Problem with turn signal when headlight is on


this sounds like a earthing problem , so check the wiring for the head lights, see if any wires are trapped between something, bare wire touching car body , anythingthat doesn't look correct, could also be the indicator lever itself with a problem , but check the headlight wiring first

Left front headlight goes off


Mine was doing the same thing. Worked sometimes, other times it didn't. When it wasn't working I could push it in from the front of the vehicle and it would work. I found that the entire light is one unit & instead of having a wire that plugs into the back like lights I'd always deal with, it has a plug on the back that plugs directly in when the light slides into place. Under the hood there is a little cover on each side near the headlight, this is where you lock the headlight unit in so that it stays plugged in. I found that both of my lights had come unlatched and the left one was not always making contact. Have one person push the light in while you use a philips head screw driver to turn the locking mechanism. It may require some strength to turn but you will hear it snap into place when it latches. I actually slide the whole headlight unit out and looked in while turning the latch with the screw driver to figure out which way I needed to turn it.

Left turn signal pops fuse on infiniti


Check front and rear lights to see if the wiring is arcing to the turn signal on the left side of the car. This is the best guess as it's simply a wiring problem and nothing else, as there is too much current being forced through the turn signal when the headlights are on. Headlights draw much higher current than the intermittant turn signals and therefore pops the fuse.

How do you replace the front turn signal on a 2005 Buick Terraza?


Changing front, right turn signal on 2005 Buick Terraza: Open hood; when facing the front of vehicle, the right turn signal is on the passenger side (left). The headlight assembly needs to be removed to easily reach the turn signal. On my vehicle, there is a 10 mm screw on the left side. Remove it. There is L-shaped pin on the right side of the headlight assembly. Swing the pin counter-clockwise (to the left). Pull the pin straight up to remove. The headlight assembly is now loose, but there is a pin snapped in a socket on the back of the assembly that still holds the assembly. Pull the headlight assembly hard and straight to the front of the vehicle. When it snaps loose, the assembly is now held just by the rubber gasket surrounding the assembly. You need to gently work the right side of the gasket out of the grill cowling. The assembly should pull straight out. The wires are long enough to lay the headlight assembly in the engine compartment. Finally, the turn signal is now accessible. Twist the light holder counter-clockwise and pull out the light holder. Change the bulb. Do not punch your man-card for credit until you have successfully reinstalled the headlight assembly. It goes back in a little easier the second time. Once you have put the L-pin in place, the screw back, and successfully tested the lights, you can now punch your man-card.

I give the mechanical engineers and designers a D-minus instead of an F only because I was successful on the first try. No light bulb on anything commonly used by people should be this hard to figure out.

How to change left turn signal bulb


Rear. 2 retainers PLUS a very tight ball socket holding the light assembly into place. Be ready to catch the tail light when you pop it of the ball socket.
Front. Use the headlight removal tool in the tool kit. Open front bonnet and push down and remove tear shape trim on headlight side in question. Place headlight tool onto spline and with one hand ready to "catch" the headlight, turn the tool until headlight pushes forward. Then remove headlight by hand and replace globe as required. Be careful of bayonet fitting. Can be fragile.

One headlight is not as bright as the other one


Is the focus of the headlight incorrect and should be adjusted?
Have you checked the reflective surfaces to ensure they are clean and the headlight glass is clean?
And finally - maybe the other bulb is of higher quality/light output. I notice a significant difference between different brands of bulbs sometimes.
