In about 1985 automakers started using plastics for tail light assemblies and ran a separate ground to the most convenient location for them, " the engineers". so run a wire to ground that you can reach and attach it securely. they basically use the same thing, but over 10 years they rust and lose contact. Also using that same ground make sure you are getting power to the light from the switch. Ignition on, signal on, and no light or power indicates the turn signal assembly in the steering column is broken and must be replaced. not difficult for mechanically inclined persons. tools needed- steering wheel remover tool, and ignition lock ring depresser.

Could be the flasher, or if it is a gm product it may be the light module. back in 2002 and up on gm trailblazers and light trucks had bad relays and light fixtures.

Front driver's side signal light does not work. Changed the bulb and it still does not work. The driver's side rear works and the passenger side works (front and back). Also, when the signal arm is pushed...


when a bulb fails on one side of the indicators the other bulb, same side, flashes faster, SO.you have just answered the question yourself,as you have replaced the bulb with a new one, the contacts for the new bulb are at fault.

I have a 1989 Buick Park avenue. A month ago all of the back lights stopped working. Tail lights, brake lights, reverse lights.


Check your fuses underneath the drivers side steering wheel. Flip the plastic cover over and there will be a diagram showing the fuse that controls the taillights/stoplamp. Pull the fuse out and replace it with the same number fuse and your taillights and brake lights will work again. If the fuses are ok, pull each taillight bulb out and replace it with a new bulb. Sometimes when one light bulb fails, all of them will fail.

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.
