct directional light relay, and not the hazard relay. Check all fuses. check grounds at rear lights. If all of the following are good, your lumina would have a faulty multifunction switch.

2001 Explorer Sport ,Rear Driver Brake Light and Turn Sig. Broke


Rear lights are double filament bulbs one side for the lights other side for the brake/turn signals so it still may be a bulb. Do u have a test light or volt meter you can check to make sure u have power there when brakes or turn signals are activated. Or just try another bulb.
